Cliff's Elbow room is a satisfactory place. The service was fine. The food was ok. The environment was adequate. We had the special for the day BBQ ribs--not special. I had the clam chowder -pretty standard. Overall, the experience was average.

Great meal...nothing fancy, Just a great steak, salad, and drinks. We have the recipe for the marinade and were so happy to bring our son to the place where it all started. Cliff's didn't disappoint. You won't get a lot of atmosphere and it isn't...More
