What a great place to dine at. The food was excellent, large portions and a great price tag. You can stay in your car, as there is a car hop to come to you. They've been there for many years. It gives you that nostalgia feel.

Loved the burgers at this wonderful old diner. Each patty is formed by hand and made to order. I enjoyed my seat watching all the action at the grill. Wow, hats off to the cook as he kept it together and made everyones burger just like they ordered it! The place was busy! People waiting to dine in, carry outs,... More

My husband and I stopped for dinner after our drive up from the lower peninsula of Michigan. I had a junior Clyde's burger, cooked to my request, medium rare and topped with fresh onion and lettuce with only lets up. I do not like mustard and this is the only place that does not make a mistake and add it!... More

Clyde's have the best cheeseburgers around. Great curb service. They have all the typical drive-in food, cheese curds, burgers, fries, shakes. All very good!

Based on other reviews, we went to Clyde’s Drive-In for carry-out. Probably not the best choice. I ordered the specialty of the house, the Big C burger. Since I wasn’t up for ¾ pound of meat, I opted for the “lighter” ½ pound version with “the works”. Apparently “the works” is pickle, relish and ketchup. The burgers were so loosely... More

Food was EXCELLENT! Get a burger, it's what they are known for. We had 4 kids with us and the waitress was AWESOME! She brought us the car meals and hid the gummy treats under the hoods of the car so we could give them to the kids after they ate. Zucchini fries were also fantastic. This food and service... More

Me and my family love going to Clyde's, all year round. They have the best food, shakes, and service around. We have been going here for years and are never disappointed. We also love the atmosphere and all the employees. I highly suggest stopping there if you're in or near Manistique, well worth it! :)
