Gruff’s  Tap & Grille was established in 2008 and was originally located on the

beautiful Rainbow river. After three short years we had outgrown our current

location and had to make a move inland, to a gorgeous free-standing brick

restaurant (formerly the Dinner Bell Restaurant), nestled inland between the

Rainbow and Withlacoochee rivers, directly across the street from A to Z Liquors

and next door to the Dinner Bell Motel.

Gruff’s is a dinner destination, we open our doors at 4 pm daily (with the

exception of Sundays in which we open at noon). We have a beer, wine, liquor

lounge & sports bar, two separate dining rooms, outside seating,  as well as a 

100 seat gorgeous banquet room.

Our Chef’s hand-cut our steaks, make fresh soups & sauces daily. You can also

find one of them each morning at the local market hand picking the best

vegetables available. Our famous barbecue is smoked on premise in one of our

Ole Hickory Pit Smokers. We slow smoke all of our barbecue meats using a

combination of hickory and white oak. We take pride in the quality of our tender,

juicy barbecue , as well as with all of the entrees and items that we sell each

day. It is our daily mission to provide a relaxed, enjoyable dining experience with

only the best quality and freshest ingredients, while giving generous portioned

entrees at great prices. Our atmosphere is very casual and friendly with

exceptional service and hospitality.

At the River Restaurants, LLC ‘s  corporate headquarters is located in Dunnellon, Fl and has an office in Citrus County as

well. At the River Restaurants, LLC  owns and operates Gruff’s Tap & Grille and Gruff’s Elite Banquets & Catering.

Our attention to detail and

imagination, sophistication

and exquisite culinary

delicacies are sure to make

your event a memorable one.
