My boss took 16 people out to dinner at

My boss took 16 people out to dinner at the Buckhorn Exchange Restaurant last night, 4/24/12. Several of the guests were visitors from Switzerland, and we were hoping to give them a feel of the ""old west"". The ambiance was nice, but the food was awful. So spicy that the meals couldn't be finished. At $60 per person, it was a great disappointment. We won't ever use this restaurant again. Next time we'll go to The Fo... view more

Worst Experience in 37 years

Poor service, the food was really bad, and management has been unresponsive to my complaints. I had not been to the Buckhorn in over a year. My previous impression was that the food was better than average and the atmosphere great. Although pricey, it seemed like a good choice for entertaining an out of town guest. My recent visit left me feeling embarrassed to have brought our out of town guest to the Buckhorn. ... view more

Not what it use to be

Last couple visits, the buffalo and elk has been very poor quality. Which is very dissappointing for a place that charges $36-$41 for a typical prime rib or medalions.

The WORST eat out experience ever!!!

Horrible food. Meat is overcooked, taste like rubber. Don't order the ""Rocky Mountain Oysters"", tasteless. It's not the ball that's bad. It's the way they prepared it. In fact, it's not gourmet food. They WARM (frozen stuff) instead of cooking from fresh. And the soup, it's worse than dog-food in 3rd world countries. Lots of travelling and having tasted food around the country and overseas prove this place to be a ... view more

Overpriced Road K!LL

What an expensive lesson.. $186 dollars (less tip} for three of us to sit outside with the flies and wind; just to eat mediocre food. Ostrich, yak... stuff like that. We had three entrees, three beers and 2 ice tea's.... for $186 Major highlights below...\r \r > Flies were horrible oustide\r > Despite being outside in the heat.. food got cold before we could eat it.\r > The ""famous"" bean soup = dishwater ... view more

Very Dissapointing

I took my fiance here for a special birthday dinner with pretty high expectations. Needless to say, we were both very disappointed. The food was okay - nothing that would justify the price they were charging. The staff was awful. Our waitress was inept. And before dinner, we stopped at the bar for a cocktail and had to deal with rude bartender. I implore you to save your money and stay away from this place.

Don't go if you are hungry

This place must be surviving on its great decor and history alone. Service is pleasant if you are dropping the bucks, not if you aren't. I have to suspect that the good reviews are plants--the food is simply sub par. What is good is served in tiny portions. Is rattlesnake always as tough as a old cowboy boot?

Ruined a perfectly good evening

I was unimpressed by the service at the Buckhorn Exchange. Despite there being several rooms filled with empty tables, the staff moved us from upstairs happy hour area and tried unsuccessfully to squeeze our party into a table that was obviously too small to accommodate us. When they found out that not everyone in the party planned to eat dinner, they acted very cool towards us (even though we'd called ahead to let... view more

I was very disappointed in the service and I felt looked down upon. The main hostess/owner was clearly making us feel unwanted when not everyone was wanting dinner. I feel they only care about the customer when they are spending their entire paycheck at dinner.\r They had no idea that the people pretty well off and I convinced them to come experience the buckhorn, they were devastated when they discovered they cou... view more
