The opening of Clyde's of Chevy Chase in 1995 brought more than just a fine dining experience to this growing Washington location. Situated in the heart of a prominent shopping district, this fascinating site celebrates the golden age of travel with steamships, planes and the Orient Express inside the two-level, 500 seat restaurant. Flavorful, fresh ingredients are used to prepare American style cuisine in the Travel Rooms on the main level, or in the casual atmosphere of the downstairs Race Bar and Dining Room.

Try the soap

The soap was wonderful. Although it can be prices, it's a nice place to meet colleagues for drinks or grab a bite to eat after shopping.

I have been a fan of Clyde's for over 20 years--mostly dining at the restaurants in Georgetown, Alexandria, and Tyson's Corner. I visited the Chevy Chase location for the first time last week. Instead of my usual crab cake order, I decided to try the burger and fries, and good standby for comfort food. The meal was very good. The... More

This is a typical Clydes restaurant if there is such a thing. The food is always good with some interesting variations on an American theme. You won't leave hungry and you get good value for the money. The service is always friendly and good. But the real story as with most of their spots is the restaurant itself, the location... More

We came here to celebrate our Professor's Birthday. As soon as we walked in, we were awed by the nice-looking models of cars, planes, ships and trains. In fact, a little model train runs all around the Restaurant on rails built high up near the ceiling. There are luggage racks with suitcases on them, pictures of traveling ladies in vintage... More

It seems that this is a hometown favorite (and there are locations all over that apparently are all different). I found this Clyde's to be fine, but nothing special. The food quality is "ok"; plenty of choices, and the staff is friendly, but the bartender while very friendly was going through the motions with my cocktail. I was served the... More

We've eaten here many times, but this time our waiter, Marty, made it even better. He reminded me of waiters I've had in much more expensive restaurants, and I was very impressed. We both had the Chesapeake Bay Rockfish (on Marty's recommendation) which was delicious. We split a Citrus Salad to start, which was a nice change from a plain... More

This modest local chain has been around for several decades and attracts a very predictable clientel. There are no high gourmet dishes, just the basics done quite well like crab cakes, burgers, salads and fresh fish. Service is aways attentive and atmosphere unique. This theme is model railroading and 50's sports cars. Ample off street parking in a nearby suburb.Monthly... More

The food at Clyde's of Chevy Chase is always dependable. There are many menu choicves, from salads, to burgers, to more adventurous entrees. The transportation-themed decor at this location is wonderful. Highly popular with locals. Good cocktails.
