Outdoor dining with a wonderful atmosphere
By KELLIANNE GAMMILL
As a Logan native, I never really visited Franklin County until I became an intern at The Preston Citizen. One of the wonderful spots I have discovered by working here is Deer Cliff Inn.
Deer Cliff Inn is a family-owned restaurant and lodge located by the Cub River. The restaurant was established in 1940, making it one of the oldest restaurants still in operation in southeastern Idaho.
The inn is rich with history. Located on an old Shoshone Indian campground, Deer Cliff got its name after panicked deer ran over the cliff to escape early settlers. The inn took the cliff’s name and uses nearby watercress to garnish its dinners.
After hearing about Deer Cliff from co-workers and advertisements, I made my husband join me for a night out.
We stepped through the doors and were immediately greeted warmly by the owner, Joy Dougherty. We chose to eat outside so we could listen to live entertainment, Gadget and the Professor. There was a $3 cover charge per adult for the band, which was definitely worth it.
