(Updated at 2:45 p.m.) A spin-off of the popular, D.C.-based Old Ebbitt Grill is coming soon to Reston.

The business, which is the leading brand from Clyde’s Restaurant Group, will open its second location at Reston Station in 2025, the company announced. It marks the comeback of Clyde’s in the area after the Reston location bid farewell to the community last year.

The restaurant is D.C.’s oldest saloon, first opening in 1956. Envisioned as a “stylish, modern spin” on the original, the Reston location will be called Ebbitt House and include the grill’s menu, including happy hours, a raw bar and seafood towers.

“Reston Station is shaping up to be the most prominent location along the Dulles corridor,” said Jeff Owens, chief financial officer and head of Corporate Development for Clyde’s Restaurant Group. “CRG is thrilled to partner with Comstock to introduce a restaurant brand that is both new and iconic. We are delighted to be returning to the Reston community, where Clyde’s has been a presence for over thirty years.”

Located at 1860 Reston Row Plaza, Ebbitt House will have 300 indoor seats and two bars, along with 125 outdoor seats and another bar on the patio.

The move represents a return to the area for the company after Clyde’s of Reston closed in Reston Town Center last year, ending 31 years of business. Other brands in Clyde’s Restaurant Groups include the Tombs, Hamilton Live and Mark Center.

“I have had a strong relationship with the Clyde’s Group dating back to the 1990s and have always felt there would be great synergies between both Comstock and Clyde’s as creators of iconic Northern Virginia real estate locations,” Comstock COO Tim Steffan said. “The addition of Ebbitt House to our already remarkable merchandising lineup further strengthens Reston Station as a ‘first thought’ dining and entertainment destination in Northern Virginia.”
