Unfortunately, Cliff House just broke the sad news that they will be closing their doors at the end of the year. Their last day is December 31, 2020.

Thanks KRON4 for sharing that the restaurant had updated its website with a notice about its closure. Read Cliff House’s statement.

The closure is only partly due to the pandemic. The Cliff House points blame at the National Park Service for delaying a long term concession contact. The current proprietors have been operating the restaurants for over 47 years, four years before it became part of the National Park System.

Sadly, there won’t be any last meals served at the restaurant. The Cliff House, perched atop Ocean Beach, attempted takeout service for about 10 weeks during the pandemic, but decided it wasn’t viable.
