Our waitress provided excellent service, the food was very good, and we didn't have to wait a long time for it. They seated us at a distance from other diners so that we felt safe from a health standpoint, and they require masks except when eating and drinking of course.

My experience at Clyde's was great. It was a pretty slow Sunday night, but this just meant that we were able to be in a quiet corner and receive attentive service from our waitress.

No surprises. As usual my guest and I enjoyed a tasty and attractively-presented lunch, with attentive service and quiet ambiance.

Clyde's of Gallery Place has become our restaurant of choice for Sunday lunch. We have always been very well cared for by everyone who works there, but of course, the people who we spend the most time with are the people who help us plan our meal and then deliver our lunch exactly the way we ask them to. One thing never varies for me, and that is oysters to start my meal. The oysters at Clyde's of Gallery Place are always fresh and well shucked, and the selection is good. If you need help in picking a type of oyster, their experts will be of great help to you. I think that customers pick a place where they feel comfortable, and my daughter and I have found ours.

Drinks were great but overpriced. Wings were super small. Crab and artichoke dip was good but 1/2 the bread was over cooked. Cubano was good but a little greasy.

It was very nice except we had a weather cold front come through and they never adjusted their thermostat and had the AC on full blast. Talked to 3 tables and everyone was cold but the staff couldn't do anything about it. One table of 4 just got up and left. I understand that the staff are running back and forth and are not cold but...Nothing worse than sitting in a nice restaurant and freezing.

Our waiter Anthony R was very attentive but gave us plenty of time to relax and dine at our leisure. The food was delicious and cooked to perfection. We dined before going to Cap One Arena for an event, it was absolutely the right choice.

The heirloom tomato salad was spectacular. Really delicious. The Summer BLT was actually a bit too large. I had that sandwich at a different Clyde's and it was so good. The one last night at Gallery Place had a little too much tomato in it. So it was a bit too tall to try to eat and the bread got soggy quickly. It was, of course, delicious, but I needed a bath after attempting to eat it.
Love Clyde's. Consistently good food in a nice atmosphere.
Juan was pretty good despite being stretched thin. He has a delightful personality and real talent.

Food just Ok. I had the DFC Chicken Sandwich and it was over cooked and dry. I wouldn’t order it again. We had to almost beg our waiter to take our order and then he never once came by the table again. We didn’t get all that we ordered, no one cared enough to check in to make sure we we ok, no drink refills at all, and we had to stop another waiter to get our check. All in all, The restaurant should be embarrassed by their performance. I’m not likely to return.

Our oysters were fresh and good, the rest of our meals were old favorites, and as always were just fine. Prices seemed to have increased somewhat since our last visit, but that is to be expected as restaurant workers salaries have finally take a step in the right direction - UP. Wine price has also increased, and I'm not too sure about why, unless it is due to the supply chain problem that comes with rapid growth. All in all my daughter and I enjoyed our lunch at Clydes of Gallery Place.

The service was great! The oysters (Oysterville) are what I'll be ordering first from now on, they were delicious. Our main course was equally delicious and dessert is a must! You won't be disappointed!

We had a great time and enjoyed our burgers even if the orders weren’t exactly right. One came w/ fries vs salad and the other was less “well done”, but both were delicious and exactly what we needed. Our server was charming and helpful, and I hope we get het as a server again in the future. 🙂

Covid has caused Clydes to limit it’s menu and many of the favorites are gone. Nice place but the menu needs to bring back peoples favorites like: Crab Cakes, bisque and coffee cakes.
