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.

I was wowed by the beautiful room, filled with Hunt Slonem original oils. Simply stunning. We were at a safe distance from other diners, which was comforting.

ALL the food looked and tasted delicious.

The only disappointment was the slow service. It seemed to take too long at every step of the way. We received water before glasses, and had to wait (too long) for those glasses to be delivered... we received food before silverware and napkins, and that had to be requested... and waited for. Long after we finished our meal we were asked about dessert, and waited (too long) for the menus to be delivered. Given that there were only three occupied tables in the dining room, I was frustrated.

You never know what is going on behind the scenes, but the people seated minutes after our group of four were long gone by the time we were served our desserts.

I am looking forward to returning. If I happen to be somewhat rushed (as I often am during the work-day), I will let the server know ahead of time. Highly recommend ALL the desserts. Being a fan of bread pudding, I can definitely recommend The Hamilton.

The food was amazing and everything was well seasoned. I didn’t know it was a New Orleans styled menu. It was good would recommend for a date night.

Order app and never revived it. Once we told the staff she told us it will be rushed out. Still did not get it, she told us, she’s not gonna charge us since we never got it thank goodness for that I guess they were going to charge us even if we didn’t get the food worst service ever

Had two wonderful meals on a weekend trip. One for dine in and one for takeout. Service was excellent on both occasions and food was tremendously delicious. We had steaks, salads, pasta and it was great. Will definitely come back when we are in town again.

I ordered three meals to go and unfortunately they forgot my food in the bags. Which I paid over $200 in service. Not a go night returning home and my mom didn’t have her meal in the bag.

I understand the Covid considerations, and appreicate them, but the waiters need to get a little closer to the tables when one is order.
Otherwise, fine service and food.

We are from out of state and researched restaurant to eat at... The Hamilton was the second on the list and had 4.5 stars and well... it did not disappoint! We loved all the food we ordered. It my favorite was the Brussels Sprouts! Best ones I have ever had!

Very slow service, though there were hardly any customers.

Expensive food and lovely decor, but the music was 1960s and 1970s pop, including Fat-Bottomed Girls. The song isn’t too bad by itself, but it is when you’re trying to bring your family out to a nice meal on vacation.

Sushi was pretty awful (we tried two and disliked both). Seaweed salad was fine. Tempura shrimp was dull. Rice was clumpy. Lobster shepherd’s pie was good.

We waited half an hour for our check. We finally decided to have dessert since we were just sitting there. We grabbed an employee and asked if we could order dessert. He said yes and walked off. We thought he went to get our server, but neither he nor our server ever returned. We finally called the restaurant to get our check. They said a manager would bring it to us and apologize, but a regular server brought it without an apology (and it wasn’t our server). We waited another 10 minutes, then left.

We felt like we wasted our money on subpar food and bad service.
