When you’re in the mood for good food minus the pretense, Bluffs Grill and Taps is exactly where you want to be. The menu is always fresh and flavorful and the 36 draft beers will leave you with more than enough room to experiment. So if you’re looking for the best accompaniment for your black-Angus burger, all you have to do is ask for a few samples.

All of the fried items on the menu are hand-dipped in batter and the salads are made with produce at the height of its game. Plus, Bluffs Grill and Taps is the place to watch or play a game. Whether you’re dying to catch the big show-down between the two best teams or you just want to challenge your friend to a game of pool, this place is made for getting a little rowdy.

There are two bars at Bluffs, both of which offer rotating regional craft beers, locally distilled spirits, and in-house drink specialties. The staff welcomes large groups of family and friends who just want to blow off a little steam after a long drive or a stressful week. There’s even a large patio where you can sit back with an ice-cold beverage and enjoy the sunshine or evening breeze.

The vibe here is casual which can help put guests instantly at ease. The servers are friendly and professional, but you won’t find white gloves or black ties here. Head over to the game area for a round of darts, cornhole, or GoldenTee (in addition to billiards). Or come on a specialty night to try your voice at karaoke or Singo (a musical take on Bingo). They also have a DJ spinning tunes on Friday and Saturday nights or trivia nights on Wednesdays.

When you’re at Bluffs Grill and Taps, here are our top recommendations:

Hot Chocolate Bluff-a-lo Wings
If you’ve never had spicy chocolate wings before, Bluffs has a reputation for introducing its patrons to their next favorite flavor combination. The sweetness and spice of barbeque have long been beloved by the citizens of the state. This menu item takes that sweetness to new heights by turning your favorite dessert into something a little more succulent.

Heart Stopper
This truly decadent creation is a burger plus bacon sandwiched between not one but two grilled cheese sandwiches. The richness of the flavors blends together to make for the perfect bite. But if you want to avoid the other consequences of a dish this intense, maybe order one for the table and divide it up.

Fried Pickles
This appetizer isn’t always on your standard menu, which is exactly why you should order it. A Southern specialty, fried pickles are tangy, crispy, and just plain delicious (especially when dipped in creamy ranch). These beauties are sandwich-sliced and a great way to start the meal.

Sometimes a sports bar can be just what everyone needs to really relax and recharge. The very atmosphere of Bluffs is designed to bring out a little competitive spirit in everyone, which can be exactly what everyone needs to focus on the fun.
