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.

“Great food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We've eaten at this and the other Clyde's in the area many times. All have very good food at a reasonable price, with very good service. It is very confusing to get to, it's in the middle of the intersection of 3 major highways, so allow extra time. The decor is very attractive but hasn't had a major update in a long time. Clyde's is a good choice if you're spending the day at Tysons but don't want to eat in the mall; probably easier to get a table here than at one of the hot spots in the malls.

“GACARS”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

This restaurant has a good reputation but I was dissapointed. I must say the service was good and the ambiance also but there is where my good points end. The steak I ordered was soft enough but there was no flavor to it. Most of the others in our group of 10 felt the same way.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Clyde's has a very appealing from the street In side was a little jumbled and had to walk through the bar to get to the dinner area. The bar was very busy with a large group. The service was OK only had one server so drinks and food was a little delayed coming out. I had the fish and chips. There was no real flavor to the meal. The tartar sauce was just a bad. The French fry's were under the fish and by the time I got the meal the fry's had soaked up the grease from the fish so they were soggy. I'm sure I would not order that again.

“Some Good, Some not so good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

Our group of 6 dined at Clyde's on a recent Sunday evening. The restaurant was not busy at all, yet service was inconsistent. We ordered a round of cocktails which took about 15 minutes to be delivered. The half priced oysters were enjoyed by all. The lobster special was very good too, but some of the entrees were less than exciting..Brisket was dry and disappointing and the grilled bratwurst was just so so. The pumpkin raviolis were very good with a nice light cream sauce. The crab tower was also a winner. A mixed dining experience overall.

“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
