Description: When the opportunity arose for a new restaurant at Broadlands, just west of Dulles Airport in Loudoun County, Virginia, it became an ideal chance to create a truly unique destination for dining. This sprawling, rustic tavern features four bars and numerous dining rooms, making the question of where to sit much more difficult than you may have expected. In the 1980s the Clyde's Restaurant Group purchased several antique heavy timber buildings destined for demolition and more than 30 years later these barns, stables, homes, and taverns were reassembled to create the complex of dining rooms for Clyde's Willow Creek Farm. The restaurant which is located on a working farm, is inviting and comfortable, stunningly decorated with original artwork, sculpture, historic artifacts and an over-the-top collection of museum quality 18th century horse-drawn carriages - most strung from the ceilings lined with solid timber struts.

I guess I was expecting mediocre food given the size of the restaurant. What a pleasant surprise! Our server was knowledgeable and fun. Try the bruschetta (ask for extra bread). I had a Lost Rhino Brewery (local) beer which was excellent. Our wine was Black Stallion and was so good, we took another bottle to go (who knew you could... More

As soon as you see how many different rooms this place has you'll be blown away. There are multiple dining rooms and bars, including a large outdoor dining area. They spared no expense when they turned this old farm into a themed restaurant. The food is quite good, and we plan on going back since they change the menu with... More

The food was good and that’s it. As far as being a special evening the staff lacks finesse. This was the second time we got bumped from our reservation. We got a call just hours before explaining that our reservation needed to be moved to a different time because of a “special party”. This has happened on a birthday celebration... More

The food is acceptable rather than outstanding, because it suffers from the mass production necessary in a large chain restaurant. But we go back several times a year because of the pleasant ambiance of the architecture and interior decor. Clyde's stored pieces of Pennsylvania barns, etc., for this restaurant design for years before building it, and the effort was worth... More

I have dined with my family there a few times. We actually had my son's wedding rehearsal dinner there in June of this year. Although there were issues negotiating the menu, it turned out to be a nice evening with great food and service. We had a separate room and everything was handled professionally. We all went to the bar... More

I have been to Clyde's more than several times. Twice in the past week. What I saw on Saturday evening was simply disturbing. There was a group of young folks (Mid-20's) in the bar area appearing to have a good time. I was on the other side of the bar talking with a friend. I did overhear one of the... More

We really loved the place, the decoration, the atmosphere, the different areas where you could either listen to live music or have a quiet dinner. The food was great (the MEAT!) and the service, very professional: I want to go back again!

This was my first visit to this huge, rambling, beautiful restaurant. It was rocking on a Friday night. I got there early, chatted with the bartender at the bar near the entrance, and roamed the place. Wow! I recommend taking a stroll of the entire campus. The place is full of Virginia hunt country art and memorabilia. The menu was... More

I can't say enough about the food. You could order ANYTHING on the menu and have a fantastic meal. I was there recently with a group of nine, all of us very much enjoyed our meals. The service is outstanding. The restaurant is huge, so don't be dismayed if you see a full parking lot. Just to be sure though,... More
