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.

“Good ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

If you want a spot with a good aura to catch up with some friends, have a date or a family dinner , Clyde's can cover any of those. I always leave with a nice warm feeling, all courses wonderful, good service and a convenient location.

“Tasteless Food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

This restaurant has to rank as one of the most disappointing meals in a long time. We dined here with friends. It did not matter what we ordered (Pumpkin Ravioli, Grilled Atlantic Swordfish, and Grilled Filet Mignon) everyone at the table was disappointed in the meal. The fish was bland, dry and tasteless. The Ravioli had absolutely no flavour. The steak was ordered rare and arrived extra well done. The service was slow even though the restaurant was nearly empty. They never came back to check on us. Our friend ended up eating his well done steak because no one came around so we can send it back (perhaps this is done on purpose so customers do not send their meal back!)
I really do not know how this restaurant stays in business.

“Good service, close to our hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

This is a inexpensive, comfortable place to get a drink and a good burger, sandwich, or salad. My beef entree salad was excellent and my friends thought their burgers were excellent.

“Need a little more emphasis on the food...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Clyde's is a place I really want to love. The bartenders are great, the servers are friendly, I enjoy the decor in the restaurant, but the food just doesn't inspire me. I wish Clyde's would focus on its food and rev up the flavors. The trout is deep fried in too thick a batter, the salad dressing is bland, etc. I want to love this place - I want to have a local place that is my "go to" on the weekend or during the week...but Clyde's isn't that place yet. C'mon - fix your food! Make a great steak! Have a to-die-for entree list. Please?
