Great service. It was a little priced for what you got.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service.Excellent food and service. Will be back with my family for sure5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMA Naples landmarkWe visit from the UK twice a year and have been dining at Cloyds for many years. Having read several negative reviews on trip advisor we booked with some trepidation. We needn't have worried. The food ambience and service was just as we remembered and will be recommending Cloyds to our friends.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWhn we arrived, hostess wasWhn we arrived, hostess was texting and ignored us, a man came up, grabbed two menus and setaed the two of us (my wife abd me). We told him our name and tgat we had a reservation, and he ignored that. The issue was that we had reservations for four for a birthday celebration, the other members of our party were already seated at another table, and had they not seen us enter, we probably would have sat there for quite a while wondering where they were. Fortunately for us, the waitress, Jessica, was on the ball, new about the bithday, and the rest of the evening and dinner went off without a hitch. Great foo, excellent attention and service and superb ambience.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was first time at the restaurantIt was first time at the restaurant, good "Happy Hour", good service, very attentive staff and good Filet Mignon.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGave Cloyde's a 2nd chanceGave Cloyde's a 2nd chance after leaving on Valentine's Day. It is our new favorite restaurant. The lobster tails, French onion soup, and crab cake are all amazing!4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMI Came for the View...ButThe view of the bay is beautiful here and I requested to sit by a window with a well in advance reservation. I was seated as far away from the bay as possible and put next to the kitchen door. If the restaurant knows they are going to get rated with an open table guest, you think they would want to comply with requests. My daughter ordered the crab cakes and they had vegetables in them as an added filler. You usually would only see this at a cheaper restaurant. The menu is limited and there were no specials. I'm on a restricted diet and asked if they could give me more asparagus instead of the potato and they said no. I asked for the asparagus to be steamed. What I got was 3 buttered scrawny asparagus draped over my filet.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat are you waiting for?We went to Cloyd's on our anniversary back in July and returned because of that experience for a "just because" date night. Awesome once again!
The food, staff and ambience of Cloyd's is top-notch. We dined on lobster and crab cakes. Both were spectacular.
And our waiter, Patrick, was outstanding. We were in no rush and he allowed our conversation to flow uninterrupted. He was perfectly attentive yet unintrusive.
We'll be back again.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I really enjoyedMy husband and I really enjoyed our dinner at Cloyde's. My husband had the prime rib and he said it was outstanding. I had for the first time the pork chop. It was great tasting and very tender. I usually have the lobster tails which are always delicious , but I thought I would try something different and I was not disappointed.
Since Mike has taken over it has been great. I would highly recommend Cloyd'e's. it is one of our favorite resturants.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed the overall experience;Enjoyed the overall experience; the friendliness of staff from the front door thru the dining table made us feel welcome and well accommodated. Even the dolphins displayed their good form for us!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAmerican ExpressAs always dinng was great. Good to see server (Bob) has returned. The big shock of the evening was when the server (Bob( announced when paying the check that American Express was not honored anymore. No advanced notice was given. After all these years no mention at all of the discontinuation of AX. Not on the wed site no notice at the door. A little heads-up would have been helpful.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMCloyd's: A Benchmark in NaplesThere are few totally reliable restaurants in Naples...but Cloyd's tops the list of places you can take guests and relax. You know the food will be great and the service will be perfect. They've been at it for decades and it shows...they do a booming business. The crab cakes are solid crab; the mussels appetizer is the size of an entree; the chopped salad is fabulous. You really can't go wrong here with either the steaks or the fish...it's all good.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always enjoy dining atWe always enjoy dining at Cloydes. The steaks are wonderful ! We enjoy eating in the bar area-more casual and a great menu. I love the steak and iceberg lettuce salad. It is just enough food. The service is always great. We will definitely return.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had reservations for 7We had reservations for 7 and after reading the reviews we were concerned about the quality of the food.

A bit pricey, but a very nice restaaurant.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service were veryFood and service were very good.
The one negative was the unenthusiastic greeting and farewell from the maitre d' ( he never bothered to look up from his cell phone
texting to check on our meal or say goodbye.) He seemed totally uninterested in clientele.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMCloyde's in NaplesTook valued friends there and wasn't disappointed. Everything was delicious, and the bone-in rib eye challenges even Preston's for best steak anywhere!3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOur visit to Cloydes was veryOur visit to Cloydes was very good. The food was prepared just right. They offer "cold water" lobster tails which are sometimes hard to get in Naples, and it was prepared just right. Totally delicious. Our server was so attentive. It was an enjoyable evening.2/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
