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. Or visit our two bars during our daily happy hour for our Afternoon Delight menu of discounted starters and burgers. Serving a late-night menu every evening.

Food was ordinary but ok. Good burger, not heavy. Waffle arrived very cold and not their strength. Rude waiter, awkward service.

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.

The food was good, but not great. Okay for a quick lunch, but not if one wants particularly flavorful food. The service was excellent, however.

Overall the experience was average. The servers were pretty good. The hostess let a party seat themselves, which would have been ok if their weren’t other party’s already there waiting. No apologies were given it was kind of ignored that the party just sat themselves.

The experience would have been a little above average if it weren’t for the restaurant allowing a woman and her dog to stay/eat in the restaurant. The patron walked through the entire (small and crowded) restaurant holding her dog. She proceeded to have a drink or two at the bar and ordered food to go. The restaurant (including the bar) was completely packed with about a 20 - 25 minute wait. The dog was not in a carrier or on a leash, she was just holding it in her lap as she sat at the bar.

This obviously raises concerns about cleanliness and allergies. It is also concerning that none of the staff seemed to think it was inappropriate to have a dog sitting at the bar with food and drinks readily passing by/through the area. Not to mention that even if you couldn’t or didn’t see the dog, you could definitely smell it.

If you're heading to Clyde's of Georgetown be sure to have your reservation handy. It's a bustling spot with classic wood decor. Myself and a friend sat in a booth by the end of the bar and had James as our server. Great service that was not overwhelming. It was a busy Friday night, so James let us know that our drinks would take a bit longer than expected (which they did), but the heads up was much appreciated. Nothing was rushed and they didn't push us out the door after we signed the receipt.

Thanks for a lovely evening, James!

Loved Clyde’s at Georgetown!

Chef Cristobal’s cauliflower appetizer was on point - my husband who said he can eat this all the time! 😁

I ordered the beef stew and it was tasty and melt in your mouth goodness. The desserts were equally great as well!

Thank you for a wonderful dining experience!

Clyde's of Georgetown is my favorite DC bar-restaurant-pub. The fantastic crab cakes are their signature dish. Menus the same at other Clyde's but the ambience in GT is the best. Good house wines, an array of microbrews on tap and an amble menu that concentrates on a range of the most popular dishes, from shellfish to crabs and fish and meat and some very appetizing veg sides. Super, professional and friendly staff.

This restaurant had an awful smell. We were nauseated and it completely took away from the dining enjoyment. It was all we could do to get out as fast as we could. 🤢

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!

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.

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.

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.
