Our waiter was superb! He was congenial. Quick. Most of all HAPPY. The food was beyond delicious. We raved about Tower Oaks the entire meal. Always innovative and consistent. We were celebrating Gotcha Day after 21 years with our children.

Nice atmosphere as always. Still clearly understaffed. Drinks ordered before food did not arrive until after the food. Suspect our server was just hard-pressed to keep everything straight she was so busy. Most of the food was wonderful; my ribeye was cooked perfectly, but was 40% fat and bone. Just not a particularly good cut of meat. Can get better at Costco.

A slightly surly denial of our advance request for an outdoor table (not an option in the reservation app) and we were promptly seated. Service was good. The room is beautiful. Food is somewhat conventional but well prepared and tasty. Creme was yummy. All in all a very nice experience.

Wonderful atmosphere and service! Food is excellent, only one small complaint, I ordered steak frites for brunch and the steak was slightly over cooked and a bit chewy. Calamari as mussels are excellent, lamb burger is amazing as is the French toast , reasonably priced

We dine there often, and my wife wanted to go there for her birthday. Great dinner and amazing service. Also wanted to give Anthony Brawner one of the Managers a big compliment, as he is always taking care of the guests and has an amazing personality. He makes us feel at home every time we see him.

As always food, service, parking were great. Problem was a family with very rambunctious kids ramming up and down, fighting and generally making a quiet dining experience impossible. Might be good to seat families with young kids in a separate section. There is certainly lots of room these days. This is our favorite restaurant and it’s a shame our special anniversary dinner was a bit less than perfect due to this inconsiderate family. B

Dined there for a friend’s BDay. Always a pretty setting for a special occasion. Wait staff personable, food excellent, and indoor/outdoor dining options. Both of us had steak frites which was tender and tasty. Or bread was yummy too!

My wife and I visited Tower Oaks Lodge for our 17-year anniversary. Overall our experience was fine, but the food we ordered wasn't as great as our last visit. My wife and I ordered Cedar River Farms 14-oz. New York Strip Steaks, but it was extremely tough and tasteless. I was surprised that they didn't have Baked or Sweet Potatoes as side items on their menu, so I order creamed spinach and mac-n-cheese and those items were both pretty good. Our server was friendly and provided excellent service and answered all of my questions regarding my meal. I've had better experiences when visiting Tower Oaks Lodge, but this time things just didn't measure up as hoped for on our special day. I'll definitely return for future visits, but will take a break to see if things will improve later on in the year.

this was our first time back since the pandemic. we love your restaurant and come monthly. we were sorry to see that maura's cupcake was no longer available, nor was there half price on shrimp cocktails or mimosa/ bloody marys for brunch. i got the wonderful pork chop! and my son raved about the trout parmesan! it is so good to be back again. we'll see you again on oct 18th.

Some things never change. Tower Oaks is a standby. Good food, nice environment.

Sad that crab cakes are no longer on menu due to cost and supply chain issues.

We have been frequent diners at Clyde's Tower Oak since it opened. I notice that Clyde's has gone down hill since the pandemic - portions smaller, no monthly specials, some favorite items missing. The place was half empty on Sunday night dinners. We hope it does not go downhill further - its our favorite go-to place for special occasions but food quality is definitely not the same

AJ the manager and his hosts were very una como dating when we wanted to join two out side table to fit the 8 people. Mind you his reasoning if there not being 6 ft distance was absurd since we were all together AND the other table of people was at least 12 ft away. In contrast they said we could sit at a table for 8 inside where there to wasn’t 6ft separation
First time I’ve seen a Clyde not accommodating their customers. The reasoning was absurd. For a manager to say “that’s what I was told” as a reason lacks leadership.
