Our Vision

Ever since we transformed a two-room watering hole into a preeminent menu-driven saloon over 60 years ago, Clyde's Restaurant Group has always seen Washington as more than a city of politics. Behind every one of the 12 properties owned and operated by Clyde's Restaurant Group is a concept designed to offer a truly memorable dining experience in Washington.

Perhaps that is why Clyde's Restaurant Group has remained one of the most successful and enduring restaurant companies in the nation. While we've certainly created a formula that works, what keeps us evolving are the friends we've made along the way, the energy of our staff, and the continued growth of a place we lovingly call home.

Graham Holdings Company

In 2019 Clyde’s Restaurant Group became part of Graham Holdings, formerly The Washington Post Company. Based in Arlington, VA, Graham Holdings Company (NYSE:GHC) is a diversified holding company whose principal operations include educational services; television broadcasting; online, print and local TV news; home health and hospice care; custom manufacturing; consumer internet; automotive; and, restaurant venues.

Our Food

We're pleased that more menus are featuring words like "locally-raised" and "sustainable," because we were one of the first in Washington to use them. Long ago, Clyde's Restaurant Group chose to bypass traditional commercial produce routes and opt for locally-raised, farm-grown vegetables and fruits. Not only does this provide fresher ingredients for our chefs and guests, but we consider it part of our ongoing collaboration with the local economy to design dining experiences that support the region’s growth. In addition to our produce, our legendary burgers are made using hormone-free beef, and our chicken is antibiotic- and hormone-free as well, sourced right here in the area.

Our Wine

Each property is as unique as the neighborhood it inhabits, with our selections further complementing the wide variety of flavors, textures, and courses we prepare. Over two decades ago, we created the Clyde's Restaurant Group Core Wine Program. With sorting performed once a year and encompassing several rounds of tastings and pairings by noted wine consultants and published wine authors, such as Michael Franz and Paul Lukacs (1956-2021), we know of no other restaurant company in North America that conducts a process as extensive and rigorous.

Charitable Requests

We are a neighborhood saloon devoted to the communities we inhabit and the metro area as a whole. Email us at

Giving back to the communities where we live and work is important to us. When we open a restaurant, we expect it to be a part of a community for many years to come. We strive to find ways for our employees and our company to be involved and give back to the community. With a diverse variety of local fundraising activities and corporate giving programs, CRG and its restaurants contribute annually to a number of worthwhile charities.

Requests for in-kind donations are reviewed on an ongoing basis. Please send in your request as far in advance of the event as possible. Due to the high volume of requests, please email or mail your information; no phone calls, please. We are unable to respond to every request. Please include all information needed to reply to a donation request, including a mailing address.
