The J. Clyde Restaurant Review

: Alabama has been celebrating ever since the governor signed the Gourmet Beer Bill into law in 2008, and there’s no better place to honor it than at The J. Clyde. The owners, brother and sister Jerry and Susan Hartley, have long supported Free the Hops in Alabama and are dedicated beer enthusiasts. During happy hour, enjoy a Bavarian roast beef sandwich with sweet potato fries or a house-made soup du jour with cornbread. The dinner menu includes starters such as seafood ravioli in a roasted red pepper cream sauce, beef carpaccio, or fried green tomatoes with house-made rémoulade. If you’re still hungry, try the steak au poivre with port wine reduction and asparagus or a Bavarian sausage plate with smashed potatoes, sautéed cabbage and balsamic marinated vegetables. Late night pub menu fare includes steak and eggs, pizzas, sandwiches and burgers, including a J. Clyde burger, topped with fried green tomato. On High Gravity Mondays, the first two high gravity beers are $5 each. And there’s often a cask or firkin of something new arriving, which starts the celebration again.

Without a doubt, the J Clyde in Birmingham, AL is the worst

The service was horrible. Spilled drinks all over our table & our guest. We had to ASK for a cloth to clean the table & our friend had no choice except to wear wet clothes. The server never apologized or assisted us in any way. The food was mediocre. Our first visit to J Clyde and it is our last one as well.
