We love this place!

This drive in has the most wonderful handmade burgers ever! The milkshakes were amazing and creamy. Fun to go with a group! Eat in your car, inside on stools, or outside on picnic tables!

Clyde's is a must stop. We eat here every visit since I was a child! I love their burgers. Juicy and full of flavor! Bar type seating or drive up. We usually drive up or take out. Nothing to say but great burgers.

We were very excited to stop at Clyde's. We make the trip across the brige "multiple" times a year for both hockey and soccer trips as well as the fact that we also have children going to school downstate. We had heard nothing but great things about Clyde's and could not wait to give it a try. As we pulled... More

wow, just had a cheeseburger with mustard, pickle and onion, fries, and a coke. That first bite told it all...flavorful, juicy and the bun was grilled! I died and went to heaven. This is the place to go for an old fashioned burger.

Clyde's was recommended to us and we stopped in. There is very limited indoor seating and car hops come and wait on you like an old-fashioned drive-in. There are also a few picnic tables. Between us, we got three quarter pounders, fried green beans, french fries and a kids' hot dog (warning! It is split and grilled, which some little... More

Get a burger, fries, and a malt. You won't be disapointed. Old school drive inn/lunch counter serving made to order 1950's style diner food. Service is great, food is prepared right in front of you. Great place to eat on the north side of the bridge in "God's County".

Stopped on our trip to the U P on the recommendation of a friend. There is car hop service, but we chose to eat inside. Seating is limited to stools at the counter, but that is part of the 50;s atmosphere of the place. We had a very brief wait for two seats together. My husband order the Big C... More

Clyde's is probably the best burger joint I have ever ate at. We love the old time atmosphere. The burgers are huge and delicious. The prices are very reasonable for the amount of food you get. There is a wait, but it is understandable. The place is not very big. I think that, that's what gives it more character and... More

Really enjoy the burgers and fries at Clyde's. It is a destination on our many trips to the UP. Fries are crisp, tasty, and homemade. Burgers are moist, big, and delicious. Onion Rings are very good too. Only problem is that it is often crowded.
