From the warm welcomes from both the hostess and server to the bright window seats and the perfect martinis, we knew this place was something special.We dined there three evenings on our five day York vacation.Appetizers offered included choices on oysters from specific bays,the shrimp cocktail was superior to ones we order when at home on Florida's Gulf coast and...

Dinner last night at the Union Bluff Hotel Restaurant was a huge disappointment. We have owned property in York since the 1980s and have frequented the Pub many, many times over the years. As we waited for our name to come up for the pub, the bartender persuaded us to have dinner in the restaurant. We were given a nice... More

My husband & I were late getting to our summer home in York Beach and hadn't had dinner, I was not prepared to cook so we headed down town to find an open restaurant at about 9:45, the only one open was the Union Grill and Pub, Thankfully the kitchen was still open and we were able to order from...

This was a pleasant surprise and probably the best experience we had dining in York. We originally went to another place near the General store / beach but left after being ignored for 15 minutes. We walked over to the Union Bluff (in a bad mood) but quickly cheered up. Our server was Jocelyn who was a lifelong resident of... More

Looked up Union Grill online to review their menu ahead of time, and everything sounded great. Was even more pleased with the actual experience. We had been worried about finding parking at busy York Beach, but we're pleasantly surprised to pull up in front of hotel/restaurant and find complementary valet. The valet was incredibly nice and friendly and started off... More

We spent the last weekend in York Beach at the Sands by the Sea. We had dinner and breakfast at the Union Grill and Pub. Food was fantastic for dinner we got the steak tips with mashed potatoes and my husband got scolloped potatoes with green beans. I had the blueberry pie with ice cream for dessert. Our waitress was... More

Always wanted to go in, very disappointed. Rude wait staff, pricey menu, portions looked small. Bloody Mary served in cracked, small, flimsy plastic cup. The Bloody Mary was just a hint of vodka and tomato juice. It was obvious the staff did not want to be there. Will not go back.

We wanted to have a nice dinner on our last night in York so we walked up to the Union Grill and Pub. Having never been there before, we were a bit unsure of what to do. We had 2 children with us, so we were hoping they had something good to offer them. Unfortunately, we didn't get a chance... More

My husband and I live in York year round and The Bluff is the place we go to at least twice a month. The food is good and we love the servers! It is nice to see the influx of tourists spring through fall, but I think our favorite time is winter when the townies come out to eat the... More
