Love dining at Clydes now that they've improved their menu and food preparation is more consistent. It's always been a lovely restaurant and bar but food was a bit spotty. Still enjoy the bar and outdoor patio when weather permits but now can look forward to a nice dinner in one of the historic dining rooms as well.

Most of the food was very good. The service was also quite good. The only real downside is the noise level, even the smaller dining rooms are quite loud when more than half the tables are filled.

The food was phenomenal. However, the service was absolutely awful. We waited almost 15 minutes for someone to even take our drink order. Then we waited almost another 20 minutes for someone to bring our drinks (which was only because we flagged down a manager and requested our drinks again) keeping in mind that we only asked for water and a soda. Our waitress never came back to even check on us, and we didn’t get refills on drinks despite being on empty for 3/4 of our meal. Quite disappointing actually and even though a manager was aware that our waitress was basically missing in action and dropping the ball left and right, nothing was even offered to make things right.

This time it was not a very good experience. The eggs for the Benedict dish were not poached but boiled, and they came simultaneously with an appetizer. Therefore, both the food preparation and the service were below par. Management also decided to convert a large room to a special functions only venue, so the restaurant was overcrowded and, of course, service suffered. Finally the volume of the music in the room where we were seated was too high. Bottom line: we don't know if the restaurant is under new management, but they have to be careful going forward.

We used to love going to dinner at this restaurant. This time, the main dish was great and the other food that accompanied the were so-so. So the price was high for the fact that only part of the meal was above average. The place was very noisy (and this seems to be a trend). The wine selection is excellent and the restaurant theme is unique but the noise and the price for what we got will probably deter us from returning for quite a while.

This is a beautiful restaurant situated on farmland. The food (like all Clyde's restaurants) is consistently good and they make a mean cocktail, too. If you're looking for a place for a special occasion, I can highly recommend Clyde's Willow Brook Farm!

We have come to Clyde's for our last 4 anniversaries. This was our 60th. The 3 before this one, the waiter's all said, anniversaries are great, and the dessert was on them. I always appreciated their thoughtfulness, and
I always added to my regular tip the cost of the dessert, just for them being so kind and thoughtful. This waiter just lost out. We will always come to Clyde's. We love everything about you all. Keep up the great service.

This is a favorite restaurant of ours, but this visit was just so-so. Our server, obviously inexperienced, was slow, unable to answer some of our questions about various items and not attentive once we had been served. One of our party said her dish was wonderful and one got an old standby that was good but not outstanding. I tried something new and found it very salty. We weren't counting on any freebie, but none was offered even though I had mentioned a birthday when I made the reservation, and the server noted that she knew it was someone's birthday.

Clyde’s never disappoints food-wise. The steaks are fabulous. Appetizers are good, calamari is great. Subscribe for their specials which sometimes features lobsters or half price wine etc
The service varies by room/section
Big back barn - lots of newbie waitstaff
Cool little rooms or outside - mostly veteran waitstaff
Pretty good value price wise relative to selection and quality
Amazing setting in an old farmhouse in Ashburn right near 267 exit
