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.

“THIS PLACE IS BACK ON TOP! SLIPPED FOR AWHILE BUT BACK ON TRACK”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

We took our niece here recently for a dinner. We were a little leery because recently the place had slipped a little in food and service. This experience however was perfect as to food and service. We each had different dishes and all were enjoyed! The salmon dishes are very good as are the crab cakes. I just wanted a burger and it was perfectly prepared. I also asked for no salt on the fries and that was accommodated. We did not have dessert on this occasion since we were serving this at home. But desserts have always been well enjoyed here. The front desk was also very good about giving us a quiet corner to accommodate a hearing problem for one person in the party.

“OK, popular but average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

Food is good, service is good, drinks are good. So whats not to like? Well nothing is outstanding, good, fine, OK but not great. Not very expensive so I guess that counts as a positive also.

“Good & Friendly Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

There are several Clyde's and I have been to this one often. On this visit, we were a group of seven, which can be an awkward amount to seat. The extended booth was perfect. Food was great. It was a Sunday, with a brunch and lunch menu. The selections were varied and everyone seemed pleased with their choices. Staff was extremely pleasant and indulgent. Very visible, but not pushy.

“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

We love going there; the food is great. It is elegant without being stuffy. Very relaxing. The seating in the booths is very cozy. Definitely would go there again. Actually, every time we are in the area, we go there for dinner.
