I debated 3 or 4 stars; I went with 4 because of the ambiance. We came to Clyde's because it was midnight, we were hungry, and nothing else was open. And then I was so glad that we came to Clyde's because the ambiance was fun. Very old-fashioned and intimate--tall ceilings, cozy booths, lots of decorations. I felt like I could really sit back and enjoy. And enjoy I did! I got a reuben and enjoyed the hell out of it; the meat was good, the bread was good, the saucing was good. It was a warm, nicely done sandwich. The fries, unfortunately, were eh. I was, for whatever reason, quite taken by the water pitcher. It was metal and in the shape of a fish, and it stayed icy cold to the touch. The waiter filled our waters from the pitcher and then left the pitcher on the table so we could refill our own waters. That was nice, and allowed me to study the pitcher in greater detail! With all of that said, I wish Clyde's were a bit cheaper.

Came here for drinks and snacks before a show at the Verizon center. It was crowded, but even for a crowded night, the service was really slow and unattentive. The food was only OK, but the beer selection was pretty good. The crowd/atmosphere wasn't the greatest, probably won't be coming back.

Clyde's is always a pretty solid dining experience. It's packed and you will likely not be seated without reservations when there's an event at the Verizon Center. You may be able to snag a seat at one of the bars though. Upstairs looks very fancy old world but I've never really thought of the place as fancy. I normally get the crab cakes and they're always good. I like their mixed drinks as well. I normally get good service whether at the bar or seated.

The food at Clyde's is fine, but the service is pretty terrible, particularly at the bar. Prime example: the bartender told my group to literally shout our orders across the bar as he stood at one end and we were at the other. When we declined (because shouting would have been unnecessary and awkward as it was not crowded and Clyde's is not a rowdy sports bar), the bartender became visibly annoyed as he walked over to us. He then proceeded to give my friend the entirely wrong drink and forgot mine all together. I try to avoid going to Clyde's as much as possible.

Beautiful interior and good food, but this is the first restaurant I've ever been to that couldn't come up with yellow mustard. Seriously, with a $13 hamburger? And, the server waited until we were nearly finished before offering another beer and refills on the kids' sodas.

A great pre-movie spot. I've eaten dinners here, grabbed quick drinks before a hockey game, and had a casual catch up with a friend and Clyde's has always been consistently good with awesome service. Order a bloody for brunch and oysters for dinner/happy hour. Happy hour downstairs can get packed when the Capitals are in town.

Eating at the bar is cool but grab a booth and have a sit down dinner of you can. It's always crowded but I've never had to wait very long for a table. The food is typical American fare... nothing to brag about... but I do like the decor. Plus, it's centrally located in Chinatown so it gets four stars for location, location, location
