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.

This is an enjoyable restaurant to go to for special get togethers, like a birthday celebration. Or, if you just want to have a nice afternoon or evening out, Clyde's Willow Creek Farm is a place to keep in mind. The ambience is nice, the food very good with seasonal selections and monthly specials, and the service is great. Our most recent visit, was to celebrate a birthday. Our visit happened to coincide with a Lobster special--delicious. They have an extensive wine list with hints for choosing based on what you order, or your server is happy to make a recommendation too. There are several smaller dining rooms along with some larger ones, as well as a bar area. The smaller rooms are usually a bit quieter, if that's what you like. There are fireplaces (gas) in the smaller dining rooms to add to the ambience on a winter night.

We have made multiple trips to Clyde's Willow Creek Farm. The food and service are always super! We've hosted surprise birthday dinners and special occasion meals here as well. The staff is very helpful in making sure our meals meet all of our dietary needs. They also offer gluten free options. When we hosted a party, the chef even made a special dessert for our 2 guests who needed to have a gluten free dessert.

Always a place to visit in Northern VA. Great bar, great food fantastic setting. I've never had a bad meal and Clyde's is a great place to go alone or with a large group. Meat, Fish, Salads and desserts are all outstanding.

We have been fans of the Clyde's restaurants since 1981 when we had our wedding brunch in Georgetown. Since then they have added many locations. The most beautiful location is this one at Willow Creek Farm. It is as is says, an old farm location in a suburb of DC. They have a casual, noisy, fun bar and a more upscale quiet restaurant, which we prefer. Their wine list is not extensive, but there is an excellent variety, plus they show the vintage of the bottle, which is always a plus. And, it was reasonably priced. We shared a Caesar salad which was served with the tender romaine leave whole, drizzled with a light Caesar dressing, topped with a toasted garlic crostini. We requested extra anchovies, which they happily provided. This was delightful! My husband's salmon was cooked exactly as he ordered it and served over a quinoa cake, which was unremarkable. I had the Parmesan crusted trout, served with potatoes and seasonal veggies. The fish was excellent! It was a large piece of fish, butterflied and melt-in -your-mouth delicious! Our friends had the friend lobster. They enjoyed it very much. It would have been too much batter for me, but they were happy. And, they have an espresso machine....always the perfect way to end the evening! Whether you eat outside or inside, you are guaranteed a great meal!

My father and I were the first customers to try the fried lobster. It was wonderful. The meat was tender and succulent. We also ordered crab cakes and they, too, were delicious. The atmosphere is relaxing and fun. There is an equestrian theme throughout the restaurant. The wait staff was attentive and polite. Excellent experience.
