“Try this bar/restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2012

Good food, menu and prices. Great for sports fans. Only comment is that it can be a bit loud. We arrived a bit late one night and were served with no problem.

“It's a gamble”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2012

I have been to this restaurant and had wonderful meals in the past. The last year or so has not been the case though. Their steaks are more inedible fat than flavor, potatoes are always cold, and it's no longer worth the price. Hate to say it but I have saved money going to another steak house in emporia and received better food! So bottom line if you like to gamble with your food, this is the place for you bc you never know what you will get ( good or bad).

“Hey! It's a small town sports bar!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2011

We come to my husband's home town a couple of times a year and usually stop at Bruff's. It's signature dish still is chicken wings and Dom Perignon. Bruff's is a great place to go if you like to watch sports on large screen TVs, and the bar has a good selection of beers on tap including regional ones like the Boulevard. Food is fairly priced and the burgers and steaks are very good. Bruff's is clean and dons it's share of sports memorabilia.
While the bartender does a great job of pouring beer from the tap, his skills in caring for wine is seriously lacking. Years ago, I ordered a red wine, and it tasted terrible as though the bottle had been open awhile. A new one was opened and it was bad. Turns out, the bar staff was storing the red wine under hot lights. White wine was fine as those bottles were immediately put in the fridge. Too bad the bartender has not figured out he could store the reds in the same fashion as whites given the turnover. If you are a wine drinker or don't want beer, I would recommend you order white or bring your own red and pay the corkage fee.
