    Excellent meal!!! The Willow Creek location is absolutely breathtaking. It was my birthday and we traveled from Potomac Mills to dine. It was definitely worth every single mile. The Fall menu was well prepared to compliment the Season. This 49th Birthday was just simply the best! Many thanks!

    Disappointed
    Dined on 10/19/2014
    It was my first time at Clydes, although the other three in our party had been there at least once. We were seated promptly. That was the best thing I can say. The food was far less than I ever expected. I had pumpkin ravioli. The first thing I noticed was that it looked exactly like the pumpkin ravioli I had just purchased at Costco. The sauce had hardly any flavor. I think the rest of the group would say the same about their meals, that it was nothing more than average. The most disappointing was the desert. The pumpkin cake was hard, dense and dry. The apple cobbler was average with hardly any ice cream. The service was average.

    I recently came to Clyde's to meet friends for brunch. I got the fruit, yogurt, and granola parfait. Everything was delicious, especially the seasonal fruit (figs, apples, pears) and the cinnamon-y granola. My only complaint was that there was barely any yogurt. It was almost like eating a bowl full of dry granola—very good granola, but near dry.

    Arriving with the check was a slip of paper printed with the latest news items. I came for diner not to be kept aware of what was happening in the world during the last 90 minutes. Worst of all was the first item about ISIS beheading someone. I didn't know if this was a news items or a promo for the next day's menu.

    Clyde's has the most fabulous outdoor patio area. The brunch menu was outstanding and the food quality/quantity beyond reproach, we really enjoyed our meal. However...service is another story. Our server did not offer us coffee, we had to ask and it took 10 minutes to get it to the table. Slow service is unfortunately part of dining at Clyde's and I found this to be true of any location. It's a shame b/c otherwise I'd give Clyde's a 5 out of 5 - but with the bad service I give the overall experience a 2 out of 5.

    We met some friends here for brunch as we wanted a nice place with outdoor seating. After brunch we walked looking at the four separate seating areas and one of the waiters asked if we had ever walked out to the working farm. We indicated we had not so he showed us the path. It was a nice walk and we enjoyed see the large garden and barn. I really liked the carriages hanging from the ceiling in one area.

    Took out of town friend to this restaurant to get out of Tysons and have good, generic food. Cream of asparagus soup was salty and tasting burnt. No discouragement when ordered but when returned, server had said that others had commented in a similar fashion. She tasted it and agreed. Perhaps the kitchen should have tasted it and not continued to serve. Also, fries should be golden and have a crunch, not blond and somewhat soggy. Beautiful facility and very friendly staff, now the kitchen needs to catch up with them.

    The restaurant is very unique--it's an old farm with barns. It's a great place to entertain a party of people for a special occasion. The drink service was a little lacking when it came to specialty drinks. If you stick to the standard cocktails and beer, then you should be pleased.

    Clyde's Willow Creek Farm is a great "special occasion" restaurant. The setting is beautiful! The crab cake is pretty good (but not great), and my only regret is that I didn't ask for no butter on my veggies, as they were swimming in butter -- too much!
