Mask Usage
We know it is no fun to wear a mask while enjoying a night out, but our staff's safety is no laughing matter.
We require all guests to wear a mask while moving about the restaurant, and when speaking to Clyde's employees.
Masks have been a hot topic, with passionate views on all sides. With our team and their families' health at stake, we must err on the side of caution. We hope you will understand and look forward to the day, hopefully soon, when we can all throw our masks in the trash.

It was an absolute pleasure to post-pandemic INSIDE dining at the Old Ebbitt Grill. The food was terrific - we both had the Steak Frites - and the service was, as usual, spectacular.
All of the social distancing rules were obeyed and masks were worn, except when eating or drinking. In short, exactly what I expected of one of my favorite restaurants.

My mom was on crutches and everyone was very accommodating in making sure she was always comfortable. In addition, we came during COVID and our server, JJ, was very kind and positive about the whole situation. She explained new protocols succinctly and she was always easy to understand.

This place is usually a DC hotspot and always proves itself worthy. COVID-19 has let them working hard to make it to the other side. I highly recommend this place!!!

I had a lovely meal on 4th of July with a good friend. Great service and food at fair prices. Nice environment. The burger and Buffalo chicken sandwich were great options.

The oysters were fantastic and the Shrimp Friablo could have been spicier bt was very good. The Old Style chicken salad was very delicious.
Our waiter was courteous and prompt! Very nice man.

The food was pretty good, service was great and the place was cute with a lot of character. However we were seated right at the entrance in a high traffic area which wasn’t very relaxing and not great for social distancing.

Not the same since COVID. Previously, always 5 stars, awesome in every category. Not now. Very disappointing. Bartender did not know how to make drinks. Lettuce was warm and limp in salad. Crab cakes tiny. Hardly any oysters. Because this is the first poor experience out of many, many years, will go back again hoping they recover.
