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.

I ordered three meals to go and unfortunately they forgot my food in the bags. Which I paid over $200 in service. Not a go night returning home and my mom didn’t have her meal in the bag.

My only complaint is that October 24, was my 25th Anniversary. The waitstaff did not congratulate us nor offer a small treat. This would have been special but the opportunity was missed!

I can’t for the wings and they were out due to inventory issues. I asked for a well done burger, it was very pink medium . Disappointed in the Hamilton

We are from out of state and researched restaurant to eat at... The Hamilton was the second on the list and had 4.5 stars and well... it did not disappoint! We loved all the food we ordered. It my favorite was the Brussels Sprouts! Best ones I have ever had!

Very slow service, though there were hardly any customers.

Expensive food and lovely decor, but the music was 1960s and 1970s pop, including Fat-Bottomed Girls. The song isn’t too bad by itself, but it is when you’re trying to bring your family out to a nice meal on vacation.

Sushi was pretty awful (we tried two and disliked both). Seaweed salad was fine. Tempura shrimp was dull. Rice was clumpy. Lobster shepherd’s pie was good.

We waited half an hour for our check. We finally decided to have dessert since we were just sitting there. We grabbed an employee and asked if we could order dessert. He said yes and walked off. We thought he went to get our server, but neither he nor our server ever returned. We finally called the restaurant to get our check. They said a manager would bring it to us and apologize, but a regular server brought it without an apology (and it wasn’t our server). We waited another 10 minutes, then left.

We felt like we wasted our money on subpar food and bad service.

Saturday night food was so good that I decided to place take out the next day and my mashed patatos from the order was missing and I was unable to come back. Please be better with your takeout service I work hard for my money and if I spend it on food I’d appreciate getting the food.thank you

The food and service were brilliant; the issue was that even after having made a reservation, I stood outside for 25 minutes while people who walked up were seated before me.

We were visiting DC and staying in nearby Marriott hotel. There were six of us. The Spicy Orange and Pear Sangria were excellent. We all enjoyed our meals: crab cake, shrimp and grits, lobster shepherds pie, whole lobster, ribs and Cajun catfish. Oh...and bread pudding!!!

I really like the Hamilton but they are pricey. The best value is their sushi happy hours when they take off 5 bucks from each roll. Normally the lowest roll is 11 bucks :O
