Even though it was crowded we got seated at the exact time of our scheduled reservations... everyone was VERY nice... waiter, servers, hostesses and especially Ms. Ali - such a pretty smile and a very pleasant personality.

The lobster bisque had nice chunks of meat but it was more like a soup than a bisque. My lamb shank had good flavor but was slightly dry and needed some salt. The servers were great and helpful.

There is an old section and a new section of the restaurant. We were seated in the old section and it was terrible. The salads was good but the main meal was not good at all. I will never return.

The Ribeye and Shrimp & Grits were flavorful. The artichoke and crab dip was salty sour. The small room crammed with tablecloth tables that my husband and I were stuffed in was disappointing. The woman sitting closer to me than my husband was coughing. I made a reservation expecting to avoid this especially when I noticed that there were normally sized dinning rooms enjoyed by other guests.

Consistently great service paired with consistently great food. We are a regular customer at this Clydes and always enjoyed the food. Favorites include the oysters, buffalo chicken sandwich (secret dish not on the menu), and sprouts when they have them. Favorite dessert would be the strawberry shortcake

place was a little dark for me, and a little outdated as to design and restaurant decor. carpets need a little cleaning but overall the experience was good. food was ok not extraordinary, we went for brunch. place is kid and family friendy. the service is good , our server is very attentive and great personality. i will be back but maybe next time for dinner or lunch not for brunch.

Clyde's changes their menu daily and also with the seasons. There's always a good selection from among appetizers, salads, sandwiches, entrees, and desserts. We went for brunch and it's always a good selection to choose from My Eggs Florentine were good, as usual, and the eggs are never overcooked! Their french toast also good. Waitress very nice.

A home run as usual. I have enjoyed many of the locations in the NoVA/DC area, but this one is the closest to my home and a place I really enjoy going. Highly recommend for great food, great ambiance, and attentive/professional service.

Prices seem to have undergone a dramatic increase recently. And the food, reliably good in my 15 year experience as a regular at this restaurant, was mediocre this time.

I ordered the lamb shank which was the first lamb shank that I have ever eaten that was dry and a little on the tough side. My husband had the duck breast and he was not impressed. We've been to many Clyde's and have never had a bad meal. But this is the first time we have been to this Clyde's. It was a Tues night, kind of slow so maybe the kitchen was just not feeling it...

We enjoyed lunch in the boat room—ate French Onion Soup, Caesar salad and a crab cake. The crab cake was beautifully presented and tasted great (lots of crab meat chunks). Everything was good. Our server, Timothy W., was a charming gentleman. Clyde's is a fantastic restaurant chain and you can count on them to deliver fresh, consistently good food in comfortable and interesting rooms. We'll be back soon. Thanks!

this is a go to favorite. We are never disappointed with the changing menu.
We go there about once a month because they do change the entrees unlike most other places.
Wait staff is well trained and attentive, a well run restaurant.

Must admit a bit disappointed. My friends meals were okay at best. The mushroom soup was not hot and tasted of flour with little mushroom flavor. The shrimp in the pasta dish tasted old according to my friend from Coastal South Carolina and smelled slightly fishy. My winter quiche was good. Hope things will improve as I’ve always loved Clyde’s and their food.

I came for the oysters. Always good at Clyde's. Had Rockfish entrée with root vegetables. The purée which had lots of beets and broccoli overpowered the Rockfish, won't order that again. Service was lackadaisical. Clyde's is always hit or miss, which is too bad for the price point. Stick with the raw bar.

Clyde’s always has good food that’s reasonably priced. I got their mussels “starter” as my main course, and it along with a salad filled me up. And I consider myself a big eater!

We must have had a new server, he seemed very green. Basic things like not taking our menus after we ordered, not bringing cream for coffee (we asked several times, while coffee went cold), not offering refills, etc. I have never had a service complaint at Clyde’s, this was definitely an anomaly. We ended up having to call other servers over for help. Mind you, I have never seen the dining room so empty, so busy wasn’t an issue. I was embarrassed as I took my parents there, and felt bad about my recommendation when there were so many issues. The food was almost great. One diner’s eggs were over cooked. Not a great experience, unfortunately.
