This is a place that retains the old British/European feel. Somewhat dark with music playing the in background. Comfortable seating that welcomes you to stay.

Their alcoholic beverage drinks were very good with the correct amount of alcohol beverage included. Wife and I ended up eating their three times. Their salads, that are included in the meal, were very good. They have a turkey club that we ordered three times, with one time where we shared with a cup of soup. I had their hamburger twice and each time cooked perfectly and had a meat with flavor. I would recommend Clives for a quick meal or a time to relax with a drink.

Clive’s has received so many accolades and awards the list would be too long for a review. The staff is awesome. The drinks are phenomenal. The atmosphere is classy. We knew that from our last trip.

We tried Clive’s poutine for the first time, this visit. Their classic poutine is, by far, the best we’ve ever tasted. The shoe string fries were perfect. They were crisp on the outside and creamy on the inside. And the fries stood up well to the wetness of the gravy. Part of the reason may have been how quickly I ate the whole bowl. The gravy was spot-on.

My husband’s poutine was Italian style with Bolognese. His was delicious, as well.

Clive’s offers four different poutine variations: Classic, Italian, Pacific and Southern. The Pacific has tuna. The Southern has BBQ pork. We will be back to sample the Pacific and Southern. Although tuna in poutine doesn’t sound good to me, I’m sure Clive’s chef will make me a believer.

Visiting friends suggested that we meet here for a drink before dinner. The plan was to have a drink and then head out somewhere more interesting. Well we never left.
We were there early when the room was quite quiet. As it filled up we began to see such interesting food, and of course we were enjoying our drinks. So the group of us stayed, enjoyed a cheese platter and more, indulged in some of the excellent scotches, beers and wines.
Its a great place with enough space for conversation and the kind of drinks and food that make you want to stay.
Next step is to take my daughter there for happy hour.

Cocktails are amazing & even better as is happy hour & only $8, large beer $5!
Lovely hickory chips served free too.
Nice decor and tables are spaced out so have privacy if wanted
