Tried the new shrimp cake and it was quite tasty, date had the baked salmon. We shared a market salad and the shrimp cocktail appetizer. Martini's were right excellent. Can't beat Clyde's for the price.

The food was very good, though the menu has shrunk a bit. The service was outstanding. The tent worked great though it does get a bit noisy when it gets more fully occupied. Overall a great dinner with friends!!

10+ minutes before anyone showed up at the table. After several minutes, had to remind waiter about our drinks. Some minutes later, reminded him about the starter ordered at the same time, which finally arrived just before the entrees. He asked about dessert and then brought our bill while we were still eating the entree.

Good food, great service. Onething: Please eliminate the bacon from your clam chowder. I've been enjoying the clam chowder for 25 years and now I can;r order it at Clyde's anymore since you've added BACON. Please offer it the original New England way! Thank you.

Kitchen was not up to par for the large lunch brunch crowd. Eggs Benedict came out on soggy muffins with tough canadian bacon. Steak and eggs marginal with scrambled eggs over cooked and steak a joke-the butt end of a piece of meat that could hardly even be cut up.

Small menu has always been a strong suit. Yesterday's brunch was a disappointment!

Nice interior, food was good, nothing great just good. We sat in a booth, seats needed wiping, table was sticky. We had a nice server, but she spilled some of my drink while setting it on the table and didn’t clean it or even offer to wipe it.

Clyde's is always consistent. The food was tasty and reasonably priced. The service was extremely slow. I don't know if the reason was shortage of staff. Our waiter was very nice, and we should have commented on the long wait, but didn't.

Went for a good burger, got a good burger, and even in the heat, sitting on their outdoor patio in the shade was very pleasant.

Eggs benedict were so-so -- skimpy for the price as compared to other places.

Dinner was absolutely amazing! The restaurant itself is so dang cute. I was so impressed with the train going around. Adorable! The food was amazing as well. My only thought was that the rueben sandwich was just a bit dry, but the flavor was still amazing. Will definitely be coming again!

Unfortunately we booked an outside table and it was raining heavily. We got a bit wet sitting at our first table but once moved it was fine. Because of the rain the ambience wasn’t great.

Clyde’s is my standard for casual restaurants. If I eat out somewhere else, it’s because I want something Clyde’s doesn’t offer, such as Japanese or Thai food. Even when I want to splurge on a posh special-occasion dinner, I’m likely to choose the 1789 Restaurant, which is part of the Clyde’s group.

We always enjoy Clyde's and it was a perfect place to celebrate our 52nd wedding anniversary! Claude enjoyed his salmon and I enjoyed the shrimp and pasta - what large ones they were, too!

Covid has brought many changes to restaurants, clearly Clyde's is much behind rehiring staff. The service was very slow, sloppy (bread and butter was brought to the table after main course, water had to be requested several times, etc.) and inside it was extremely cold. There is NO reason to lower the temperature so much other than keeping those working there happy, but how about your customers? I have been at this Clyde's for decades, the service is much worse than before, food is more expensive. Try other places.

Clydes is a good place for a light lunch and catch up. It was quiet without the usual hectic ness when it is crowded and busy. Really nice to not feel rushed. Staff was attentive and helpful.
