Speedy Service

Decided to go here on a busy Saturday morning with family and friends. Surprisingly we got seated as soon as we walked in the door. After ordering our food we had our utensils in our hand within 10 min.... Clydes is definitely worth the wait and will eat here again when I return back to waynesville.

But seriously though. The food was good. It certainly wasn't the best I have ever had. For a family owned restaurant in a small town, the service was a bit unusual. I ordered a Philly and asked for only steak, cheese, lettuce and mayo. Why? Because that is what I like on my Philly. I don't care if it doesn't... More

We gave this place another try after being disappointed the first time. It took over 45 mins to receive our food! The waitress was the rudest waitress we have ever had anywhere! The owner was not far behind. While expressing our situation he was rude, and like the waitress he had very short sarcastic comebacks! The food had no flavor... More

Stopped here for lunch last week and the diner did not disappoint. For $10 you get these enormous salads with more stuff than you can eat (honestly, these can be split quite easily). My Chef's salad had a ton of stuff and the home made dressing was really great. Definitely stop here for relatively "cheap" eats and plenty of food.

We've eaten at Clyde's on numerous occasions and always had great food, especially the fried chicken. This time I had white meat and my husband dark. His thigh and drumstick were very small, not hot or crispy. My breast and wing were also quite small, dry and not hot or crispy. The salad and dressing were wonderful. Our waitress was... More

If you go to Clydes, either come with an appetite or plan on a meal for later. We had appetizer and 2 desserts with our meal and left paying $32.00. I couldn't believe it. It's small but they're fast and we've always gotten a seat and excellent service without waiting. Always a return location,

Have frequented Clyde's for many years. One of the few original family owned and operated restaurants in town.
