Really enjoyed our dinner. Atmosphere was lovely, service friendly, and the food was excellent. I had the trout and it was a very large fish, tender, and flavorful. Side dishes (salad and rice) were also very good. Wish they were open longer than just the...More

Cliffview has one of the better steaks I have had recently. The restaurant is located at the base of Brazos Cliffs in an old log structure. Lots of charm. The food was excellent including the Razelberry pie with a huge helping of ice cream. I...More
