Many restaurants come and go in a vacation area. The Bluff has always delivered good food at reasonable prices. I spend my summers in York Beach and can always depend on the Bluff for brunch, lunch, dinner or just cocktails. Very family friendly and great atmosphere. Also one of few restaurants open year round in York.

I must tell you about our quick New Year’s adventure. Being that it is winter and we did not want to be driving around during the evening, for a few reasons – we do look for a place where we can have an all included evening out. The Union Bluff Hotel – was the spot we found, and we had... More

Not a lot of options in York Beach area for nightlife or sports pub atmosphere, so this long time pub could drop the ball and be lazy but they don't. Menu a touch pricey given portions but good amount of TVs, cold beer, great staff, and free popcorn more than do then job on a summer night!!

I arrived very late. The desk at the Anchorage Hotel suggested I go to Union Bluff for dinner. The bartender was very attentive. Helpful in choices and offered many upsells. He told me I would enjoy the fresh oysters and he was right. He asked questions to suggest my cocktails. He checked back before the kitchen closed to be sure... More

Had a fantastic haddock sandwich. My sister ordered hers with a side salad. We both thought we didn't hear the server correctly when she discussed the salad dressings as one had crabmeat and herbs. It was very good and we suggested they use that on the haddock sandwich. I usually have a balsamic dressing but this was very enjoyable.

Were planning to go to a local Italian restaurant for dinner but since it was raining buckets we decided to eat at the pub since we were staying at the hotel. A little hesitant since the evening before we ordered take-out from the pub and it was horrible. What a surprise because dining in was actually exceptional. The waitress, who... More

I arrived later in the evening once the season was over and this was the only place open. The service was forgettable and the food equally so. If I have to pay $8 for a bowl of seafood chowder the least it can be is warm.

We went to this restaurant for dinner on my birthday. I enjoyed both dishes that we ordered (lobster ravioli and grilled haddock). The place we were seated got a little loud/cramped as more people came in, but the staff was friendly and helpful.

We have eaten here many times and the food and service are always excellent. Located next to the beach at Short Sands. Just down the street is Goldenrod home of the best saltwater taffy around. York wild kingdom and zoo are a short walk away.
