When I checked in and gave my reservation name to the Hostess, she just said "go down and turn left". Since this was the second time I ate at Clyde's Tower Oaks, I turned left into the bar and could not find my dinner partner. So I went back to her, she said the same thing "go down and turn left". I told her why don't you show me where. I was really annoyed. Then I realized, I need to walk pass the bar entrance and go to another dinning room. There were at least 2 other hostesses and no line waiting!! Hope she is better trained. Thank you.

Overall, we had a great meal. There seemed to be some confusion about the type of salad one of our party members ordered (market, not garden), but it was sorted out.

Cons: We never got an offer for refills on our drinks, we had to ask for dessert menus and our server wasn't always easy to find.
Pros: We were seated immediately, the food was great, the drinks tasted fabulous and we really liked our table.

We usually go to Tower Oaks Lodge for special occasion. This time was for our anniversary which I had specified when I made the reservation on Open Table. As a result we were graciously offered our dessert!
The food was really good and our server very nice and helpful.

Setting, service, food all quite excellent. I like the hunting lodge atmosphere. Our server was handsome, friendly and efficient. Reservation was honored as was changing to a different room preferred by one of the diners. Considering the value, the prices are more than reasonable.

From time to time seemed that my sever dropped the ball, coffe maker was not working, brought a burger with pickle when we said no pickle, at one point we thought he was gone home for the day. Although I have to say he was a gentleman.

Our reservation was requested in the bar area and we were seated at the edge of the bar in the back room. Our waiter took the time and patience to accommodate all of our guests in our party. He was patient and hospitable. We enjoyed our experience and the food. We will return.

Reliable food. Interesting atmosphere. Good service

Parking is terrible. They offer valet service but we haven’t had good experiences with valet services in general so parking in their lot very limited.

Tower Oaks Lodge is the Clydes Group's largest restaurant. The elaborately produced ambience of an Adirondack is charming. The service is highly competent, and the food is consistent and good. It's not a hipster evening, but it is the perfect place for a large, multi-generational gathering.

except the TUSCAN WHITE BEAN CAMPANELLE which was pretty bland

Been a while since my last visit. Has always been a favorite of mine. But something was different this time. Change of management? Service was not as attentive as before. Restaurant officially opens at 11:00 am on Sat. Arrived at 10:45 am for 11:00 reservation. Expected to wait inside for other guests to join us, but doors stayed firmly locked until 11:00 am. Doors always opened earlier on my previous visits. It was so cold outside that we had to wait in car until 11:00 am. Table service inside was slow and inattentive. Waiter refilled my coffee only once. Disappointed.

We were treated like royalty and were just regular folks who came in with a dinner reservation for two. Manager came to see how we were doing, food was served promptly because we’d indicated we needed to leave by a certain time. Food is reasonably priced, nicely plated and very tasty. As a vegetarian, I’m not thrilled with lots of animal heads as decor but even so, this place is just gorgeous. Can’t wait to go back.

The main complaint is a greeter at the front desk. Very rude. I complained about her before. Lost 2 previous reservations. Put my party at the end of the wait list with no apologies.
She is black heavy set woman.
I now make my reservations online
