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.

Took my mother there for a special celebration and we had a great time. The staff were friendly & explained all the safety precautions they had in place. They were very careful, everything was clean, & we felt very comfortable. The food was great, the heaters kept us warm, & it was such a nice experience for my Mom who has not been anywhere since the pandemic began.

Love Tower Oaks. Reception host was very accommodating Our server was great! One thing.......it bothers me when dessert or coffee is being served where the table is full of empty dishes.
The tent was ok. Cold air came through the bottom but we survived. We appreciate that they were opened!

OMG, it’s two days later, and I’m still reminiscing about our lunch at Clyde’s Tower Oaks. I hadn’t visited since my move back from Dallas. I remembered why I loved this location so much. The food, service, and ambience are still great. Can’t wait to host my next event at this Clyde’s.

My family and I had not been since Covid hit and to my surpirse the tables and booths were not that clean. We were a party of 5 and they tried to squeeze us in a booth. They did not have a good attitude when I asked to sit in the main dining room and said there were no tables when it was practically empty. We ended up sitting in the room next to the bar to my surprise it was packed at the bar. There was so much people that I was not comfortable-there was no social distincing. I will not go back, I was very disappointed.

Everything was fine except the turkey was salty and dry. Also, they should have more steak options for the Thanksgiving menu. The 6 oz filet mignon was not really a good size for a gentleman. Other than it being a holiday and we were happy that they were open, the waitress and service were very good. I have dined there many times but would rethink going for a holiday again.

I had the turkey dinner. For some reason, it was not as good as usual. Too much seasoning in the turkey. The mashed potatoes and stuffing were tasty. Our waiter was very helpful.

Great ambience sitting on the front porch by the pond. Our waiter may have been recently hired, as they didn’t seem comfortable. They were polite and got our order correct without the need to write anything down.

The outdoor porch was charming, we wanted to be outdoors. The only issue was that the heaters gave off a natural gas oder. Hopefully that odor can be eliminated in some way.

I think this establishment needs to do something about service quality ASAP - it was substantially lacking. We waited 10 minutes for someone to come over before I had to get up and search for someone to take our order. The server apologized and took our order but we never saw her again until the end of the meal when she came to get plates and drop off the check (another individual delivered the food and that was the only time anyone came over the entire meal). I had to get up and take my glass to the bar to get a refill. The food was good, not great, but I've gotten better table service at a fast food restaurant.

Outdoor COVID 19 dinner is problematic. The lodge has you go inside to check your reservation, really stupid. It is dark not adequate lighting in approaching the outside tent. One of us fell. WE won’t go in the evening again, only in daylight hours.

Otherwise service was good staff were masked and food delivered quickly and it was fine. Fair value.

Came for a special occasion. Service was a bit lacking despite letting them know, but they might not have been able to be too attentive for COVID reasons.

Food was excellent. The cod melted in your mouth, although it could have used a bit more lemon citrus taste to it. I had expected more of a lemony taste from the description, but didn’t really get much of that until I added some juice from lemon wedges I requested.

Cream of crab soup was thin, but tasty. Just the right amount of Old Bay included.

A little on the pricey side, but the atmosphere was quiet, elegant, and great.

In this time of COVID, Clyde's has established a beautiful, well-spaced outside dining area. You forget you are eating in a parking lot. It is great. Pens to sign the credit card receipts are provided in white paper wrappers having been sanitized. Plants are scattered throughout the spacious tented area. Service with a smile behind the mask. Perfect.

Our food was excellent. Service was ok. I did not like being in the tent, it was too noisy and I felt too far away from fresh air. Had I been there before I would have asked for a table outside the tent, they looked so inviting! Maybe I will try again.

As usual, another wonderful lunch inside the beautiful tent.
Iveth was our server. She was very attentive but I think she should have had a 2nd server to help. Iveth was very professional, personable & maintained all CDC Covid-19 Guidelines. Thank you!

Everything was good except the hostess, she wasn't helpful when we arrive there, she told us there was no reservation to seat outside, the frustration of my group was very noticeable that a gentleman came to solved the problem, he arranged a table outside for us.

This was our first outing to a restaurant since April and were worried about the precautions taken to protect the diners. Tower Oaks did an excellent job of keeping us safe and the food was excellent.
