Description: Situated in one of the most coveted living and commercial areas in the US, this Art Deco-inspired roadhouse stands atop a bluff above the crossroads connecting Washington, DC and Northern Virginia. With four dining rooms, two kitchens and balconies overlooking live palm trees, Clyde's of Tysons Corner sets a new standard for Clyde's. From it's first day in operation, it has drawn a huge crowd of international and residential visitors including: business people and shoppers to nearby families and Wolf Trap audiences. With decor and furnishings that invite guests to dine amidst the glory days of Art Deco, the only thing that might top the varied and extensive menu is the elaborate and sophisticated atmosphere.

“Had dinner twice here, worth the visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012 via mobile

Had a good dinner here twice on business. Clearly the lobster dinner was the best between the filet and lobster and the French onion soup has a lot to be desired....bland but besides that everything was good

“Crab Tower”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Yesterday I had lunch at Clyde's of Tyson's. Ordered the Crab Tower. It was one of the best lunch experiences I've ever had. Super fresh, giant lump crab meat, light and super flavorful. I tol my waiter Jermain how much I loved it and he asked for my email and told me he would have the recipe sent. To my surprise today, executive chef Rebecca Jacks emailed the recipe with instructions and pictures! I was so impressed. When I thanked Ms. Jacks she told me to email her when I make it this weekend if I have any questions! This kind of customer service is rare and it was so much appreciated. All and all - it was truly a fantastic experience. Thank you all... Andrew

“Great Seafood”

Great atmosphere. Had calamari and then crab cakes. Both were excellent. I would highly recommend it.

“This place could use a facelift”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

The general lack of cleanliness at this Clyde's left me a little wanting. The food was average at best. I think the whole place could use a remodel.

“Great food but not family friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

This Clyde's has wonderful food but appears to favor business clientele and young adults over families with young children. We were seated in the very back and I had to ask a manager to get the server to pay attention to us.
