To reiterate what the previous posts had to say, I was impressed with what The J Clyde has to offer. Very cool setting, especially if wanting to enjoy a game.

The server was very knowledgeable as to the selection that is offered and turned me on to the Heavy Seas Small Craft Warning. Ended up stocking my fridge with it after having tasted it.

The only food we ordered was the fried dill pickles which are a great appetizer to enjoy while partaking in some beverages. Much better than some freaking Butterfish, which is a terrible mixture with a fine brew!

Given the selection, setting, staff, and service I will be visiting this place again. The location is neat given the fact that there are other bars in the vicinity. (726 characters)

We were able to get in early and found a good seat (and a glass of El Gordo). Our waiter was really attentive; he even found me a great J. Clyde logo glass to purchase. My wife went nuts over her steak and egg. The chicken fingers are terrific. And the beer selection can't be beat. The patio out back was covered and heated since it was winter. I look forward to coming here again and surfing the draft menu. Wish we had a place like this back home. (457 characters)

Great spot for rare and hard to find beers in Birmingham. It is very dark and kinda dirty, but their selection is incredible. The major downside for me is that they have a single seat bathroom and there is always a line. They take reservations, so it can sometimes be hard to find a table to eat at. The food is great, I have never had anything bad there. The service usually is lackluster, but from time to time you get a good server/bartender. Must visit if you are coming to Bham! (483 characters)
