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.

We had an absolutely delightful evening of friendship, food and wine at Clyde’s Willow Creek. It is our “go-to” evening out restaurant and we always enjoy our dinner. This evening we had the most attentive server - Abby who was witty, charming and very engaging. Our kudos go to the management team led by Paul Fox.

We were seated quickly. Our server was incredible, some of the best service my friends and I ever experienced. He was attentive, personable, and very knowledgeable about the menu. The food was absolutely delicious and the venue atmosphere was very welcoming.

An enjoyable outdoor dining experience. The portion soft-shell crab entree was less than desired.

We were fortunate enough to get seated on the front porch. The sound level was perfect. The food was great; we had miso cod and it was delicious.

My dinner was very weird, the flounder was cooked perfectly, but what it came with it, shoestring potatoes were the weirdest thing I’ve ever experienced in my life in a meal, Uneatable to say the least. We love Clyde’s. But please rework that fish meal!

The service at Clyde's @ Willow Creek has always been below average and there is always an excuse. At this point, bad service is to be expected. The runners are good. The individuals clearing off the tables are good. Food is great! If this restaurant could tighten up just a little bit it would be 5 solid stars.

Clyde's is perfect for Mother's Day! The dining selection is varied enough that everyone should be able to find something to their liking. Get the Strawberry Shortcake for dessert.

Our server, Mo, was attentive and friendly. The food was amazing! Highly recommend the Peruvian chicken! There was a "balloon guy" at the door, Mother's Day, which my daughter thoroughly enjoyed! Never disappointed at Willow Creek Farm.

Our first time at Clyde's Willow Creek Farm did not disappoint.
My wife and I have been to other Clyde's restaurants and have loved each visit.
Friends recommended Willow Creek Farm and it was terrific.
We were greeted with smiles all around, our server gave us some history of the facility's origins, and the drinks and food were all off the hook great.
We'll be back!

We thoroughly enjoyed our Mothers' Day brunch. Mom had an omelet and dad had a Rubin sandwich. Both were more than we could eat in one sitting and delicious enough for two meals. The sides with each meal were equally well done. The buttermilk biscuits were everything you can ask for. The complimentary coffee cake was as good as always.
Special kudos to our waiter Richard G. for making our meal enjoyable from beginning to end.

Clyde's is a very nice place to dine. I think we have been there in the past and felt compared to other places with similar prices, it falls a bit below the price tag. The service was awesome, the drinks were great but the entree was just ok.

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.
