We had dinner here and loved it. Rocky Mountain Trout was delicious and so was the Seafood Risotto. We also had the Ceasar Salad and loved every bite! Dessert was a Chocolate Mouse....the bowl was edible, that is all :)

This is a very nice restaurant and hotel. We did not lodge there, but we had a wonderful meal here on our last night. I read many reviews about how good the creme brulee was and it did not disappoint! Lovely atmosphere as well.

We went online to find a restaurant where we could have a patio lunch with our dog that is with us most of the time. The Cliff House came up so we decided to give it a try. The front porch is where you can sit with your dog. It was a cool day so we were the only people... More

Food was delicious, you can tell the chef really took time/care in preparing the meal. We both had the steak, it was prepared to perfection and beautifully presented. The staff was great, and the hotel itself is historic and classic. Truly creates for Elite dining experience.

We had the elk ribeye and the filet mignon. Both were excellent cuts, perfectly prepared. The lobster bisque was great, actual pieces of lobster, which is rare in my experience. The spinach salad was also good. Good beer selection.
