Call and ask our event managers about smaller private spaces for your lunch or dinner with friends or family. Exclusive space, very limited interaction with staff and other patrons. Rooms fit 8-14 and 8-16 guests. Call 571-209-1200 and ask for Tara.

Mask Usage
We know it is no fun to wear a mask while enjoying a night out, but our staff's safety is no laughing matter.
We require all guests to wear a mask while moving about the restaurant, and when speaking to Clyde's employees.
Masks have been a hot topic, with passionate views on all sides. With our team and their families' health at stake, we must err on the side of caution. We hope you will understand and look forward to the day, hopefully soon, when we can all throw our masks in the trash.

It was excellent and we felt very safe with all of their covid precautions in place. The filet + mashed potatoes were perfect.

This was our second time to Clydes's at Willow Creek. The server was friendly and pleasant. The food was very tasty and what we expected. The price was fair. For Covid concerns, the booths were separated and the staff was vigilant with their masks.

We have been going to Clyde's since it opened. Throughout the pandemic, it has been the best and safest restaurant. The management is superb. Paul, the GM, is a hands on individual who oversees ALL that is taking place. He has trained his managers, event planner(s) to provide the best customer service. Our favorite place to go. Treated like family.

Clyde’s has quickly become one of our favorite restaurants. Gregory, our server, was well informed, knowledgeable, friendly and timely in providing service. The filet mignon was the best I had ever had, well seasoned and melt in your mouth tender! We thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Salmon was raw and was not supposed to be! This is the third time this has happened. They are always willing to fix the mistake but the rest of the table finishes their dinner and I have to wait fir mine to be cooked properly.

Wonderful dinner at Clyde's! One of our favorite spots and it continues to perform. There was a time when we only went there for the ambiance and after dinner drinks/desserts in the bar. Now we go for the excellent food as well. We both had fish -- new cod on menu and the salmon dinners. They were delicious! Even saved a little room for some cheesecake which topped off a wonderful overall experience.

The food and ambience is good. The one downfall to this place right now is how obstructive their COVID procedures are. You either spend the entire dinner putting your mask on and off or you barely ever see your server. I get taking the precautions, but other restaurants are implementing safety protocols much more effectively. Until COVID is over, I’ll probably choose another place to eat.

We visited to celebrate my birthday. The wait staff was good - did not rush to have us order and did not seem to mind that we lingered after coffee. I had the filet and the cook was perfect; I also enjoyed the broccoli; however, their fries were meh. My husband had the Miso Cod - it was good, but too sweet. I had hoped to get a dessert to round out the BD celebration, but the selection was small (only 4 to choose from) and I wasn't overly impressed with any of those choices. Overall, we had a good meal and nice time.

Our waiter William was super wonderful. He is a GEM and we hope to be back and have him serve us.

PS Wearing the mask in and out is bad enough but really ~ when the servers come? All the other restaurants we frequent NEVER ask this of us. I think you should rethink this policy. William was the highlight. The masks were the lowlight!

Loved Clyde's! The building itself was huge, old, and beautiful inside. If you love history, antiques, and/or colonial architecture you will love this. We were seated at a table in one of the MANY dining areas, in a room with exposed beams and an exposed stone wall (the original exterior of the main building), in comfortably worn leather club chairs near one of the huge wooden bars. The interior was a major part of the experience, with stone fireplaces and old hardwoods throughout. Unfortunately there were a multitude of booths in many of the dining rooms which cheapened the feel a bit, but not enough to take away from the overall character. The menu itself was rather limited, but our food was very good. They serve a fried calamari appetizer that by itself would just have been a basic calamari like anywhere else, but was truly set apart by a sweet red chili sauce. Decent wine list although a limited by-the-glass selection. They have outdoor seating and a great brunch menu so we will definitely return in the warmer weather.

We found the outdoor hostess fairly dense having no common sense. Focused on telling us why she couldn’t accommodate us and the cold we were feeling by having someone move the gas heater near our table, rather than just turning on the electric heat lamps.

Unfortunately and to our dismay, I had to subsequently call the manager around to get the job done and turn on the electric heat. lamps, which took care of the problem.

Probably the most unaccommodating and unpleasant experience we’ve ever had at Clydes. Suggest removing this person from your staff for general stupidity.
Thank you.

My two friends and I had brunch here yesterday and it was wonderful, as usual. Two of us had the cheeseburger & fries (which were outstanding) and the birthday girl had the Steak Wedge Salad with ranch dressing which she enjoyed thoroughly. We shared the crab & artichoke dip which was devine. Excellent social distancing and masks were worn when needed and had excellent service, which is why we drive from Oakton to eat here .... it's always fantastic!

Everything was OK besides stupid COVID19 policies. Everyone knows that we've been played with this "fake" pandemic. The virus is not any worse than a regular flu. Normal states took out these silly restrictions, but not in Virginia and not in Clyde's restaurants.
Too sad that I will have to stop going there for a while until they get to normality, with respect to their customers.

Required to put your face mask back on every time we “conversed” with the waiter. Certainly an annoyance. Furthermore told that wearing the face mask for all conversation with the waitstaff was the “only way” to keep the establishment open. Except for the fact that nearly every other restaurant locally does not require the same.
