Our friends who live in DC call this a DC staple and I have to agree. The woodwork on the interior is absolutely beautiful. The oysters were fresh and plump. I enjoyed the blackened fish sandwich, calamari, and mimosas. Great experience

Just me but I hate the sports screens in this place. Decent food and atmosphere. Staff friendly. Good selection on menu. On the edge of Chinatown

The restaurant had a cute, energetic atmosphere. The tables were very close together so you can hear your neighbors’ conversations. Our server was fantastic. We went based on their gluten free options. They had several gluten friendly options, but only two truly gluten free ones....More

Hi Andrew, I can't recall whether it was on the menu but they are so accommodating I'd ring in advance and ask them the question. Love the atmosphere and level of service. Have a great time :)

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.
