“Excellent food & atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

French onion soup was the best I have had on a rainy Seattleish day. My wife's liver was superb. The atmosphere was subdued and the service good. My petite filet sandwich was really good. Bottom line? Excellent food, service and atmosphere in this semi-upscale restaurant. The fact that it was nearly full on a very rainy day suggests a strong client following.

“Clyde's New Year's Eve Bash”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

I love Clyde's as a restaurant but have to say I was disappointed in the New Year's Eve Bash. There was not even one song from the DJ that was of my generation and not one single slow song to dance with my husband. The group that was in front of the DJ's station were spilling their drinks on the floor and dancing in the puddles on the floor. I feared someone might fall so had my husband go get staff to clean it up. However as soon as it was cleaned up it was a mess again. As soon as the New Year came we left and felt let down about how we had spent the evening.

“Really great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2013

I really enjoyed my meal here. I had a crab cake and French onion soup. The soup was just okay, but the crab cake and potatoes were fantastic. The interior is warm and welcoming. Service was great. I hope to be back.
