Description: Opened in 1963, Clyde's of Georgetown qualifies as an institution. This animated tavern in the heart of Washington's most famous neighborhood popularized saloon food and practically invented Sunday brunch. More than 50 years later, Clyde's continues the tradition, serving classic American cuisine to Georgetown locals and famous faces while passers-by stop in and mingle at the long oak bar. The re-designed interior is an open invitation to the restaurant's life and times with its many travel posters, paintings, and bronze statues. Clyde's of Georgetown remains a Washington classic.

Brought my daughter here and splurged on two whole Maine Lobster's and french fries. A very memorable meal and consistently great services from the folks in Georgetown.

Nice atmosphere with all the sports and planes stuff on the walls and ceiling, good classical food, friendly staff and cheap prices. Definitely a place I'd go back.

Loved the corned beef for St Pat's Day and the location is in the heart of Georgetown. Would definitely return.

Clyde's Restaurant was a good choice as we had an early concert at the Kennedy Center and the restaurant was very close to a Metro Station. We were seated in a glass enclosed room that was light and filled with hanging plants. But other rooms were very beautiful with oil paintings, dark wood, and comfortable looking booths.

The menu was almost the same as that at Old Ebbits Grill which we ate at later. Dinner choices ranged from sandwiches and burgers to steak and seafood platters. Prices were very reasonable and service good. Great place if you aren't too hungry but still want an attractive place to eat.

A good solid place for dinner with good variety. It's a lot bigger than it looks from the outside so don't be discouraged if you walk in and everything looks booked. That being said, I owed still really recommend you make reservations id you can because you will most likely wait a little without them if you just show up for dinner.
