I've been coming to Clyde's since the 80's. I am a fan, their bartenders are great! The staff is awesome and the farm to table philosophy is high on my list!

Disappointing visit to Clyde's. Service very slow. Had to ask for pre-meal bread but it did not arrive until our appetizers was served. We had Cod, Rockfish and Pork Chop. All good but nothing to brag about. Just felt overall quality decreased since our last visit in the Fall, 2017

Very enjoyable evening. Sat at the bar first, where the bartenders were indifferent. However, the service for dinner was exceptional and the food was very good as well. Will go back but skip the bar scene.

Have always enjoyed the food here. But not on Valentines Day. We arrived at 5:00 with reservations to an almost empty restaurant that was full by the time we left. Waitress was the only good thing that night. Hostess was rude. Cream of crab soup was watery not creamy with a few tiny pieces of crab meat. Crab cake was small and the unadvertised side of a small amount of slaw with potato sticks on top was completely unappetizing. Pork Chop was good, but the sides again were not. Coconut Rum Mojito mostly tasted of watery. A very disappointing night for a very pricey dinner. We unfortunately won't be returning unless we hear something changes in the kitchen.

We have been frequenting Clyde's for years and have noticed much change there the last year or so. Service, food, and pricing are just disappointing ,and more should be expected of Clyde's. Clyde's has a lovely location on the lake, but we will be choosing other establishments in the future. Please make the necessary changes to keep your place in our area!

Great brunch! Met an old friend and had a lot to catch up on. Was able to have good conversation with low noise level. The menu had some of our favorite food that was cooked perfectly. The oyster stew was wonderful along with the smoked salmon and egg dish. Will definitely be going back.

This was my first time here for brunch, and I came for a family reunion with my sister, her kids, and our dad/Grandpa.

The service was great. Unfortunately, the food was disappointing.

The Huevos Rancheros was covered in sausage grease, excessive cheese, was missing sour cream, and was very salty. The omelets tasted like the eggs were from one of those pre-made egg beater mixes. They did not come with toast, and the fries that we subbed in, came with very few. The plate looked pretty bare bones.

I will not be returning for brunch anytime soon.

What a happy discovery! Fabulous meal with impeccable service. All is us were wowed. The menu has a nice variety to accommodate many palates. From the appetizers to the desserts everything was presented with care. The bacon wrapped scallops are a must-have! And the brownie sundae is big enough to share...but I didn’t! Enjoy a lovely evening at Clyde’s.

I had written on my online reservation that we were celebrating two birthdays that night and was disappointed that nothing was done to celebrate this occasion. I thought atleast a piece of cake or some acknowledgement would have been nice! Besides that, everything was perfect!

My bill was higher than expected, and I was disappointed that the trio of hummus offerings disappeared from the menu. But it's still a great place to meet friends for lunch, and there is plenty of free parking. It's also open on Mondays, which is another plus.

By surprise it was restaurant week so when in Rome. Excellent appetizer oyster stew, entree shrimp & grits finishing with a hot apple crisp & ice cream. We went for the wine pairing oh so good & just put the icing on the meal.

The server was outstanding! His willingness to help people figure out the bill, and his accuracy was a crowd pleaser. He served correctly! The personality and smile were a welcome pleasantry for the nine seniors at the table. He exhibited patience and respect.
Thanks.

The food was creative and quite good. I like the view of the lake, too.

Another fine experience at Clyde's. The place was busy even at 5 pm on non-football Sunday. A good indication of quality and popularity. The server was excellent and attentive. We'll be back for sure.,
