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 service was incredibly slow, which is odd considering the restaurant was practically empty due to COVID. Our table often found itself without drinks and felt like we were overloading the server with requests every time she came by because we saw her so infrequently. The crab cake sandwich unfortunately had a lot of filler — the last one I had at Clyde's (owned by the same group) was much better. My friend said his steak frites was quite tasty.

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.
