I have visited a number of times over 2 years and Clydz consistently has excellent cocktails. It is a pleasure to watch the barmen expertly put your drink together with such flair and a smile.

We had booked and when we arrived we enter into a crowded bar. Then one waiter came and guide us into a nice quiet restaurant room. The waiter was very helpful for the cocktails and the food. We ordered a cocktail and some meat. As we wanted to taste, he offer us to share some plates. He was very kind.... More

We started with smoked salmon tostones. While the salmon was very nice, we found the tostones somewhere between soft and crispy - not mushy, but.. hard to describe. But no worries, on to included house salads with an excellent house balsamic dressing. For mains, a special monkfish with couscous and neat greens for the lady and for me the venison... More

Clydz is a fantastic spot in New Brunswick. I have been here for both happy hour and dinner and have never been disappointed. Let's start with the libations. They have an EXTENSIVE cocktail menu to the point where the choices are slightly overwhelming however, you literally cannot go wrong with anything you pick off of the drink menu (My favorite...

If you are in New Brunswick, make sure you stop here. They have a huge, huge selection of whiskeys, bourbons, scotch, etc. and also mixed drinks. The wait staff can provide helpful advice on individual drinks or pairings. The menu is very unique, and has preparations that you will not find anywhere else. Again, the staff is very prepared to...

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
