Description: 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. More than 50 years later, Clyde's continues the tradition, serving classic American cuisine to Georgetown locals and famous faces while passers-by stop in and mingle at the long oak bar. The re-designed interior is an open invitation to the restaurant's life and times with its many travel posters, paintings, and bronze statues. Clyde's of Georgetown remains a Washington classic.

This place is famous all around the beltway, but really enjoyed this particular location at the Verizon Center. Great place to pre and post game!

We arrived at 1/4 to 12 lunchtime, to a line of people waiting to speak to the hostess in charge of seating. After waiting for 5 minutes in line we noticed a large stairway to the left hand side of the entrance and we decided to go downstairs. We found a huge fabulous bar with only one customer so we...

One can always count on Clyde's for providing fresh and tasty food. The staff is always friendly, seating is comfortable and one finds all ages come into the restaurant. Parking isn't always the easiest but there is a garage underneath the restaurant which makes it more convenient. The decor is fun, upscale pub-like with reproduction oil paintings throughout that add... More

Clyde's has great food at a reasonable price in the middle of Georgetown. Many of the restaurants in the area are over priced with average food, not Clyde's.

Like most DC restaurants, it is tight and close. But, food and service were delicious. We were a large party and everything loved their meals.

Title says it all really. A party off 6 adults, two teenagers and a younger child and all enjoyed their food. Hard to beat that.

Loved the atmosphere and decor. My kids said the outside reminded them of something they would see in Harry Potter! Great service, good food and good pricing. Chili was excellent and the burgers were very large.

While the service was lacking just slightly, the food and amazing Bloody Mary made up for it. A DC Mainstay, always great to stop in for some classic American eats.
