Went there this past weekend for a late night snack and drinks. The service was terrible. I saw our drinks sitting at the bar for awhile. The waitress came to our table and apologized for the wait on the drinks. I told there I thought those were it sitting on the bar, and she laughed and said she had been waiting at the other bar. That type of service continued all evening. The prices were reasonable and the food was decent.

We love Clydes and had a great experience over dinner ... until the end. The waiter said he would validate our parking to be 1/2 off. When we left the parking garage it was $22 - we put in the discount ticket which only reduced it to $17.50. That’s not half off!!! So I put in my credit card which promptly got stuck - we had to get help to unjam the machine and when the guy reran my card, I ended up paying the entire $22. Guess that’s the life in Georgetown - but at that rate I don’t know if we will go back any time soon.

Upon walking into Clyde's there was a very strong smell. It was extremely unpleasant and as we were seated, reached the entire restaurant. Almost like old fish, or garbage.

Our waitress was fantastic. Extremely accommodating.

Crab Stack was very good but had some electric green pieces of crab in the salad. Not sure if it was food dye from the salad, however made it look somewhat unappetizing.

Crabcakes are super small and average tasting. Calamari was good!

Our server was a lovely young woman who convinced us all, while we were avoiding carbs, to try the gratis Sunday brunch coffee cake. She was right. The chef made a special accommodation for me. I go to Clyde's regularly in Georgetown. It's a staple that still stands while other restaurants around are dropping like flies.

Some times I got disapointed with restaurants that accepts late reservations but don't seem to be really open to serve the costumer. That was not definetely the case. Even though I was late (reservation for 11:30 pm and I arrived at 11:55 pm), they were very kind. The menu contained just a few options, but it is understandable considering the time. The pasta was really good !

Went as a college nostalgia trip. The menu has definitely changed (improved!) since then; the volume is still quite high. Fun for a walk down Georgetown memory lane.

I have eaten at several Clyde's locations. My friend wanted to try Maryland crab cakes. We were already downtown and since Clyde's has some of the finest crab cakes in the area, I said that's where we'll go. My friend thought his first crab cakes were delicious. He asked what he could have instead of French Fries and opted for the Brussel Sprouts which he said were also delicious. He also wanted bourbon and the waitress was familiar with Clyde's options. They had Angel's Envy which was what he wanted. We also had some bourbon questions and the waitress got us answers. Our Mussels appetizer was also very tasty. The mussels were very meaty and the broth was very tasty. We were also impressed that the discounted parking price was only $5.00 when the regular parking price was $22.00. We didn't expect that big a discount but appreciated it. Overall, Clyde's came through with a delicious meal.

We were there for a high school reunion.. a group of 6 girlfriends who used to hang out at Clydes as 18 year olds! Everything was perfect and delicious! So wonderful to know that the service atmosphere and food are as good as they were 45 years ago!!

Ehh... nothing special. The service was extremely slow, inattentive and the food was just ordinary. We waited almost 20 minutes for anyone to come to the table and offer water. The server never checked back after we got our food. We had to ask for the check so we could leave. Will not return.

Glad I booked as it was busy with a great vibe. Food was nice - and healthy! On business from UK and I find US food a little heavy on the carbs sometime. This was a nice break with salad followed by fish with veg. I’d definitely go again.
