We went to Clyde Iron for dinner last night. I highly recommend it. The food is good, the prices are reasonable, and it's a gorgeous building.

Attended the DSSO Symphony Soiree and they did an outstanding job in every aspect. Service, food, atmosphere, etc. Clyde Iron Works is a great addition to Duluth!

YUM! Great pizza and the best wings I've had in the area, hands down. The building is beautiful, especially upstairs where you can really appreciate the mural.

I thought "Hot Karl" was on the road with Rand Paul???

Mr Claire said his meatball sandwich was the best he's ever had in Duluth. And he's from Jersey, so he knows his meatballs! I had the wings, they were indeed terrific as was my side salad with the honey dijon dressing that had a kick to it. And Baby Claire had the crab ravioli, she liked. Wine was $6 per glass. We also shared foccacia. We got out of there for like $45 total. And that mural was amazing!

We went there tonight and was very confused on what to do. There was no one hosting and my husband and I wondered around for a bit. All the seating was full upstairs in the bar area and the lower level had open tables, but we thought we had to order through the deli line, which we didn't want to do. We stayed for about 5 minutes, but felt very awkward - a waiter saw our confusion and said a table may open soon, but it didn't appear anyone was close to being done. Unfortunately, we left within 10 minutes and didn't get to taste the yummy food.

We then tried the new G.B. Schnider & Co. in the old Grandma's West Duluth location. WONDERFUL food! I am so happy for this new place. We tried the fried ravioli appetizer and I had the best Ruben I've probably ever had.

HMMMMMM We had a similar experience when we went -- no one hosting and not knowing what the hell was going on. But we went upstairs, found a table and sat down, so all worked out. But they do need to get someone near the entrance to host. That was the only downer I experienced, though.

Same here. We ended up just leaving. Hopefully someone sees this, and pays attention - I'd like to see this venue succeed!

My girlfriend and I stopped in for the first time earlier this week. Unlike Mojo, I was taken aback by a fellow customer who quickly approached us as we ran in from the rain. Asking us if we'd been there before, I remember thinking "Surely there are employees who might be better able to assist you." until I realized that she was indeed a plain-clothes hostess. A simple introduction goes a long way. 

Also, I was dissatisfied with my meal for various reasons, but the management refunded my money and gave me another. And I'm happy to report that my husband later enjoyed every morsel. :)

My wife and I visited 6/26/10. Like others, we were confused by the initial triage. It looked like a deli setup, but a young lady in a "Clyde" t-shirt explained that the ground floor is self-seating, orders are taken at the register, and a server brings out the food. Upstairs is a full service restaurant and bar. I understood our hostess to say I could order beer downstairs or a full bar menu upstairs. I was wrong. I had to walk upstairs and buy a beer separate of my first floor order experience.

I had a steak burger, fries, and salad. My wife had ravioli. My salad came with "field greens," rather than lettuce. There was no 1000 Island Dressing. The burger and fries were very good. 

My wife had to ask for the bread that accompanies pasta orders. 

The tables on the first floor seat 4 or 6 people. They're large, massive, and spaced well apart. 

The mix of food and service made me think "Old Chicago meets Culver's."

I'll go back with my 30 something sons but not my 80 something parents.

Kudos to Clyde's owner, chefs, and wait staff!  Wedding...9/25...Duluth, MN...husband and I looking to see sights and enjoy the ambiance of the town itself.  "Marilyn," senior friend of the owner whose sons shared quality time with him when young, suggested Clyde's.  We experienced it not once but twice!  Food was scrumptious; price was too low to stay there for long!  Desserts were FABULOUS!  The setting...unique and energized!
So glad to see safe areas of cities upgrading existing buildings to reinvent them...this was a winner!  We may never be in Duluth again, but we shall not stop singing praises of the city and Clyde's for a long time!  Kudos!

Is tonight Ladies Night at your favorite bar? Dept. of Human Rights would like to know.

I'm not naming names here, but I know of at least one bar in Duluth that has Ladies Night specials....
