    Food was average; fish was OK (rockfish), but veggies were. ho-hum. Bread was delicious, after we asked for it. Moules were tasty, but sauce was heavy. Requested pie a la mode, but only got whipped cream instead. Cancelled the a la mode order. Service at night was whipped, I think. (Thanksgiving dinner!) Sweet waiter, but overstretched. He was always running. Never seen anything like it. I tipped him 25%,though, because he has no control over the food. If I go back to Clyde's, I will remember I am going to a high-class cafeteria, with entertaining hanging art (planes, trains, etc) and good seating (booths are great. That is what I am paying for--not the food. Good bathrooms, too.

    5:30pm was our reservation. We were on time, seated as soon as we arrived. Our waiter was gracious, courteous, professional, and even if he had many tables to attend to, he tried to manage his assignments as best he could. The lamb chops that I ordered were tender and cooked at the right order, medium. The salad, dessert, and drinks were excellent, as well.

    One of the seats fell apart that my husband was seated in but our waiter was excellent and exceptional in moving us to another nearby larger table booth that was wonderful! He was outstanding through and I believe his name was Eamon (?) We made sure to tip him well! Thanks for an enjoyable and relaxing Thanksgiving!

    The 3 carbs, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes and stuffing was nice. The turkey was not cooked skillfully; very dry and tasteless with no seasonings. The pumpkin pie was fantastic. They need to request their contractor to hire a better chef to prepare the turkey. Thanks. Ch (I would recommend to a friend if they hire a better chef.)

    Dependable fare. Wasn’t very busy—we were seated in a corner away from others—not sure if that was because our party was an odd size (5) or if that’s just the post Covid thing. Enjoyed our dinner for sure, but wait staff was pretty gruff and whatever. Had better service in diners.

    Clyde’s of Chevy Chase does such a nice job serving good food in a relaxed environment. Every employee we encountered was polite, thoughtful and friendly — this distinguishes Clyde’s from almost every other restaurant I patronize. From the young man who seated us at our table (asking my 92-year old mom if he could help her with her coat!) to our attentive waiter who made sure we got our meal promptly so that we could make it to an event on time — it’s clear that making customers feel welcome and cared for is a top priority. Such an enjoyable experience.

    The food was good, service great. We were eating outdoors due to health concerns of some of the party-indoors eating is no go during the pandemic. When we reserved we thought Clyde’s still had their “plastic wall” hanging form the tent. They didn’t. And in spite of multiple heaters it was very cold due to a constant wind at night. Bring back the plastic wall please.

    Don't go on a Sunday! For the second time in a row, we've had a really hard time getting the attention of any waiter to order, having to resort to arm flailing to try to attract someone's attention. Then it took forever to get drinks and the order. The coffee cake and bread were dried out (the latter inedible). The waffles were huge and despite the fact that my husband wanted two we were given three, and his sauce was plopped on top of the waffle, not on the side as asked. The eggs benedict were nothing special and the few potatoes dried out. One of us waited forever for ketchup for the burger, and then was forced to get up and find some. So while Clyde's has a lot of charm, this was a bad experience.

    Ate dinner there with two friends from out of town. Their dishes were good (chicken breast and cod) but mine was frankly terrible (Garganelle pasta). I’ve previously had good to excellent food there but this was a big miss. Three stars because I was the only one who had a one star meal.

    The service is very good. We cannot afford to dine at Clyde’s often but when we do it is always worth it. At restaurants like Red Lobster and others you have to ask servers for the basics like silverware, a straw, or a spoon for your coffee. I believe some restaurants do not train their servers properly. We received much better service in the good ole days. Clyde’s, we appreciate you!

    Early for brunch we were among the first seated in our section. Next came two sets of very noisy children who were seated on both sides of us. I love Clyde's but haven't been in a while. Disappointed.

    I didn't; have a huge meal, just a cup of cream of crab soup, a hamburger and a Diet Coke. The soup and burger were both delicious. The burger was cooked perfectly at medium-rare temperature. However, the "star of the show" was my waitress, Kate M. She was attentive and absolutely delightful. She made it a very pleasant dining experience.

    The new outdoor heaters are a major improvement. Prices for items on the menu are up 20-30%. No daily or early bird special. A disappointment for Seniors and those on a budget.
