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.

“Best Crab Cakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

My aunt and uncle took my husband and I for dinner July 10, 2013. We always share meals at new restaurants. I ordered the double crab cakes, and he got the salmon burger. When the waitress heard we planned to share she had the kitchen split the meals on two plates. Never had a restaurant do that. The cheese plate was great, food was excellent.

Visited the Georgetown Clyde's on a hot summer day. Lovely, cool back room with wonderful early and international travel posters. Eclectic menu with many local items - crab tower was tasty. Affordable and great service.
