Bluff City has an amazing menu - something for everyone. Friendly staff and nice decor. Alton is lucky to have this restaurant that is not some chain. Support local business.

I stopped in for a salad for lunch. Generous portion for the cobb salad and prepared exactly as expected. Bartender/server was friendly and attentive. I can't out my finger on why but I just don't enjoy this location as much as the previous.

Wide variety of selections. Portions are very generous. Service is good. Large capacity, good for two tops or large groups.
