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.

“Local gem”
Reviewed November 29, 2012 via mobile

As a Georgetowner have been eating here for over 25 years. Terrific range and quality of menu. Great value and taste. My favorite alternative to cooking. Best burger in town and fab monthly specials. The manager Dave is simply the best. Will make sure everything is terrific. Do not miss the original, a true Georgetown gem.

“Good Restaurant”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

This is a good restaurant in Chinatown. We walked around trying to find a restaurant that wasn't packed and even though Clyde's was very busy, it is big so they found us a table for 7. The food is good, interesting menu. All in all, can't go wrong

“Perfect Choice for Parties!”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

I have been to several retirement parties at this restaurant and it seems to be a preferred choice to many co-workers through out Northern Virginia and DC. Their salmon is amazing - cooked to perfection! I love their brunches too - need to plan another brunch visit!

“Clyde's was a super experience”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

I was visiting a friend in DC, after a business trip, and we had a delightful lunch at Clyde's in the Chevy Chase area. I ordered the curried salmon, and it was outstanding. It wasn't a giant portion; it was just perfect for lunch, and accompanied by a sort of hot apple slaw that was just as good as the salmon. The service and server were also excellent. All in all, a delightful, out of the ordinary experience.
