We had an excellent meal with good service. I had the barbecue ribs and they were one of the best meals of ribs I have ever had.

Went to Cliffords after hearing reviews from business owners in Watertown. Spent my 50th birthday their and the ribs meet what everyone says. They are awesome. Very nice place and the staff are wonderful.

We have had the best soups and food at Clifford's Steakhouse in Watertown, S.D.! Tonight I had a bowl of Vegetable beef soup. So good on a cold S.D. Night. My husband had Nantucket Tilaipia. It was the best. The service was excellent! Good food and service. Can't be beat! Myla

The steaks are obviously hand cut and selected. Always tender and cooked as requested. Atmosphere is either a family restaurant or sports bar, your choice.

We have eaten at Clifford's in both location. The best food in Watertown! The service is great. Always served with a smile or two. The ribs are fall off type. Great BBQ sauce. Yum. I have 30 years in food service in healthcare and in restaurant service. Clifford's has always been the best in Watertown
