Everyone really like this place. It's like a little speakeasy. Service was excellent, tried a Gibson and it was outstanding. Loved the atmosphere and the mix of patrons. This was either first or second on everyone's list.

I met an old friend here for lunch. We heard they have great martinis, so we decided to give it a try. We sat in the back room in a booth and it was fine for us. We did each order a different martini and they lived up to the hype. Large and delicious! We had a good lunch, good... More

The food was OK but in summer I prefer to sit in a room with day light or even outside. We were squeezed in a basement , too much tables and no day light.

Great Martini Bar! The bartender was busy but still attentive to our needs. Suggested the Victoria's Secret Martini. No matter what mojito you order, you will enjoy it!

My boyfriend and I started going to Clydz last year after hearing about it though friends. Our favorite drink is the Smoky Donkey by far. It's and acquired taste, but really good. For the food, I really liked the Deviled Eggs and the Thai wings. The scallops, gators in a blanket and nachos, the times I've had them were not... More

Martini's are good. Bartenders make great drinks. Although it was Happy Hour the prices are not that great unless you order house drinks. Premium brands will cost you premium $$$.

This is a great martini bar and has some interesting food. There is a lot of options available for martinis. The service is not that great and the place can get extremely crowded. I often have to wait a long whole before I can get service.

This is my absolute favorite spot downtown New Brunsick was an exceptional gourmet menu and wide variety of martinis - the Lychee martini is the best. Lunch, dinner or late night - the menu options always include wild game and other specialities. It's fine dining in a very relaxed and happening atmosphere. Get seated in a booth behind the bar...

During a difficult time at the Middlesex Courts, lunch was had at Clydz. It was close, service was quick, staff was understanding, and food was good. It was a great place for a breather during court sessions where one could be left to their own thoughts or engage in a discussion without being interrupted. The staff should be highly commended...

The Clydz has a nice atmosphere, bit dark though. Very good and attentive service. Food quality is very good. Very nice selection of cocktails.

Thank christpost
