That's right they serve Elk and Bison burgers. I personally avoided those, but others in the party went for it. Very busy on a Friday lunch time, TV screens everywhere so you never miss a thing. Service not so great. Taco salad ok. Wings brilliantly hot. Ok kind of a place.

This is a great place to go for really good and filling sandwiches. Choice ranges from the traditional to the exotic

My wife and I have been there 3 times in the last 6 months. More than any other restaurant in town. We originally went because we like trying new places. We've ordered several burgers in those visits, with my favorite being the one pound burger, which I did finish. The spicy cheese curds are the best curds I've had, anywhere.... More

This place has a large selection of food. They have great burgers and wings. If you like cheese curds at the MN state fair, you should try them here they're great! We also really like the mini doughnuts for dessert. The dining is casual and a sports bar type atmosphere, but it's great for a family dinner. The wait staff... More

Buffalo Tap is a great place for casual dining. We had burgers and beers and weren’t disappointed. Service was fast and friendly and our burgers were prepared exactly as we ordered them.

They have lots of craft beers and very good food and ambiance. What I really like is that they offer elk and buffalo burgers in addition to a zillion beef options. I had the elk burger which was great (if you like elk). I would definitely return. Prices are a little high for a local sports bar but worth it... More

Really enjoy going to visit Buffalo Tap when we are lucky to be in Minnesota on our trips from Australia. I am sad there is not one near home. The food was delicious. I had a beautiful Elk burger that was cooked to perfection. The dessert was just so awesome. Maybe it is good it is so far away as... More

I go here often for the burgers. They have buffalo, elk and beef, with an incredible list of toppings and options. You can find walleye, chicken wings, chili, soups, etc., on this menu. They have great food. It is always busy and the wait staff are very good as well. You can find $10 burgers up to $25 burgers (2... More

I had the Cod. Not that good. My husband had a mushroom Swiss and it was great. We love the atmosphere.

My wife and I eat here most Tuesday evening as we love there wings, sometimes we meet neighbors. Always great food and fun talking with bartenders Brian, Dan or Todd, whichever is on working that night. It can get very busy on Friday and Saturday evenings and will be a line waiting sometimes but worth the wait, on those busy... More
