Trummer's Restaurant recently underwent a 10 year renovation and relaunch in Historic Clifton. This is where New York City meets Historical Charm. Owners Stefan and Victoria Trummer bring their extensive New York City restaurant experience and passion to small town Clifton to offer a unique dining experience. Our chef, Jon Cropf, helms from Charleston, South Carolina and brings an entire new menu focused around the French Rotisserie. The desserts are not to be overlooked as Meagan Tighe has been perfecting her tempting desserts in top kitchens in New York City and Charleston, South Carolina.

Trummer’s Restaurant is engulfed in history that dates back to the 1800’s and brings an edge to the historical area. Each floor has something special to offer for the eyes as well as the palate. Come see for yourself why we continue to receive rave reviews from both critics and guests alike!

The service was perfect!! The waiter appeared magically just as our table thought we needed something. Between the 5 of us the sampling of the food was enough to know- everything was perfectly cooked and the flavors were incredible. This is a must experience spot.

We ate outside Saturday night on the upstairs patio. It's a delightful place, surrounded by shrubs and trees. The meal was excellent and the service also excellent. A highlight of the evening was the 8 o'clock train hooting and honking behind us as it traversed the town (the tracks go right through Clifton).

It’s a beautiful restaurant. I love the short ribs but the chef put so little polenta with it, like 2 spoonfuls. And the consistency is too watery. I just love polenta & expected more from an amazing restaurant. Everything else is fantastic. Especially, our waiter Jessie & a lady. They’re both friendly & made us feel welcome. The sage drink too is a must have!

Our first visit since their renovation and we were so pleased with our dining experience. The staff (from the hosts to the waitstaff) was attentive but not intrusive. The food was delicious and the went to great lengths to insure that we had social distancing and felt comfortable eating in their dining room during COVID 19.

We had an outstanding meal and a truly memorable evening at Trummer's! Our son was visiting from New Mexico and we wanted to surprise him with a special dinner and Trummer's certainly did not disappoint! It was raining heavily and we were getting a little wet on the side porch, so they moved us to their other outside seating deck and everything was absolutely perfect! Make sure to order the cornbread as a starter with a delicious glass of wine or a cocktail. It was the best cornbread that we have ever tasted! We then had halibut that was absolutely outstanding. We, of course, had to try their desserts after such an incredible dinner. We chose the key lime pie and strawberry shortcake - both were incredible! Our servers were delightful, people at the other tables were friendly and fun and it was an evening that we will long treasure! If you are looking for a truly fabulous dining experience, go to Trummer's. We highly recommend it!

We had a wonderful, safe, relaxing dinner at Trummer’s and almost forgot we were in a pandemic. The staff were upbeat, friendly and attentive. I love that we were able to reserve a seat on the patio, it is so beautiful and the tables were nicely spaced. The restaurant overall has an upscale but relaxing atmosphere. Everything we tried was flavorful and creative (including the cocktails) A wonderful evening and a must-try restaurant.

Excellent experience. After some confusion about our Open Table requested "great table for engagement celebration" resulting at perhaps worst table in the restaurant at a table in a dark corner on offside of restaurant, the owner stepped up and had us seated at a perfect table in the main dining room. Excellent meal and service by JR. Thanks, john

Went for my Wife's Birthday. Started off the evening with a refreshing glass of complimentary champagne. Finished it off with a plate with Happy Birthday written in chocolate and some delicious chocolate balls. My wife and I both started dinner with a fabulous Chilled Carrot and Ginger soup. I had some beef shortribs with roasted potatatoes and my wife had a homemade pasta dish with extraordinary sauce.

The experience wasn't limited to the food. My wife enjoyed Trummer's signature cocktail - the Titantic. Perfect for a hot summer day in the shade on their beautiful patio. I'm a fan of gin and was thrilled with their Sage cocktail (Gin, Sage, Lime and Elderflower).

We have been to Trummers's several times over the years, and always have a great experience.

The service was excellent but the decor was sparse and plain. They should take advantage of their beautiful patio with some music and add some plants or flowers.

We enjoyed our first dinner at a restaurant outside at Trummers. The service was excellent, as was the food. We ate on the front porch, so the noise from the traffic was louder than we expected.

It was a special occasion and in the time of COVID19, we felt that Trummers did an excellent job making it memorable.

Thank you so much!
