Cliffs is an older restaurant that serves delicious steaks and seafood. The bakes clams are huge and are the only ones like it! They appear to be puréed in a blender than placed back into a clam and they have a breading over top which is delicious. He staff is always friendly and the drink prices are good!

Marinated steaks cooked to perfection! Excellent service! Large portions so there are always leftovers for lunch the next day!

Very loud. This is a pub, so I guess that is normal. Called ahead for reservations and still had to wait over 1 hour. The steak was good, but anyone else who had something other than steak was not happy. Also had to send food back because it was cold. Cold Sweet Potato Fries are not good.

We had 3 orders of burgers and a fish and chips. Burgers were cooked perfectly and the fish & chips was good....all served with lots of hot fries (one ordered sweet potato fries...also fresh and excellent). Had a gigantic slice of excellent chocolate cake for dessert....we shared this. This place also gets the reliability stamp from our local friends.

My girlfriend and I visited in August 2014 and arrived early for the dinner special. WE found a nice cozy table in the back of the main dining room and the waitress came over right away to take our drink order. Cliff's has been at this location for a long time and seems to be a favorite with the locals...in... More

Steaks and burgers are amazing here. My date had the porterhouse marinated with mushrooms and onions and it was delicious. I had a burger with sweet potato fries. It's a cute little place and I'd return.

Were visiting Riverhead in May 2014 and were not even served in this restaurant at 8.30 PM. The hostess was sluggish and not eager to serve us a table as "they would have to set it up again and its late" and suggested us a smaller table/ barstand. We walked out and headed to Jerry & The Mermaid.

We ate there while in town on business. It is a throwback to family-owned restaurants of the 60's and 70's. Quaint décor. Nice wait person. The steak with their special seasoning was great. My wife had pasta that was just so-so. Salads were good, not great. All in all it was a little more expensive than I would have thought,... More

The restaurant is known best for its steaks and burgers but it also has good seafood. My wife and I ate there recently and shared baked clams and steamed clams appetizers. She had lobster bisque and I had their award winning clam chowders. The baked clams were a different recipe than we were accustomed to having. It seemed to be... More

There aren't too many places like Cliff's left out there. Kind of a throwback to the 70s both in the vibe and the decor ... you will feel at home and local here. There is a dining area and also a bar. Like the other Cliff's restaurants on the East End (Elbow Room, Elbow II, etc.) the food is fresh... More
