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.

Normally they consider my request for a private spot and this time they put us in the middle which I thought wasn’t nice and many people there

Had a warm day for February and went to sit on the patio for my husband's birthday. Was able to have our daughter which was a treat as with Covid we haven't been seeing her. Nice heaters on the patio, we took a few blankets and threw them over our laps. True outdoor dining but still had a cover over our heads. Meal was very good, food a bit overpriced but the server was excellent, ambiance was very nice. We will definitely be back.

Great to have Tower Oaks Lodge back. Loved the Brunch menu. And a special shout out to our server and the birthday recognition too. Our favorite spot for a romantic time. Hears to bring back to 100% soon and very soon.

Our server was hospitable, knowledgeable and just a pleasure. Food was excellent- Parmesan trout and the salmon entrees were both hot and delicious. Only negative — very small pour for wine by the glass. I was glad I didn’t choose the most premium Pinot Noir It didn’t even look like a 6 ox pour. Minuscule wine glass made it appear even worse. Bad vibe to start a wonderful meal. We were there the evening of 2/15– belated Valentine’s Day date.

What a great restaurant to go to during COVID-19. I took a friend here for a birthday lunch, the restaurant was quiet, they spaced everyone out with booths between parties and the servers were phenomenal. Great job Clyde's Tower Oaks!

One of our favorite restaurants really disappointed us on this visit. Clydes Tower Oaks, has historically had one of the best lump crab cakes in the county, changed their crab cake recipe. Want proof just go to their facebook page to see the old crab cake and then order one at the restaurant...the lump crab has been replaced by shredded and they are smaller then in the past. On top of that they replaced their coleslaw recipe. This has been two dining experiences in a row, so this is the new crab cake, bummer we will not order this again. As always service was great.

It is the best place to eat, but I was not happy with Reservation request service and Over the phone customer service. I didn't get what I request when I reserved or they didn't tell me they are not providing what I request.

They seemed to be under-staffed. We ordered tea for two but got only enough hot water for one. No tea choices were offered so we asked for English Breakfast. When it came it was decaf, which we did not want. By the time we got the hot water we needed, the tea was cold and I was not able to get the sugar I wanted for the tea.

If you’re thinking about trying this restaurant, I would highly recommend waiting until they reopen indoor seating or until the weather is nice. I went Valentine’s weekend and knew I would be sitting outside, but I expected the outdoor seating to be more well-equipped. We sat in a large tent that did have heaters, but it was still freezing out there. There was no music and hardly any people so it was awkwardly silent besides the tent flapping in the rain. It felt like we were having a picnic at a festival. By the time the food made it from the kitchen to the tent, it was cold. But I recognize that this is something that you have to expect with winter outdoor dining. Under normal conditions, this would be an amazing place. What we saw of the inside was beautiful and they have some delicious things on the menu. Given the circumstances I think the food was not worth it for the conditions, but sitting inside with warm food it would definitely have been worth the price. Would go again if I could sit inside!
