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.

“Tasty food and excellent service”
Reviewed October 18, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Tower Oaks is another Clyde's restaurant with predictably reliable food and service. The menu has many choices, there are 2 large bars, and all of the staff are incredibly professional and nice. What makes Tower Oaks stand out for us is the location and the decor -- you really do feel like you are at a hunting lodge out in the woods, even though it's in the middle of an area that is dominated by office buildings.

“Tower Oak Lodge”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

This has been a favorite of ours. Close in Rockville, but one feels as if one's completely off the beaten path, thanks to the creative landscaping surrounding the restaurant. Like most of the Clyde's restaurants, the food is first class American food reasonably priced. Good for both lunch and dinner, good for couples, good for family, good for business. ANd though I've never been there solo, it's probably good for that too.

“Good food, good service, wonderful setting”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

I love eating at this restaurant. The menu is always been updated and offering new dishes and monthly and seasonal specials. The latest addition was a bit of a surprise-fried pickles appetizer. It was served hot and fresh with a dipping sauce. Crispy light fried breading on the outside and cool crispy pickle slices on the inside.
We all had this month's special (lobster). It was sweet and firm and served with delicious sides.
Past favorites include caesar salad with meat; parmesan crusted halibut, etc.
Consistently good food and service. I have been here frequently and it is unusual to have poor service or food that is not prepared well.
Taking into consideration the quality and variety of the food, the good service and the atmosphere, it is a good value.
Love being able to make reservations ahead.
Go and enjoy.

“Tower Oaks works for me”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Tower Oaks, a member of the Clyde's family of restaurants, is a comfortable American restaurant with many rooms, booths and tables. Good food, satisfying to the picky eater to those who want a little kick/zest. I like the crab cakes, but truthfully have never had anything that I didn't like. Relatively decent prices, but good to call ahead as sometimes crowded.

Just off of 270, but you need to know it's there because there are no signs directing you to the Tower Oaks Lodge, just off of Wootton Pkwy in Rockville, MD. Everything from the appetizers to the desserts was fabulous. There is something for everyone - the finicky eater to the seafood gourmet.
