This place was really busy at lunch time when we went on a Tuesday. We didn't have any food but it looked good and they had big portions. As for the beer:

Lager: almost seemed like a wheat, it was cloudier than a typical lager

Hef: Alright, it was what a Hef is.

Oatmeal stout: Had a good nose, but doesn't deliver on the taste.

Strong ale: Starts off like a strong ale, but finishes like a weak IPA.

Red: Seemed like a weak IPA.

Then they had bottled beers that we have seen back at home in the midwest.

Orange Blossom: They were out.
Pumpkin: This was ok, I'm not a fan of pumpkin flavored things but this wasn't overpowering on the pumpkin.
Blueberry Oatmeal: This was good, I had it just a few weeks before at home. They seemed to be pushing this beer quite a bit, they had stands of 6 packs stacked up everywhere like they just finished it and wanted to sell as much as they could to make room.

Good, solid brewpub.

They claim to be one of the oldest brewpubs in the Bay Area, and who am I to disagree with such a claim?

The noise level was very high due to piped-in music, something that I didn't care for but which might be enticing to others. I asked to be seated outside in the hopes of getting a quieter spot and it worked - I still heard the music but it wasn't irritating.

The brew selections were pretty standard for a brewpub. I had the summer wheat (without the standard lemon wedge, thank you). Mild, inoffensive, very good.

Food was decent with the usual sandwiches, salads, soups and burgers.

The neighborhood was a bit confusing with one-way streets, construction, etc. Not scary but I kept alert. Lots of free parking behind the restaurant and a little in front.

Service was helpful and friendly.

Buffalo Bill’s dates from 1983 making it one of the oldest brewpubs in California. It has a decent size bar and tall table area in addition to the larger table dining area. There is also a patio area out front along the sidewalk that has a fair number of umbrella tables. There were 7 house brews on tap when I visited and I enjoyed both the Johnny Midnight Oatmeal Stout and the Tazmanian Devil (Strong Ale). The menu includes a good selection of starters and salads as well as several unusual sandwich and pizza offerings. There is parking on the street and in a nearby public lot or the Hayward BART station is just a few blocks down B street.
