Our go to place in D.C.

On our last visit to D.C., we happened to stop in at Clyde's. We were glad we did and came again two days later. The decor is inviting and the service impeccable. We tried many menu items to share and all were delicious. If you're looking for a nice, clean place to eat at a reasonable price then... read more

This is actually a great place to eat, with a lovely bar type atmosphere. Service was great, we felt very much at home and well taken care of. The booth we sat in was comfortable. Music was a fun mix, but not overbearing, so having a conversation is still easily possible. We had crab cakes which were excellent. Loved the... More

We went to Clyde's after work on a Friday around 6:00 p.m., just around the start of the dinner rush. The host gave us a great booth in the bar area - which became increasingly crowded and lous, and we ended our dinner thinking a seat in one of the dining rooms would have been a better match. The waitress... More

Clydes is overpriced and over rated. Folks I travel with like to go here because it is predictable but I am always disappointed. They could do so much better with food quality and service for the price charged. I had a good crab cake but left very hungry after a $30 bill. If you go, ask for a table at... More

Had reservation, and glad we did as they filled up quickly. Our server, Layla was outstanding! I asked what she recommended, she said the steak frites was terrific, and she was right! YUM! Would recommend Clyde's to anyone looking for a good meal in Georgetown.

We were looking for a midday meal and stopped into Clyde's. The atmosphere was traditional Washington, which is just what we wanted. Craft beer selection was good, and the food was delicious at reasonable prices. Service was outstanding. Wanted to return, but ran out of time! Next visit for sure!!

Decor was excellent and the ambiance was wonderful. It's a good place for a family of 4. Servers were a mixed bag?some were really friendly while some hesitated to make eye contact, which struck me as odd. Nevertheless, the food was great and the overall experience was delightful.

I have some mixed feelings about this place. We did have a good time while there but what saved it for Clyde's was allowing a Police Pipes and Drums band play while we were eating. The food was pretty good. I don't remember it being overly good, but it was not bad. I had their chicken sandwich and it was... More

A favorite stop when visiting my son attending GW. Always a great meal, good service, and I like the late hours on a Sunday.
