Slow service, food was lukewarm when it was served

Preparation of our order took awhile (others coming in after us were served before us) and once the food arrived it was only lukewarm. Cheese was on my hot sandwich, but wasn't melted. The fries were a little more warm than room temperature. The waitress was busy entertaining her friends so... read more

Great atmosphere, outgoing and great place to come and eat with friends. There are too many things too pick from the menu to just be specific. But I usually get the kc strip basket with fries... ohh, if you don't want to go on a busy day then go either Tuesdays because Friday's and Saturdays seem too be they're busys... More

Only good thing are the wings.. but they're over priced. The service can be slow and snobby and the drinks are over priced and when your beer is flat because they take so long to bring it to you, it's almost pointless to ask for a replacement.

I knew the original Bruff's building on 6th Street before the fire which was more like a bar. This is a grill and bar now, with emphasis on grill. The wait staff can be slow, but their food is good. They have sport decorations and TVs throughout the restaurant. It's busy during game time. They have a pool table as... More

Lots of televisions including big screen TVs. All the food is above average. Their strip steak can be iffy but their prime rib (when available) is the best value.

I liked the fact that it is close to all the hotels I'll be staying at when I have drill! It's a nice sportsbar,so it's a little loud. I've had 2 steaks there... The first time, I was thoroughly impressed. The second time, it was if it was missing something.. Not bad, just didn't taste like it did when I... More

Though billboarded as a steak restaurant, it was actually a sports bar that served some badly overpriced steaks. Having large-screen images of a baseball game and horrible background music were discomforting. The catfish I ordered tasted like stale cardboard. The only positive aspect of my visit was the good service.

Just off the interstate with a stoplight to make an easy on and off, the restaurant sets behind the Guest House Inn. The staff is friendly dressed in referee jerseys. They have a big menu of typical truck stop crossed with sports bar fare. Check for the daily specials, on a resent Sunday lots of people had the fried chicken,... More
