overpriced, poor quality and service. 4/30/2011

I've been here 4 times now. Every time, I've been disappointed with the food -- but the setting (scenery) is great. You'll wait sometimes 15 minutes before seeing your waiter. You'll then order steak, or ribs, and get very low quality meat poorly cooked (both the ribeye and filet are crap). Such a cool place - they'd make a killing if they simply bought better food... wait, come to think of it, it's always quite busy in there. I guess they are making a killing now - selling low quality food at high quality prices. Well done, Stone Cliff! And I keep going there because it's a nice setting and there's nothing better in the area. heh, such is life. more

Great Atmosphere and Food 7/19/2010

I have been there twice and both times were magical. Pros: good portions and staff was friendly more

Amazing service+Amazing value WHAAAT?? 2/12/2010

We have been everywhere this month on the search for the perfect date-night dinner. This place had it all! Although this restaurant is really known for the views and setting, it was rainy and dark so we really could only guess at what it would look like in the day, but the lights way up in the trees in the parking lot gave a nice ambiance. However even without the view, this place stood on its own. From the moment we arrived we were greeted with above average service. As we approached our window seat in the corner we admired the rustic decorations accented by magnificently high natural stained log ceilings and walls. The mood was further set by romantic low lighting provided by a warm fire, and tastefully placed iron and cow hide chandeliers. Our server ""Mitch"" , was immediately table side offering the wine list and specials. We had the smoked salmon chowder and the asparagus and goat cheese salad as appetizers. The portion size and plating was spectacular. We also enjoyed the house Ale that was buttery and light and a bottle of their reasonably priced white wine. For the entree the Smoked cherry baby back ribs were to die for. Not to be outdone the Northwest Cioppino was melt in your mouth amazing. Truly blown away by the portion sizes, granted this was a lodge setting but what VALUE!, The portions were such that we had leftovers of everything at meals end. Excellent value, exceptional service and an amazing setting makes this a new date night favorite for this couple** Pros: service,ambiance,value,taste more

Very nice 8/23/2009

We were very concerned after reading some reviews on here but had been told by several people that it was a great place to go. My wife had the salmon oscar and loved every bite. I had the grilled ribeye and it was wonderful. Slightly over the medium I ordered but so tender I could cut it with a fork. For those of you reading these reviews, it seems that everyone who thinks they are the best cook in the world, they can find fault in everything that they don't cook themselves. This was a wonderful dining experience. Pros: The view, the food, the service Cons: Not for romantic, a little loud inside more

very disappointing 5/31/2009

We live close by and had been thinking of trying this restaurant for awhile. The only thing we liked was the surroundings and view. It started off odd as the hostess acted completely put out that we didnt have reservations, but was still able to seat us immediately. Then we sat there for 15 minutes before a server came over. There were many open tables, but they seemed very understaffed. I figured with a menu so small, the food must be really good, but I was wrong. It was bad. I had the ribs which had good flavor, but were really tough. My husband ordered a med rare steak that was well done and very tough. The garlic mashed potatoes were not good either. We felt very ripped off that we paid almost $100 for dinner and it wasn't at all good. The whole experience was a big let down! more

WTF?? 5/18/2009

Ok, I thought the service was good, but i think we just got lucky. The food was absolutely horrible. I had the cioppino and it tasted like chefboyardee..no joke! i heard a lady complain next to me about the same thing. My daughter ordered a burger off the kids menu and it came with a preformed( obviously frozen) piece of meat between a stale bun. come on! no lettuce, tomato,or cheese?! she took one bite, i took the rest home for our dog. anyway, i thought about giving them another shot for brunch, but i'm feeling a little r*ped. we'll see.... Pros: nice location Cons: food!! more

A Family Birthday Dinner? Was a Homerun 5/7/2009

We went to Stone Cliff Inn for a birthday dinner, there were 9 of us. It was a home run; all the appetizer, dinners, and drinks were very nicely prepared, delivered hot and on time, each order was correct. The service with a very pleasant, and our server (I think her name is Jena) did a wonderful job, with a fun attitude and great smile and great service. Pros: The building, the view, the food, and the service. Cons: ... we had a flat tire in the parking lot...??? more

Stellar every time - a cool hideaway 5/6/2009

We live out by the Stone Cliff Inn and found it because I had a work dinner out there (it's kind of hidden being that it's up on the edge of cliff). We've been back several times, both by ourselves and with guests from out of town. Each and every time we have a wonderful experience... the place is always relaxing and quiet, the food is delicious, the view spectacular, the drinks good, and the price is decent, too. This is one of our favorite nearby places to eat. Pros: Great food, awesome view, cool place Cons: Hard to get to in the winter more

What a wonderful Valentine's day! 2/15/2009

My wife and I went to the Stone Cliff Inn last night for the first time in almost two years for Valentine's day dinner. Everything was wonderful! We arrived a few minutes early for our reservation and were greeted promptly by a hostess who let us know our table would not be ready for about 20 minutes. We understood because it was packed. We got a glass of wine from the bar where we met the manager and were seated about 10 minutes later. Our server was excellent, our water glasses never went empty and the food was excellent. Pros: Food, service, ambiance & the view of the river Cons: It is a little chilly/drafty sitting by the windows in the winter more

The View Is All They've Got Going On 11/12/2008

My family visited this restaurant recently to celebrate both my sister's and my birthday, and our entire evening was ruined from the very moment we walked in the door. I will say, that this restaurant is absolutely beautiful, with a beautiful location, but that is all they've got going for them. They were operating the night we were there without a functioning women's bathroom. Their servers were disorganized, and unable to accomodate our table as we were all served at spiratically different times rather than all at once. I never even received an order. When both of these things were brought up there was no apology. The people running this restaurant have a God complex like no other. In a struggling economy, it's amazing to me that this place cannot pull it together and step it up to set themselves apart and give their customer base a reason to come back. Pros: Beautiful View and Establishment Cons: Terrible Service, Disorganized, and Unwilling to Accomodate or Rectify Problems more

Beautiful Building, Amazing View, and Great Food 10/31/2008

I like to think that I know good food. My rapidly expanding waist line is evidence of this. So I can say with confidence that you would be wise to visit the Stone Cliff Inn. more

the view does not make up for the food 9/15/2008

My wife and I had ordered our dinner when the conversation between the waiter and the group sitting at the next table took place, the customer was questioning based on what they were seeing on the plate ""Whether the waiter or cooks had washed their hands?"". If we had not ordered, we probably would have left, and that would have been a mistake, for those of us that need absolute proof. Pros: The view and the drive there Cons: food more

My Wedding Rehearsal Dinner was RUINED! 5/1/2008

Dine at your own Risk 4/10/2008

Although this restaurant serves good food and decent service I would not recommend dining here. My husband and I have dined here frequently, usually paying with a credit. At our last visit the tip had been altered with a 1 written in front of the actual amount. The total amount had also been altered and that was what was charged to our credit credit. Although the restaurant will be crediting back the unauthorized $100 that was written in by them, it is still a sign of dishonest associates working in the establishment. Who knows what else has been taken from us or other patrons? Pros: good view of the river if you get to sit outside Cons: dishonest employee more

Low-quality food, great view, medium service. 2/17/2008

My experience at this restaurant was mixed. On one hand, during the beginning, the service was excellent. Lots of smiles and friendly greetings. The view was beautiful as well. But, upon eating our supposed ""sumptuous"" steaks, we quickly learned that we had mistaken a good view for culinary quality. We ordered the Steak Frite, which is a Bourbon style steak with carmalized onions on top. Now, I have had good or medium quality Bourbon style steaks as well as premium quality ones in restaurants throughout the U.S. But, this was far lower quality steak than I expected. There were no carmelized onions, the sauce was watery, and the medium well steak was more like the consistency of a well-done piece of meat from your local grocer. The two steaks were drastically different in texture and size; thus, we knew that consistency was a problem at this restaurant. The steaks were also served above room temperature, or tepid, as if they had been sitting while the fries were cooked. If you're looking for a good view and low-tier restaurant food, then this is the place for you. After asking the waitress to mitigate the offering of this half-eaten steak, she brought the chef and manager to explain to us why this was such an outstanding steak. In all truth (because this is probably the worst customer service I ever received at a restaurant), the chef and manager humiliated us in front of the other patrons - causing us to leave in utter frustration. Call it random, but I hope this never happens to other customers. To seal the deal, as we left, they gave us snide smiles and uttered in overt sarcasm, ""have a nice day."" This restaurant ruined our day. Pros: Great view Cons: Poor quality food more
