The Bluffs Restaurant at Doughton Park is officially reopening this Saturday, August 22.

The beloved former coffee shop at milepost 241 closed in 2010, but is welcoming back guests thanks to the support of donors from across the country.

There has been an adjustment in previously announced operating hours.

On opening day, the restaurant will welcome guests for special hours from 8 am to 8 pm as originally announced, and then shift to a schedule of 11 am to 7 pm, Wednesday through Sunday, rather than daily.

The Bluffs operators determined this is the best way stay open for the inaugural season and ensure the safety of guests and staff as they continue to be diligent in their COVID-19 precautions.
