    Very friendly and attentive service. Server provided a dish not on the menu to my specifications at my request. That's what is great about Clydes.

    My wife and I had dinner on July 4th at a time when the crowd (at least outside) had eased up. Clearly the restaurant is still among those with a shortage of personnel since we were told that they would have to figure out who was going to serve us. Fortunately, this time turned out better than another recent visit when I had beer spilled on my lap and they still tried to charge me for it! Our server was there to take our order in reasonable time with other personnel bringing our drinks followed by our food. Clyde's food preparation is very consistent and it, together with the menu choices, ranks it as a 4-star restaurant.

    Clydes of Chevy Chase continues to provide very good quality food at reasonable prices. Unfortunately, they seem to have switched bread suppliers, for the quality of what used to be superb bread has gone down. It looks the same, but the taste and texture are not as good. I ordered the shrimp and grits, which was excellent. And they continue to accommodate my friend's salt allergy with tasty food. Few restaurants do so.

    Clyde’s has REALLY gone downhill. Their crab cake sandwich - once their most dependable dish - was flavorless and burnt. Service was slow, and servers seemed more interested in chatting with the hosts than refilling drinks or taking orders.

    Best Clyde’s in the DMV! Went to Clyde’s for a late Friday night dinner and have nothing but good things to say about the location and the service. The hot food was served hot and the flavors were all to Clyde’s standard.

    The food was fine, but our server was horrible. The restaurant was not crowded, yet it took our server over 15 min. to take the drink orders. He brought our drinks and then another 20 minutes went by with no sign of our server. When we finally flagged him down to take our food orders, he replied. "I didn't want to interrupt your chatting." ?? That's what servers do. We ate and chatted and checked on us 1 time and then disappeared. Our plates sat in front of us for almost an hour. Finally, we flagged another server to find our server and she graciously cleared our plates. We asked if he was new. She shrugged that she wasn't sure. We decided to give him grace, presuming he was new and learning the ropes... When he returned and we asked for the check and asked if he was new, we were shocked when he shared that he's been serving for 5 years!! We dine as a group often and always tip 20% or above. We didn't want to tip him anything as he was horrible, but then we considered that perhaps he had special needs, so we agreed to tip him 15% because he was just so bad. This server really needs to be coached.

    Clyde's is our go-to place for a last minute date night. A cozy and very relaxed atmosphere make it perfect for quiet conversation. Well prepared comfort food is the rule. Our wait staff, Dana, was so very attentive, one felt like an old family friend. Only downside.... some of the glasses by the wine choices while inexpensive are less than wonderful and not worth trying.

    Crab cakes are back on the menu again and the large lumps of carb meat with little filling make them super. Our server was very nice and attentive, but not too much so. Eating outside was a delight in the early evening. I had asked for a quiet table and they gave us one to the side which was perfect.

    The service is terrible. My food never arrived, and when I asked about it, the waiter not only had the wrong order, but she never actually ordered it. It’s also quite expensive given how average the food is.

    I eat a Clyde's Chevy Chase at least once a month and enjoy the consistent quality of the food and its preparation. My guests had hamburgers, with one commenting that Clyde's missed on medium-rare (the other asked for her hers to be well done). I had the crab cake entre and it was quite good. My fries were very tasty. Unfortunately, it was before the main course that the problem came. A wait staffer brought out one guest's wine and a separate staffer several minutes later brought out the beer I ordered. He spilled it on me. Accidents happen and he was quite upset. I tried to calm him. I did not get a replacement beer until I asked a third person for it. None of the staff I have mentioned was our server since he only took our order and only reappeared until we were well into eating our main course. At that time he said he would bring us a complimentary second round. That was the only acknowledgement of any one at the restaurant. We never got a second round. At the end of dinner, the sever told us he had removed the charge for BOTH beers since he had noticed that there was a charge for 2 beers when one was spilled before being placed on the table and the other was consumed. At no time did the restaurant manager come to me to see if I was all right etc., although I saw a person who appeared to be the manager checking on diners at other tables. The effects of the spilled drink can be easily washed out. The mishandling of the restaurant is not so easily forgotten.
