Description: Opened in 1998 in the West End of historic Alexandria, Virginia, Clyde's at Mark Center is a vivid celebration of sporting life on the water. Thirty-five years after Clyde's opened in Georgetown, this property showcases our evolution from restaurants to full-scale atmospheres. From an Adirondack fishing camp to a Chesapeake Bay hunt club, each room memorializes the beauty and adventure found on the water. When you can't visit Nantucket in person, Mark Center is gloriously outfitted with antique model sailboats, a replica Potomac boathouse and a cozy beach shack and bait shop that's ready to welcome any sea dog.

After spending a small fortune at other establishments we found Clyde's a pleasant surprise. The menu is diverse and offers a varied selection from oysters to Guinness beef stew to filet mignon. There were four in our party and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals that were reasonably priced. The atmosphere is casual which adds to the attractiveness for travelers and locals. We will most assuredly return on our next visit to the area.

We received superb service, great dinners and I had a delicious salad while others had onion soup and fish!

A perfect place and the drinks were good!

Resereved OpenTable for 8PM -Arrvd 10 minutes early. Seated 20 past 8. order a cocktail at the main bar set me up for a thoroughly disappointing nite. I wish I had skipped the bar. Eye contact with the bartender - wait almost a full minute for him to break from small talk with a young lady - then to pay $22 for 2GreyGoose&tonic. Weak/all ice/probably only a 3oz drink. Bartender watched too many episodes of Vanderpump Rules? The worst part of the evening was having to be told, after the long wait for a table and a Philly style bar experience, the restaurant had ran out of three of the main course offerings which include my two favorites - the Pork and the prime rib. Did I mention it was 8:30 PM. I also forgot to mention that it was Christmas Eve. Clyde's At Mark Center had been a reliable option. I now agree with recent reviews - Clyde's Mark Center is a 'Used-to-be." Did the former manager retire???? It is sad to part ways with an 'old reliable.'

Went here on a quick overnight visit to DC with my fiance and a few friend. We were looking for dinner after 11:00. They have a great late night dinner menu. Great atmosphere, too.

This place was recommend to us by our hotel front desk staff ... it was the best. A drive from hotel but soooo worth it. We had a large family group of 10 ... and we did a call ahead reservation only 30 minutes ahead .. our table was waiting for us when we arrive. This place has a nautical decour .. but kind of old English nautical .. kind of like the Titanic with the dark polished wood, navy, red, white colors .. it is beautiful .. the food and service were wonderful .. we had spent 10 hours driving in from another state to visit family .. so we were tired and hungry .. the menue had it all from appetizers, to sandwhiches and dinner ... we had a little bit of everything .. and it was all good.. i had the Turkey Burger .. and it was the absolute best ever ... either homemade or resturant .. it was not a frozen patty .. it was huge and juicy .. yes i used the word juicy about a turkey burger ... it was amazing .. so if you are a turkey burger kinda person you must have one here .. the rest of the group and combos of appetizers, sandwhiches and dinner ... the portions were huge .. we took so much back it was fresh and homemade .. we were all tired and a little punch after the long drive but our waiter rolled right with us .. made some good drink suggestions .. we relazed and had a great time .. they have good priced drink specials .. we were in the resturant but the bar looks like fun too.. it was kinda like dinning in the lower dinning on an old fashion cruise ship .. you just have to see it to believe it .. We had a group of 10 with orders all over the board and two pitchers of beer and some mixed drinks and the bill was jsut a little over $200.. so appx 20 each . you just have to experince this place to believe it .. very nice .. lots of fun ... good family time .. awesome atmosphere .. dont miss it ..
