The service was super quick. My husband opted for vegetable soup, I opted for vegetable plate. I was not impressed with either fried green tomatoes or spiced apples. Basically all I had was half the slaw and macaroni and cheese. The peach cobbler tasted like it was made with leftover rolls.

This is an old country diner that we frequent each trip to NC. I gave the atmosphere a 5 because it's perfect for what it is. The guy running the place is a character and that just adds to the experience. Breakfast is consistently fast and great. You will not find a better value & you'll def leave full.

So old, so country and so good. I had to tend to business in Waynesville this week and scheduled things so that I could have lunch at Clyde's. Last time I was there was a Monday and they were closed. I sat at the counter, alone, on a packed lunch hour and made two new friends. Great service, great atmosphere... More

Southern home-style food in a diner setting. Many deep-fried selections, but also a huge salad with surprisingly good fresh tomatoes.

Saturday was my second trip to Clyde's in a year both times were excellent . Great steak I got the ribeye had a nice flavoring to it. Daughter got the fried chicken and her friend got the boneless chicken wings and said they were excellent. Waitress was the same waitress as a year ago and that doesn't happen often and... More

We stopped in at Clyde's on our way home from Highlands, NC to TN. The food was very canned and average. We were hungry so it hit the spot for the time. We had really wanted Jarrett House in Dillsboro but they were closed for the season. I think this place should send their management person or owner to Spartanburg,... More

Clyde's is a great place to grab a hot meal and feel like you have been at your grandma's for lunch or supper. If you like club sandwiches, Clyde's has the best. No lunch meat in this club, real sliced turkey and ham. The wait staff is friendly and helpful, a great family atmosphere. Sometimes I like to get a... More

I used to love Clyde's. I still like it, but I don't eat there as often as I used to because the tourists have taken it over. Even though it's always really crowded, the food is always good and the service is excellent. The owner's have tried really hard to maintain the home folks vibe and from the other reviews... More

Sorry, I have tried to like this local favorite, but I can't get past the fake potatoes. Who still does that? Just okay in my book.
