They have great bbq, with lots of choices, and their salads are generous. We ordered some grilled shrimp and it was cooked to perfection.

We adored the outdoor dining (indoor also available); a big shade tree in the center and the old west decor tickles our fancy. Meals are served on graniteware, with bandanas as your napkin, which you get to keep. Brilliant. The steaks we had were quite fair, as was the price.

It's a steakhouse. I wasn't thinking of that when I went here, or maybe I thought there would it would have more alternatives for vegetarians. (Bluff offers only a small number of restaurant choices). So very steaks and baked beans, meat-oriented. The atmosphere is interesting. You can eat indoors or outside in closed-off courtyard. In hot weather, in the evening,... More

Nothing fancy just good food and service. Limited menu but you should have no problem finding something. Portions were average and cooked as ordered.

After leaving the Duke's restaurant because of nothing but steak offerings, we found the same at Cottonwood Steakhouse. Yes I know they are a steakhouse, but absolutely nothing else to choose from ? They had no appetizers of any kind, they had no sandwiches, and nothing but steak on their menu. If you want a huge chuck of beef to... More

This breaks my heart to have to give a somewhat negative review as we had visited here several years ago and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The ambience still remains but the quality of the meal has suffered. Perhaps I should have stayed with steak and not ordered Bbq brisket as I did or Bbq chicken as my wife did. Both... More

Having been through Bluff, Utah a few times, I never even heard of the Cottonwood Steakhouse. Boy have we been missing out! Real, down-home cooking (by a guy who obviously likes his own cooking:) Outdoor grill draws the whole valley. Owner makes his presence known in a very complementary way. Our waiter was "fun", didn't take things too seriously, making... More

Had two great meals here. Very friendly wait staff. Good steaks and so many sides we had to eliminate a few. Big appetites will love this place.

Probably the most annoying service I had ever encountered. Became like a comedy sketch, with someone coming up and interrupting us every 2 or 3 minutes asking us how everything was. I wish I'd had the guts to tell them to leave us alone. The brisket was overdone and the sauce for the pulled pork too sweet. Only good things... More

The food is very tasty and cooked outside on the grill. The portions are massive and I'd be wary if your not a huge eater. Might be better to split a meal unless you have a massive appetite. The service was a highlight. Everyone we spoke to bent over backward to make sure our meal was satisfactory. The outside dinning... More
