Tower Oaks Lodge
Great place to catch up with a dear friend. Wait staff does not rush you, even after the check is paid!!
When the restaurant gets busy, the servers tend to disappear as opposed to there being almost too intrusive when the dining room is not full. The food is consistently above average but not great. The ambience in the rooms is consistently good.
Our waiter was great, very knowledgeable and personable. Ordered 2 entrees. Crab cakes were quite good. The steak portion of the steak & squash salad, however, was not cooked to order. Steak was way under cooked. A few of the rarer pieces were sent back to cook a bit more and they were returned burnt and not eatable. Waiter wanted to offer us something else but we declined. Though we didn’t request, in the end the steak entree was taken off the bill. Overall we were satisfied with our visit to Clyde’s Tower Oaks.
Always a nice place for dinner. Good food and a pleasant and knowledgeable staff.
Consistently impeccable service and cannot get a better crab cake this far from the beach. Fried pickles make a shreat southern start to any meal here and should not be missed. Prices slightly higher than average-expect dinner for two to cost about $100 but worth it for food quality, timely seating with reservation, easy parking, and a lodge like feeling with warm fireplaces.
We had such an amazing waitress...she helped make our experience truly wonderful.
Wonderful place to go with family members and with friends...wonderful way to spend catch up with friends and have special conversations along with eating very good food.
The brunch was excellent, a little pricey, but it is somewhat justified by the food.
Our server (Elise) was great - fulfilling all our required needs, without being overbearing. We love the Stash tea selection, coffee cake, side of Brussels sprouts (the pomegranates in it make it amazingly delicious) and shrimp and grits. The Juevos Rancheros were pretty overpriced, but everything else was great.
The Lodge always has excellent food and they didn't disappoint. Our waiter was inpectable - courteous, professional and timely. Of note, new focaccia bread was a big hit at our table. The 4 stars come from my steak being slightly over cooked, not to the degree that I returned it. Yet, I was not able to fully enjoy my "rare" consumption of red meat.
What was surprisingly disappointing was the hostess. She was rude and short when I questioned the delay, as it was 15 minutes past our reservation time. Turns out she dailed/entered the wrong phone number and therefore, I was not receiving the page - no apology after it became readily apparent who was responsible for delay.
My husband and I came here for dinner. Although the restaurant and bar area were extremely busy we were served our meals and beverages in a timely fashion. All items came out as ordered and our server was very polite and professional.
Always a great time and I can always expect good service
I found my steak dinner to be overpriced for what it was. $40 got me an 8 oz. filet mignon. It was a nice piece of meat bit a trifle too salty. It is served with butter and sauces. A little too much, I thought. Included in the price is one side dish, but salad is not a choice. Also, as we learned on the way out, bread will only be served if you ask. I find this extraordinarily chintzy, especially when you don’t know you have to ask on the first place. Service can be uneven. This visit okay but it has been awful in the past. I go to Towe Oaks because the decor is entertaining for my grandson, not for a fine meal.
Our server, Michael k. was outstanding. Food was very good. Had a great time.
We will be back.
Great table service. Server was very attentive.
Michaela offered great personable service.
Amazing hidden secret! Tower Oaks has become one of my favorite places! Outstanding service and the chefs are incredible! Sauces , bread, and dessert second to none. Every dish I have tried has been top notch. Great management team! Attentive but not intrusive. Lovely atmosphere!
It's a hit and miss type of thing at Tower Oaks. Sometimes the service is outstanding, some times not so good. Our last waiter seemed like she was doing me a favor waiting on us. We could not find the usual oysters we order (Wellfleet). We asked the waiting to recommend something similar. She seemed to have got upset when we asked her about that. The oysters we chose were horrible. Because we go to Tower Oaks frequently, so we were looking for something different. So when we asked the waitress whether there were any specials, we were chastised. She emphatically stated: whatever it is on the menu is what we serve. Period! Come on, let's be a little nice. The whole evening was filled with events like that. No bread was bought to the table, and had to keep asking for things over and over again. It was annoying. We are looking for another restaurant in the area.
Overall had a wonderful and great experience. Unfortunately my wife got sick immediately afterward. We determined it may have been the spinach since that was the only thing on her plate I did not try. None of the rest of us had any issues (kids and mother-in-law). We would still very much recommend this place because the service and staff were excellent. No worries as my wife felt better by the next day. This was my first time coming here and I would definitely return.
It was great
Best happy hour. Sat in booth at bar. Made a full meal out of it. Half price raw bar, $5 off burgers, $2 off apps, $3 off wines. Always great food, service and atmosphere.
Food was great, had the catfish which was presented in such an attractive way. What I had an issue with is the silverware and the glassware were presented very dirty. Had to change out twice and have them wash new dishes. Otherwise it was good.
Loves it’s evry timz
Food was amazing though the wait for it was about an hour ... The server apologized and offered dessert on the house after the wait I did not want to wait another hour for dessert. The restaurant itself was great .
Great ambiance, great service and value
Everything was amazing for our Valentines Day dinner!
Excellent food and excellent service. Our server, Elise (I hope I've spelled her name correctly) was excellent.
Awesome time the waiter was on point!
Good food, great service, reasonable prices for the ambience and fare.
Menu not as good as used to be. Had the salmon dinner which was cooked fine but lacked taste. The sides did not appeal so switch wit haddock dinner. Not many people eat swish chard and Brussels sprouts. Dessert was tasty but hard to mess up brownie sundae. Other desserts were not appealing.
Elisse was fantastic......PLEASE try to get more people like her!!! Food was really good too! Thanks for a GREAT Valentines experience!
Great place to celebrate a special occasion such as an anniversary, birthday etc. The place feels like you are out in the country.
The raw bar oysters were yummy!
All was very pleasurable. The desk people acknowledged our presence and wished us a happy anniversary, as did others along the line. The waitress was very cordial and pleasant. We were watched over many times. The other item that impressed us was the amount of food. We could not eat all that food at one time. We had to take half home. The food was delicious and the price surprised me, that is, it was respectable. I have been there before, but when someone else was paying the bill. It was my turn. We enjoyed our night at Clyde's.
This restaurant was chosen with the specific wish of "ambience" in mind... and in delivered in spades!!! Never have I been in a space so full yet so quiet - kudos to the interior designer.
The food and service was definitely "old school ", but exactly what was called for as this was our Valentine's Day dinner. We were also amazed at the extent of this place; three areas plus bar - again, you could hear each other whisper! We will definitely revisit... probably as a holiday treat Easter/Thanksgiving/Christmas!!!
The food is amazing and the service great. Servers help out with any questions you have. The price of food is really fair when taking into account how great the quality is.
The food was terrific this visit. I wish that there were more dessert options for lactose intolerant people.
Love this place especially for a birthday celebration. Ambiance is the best and our server Eugene took such good care of us. Food can be hit or miss but I still highly recommend Clyde's of Tower Oaks.
Great service and food was very good.
We have enjoyed Tower Oaks Lodge many times. Tonight we had the fried pickle appetizer and shrimp cocktail with were both very good. I ordered the French Dip and had to send it back. It was rubbery. I then asked for a tuna melt which was not very good. The waiter may have had too many tables, he was not very attentive. My husband's fish was ok. We probably need to stick to meat dishes.
As usual,an excellent place to dine.There are other great restaurants I’ve gone to,but always seem to wind up at Tower Oaks for a great dining experience every time!!!!
