    Granted, we haven't eaten out much since the pandemic, and haven't been to Clyde's in 2 years, but I was quite surprised at how high the prices were for lunch. Also sad to see that the sliders were no longer on the menu, as I had been looking forward to them after such a long time away. Fortunately, the ambience is still as lovely and welcoming as before, but paying $60 for lunch (with 2 coffees and 1 glass of wine) is beyond what I call reasonable. To answer the question below, I would recommend the restaurant to a friend, but with a big caveat to bring a big wallet.

    I guess because there are supply issues during the pandemic and with food, help and other costs rising, Clyde’s had to raise its prices. The restaurant is moving away from the value it had offered in the past as a moderately priced restaurant with decent food.

    Our server was excellent, very personale and professional. The food was very good but very small protions on the fish dishes with no real sides. The bill was very high for the amount of food we ordered and the desserts were mediocre. NIce ambience, we often celebrate special occassions there so usually don't mind spending the money.

    Extremely long wait for food due to a large party despite other tables in our section receiving their food timely. Poor experience and as a result will not recommend to others due to the management not acknowledging the issue.

    Amazing food, but the fish does need some more seasoning/salt added for the price it’s listed at. Other than that, this is my favorite place to get Macaroni & cheese and the experience is always amazing.

    There is obviously a shortage of trained wait staff at the Lodge these days - granted it was a busy Saturday night, but the waiter assigned to our area (who also seemed to have some difficulty with English) was over-extended trying to keep track of 8 or 10 full tables, and seemed a bit lost . The food was ok - not great, but ok. A far cry from the days when Chef Eng was running the kitchen.

    This is one of our favorites. Parking is good and the tables are arranged so that you don't feel like you are on top of one another. The staff is friendly and accommodating and the food is consistently good. We like having portions large enough to take some home. We do think the menu is a bit basic and limited for dinner.

    As always we enjoyed our dining experience at Clydes Tower Oaks for Mothers Day 5/8/22. The two Moms at my table got exactly what they wanted, with Kie Lime pie for desert, and I got the delicious crab cakes with Merlow.

    The Lodge is one of our favorite go to places. The food is wonderful good value, great portions, usually enough to share. There is a good variety. We have gluten issues and a shellfish allergy. Eating out can be tricky. Not at the Lodge. We will enjoy returning again soon. Kudos to the chef and a wonderful wait staff!

    I came here for Mother’s Day. This restaurant was chosen because they had vegetarian options, my mother is a vegetarian. She ended up having to order two entrées both being sent back because one was not prepared to her modifications which the waiter stressed that he understood, the second dish which was the hibiscus tacos the filling is made out of beets. the beets had sand in them. The cocktails are very small and expensive. I asked the waiter for a recommendation between two, I chose the French 75 which ended up tasting like Robitussin; I am not exaggerating. I ordered the steak Frites with the steak being done medium well. the steak Frites come out as basically a slab of steak on top of fries with greens that are almost inedible. I asked the waiter does tower oaks not slice the steak for their steak frites and he said no which should be changed because my steak was two different temperatures medium on the right medium well in the left.Since it was Mother’s Dat it was very busy the noise level was to be expected. We ordered dessert my mother got the Keylime pie I got the praline bread pudding I don’t think they were worth it you’d be better off going to cold stone or Brusters afterwards. our waiter tried his best so this is not a complaint on him we did have a reduction in our bill because honestly our food was subpar. Maybe the kitchen staff was overwhelmed,again it was Mother’s Day and the restaurant was very busy. I used to come here back in the day for their half bottles of wine and oysters happy hour, which was always a good time. Maybe I’ll try again when it’s not as busy.

    Always amazing food. The mussels and chicken wings are my fave. The trout Parmesan was fried to perfection. I wish the strawberry shortcake dessert was a tad sweeter but the rhubarb dessert was decadent. The decorations inside and outside the Lodge are beautiful. All around, 10/10 would recommend!

    Had brunch here on a busy Mothers Day weekend Saturday. It has been one of our favorites for lunch, decided to try brunch. Best blueberry scones ever, delicious food even if the omelet was a little overcooked. Shrimp and grits were very flavorful if a little heavy on the sauce (grits themselves were delicious, I'll look for them again in other dishes). What impressed me most was the service, always good here, but I saw a manager jump in to help out a waiter who had too many tables. Despite being fully booked, it did not feel rushed. Looking forward to trying the rest of their brunch menu.

    2 of 3 dinners were fine. One burger was well done when ordered medium rare. You have removed my favorite, Cubano replaced by an inferior sandwich pork something or other which I was advised to avoid. Service uneven and being dismissed by a floor “manager” when one of our diners complained about the inordinate noise from one of the tables near us. An ambivalent dining experience.
