My husband had the ribs and thought they were tough. He even had trouble cutting them apart. I had the Salmon Chowder and loved it.

This was our first time at the Stone Cliff...food was good, service was great! Definitely will return when we can sit outside and enjoy the deck and view!

Service was amazing! Our food was brought out in a timely fashion, but was still cooked perfectly. The waiters were attentive but not pushy. Love it every time we come!

The service is excellent, the menu is awesome. My sirloin was just right and the stroganoff my wife ordered was great. She couldn't eat it all so I got to taste it the next day. It was still very tasty. Love the view and the setting.

We went for our 12 anniversary dinner and got to sit out on the deck. It was a perfect evening out with fantastic food.

Met a friend for a late lunch/early dinner. We were able to sit on the patio overlooking the river.
It was a relaxing, comfortable atmosphere. The wait staff was attentive but not intrusive. The food arrived in a timely manner and was scrumptious!
I’d return in a heartbeat!

Outdoor seating overlooking the Clackamas River on a beautiful summer day was hard to beat. Jesús, our server, was good without being obtrusive. Our visiting friends had the blackened chicken salad, and they were very happy with it. The smoked salmon chowder and the salmon cakes were pretty good, but not great. Still, all in all, a very nice lunch with great ambiance.

Kelli helped to make our evening very pleasant together with our 7-yo. She was awesome and made him feel like she was personally taking care of what he wanted, writing his name on his drink and helping him make the tough decision on what to order. The food came FAST! was amazing as always and atmosphere was relaxing.

A unique venue, a magestic log cabin restaurant with the most amazing views of the forest and Clackamas river as you are enjoying a chefs take on classic dishes. A special place to enjoy with friends and family. Thank you so much for creating special memories!!

We made reservations at 7 and showed up early and were going to sit at the bar till our reservation time. The hosts offered to seat us early so we said ok. Well when a better table opened up outside (at 7) we asked to move and were told they had a reservation coming in. Ahh we had a reservation at this time...... we made the best of the night since it was our anniversary but if I knew that’s what it was going to be I would have just went to Olive Garden. I was hopeing for something better for our anniversary. This is not a place for a special occasion a Friday night to dinner it fine. I will not go back for this type of dinner.

I think everyone was pleased with their food. I ordered the Top Sirloin which was the special and mine was very tough and chewy. There was one other in my party that got the same thing and his was very tender to cut and eat. I told our waiter and he was apologetic to me. I know Top Sirloin has marble but mine was really bad. Probably ate about half that wasn’t tough the rest I tried and had to spit out.

My husband and I celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary with dinner at Stone Cliff Inn, and it did not disappoint. It was our first visit, and even though we live 50+ miles away, it won't be our last!

Beautiful place, great staff. We had a reservation for 3 at 2:00 pm, and were seated a few minutes before time. Our server was quickly there to take drink orders. The cocktails were strong, no skimping on the alcohol. Appetizer was up quick and delicious, as were our entrees. Food was just incredible. Found our new favorite place to go and eat! Thanks Stone Cliff!!!

We had out of town guests who came to celebrate my husband and my birthdays. I had made the reservation and had called to make sure we had outside seating . Because of traffic we were 10 minutes late . I did call to let them know. No outside seating available-hostess said they don’t take reservations for outside .
Pasta and Pork Medallions were mediocre. Medallion sauce didn’t impress and the medallions were over cooked .
It’s been a favorite of ours this year but was disappointed tonight. Waiter did his best. Seemed extremely busy .

My wife and I went here for our 25th anniversary. We were able to be seated outside and it was absolutely wonderful. Everything was excellent from the moment we walked into the door. What stood out the most, aside from excellent food, drink and service was how relaxed the environment felt while what some may consider fancy. And what I mean is you can either show up in shorts or a suit and both would be fine. We will definitely be coming back!

I had the pork medallions. The pork was cooked perfectly but the gravy served with it was too heavy and overshadowed the pork. It would have been better with a light glaze or sauce. The flavor of the gravy was almost a beef, not pork.
Rice was excellent and so was the asparagus.
There were 2 out of three celebrating a birthday. Our server was kind enough to bring 2 free desserts for us to enjoy which I thought was generous.
Service was attentive, sharp, friendly and very professional. She labeled and dated our take home containers. Not many do that.

Sunday lunch - not crowded. Service was attentive without being bothersome. Beautiful day to dine outside - great view. Food was very good, interesting - hazelnut chicken salad and a portobello mushroom burger. Looking forward to returning for dinner.

We made reservations for 5:30 on a Saturday thinking it wouldn't be too busy, but it was packed. The noise level in this restaurant, because it is a log structure, can be deafening because there's no sound-deadening. There was a large party of young people next to us which made it even worse. The waitress had to really raise her voice and so did we, to be heard. We couldn't comfortably carry on a conversation at our table. That said, we have always enjoyed coming here; with the view of the river and the trees, it's a really nice setting and the service is always excellent.

Had the onion rings tower - great - and the bread and special butter is wonderful. Our guest had the bacon-wrapped meatloaf but sadly it was blah and dry. My husband had the special Shrimp Etouffee and loved it; hoping they had that to the menu. I had the Fettucine Carbonara which is always good.

Of course we will be back, but not likely on a Saturday. One time there we were lucky to get a table on the second floor - that's the best; wish it was open all the time!

We ate here for our anniversary and the staff was great, we ate on the patio and they gave us a great view of the river. It was a perfect night and the food was great. Watching the sunset go down along the river was beautiful.

We had family in from New York City, and we took them to Stone Cliff before their flight home. We ate outside, it was just a beautiful setting. The service and food were excellent, could not ask for anything more, especially when you have a guest.

We wanted to take my mom to a special dinner . We picked this place because of its fantastic views but we're really disappointed with the food. My salad was wilted and my mom's food had so much pesto she couldn't eat but 2 bites.
