Mask Usage
We know it is no fun to wear a mask while enjoying a night out, but our staff's safety is no laughing matter.
We require all guests to wear a mask while moving about the restaurant, and when speaking to Clyde's employees.
Masks have been a hot topic, with passionate views on all sides. With our team and their families' health at stake, we must err on the side of caution. We hope you will understand and look forward to the day, hopefully soon, when we can all throw our masks in the trash.

Can’t say enough about the service at Clyde’s today. Both the hostess and our server were great.

We made a reservation a week in advance and we were able to get exactly what we wanted. The service was perfect and the food was delicious. I just wish they brought ice water first.

We had a very nice separated table - the only down side was the noise from kids playing on the green - part of dining outside. We did have an opportunity to observe the clean up after a family left from a table next to ours. It was good but not completely thorough. A quick wipe down of the table and a minimum wipe down of the chairs. Food was very good but we would like more vegetable choices.

Good outdoor atmosphere, but food and drinks are overpriced for what you get. Chicken is dry and not a lot of flavor, salad barely had any dressing, and wine pours seems smaller than other places. Gave this place a few tries, and tried various dishes, but all of it was just ‘meh’. Not worth the cost.

The restaurant seemed short-staffed, and this affected the food, I think. I had to wait an hour for my food (a cheeseburger) - and when it arrived, it was lukewarm, nearly room temperature - and cooked extra-well, instead of medium. To the server’s credit, when I asked her to take it back, she did - the kitchen redid the order pretty quickly, and the problem was solved. Clyde’s also took it off the check. But frustrating. An hour is a very long wait for dinner.

One other problem - someone was smoking a cigar on the bench right next to our outdoor table. I’m pretty sure it’s a Clyde’s bench - if so, Clyde’s should put a no-smoking sign by its outdoor benches, or have the hosts inform those sitting there that they can’t smoke there. I ultimately asked the cigar smoker if he wouldn’t mind smoking somewhere else - and he was very nice about moving. But I felt uncomfortable asking - it could’ve ended differently - and the burden of keeping smokers away on Clyde’s property should be on Clyde’s - not the customers.

Had not been to Clyde’s in a while and I always remembered the food to be of high quality. Unfortunately, the quality of food was not very good. Very disappointed.

Outdoor dining is very comfortable. Chairs and tables are all wood and each has an umbrella. The outdoor decor is very nice and this location is right by the fountain so there is a lot to look at. The food I always good and the service was excellent.

I know Clydes is a chain, but have had decent meals at their locations in the past. Unfortunately this time was pretty disappointing. I ordered steak frites and when my meal came the steak was definitely not hanger steak, so when I asked the waitress said oh we ran out of hanger steak so it’s filet - they definitely should have told me because I didn’t want filet. If I did, I would have ordered it, right? The options for a healthy side dish were pretty slim. I got spinach and it was drenched in water and completely soggy. The rest of the food was edible but just not tasty. Bread and dessert were the best parts, and service was good. Since the whole point is the food, though, I don’t plan to go back.

We told the waiter that my daughter had a nut allergy and he assured us that her meal would have no nuts or cross contamination. When her salmon arrived, it was sitting on a bed of wild rice filled with PECANS! I cannot stress how dangerous this is and thankfully I noticed the nuts before she took a bite. She had to wait for another dish to be prepared and by the time it arrived the rest of us we finished and her salmon was RAW and inedible. We will not be returning.

Making people wear masks everytime a waiter comes by is ridiculous. I spent more time putting mask on and taking it off.

The noise level is fine it’s outdoors. My meal was very good but slow in coming out. At night I would not notice but when it’s a work day I need quicker service as I have calls to get back for. The waiter was very nice. They have done an amazing job at providing a great dining experience while maintaining the safety protocols.

We sat on the patio which was very nice. The food was fine - Eggs Benedict and a shrimp salad. The Bellini was tasty as was the coffee cake. The waiter was very sincere but seemed flustered. Maybe he was new.

All and all we had a pleasant lunch.

The service was great but the food was overcooked specifically the poached eggs had no runny yolk and was like a yolk in a hard boiled egg. The food also took quite a long time to come out and we had two small kids or else we would have sent the food back.
