Great Food in Georgetown

This was a very lively place with a great atmosphere, friendly, efficient service and very friendly servers. The food was excellent, I had the Cioppino and it was awesome. Would recommend Clyde's to anyone visiting Georgetown

We stopped here after spending a few hours in Georgetown. We didn't have to wait long, but had some drinks at the bar while we did. We were then seated in the back room which is a little cramped in my opinion. Maybe it would be fun with some small kids- but for an adult family it wasn't the seating... More

My family and I were roaming around Georgetown and landed here and I'm so glad we did. First of the all the service was great, but the food was spectacular. We split the muscles app and I had the crab cake for dinner and neither disappointed. Very kid friendly and good kids menu.

Enjoyed our meal here a lot. The swordfish special was excellent & well cooked. Can also recommend the double dipped buffalo wings to start, although best to share as portions are large! Service was friendly and efficient, would definitely eat here again

The food was excellent and our waitress Danyal was great. We made reservations for Saturday late on Friday and they were able to accommodate us and our special request. We were celebrating our son turning 18. We were visiting the DC area and did not know where to go. Someone suggested Clyde's and we were NOT disappointed. Good food at... More

This place is really nice. We went there as we were in George Town and it was rated fairly highly on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed ! This is a great value restaurant with very good food (we had between us, Fillet Mignon, Steak Salad, North Carolina Shrimp biscottini all very good). Excellent prices too. The service is excellent.

I've eaten at Clyde's off and on for a long time, most recently for lunch this August. Salmon salad was great. Glass of iced tea bottomless. Prices were reasonable, and service attentive. All in all, a great spot for a meal in Georgetown.

Went just to do a happy hour on a warm DC evening. Way beyond my expectations. Great appetizers with oysters, mac and cheese, and their pretzels. Great price on beers made it an overall great time.

Located at M/Wisconsin, it has a lively, pub atmosphere. The menu is based on a varied modern american cuisine, I would recommend jumbo lump crab cake. Service is attentive and friendly, prices in line with quality/quantity.
