Mask Usage
We know it is no fun to wear a mask while enjoying a night out, but our staff's safety is no laughing matter.
We require all guests to wear a mask while moving about the restaurant, and when speaking to Clyde's employees.
Masks have been a hot topic, with passionate views on all sides. With our team and their families' health at stake, we must err on the side of caution. We hope you will understand and look forward to the day, hopefully soon, when we can all throw our masks in the trash.

This was undoubtedly the single WORST dining experience I have ever encountered in my 20 years of dining with Clydes. We were seated in the bar area which was NOT busy at all. The waiter took our order and then after dropping off our drinks politely elected to not even put our food order in. After 40 minutes we left hungry. If this restaurant wants to stay in business I would suggest the company find a new general manager that is actually engaged enough to run the business. I’ll have a hard time giving them my business again. The good news is that we happened upon Bonefish Grill in Ashburn and were served an excellent lunch there.

We were there during the Kentucky derby for a date night, so it was an awesome combination of great atmosphere and energy. The races are short, of course, so after that it was quiet and really nice. They do a great job of being upscale without being super snooty and formal, which is great from my view. The food was exceptional, we had the Ribeye and Crab Cakes. The cocktails were also excellent, and the dessert (strawberry short cake) was wonderful. Overall, an absolutely great experience.

We've eaten off and on at Willow Creek since they opened many years ago. They've gone through periods of really great food - to very mediocre. We'd heard through the grapevine that new chefs were hired and decided to give it a try. The food was very good: roasted beets, caesar salads, seared salmon, miso baked cod, plus strawberry shortcake. All were very good, not a bad note in any of it. This is a beautiful restaurant and we've missed eating here. Now its back in our rotation.

We really enjoyed our anniversary night out at Willow Creek Farm! The food was excellent (LOVED the blue cheese asparagus!) and the service was outstanding. The only downside was that we had a 6:30 reservation and requested outdoor seating, but when we arrived we were told there was a 45 minute wait for outdoors. While it was clear when making the reservation that special requests might not be granted, it seemed as though they weren't even reviewed until you walked in the door.

My wife and I went there to take advantage of the really nice outdoor dining that they have to offer their guests. Ambiance was ideal and the weather was warm and delightful. The service was excellent and the food was very good with a wide selection of starters and main course offerings. It was quiet and comfortable and there was no sense of urgency to get through the meal quickly. We love this place for its tranquility, food, and great service.

By and large everything was good. Unfortunately, my hanger steak was dry and stringy. When I pointed this out to our server, he babbled some relational as to why that was and that was it.
Ambiance was great but the food just average.

Our server Hal was great. Food was good although green beans were stringy and bernaise needed more lemon. Dessert menu needs work. Overall food quality is excellent for the price and service was efficient. COVID protocols were strictly followed. Will definitely be back

Pork chop was excellent and enormous - looked more like a leg of lamb. And as always, the calamari appetizer was delicious and unique. However, our other entree - the miso baked cod - was rather flavorless and disappointing; would not order that again.

Celebrated my son's 16th Birthday there. The only negative is that the hostess tried to seat us in the noisy, more information bar area for this special event, event though when I made the reservation I told them it was for my son's birthday. We were eventually given a table in a more quiet dining room area. The meal was great - the fillet was amazing! And the raspberry truffle cake and lavender creme brulee were also delicious.

I had requested a table outside and then told when we arrived that it was first come first serve. I did not know that and wait time would be 20-30 minutes. We were reserved to eat inside because we had a member in the party that would not be able to wait additional time. Table of eight condensed into smaller tables.

While the place and the service were impeccable, the food was very average. We both ordered the steak frites and the steak wad a bit on the tough side and the French fries were off the frozen kind. I would have been happy to get this at an Applebee but not at Clyde’s. I do expect a bit better. Given the decor, you can certainly hope for better. Also, the waitress never refilled my drinks which I usually don’t have to ask. I don’t think we will come back as we can get better quality in the area for comparable prices.
