Doesn't look like much but it was delicious! Good ol home cooking that tastes great. Good service with friendly staff. It takes a little longer to get your food and stuff but when it's fresh and made from scratch I'll take it!

The staff are always friendly, the food is amazing, and the bartender has made any drink I ask for - even if it's new to them. We recommend Undercliff to anyone who enjoys good food and atmosphere. Even our 5 year old loves it, and she's picky.

This place is awesome. It is built into the side of a cliff. The food and services are great. Great little get away.

Located about 14 miles NE of Rangeline Rd in the "country". What a hoot. This place, from the Bonny & Clyde-days, is built literally under-a-cliff. The restaurant ceiling is actually part of the stone cliff. Fascinating. It's insanely popular with a wildly divergent clientele. You're gonna dine in an old historic country "joint" with farmers, students, bikers, Cowboys, the "beautiful"-people,... More

Big changes since we were there last month, and not for the better...no liquor license although the massive Budweiser signs are still up on the patio. No indication from our server that the license would be reinstated. Two of the sides we ordered aren't made anymore and the food took 30 minutes to arrive in a half empty restaurant. Staff... More

We went there on the recommendation of others. They had recently lost their liquor license. Good was horrible. Packed restaurant with 2 servers. Great atmosphere but that is it.

If you are looking for something a tad different in atmosphere - this is the place. Diner food is fair, however it is a great place to go if you are out on an afternoon ride and want a quick place to stop and enjoy a refreshing adult beverage.

The owner was sitting at the bar when we went to pay and when I presented a groupon to apply to the bill, he became very irate and began cussing me out for using a groupon. He was drunk and loud and I was completely mortified. The groupon was a current promotion so he had no argument. We will never... More

Nice front porch tables, ice old beer and a full menu. Love the relaxed atmosphere and the remote location. Be aware that if the temp is below 60 you can't sit and be served on the porch. Over all 4 stars!!

It was a nice location near a waterfront campground. Although it was a holiday weekend, it was not crowded. That should have been an indication as to how the food is. The burgers were horrible over-processed tasteless meat patty things. We were very disappointed.
