I have been dozens and dozens of times over the years and always love it. Have been with family, friends, my other half, and even alone. There are many wonderful things to choose from that I could not limit it to one. I love the chowder, steak, duck, etc. The clam strips, baked, and of course the mushrooms. The steaks... More

Went here on a Tuesday night and we were seated right away. Our dining experience was very good - no complaints. We ordered the broiled seafood platter (scallops were excellent), surf and turf and a hamburger with fries - all were delish! They have an excellent dessert menu, too!

We were originally going to Grana across the street but they had an even going on and were not seating so we took a chance and went across the street to this place and from the looks of it; it doesn't look all that great. Very tight seating; hence the name but I have to say that the Filet Mignon... More

Cliff'S has been a Jamesport favorite for many decades. Most of its customers are locals the atmosphere is plane and simple. The food is well prepared and the dishes are basic with good portions. The wait staff is friendly and prompt. There is not much of a wine list and they do have specials from time to time. It's a... More

We ordered one steak and shared it between the two of us. The marinade is actually similar to charcoal which wasnt really my thing but i can appreciate that other people might like it. The outside was charcoal and the inside medium so it must be a really hot flame. The restaurant is cosy but bring a cardigan as the... More

I hadn't been to Cliff's Elbow Room in years and we just happened to stop in for lunch. I laughed as soon as I got the lunch menu because it is exactly like the one at Cliff's Rendezvous in Riverhead and I had just been there last week. A steak was too much for lunch (although they do have a... More

I have had Cliff's secret steak marinade for years at backyard BBQ. Never had the real thing until now. I got the Porterhouse.. it wasn't the best cut of steak I have ever had by a long shot, but the marinade was better than the knock off I have been eating. They cook the steak at some crazy hot temp.... More

If you want a great steak, and not so much great ambiance, Cliff's Elbow Room is the place to go. The marinated steaks are famous here on Long island and are worth every cent. The overall menu is well accepted by all including my grand kids. Treat your family to a nice evening out with a good steak.

Their secret marinate and cooking method for their steaks is the best anywhere on the east coast. Whenever we are on Long Island this is a must stop

It's been more than a few years since we were there but the steaks are as good as ever and what about those ribs? They are delicious and plentiful. Skinny fries, a beer and ribs. I am officially in hog heaven.
