“Love the Decos!”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

I have frequented this place and especially love the Holiday season decos!
A large well appointed bar, many side rooms nicely decorated in a comfortable ambiance. A great place to gather with small and large groups.
But the best hidden secret is the half price raw bar after 10pm on Saturdays. great drink menu, apps, fresh salads, burgers, comfort foods too .

“Would definitely go back”
Reviewed December 3, 2013 via mobile

Our first visit after having been in this area for 3 years. Excellent bar attendant, whipped up a very creative drink that my wife loved. Service at the restaurant was friendly and above average. They are a very, very busy place on the weekends but this a great place for families and large groups to be as noisy as they want. It's almost like a very large English country side Pub. Food was very good. Definitely will go back.

“Can't go wrong, so good for a family”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

We LOVE Clyde's...about 6 years ago we lived in Columbia and always enjoyed the Clyde's there (mussels were a highlight). So when we moved back to the area we were excited to have a Clyde's nearby again...and it hasn't disappointed! We had the scallops appetizer (delicious) and the pumpkin ravioli main dish, very tasty. The service is always really nice and we appreciate how great they are with our kids too (4 and 2 years old). The 1/2 price oysters in the bar areas at certain times are also great. A definite highly recommend.

“Class and Quality!”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

My husband and I had Thanksgiving dinner here. We have had Turkey Day at restaurants before and was sceptical because the quality of the food and service tends to suffer when serving a vast number of patrons. Not so here!

From the moment you drive up, you see that this place is quality. The interior is even more so.
The service was great and the food was impressive! This is one of my favorite restaurant ever---
which says a lot as I have been a foodie for more than 30 years!

“Consistently special”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

I have eaten here many, many times with my husband for dinner, with out of town guests, celebrating with a group of girlfriends at both lunch and dinner, and with older relatives, and have never been disappointed. The food is fresh and varied, there is often a monthly special that is a good value, the service is always high quality, uncrushed, and not intrusive, and the different rooms offer a change of pace with each visit. The dining rooms are charming with special attention to lighting and keeping sound at a pleasant level. The Lodge, which is isolated from traffic and commerce, let's you know it is something special with all the twinkly lights, valet parking, and koi in a small pond. Then you choose which room--casual booths with taxidermy bear and cougar, fishing gear, the more formal "jockey" room with horse paintings and tack, the garden room, or one of the bars--all lovely. The food is the best of American cuisine-lobster, steak, crab cakes, oysters, fish--all well-prepared with attention to detail. If you like Clyde's, you will love Tower Oaks.
