Best pub food in town

Ocean view, excellent staff, and the best burgers with so many options on them. A delicious clam chowder, plenty of clams, also their "specials" are a good bargain. The pan, hot chocolate chip cookie is outstanding. One of my favorite places.

Came for lunch on a Saturday, was made to wait outside in the Lobby until 1130 while 5-6 waitstaff loitered in the Tavern area. We were eventually let in but not welcomed as expected, service was unremarkable, order taker without personality. Food was OK, I tried sourdough bread with my BLT which I found to be very dry. French fries... More

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.
