Friendly service, food very good and good portion sizes. We didn't leave hungry. Right next door to Dinner Bell Motel.

The prices listed online are much less than they are at the restaurant and the menu at the restaurant is much less diverse. All in all the food is adequate but not exceptional.

This was a great restaurant but decor and a couple things let it down. Steaks and burgers were lovely and cooked properly to our tastes. Desserts were not so good though...frozen and brought in. No on site Desserts. Also plastic plates and glasses! Why oh why? These restaurants will insist on taking your plates away as u finish your last... More

We tried to go to another place in Dunnellon, but it was packed. As a second choice, the four of us went to Gruffs. I had ribs, very good, my wife had fish and chips, very good, our friends had shrimp, very good, and a hamburger, which was too underdone. Our server was very polite and efficient, food cam,e out...

The food was just ok, nothing real special. The atmosphere was a little too dark for me, I want to see what I am eating. The staff was a little slow, which is ok if the place is busy, but I want service when it is slow, not waiting for a refill for my drink. It is more of a... More

This establishment has a dining room and a bar area. So it was very surprising that there were two screaming children in the bar for the happy hour!! The food is very good, service excellent. We ordered the potato chips with blue cheese, great. Husband ordered the blackened chicken salad, good and fresh. I had the Gruff's burger, hand pressed,... More

The atmosphere is so lacking, out-of-date, & plain that it seemed uncomfortable to eat there. We went on a Thursday night when they had a hamburger special of buy one & get one 50% off. The hamburgers were great, but otherwise would be pricey starting at $9.00. We choose the $12.00 ones. We enjoyed the burgers & fries which were... More

We went here on the suggestion of the hotel manager where we stayed. The food was generic and awful. I mean awful....ordered mushroom soup and I swear it came out of a can and was not even heated throughout. Had a steak salad and that was ok but the kids had chicken boneless bites and they might have been from... More
