I travel extensively tri-state area Midwest. Best aged sirloin here in weeks! Highly suggest anyone staying in Watertown, SD eat here. Food and service both above expectation here tonight.

First, we drove 50 miles with anticipation. True, they warned us when we arrived it would be a 45 minute wait for food. Meanwhile...no service of any kind for 45 minutes: no water, no drink, nada.

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
