Mask Usage
We know it is no fun to wear a mask while enjoying a night out, but our staff's safety is no laughing matter.
We require all guests to wear a mask while moving about the restaurant, and when speaking to Clyde's employees.
Masks have been a hot topic, with passionate views on all sides. With our team and their families' health at stake, we must err on the side of caution. We hope you will understand and look forward to the day, hopefully soon, when we can all throw our masks in the trash.

This was a wonderful first experience in this pandemic era. The service, food, and ambience were excellent and made for a great date night for me and my husband. We definitely plan to return soon.

COVID-19 precautions were in place. Despite the unusual circumstances, Old Ebbitt lived up to my expectations as a repeat customer. Alex was exceptional. The food was delicious and so were the cocktails. Being a crab cake snob, I highly recommend them at Old Ebbitt.

It was an absolute pleasure to post-pandemic INSIDE dining at the Old Ebbitt Grill. The food was terrific - we both had the Steak Frites - and the service was, as usual, spectacular.
All of the social distancing rules were obeyed and masks were worn, except when eating or drinking. In short, exactly what I expected of one of my favorite restaurants.

My mom was on crutches and everyone was very accommodating in making sure she was always comfortable. In addition, we came during COVID and our server, JJ, was very kind and positive about the whole situation. She explained new protocols succinctly and she was always easy to understand.

This place is usually a DC hotspot and always proves itself worthy. COVID-19 has let them working hard to make it to the other side. I highly recommend this place!!!
