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.

The food and service were excellent.

Our only problem was that because we booked on Open Table we were placed at the bottom of the waiting list for outdoor seating.

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.

Went to Lunch outside at Clydes so sad they are closing. July 18th.
We have been going there for over 30 years! Lots of business lunches and “Dates”. Great food today, great service from Ryan. Good luck to all the restaurant staff to find new employment.

Ms. Liz is the BEST!!! Food superb as always... I was very happy with the Covid19 friendly setup. My friend enjoyed her Bday so much. Our waiter was a delight! Gonna miss the Columbia location because it is always a great value for your time and money!! Wonderful view of the lake too!

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.

The patio was set up nicely with adequately spaced tables. We had a wonderful meal.
I would recommend that everyone who has loved Clyde's for the past 45 years go within the next two weeks, because they are closing on July 19.

We enjoyed our dining experience and our waiter Joe, and especially enjoyed
the music from the 60's and 70's that was playing. Sorry to learn that the
Columbia, Maryland location will be closing on July 18th. Hope they relocate
elsewhere in Columbia. Thanks and good luck. CDS

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.

Too bad Clyde's of Columbia is closing. It's been an institution for 45 years and had enough $$$ via corporate to survive COVID.

All was good except the server did not stay on top of drinks, or was hard to find to order extra sauce and lemons for calamari and crab dip. He admitted they were short staffed.
