This is a great place to visit if you're a big fan of anything apple or if you're spending some time in Mystic and are looking to take a little side trip. I would allocate about an hour to peruse the general store, enjoy cider and doughnuts and watch the apple press demonstration. Just make sure you use the bathroom... More

Great demo of the steam powered cider press - 11:00 and 1:00 on weekends. Tasted some hard ciders, drank some mulled hot cider and bought a few items in the store which is stocked with everything from hard cider to jams, meal starters and kettle corn.

The people and place were the most unfriendly encounter while in Mystic. Not worth the time or cab fare!!

I loved this experience. Even though it was raining the smell of the apples and the fall leaves made it a fantastic experience! I tried the hard cider and the apple wine. My kids loved the apple donuts. The gift shop is cute and maybe some of the things aren't made on the property, but it is still charming and... More

We went to Clyde's Cider Mill on my birthday weekend . When we got there it was so busy we parked a quarter mile down the road. We enjoyed the autumn day, and the leaves at their best. Music welcomed our arrival. We joined a tour and learned cider mill process history. People were so friendly in line...we met a... More

The smell of apples was so thick when you walk inside and smelled so good it was almost as if you could swallow it. Just kept inhaling the smell was devine. They are so polite and want to help you. They don't just have cider, but apple wines and jams and other goodies. Just all around a great place to... More

I visit Clyde's every year and it never disappoints. The place is quite popular on weekends, so if you are planning to visit on a Saturday or a Sunday, be prepared for lots of people. They do cider pressing on weekends, and this tends to draw in the crowds. The lines can be long but you get through them pretty... More

I have been going to Clyde's since I was a child. The cider has always been flavorful due to the press they use. The addition of hard cider has caused an explosion of popularity. Every weekend in the fall, Clyde's is backed out onto the street with customers. I recommend going during the week. Prices are a little high but... More

My girlfriend and I visited here on Columbus Day weekend. It looks like a great place, but the day we were there it was overrun with people. We had to park way down the road and walk to the mill. The line for cider and donuts was quite long and after waiting 15 minutes and not moving a step we... More
