This is our annual trip (from Saratoga ny) to York and the Union bluff. We have dined coast to coast and we have fine restaurants in Saratoga. Nothing beats the Grill at the Union bluff. We were fortunate to have Karen as our server. She...More

Both the pub and the grill are located in the Union Bluff Hotel overlooking the ocean. The pub, to the right as you enter, does not take reservations and often has a long wait in summer season. The Grille, to the left as you enter,...More

We love the atmosphere and the food here. We go every time we are in York. From the Popcorn with drinks, to the Sirloin Tips or Lobster Roll. Always worth a short wait.

Their onion fries were amazing...a must try. My husband had the burger, I had the fish tacos, and our friend had the salad. All of it was very tasty, and the service was good. Laid back pub atmosphere that was family friendly.
