Clyde's at Mark Center
Delicious BurgersAlways reliable for their burgers -- juicy, done as ordered, and tasting of the fire. Great fries too. Friendly, diligent service by Lee again.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMReasonably priced super dinnerDinner was incredibly good and so was the service. In comparrison to other restaurants, this place is a steal.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Neighborhood SpotThis was my first time at Clydes and my experience was superb! I love the paprika Fries! Delish!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Desserts Are ExceptionalBe sure to leave room for dessert. Clyde's seasonal offerings, such as strawberry short cake and blueberry cobbler, are wonderful.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMService Is OutstandingThe food is very good although the cake in the strawberry shortcake was like an oversized biscuit with the same consistency as a biscuit. That made me consider downgrading Food to three stars but the rest of the dishes were four so that's what they get. But, don't try the "strawberry biscuit." The service is what stands out here: attentive, professional, caring.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe BestI'm such a huge fan of Clydes!! The food and service is phenominal.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to dine at!!I went with a group of friends for dinner before our prom. The food was delicious! I had the ravioli and it was great! I recommend this place for a special occasion or just to eat dinner in a classy way. Two thumbs up!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOnly thing we didn't likeOnly thing we didn't like was we thought the calamari was a little greasy but rest of food & service was excellant6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFood (Meh)--Service GreatClyde's is great for being open later -- perfect for an after-event meal. This time results were a bit disappointing. The squid in the appetizer was a bit chewy as if frozen and pre-cooked then fried. Pull-pork sandwich was a bit bland until you used the sauce. "Jumbo lump" crabcake was smallish and had perhaps two bits of jumbo lump and the rest was (I think) crabmeat shreds leaving a mushy feel that might as well have been filler. A so-so evening was saved by our server, Lee, who guided us through a mini-seminar on the craft beers on offer. Some real finds! Made the experience memorable after all in a way the food this time did not.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect TimingReservations for 1130 on a holiday. Quiet dining, about the only time I remember that the place is not packed. Service was excellent and food was daring. We had the house wine which was very good and a starter that was pretty good. We ordered their Crab Cakes which they have decided to spice up a little. My wife enjoyed them but I really prefer their old presentation for CC. I like spice but this seemed to over power the crab. Single cake was small and surprisingly heavily augmented. Different experience for me, again only my opinion but a step back from one of their claims to fame!5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBest experience we have hadBest experience we have had at this Clyde's location!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGood foodWent for our 5 yr anniversary and was suprised with the cake at the end of our dinner (nice touch). Dinner was wonderful but there were alot of children dinning. Not as quiet as I was hoping for.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMclyde's is my favoriteGreat restaurant and the Clydes at Mark Center is very convenient for me. Service and food usually very good. I go with friends probably at least once a month. Parking can be a problem at times.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat family restaurant...goodGreat family restaurant...good food and nice ambiance.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMClyde's very rarely disappointsClyde's very rarely disappoints when it comes to the food. The food is a very good value for the prices the restaurant charges. Service can be hit or miss though. Tonight the service was excellent until we had to wait over ten minutes to get our check. Otherwise, the evening was very enjoyable especially the halibut special!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA great dining experience!A friend and I ate lunch there on May 11, 2013, and it was great. The highlight was our server, Brandon. Nice guy!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMReal FriendlyWe come here a lot over the past couple of years. Most of the time everything is great, but like most restaurants sometimes it just seem not as good as the last time. But in this case Clyde's at Mark Center is different. The front of the house staff is wonderful, very friendly and will try to make the experience enjoyable . The waitstaff are very familiar with the menu. Service is very good most of the time. The menu is nice. Some of the portions are OK, while others are much better. Over-all this is a very nice place to come to.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a lovely birthday lunchHad a lovely birthday lunch there with my family, food was good, service was great. No complaints!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Meal to End a Perfect DayWe enjoyed an early dinner at Clyde's on Saturday after a day-long outdoor picnic along the Potomac. We were shown directly to our table when we arrived. Our server, Wally, was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. We started with two rounds from the raw bar -- a half-dozen oysters first, which were so good we ordered shrimp cocktail with four jumbo shrimp -- all very fresh and delicious. We also ordered half-portions of the caesar and wedge salads. Their special was a Kansas City Strip -- I was reluctant because I prefer ribeye -- but, man, was I glad I tried the special. The strip was so tender and delicious, I gnawed the bone! My friend loved the scallops entrée. We took cheesecake home with us. All delicious!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was amazing. Very flavorful.Food was amazing. Very flavorful. Loved the ambience each room had. We went for a special night out, just my husband and myself, but know our 3 year old and 8 month old would love it too! You can definitely end up spending some money, though, but we had drinks, appetizer, and dessert, so that starts to add up.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMClyde's at Mark Center isClyde's at Mark Center is the ideal location for a business lunch or a hail and farewell luncheon. Mike was gracious and welcoming as the Maitre'd and we were seated promptly. Our server, Haley, was fantastic. She told us about the specals and gave us plenty of time to chat before ordering. Our food was excellent. Haley had perfect timing with her visits to our table and always ensured our drinks were filled. Our luncheon at Clyde's at Mark Center was to thank and say farewell to one of the members of our business unit Thanks to the outstanding staff of Clyde's, it was a wonderful event!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMNeighborhood FavoriteWe love the decor -- one room is nautical, with sailboat models; another is like a rustic mountain lodge. The menu is varied and provides excellent choices for all tastes. the restaurant offers consistently fresh and tasty oysters. This is a consistent favorite.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAs usual, great food, accommodatingAs usual, great food, accommodating service, and pleasant ambience.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday dinnerThis was my 3rd time at Clyde's and I have had a wonderful experience each time! I took my mother, uncle and grandfather here for the first time this Saturday and they loved it as well. The waiter was awesome (can't remember his name, but he had big holes in his ear for earrings). He was very attentive and answered all of our questions. I told him it was my grandfathers birthday and he brought out a treat for him. It was great!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to eatSalmon selection was excellent, but the meat lasagna was a little bland.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe arrived for our 11:00 amWe arrived for our 11:00 am reservation for our 39th wedding anniversary luncheon. The staff was cheery and ready to welcome us. Everything was superb. We were in a trance about being married for 39 wonderful years and everyone made the scene continue as beautiful. We were seated in the lake room which was perfect. Our time in your resturant made the day for us. We will be back!
Clem and Sandy4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMClyde's is a nice neighborhoodClyde's is a nice neighborhood restaurant. Our food was very good and was received timely. However, I felt that the waitress was a bit too hurried in taking our orders, providing us our food and sending the check. The wait staff appeared to be a young crowd and could use some customer service training. Because of the ambiance and the taste of the food, I will visit again.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my first time atThis was my first time at Clyde's. My husband has dined at this location while on business previously. I liked the lovely nautical decor, the hostess was welcoming, and the atmosphere was pleaseant. We had the crabcakes and they were very good. Our son, 6 years old, had chicken and he ate it all. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant, the menu has great non-trational options. Lastly, I marked the restauant down in the service area because our waitress, who had a delightful carribbean accent was not firendly or attentive inatially. She eventually relaxed, but she was absolutely distracted by her personal interactions with a group behind us. We did observe another waiter who was very courteous and attentive to his guess however.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was very good but serviceFood was very good but service was mediocre. Had to wait quite some time for food and waiter did nothing to investigate or keep us apprised of any delays. This is not the service usually provided at Clyde's so hopefully this was just one bad waiter.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMA gem in Alexandria we'll visit agaWe went here for the first time on Easter. Food was delicious. Service was excellent. There was some noisiness from a couple of neighboring tables--people talking really loudly-that was somewhat disturbing. Not sure if they left or were asked to quiet down a bit, but the loud conversations didn't last so long as to ruin the whole meal. We had a nice meal and will definitely go back again.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMI am a regular customer atI am a regular customer at Clyde's because it delivers in all aspects for an enjoyable and tasty dining experience. I especially appreciate their coffee cake instead of bread. Overall I will continue going to Clyde's.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMUsually the waitstaff is veryUsually the waitstaff is very good and professional, but if the restaurant is too busy, your waiter tends to forget about you...and a1 hour dinner can easily become a 2 hour dinner.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always have a wonderfulWe always have a wonderful meal at Clyde's and would recommend it to anyone.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMA Very Nice Holiday MealOur family of three enjoyed Easter Dinner at Clyde's at Mark Center. It's one of our favorite restaurants in the area, and we're glad to have it so near our home. We all had the Prime Rib, and each one was cooked to exactly the temperature that was ordered. A cup of the Parsnip Soup was outstanding as a starter. We requested a table, since one of our party is physically unable to slide into a booth. Clyde's called the day before and said we'd most likely be in the bar area, which was where we ended up. To my surprise, it was very pleasant. I've now eaten a meal in every room at Clyde's at Mark Center, and the bar may have been my favorite because of the lighting. We repaired to the "Nantucket Patio" for after-dinner drinks.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've started to make Clyde'sWe've started to make Clyde's our traditional restaurant choice for the Easter and Thanksgiving holiday. We're always seated quickly, food is good with a nice selection of choices for your meal and the wait staff is always attentive. We are never disappointed when choosing Clyde's.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I went to ClydesMy wife and I went to Clydes at Mark Center for our anniversary celebration and we were pleased with the experience. We had been to this Clydes a number of times and it is our favorite place for "fancy" nights out. The food was great as usual but we were a bit surprised at the appetizer that we ordered. We had the Pork Belly Sliders, and the mini sandwiches were so spicy that we could not taste the pork belly in the sandwiches.
The rest of the meal was perfect, my wife had the rockfish special and I had the meatloaf. We recommend Clyde's at Mark Center highly for excellent food at very reasonable prices and great service!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGo for the half price rawGo for the half price raw oyster special and stay for dinner. With six varieties of oysters four of us each ordered a mixed dozen - and we weren't disappointed - shades of excellence. Two of us followed with the Rockfish special and two enjoyed the scallops - no complaints there either, in fact - we were all delighted with our entree and the style of preparation. Clyde's does it right - service, wine list, specialty drinks and the ability to have a discussion with dinner - perfect!!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMClydes is always reliableClydes is always reliable and the food is fairly priced.
