    Beware! The upcharge for substituting sides has gone up substantially. For example, French fries substituted with sweet potato fries, which always used to be free, has gone up to more than $4. Same thing with adding caramelized onions to a burger. The food is good, however.

    Food was generally great with the exception of the breaded catfish dish, which was disappointing. Still miss the trout Parmesan, an all time favorite. The cream of crab soup is fabulous, and we are happy it returned to the menu. Oysters and calamari great as always.

    Great Sunday brunch, seven of us after church on a scorching hot July day. Our server was particularly good (young Asian-American man, didn't catch his name) and both parents and kids alike had a great meal. Shrimp and grits were "soupy"--by design--and that was unexpected but still quite tasty, a departure from the way the dish is usually served. The miniature train is out for repairs and that's a bummer since it's always fun to watch it circumnavigate the restaurant on the tracks just below the ceiling. You can never go wrong w/ Clyde's.

    Although our server (Nimai) did a good job in heroic circumstances (there was a party of 15 people next to us), the food was not up to par. We didn't like the shrimp/ grits, or the breaded catfish. These dishes are not that difficult to prepare. Clydes should do better.

    Food was not great. The eggs Benedict barely had the sauce. About a tablespoon at best and the potatoes were reheated so not worth eating. Also would have bren great to be able to get a capaccino or espresso but they don't offer any. Overall place looks dated. Team was nice but won't return because it wasn't good

    My wife and I had dinner on July 4th at a time when the crowd (at least outside) had eased up. Clearly the restaurant is still among those with a shortage of personnel since we were told that they would have to figure out who was going to serve us. Fortunately, this time turned out better than another recent visit when I had beer spilled on my lap and they still tried to charge me for it! Our server was there to take our order in reasonable time with other personnel bringing our drinks followed by our food. Clyde's food preparation is very consistent and it, together with the menu choices, ranks it as a 4-star restaurant.

    Clydes of Chevy Chase continues to provide very good quality food at reasonable prices. Unfortunately, they seem to have switched bread suppliers, for the quality of what used to be superb bread has gone down. It looks the same, but the taste and texture are not as good. I ordered the shrimp and grits, which was excellent. And they continue to accommodate my friend's salt allergy with tasty food. Few restaurants do so.
