We had a dinner and a lunch in the Union Grill and Pub during our recent stay at the Union Bluff Hotel. The food was exceptional for a hotel restaurant, Try the Crab Cakes or the Crab Cake sandwich. Both are exceptional.

I've eaten at the Union Bluff many times over the past decade. I am not sure if there was a change in kitchen staff but over the last year or so the quality of the food has slipped. Unfortunately, it is the only restaurant open year round so they don't have much incentive to improve. I will mention, they do... More

Went there for breakfast and was disappointed in the service. Took 30 minutes for a simple breakfast to come out of the kitchen. Some of it was cold, and no real maple syrup was odd for such a higher class of hotels.

When we asked at our hotel where we could find "really good pub food," we were directed to the Union Bluff Grill & Pub ... and we were not disappointed! The menu had something for everyone, and we were all happy with our decisions. The Brugers were in the $9 to $10 range, and they were very good. The Grilled... More

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
