Prices are extremely reasonable, and the standard fare you'd expect at a decent roadside diner are there -- cheeseburgers, fries, and homemade white bean soup.

Cliffside is a cool place and has some great food. My first time there, I got a sandwich and it was great. I would like to come back and try something else!

My family eats at Cliffside several times a week. The food is always hot and fresh and the menu is diverse enough so that everyone can find something to eat. If you like eating in diners, you will not be disappointed.

An old fashioned diner that really is an old fashioned diner. They have plenty of offerings on the menu to satisfy any taste. Shelly had the roast beef special and enjoyed it. I decided to try to the Cliffside burger. It is like a patty melt with bacon. It was very good, with just the right amount of "diner" grease.... More

We finally found it! The first time that we tried to go our GPS sent us everywhere but to the restaurant. (Call if you need directions) this is definitely a small, casual but friendly place. Everyone was very nice and helpful. My husband had the meatloaf, potato salad and cole slaw. He enjoyed them all and said all tasted very... More

The diner was cramped and smelled like grease. I ordered meatloaf, it was cold and served with cold ketchup on top. The mashed potatoes were instant and so was the gravy. The green beans were swimming in grease. The fried chicken breast my boyfriend ordered came covered in instant white gravy, which was not on the menu description. The fried... More

A lovely small family run diner, and one of the few places to eat in the evening in an otherwise moribund Frankfort. Either there was a game on, or the aliens had landed. Unlike our experience in some more expensive eateries, the chef came out to discuss and improve our order because my wife had ordered gluten and dairy free.... More

Our family stopped prior to going to the ghost tour at buffalo trace. Fast friendly service. Great burger and milkshake. Enjoyed the mushrooms and buffalo bites. Will definitely stop in again.
