Some friends who were shopping in Riverhead suggested meeting at Cliff's Elbow Room for lunch. Somehow I had never visited the restaurant, perhaps because it doesn't look like much from the outside. Appearances can be deceiving. We shared some steamers, and a single portion was large enough for three of us. The marinated burgers were melt-in-your-mouth delicious, and the fries... More

Great meal...nothing fancy, Just a great steak, salad, and drinks. We have the recipe for the marinade and were so happy to bring our son to the place where it all started. Cliff's didn't disappoint. You won't get a lot of atmosphere and it isn't fancy but if you are looking for a great steak and baked potato/french fries...you can't... More

My friend and I stopped in for dinner after wine tastings at 6 vineyards. The dining room was packed so we grabbed a seat and the bar to wait. We ended up having so much fun at the bar that we stayed there for our dinner. This restaurant is known for their steak. I had an excellent marinated steak sandwich.... More

HORRIBLE SERVICE. A bunch of friends and I (8) were out at the vineyards for the day, we figured let's try the elbow room since we always hear such great things about it. To start the night off we had a 730 reservation, we arrived around 715 and figured we could hangout by the bar until we were ready to... More

We were a group of six. I had recommended the Elbow room to the group. The service was fast and good. It was a Saturday night. The room was crowded but we had our drinks quickly as was our salads. We all had marinated porterhouse steaks. They were outstanding. Needless to say you have four new customers, as my wife... More

Local, old style with good basic food. Nothing extra. Get a burger or steak and a drink. Tolerable noise level.

First let me say that I had to travel 40 minutes to reach the restaurant. I had a gift certificate worth $45.00 from action glass which had so many restrictions on it; it was almost impossible to use. In any case I've had the stakes which are fatty and seasoned with an overly strong marinade, so I decided to try... More

I have been dozens and dozens of times over the years and always love it. Have been with family, friends, my other half, and even alone. There are many wonderful things to choose from that I could not limit it to one. I love the chowder, steak, duck, etc. The clam strips, baked, and of course the mushrooms. The steaks... More
