We visited Clyde's on a recent visit to Georgetown Med Center for lunch. It is a beautifully-decorated old-style bar/restaurant. We shared a bowl of chili, which was actually a little on the sweet side....not our personal preference, but nothing wrong with it....and the meat loaf with mashed potatoes and green beans. The meat loaf was very good...not over the top... More

We spent a nice evening here in a small group The waitress was kind. The food was pretty good with a soft beef and a tasty cheescake, although it was good but not outstanding. The red wine was only acceptable. But the decoration and the atmosphere are cosy which gives quite nice memories.

Stopped in for Linner (combo lunch & dinner) while shopping in Georgetown based on reviews from previous patrons. This place seems to be continuously packed. When you stay at the front of the restaurant you don't realize how big it actually is but it goes on for quite some time. From the hostess to the waitress everybody seems to be... More

I like the ambience of this large, yet cosy pub-like restaurant with wood panelling and pictures all round. Virtually like something out of the sitcom 'Cheers' especially when sitting by the bar awaiting for a table to be seated. It was a Saturday lunch hour during which the place was buzzing with customers, filled with activities and conversations. The lady... More

We were celebrating a birthday dinner on a Sunday night. We had reservations and it was fairly crowded at 7:30. They had us at a table for four but we asked to be seated at a booth. Unfortunately, the booth was near the front door and there was a cold draft each time the door opened and also the smell... More

We decided to try Clydes after a recommendation and I'm so glad we did. We ate around 4:00, so there was no wait and the lunch menu was still available along with happy hour discounts. I enjoyed the butternut squash soup to start, followed by the turkey and apple chutney sandwich. This sandwich was a unique combo and oh so... More

We really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. Everything was delicious and very reasonably priced. The new York strip was awesome. I also enjoyed the beer selection.

We're regular at Clyde's but this was the first time in quite awhile that we dined at the Georgetown location. I'd forgotten how much livelier it is here than at most of the other locations but it was fun for a Friday night dinner out with my son. We were seated promptly at the time of our reservation and our... More

During a visit to Georgetown, we decided to stop by for dinner and drinks. All of the wine was $5.00 until 7PM and the food prices were fair. We were seated at a table on the quieter side of the restaurant (away from the bar). The menu had a number of good options and overall the meal was good. The... More

This restaurant is big and fits lots of people. They were great with our orders and allowed us to substitute items on menu or add more. They also offered suggestions of what to substitute. Water jug left on the table which was great. Food was good, big meals. We were there for brunch. Lots of choice on menu.

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.
