Didn't know what to expect, as Clyde's is a small building with what appears to be a large, unmarked parking lot. Saw reviews on Trip Advisor and decided to try it. Food was fabulous & quick! You figure out parking quickly as you just have to follow others. You can easily see the ships entering or leaving the Locks which... More

Have eaten here before. If you want a great burger, this is the place to stop. Eat in your car or inside. Have a meal and watch the ferry travel to Sugar Island and the freighters glide by. Eat the Big "C" Burger and you can skip a few meals. Bummer, stopped here and they were closed for the season.... More

Loved this place. It was a spur of the moment . Nice little place by the water. Never had to leave my car and the girls came right out and took our order. Clyde's burger was one of the best that I tasted. Definitely would go back.

Not a big menu but the price and view are hard to beat. You can sit in your vehicle and be served or sit inside or out on a picnic table and watch the ferry. We had the walleye and it was a very big portion.

The hotel front desk said this was the best burger in Sault Ste Marie, so we headed over. The place was packed by locals so we thought it was a great sign. Got cheeseburgers, malts and onion rings to go so we could walk right next door and eat in the park on the island and watch the boats. Pretty... More

When we visit the Soo, we make sure to stop at Clyde's. Our family of four always gets burgers, fries, and shakes. My favorite burger is the mushroom and Swiss, but all their burgers are delicious. We only order two fries to split between the four of us because they are so large. Although they will set a tray on... More

Great burgers, great cauliflower tots and a prime spot next to a park where you can watch the freighters go past.
