Don't go by the menu attached here. Prices have gone up and selection has changed. Steaks were nothing more than average. Typical sports bar - noisy and visual overkill. I will give them a thumbs up for an excellent mahi mahi filet and generous wine pour.

The outside does not reflect the inside. When I stepped in I was pleased at the vast array of games on the big screen TVs. Service and food were fine. If you want a Sports bar this it it.

This is a great place to go to watch a game and eat some good food. The beer choices are plentiful and the food choices are even greater. When I'm in town for business I make plans to visit here for a good brew and excellent food.

Sometimes a bar has food, Bruff's is a restaurant with a bar inside. Nice sports-bar atmosphere, food is normally quite good. Steak bits are a great choice.

Good food but is a sports bar if you do not mind football on every 10+ tv's in area. Good service and full menu.

Ate here for dinner with a family of 4. Early in the evening and the restaurant was mostly empty, but they put us in booth right next to a 4 table party of college kids. Very noisy when there were so many other areas available. Server was surly and never smiled, no small talk, nothing. It was obvious we were... More

On our way from Minneapolis to Wichita we stopped around 8:15pm on a Sunday. Great that they were still open! Place was about 15% full. We were seated quickly. Their menu is nicely different from most sports bars -lots of varied appetizers, sandwiches, burgers and steaks. We opted for four appetizers to share among the three of us. Our server... More

We have enjoyed the food options at Bruff's and found it a good place to enjoy lunch, dinner, or anytime in between. The decorations are pretty cool and it is a great place to socialize. The staff are efficient and fun to be around. Enjoy.

My family all had different meals and they all were great. Wife had a burger basket which they offer a lot of choices. I had... More

We have gone here several times with friends and family. If they are not busy, you get good food. If you get a good server then it is a great experience. We have had so so food before and crappy service before too but not as a norm. It is a social hub for emporia and that must be the... More
