Looking for Cliff's Country Inn?
For all you long-time loyal fans of Cliff's Country Inn, we have some news for you. Cliff's closed its doors in January 2015, after 37 years of serving great food and libations to Saratoga racing fans and the surrounding area. After much consideration, owners Cliff and Kathy Barlow finally decided to hang up their aprons this winter. We are happy to report that they are now enjoying a well-deserved retirement!
The great news is...
Bill Carson, his wife Susie, and his sister-in-laws, Gail and April Greiner-Hammond, bought the property (not the business) and have totally transformed the place inside and out! Nope, it's not Cliff's Country Inn anymore, but it IS an awesome restaurant in the same beautiful location! And, yes, we serve prime rib every night! Bill might look familiar when you see him, he successfully owned and operated Ravenswood Pub in Clifton Park for 29 years so he's been in the restaurant biz a long time in this area and knows his stuff!
What Have We Done to the Place?
Well, let's just say that we've renovated every square inch of the place - top to bottom! The biggest hit so far has to be the deck which now has a gorgeous, panoramic view of Saratoga Lake. It's quickly become THE place to hang out and enjoy a cold drink and a great meal! Check out the renovations on our Makeover page. You can see all the before and after pics we've been taking since the day we bought the property and started the transformation to CWT (Carson's Woodside Tavern).
