“Great Atmosphere; So-so Steak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

In Bluff, this is THE place for dinner (it is actually one of only two restaurants that I could find).

There is indoor seating but I recommend that, weather permitting, you enjoy the outdoor area under the huge cottonwood tree. Relax and sip a beverage of your choice while waiting for your meal. The service is very good with attentive staff.

My steak was OK but not anything special but don't let that stop you from enjoying a very interesting and enjoyable location.

“Home cooking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

The food was excellent, the service was great and the owners have collected a number of interesting things on display. We sat outside and listened to Country and Western music while enjoying a great meal, with wine (remember you are in Utah).

“OK food, but way overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

Let's get to the chase- the town of Bluff is located in a remote corner of Utah and this is really the only 'real' restaurant in town. As such, they charge really outrageous prices for average food. Our family of five ate here for $120! The food was OK, but I'd expect real white shirts and linen table clothes for this price anywhere else. But here you get t-shirts, so-so service, and average food. One of these days someone else will open a reasonably priced restaurant in Bluff and put the others out of business.

“Wonderful Dinner at The Cottonwood Steakhouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

This was probably the very best meal I had during my entire visit to the Monument Valley area. The owners and staff are tremendously friendly and gracious. The food is very good quality and well presented and prepared. You cannot miss sampling the homemade pies; they are incredible. Lovely country western atmosphere sitting outside in the garden courtyard!! I truly enjoyed this meal in lovely Bluff, Utah!!!
