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.

Clyde's is a Must, ¡excelente!

I was in Washington DC on business with a delegation from Mexico CITY (UNAM). I wanted to take them to Clyde's to show them a good American restaurant. The service was great, food was good and my colleagues loved the ribs. Right in the heart of Georgetown. Clyde's is an institution.

We visited DC with another family and went to dinner as a large group. They were very accommodating with our reservation and seated us on time. The food was great and the staff was very friendly. It took over 10 tries to get a menu that was complete (they seriously kept bringing us new ones and each was missing at... More

Went there with very good local friends. Clyde's is consistent. The food is good, the atmosphere is fine, in a perfect Georgetown setting. We had the mussels and alaskan salmon. Very good. Kids menu is available. Perfect portions. Nice waiter. Try it.

I can't say enough about how attentive the service was and our brunch was perfect! We had a brunch for 50 people and the manager made sure that each guest was happy with their meal. It's a great value for a delicious breakfast if you are in Georgetown.

The minute you walk in to Clyde's you can hear the excitement. The restaurant is loud and happening with food to match. Go for the crabcake tower. Service was very good.

After a rough start (they lost our reservation), our party of 6 had a very enjoyable evening. The mgr promptly resolved the reservation issue. The June special of salmon was excellent. Others has crab cakes, burgers, ribs and everyone was satisfied. Very seasonable pricing, especially for the DC area!
