Made up of 4 antique buildings from the 18th and 19th centuries, Willow Creek Farm is truly a one-of-a-kind dining experience. Seasonal outside dining. Several rooms that may be used for private events, and two private dining rooms. The rooms are filled with a variety of original artwork - from weathervanes and antique signs, to an original collection of Audubon prints, to restored 19th century carriages and sleds.

Beautiful place. Nice to walk around though not as many flowers as in past years. Bread was fresh and warm. Irish old-fashioned cocktail delicious. Food and service have deteriorated. Quiche arrived lukewarm, Caesar salad was tasteless. Request for leaving chicken off rice bowl for vegetarian was ignored. Hardly saw waiter and had to ask front desk to get him. Waited long periods for drinks, to put in order, to get desert menu and bill. Two and half hours total for lunch.

We don't live close to this location so this was only our second meal here and our first dinner. We usually go to the Mark Center location, which was across the street from my office. It's still there. I'm retired. This restaurant and the meal there turned out to be better than our last experience in Alexandria. It's in a nice building, in a pretty setting, with plenty of parking space. The inside is an equestrian reflection of the chain's different themes. The service was excellent (it still was in Alexandria too). The menu was extensive. Our server made great recommendations. Our choices were hot and tasty, We both especially liked the shared, lightly breaded fried calamari because of the variety of flavors provided by the squid itself, the fried red onion, the fried jalapeno and the sweet Thai chili sauce. The baked shrimp scampi sounded different so we each ordered that as our main course. It was good, but we'd try something else the next time around. There were many, many more choices. We're moving in the next couple of months to a new home about 6 minutes from them. We'll be back.

The food was great as always! Our waiter was very professional and went out of his way to respect dietary restrictions. I had a Nicoise salad with salmon. It was cooked to perfection. Two other guests had the Walter special, which they loved. The only meal that was just so-so was the sockeye salmon. We had the crème brûlée and chocolate flourless cake for dessert. Both of which were fantastic and provided an excellent ending to our 40th wedding anniversary!
This is our go-to restaurant to celebrate any occasion! We love Clydes at Willow Creek!

They were understaffed since they had two private parties going on. The hostess girls were very rude. Waitress was great but had too many tables to keep track of.

Clyde’s has been one of our go-tos for years, so I chose to bring some out-of-Town guests there for dinner the other night. I’m hoping it was just a bad night, and nothing to do with the management. We placed our order and sat for approx 30 minutes before we saw our waitress again. She stopped to tell us our bread should be out shortly, when we were expecting we should be receiving our entrees at that point. A minute or so later, a runner brought out our meals (no bread yet). We pointed out that one of the salads was not what was ordered (we ordered the grilled shrimp salad, but received a chicken Cobb). The runner said, “well, it’s going to take a long time to get it...are you sure you don’t want this one?” I said we wanted the salad we ordered, and our friend who ordered the shrimp salad said she wouldn’t have ordered the Cobb because she doesn’t eat bacon. The runner said he could take the bacon off her plate. Again, I said we wanted what we ordered. He left in a huff. Meanwhile, our waitress walked by. I let her know the order was incorrect and that we still didn’t have bread. She said, “well, the bread takes 8 minutes to cook”. I told her we had been there over half an hour. A little while later, a different runner (tall guy with red hair) came out with the shrimp salad and a smirk on his face. He said (very loudly and sarcastically), “we hope you will find this to be absolutely perfect”. I should have called a manager at this point, because we were not being rude or unreasonable. He then asked if he could get us anything else. My daughter asked for ketchup, and again, very sarcastically he said. “It would be my pleasure”.
Our out of town guests were not impressed with Clyde’s, and I couldn’t believe the rudeness of the staff. We’ve never experienced anything like that there. I hope Clyde’s will take a close look at the caliber of employee they had working there last Saturday. Definitely not their finest.

This is the second time I have been to this Clyde's - overall Clyde's restaurants are a great experience no matter which one you go to, but Willow Creek Farm is one of the best. Our server, Jana, was amazing -- perfect service, great recommendations!

We arrived at 6:58pm for a 7pm reservation. We were seated immediately. Very impressive.

We dined in the Carriage Room adjacent to the bar. The acoustics of the room made hearing difficult. If you would like quiet conversation ask to be seated elsewhere.

The service was very attentive and prompt. Plenty of kudus and no complaints.

The food was good. The dishes we ordered were common. The ingredients were fresh.

Overall, a fine experience.

First we almost got knocked over by a customer trying to leave as we were already partially thru the door!! Had reservations for 6:15....seated on time but not the room or booth as requested.....a table for 4 in the middle of a room. My husband had to clean off the puddles and sticky stuff on two chairs while a server wanted us to MOVE as she was determined to bring another table dessert. Did get seated in the room and a booth as requested since I believe the manager recognized us from the initial run it with an exciting customer. The two husband's ordered a whole rack of ribs which both wives appreciated as our meals were TINY and had to have a few bites of their meaks! Salmon with no starch and small for $22 and crab cake that was not up to Clyde's usual. Took 35 minutes to receive our meals. Maybe they should not book a wedding, baptism and rehearsal dinner all in one night as they have cut down on their seating by taking over the Chandler room for private parties!!!

This is our go-to place in Loudoun County for good food, attentive service and good value. I had the crab cake - one is enough for all but the hungriest eater. Clyde’s offers one of the best in the area. My wife had the salmon, always a winner as well.

Had family visiting from out of town and decided to head to Clyde’s for dinner. Shared the hummus and crab dip appetizers. Hummus was so fresh and seasoned wonderfully. The crab dip was awesome! We all put hummus on our bread or pita and then added the crab dip. Awesome combination! Main courses were filet mignon with the zucchini/squash side. Delicious! Trout Parmesan was big portion and delicious! Baked shrimp scampi was a hit! Alaskan salmon was tender and amazing. Can you tell we enjoyed this?? Lol. We did shared desserts...the blueberry basil pie and the peach cobbler, both with ice cream. The flavors were amazing. The only criticism was too much crust. The pie was artisan style rather than traditional crust and the cobbler had heavy crust rather than just baked crumb topping. But that didn’t stop us from enjoying them! Everyone had a wonderful time. Our server, Sheryl, was awesome! She saw we weren’t in a rush and paced us very well. This is why we love Clyde’s!’

Food was good.. always like going to this Clyde’s because of its decor and history behind the buildings. Our waitress this time was very annoying, though. She would wink at us after every sentence and she was so overly dramatic with everything she truly sounded like she was practicing to be in an X-rated film… It didn’t take away from the food or the ambience but it make us all cringe each time she came to the table. She was trying waaaay too hard to the point of being obnoxious.

Something just seemed...off. My husband ordered a “spicy” lentil burger, and it was anything but. The sangria was slightly off too. We normally have a great time, but this visit? Not so much. William and Randy were amazing and made sure we were heard and compensated.
