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

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The atmosphere is so lacking, out-of-date, & plain that it seemed uncomfortable to eat there.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

The restaurant has good food, a sports bar & family dining room, the staff is friendly also responsive to your needs. Thursday night is hamburger night you buy one get the 2nd 1/2 price, fries are well cooked & the price of drinks is reasonable, many beers on tap..

We were camping in the area and chose this as our night out based on a local's recommendation. It was wing night and this place was full, always a good sign. We didn't have the wings but the food was excellent. Good atmosphere and the waitress was excellent.
