Always good food!

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... read more

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

I work right near Cliff's - walking distance and I've never been, I have been to other Cliff's locations with my family. Same great food, service was awesome! Thanks for a nice lunch!!! Must try their spinach dip - it was awesome.

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
