17 of us ( kids included) stopped here while out on the snowmobiles over the weekend. We ordered several appetizers; onion rings, spinach dip, and chili cheese fries while the kids got pizza sticks and grilled cheese. All of the food was very good with a good sized portion. Beer and drink prices were very reasonable and even with a... More

We stopped here after a rainy day of riding the local ATV trails. I was pleasantly surprised with the food. A step above the normal bar food. We has two different burgers and a burrito. We also had the bar cheese appetizer, which made the stop worth while on its own. They had a nice deck area if the weather... More

Decent food if you don't get too picky. It's a bar in the middle of nowhere, don't expect 5 Star gourmet food or service! ATVer's and snowmobilers will love it!

1. Bad service? Check. 2. Bad food? Check. 3. Bad management? Obviously (see #1 and #2). There you have it; the trifecta of terribleness that was my experience at The Bluffs. I visited with family and friends, on a night that was busy, but never so busy that there wasn't available seating at all times, both inside and out. Our... More

Decent food on Black Lake, nice outdoor view Good beer choices. No delay in service. Strawberry ice cream pie a disappointment; no fresh strawberries, but a hard frozen cake.

Best view of Black Lake. The Bluffs also offers a back yard cookout feel. And while you may wait a lengthy time for food sometimes, it's well worth the wait. They have created the best wings I've ever had! Their smoked meats are to die for! And they don't skimp on portions or serve you a crappie side salad. Their... More

The place is way off the beaten path if coming from land, and looks like just your average bar. Unfortunately my food was also at that standard; my burger not even close to filling the bun and cold by the time it hit my table. The French fries were soggy and lacked any flavor to set them apart. They do... More

Twice we've waited over two hours for our food. We should have learned our lesson after the first time, but The Bluffs used to be a family favorite and we wanted to give them a second chance. The new owner does not staff his place adequately and the kitchen cannot keep up with the demand. Save your family some aggravation... More
