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.

“Not a bad place to eat in ashburn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

The vibe here is a little more upscale than most restaurants / bars you find in Ashburn. The food here is good I recommend the calamari for your app it's quite good for northern va. Also at night this places turns into a nice bar with outdoor seating. Nice vibe leaning towards an older crowd but recently has seen a younger crowd (23-26) come in.

“Lively and warm environment to entertain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This reassembled old barn and carriage house is warm and inviting and a great place to meet and greet in an area of chain restaurants. The food is a mixture of good and nice try. Grits were warm and creamy but shrimp were overdone and lacking in snap. Steak was was delicious but sides were not up to par. House wine is a nice value. Dinner for 4 with 2 bottles of house wine under $200.
Well done!

“The worst Clydes I've been to”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Love the location, the atmosphere, the building and decor but the food and service were terrible. I've been here a few times but each time they drop a peg. I'm a Washingtonian and have visited several of Clydes in the area from MD, DC & VA. I had hoped this one closest to my home would provide the same wonderful experience. I have been so disappointed - it's basically bad service of their inexperienced wait staff. That ruined everything - from taking almost 10 minutes to greet us, offer any specials, offer any bread, no check backs for drink refills or if we needed anything else, no table clearing = no tip. I dislike bad service from staff especially those who also act as if the customer is bothering them. If i return to Clydes it will be to other locations.
