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.

Great place to escape the heat but enjoy sunshine

Clyde's is a great place to eat. Lunch was well cooked steak and pairing wine perfect. Dessert was too big but tasty. I loved the layout of rooms and the back flying room is a great way to escape the 30deg heat and still feel outside. I'm sure the same would apply in winter about the cold.

Busy and popular place, larger than it looks, with fast service but average food. OK for dinner, but with so many people and with air con blowing at us, it seemed just to lack something special enough to make me want to return.

We walked from our hotel, across the bridge to Georgetown. We had made an Open Table reservation at Clyde's because we wanted a restaurant with a great menu but a fun atmosphere. Clyde's fit the bill. The food and service were excellent and the atmosphere was fun! Check out Clyde's for a more relaxed night of dining.

We really enjoyed our family dinner at this place. I highly recommend the crab cake! Ambiance was so relaxing and inviting, and the staff were all friendly, helpful and seemed to enjoy their work. Check this out when you're in Georgetown.

Clyde's used to be one of my all time favorite lunch/brunch spots in Georgetown, unfortunately the last 2 times I have gone the service was horrible. Servers were no where to be found and the food seemed to have been sitting under the heat lamp because it was cold in some areas and luke warm in others. I hate to... More
