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

Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "I have used this restaurant since 1963 or 1964. It has changed alot and improved the physical plant. The food and service are still great. I used it to celebrate our daughter's return from work in Russia."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Decent brunch food, but for what you get, it is a little over priced."

  • "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."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "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"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "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."

  • "My wife and I enjoyed Clyde's so much that we would not pass up another chance to eat there during future visits to DC. I recommend it to all that are looking for good food at reasonable prices in a warm and friendly atmosphere."

  • "This is one of my favorites. I brought my son who is graduating High School and we had a great late morning bruch together under the huge glass ceiling. The wait staff is always great - attentive but not intrusive. My son enjoed it very much."

  • "Clyde's remains a Georgetown staple. The menu changes regularly and the choices are varied, from outstanding burgers to creative pastas, from well prepared fish to interesting salads. The wait staff is efficient and friendly. Don't think I have ever had a disappointing experience at Clyde's"

  • "I am in DC every year for business and Clyde's is a must for me. It has been a classic for 40 years. The food is really good without being fancy. The staff does things right without being pretentious. I will be back."
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "I've been to Clyde's of Georgetown several times in the last few years and I am never disappointed in the food. Sometimes it can get a bit loud during the evening, but the service is always quick and respectful which is a huge plus. I am a huge fan of the lamb steak, and I have never gone wrong with any of their monthly specials either. Very good for dinners, and a good place to take a date as well. A DC staple for sure. "

  • "I finally had the chance to eat here after years of hearing about it. I brought my mom for Mother's Day. We didn't try any of the entrees since we were only there for lunch but the turkey sandwich on their homemade multi-grain bun was awesome. Not too big but filling. The drinks from the bar were also very good. I would definitely return."

  • "It was nice and service was great. The food was underwhelming and selection was very limited. But day still turned out nice. "

  • "Although not very familiar with DC dining establishments, knew of Clydes reputation when deciding on where to eat dinner with out of town college friends. Wasn't disappointed! Service was attentive and friendly and the food was excellent. Crab tower lived up to all the reviews. We ordered a second after the first vanished in no time. Dinners were also excellent. Steak Frites, Swordfish, and Brick Chicken all received rave reviews form our party. Comfortable and casual setting allowed us to catch up with old friends. Good food with good friends made for a great time. "

  • "When we don't feel like cooking our first choice is Clyde's of Georgetown. The service is friendly and professional and the food is consistently good. You can't beat the house wine for only $6.50. This night was truly special. Thank you Clyde's for such a lovely evening."

  • "Our plans changed and we arrived 45 minutes early for our reservation for a party of 6 and were immediately seated. Our server was perfect, not overly talkative or involved, just there when we needed her."

  • "Amazing ambiance, really vibrant with excellent service. The food was good. My only comment was a bit of noise from the bar area from a woman who had clearly over imbibed. "

  • "I chose Clyde's because I knew we'd get great food, service and environment. Once again they came through! The service is awesome - these people work very hard to please the patrons. Also, while not fancy, this menu is very tasty and has the kind of choices that just about anyone will like. The wine list is good enough and while not lengthy it fits this well devised menu. When in DC I'll make sure I visit Clyde's again."
    Dined on 4/28/2014
  • "We dine at Clyde's regularly. You can always expect attentive service. The menu has a great variety to accommodate all tastes and palettes. We always look forward to trying the monthly specials. They are always delicious and they are also always very competitively priced. The burgers are the best in Georgetown. The steak salad and the grilled shrimp salad are also winners. I have tried many entrees and you really can't go wrong with anything."

  • "Was in Georgetown visiting a few colleges and went to dinner at Clyde's. We were running late due to traffic but they held our reservation and sat us as soon as we arrived. Food was good, service was good...place is very loud though. Would go back."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "I originally made a reservation for 4, but my group unexpectedly expanded to 7 about a half an hour before the reservation time. I showed up a few minutes early, asked if they could accommodate our larger group, and the hostess was really great. She was honest and said it would likely be another fifteen minutes or so before the table could be prepped, which was totally understandable for a really busy weekend lunch time. We were seated well within the quoted time frame, and had a really lovely lunch. Also: the croque madame was fabulous!"

  • "Cozy place with old timey atmosphere. Would be a great place for a drink and a few appetizers. We had the hummus for a starter and it was good. But, everything went downhill from there. Our entries were not appealing at all. Didn't taste good and there was a piece of what looked like plastic in my entrée. We told the waitress and she sent the manager over. The manager handled the situation and was very professional and understanding. However, we won't be rushing back for another meal because the food just wasn't very good."
