Downtown institution – Wood-paneled, spacious but not overwhelming, and always quality. Here, I can feel like a grown-up, seated next to be-suited mid-level executives and the occasional lady awash in pearls, but still nab a can pf BPR for $2 and a tasty burger or toasty sammy for less than $9. A bit corporate, being downtown, but the staff is young and fun, and the food never fails (crab and artichoke dip anyone?). Great for big groups upstairs, or a lively chat downstairs with the sociable bartenders.
Classic Standards Done Well – Clyde's may remind some of a nicer TGIFriday's but I personally like the food and think of the restaurants as a far step ahead of such national chains. I've eaten at this location for brunch and at the Georgetown location for dinner and enjoyed both experiences. They offer large portions and hearty, well-made, standard American cuisine. I LOVE chicken n' waffles, and their "Joe's Fried Chicken and Waffle" was up-to-par with several of the local spots in DC where I've also had chicken n' waffles. Service here is good; waiters here are attentive and friendly. I came on one occasion in a group of 8 and our waiter at the time didn't falter with any orders and was very nice. 8 times out of 10 this (and other locations) are packed, especially with tourists, but I've managed to come without reservations at reasonable times (11ish for brunch, 8ish for dinner) and was seated immediately.
Citysearch Editorial Review – A D.C. institution, Clyde's is a classic choice for out-of-town visitors. The cherry wood decor, white tablecloths and fine oil paintings of pivotal sports moments recall a more opulent era and capture something quintessentially American. The menu boasts traditional fare including oysters, burgers and filet mignon, and seasonal drink menus offer special treats to be enjoyed at one of the three bars or nestled in a padded upstairs booth. The spacious, bi-level layout, versatile menu and convenient location between theaters and tourist attractions cinch the appeal for day-trippers and locals alike.
Excellent dining experience – First time we ate here and it was delicious. It came highly recommended and we are returning the favor. Thanks for providing friendly service and delectable treats.
