Great burgers

Have eaten here a few times and never disappointed. If you like cheese burgers, these are great, especially with fried onions! Steak is also good here. Cliff's restaurants are an east end institutions, all have similar decor, old school bar, but they are clean! Good chowders too!

We decided to dine at Cliffs Rendezvous for two reasons. One it was very close to the hotel we were staying at and two I had dine twice before at their other restaurant, Cliffs Elbow room in Jamesport and really enjoyed the food and service there. The service at the Riverhead location was just as friendly and attentive. I ordered... More

Horrid place. We thought the old neon cocktail sign was cool and foolishly thought well, this is local so let's be local. Well, we sat next to a nice quiet old couple who looked like they lived there, and listened as the bartender talked to the other four people who were at the bar. The "locals" who ate there did...

The steak is good, the whole meal is good. ! Great price point for a lunch with steak. I have never had a bad steak or lunch here. If you have lunch here, you will not eat dinner. Good value, good food.

We came to riverhead for a night with family. Cliff's was recommended to us by the hotel and I'm glad we went! The staff was super friendly and the food was very tasty. Especially enjoyed the chowder and the steaks were definitely as good as Cliff's claim. And great cheesecake to finish the night off well:)

The porterhouse steak is really good. The atmosphere of the place is at the bottom of my list. I would go to elbow room in aquebogue or elbow room II in Mattituck for the same thing but slightly better atmosphere. Elbow room II is my favorite of the three. They are all owned by the same family but the chef... More
