We visited with a group of people during happy hour. The setting is lovely. The happy hour menu was well priced. Speciality drinks were still fairly pricey. The quality of the food was very good.

My husband and I joined two couples for a birthday dinner. Our service was great. Everyone’s food was delicious. This was our second time here, the first was for a date night. We really enjoyed both visits. Not stuffy at all, very nice!

From the moment you approach the Cliffhouse you are surrounded by the dramatic sights and sounds of this desert destination. Jutting from a massive rock outcropping above the desert floor the Cliffhouse is renowned for its spectacular views across the valley and providing a lively, casual destination to enjoy a menu of American classics with innovative preparations focused on premium steaks and seafood at great prices. The historic ranch house ambiance complete with a massive fireplace, expansive windows and rustic beamed ceilings creates a warm welcoming environment from which to gaze at the magnificent mountains, share a meal and conversation and stay awhile. The menu highlights vibrant flavors from the valley along with a generous selection of fresh fish and seafood. The wine list has been thoughtfully chosen to complement the food and provide reasonably priced selections including rare and limited bottles.
