At the time I made the reservation I mentioned that we would be coming to celebrate my daughter’s 16th Birthday. I was disappointed to see that this restaurant did not do anything to help recognize her birthday as other restaurants do either through a complimentary dessert or a discounted meal. Also, my Mother ordered the salmon and she said is was extremely salty. With regards to the service provided to us, it felt as though our waiter really didn’t want to serve us.
All in all our experience was very mediocre.

For a double birthday celebration and a unique family reunion situation, I could not of imagined a more perfect setting. I not only do not have a single negative, but more importantly I can say that everything far exceeded my expectations! It was perfect. I actually can't remember a dining event as spectular as this. Thanks Andy and the hostess and the reservation person for making everything come together. Members of my party kept asking me "who do you know to get such service, etc?" Thanks Clyde's!

Food was good, but my daughter did not like the type of pasta used for the Mac & cheese she ordered. It used to be our favorite dish.

We've been fans of Clyde's establishments throughout the DC area for years but had never made it to their Willow Creek Farm location. We made a late reservation on a Saturday and made our way there - and we're sure glad we did. First off, the atmosphere is wonderful...true comfort & homely. Next, our waitress was absolutely fantastic - she was helpful, attentive, entertaining, and above all, genuine in making sure we had a nice evening. To top things off, the food & drinks were excellent.
We went with a goal of having a relaxed evening in a nice place with comfort food, and Clyde's checked every box. We will undoubtedly be back!

We were a party of eight celebrating family birthdays . The room that we were in gave the perfect amount of privacy and we never felt rushed. The atmosphere, with the beautiful murals and the lit fireplace added to our festivities. Everyone at Clyde's made us feel special and the food and specialty beverages were terrific!

The food was great, but food service was so slow. They gave us 50% off the check because it was so bad.

The atmosphere is lovely and the service is excellent and professional. The food good but not great and the portions are small for the price. I ordered the special lobster and it seemed meager (and a bit mushy in parts.) The coffee cake that they bring to the table looked delicious but I couldn't eat it because of an egg allergy; an alternate bread (e.g. piece of baguette) would have been appreciated.

Clyde's is always first class, this location is even more fun with the farmhouse restored and the fireplaces burning. Would love to try the outdoor space. Go and enjoy.

Had a family dinner at Clyde's and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Food, service and ambiance was all very good. Have always enjoyed taking out of town guests here because of all the beautiful rooms and bars but now go there for excellent food as well.

Food is always reliably very good, but service falls short a lot of times. Perhaps the restaurant needs more wait staff? Tonight once again was big gaps waiting for service for the waitress to take our order, when we needed something and in between courses. I would have rated the restaurant a lot higher if the service were better since the food is always tasty.

It's been awhile since we've been back here but try to keep the restaurant in our rotation. Was disappointed with the lobster bisque as it had lobster flavor but no actual detectable lobster in the dish. The service was slower and less attentive than usual which was unexpected given how early it was in the evening. Hopefully just a fluke and not an indication of the quality at this location.

As always the atmosphere was charming and the building historically impressive. We arrived 30 minutes early to a nearly empty space but were denied entry because "all the 630 and 645 reservations had to be seated before we were and they hadn't arrived yet." Ah, why? They were not going to give away our table so why make us wait? It was idiotic but the hostess, who never bothered to look at us, was immovable. This is bad management. The food was good. The service wildly friendly, chatty to excess and slow and forgetful. We waited for everything, sometimes to no avail. We never got our water and waited so long for dessert we got up and found someone to take our payment and only caught it to go on the way to the door. Not our best experience there. It was an amateurish performance and unworthy of such an impressive venue.

After making an early reservation. Clyde’s still seared is in the bar. We were unable to talk to each other. We could have sat in the bar with no reservation

Overall very good. Huge location with a lot of character. Husband is picky about his steak and said the cowboy ribeye was excellent. I had the crab cake which was on the small side but very good. Chile and autumn salad also both delicious.

We absolutely LOVE going to Clyde’s for brunch. They have a really wonderful brunch menu on both Saturday and Sunday. AND, on Saturday their burgers are half price between 10:00 am and 3:00 pm. Their burgers are some of the best we have eaten. Great variety of brunch choices; they also bring out their delicious coffee cake, and the service is top notch. If you have room for dessert, those choices are also incredible. We shared a slice of Pumpkin Cheesecake and it was heavenly!!! We will keep coming back.
