    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'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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Loved our after church Easter brunch today. We both had Eggs Benedict, mine with crab cakes and my husband's with smoked salmon. The atmosphere was festive and relaxed. I loved getting my picture taken with the Easter Bunny. I am a kid at heart. We had good service and a comfortable booth in the Omelet room which I highly recommend. One of the best things about living in Georgetown is living so close to Clyde's. The staff is so nice and accommodating. Clyde's is a Georgetown treasure.

    We went for early Sunday brunch and it was not crowded. My husband's food was definitely better than mine - he ordered a wonderful egg skillet hash dish (that I don't see on the menu anymore) & it was awesome. I had french toast that was ok...not bad, but not great either. The issue was we both ordered drinks- a bloody mary and mimosa but it took so long - and it WAS NOT crowded at all. Our server seemed overwhelmed with 3 tables. She went and got my husband's drink but not mine; and seemed to disappear and spent so much time with the other tables and never came back. I never did get my drink. And it was my 40th Birthday breakfast. Probably a fluke server issue...but not a great experience. Probably won't go back.
