    Well the silver lining about Clyde’s closing after 45 years is the general manager Liz will no longer be around to spread her unique blend of a hostile personality and poor costumer service to the patrons in Columbia. The bad news is that Columbia staple is closing after 45 years. I feel badly for the patrons at Tower Oaks Clyde’s where the GM is headed.

    We had reservations for 7:15pm (outside sitting), but were waiting 50 minutes, because (like manager said “ we do not guarantee outside sitting”. That I nformation was not displayed when I was booking a table, the manager said that they called me in the morning, but this wasn’t true. Also, they don’t have oysters, because they go out of business in two weeks. We only found out when we made an order.

    It was a nostalgic visit to Clyde's of Columbia. My husband and I had our blind date there 29 years ago this month and we heard it was closing. We ate inside, as we had 29 years ago. It felt like we had the place to ourselves. It was a wonderful lunch. We've been to many Clyde's over the years - always a great experience. Farewell Clyde's of Columbia.

    We have been dining at Clyde’s in Columbia for over 40 years. We have never been disappointed in the food or service. Our recent experience was great as usual. We are extremely sad that Clyde’s is closing this location. We want to sincerely thank management, servers and the owners for many memorable meals throughout the years. Best wishes to everyone.

    It was fine except the sign said to wear a mask when conversing with staff which I did. However when I was talking to my party the waiter came over to pick up dishes and said I should be wearing a mask when he’s at the table. If that’s the case the sign should say so

    The food was really good and I felt that the restaurant was doing a great job of allowing social distancing and I did not fell unsafe which was nice. I also understand and didn't really mind the restaurant's requirement to wear masks whenever our waiter approached the table. However, our waiter seemed to really be "lingering" at our table when it was unnecessary and it was super annoying. For example, rather than bringing everything at once, he'd bring coffee and then creamer, and then come ask us another question (meaning we had to put masks on each time!). After getting our food (30 minutes after we ordered), he came over and asked us how it was after about 2 minutes but seriously talked for over two minutes to us which meant we couldn't eat and had to wear our masks. And it wasn't us talking; it was him! He just made it super awkward because it felt like we had to put on masks every time he came by (which was a lot) even when it should have been as simple as placing something on the table and walking away. I recognize this is new for everyone so I'm providing this feedback in hopes that the staff will recognize they should limit their interactions and try to reduce the amount of time they are talking to guests and thereby forcing them to keep their masks on.

    We had a corner all to ourselves. The service was very good and the menu items we selected were excellent. The ribs could have been cooked a little longer and the sauce needed more zest. My partner had no problem about his crab cake. We both agreed that we would look forward to dining there again in the near future.
