Great food and service. Another family close by let their kids run all over though and someone should have said something. It ruins the experience for all. Not necessarily the restaurant’s fault but they should be aware and say something.

Good food. I would have enjoyed greater vegetable selections with min course. Bread and pie served cold. But, overall this is restaurant we enjoy.

I often choose Tower Oaks Lodge because I live nearby, the atmosphere is relaxing, the food is good with enough options, and it's quiet enough for good conversations. I look forward to the fireplaces adding to the ambiance. So far, Nov. 22, they have not been on. Also, this week one in our party had a birthday, the complimentary desserts were perfect! Also, occasionally I have asked to exchange a side and it's always accommodated cheerfully!

We met a dear friend for dinner. We've been many times. Oysters are delicious. Wine list has some decent values. Good service. Noise level was fine until the five infants at other tables started crying. Food is generally well made. Make a reservation. Will return

I am not usually disappointed with the food at Tower Oaks, but my dinner was less than stellar. I ordered fish which was very nice, but the string beans were not cooked at all and the potatoes were pretty hard as well. The dinner arrived very quickly which made me think after not being able to put a fork in my beans that the kitchen was being rushed. Too bad, because it was not crowded in the restaurant.

Tower Oaks Lodge is a unique restaurant. Bringing a magnificent Maine log structure to the Maryland suburbs and decorating it in authentic furnishings including stuffed animals and canoes, oars, Indian fair is sometning you don't see everyday. It is one lf our local favorites. However, this time the food wasn't up to Clyde's normal standards.

Loved the fall menu. Went for our anniversary. The service was great and the menu was varied. My only comment was we were in back room with the bar and a large party next to us so it was a bit loud. I did put on the reservation what we were celebrating so I would have thought a quieter room would have been offered. Otherwise it was a wonderful night.

MIchael, our server, was amazing! Salmon was not cooked as ordered and needed to be re-made. This was a friend's catch up and we were not rushed at all during our 2.5 hour dinner. Love the venue. Loved the happy birthday dessert at the end to celebrate!

The food is great albeit not quite what is was when they had Chef Michelle. But that was many years ago.

For this visit I requested seating in a particular room when I placed my reservation and my best guess is that this request was ignored given that we were seated in another room entirely.

The fries were lukewarm, like it had been sitting around a while. The lobster was just barely warm, not sure if that's intended. Lobster pie was good. Not sure why they asked if it was a special occasion, as nothing special was offered or done. Had to wait at least 20 minutes for the bill, even after the manager asked us if we were waiting for it.

Once again a top-flight experience at Tower Oaks. There were four of us, seated in a booth in the Great Room, as requested. The restaurant was very busy, but our server was friendly, patient, and attentive. I ordered the duck confit salad with figs; not only did it taste wonderful, but the presentation (on a slate plank) was terrific. Tower Oaks is not perfect, but it is way up there in terms of reliability, taste, and atmosphere.
