Original owners Gene and Howard Brundage bought an old trading post along Highway 191 in Bluff, Utah and began to remake the property into a restaurant. The restaurant takes its name from a large cottonwood tree—actually five intertwined cottonwood trees—just outside the building. The Brundages decided to enclose the area surrounding the tree into a large outdoor patio so patrons could enjoy the cool summer nights in Bluff. The interior of the restaurant was styled in a fashion to evoke the interior of a pioneer cabin.
Over the 20 years, the Cottonwood Steakhouse has served visitors from literally all over the world. Thank you for visiting Bluff and dining at the Cottonwood Steakhouse!
