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.

If you're under 40, Clyde's for an outdoor lunch on Friday is probably not your thing. However, if your hair has turned gray or white during the pandemic, it's a welcome event almost to the point of being thrilling. There were lots of us there on a recent visit and it was GREAT!

Went for weekday lunch and was not that busy. Service was very slow, unapologetic and then billed wrong amount. Dissatisfied

Two friends and I had lunch at Clyde's at Mark Center, which has been my neighborhood hangout for years. We sat outside under the awning Clyde's erected for outdoor diners during the pandemic. The server was friendly and helpful, and the food was delicious. I found there was insufficient mozzarella and basil in the heirloom tomato salad, but the tomatoes themselves were very good. The pan-seared salmon filet was large and moist, served atop perfectly cook ratatouille and a savory red pepper coulis. For dessert, the blueberry cobbler with vanilla ice cream was perfect. I have lunched or dined at Clyde's at least once a month for years, and I will continue to do so.

Food was good, could expand on the menu,
Close to raw, green beans could be cooked longer

Outside dining opportunity was appreciated. Nice tent, great separation. Food and service has remained constantly excellent, as it has from the day the restaurant opened. BTW, pickup/takeout service is excellent. Quality food that remains hot as it is well packaged.

I made a reservation but we were seated in what looked like an overflow very casual patio area. We were moved back into main restaurant when we requested the change but Clydes shouldn’t have made the mistake in the first place. Food is always excellent Service fine but a little slow I assume due to Covid understaffing. Overall a good evening.

Food was good, fish was a little off, bland (cod), pork chop was delicious and all the accoutrements were great! The place is always great, Mark Center restaurant is a beautiful space. Service was a little slow, yet the waiter was great - we appreciate that there is some Covid related slowness. Manager checked on us etc. We appreciate that they were accommodating and very cautious with Covid.

Strip was salty AF, fries were poorly fried. Just an average meal at best, likely won't return. Not like the Clyde's from years ago.

Whenever I visit a Clyde’s Restaurant Group establishment, I expect a high level of service and a quality meal. Sunday night’s visit exceeded my expectations. Our server, Gabriel, made us feel more like family that just patrons. He perfectly reflects superb hospitality. Thanks for a great evening meal.

The meal was outstanding. I would have the Icelandic cod again. I hear the swordfish is very popular as well. My mixed green salad was fresh and delicious. The atmosphere is stellar. The restaurant has a large menu, a full bar, plenty of seating, and has an outdoor seating area. Unfortunately, masks are again required while in the restaurant and not actively eating thanks to COVID-19 Delta. We had a really good time. Our server was new and could have been better. Overall 5-stars and we're definitely going back.

The menu has been cut so drastically and 1/2 of it
Is sandwiches. Not what we expected from a formerly greet restaurant. It was hard to find something interesting among the few entries offered. Sadly we were celebrating the 96th birthday of our Uncle and Clyde’s was always his favorite. Not any more!

We arrived to be surprised by the mask mandate regardless of vac status. No problem but should have been made aware prior to showing up. No masks with us, no masks were made available to us by the establishment. Set the wrong tone.
