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.

was told by a friend what a great place, turned out not to be so. Very dark inside couldn't even see the wine list. Smelled like smoke even though it's a non smoking place. Bartender inattentive and uninterested so we left.

Great martinis. But that's it. The food is only good to create a base in your stomach so you can drink more martinis. But sometimes all you want is a good drink, and if that's a martini, then this is the place.

My son went to Rutgers and this nearby restaurant had been on his bucket list. He likes meat, I like Martinis. So off we go. He had the Python Raviloi. He loved it. Very tender and the sauce was creamy. He also enjoyed the Bison Hanger Steak. I played it safe with the crab cakes and a unique martini. The... More

Clydz has a very interesting menu and the food is well prepared and presented. It is located by the court house, is cozy with the bar in the front. It can get crowded but it is beyond the wait for the delicious food. Steaks are top notch.

A Throwback Martini Bar and overall great place to hang out of spend time before an event at the State Theater. Bar is well stocked, drinks made exceptionally well and a generous pour for sure. A few steps down from the street and you're there. You won't regret the visit. A new starting place for our crowd before any event... More

This restaurant is known for its game menu. As an appetizer we had alligator andouille sausage in a blanket. It was delicious. As an entree my husband had the game special, rabbit, venison sausage and kangaroo. He found the kangaroo and rabbit on the tough side. I had pork osso bucco. It was great. Dessert was just ok. They have... More
