You feel like they are just going through the motions. Staff are just shuttling you in and out of the place. The food is fine, nothing special.

Thy had a nice selection of locally sourced appetizers that were very tasty. Our waiter was very good and the food came quickly. One of our dishes was the handmade potato gnocchi with crab... More

We frequent on a monthly basis Tower Oaks, the sister restaurant, which is consistently served good food and provided efficient service. Occasionally, we frequent Clyde's CC. Last night was definitely an off night for the latter. Before drinks were served, the entrees appeared. One of the 2 special hangar steaks was rare rather than medium which upset the dining ambience.... More

As always with kids: arrive early. This is a busy place. But they are fast and accommodating to families. Old fashioned cars and planes, a model train that runs between the kitchen and the dining room, tons of colorful travel posters -- great for I-spy and/or geography trivia while you wait for food.

I haven't visited this place in a couple of years and was surprised that the place was not as crowded as it has been in times past. We were particularly surprised that we were able to sit in the main restaurant, and that the lower level restaurant wasn't even open! The place looked the same, the menu hadn't changed significantly,... More

A friend of mine and I concluded some business in Chevy Chase about lunch time and stopped in at Clydes. Both of us were familiar with the restaurants, but had not been in some time and we were pleased with how well they have faired. We started with a sangria and a beer and both were delicious We split a... More

While the service was fast and attentive - no wait for a table or water - and the bread came quite quickly, the food was only ok. Everyone at my table orders off the grill menu. The server was more then willing to substitute the side of fries for a salad or something else. My two table mates who got... More

Lots of choices for dinner and the food is reliable....comes from being a chain I guess. The servers were attentive and food delivered quickly. All very tasty meals.

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.
