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.

The server was excellent, as was the DC Daught pale ale and the key lime pie. The entrees were both very forgettable.

Website is not up to date. They do not offer valet parking. Do not park in the garage adjacent to The Hamilton entrance as they do not validate this garage.

Interesting place, server was great and the food was wonderful! Wing appetizer, crab cake and shrimp & grits. It was all delicious! My husband even said he would order a salad just to eat the blue cheese dressing.

While the service was great the food was mediocre. I thought this was a great local spot but it was really just ok food with a nice atmosphere full of tourists in tshirts and flip flops. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing but the price of the food didn’t match the clientele or quality.

We were visiting DC from out of town Memorial holiday period with 2 adults and 2 kids ages 9 and 11. We could not have asked for a better dining experience for dinner. The food choices were excellent which included American fare and sushi as well as a kids menu for picky eaters. Our server Kortue, provided a great combination of attentiveness without being intrusive and allowed for a leisure meal at no rush whatsoever. He was cordial and professional without being obnoxious and fake. This isn’t a cheap meal but I felt for the great food taste, selection, very nice, more traditional finer dining ambiance, it was a good value. Highly recommended for a family who wants a nice dinner out.

Food was good, except the sushi roll that I got which was very underwhelming (they also give you soy sauce packets instead of serving it in a dish. While it may just be an aesthetic concern, it just removes from the dining experience in general). Also, we ordered a milkshake to go at the end which they: a) got the order wrong, but this was corrected after we double checked once it came, b) only filled halfway, and c) did not blend enough for the shake so they just plopped an entire scoop of vanilla ice cream inside the cup. The shake itself was just alright. Ambience is great though, love the booths and the music.

Had an early dinner with our 2 boys. It was a short walk from the hilton garden in where we were staying. The restaurant is beautiful with floor to ceiling wood and artwork. My boys said it was "fancy" but casual enough for our vacation clothes. They had crayons and activities mats for the kids. I had Fiesta sangria and the Shrimp n grits. Delicious but more spicy then I anticipated. My husband had sushi which he said was great. The boys gave their kids meals 2 thumbs up. The little one even ate his pizza crust (something he never does) and my older said the chicken fingers and fries was the best he ever had. Afterwords we were able to walk over to the Lincoln Memorial. A great end to our DC vacation. Definitely recommend!
