Bests burgers we have ever had. Great service and super friendly people. The whole family left super satisfied with every thing they had. Two thumbs up. Wish I lived closer.

My husband & I both had double cheeseburgers- they were big and very good. We also had the breaded cauliflower, onion rings and fries- all of them were just okay. If it wasn't for the burgers, I would've given it a lower rating. It's a drive-in with carhops and now they also have some picnic tables set up.

Awesome hamburgers/cheeseburgers! We saw them take the balls of hamburger out of the refrig and flatten on the grill. There were a lot of good looking items on the menu but if we end up back in the area we would get the hamburger again.

Great burgers! Enjoyed our lunch here. Nice variety and fair price for our group. Ate at the picnic tables on a sunny day. Beats the usual fast food suspects for sure.

Two of my sons had the big 'C' and said it was great! My daughter and I had the Swiss mushroom burger and they were terrific! Cheese curds and malts were also great! Would recommend stopping here.

Our family stopped in for a late lunch, no expectations. We were pleasantly surprised... Great burger and fries, made fresh in front of you, or they bring it to your car. Will return

Off the wall place. Not anything to look at, but the Bison burgers were delicious as were the fries and onion rings. We parked our RV in the parking lot next door and ordered burgers to go. We ate them in the RV and everyone was pleased with the food. The price was reasonable too.

My husband and I make Clydes Drive In the first place we stop when we stay in the area. My choice is grilled chicken breast in a bun. They toast the bun, just like my mother used to do. My husband get their hamburger basket, which comes with fries and coleslaw. I will admit that I can't resist the fries,... More

You cannot beat a burger from Clyde's! Juicy, fresh, hot off the grill burgers in a classic drive in setting...what's not to love? Clyde's is a must when I'm nearby in the UP.
