  • "Tower Oaks Lodge was a pleasant dining surprise after not being able to book our favorite local restaurant for Easter. The menu offered variety, the food was very good and the service was awesome! The Easter Bunny's visit was great for the kids. The place is a beautiful atmosphere for any event one might plan."

  • "It was a bit too crowded and too noisy on this visit, but that is to be expected on a holiday. Two dinners of salmon and one of steak were delicious and all prepared just right. Most of the desserts were "to live for" especially the artfully prepared "Dome" light Chocolate mousse, and cake covered with a layer of mouth watering chocolate ganache. The rhubarb tart was perfection but the carrot cupcake left much to be desired. Service, as always, was very good. All in all this was a very good dining experience"

  • "The Food & Service was great. However, I was a little disapointed to find that they were only Serving Brunch. Especially as we were there at 3pm. There was no indication on the website that this was going to be the Menu for Easter Sunday. Also, the Bread while Served in a timely fashipn was cold. I would expect it to be Served at least warm if not hot."

  • "While the food won't get any Michelin stars, the service and ambiance are perfect. Our waiter Cliff was like the porridge from Goldilocks... not too hot, not too cold.... just right! Great Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand I hadn;t had before called Fire Stone. "

  • "And why not?? This place has it all - the restaurant, the decor, the service, the food.....all top notch! Stop reading my review and just go! You will not be disappointed."

  • "What I ordered sounded wonderful to me, but when it came it had red peppers flakes in it. I don't like spicy & can't eat peppers of any kind. I probably should have sent it back but didn't. So many restaurants include peppers in their dishes without indicating on the menu that they're an ingredient. I try to remember to ask the waiter before ordering if the dish has peppers but don't always remember as in this case. I understand that red peoppers, whether sweet or hot, add color to a dish but why can't the menu state their presence?"

  • "Clyde's Tower Oaks is truly a great dinner experience. From the beautiful location overlooking woods, hassle free parking in Montgomery county, different decor in every room, good menu selections, very reasonable prices and attentive and customer focused wait staff, we had a wonderful family dinner."

  • "I have not been there in at least six years. I did not think it was very good then but was pleasantly surprised Saturday. My catfish was wonderful. Service wonderful. No one pushed us to leave. Ohio, the rhubarb tart was awesome...just a perfect Midwestern girl's meal."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "food was adequate -- nothing to write home about -- and atmosphere suggested an event spot rather than a good meal out spot. we were in a room with a bar and could barely hear each other talk across a table. Service was good however."

  • "With the dearth of truly desirable dining options in the North Potomac Area, Tower Oaks is our go-to refuge for a great meal. The Clydes group should hold seminars on how to build, staff, and run a wonderful dining experience. Their signature crab cakes are enough just to get one through the front door, but the rest of the can menu hold its own with other standard fare and the special that cycle in and out regularly. Make a reservation (using OpenTable of course) today!"

  • "I always feel like I am on vacation in Alaska when I am At Tower Oaks Lodge. One member of our group was hard of hearing so I requested to be seated in the back. It was perfect. The food was delicious, our service great and we all had a fabulous time."

  • "Everything was terrific with the exception of the Saranac Room which was fairly noisy and the windows were too high when seated to enjoy the view."

  • "I have always enjoyed Towers Oak Lodge with family and friends. This was a celebration of my cousin's 80th birthday and we chose to meet for brunch. The staff is always friendly and attentive. Food arrives hot and delicious, the coffee cake to nibble on while you wait is wonderful. Waitstaff was friendly, attentive and speedy with their service."

  • "Tower Oaks Lodge is a terrific restaurant, whether you are taking guests for the first time to impress them or having a weekly lunch or dinner. The setting is a beautiful Adirondack lodge, with a room focused on hunting, one on fishing, and one with an equestrian theme. The food is great, and the service is wonderful. I highly recommend it."

  • "Wish there were bread rolls and butter served with the meals...like the salmon salad dish - and also the steak dish. Wish there were more variety to select from for the Entrees. Otherwise the food is good, the place is nice and the service is good. Thanks"

  • "Wide & varied menu, we had appetizers, cocktails, entrees: salmon & crab cakes, both superb, dessert was excellent. Most importantly, was our intuitive server--Patrick. I suggest you ask for him when you visit Tower Oaks. Make a reservation through OpenTable for seamless seating."

  • "I hadn't been to Tower Oaks Lodge in a while. It's very convenient, but the food is not as good as it used to be and the price is too high for what you actually get. I ordered mussels for dinner and they came out cold. My husband ordered shrimp etoufee and the portion looked like a child sized portion. The only bargain there any more is the bar menu. After this last trip there I think I will not be going back for a while."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Very lovely ambiance with a wide variety of menu options. The staff is friendly and warm and attentive! The parking is tricky but worth the time or if you feel like being treated extra special - opt for the valet and put all your cares away."

  • "We went to Clyde's on a Saturday night. It was busy, but we had a reservation and were seated right away. The food was delicious (New York Strip, salmon, oysters, MD crab soup) and our server was excellent and catered to all of our requests. It was a wonderful experience and I would recommend Clyde's to anyone who enjoys good food and good ambiance."

  • "Clydes is one of those restaurants that you go to for special occasions. The atmosphere is wonderful. Service is fantastic. The food is exquisite. Prices are comparable to other fine restaurants. If you want to impress out of town guests, take them here! I promise you, you won't be disappointed!"

  • "I was very happy to move here from Reston on 1/30/14, and to find a Clyde's. This is the restaurant in Reston where my boyfriend and I first met in April 2012 on my first internet date and where we got engaged this past fall. I will always be in love with Clyde's. It is also unique, exceptionally beautiful , and as customers we are catered to. The staff is friendly and they do not push you out if you are staying a little too long. Wonderful place. I look forward to outside dining if there is ever a spring here. Thank you. Riva"

  • "Of all the times that I spent at Tower Oaks, this was by far, my worse experience. The receptionist who handled us when we walked in was short, blunt and very rude. When I mentioned that I had a reservation, she told me " to wait over against the wall there, and I'll be called" - I asked why, since I had a reservation, and was told that I just had to with all the rest of the crowd as they were busy tonight. I was embarrassed not only for myself, but for my date, who I was taking there for the first time.. Why did I even make a reservation then?? There is never a reason for poor manners - especially when you are there to greet people.."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Food wasn't that great - we had the special and it was really greasy. The waitress, a young girl, was not as professional as I would have expected and at the end she came back with my Fiance's credit card and asked to see an ID because the card wasn't signed - like we were dining at a fast food restaurant!! Very upset and disappointed."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "My friend and I asked the waitress about the petite Filet Mignons for dinner. They were not on the menu, usually a lunch item. She returned after checking with the kitchen and said we could order them anyway without bean spouts but with spinach. We did and enjoyed them."

  • "Very nice well above average casual dining restaurant. Nice variety of sandwiches, including burgers and a grilled chicken with cheese and bacon sandwich ((which I love), etc. and various other "full meal" items, including monthly specials. Their cream of crab soup is wonderful. I have a very dear friend from Canada who comes here 2 or 3 times a year. One non-negotiable items for her visit to me is that I take her Tower Oaks at least once, and maybe twice, for the crab soup."
