It's a Christmas miracle! As promised, the doors to the Buffalo Head restaurant are finally open.

Kevin and Linda Asaro bought the Forestport restaurant last March with plans to open in June. Those plans had to be pushed back after delays and issues. Friday, the restaurant was back in business with a new name - The Buffalo Head Steakhouse, and a new menu to match...

The Buffalo Head restaurant is famously named for the stuffed bison head immigrant loggers used to identify it, during train stops in the 1920s. Since those days, the restaurant has also operated under the names Morrison’s Inn and Lockwood Inn and has changed owners several times.
