I have been to clouds many times and it is always a fun place to be. I believe we live in a free country and the owners have the right to police it’s customers if desired but being policed and acting like our party were evil b/c we didn’t have masks is not cool. We stopped here for a drink and snack before heading to a different restaurant for dinner. The difference in the two restaurants was ASTOUNDING. The next one was vibrant, FULL of patrons and accommodating. Some in our party had masks, some did not at this 2nd stop and we were accepted and treated nice - much different than our time at clouds. I know we’re all trying to find our place in this mandate season and I respect clouds choice to police customers but they won’t be seeing me again.

Overall the food and the service was very good. Many of the tables for the outside seating had dust and debris on them and the waitress did not clean the tables before seating people.

Lovely waitress who was attentive and helpful
Food came quickly and was good.
Beer was awesome...menu was unclear as to those drafts that are served as 10oz pours.
Only one desert available.
Will go again.

We really love Clouds. More for the atmosphere and outdoor dining than anything else. As usual, the food is good, not great, but good. Foodies will be disappointed but if you like beer, check it out for the different options available.

There was a hair in my eggs Benedict. Waitress comped my meal, but still charged me for my coffee. I know coffee wasn’t much, but it would have been better customer service to comp my whole order. Just the principal

The food was great as always. All of the beer we had was good as well. They have done a nice job during Covid to maximize the space they have so that more people can come in and dine.

Service was pretty poor...took thirty minutes after ordering a mimosa carafe to get it to our table. Our server checked on us a total of three times and we were dining for over two hours. Felt neglected

Made reservations for outdoor. Did get to sit outdoors but “walk ins were prioritized” so was told didn’t have a seat when first arrived.
Service was fair to midland. Server had no idea on the beer or liquor options when asked. With minimal customers, took an usually long amount of time to have things like water glass refilled or follow up for any additional food or drink. Service could definitely been a bit better given less customers and only 2 people to serve. Maybe it was because it was a Sunday? Not sure.

Four of us visited clouds for a brunch for the first time and what felt like forever. We were all very pleased with not only our food and service but also the precautions taken by the staff to keep all customers safe.

Food was good....I just didn't like the sauerkraut....bratwurst and potato salad were very good...too many onions and peppers. Dessert was THE BOMB...peanut butter pie. Our server was amazing!

They did good with social distancing, both inside and out. They are only offering a reduced menu which is understandable but unfortunate. Wait staff was attentive and friendly.

We have always received top notch service at Clouds. This time was very different. Our server acted like he just woke up and didn't really pay attention to what he was doing.
