We just wandered by and decided to get lunching then, whammy! Holy moly! First, the portions are massive. The Philly was wider than the person who ordered it! I took a risk, one that I rarely take, and went with a Rueben. Good grief, it was amazing! The rye bread was thick, toasted, and still soft. The corned beef was made in the restaurant and was such a high quality, low fat cut. I was very impressed with the flavors. Even the sauerkraut was fresh and deliciously portioned to complement the flavor of the beef. The best Rueben I’ve had in AGES. The prices are reasonable and the service staff is pleasant and quick. Wow!

Clyde's is apparently an institution in Waynesville, and has been supporting, and supported by, it's town for over 75 years. You walk in and are immediately struck by the diner feel of the place, booths around the edges, a long counter with high top stools, and around one side of the building an expanded area with tables and chairs probably added sometime after the original construction. The hum and rattle of a very busy Diner hits you immediately and although no sign indicated if we should seat ourselves or wait to be seated, one of the scurrying wait staff quickly sorts us out (it is seat yourself, but good luck finding room). The menu is several pages long, and the back page contains the weekend Specials list which for $12 provides you with a meat, 3 or 4 sides in some cases, Parker House Rolls, a Drink and Dessert. The amount of food is staggering for the price paid. The food is not fancy, but it is solid home cooking and tasty, and worth twice what they charge for it. The Service is friendly, fast and efficient, and all three of those things are somehow quite amazing given the frantic pace of the place. If you're a local you will be a regular, and if you're a visitor you'll be made to feel like a local. When in Waynesville go where the locals go and go to Clydes.

We ate dinner at Clyde’s tonight and overall it was good. This is just a diner with daily specials and nothing fancy. I had the meatloaf special which came with three vegetables. My husband had the Flounder. Both were good but not great. The staff is friendly and the food is inexpensive. The blueberry cobbler with vanilla ice cream made the rating go from 3 to 4.

The service was great and friendly. Large portions of hotcakes I could have had half portion. Would be a great place for any meal

This is a diner, but has solid food at good prices. It does get busy as the locals love it, with good reason. Friendly waitstaff, good food, and fun atmosphere make this a favorite!
