What they have printed on the menu is not what they serve i.e I ordered pan fried oysters and got deep fried oyster. Menu said filet bites, more like sirloin bites. The waitress was rude and was way overpriced for what we received

My husband and godsons and I wanted something a little different, so we tried the Cliff House. The lunches were delicious and reasonably priced and the waitress was skilled and attentive.
