The food and service was great. The oysters were the best!! Dining at the Union Bluff Grille is always a great experience.
I’ve visited the Pub at the Union Bluff on several occasions and have always enjoyed it, but on this visit we decided to check out the Union Grille dining room for an early dinner! It did not disappoint, the menu is very different from the Pub which was awesome! And everything we ordered from cocktails to dessert was delicious! I totally enjoyed the Haddock with Lobster sauce, potatoes and vegetable. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his Fried Chicken which was served with a side of Blue Mac & Cheese as well as Brussel Sprouts! The shared Caesar Salad was really fresh and The crème brûlée topped with fresh fruit for dessert was positively delightful. Our only complaint was our waitress was clearly new and absent for most of our visit! Even the very basics were absent! We will however return because the food and the view were fabulous. A special shout out to Luke in Valet who happily greeted us upon our arrival. And in spite of being very busy he was both pleasant and efficient!
Food was ok. Nothing special. Server was nice but not very attentive.
This a great spot in a totally retro beach town. The view of Short Sands is fantastic and the food is excellent. The seating area to have a view is small, so make sure to request a table with a view. Our party had clam chowder, littlenecks, peekytoe crab cakes, Maine mussels and fried chicken. Oh, and the warm banana bread dessert. Everything was outstanding and reasonably priced. Go there!
Aside from the table being a little messy when we sat down, we had a great experience and will definitely go back. Great service from Tracey and all her recommendations were spot on. Very good duck confit salad to start, great shrimp and lobster cocktail as a mid-course, the salmon and scallops for dinner were delightful and a terrific bottle of wine at a reasonable price.
Great food, very attentive server, nice view of the beach
Great place for seaside dining with friends. We could enjoy each other’s company without excessive noise and distractions.
We ordered one each of the two specials and they were both outstanding. The steak was cooked perfectly, and the fish was seasoned to perfection. I have wanted to try this restaurant for years and was not disappointed.
The Union Grill is a warm friendly place with very a capable staff. The food and drinks were above our expectations
We have eaten at this restaurant many times over the years and have always been impressed. While the food was very good this time, we were disappointed that the menu was much more limited than in the past. We assume that is because of COVID, and that soon things will be back to normal. We did have a wonderful time and the service was AWESOME!! We will be back.
Everything was great. I loved that I was able to request a table facing the ocean as it’s located right across the street from the beach. It’s a great location. I would absolutely go back!
Very courteous service, delicious meal, very pleasant experience overall
We love the Union Bluff Hotel for the view, food and location. The pub has great food and a great staff. The Grill is more expensive but so worth it. It is never a disappointment.
The food was good however I prefer to have more entrees and appetizers on the menu than what was on the menu for Mothers Day.
Not a good experience! Girl who seated us at the worst table in the back was curt when we asked about all the EMPTY tables near the windows- we are full up and we have reservations!
Well, we had a reservation. She obviously lied to our face, as there were a lot of empty tables the whole time we dined. We are regulars, love Chef Darren, Michelle, Katlin. Our waitresses were great! We know both of them well from the fantastic wine dinners! Even they commented that we should have had the window table! Shame on me as we dined there two nights in a row and the night after ordered $160+ in take out.
Not a very nice experience for my wife's Mother's Day dinner!!!
Left feedback on website, only to get an automated e-mail response that ended with Are You Human! Wow- slap in the face.
Never the less, we do love this place and will be back often, hopefully be better treated in the future?
Give them a chance, hopefully you have a much better experience?!?!?
Fantastic dinner from start to finish! Fork tender Filet Mignon, Scallop special with a sauce from heaven and Roasted Brussels Sprouts we’re all cooked to perfection ! Our server was excellent, prompt and attentive and the atmosphere was calm and quiet with a wonderful table with an ocean view. Just one of the many reason we come back here time and time again !
Great food. The specials are
As always our food was phenomenal! Highly recommend!
Wait staff were friendly and attentive. We had a great seat by the window.
Excellent food and service. We will return. Drinks were great too.
This was our second time visiting the Grille this week! We had the same server and she is amazing! The food was delicious! Beautiful view of short sands...perfect!
The food was great and the location was amazing. Scallops were on special and they were great!
Wonderful meal at this lovely hotel. Try the haddock it’s really good. Filets were huge and cooked perfectly. The oysters were just okay but the Brussels sprouts were very good. Excellent wait staff.
Good was amazing and our waitress was great! We’ll be back again!
This was the best meal I have had in a years time it was delicious!! Definitely coming back as soon as possible.
This was our first visit to The Union Grill, it won't be our last. Our waitress/bartender Pam was fantastic. Made us feel very welcome. Perfect martinis! Never a rush to move on to the next course. We had the muscles to start, wow! Plump and very tasty. We both had the halibut special. This was also very good; however, a little less salt on the fish would have been a good thing. The blueberry cobbler with vanilla ice cream was a perfect way to end our meal. Thanks to all at The Union Grill!
great food, great service, great location! highly recommend
Food and drinks were fantastic very good quality and delicious. Service was excellent and the ambiance was perfect for a date night even in the midst of a pandemic.
We went to The Union Grill while visiting York from Boston. The service was amazing - just attentive enough, and so friendly. We sat by the fireplace, and it was incredibly cozy on a cold night in January. We highly recommend the burger, the mussels, and the clam chowder. YUM. The location can't be beat. And, in a time of COVID-19, this was our first indoor dining experience in 9 months, and the staff made us feel safe - they took all the proper precautions. I highly recommend, and we cannot wait to go back!
Nice casual place with good quality food and service.
The staff is great and the food is terrific!
Great food and service was awesome! I would recommend to everyone!
The food and service were exceptional! I have now eaten here on and off season and I would highly recommend it to anyone!
This is so cozy in the winter. Great atmosphere. Love the fireplace , dark wood tables, lighting. The service was very good but a tiny bit slow considering there weren't many people here. The food was delicious and presented very well. Got a really expensive rib eye with mashed and carrots - it was slightly undercooked but the gorgonzola sauce on the steak was too die for....so good. Had so much that it was also lunch the next day so definitely worth it. Good selection of oysters that were yummy and the shrimp was good as well. We did share a special chocolate dessert that was also great. The wine selection here is just ok not a great selection by the glass. The people here are locals and they treat you really well when you dine here.
Never been disappointed, food has been excellent and tastefully presented.
The food is fantastic and the wait staff is kind, friendly and attentive. Can’t wait to go back.
Great suggestions by the waitress. Good food and drinks in a nice comfortable atmosphere.
Outstanding food and service. Above a beyond! Nice cozy atmosphere with crackling fireplace and low lighting !
We’ve dined here many times, and the service was always excellent. This time though it was not until we mentioned to the hostess that we have been waiting for nearly a half hour without so much as a glass of water. Obviously we had become lost in the mix as other tables seated after us were being served. This can happen, and was quickly remedied by a server who saved the day.
