Clifford's is a great place to have seafood and general American fare. It's a good place to relax by the water with friends or family. I find it's best to go when the weather is spring-like or almost fall so you can sit on the deck. The view of the water is enjoyable and the fish waiting outside for a... More

The food was pretty good. I didn't even mind the wait. There's a nice view of the lake out on the back porch.

When our motorcycle riding season starts in April it's usually when Clifford's is opening for their season( they are a seasonal restaurant). We have been there to eat more than any other place, it is a perfect distance for us and we find the food as perfect also. The friendly staff have come to know us fairly well and make... More

Was exspecting more. My family went to celebrate my wife's birthday. Didn't have to wait long for a table, but it went down hill from there. We were seated next to receptionist and they lost us. Finally got a waitress attention after twenty or so minutes, said she didn't know we were there. Ordered and after another extended wait we... More

My boyfriend and I were in Elberton, GA on a Sunday to sightsee and explore state parks. We searched area restaurants and picked this one because it was on the water. The menu for Friday and Saturday is a combo of short order, like burgers and fries, and made to order, like prime rib, baked potato and salad. Sunday is... More

Well, the deck looking out over the water is probably the best part of Cliffords. The food is okay, and the service okay. We sat outside on a beautiful "almost" spring day today, and the view of the lake from their deck was very nice. Another kind of funny deal is that we had to serve ourselves drinks, meaning we...

We were camping at Calhoun Falls and visited this nearby restaurant which can be reached by boat or car. We were fortunate enough to travel by boat with friends. Easy boat tie up and dock access. There was no waiting for a table, and we requested to be seated on the porch. Unless the weather is bad, I recommend the... More

My husband and I ate there on a Saturday afternoon around 1pm. It was a little more causal than we expected. We weren't dressed up or anything, but when we came in, the waiter rushed over to greet us. He handed us a number (for which we would take to the table we wanted to sit at), two menus, and... More

This is a hidden gem that has stepped up their game over the past few years. The food is terrific and the setting is nice with a deck overlooking the water. This weekend's fare included a twist on stuffed peppers - served on polenta with a creamy tomato sauce. Not your usual marina food, although you can get some usual... More

This is the only restaurant on Lake Russell! It is only open on the weekends. The food is varied with all price points. There are gourmet specials each day as well as the standard menu.
