Opened in 1963, Clyde's of Georgetown qualifies as an institution. This animated tavern in the heart of Washington's most famous neighborhood popularized saloon food and practically invented Sunday brunch.

Great food & location

Loved the corned beef for St Pat's Day and the location is in the heart of Georgetown. Would definitely return.

Clyde's Restaurant was a good choice as we had an early concert at the Kennedy Center and the restaurant was very close to a Metro Station. We were seated in a glass enclosed room that was light and filled with hanging plants. But other rooms were very beautiful with oil paintings, dark wood, and comfortable looking booths. The menu was... More

A good solid place for dinner with good variety. It's a lot bigger than it looks from the outside so don't be discouraged if you walk in and everything looks booked. That being said, I owed still really recommend you make reservations id you can because you will most likely wait a little without them if you just show up... More

Clyde's has been an iconic mainstay of Georgetown for 50 years. I have eaten there at least 40 times over several decades. Always very pleased with my meals. However, on my most recent visit for brunch ( which is one meal they are known for), I was less than pleased. We were seated in the back atrium room which I... More

had lunch at the bar two consecutive days two weeks ago. The fact I went back the second day says a lot. Very friendly and competent service. The rockfish entree was delightful, never thought pureed beets could taste that good. There are a lot of places in the area to choose from and I found Clyde's to be very enjoyable.

A casual M street spot with a lot of history. Eclectic crowded decor but married with unexpectedly excellent food. Not the normal "wings and deep fried bar food normally associated with a bar. A lot of restaurant space in two large rooms away from the bar itself. Reservations essential for a larger group. There were no reservations available on Open... More

We loved the charm of Georgetown and the area and found Clyde's on Open Table. The reviews were spot on, the food is tremendous, the service first rate and the prices were pretty decent. Get the crab dip with the baguette, it is succulent. I wish I could have some today!

I felt a little underdressed with my Capitols Hockey T-shirt on but they let us in. Employees were very nice and polite. Our server as very attentive. My crab cake had a little more filler in it then I would have liked. But my husband said his fish and chips were excellent. I did not like being sat so close... More
