As usual Clyde's Willow Creek Farm was excellent. Mr. Fox, the manager was gracious and very nice. I had the Lobster Shepherd's Pie and it was very good.

As always the atmosphere was charming and the building historically impressive. We arrived 30 minutes early to a nearly empty space but were denied entry because "all the 630 and 645 reservations had to be seated before we were and they hadn't arrived yet." Ah, why? They were not going to give away our table so why make us wait? It was idiotic but the hostess, who never bothered to look at us, was immovable. This is bad management. The food was good. The service wildly friendly, chatty to excess and slow and forgetful. We waited for everything, sometimes to no avail. We never got our water and waited so long for dessert we got up and found someone to take our payment and only caught it to go on the way to the door. Not our best experience there. It was an amateurish performance and unworthy of such an impressive venue.

After making an early reservation. Clyde’s still seared is in the bar. We were unable to talk to each other. We could have sat in the bar with no reservation

Overall very good. Huge location with a lot of character. Husband is picky about his steak and said the cowboy ribeye was excellent. I had the crab cake which was on the small side but very good. Chile and autumn salad also both delicious.

We absolutely LOVE going to Clyde’s for brunch. They have a really wonderful brunch menu on both Saturday and Sunday. AND, on Saturday their burgers are half price between 10:00 am and 3:00 pm. Their burgers are some of the best we have eaten. Great variety of brunch choices; they also bring out their delicious coffee cake, and the service is top notch. If you have room for dessert, those choices are also incredible. We shared a slice of Pumpkin Cheesecake and it was heavenly!!! We will keep coming back.

My husband and I enjoyed brunch at this Clyde's location. The food was excellent -- had the lobster and salmon "bennie". The service was perfect. Look forward to returning in the future.

Table was ready for us at time requested. Food and drinks was very good. (Especially the Acorn Squash entrée. Service was so-so. I did not fee our table was the center of the attention by just another table the server had to attend to. When I go to places like Eddie V's the customer is always the center of attention but with our table, we had long waits for the server to return and food that was ordered never brought to the table. The quality of the food outweighed the quality of service.

Service was weak, food was meh but the atmosphere was unique in a good way. Rare hamburger came medium well. The side of fruit was literally 3 large chunks of semi frozen fruit. The Reuben had chopped grilled meat.

They are always so courteous and go out of their way to take care of the needs of all of their guest.
This is especially true if their guests are celebrating a special occasion as we were this past Sunday.

We love it here. The building is unique and the food is yummy. We have dined both inside and out. Love both.
The waitress was kind enough to check on food allergies and thus had the chef modify the cooking so as to avoid mixing w shrimp. That was appreciated.

We were seated in the tables by the bar with our kids for our anniversary. (Has mentioned that in the reservation) There were tables available in the actual dining rooms. Our waiter seemed to be working in another area but coming by our table on occasion. Service was slow and bar area was loud. Poor experience tho food was good. We’d been coming for an anniversary dinner with the kiddos the past 3 years, won’t bother next year.

Clyde's is one of our favorite restaurants. We took advantage of the lobster special on Wednesday and thoroughly enjoyed the service and those delicious lobsters. Hopefully, we'll get to do this one more time before the special ends!

Clyde's Willow Creek Farm was the perfect location for lunch for a group of seven! This same group has been enjoying Clyde's Fall Lobster Special for over twenty years in various Clyde's locations most often the Tysons location that no longer exists. This time at Willow Creek we had our usual delicious lobsters and better service than we have enjoyed in other locations. Thank you Muhamad K! We also enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant and especially the small private rooms in which we were lucky to be seated.

Service was great, sat on the patio which was great, meal was kinda basic. Ordered the rice bowl for lunch. Nothing was seasoned - all fresh, chicken was tender, just no real flavor. Very unlike the meals I’ve had in the past here.

What a a beautiful place!
I enjoyed the lobster and the price was a good value. I had a small salad instead of fries with my lobster and they forgot to put dressing on it. I had to wait a bit to get someones attention then wait for the dressing.
My daughter order the grilled Cobb salad which was surprising small for a dinner entree and $18, my other daughter had steak and she said it was very good as well as the mac & cheese side (we all tasted it and it was great!)
The waiter kept clearing dishes away, but never made mention of dessert, so it was a bit of a wait before her came around to asking. We all had dessert. It was fine. The creme brulee, though delicious had the consistency of pudding more than custard. I expected to be blown away by my experience, but was a bit underwhelmed. More ambience than fine dining.

Love this location of Clyde's family. We had our rehearsal dinner here a year ago and their private event staff went above and beyond, so we decided to come back for the one year anniversary. Everything was great! I would suggest if you are going for a casual evening take advantage of the happy hour priced drinks at the bar, as opposed to at a table.

Our first time here at Willow Creek. Great location for a private party or for an intimate dinner. Atmosphere was rustic but refined. All the individual dining areas help to cut down on the noise level that you experience in so many other restaurants nowadays. My wife had the the lobster and I had the trout which were both reasonably priced and delicious. Went out to the garden where a wedding party was going on. Lovely location for any kind of party.

Good food and friendly staff
for some reason the outdoor dining was closed and we really wanted to eat outside
Also they don't have round tables which would have been nice

The server, Mo, did an absolutely outstanding job. He was very personable and attentive. The food was scrumptious, and the restaurant's ambiance was very cozy and warm. This was my first time dining at Clyde's Willow Creek, and it definitely will not be my last. I had a fabulous time!
