Description: 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.

I had a delicious large breaded trout for lunch At the Friendship Hts restaurant. My friend had the large single crab cake that she raved about. My only complaint was the roasted or grilled brussel sprouts were not cooked well enough for me. However, I brought half the trout home and cooked the sprouts a bit more and enjoyed another... More

The Decor and atmosphere is great I felt like a young kid with all the Planes, Ships, Trains...fantastic... When we finally got all together we got our table and sat to dinner.. The menu is... More

Dropped by on 12/30 at 8PM with a family party of three and was promply seated even with a near full house. Clyde's of CC continues to be our Go To place for reliable good food and usually good service. The ribeye, crabcakes, beef salad and good and reasonable wine selection by the glass were all on the mark and... More

Family-friendly with good, hearty menu for kids and adults, like grilled steak salad. Toddlers can split kids meal. Waiter brings extra drink, dessert for kids if asked. Validated parking. Great service.

While I had reviewed this destination 2 years ago, I continue to be amazed at the concern for diners' satisfaction. If a request was not honored, the dish goes back to the kitchen to be corrected. The result is that wait staff, delivery staff and most of all the kitchen staff are all trained to be responsive to the dietary... More

Clyde's of Chevy Chase is one location of a small DC chain of upscale restaurants that have a mostly traditional American menu. It is an attractive place with scads of warm wood and travel-themed paraphernalia amongst the mostly comfortable booths. We ordered a variety of dishes on a Friday night: bacon cheeseburger, chicken liver pate, a bowl of chili, shaved... More

Just a good place to relax with friends and enjoy a leisurely Sunday brunch before a Redskins game. Standard American fare, well prepared, and good service. Easy access to Metro station.

I eat lunch here every other week with three colleagues and never get tired of the food. The menu has great standards, including tasty chili and wonderful crab cakes, and it changes regularly to include local seasonal food.

I have been to this location for over 10 years and always enjoy the atmosphere and service. However, tonight the waiter was rude and careless about our table and he only had three other tables to serve. The manager was not helpful either. I will seriously consider not coming back to this place ever again.
