The food was great. I shared an order of mussels with my son and we both ordered the scallops for dinner. Our server KIa was charming and efficient. I’m planning to go back.

I’m loathe to ever write negative reviews, and very rarely do, but:

Dirty cutlery
Dirty bread plate
Stained table cloth in four different places
Dead flower
Table next to us (approximately ten inches away) was un-bussed, and remained un-bussed, until after our desert arrived. (Out of the ten or so tables in our area, six remained un-bussed also.

Both wine glasses were dirty and stained; took over four minutes to replace the glasses (I took the dirty glasses to the bar, golf was on TV, then a thirty second commercial, then another, then a one minute commercial, and then more golf) - HOWEVER, was given to fresh pours of wine.

Food was good. Not bad, but not amazing either.

Desert was ok.

Service was adequate, but did see the waitress in a very animated discussion with what was presumably a manager (before she had introduced herself to us)

Ambience was fine, place seemed fairly clean, staff was nice.

Look - one or two minor things is reasonable... this was a litany. Maybe we caught them on a bad day.

Clyde’s continues to offer Georgetown the variety of American fare. Good value. Interesting entrees. Consistently served.

We were traveling to DC for a conference. I found Clyde's website and thought it would be great. They advertised locally sourced products and a nice wine list. The service was good, most of the food was good. However one of our group's shrimp dish had a medicinal smell, or a soapy smell to it. They took it off the bill, but no manager came over to apologize. As the person who made the reservation I was embarrassed for our guests. I sent an email that was not returned. The next time we travel to DC I will find another restaurant.

I visited Clyde’s for restaurant week. I initially ordered the steak frites and it was delivered cold. They gladly replaced it with the salmon with corner fritters which I brought home because my guest was also finished with her dinner. The calamari and zucchini chips were excellent although my guest thought were too salty.

Per Izzy's excellent suggestion, I had the lentil mushroom burger. While I like lentils, and I like mushrooms, I've never been a big fan of veggie burger. This one was excellent. In lieu of the excellent Clyde's French fries, I had a delicious garden salad.

Went to the Georgetown Clyde's for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. I was jonesing for a cheeseburger and fries, and the Clyde's Group have the best burger in town, hands down. My wife had the Grilled Chicken Salad and was surprised by how much chicken was on it for a lunch serving (a lot). Clyde's Georgetown is a fun location to enjoy a good meal with friends.

Great food, Scallops for dinner perfectly caramelized and the Crab Tower appetizer very flavorful and refreshing! Upbeat charming atmosphere - with super personable, professional and caring service! A delightful and delicious experience. The only surprise is that the desserts were a bit humdrum and not quite on par with the more creative and flavorful entrees and appetizers - as if the deserts were maybe not made in house? Still 5 stars as fabulous overall!

It was a good place for dinner. Service was just OK. Food was good. Not sure it's a "must go to place" but the food was good if you don't mind a little slower service.

Came in from the scorching heat a few minutes before our reservation and were seated within 5 minutes. My favorite thing about it may very well be that the air conditioning worked like a champ and they had water on the table for us weary walkers!!

The service was great - a little slow in the drink refills, but we had the water, so it was fine.

The food was good. Burger slightly over cooked but it was hearty and tasty.

Clyde’s is reliably good, so this is a go to spot whenever we need it! Thank you!

We had a really excellent dinner here. Our table collectively ordered scallops, New York strip steak, crab dip, brownie sundae, and peach cobbler. Everything was cooked perfectly and we really enjoyed the meal. The only thing I would say about this place is that the table and chairs in the area we said and we’re not real substantial. It wasn’t the most comfortable seat. By the time we finished the first bottle of wine, we didn’t really notice LOL
Our server was really great, no complaints there. Our server was really great, no complaints there. We would love to come back someday

We have brought several family members here when they come visit us. Each time is excellent food and service. We feel like it’s a really busy, delicious restaurant that doesn’t gouge their patrons. We love Clyde’s and their consistently great service and food will bring us back again and again.

Arrived, got sat. They took our drink order and it took 20 min to get our iced teas. Our appetizer of the crab and artichoke dip came out right away, it was hot but the taste was average. As for main entree my wife ordered a chicken Caesar Salad and a crab cake sandwich. The actual sandwich was very good. However it took 50 min from the time we put in our dinner order for a sandwich and salad to be prepared and brought out. The waitress came over and kept saying they messed up making the Caesar salad.... and 15 min later said they’re playing it. Our food did come out at right temperature but it was an extremely long wait. No manager or anyone came to apologize. Underwhelming dining experience

We have eaten here before and I have to say we have had better meals. The salmon was a little dry the night we went. But the peach cobbler was delicious.

Have been there twice now based on ranking by TripAdvisor. Both times, have taken my teenage kids while doing DC and college tours. Both times have ordered the Crab Tower and Mussel starters as both are absolutely delicious. Each time leave wanting to replicate the mussel recipe at home. Highly recommend. I only did 4 stars simply because our waiter seemed to be slightly bothered by the fact that we weren't ordering cocktails and were only eating starters. That said, we will be back again next time we're in Georgetown!
