Description: Tucked away in a 22-acre nature preserve just fifteen minutes from Georgetown, Tower Oaks Lodge has the look and feel of an authentic Adirondack lodge. Divided into four dining rooms, the Lodge contains a vast collection of art and artifacts such as vintage canoes and row boats, and antique saddles and trophies. Chef Jeffery Eng, formerly of 1789 Restaurant, presides over the kitchen team featuring a menu of great American saloon-style food. The Lodge offers the freshest seafood, locally-grown seasonal vegetables, pastas, and salads, as well as Clyde's classics such as cheeseburgers and chili.

“Crabby!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

It's Crab Cake month at Clydes! (July). Don't miss these benchmark crab cakes. Compare them to any other crab cake in Maryland and don't even bother trying crab cakes in any other state!

Clyde's presentation on a corn and tomato salad is the epitome of summer. The service was excellent, as usual.

“Good and creative American menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

My husband and I live closer to another Clyde's restaurant, but will drive out of our way to go to the Tower Oaks location because their menu is more creative and offers a wider choice of entrees. This is a classic American restaurant that responds to seasonal specials, offering a different featured item at a reduced price each month. This month it's crab cakes, one of my favorites, and it's a generous portion with either one or two crab cakes.
The ambience at Tower Oaks is also remarkably cosy considering the vast size of the whole place. It is divided into separate rooms with different environments. Even if you don't love animal heads looking down on you, be sure to check out the Adirondack Lodge room in the back - it is really special

“Nice theme, but a bit average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

Had a nice business dinner with colleagues. The theme is outdoors and woodsy, but shows sign of age. Everything was
Very average, but suitable. Food was good, desert was good. Overall good.

“Stunningly beautiful restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Well, what a hidden gem sitting in the woods of Rockville. Clydes Tower Oaks may be one of the most beautiful restaurants I have ever eaten in. Food is typical Clydes - good, solid, great value for the price. Staff was busy but exceedingly polite and friendly. Will go again when I can simply sit and enjoy the venue.
