The food is ok just a little overpriced for what you get. If you don't mind starting price of over $15 then maybe you won't mind these. Most of the Steaks were over $25.

I was in Emporia for a few days and stopped into Bruff's because I had eaten there a couple of years ago and really enjoyed their steak. This place has really gone downhill since then! It took a couple of minutes after I walked in for someone to greet me and take me to a table. She had trouble finding... More

A little out of the way, but worth a visit if you like good burgers. Don't care for the hirise tables but the staff will seat you at booths or standard tables if you ask. Not a top ten of KS but a good mom n pops sports bar n grill. Sure beats applebees and MT Mikes on the other... More

Our experience at Bruff's was merely average. I took seven family members there for dinner and it was just "OK". Burgers were probably better than the salads, but do not put the bar very high as this is just pub grub. They did go out of their way to seat us in an area where we could talk and be... More

Don't go by the menu attached here. Prices have gone up and selection has changed. Steaks were nothing more than average. Typical sports bar - noisy and visual overkill. I will give them a thumbs up for an excellent mahi mahi filet and generous wine pour.

The outside does not reflect the inside. When I stepped in I was pleased at the vast array of games on the big screen TVs. Service and food were fine. If you want a Sports bar this it it.

This is a great place to go to watch a game and eat some good food. The beer choices are plentiful and the food choices are even greater. When I'm in town for business I make plans to visit here for a good brew and excellent food.

Sometimes a bar has food, Bruff's is a restaurant with a bar inside. Nice sports-bar atmosphere, food is normally quite good. Steak bits are a great choice.

Good food but is a sports bar if you do not mind football on every 10+ tv's in area. Good service and full menu.
