Clyde's of Gallery place had great food and great service. The room we had the dinner in was absolutely gorgeous. I would have my rehearsal dinner there again in a heartbeat. We were running behind schedule and they were very flexible in dealing with the time delays. If you want to have you RD downtown please check out this place, you won't regret it.

We choose Clyde's for our rehearsal dinner. It was the perfect spot. They gave us our own private room in the back. The space was cozy but we had enough room for both a cocktail hour and seated dinner. It was also beautifully decorated with wood paneling all around the room. Clyde's was extremely easy to work with. The price included small flower centerpieces printed menus, and our own bar and bartender. We received many compliments on the room and the food.

We held our rehearsal dinner in the Piedmont Room at Clyde's and it was perfect! During the planning, they were very responsive and flexible. The quality of food and service that we got for the cost exceeded expectations. The staff was friendly, efficient and really went above and beyond. Just a small example, my grandmother asked for a Guinness and was told it was only at the bar downstairs; within 5 minutes, a waiter appeared with a glass for her. When I realized the shrimp was going faster than I'd thought, I asked for an another tray and it appeared right away. It really was a perfect rehearsal dinner and the party continued with family at the bar downstairs where other friends could meet up. I'm so happy with the whole night .
