Dinner at the Wooden Nickel
Bob worked overtime this past Saturday (August 14th). Shortly after Bob came home from work he suggested that we go on a day trip to Erie Bluffs State Park, which I blogged about here.
On our way back home from the state park, we drove through Edinboro, PA. We ate dinner at the Wooden Nickel Restaurant, which is part of Wooden Nickel Buffalo Farm. We ate Bison cheeseburgers, French fries and, for dessert, a slice of homemade pie. The Bison didn’t have a wild or gamy taste to it. Our meals were delicious.
After dinner we walked around behind the restaurant to the petting zoo. We saw chickens, goats, a peacock and a couple alpacas.
The buffalo were grazing as we left the farm.
I mentioned in my blog post about Erie Bluffs State Park that we want to make a return visit to the state park. We want to return to the Wooden Nickel Buffalo Farm as well. According to its website, tours are given of the buffalo farm. I would love to go on a tour of the farm!
We made one more stop on the way home from our day trip. I’ll write about that stop in my next blog post.

Linda thanks for the post. I checked out their website. If Wife and I get up that way we will check it out. I've always wanted to try some Bison Steaks. Little expensive though.. Have a great weekend
That sounds like a really cool restaurant. I love the bison!! She things she's human, heh? I love goats and wish we could have them here where we live in suburbia.
Hi Linda, We've had bison once when we went to one of Ted Turner's restaurants with G's daughter and hubby in Raleigh several years ago. I thought it was pretty good–but wouldn't drive out of my way just to get it. Love seeing the Buffalo… Funny about that one who thinks it is a 'person'…. You all do so many interesting things… Fun, isn't it?Hugs,Betsy
That looks like our type of restaurant…I have never had buffalo, but would expect it to be just as good as beef.
Linda, wonderful photos and post! The Wooden Nickel sounds like a great place to eat and visit. I have to look this place up on a map.
Interesting!We have a farmer he who breeds buffalor and this fall he will start selling meat at his farm. We look forward to try that. He also have visiting tours in the buffalos area….might be funChristina, sweden
