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.

On the way to a weekend training, my 2 buddies and I stopped into Clydes to grab a bite to eat. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Our food order was taken and filled very quickly. I ordered a cheeseburger and chips. Two of the guys ordered the fried chicken special with a choice of 2 sides. Good value... More

We went here for breakfast. Service was great. Food was good, but a little greasy. It was crowded with locals which is always nice. I would recommend Clyde's over just about any other fast food place that serves breakfast.

I remember eating at Clyde's with my grandfather when I was 10 and it's still there. This is my moms favorite restaurant. Ok, meatloaf day is great. It's not fancy, it's not for foodies, but if your looking for a meat and three, or a good basic burger and fries, Clyde's is the place. It's a Waynesville tradition. they do... More

Clyde's has the best Western Omelette ever! I like them cheesy and full of goodies...ham, peppers, and onions. They are country style...hot...fast, huge and a bit greasy...not dry. I also get the shredded hash-browns and order them crispy. My husband like the salsa so he gets it with his omelette. We always look for Bobby as he is friendly and... More
