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.

We were celebrating both a birthday and anniversary. We were able to converse without a lot of background noise. Also, our waiter was very patient with us since we took a lot of time to place our orders.

this is our go-to place for brunch. The mimosas are cheap, and we love the coffee cake. Two of us had eggs benedict--consistently terrific, and the other had quiche, also excellent.

Table in back was so cold- could feel cold breeze coming off the windows. Server was very average- totally not up to Clyde’s standards. Nothing wrong, just zero personality, no menu suggestions, never came and checked back. Very average

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.

They need to improve their salads. The use of arugula and other special lettuce are not fun to eat.
Need to bring back some basic salads with romaine and spinach

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.

A perfect place to get together with some friends for a delicious, unhurried brunch on a cold winter day! We especially liked that our server understood that we hadn’t seen each other in ages, and that we were not moving quickly to order. He was there when we needed him but was not intrusive.

Tower Oaks Lodge is our neighborhood best go-to spot for a reliably good meal in nice ambience. There is quite a good variety of food choices with seasonal changes. Service is always good, and wine choices by the glass have improved. We enjoyed lamb shank, burger with fruit, and a kale salad topped with salmon...yum!

Hmmm. Just a bit off their usual game this evening. Lamb shank, beautifully plated but without warmth. Salmon on the pear salad was PERFECT, but the usually bright crisp pear slices were browning. Unusual, shouldn’t have happened. Both immediately rectified by our server and management. We’ll be back...
