Restaurant Review

Clydz is a popular hang out for the 21+ Rutgers crowd and professional business people who enjoy a vibrant happy hour with large drink portions, especially the martini's. After midnight on a Friday or Saturday, the crowd turns younger.

Located in the heart of New Brunswick’s business district, across the street from the Middlesex County Courthouse and two blocks from the State Theatre, this is a good place for a nightcap after the show. It's also a good place to meet up with friends for drinks and dinner.

Unless you are a wild game food enthusiastic, (the food is barely above average) the reason you come here is for the bar scene ---- it is the featured event at Clydz ---- crowded, loud, with indie, folk and alternative rock music.

The trendy, vibrant bar area is enhanced by soft lighting and fish tanks with a fireplace giving off vibes of the dark prohibition era, speak easy ambience.

Access to the main dining area is through the packed bar.

The menu has many wild game selections including kangaroo, rattlesnake, and venison as well as traditional favorites such as filet mignon, duck, grilled sandwiches, burgers, pasta, seafood, chicken and vegetarian entrees.

Clydz popular Happy Hour at the bar runs from Monday through Friday, 4pm-7pm.with 1/2 price on select drinks and discounted cocktails. Appetizer specials are also served.

Not recommended for children
