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.

I had lunch with two of my sisters, who were visiting from Ohio. Everything was very good, our server Landon was super-good. He was pleasant, friendly, made good conversation with us and helpful. We liked him so much!!!

The only negative was the country music as background music. Not really too loud, but we could hear all the words and it seemed intrusive. Not enjoyable.

Our server, Cheryl, was attentive and friendly. I never had to ask for a refill on my iced tea! My chicken sandwich and side salad was so filling that I was not hungry the rest of he day!

Everything about our experience was perfection, the staff was nice the food was great, the only problem was that we switched plates due to not knowing what one person ordered and had to request the steak be cooked more, but that was our problem we caused and we are so ashamed.

I was disappointed to find out that an Open Table Reservation did not apply to the outside dining area. Especially in this difficult time during the pandemic you would think that would be encouraged. Very displeased with the service and ability to accommodate this reservation.

Had lovely dinner at Clydes. This is such a beautiful restaurant and now food is also a very good reason to come in as well. We had the meatloaf which sounds mundane but it was excellent. Also had the steak salad. It came with a perfectly prepared portion of tenderloin along with a crisp romaine salad with bacon and blue cheese. Yum!

We were able to celebrate my friends 86th BD at a table outside, on beautiful setting with plenty of sunshine and fresh air! The food was very tasty. We had a very enjoyable luncheon.
A minor serving error was that per our waiter, you had "run out" of candles!

Sunday lunch was disappointing. Lobster shepherds pie was bland and soupy. Bacon-horseradish meatloaf was average. Side dishes were very good. Waiter kindly brought us coffee cake when we asked for bread, and it was delicious. This restaurant is hit or miss, unfortunately.

Outside seating was very well done. Noticed some heaters so it may continue to be a spot to patronize for eating outside as the temperatures drop. Food was very good, music was a little too loud for our liking, service was spotty but ok. We’ll try it again.

Celebrating a special birthday on a chilly October day during a pandemic can be a challenge. Willow Creek helped by saving a special table right in front of the fireplace for us. All the tables in the room were appropriately distanced and the entire staff was correctly masked for both safety and the comfort of the guests. COVID aside, the food was delicious, although the wine was oddly expensive. The service was exceptional. Clyde's may be a chain, but it's one of the good ones!

All except my food was excellent -- I had the Chesapeake eggs on an English muffin -- the muffin was crusty and almost impossible to cut !! I ate the top leaving the muffin on the plate -- next time I'll request a biscuit.

No seasoning on the food. Need a better selection of vegetables and you need to add more vegan options.

We were able to sit outside for an early dinner. A little cool but still nice.
Staff were friendly and helpful and they and we were conscientious about everyone wearing masks.

Loved it! What a great place and beautiful gorgeous spot. I came here for my birthday and service was perfect. Felt completely and respectfully save pertaining to applicable COVID restrictions and the food was amazing. It's been a while since I've been to a Clyde's restaurant so I remembered why I like it so much. I know this sounds like to good of a review but definitely come here! And get the lobster!

The servers were unfriendly and the service slow. Our coffee arrived cold and we still had to pay for it after asking for our bill and to remove the charges. On arrival, the ambience is ok, but once you are are seated, the ambience is gone and the servers are wooden

Our visit occurred right after they expanded their menu from their initial post-COVID limited one, and we each had one of their steaks--NY Strip and Hanger. The steaks were great, especially with the chimichurri sauce. All the rest of the food was good with exception of the cheesecake which had a slight taste of freezer burn, masked by a cherry sauce. Overall, a good anniversary experience though they need to ensure any food saved during COVID is still worth saving.

Had a very nice dinner at one of favorite restaurants, Clyde's! Food was excellent but a bit disappointed in service. Our server was very nice and friendly but had a hard time finding him after he took our order. We were thinking of dessert but finally gave up and just flagged him down for a takeaway box and the check. I try to give servers every break since I know it's very stressful for them operating in our current environment but management needs to be aware of how their decisions are affecting customer satisfaction.

The real star here is the decor. The buildings and spaces are amazing. The food is just fine, but the menu and cooking style are about 20 years behind, and the ingredients seemed average quality. However, the prices reflect that and it's a good value overall. I think brunch would probably be a good option here. This is a great place to come enjoy a beverage and a snack, just not a destination for dinner. If they were to hire a chef to revamp the menu to bring it up to true farm-to-table standard, this place would knock it out of the park.

My two friends and I had lunch here yesterday. I had the Lobster Shepherd's Pie and would have liked it better if they had made it with a seafood sauce rather than a vegetable sauce. I ate the whole thing, though! My two friends had the Cheeseburger and the Rigatoni Bolognese ... everyone was happy and very full when we left. The social distancing was not a problem and everything was clean and beautiful, as usual.
