Tower Oaks Lodge Ratings and Reviews
I have visited Tower Oaks on multiple occasions over the years and have never had a problem. Last evening, we were there to celebrate a birthday and it was the worst experience thus far. First off, the hostesses did an amazing job as always. Once seated, that’s where things went downhill. We ordered the Calamari and it came out very rubbery. Next once our food came out, all of our orders had an issue. The crab cakes and Salmon were undercooked and un seasoned. They brought out buttered noodles for our son when we clearly asked for Mac and cheese, finally my open faced Turkey sandwich was probably the worst I’ve ever eaten. Even with the gravy, it was dry and lacked flavor. While I love the Ambiance that Tower Oaks once had, we felt rushed and as indicated, the food was just not up to par. Should we have asked for a manager? Yes, but it really wouldn’t have changed anything because the evening was ruined. Would I go there again? Probably. It could have been an off night for the kitchen, but I can’t make any excuses.
We planned an early (3:30) Sunday dinner with friends. Tower Oaks has become our regular spot to get together because we always have an overall great experience. The food was excellent, service excellent and ambiance lovely. Décor just beautiful for a cozy Winter dinner visit with friends.
Tower Oaks Lodge is one of those places that never fails to meet expectations. You know what you're getting and you know it's going to be good. I particularly appreciate how accommodating everyone is to the senior clientele. I can bring my 84 year old aunt in her wheelchair and I know they're going to make her as comfortable as possible.
Fine food, attentive service, and enjoyable ambiance make this one of our favorite spots for lunch or dinner with friends. We like to test the quality of cuisine by partaking of Maryland crab cake. Plenty of crab meat in big chunks makes this one of the finest crab cakes we have found nearby. We like to order from the dinner or lunch menu - where some of the finer dishes can be found. Unfortunately, only the brunch menu was available before 4 PM because it was a weekend days. This menu has no dinner fare at all and a limited lunch selection. Thanks to the waiter, we managed to find interesting fare and enjoyed it. Still, we resolved to time our next visit at dinner or at a weekday lunch to avoid getting stuck with the brunch menu. There was a selection of oysters, the option to mix and match, and all were great. I had just ordered my oysters when the waiter mentioned that they were half price that day. They proved to be truly delicious! One of us had a wonderful beer from Sam Adams. A glass of Cabernet, however, proved less memorable.
I just love Clyde’s Tower Oaks. Great food at reasonable prices. Tonight we both had the haddock. Served with rice pilaf and green beans almandine. I swapped out the rice for truffled mac-n-cheese for a small upcharge. Fish was done to perfection service attentive but not obtrusive. Overall a great dinner.
Tower Oaks is in a great location and was chosen to accommodate folks coming from Frederick, DC and VA. We were celebrating a retirement and the server allowed sufficient time for us to catch up and the cake slice for Janet was very thoughtful.
All said their food was good.
