Cheryl, the owner of the bar and grill was awesome! Our family came in and pretty much took over the whole place. We ate, drank, played pool, talked to the locals at the bar, played music on the juke box and had an amazing time. This bar is super hip. Deliberately rustic and rusty. If this were in any other...

Stopped in town for the night. Not many options were open. The hotel recommended this restaurant. The owner was very pleasant. Food price and quality were very good.

The owners of the Cliff are seafood specialists, and get good raw materials from Alaska: crab, cod, etc. I like fish and chips a lot, and I like the F&C at the Cliff immoderately.

Who would have guessed you'd find a restaurant in central Idaho with fresh Alaskan Cod?? The owners of the Grill are from Kodiak Alaska and one was a fisherwoman, the other was in the fisheries organization and they receive fresh fish each day and know what boat caught the fish. The cod sandwiches were the best I've ever had.

I love what the new owners have done with this place - a great place in Fairfield for a bite, cocktail, conversation, and easy going atmosphere. And you can't beat the fresh seafood from Alaska!
