    Everyone in my group loved their food. I had the roast lamb and it was perfect. Cocktails were good too- the mojito was great. A friend and I were getting together with a childhood friend we hadn't seen in more than 30 years. So conversation was important. Unfortunately, two large parties were seated on both sides of us and it got really loud. Service suffered too after those groups came in.

    I took my two young daughters to Clyde's for Easter Brunch. We had a noon reservation that I made online through Open Table, and were seated immediately. The back room is bright, sunny and quiet compared to the rest of the restaurant which was quite busy. The girls enjoyed the sourdough french toast, Belgian waffle and sausages. I had the deviled eggs (YUM!) and eggs Chesapeake with lump crabmeat. Great food, great service and even a visit from the Easter Bunny! Will definitely return.

    Spent a while trying to determine the theme of this Clyde's. Strange for a family restaurant to have nude paintings on every wall, and the fact that we went on Easter and the Easter Bunny was there just added to the juxtaposition. When we asked our waiter what the theme was, he said "Uh, I don't know. Naked paintings?" Unfortunately, he seemed to know even less about waiting on tables. We were left for long stretches, and once we had ordered our food, we did not see him again until it was time to hunt the check down. No drink refills were offered. A quick check would have given us the opportunity to complain about the mutton-like hanger steak. This visit was really inconsistent with what I've come to expect from the chain.

    We had a fine Clyde's experience except that the special of the month, a fried catfish meal, was bland, boring, and tasteless unless you like ham juice and kale. The portion was incredibly small also. And the thickness of the breading greatly exceeded expectations and what it appeared to be on the poster advertsing it at the front door.

    With so many better options in Tyson's corner, don't waste your time with this place: location is very hard to get to, service is poor, and the food is 'ok'. In fact, other Clyde's in the DC metro area are better than this one.

    We took the family to celebrate a couple Birthdays. All had a great time and really enjoyed their dinners-flounder, rockfish, salmon, crab cakes and fish and chips. Appetizers of crab dip and calamari likewise were delicious. The complimentary Birthday choclate cake were excellent as well the orders of sundaes and chocolate mousse. Service also was great--made for a very enjoyable celebration enjoyed by all!!!!

    If you are looking for a place for lunch in the Tyson's area that has good ambience then Clydes is a good choice. The atrium seating with the murals is kind of fun and curio for out of town visitors. There really isn't anything bad to say about the food - but I can't really give it more than a good.

    Sunday evening wasn't busy, but our party of seven seemed to overwhelm what wait staff was assigned to us. Special orders don't upset if they're ignored, so leave the onions on the salad. Food comes from the kitchen like so many clowns coming out of a Volkswagon beetle. Here why don't you take the soup! Perfect service for a zombie movie scene.

    we had great time arranging a group of 27 parents and teenagers when visiting the area for a soccer tournament. Food and drinks were great but the waitress kind of ruined it with the checks as she left us hanging for 50+ minutes and we'd to ask 3 times to get checks. So food and drinks and atmosphere were good but defo ask for the check to be delivered or you'll just be left alone. Also the address is DEAD WRONG on the website. CALL for directions or there's no way you'll find it. Scary wrong too as the traffic in that area is KILLER and the restaurant is not able to be found without really good directions as it's on a service road that overlooks the highway. Go, but just caveat emptor on the only 2 issues mentioned above

    We enjoy dining at Clyde's for special occasions and as a neighborhood eatery. On the evening of the Oscars, we had outstanding service, in their quiet Bird Room but were disappointed with the food. Our Prince Edward oysters were delicious, my Rockfish special was very good but the potatoes were cold and felt uncooked. My wife's lamb shank was cool but she didn't wish to return it to the kitchen as she wanted to see the Oscars. This was just an off night at Clyde's for us as we usually have a lovely experience.

    Went for brunch. Service was okay but have had better, food was good but nothing special. Décor needs an updating/overhaul. Restaurant does show its age (perhaps 1960s). By its location, it appears that commercial/office developers just built around it. Perhaps the parcel should have been sold during that Tyson's Corner building boom.

    Went to Clyde's on Sunday evening on the way back from the city. Clyde's is almost a historical landmark in Tysons Corner. It has good decore, ambience, service and food. I definetly recommend. The only thing that I noticed, now that I bring my 5 year old along, is that one back wall mural is a bit suggestive (so just a warning for parents of young children), but other than that....great place for group and family dining.

    This visit to Clyde's was disappointing for several reasons: - In my open table reservation, I asked for a corner table, but instead was seated immediately adjacent to another table for two making it impossible to have a private conversation with my wife. - The mussels we ordered to share were sandy, some with a little others with so much that they were not edible. - On the other hand, the lamb shank and the salmon salad were excellent - Service was slow and unresponsive, probably due to the restaurant being full, yet understaffed. For instance, following the mussels we asked for wet naps. When they did not arrive for 10 minutes, we asked another waiter who brought them promptly.

    This Clyde's is a neighborhood favorite because of the 1/2 price oyster bar Sun-Fri, the friendly service, consistent food, and the changing menu that keeps a few favorites. I booked a surprise small dinner (8) here for my husband's birthday and they did a wonderful job making sure we were happy. The service was great, we never felt they wanted to turn the table although we were there for 3+ hours, and the food was very good. Clyde's kept the surprise when we arrived, drinks were excellent, and the eight of us were very happy with the evening. My husband was surprised and thrilled with the nice evening.

    It was our first time dining here, though we love Old Ebbit. We loved the food, from raw oysters to steak to pear crisp. It was just the service I had a problem with. Our server was very monotonous, not unlike Lurch from Addams Family, and inattentive/uninterested. We watched every table around us get served bread and I even made eye contact with the guy serving it and he skipped us. The same thing happened when the manager (or some important staff member) went around the tables asking if everyone was having a nice time (it is worth mentioning she skipped us an and Indian couple, the only non-white people in the room).

    We took our 4 children to dinner at Clyde's before we were heading downtown to the theater. The menu is varied and has something for everyone. We were seated close to the roaring fireplace which was very cozy. The restaurant was quiet and it made for a very relaxing dinner. Everyone enjoyed their entrees as well. Its a good place to bring your kids, although the room we were in has a very large mural of an ancient Roman (or Greek) scenery of people and animals (people are naked). Only one of my kids really noticed it .. but if you preferred your kids to not see that, there is another side of the restaurant without the mural.

    Had a nice lunch, the atmosphere was good, service fine and for the most part the food was good. One diner had the Eggs Benedict that were very blahhhh and the fried potatoes served with them were overly seasoned and not edible for someone sensitive to heat. The biggest problem is FINDING the place. The directions are not easy and the construction and changes in the area make it difficult for someone who has not been to the place before. We almost gave up and went somewhere else.
