Fun place to be if you want a little action on a cottage weekend. The owner Carlos B is the man. Recommended

Brought back a lot of memories from my youth when we dropped in for some quick eats and a pint. I told my kids that my buddies and I would come here in the early 80's and on the weekends the bands rocked this place. Full of all kinds of Teenagers, Bikers, Barfly's, etc..... It certainly looked the same on... More

This local institution is incredibly unassuming from the street. It's not particularly easy on the eyes, and is pretty dark and grungy inside. Don't expect anything high brow here! Having said that, it's clean, and huge with both indoor and outdoor seating. Good selection of beer on tap, and the food is fantastic. We've been here several times, and haven't... More

Dropped in because I heard this place was so good for a meal. It is actually just a cavernous beer joint with a few tables and very poor decor and atmosphere. I was the only one in the place at 4 pm.

This is one of the best places to enjoy a beer and some pub food on a sunny day in cottage country. We were with children and had a very relaxing time on the patio with them exploring the rock wall that dominates one side of the patio. The service was friendly and efficient. One night, we will go back... More

Burgers are amazing and all the food is well priced as is the BEER!. Staff are friendly, courteous and fast. Had... More

The Rockcliffe has the best hamburgers anywhere and your choice is from the standard hamburger to outrageous topping.... like maple syrup or peanut butter. Consistantly delicious... great fries too!

It's a down-home pub that looks like a western movie. Nothing fancy.
