The Big "C" Burger - 3/4 pound with cheese & everything aka the kitchen slider as we call it. Make sure when you order your burgers that you tell them what you want on it or you will get just meat, lettuce & tomato. Fabulous...lunch! Burger, fries, chocolate milkshake & a pop. Price range per person averages $20. ✅ Make sure to tip well. They work their butts off! A true drive-in restaurant. Rack sits on your window just like the 'ol days.More

This is a good old fashioned drive up burger joint. Prices are reasonable and it’s a hand pressed patty. Not a bad choice. If this helped make your decision, give me a helpful vote

Yuck yuck yuck. 5 year Olds doing reviews now. Not everyone enjoys everything. Clyde's is one of the last great drive ins left. But then again how would you know about that. They have been doing great business for over 70 years you know your...grandparents age. Tell your parents that there is an overpriced garbage just down the highway for the next time!More

We visited Clyde’s for dinner after a long walk/full day on Mackinac Island. Old fashioned, order from your car burger place. Get one with the works. Burgers are fresh and juicy and YUM! We also had fried cauliflower, fried mushrooms and onion rings. All great!...Our best eats in St. Ignace so far.More

Yuch-yuch-yuch. Bad service, food and everything. Slowest service ever. Chilidog was made wrong and tasted terrible. Half the food was cold.

When we arrived, we found one remaining drive in spot. The server announced that we would wait 45 minutes “if we stayed”. Given the reviews, we were going to wait for sure. We asked what the best thing on the menu was and she confirmed...the burgers. We ordered the cheeseburgers/fries, as well as a grilled cheese, a whitefish sandwich, and breaded cauliflower. Server was nice, atmosphere is what we came for (visited on a Sunday), and decor was fun also. Unfortunately an average cheeseburger. Breaded cauliflower was the highlight.More

Best burgers around. Prices are up from years past, but not unreasonable. Service is always great. Sometimes we just drive to Clyde's for the great burgers.

Right next to a McDonald's. A 10-15 minute longer wait, well worth every minute. Cooked to order burger. It was fantastic. Service was good considering I was there near closing. One of the best burgers ever.

This place was packed with people parked for carhop service, take out, dine-in, and phone orders. These are some of the hardest-working individuals in the restaurant business. My hubby had the 3/4 pound Big C colossal hamburger. I tried an olive burger and cheese curds....The service and food were top-notch. We took a large cherry malt home with us and we are currently fighting over it because it's that good.More

First things first, CASH ONLY! I've been experiencing Clyde's since I was a child (so 30+ years now). This place is an absolute staple for a meal once you cross the Mighty Mac. It's an old-timey drive in, which is just a fantastic feel when...you first enter the UP - where you go to slow down a little. The food is great! I've never had a bad lunch or dinner here! Prices are decent, which is an added bonus. If it's busy, the wait is a little long but again that keeps with the 'time to slow down now' feel that most are going for in their vacation. I'm excited to now be able to share the Clyde's experience with my own children and am absolutely tickled that the kids meals are still served in cars! (Many great memories there!) Overall, Clyde's is an experience that you need to experience at least once (and you will probably be back for more)!More

I think this place is a tradition for people traveling to the UP. It was busy and the food was average. I am glad we tried it but not a place we would go again. I had a Bison burger and it was dry. We...ate at Bridge View Park so we had the food to go.More
