Diner Reviews
  • "The setting is stunning -- log mountain lodge, incredible views of the Clackamas River. The food was mixed -- we were in a party of 4, and some of us got excellent food (ribs, clam linguine --) but the $15 hamburger was not done as ordered. The wait staff was excellent - always attentive to their tables and serving us efficiently and well. The one puzzling problem we had was that we had a reservation, but when we arrived we were told that there was a delay of 30 min. We looked at the half full dining room and couldn't understand why our reservation would not be honored. As I was questioning the host about it, another host came up and said there was a table just opened up. We were seated quickly after all. Very curious. Misunderstanding?"

  • "The service and the beautiful day made this an excellent, pleasant, relaxed outside lunch choice. Two of the three entrees were excellent, but the salmon Caesar salad was not much to rave about. The tiny piece of salmon was dry and the greens were too wet and became limp before the lunch ended."

  • "We were seated by the window with a lovely view but over an AC vent and nearly froze. It is a really nice place and the service is really good. The food was good but not great. I had linguini with prawns in a white wine sauce and it was very bland. My husband had a steak, which he said was good (not great) and my 93 year old mother cioppino, which had a delicious broth but lacking in seafood (mostly contained fish). The outside seating is wonderful, however it was too long of a hike for my mother. I would go again for appetizers, brunch, or lunch - probably not for dinner. It is expensive for just OK food."

  • "We reviewed the brunch menu on line. Once we arrived and viewed the menu, brunch items were limited and the.menu was nothing like the one on line. There was a large party there and we waited 50 minutes for our food! The waitress was very pleasant and apologized for the wait. Once food arrived it was overcooked and cold. I have been here before and the food was very good. It appears they aren't able to accommodate the general crowd along with a party."

  • "An absolute gem by the clackamas river, the view was stellar especially as the sun was setting, and my BF being from the south really felt at home with how incredibly friendly the staff was! His favorite part was chatting with them, that and those AMAZING ribs! The noise from the road was a little annoying once in a while but the view of the river, the trees, the sunset, and the beautiful seating area made up for the occasional passing car. PLEASE go to this spot, I know my BF and I will be returning very soon!"

    Dined on 8/21/2014
  • "Good food, pretty setting but pathetic service, the waitstaff is untrained. Mgmt hires untrained waiters and then does not train them. My waiter carried 2 empty coffee cups in one hand with his thumb and forefingers inside the mug as well as many other unsanitary acts."

  • "A great place to go for good food and a nice view (IF you are sitting outside). Service was poor. One waiter (poor guy) was serving the entire inside of the restaurant...at the time we were there, that was about 8 tables of 4 or more people at each (mostly more than 4). He had no help from the hostess, or anyone else. (Should have at least had someone else taking care of drinks!). There were plenty of tables available, yet we were seated right by the bar and it was noisy. Views from inside are extremely limited. All of this...but the food was DELICIOUS!"

  • "We decided on Stone Cliff for dinner with an out of town relative we hadn't seen in years so it was a lot of catching up and not a quick dinner. We were there for over 2.5 hours and did not feel rushed at all which was very nice. The only complaint I have is that we did not have our water glasses refilled, which seems to be something that should be a priority for guests. The food was good, the view on the deck lovely. the overall experience was very nice."

  • "We were looking for a great place for brunch to celebrate a birthday and a chance to get together with friends. Although they do not serve brunch, they have an amazing selection of fresh breakfast. We gobbled that down on the outdoor patio/deck, overlooking the scenic Clackamas River. The hostess, wait staff and atmosphere were all spot on and we will definitely return."

  • "We live close by and eat there every other month. But we're always underwhelmed. I had a very expensive fatty rib eye. My husband will only order the burger. The waiter from NY however is terrific."

  • "This was our 4th time here and each time it's not quite as good as the 1st time. I got the blackened halibut which was really "fishy" tasting...not quite right for halibut which never has that taste. So maybe it wasn't fresh. And they had a mango salsa which was not a salsa. It was cubed mango with tomatoes and cilantro. Cubing a fruit and vegetable with no sauce doesn't make it a salsa. My husband had the hazelnut chicken salad which was very good (as usual). All in all, the dinner was ok for me and good for my husband. We will go back since most of their food is pretty good and you can't beat the view from their deck or inside their restaurant."

  • "Plenty of outdoor seating. Excellent, attentive staff. Fabulous menu. Great GF options. Great vegetarian options. Outstanding crusted chicken and garlicked potatoes. Inside was basically vacant...everyone wanted to sit outside! The only noise came from the Harley traffice on the road below."

  • "We ate outside. There were lots of bugs, spiders, bees. Our table was for two and not real roomy which made it very crowded when they didn't take away dirty/empty dishes and just kept bringing our next entree. They did mess up my order but were very accommodating in making it right. The wait for our meal was long and the food was not real hot but it was good. I would eat there again but would seek it as a first choice."

  • "We were entertaining relatives from Germany.. They were greatly impressed and we had a blast. The waiter was super. Most friendly and attended our needs happily. I will recommend this place to everyone. Of course it was not our first time and come back because of the food and service and scenery."

  • "We had a wonderful experience at Stone Cliff Inn... We enjoyed outdoor seating with a wonderful view... They were busy, because of the deck & table layout, it still felt very romantic. The food was delicious. For the most part the staff was very attentive and polite; the manager stopped by a couple of times to make sure that our food and experience was up to par. The only thing we didn't care for was our particular server. He was possibly having a bad day, or was possibly new... He just wasn't as polite or attentive as the other staff had been... He never acknowledged our thank you's and seemed to be really detached mentally from serving us. In general though, we really enjoyed it here and will be back. Hoping for a different server though."

  • "I love this restaurant and even had my rehearsal dinner for my wedding here several years ago. It has been my 'special occasion' restaurant for many years. However, this latest experience we had horrible service and had to ask multiple different servers, other than out assigned server, to get our basic needs. The experience took forever and we were very ready to leave by the end. We had to ask different servers for water, bread, specifics we had asked our waiter for and the check. I don't know if he was overbooked but it was very different than my other visits there. A friend age there recently and said their indoor experience was as good as always. Perhaps that is a difference. If we go back I will try and indoor window table."

  • "We had a wonderful experience and can't wait to return. The food was delicious and outdoor seating was great. Our service was a bit slow and I had to ask for some items several times. But our server was very sweet and this did not dampen our experience too much. I am looking forward to visiting again!"

  • "Our experience was overall not that good. The thing we were disappointed with was the quality of the food. We both ordered the Ribeye steak and were extremely disappointed and felt they were not worth what they charged. The meat was tough, overly fatty and under cooked."

  • "This place has amazing potential. The setting is amazing, the building is beautiful. The grounds could be spectacular. It's the little things, staff wears black but not uniforms. Extra chairs stacked near the dining area.. The food was great, for the price the little things should be taken care of. With that said, I'll go back. Great place..."

  • "Relaxed atmosphere, beautiful views, good food and great service is what we found when we visited Stone Cliff Inn for Sunday brunch. We loved that it's not far from the city, but feels like you are miles away! Can't wait to share this treasure with family & friends!"

  • "We've eaten here on numerous occasions, and have never been disappointed. The great experience starts from the time you drive into the parking lot surrounded by trees, birds and river view. Always greeted by friendly faces at the door, and the food has never disappointed us. Prices are very reasonable. Weather permitting, eating outside is always enjoyable. We will continue to surprise out-of-town guest, and local friends to the wonderful eating experience at the Stone Cliff Inn. Thank you."

  • "When we first arrived, we asked to sit outside by the railing and were told they were not using those tables because they expected rain (which did not happen while we were there). I was quite surprised. Isn't the customer always right? Why would any establishment say "no" to a customer? Our server (Jenna I think) was great! The food is excellent, but overpriced."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "So friends and I went there for brunch and found that they only had 4 items on the menu for brunch on Sunday. I guess according to the waitress, they have not done well for brunch so this is the new menu. Pretty disappointed in that. this is such a great location for all meals but always have a hard time with service and limited menu."

  • "Loved the scenic setting out on the hill above the Carver Bridge! If the weather is good, get a seat out on the deck which looks down on the Clackamas River...just gorgeous (but the road traffic can get a little loud at times)! Food is good...we had the hazelnut chicken salad, a sirloin steak and the chicken fettuccini alfredo. The steak was pretty good although not quite warm enough. And the fettuccini was marginal as the noodles sat in a too thin alfredo sauce that didn't have a lot of flavor (so we wouldn't order that again). But we will definitely be back for the view and ambience! Service was great and the coffee was really good, too!"
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "We had a fantastic meal and the setting couldn't have been better with the Clackamas River right below. It didn't hurt that it was a gorgeous evening and we could sit outside with a table overlooking the river. We will definitely return!"
