While in town, my cousin recommended the location to celebrate my mom's birthday. We had a great time. The waitress took care of us well.

Great location. Reservation time was met. Decent menu options, but food quality didn't match restaurant ambiance and prices. My daughter ordered a turkey sandwich, my friend ordered beef nachos, her daughter ordered a cheese burger and I ordered a summer rice bowl. It looked like it came from a lower tier chain restaurant with higher end prices. Our waiter was fine, the restaurant was busy, but I didn't feel he checked back on us enough and we were left waiting without beverages and had to ask for refills of water and beverages. I would go back, but I'll lower my expectations of what I'm going to receive compared to what I'm paying.

My food was excellent. My wife raved about her Mac and Cheese. My daughter did not like her onion rings, but other than that everything was great. Really liked the ambiance and it was a short walk from our hotel.

Clyde's is a tried and true option in Gallery Place that never disappoints. The atmosphere is classic but not stuffy. The servers are always attentive and friendly. And the food is always excellent. The crab cakes were perfectly cooked and prepared, and the burgers are always great. We had crème brulee for dessert, and it was smooth, creamy and delicious. Only down side was a cappuccino that tasted like brewed coffee (was it?). It is not cheap, but our family always enjoys our meal here, and we will be back again soon.

My wife and I came here on our first date. We also came here for our 1 year dating anniversary. We decided to come back for our 1 year wedding anniversary. Our server, Nery, was ourstanding! He was very friendly and provided great service. In honor of our anniversary, he comped our dessert. The manager, John, came out and chatted with us and also congratulated us on our anniversary. Our drinks also ended up being comped. The entrees, wine, and dessert were all fantastic! We always have great experiences at this Clyde's and are looking forward to celebrating another milestone here! :)

My experience at Clyde’s is so predictable and that is why I come back. Great service coming in the door through going back out. Menu is always a bit different, food is always great and service is just outstanding. Thanks for a wonderful evening

it's an institution - and for a reason... the food was great... you have to try the crabcakes!... the fried chicken was a good as any I've had in the south and it comes de-boned... a whole half of a chicken with just a wing tip... I got the sauce that comes with on the side - I don't like my chicken drowning in sauce... and it was tangy and spicy and sweet all at once... delish!

we loved the decor - we ate downstairs in the room off the bar... my only complaint would be the street performers outside... the music and the crowds of ppl standing in the windows was distracting.... so eat upstairs for a more enjoyable experience...

The menu has changed and some of the old favorites (like the steak and blue cheese salad) are no longer available. That was a disappointment. Food was overall good.

Went with three other girls prior to the Queen concert. Everything was great from the hostess, bartender, server and food. Our reservation was for 7:00 pm and we were there a little early and they were able to seat us. We all loved it!

Average in all respects. Nothing bad but nothing really outstanding as well. It was fine a lunch outing for work or a quick meal before the game but would not go to this spot otherwise.

We usually go to the Clyde's in Chevy Chase and had never been to this one. This Clyde's is huge, beautiful, and in the heart of 7th Street. Our server, Anthony, was amazing, professional, and attentive.

The #4 Seafood tower/platter is always a go to, especially during Happy Hour comprising of shrimp, clams, and oysters. So delicious. We also got the crab and artichoke dip. Again, delicious.

We all got a variety of entrees and everyone was happy with theirs. Thw drinks varied from wine to beer to mixed cocktails. All pleasing to the palette. Will def be back.

Clyde's has consistent, standard/safe American cuisine with a bit of flair for some dishes to keep it interesting. I had friends with two kids visiting from the Midwest. Clyde's was a hit with everyone.

It's a cut above pub food, and a good value. A little noisy, but really nice atmosphere. Our server, Heaven, was truly as wonderful as her name implied she'd be! And it was a 30-second walk across the alley to our concert. A great evening all around!

I loved this restaurant - the atmosphere, decor, etc. We waiting a little too long for extra things, though. It may be an anomaly as it seemed as if the service was better with other waitstaff.

We had the steak salad for brunch on Sunday and it was really disappointing The meat was tough and over cooked and it was swimming in dressing. I had just had the same salad at the Reston Clyde's the week before and it was fabulous. I encouraged my guest to order this and boy I was sorry. It was so bad no one finished the salad. I would not go back to this Cylde's.

We made reservations after a long day of museum hopping. Our server, Elvis, was awesome and the chicken and rice bowl was wonderful. Try the creme brulee and the cappuccino!
