My husband, adult son and I stopped here based on the the great reviews and, quite frankly, that the parking lot was busy in the mid afternoon. Wrong! The meals were less than ordinary -- with processed, greasy and cheap ingredients. The only part of the meal that any of us enjoyed was the salad, which we all agreed was... More

We went to Clyde's our first night back in Waynesville and enjoyed the atmosphere and not feeling like a tourist. The food was good and the service very friendly.

It's a tradition to hit Clyde's after hitting the orchard. We always look forward to sitting down, having a chance to relax, have a good meal, good service, fair prices, friendly folks, and just enjoy the moment. They don't disappoint.

This place is ALWAYS packed, so we knew it had to be good, and they didn't disappoint! The fried chicken was really good. Very moist and full of flavor. Also the Mac and cheese and fried green tomatoes were really good as well. It's a tiny place, and they're always packed, but it's worth the wait. We'll definitely be back.... More

We were told about this place by some locals and it was spectacular! Stop by when you get hungry. The staff is friendly and the plays are huge!

We traveled past Clyde's several times. On Saturday we asked a couple of locals were we could go to get a good meal and they both suggested Clyde's. So, of course we tried it. Basic good Southern food plus a variety of burgers and sandwiches.

We were traveling on the Blue Ridge Parkway and stopped in Waynesville for the night. After an evening of eating and some drinking, this was a great place to get a big breakfast to start the day. Clydes has been here since 1941 so they must be doing something right. We were promptly delivered the food we ordered and everything... More

We ate here last year and I was anything but impressed. However, I believe in giving second chances and we tried it yesterday and it was quite good. The staff was friendly and the bathroom this time was CLEAN. I think our server's name was McCara and she was very polite and helpful even though it was very very BUSY.... More

Had a delicious lunch today with my friend. I had roast beef, mashed potatoes with gravy, squash casserole, a salad, dinner rolls, and Apple spice cake. Yum! We try to get Lisa every time we go. She always takes very good care of us. :)
