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.

Went for our anniversary, had a cute cozy vibe. It wasn’t too loud from the other customers. Our waitress was very nice. The food was pretty good and we liked our drinks. Our desert also was on the house for our anniversary which was a very nice surprise.

In this covid-19 world right now, I appreciate the addition of outdoor seating. They had porch seating and parking lot seating. We were in the parking lot, socially distanced tables, wait staff was masked and gloves and service was great. Food was very good too!

Love this place! The food is always delicious - no matter what your choice. The wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the entrees, etc., i.e. the ingredients, preparation methods, which is very important if one has an allergy problem. The ambience of being in a mountain lodge surrounded by trees and a stream with koi provides a peaceful, relaxing feeling.

Went to dinner Friday night. We sat outside but inside the tent. The tables were spaced out and we felt safe. We had a very nice waitress who knew both the drink menu and the food menu. We both had the lobster special but with broccolini. Everything was delicious and it was a very relaxing atmosphere. The service was excellent and the lobster was great.

Five of us enjoyed a very nice dinner on their new makeshift patio under a tent outside. The food is always very good, as is the service. And we enjoyed the atmosphere. The tables are spaced pretty far apart, so we felt safe and fairly private. And the lights and plants contributed to a very nice ambiance.

Steamed lobster was very good. French fries were so-so, not crispy.
Service was good.
Ambience, ok; nothing special. We requested outdoor seating. Our table was on the front porch.
$21.99 price for lobster was very good!

Sitting on the porch, listening to the brook and little waterfall is a delight. The service and COVID- protections are excellent.

I ate here with my mother and her friends to celebrate a birthday. We were seated at a large table and not right next to each other which is good for social distancing. Our server was very nice and constantly checked with us to make sure everything was all right. My mother and her friends had the lobster special which they really liked. The restaurant does an excellent job with following health safety. There is even outside dining if you don't feel comfortable being inside.

I hope Tower Oaks will be getting heaters for outdoor dining in the Tent. It was a little cold on Sunday night but we loved being able to eat outdoors.

Very nice ambiance. One of my favorite restaurants. Other than the very loud child across from us it was quiet. Food was great. Next time I want to get the Steak Frites.
