Although open several years we had never had dinner here until this weekend. Only open three evenings we made a reservation for Friday night. The place was full, but we were seated straight away. We shared the fried green bean appetizer with dip and I had a House Salad and the wife a Pesto. It was great. My wife ordered... More

Intimate retro fine dining in an old ( 70 years? ) re-purposed service station. Chef Roger Mitchell prepares to-die-for menu selections. There is some kind of off-menu special every night (normally open THURS/FRI/SAT), but because of small size, call ahead to be sure of availability. Groups often reserve whole restaurant for things such as Christmas & Retirements. Roger & Sandra... More

Mitchell's Grille-=open only Thursday thru Saturday is a gem in this small central Texas town of 3400. The place has a small but very adequate wine list. There are a number of selections by the glass, including a Muscato that both my sister and wife love and a very good Merlot for me. We each had different entrees--one had shrimp,... More

Recently held a surprise birthday dinner party for my husband at the Grille. As usual the food was delicious; the waitress was wonderful; and we all left full and happy. Mitchell's is our "special occasion" choice hands down; it rivals anything you might find in the "big city" wherever it may be. The only suggestion I have is to keep... More

We've recently moved to Clifton, not expecting to find such a nice quality Place to Eat & Relax. It's so nice to receive the Fine Food & Service without having to travel an Hour or so to get it. The First visit we were told we'd need a reservation the next time, this place is so popular, reservations are well... More

We finally tried Mitchell's Grille last night for our anniversary dinner. Loved the atmosphere, the service was great and the food was delicious. I had an icy cold wedge salad and salmon with chipotle glaze. Sides of truffle cream corn and asparagus were great. Hubby had the grilled pork chop. We shared bread pudding with ice cream for dessert. Yummy!... More

We moved away from the Waco area 10 years ago. At that time, Clifton was a pretty sleepy little town. Now, there are a number of antique and other cute shops and this great restaurant. We went with friends who had been before. The menu had enough selection for everyone. My husband and I shared a salad and I got... More

This is an adorable and very tasty little restaurant in a quaint town! The food was great, the dessert was delightful and the atmosphere and waitress were wonderful. My only request would be to turn the music down (or preferably off) because it is very hard to hear across the table and the acoustics are not good enough to play... More

I love Mitchells Grille.The food is consistently terrific and beautifully presented. The service is delightfully friendly and competent. I like the entire wait staff, although we are thrilled that Donette has "adopted" us and serves us regularly. She even texts us to give us a heads up to come earlier on band night because it gets too loud to talk... More

We have been to Mitchell's Grille several times. Whether as a couple or with friends we always enjoy our meal. Collectively virtually all of the menu items have been tried and everyone has given them a great thumbs up for flavor and value. The owners are very attentive to the customers needs and the staff is very knowledgeable and friendly.... More
