We were a group of six. I had recommended the Elbow room to the group. The service was fast and good. It was a Saturday night. The room was crowded but we had our drinks quickly as was our salads. We all had marinated porterhouse steaks. They were outstanding. Needless to say you have four new customers, as my wife... More

Local, old style with good basic food. Nothing extra. Get a burger or steak and a drink. Tolerable noise level.

First let me say that I had to travel 40 minutes to reach the restaurant. I had a gift certificate worth $45.00 from action glass which had so many restrictions on it; it was almost impossible to use. In any case I've had the stakes which are fatty and seasoned with an overly strong marinade, so I decided to try... More

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
