Clydz has become one of my family's favorite restaurants. First, the martini list is large and original. The menu is fairly eclectic, and includes some unique meats at times (alligator, ostrich, rattlesnake, etc).

It was just okay- food was disappointing. After all the great reviews I read, I really expected something good. The bacon dip was unimpressive, cold and we didn't touch it- no one cared . Lots of better choices

When you first walk into Clydz it looks like a very typical college bar. You walk through the (typically very crowded) bar and you're suddenly in a gorgeous restaurant with white table cloths. The food is delicious and very unique. Items such as kangaroo, rattle snake etc are on the menu and you can easily order a bunch of small... More

We went here for the variety of drinks on the menu as a go to place we frequent. At first all appeared well and service was good. The night continued and some of our family began to leave. They grabbed our server (629 Brian) and contributed to a portion of the bill via credit card. The night continued and BRIAN... More

Really enjoyed some aspects of this meal. Started with drinks at the bar. First time here and there is a real bar where you enter. Bartender (man with beanie) served up a great margarita ($10) but when we ordered a second round we had a different bartender (a woman that we did not see mix the drinks) according to our... More

My wife and I had an excellent dinner at Clyde on a Saturday night with another couple. Street parking is pretty scarce, but there is a pay parking deck around the block adjacent to a supermarket; you will have to park on levels 5 and higher, but there is an elevator and the walk to Clyde is short. We had... More

The bartenders here know their drinks. If you explain what you like, they will not lead you astray. Try the arrancini.

What a wonderful place. Exotic menu even offering kangaroo. The best macaroni and cheese I've ever had in my life with truffle oil. The cocktails are out of this world and very unique. We eat here every time I go to New Brunswick New Jersey
