A word from Clyde's of Georgetown
Located on bustling M Street in the heart of Georgetown, Clyde's is open daily for lunch and dinner, and late-night fare, and serves weekend brunch. This popular saloon has been a gathering place for Washingtonians and out-of-town visitors since 1963. A moderately priced seasonal American menu and friendly and efficient service in a comfortable atmosphere make it a great place to catch up with friends at the bar over a beer and a Bacon Cheeseburger, or sit down for a Jumbo Lump Crab Cake or Filet Mignon dinner. Stop by on Sundays and enjoy our 1/2 wine list all day. Or visit our two bars during happy hour Monday-Friday for our Afternoon Delight menu of discounted appetizers, sandwiches and salads. Serving a late-night menu every evening. Continued

  • "Go with a group, go as a couple, go with your teenagers--especially go with your teenagers. It is the perfect place for young adults. The scene is vibrant. The service is great-friendly staff--and one can find just about anything on the menu that appeals to young and old. Highlights: prosciutto and melon salad, big burger, great omelette and delicious crab cakes. Everyone loves Clydes of Georgetown"

  • "Our party of six...mom and dad and 4 grown sons had a wonderful time at Clyde's. We were seated in the back room, which was open and airy, with plenty of space for our family. In addition to the nice atmosphere, the food was delicious and our server very attentive! With a son at Georgetown, we plan on coming back for many other meals in the future!"

  • " reservation made on Open Table for 3 adults several days ahead of our meal with comment we were celebrating a birthday. Imagine my surprise when we were ushered to a small table in the very back of the restaurant - no view, no ambiance. When the waitress poured the wine for me to taste, she spilled it on the tablecloth and it dribbled down the side of the wine glass. she didn't even have the courtesy to apologize. My grilled Alaskan salmon was way overcooked. My husband's Cioppino was way below average. When it was time for dessert, there was no mention of the birthday so we just left."

  • "For my entire life I've always thought of Clyde's as dependable. Not stellar, but consistently dependable. I went with a small group for brunch over the weekend and my eggs Chesapeake was pretty bad. The English muffin wasn't toasted, the eggs were over poached, the hollandaise was runny, and the mini crab cakes were mostly filler and fried beyond recognition. Hopefully this was just an off morning for the kitchen, because Clyde's has always been nice to have in the back pocket especially for guests who like standard american fare."

  • "Over the years we used Georgetown Clyde's as our go-to place for out of town guests. However, out last visit has us second guessing our choice and might send us looking for another go-to place. The chicken wings are very good; better than the entrées. The hanger steak tasted like had been pre-cooked and just warmed-up. The arugula blackberry salad didn't have any taste at all. How can blackberries not have any taste? The food quality just wasn't there."

  • "Went here before heading on a cruise on the Georgetown water front. I had the crabdip app and a shrimp salad, both were great. Service was great too, they were pretty busy so we were on a tight schedule and they made the adjustment for us to be able to leave on time. Group of 7 of us and we all got everything we wanted with no mistakes and left on time."

  • "Great food! Amazingly good and inexpensive wine list. The fish and chips were perfectly done, as were the ribs. Martinis were perfectly made, and generous! Would go back every week (minimum) if we lived in DC. Can't go wrong!!!"

  • "When you have guests in town and need someplace energetic with a Washingtonian feel...Clyde's is always a good choice."

  • "I took 2 out-of-town friends to Clyde's of Georgetown for their July special filet dinner and 1/2 price wine night. They loved it! You can always count on Clyde's to impress out-of-towners. The filets were delicious and the service and ambiance were great!"
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "The place has wood floors and walls which looks great but results in it being pretty noisy. It was also fairly cold in there (in July) so bring a sweater. The service was really good and the waitstaff are all young, good-looking people. The day we went (a Sunday) they had half-price on bottles of wine - that was great! The food is good if not particularly memorable. I wouldn't bring a family with little kids there, and I don't think it's for the elderly, but fine for everyone else."

  • "We were visiting DC and staying in Foggy Bittom and wanted to try something local. A guide on a tour recommended the place and it was a hot! Had the crab cake and it was delicious. The corn with it was good as well...great side dish! My gf had the filet and loved it and enjoyed that she had a 5oz option. Was a great option and a chance to wander around Georgetown and shop!"

  • "Went with a small group and everyone's meal was great. I had the lamb steak salad and it was perfectly cooked and had tremendous flavor. Several had the hanger steak (steak frites) and all were very pleased. I would definitely go back."

  • "During a recent visit to Georgetown we followed the Open Table recommendations and ended up eating Sunday brunch at this wonderful restaurant. From the coffee cake square they put on the table at the beginning of the meal to the coffee that ended it we kept commenting after each bite how great the food was. The service staff were equally wonderful and we really enjoyed watching one of the waiters balance six dishes on his one outstretched arm while serving the tables near us. When we are again visiting Georgetown we will definitely make time to dine here again."

  • "We really enjoyed our meal here last Saturday evening. I especially enjoyed getting recommendations from our waitress. I felt her comments and suggestions were honest and not trying to up-sell. Both of our entrees were delicious and the wine pairings were great. We enjoyed the peach crisp for dessert, but would have liked it to have more peaches, especially given the summer season we're in!"

  • "At brunch My wife raved over the Eggs Benedict with crab. My toasted bagel with lox and onions and capers was abundant and delicious. Such a great find in Georgetown. Great old-fashioned bar/ tap room atmosphere. Outdoor dining available. We really enjoyed the food, atmosphere and wait staff. Will definitely return. Highly recommended!"

  • "Food was delicious despite dirty bread plates and water glasses. Service was beyond poor -- our waitress forgot our drink and food order and even after telling her a second time, still messed it up. Support staff was lovely, however we still left disappointed."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We arrived by bike from the C&O canal path an hour earlier then planned. The hostess was able to seat us early and the service was great. We were able to celebrate a great accomplishment at a great location. The service was wonderful and having the choice of types of eggs benedict was a real treat."

  • "First of all, I am glad we went to Clyde's because I don't think we would have gone to Georgetown if we hadn't specifically gone there to eat. One member of our party had the lamb sandwich which he thought was very good. I had the Reuben sandwich which was fine. Thankful that I was able to substitute fruit for the fries. Another member of our party had the fish and chips which sadly was not very good. Fish was all batter and not really any fish and the batter was kind of burnt."

  • "I ordered the Ciappino and the broth was extremely salty. I couldn't even dip the bread into the broth as is my custom, very disappointing."

  • "I ordered the french toast ($13.99) with an extra side of sausage ($4.99), which were delicious. As a DC resident, I would recommend for those showing visitors around for the first time in Georgetown"

  • "Everyone runs out of a "special of the day", but when an item is on menu and you specifically coem there for it (softshell crab), your server should tell you as he/she is introducing themselves to you. I was super dissapointed."
