Clydz is a lively New Brunswick destination with a subterranean atmosphere, reminiscent of a 1920's speakeasy. The freshly rose-petaled entrance is a prelude to a truly unique dining experience. At Clydz, the fare is anything but ordinary. The menu is comprised of "exotic" Contemporary American Cuisine, showcasing items such as kangaroo, ostrich, wild boar and python. Traditional favorites such as filet Mignon, scallops and duck are well worth the visit.
The cuisine is not the only element that sets Clydz apart from the rest. The trendy bar, enhanced by fish tanks and fireplaces, offers an extensive and adventurous martini and cocktail selection. Clydz own “private label” vodka was introduced fall ’11 with great success.
When making a reservation please keep in mind, tables will only be held 15 minutes past the reservation time. Due to high volume during dinner, an $18 food minimum per person is required. Reservations for cocktails only are not accepted.

Clydz Ratings and Reviews
Came here for Valentine’s Day and had such an amazing time. The food was incredible and spaced out perfectly. We drove over an hour to come try all of the exotic meats and it was well worth the drive. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. With our meal for Valentine’s Day, we each got a complimentary glass of champagne for toasting and a single rose as we left. I’ve already highly recommended this place to my family who also enjoys trying new foods. I will definitely be coming back.
Table in the middle of the room even though we requested a table in the perimeter and our chairs kept getting bumped into. Python appetizer included only 2 pieces. Game tasting was good but quail had a heavy charcoal taste. Maybe I would try again but not on a Saturday night.
Me and my girlfriend came here on a Friday night. The bar was noisy, but the dining room area we sat at was great at blocking out most of the noise. The food here is fantastic and the service was great. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about where the food ingredients came from. The order in which the dishes came out was well thought out. The price is higher than most restaurants, but you get what you pay for, great quality food. I highly recommend.
Clydz was one of my go-to places when we wanted a good cocktail and atypical but well prepared meals (great game selection). However the last two trips while good were not enough to make me want to return ASAP. On the last trip the cocktails themselves were ordinary and the dishes somewhat uninspiring. The atmosphere is great and the place still has the nice prohibition vibe. Service could use a tune-up too.
Been there many times before and had wonderful meals and service. This time was not good. The service was poor. Had to ask for drinks, water and ice. Asked for a lime for my drink three times. Steak was rare when asked for medium. Order side pasta. Is was watery. Came back well. No manager came over to table. Unfortunately given the cost I would not go back.
This was our third dinner at Clydz. Our second visit was during Restaurant week, and the service was rushed and the food mediocre. We decided to try it again and were glad we did. The food was excellent ... especially the bison steak and the duck. The service was also excellent. Highly recommended for those seeking unique food well-prepared and excellent service.
My girlfriend and I were celebrating our anniversary by trying out a new place with a unique menu. We were not disappointed! From the incredibly attentive and friendly staff to the beautiful dining room, Clydz left nothing to be desired. They even set our table with rose petals scattered across it to help in our celebration! Great food, great wine, great experience! We will be back.
It’s a little tight but cozy. A little loud but more vibrant than noisy . The meal was absolutely fabulous. The menu features some unique fare, all our choices were cooked and seasoned to perfection. Our waitress was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. The entire staff was pleasant and helpful. The cocktails were well crafted and the wine list abundant. Clydz is a rare find and a value as well. I highly recommend it . A great spot for jaded foodies. We will return often.
This was not our first time to Clydz and the experience was just as good as past dinners.
I started with a glass of wine and my boyfriend with a cocktail. Appetizers were the cucumber and crab salad for me and the crab cakes for him. Both were full of crab and very tasty.
Dinner was the organic chicken for me and the bison hanger steak for him. Again, both were tasty, flavorful, and his steak was cooked to his liking.
The noise level was a bit high in the dining room, as there were a few large groups, but once they left it quieted down. We generally eat at the bar when we dine, but Saturday night is not the time to do that because they have a very lively bar.
Dinner for 2 ran us $150.00, prior to the tip, and that is generally what we pay.
We absolutely love the menu at Clydz & usually try something completely different every time. Our evening was "interupted" by a very loud crowd of eight that didn't have much respect for the other diners; they yelled across the tables & spoke & laughed very loudly. Most of our dinner conversation was about how loud they were or about how they had stopped for a while (when the entrees came out). I thought someone in management should have gone over & said something to them. While this evening wasn't "perfect", it will not stop us from coming back again & again.
My son is a senior at Rutgers and we wanted to take him out to dinner on a Saturday night. We chose Clydz based on the great reviews of others and we were not disappointed.
Our server Craig was fantastic and provided entertainment and a suburb knowledge of the dishes and drinks. He helped make it a very enjoyable evening. Our food was excellent and unique as we ate appetizers, main courses of Bison, Gator, Lamb, and a couple of desserts. We had a wonderful night and a lot of fun. I highly recommend.
We were visiting that area of NJ. Prior to coming out we found Clydz online and thought the menu looked interesting.
We were not disappointed. The duck breast and diver scallops were fantastic. The wine list was very extensive. Service was very attentive and personable.
The only thing that could've made it better would've been if the scallops were wrapped with prosciutto. But that's what I do at home.
Yes, we plan on coming back to Clydz next trip out there.
Kudos to the chefs and service staff.
