Amazing Surprise!!! - Edit

With a name like Steer we would’ve driven right on by, If we hadn’t seen it on Happy Cow! There are so many vegan options! We had a tofu sandwich from the brunch menu and a beyond burger. Atmosphere is fun with beers on tap and fireplaces going. There is a fully vegan pizza done in the wood fired oven!

Pros: well labelled menu. vegan items are easy to spot, knowledgeable staff, many options available for fully vegan meals

Unexpected - Edit

We stopped into the steer after hearing about the vegan options on the menu. Buffalo is severely lacking in the vegan and vegetarian department so this came as a welcome surprise. I ordered the marathon bowl which consisted of kale, quinoa, tofu, and seeds. It was very light, and the portion was so big i took half home. We also ordered the chickpea tots which had a curry or Moroccan spice and were to die for. My boyfriend had the Beyond Meat burger that he said was great. We will defiantly be back.

Pros: Multiple Vegan options, large portions

Not very impressed - Edit

Although the Steer has vegan options on the menu, the dishes aren't very tasty or thoughtful. Lentil meatloaf was good but other dishes were not.

Good food and beer! - Edit

One of the better places to eat vegan in Buffalo if you're also looking to have a beer. Their regular menu always has vegan options in each category (salads, sides, pizzas, sandwiches, burgers, and larger dinners), and their specials menu generally has at least one vegan choice.

If you go when they're offering the "vegan crab cakes" on special, make sure to get some, they're excellent! Very rich and flavorful. My girlfriend swears by their vegan meatball bomber, which is also a special they offer sometimes.

When I went this afternoon, it seemed that their main menu had changed quite a bit. I had the "Beyond Burger," which they did a really nice job with. The fries were great, and the staff friendly.

The chickpea "egg-salad" was tempting too, so I'll be back again soon.

-Withholding the 5th star because you do get an average meal here on occasion. Skip the vegan mac unless you're a big fan of gluten free pasta.

Pros: Patio, Lots of vegan options, Beer

Cons: The occasional average meal.

Pretty Good - Edit

The garbanzo tots are amazing and their Mac and cheese is pretty good. I had a really good Thai inspired special once but I haven't seen it since.

Expensive but okay - Edit

I only found this place alright. I may go again and try a different entree. That might have been the problem. I had zucchini noodles and quinoa meatballs. It was pretty bland. I did enjoy the vegan cheesecake. The worse thing about this place is the noise level was way over the top. I had a pounding headache when we left because of how loud it was in the dining area.
They do have a nice selection of vegan options which was very good to have choices.

Pros: Lots of choices, Nice location

Cons: Noisy, expensive

GREAT vegan menu! - Edit

We were two tourists for PA not expecting a whole lot from Buffalo, NY on our way back from Niagara. However, we saw this place and their labeled veg menu and decided to give it a try! We had the burger, crab cakes, macaroni and cheese, and the polenta fries. All good sized portions and fairly priced as well. I'm very glad that we made the stop here and would definitely come again if in the area! Staff was knowledgable and very helpful. I would honestly give five stars if HappyCow allowed that!! My boyfriend is a meat eater but only ate off the veg menu and loved it - definitely recommend for all.

Pros: Separate vegetarian menu, No faux meat - very fresh!, Good portion sizes

Cons: Serves meat, Strange atmosphere - only two people there for lun
