Great meal. We were stuck in traffic and late and they still managed to find us a table.

We love Clyde's and just wish there was one at Tyson's. Normally I give them 5 stars, but on this evening, we were shoehorned into the back area. There was not even enough room to walk between the tables. The front area has all booths so that is better seating. I love the fireplace and that area could be much better with fewer tables or booths. Food was excellent. Miss the Trout.

We dined at Clyde’s on a Thursday night. The atmosphere was cozy, and the staff was extremely attentive. We were seated on time. Everything was delicious even down to the dessert. Parking in the mall below the restaurant is very expensive!

Our burgers, wings and salads were delicious. Server modified our order exactly as requested and was careful to confirm we had no food allergies.

Every time I come to Clyde’s I request Rayven as my server. She is extremely attentive and ensures that our orders comes out perfectly. The food is great, but it’s the service that keeps me coming back.

You should make reservations if you want a table for brunch. It got really crowded after 11 am.

I've eaten at various Clyde's for several decades. I generally find the food good to very good, the service very good and the noise moderate. The Georgetown location fit that description. It was fine for a dinner with friends.

Food was great. Environment was great. Bloody Mary was a little weak. But i cannot get over the bugs I saw in the bathroom that shares a wall with the kitchen.

This is a Washington institution and reliable for Sunday brunch. Unfortunately it is so loud when the restaurant is pretty full that you cannot hear anything your table mates are saying. Love the place, love the food, sad that it can get so incredibly loud.

We love clydes in Alexandria, so we were disappointed when we came to Georgetown. Of course there is generally less space, but we came at 5pm for our 5:15 reservation and we were seated with 2 toddlers essentially in the bar, smashed behind a kiosk where there was always a server standing. It felt a little intrusive. There were some really rowdy guys at the bar who were swearing in front of the kids. There were so many other places we could have been seated— just wish the hostesses would have been a bit more sensitive to the fact that we had small kids. The food was just ok.

We were in the city for a wedding and dined at Clyde's twice. My daughter has a peanut allergy and I had found alot of testimonials of families dealing with allergies have excellent experiences here. All the food was delicious, the staff was friendly, and had a great atmosphere. We will definitely come back if we are in the city again.

Excellent service! Our waitress, Kayla, was very attentive and did a fabulous job serving our family with food allergies. Highly recommend this restaurant for anyone with food allergies, celiac, or food sensitivities. They are very accommodating.

Having dined here many times, I was well acquainted with the menu, service, and ambiance. And so I knew I could look forward to a high-quality tavern experience. However, on our recent visit, I noticed a slippage in service and food selection which diminished the value I'd always relied on. The menu was more limited than I'd recalled and our server had an edge that said: "let me just get this night over with." As for the meal itself... the salad, salmon and crab cakes were all good but not deserving of $125 bill. I'd probably give the restaurant another shot, but burgers would be the plat du jour.

Recommended as a must visit for the chili and it did not disappoint. Our server steered us in the right direction with the crab cake sandwich and the sliders as well. Pub-style restaurant perfect for all ages.

It was the perfect Xmas Eve dinner evening. From the stunning nutcrackers in the doorway, to the Xmas music in the background, warm and festive ambience, wonderfully attentive wait staff, and yummy food and cocktails. It was a special evening with my dad and his wife made even more special by dining at Clydes in Georgetown. Memories together that we will cherish. Thank you ♥️🎄

There's nothing like a trip to Clyde's for a holiday lunch or special occasion. The Georgetown location is especially dressed up and lively for the December holidays. Service is attentive and first rate. Recently, we gathered for a family meal which was, start to finish, just great. Try any of their soups, salads, sandwiches or specials. Each dish is prepared with care. Thanks Clyde's for delivering a special family meal, just in time for Christmas.

Crowded Sunday. So it was loud. I Wasn’t shocked. The waffle was good. I should have had a burger. Lol. Hubby had pancakes. He liked his. We both didn’t love our meat side. My bacon too fatty and not crisp enough for me. Hubby sausage just ok. Server got very busy at end of meal and she took a long time to get our payment processed. Way too long. Like I have grace when servers are busy but this went way long. But I love Georgetown and Clyde’s is a staple. So I’ll always go back.

Colin is an excellent barman. Great suggestion on the white wine, which paired excellently with the mussels. Clyde's changes their mussels recipe every few months, and this one was superb with garlic and some tomatoes. I finished with a tasty chicken with a salad of kale, arugula, grains, cranberries, green onions.
