Stopped in for dinner and was pleased with my meal. I had the salmon which was delicious. The menu had a lot of good options for any kind of diner. The place was clean. The downstairs had more of a bar atmosphere which was great for later in the night. My only issue with this place was the random magician... More

Love the Early Bird Dinners, daily chowder and fresh crab cakes. Clydes is always delicious and a great spot to bring the whole family.

This seems to be a standard favorite haunt for the older, more sedate residents of tony Chevy Chase. The service is excellent and the brunch/ lunch menu has something for everyone. The eggs Benedict could have been warmer and one was overcooked. Validated parking is a plus. I see why my older friend enjoys coming here.

Three friends for lunch, two from out of town. Seated in the Travel Room which is fun - waiter a bit slow to find us and then when asked about the "BLT special" the reply is.."it's just a BLT". Okay, this Clydes is a very nice "Go To" eatery but the menu could use more typical lunch items vs dinner... More

Clyde's is an old Washington standby. It's menu is very diverse -- something for everyone and at every price point. But, it feels a bit like a factory and the menu offerings could use a refresh. It's definitely not the place to go if you are looking for a unique, innovative dining experience. I like the crabcake although it's a... More

The menu has been relatively unchanged for years. Dishes are quite satisfactory—with a classic American orientation--but without real creativity or pizzazz. The bread is served warm, but it soft and wan. Service is generally very good and friendly, and the environment, with a travel theme, is both pleasant and interesting for everyone—from kids to jaded adults. Value is fair but... More

Just had lunch at Clyde's as part of a large party celebrating a recent college graduate. I was impressed with the decor, lots of fine, dark wood paneling, brass and wonderful scale model sport cars and ships. Further, although the restaurant is very large, it is separated in sections so at lest on my visit, the noise level was remarkably... More

Interior is livened by large ship and airplane models (3' for ships, many of them replicas of ocean liners, 4-6' airplanes)and make for fun time wandering around looking at and discussing. This IS a white tablecloth venue, so think eye-catching not kitsch. Excellent menu variety, especially at brunch, prepared well and thoughtfully. Staff are good-natured, attentive, and resourceful. A lovely... More

My family of 4 recently dined at Clyde's while staying at the nearby Embassy Suites, thinking we'd try something different than Cheesecake Factory or other chains. The service and food at Clyde's were simply horrible. The kids meals were reheated, lumpy Kraft mac and cheese, and frozen pizza. Our wine took almost half an hour to arrive, and when it... More
