We have been to this restaurant many times but our visit on Friday, October 12th was very disappointing. The waiter wasn't up to par on what we have had in the past. He was slow and appeared to be very attentive to his other tables except us. It was my husband and I's date night and because of the terrible service from this waiter, we will think twice about going back.

Employees are exceptional - from Courtney who greeted me to Sam our waiter the lunch was absolutely wonderful. I would especially like to thank a waiter who helped make the event perfect. One of my guests was a WWII POW who was in the same German prison camp as my Father. ( Which was the reason the first time I met he and his daughter at a restaurant.) When he asked the waiter if he could possibly have Eggs Benedict, which was not on the menu, the waiter immediately and politely said no. Never even tried. I told him the next time we would instead go to Clyde’s for his EB. I failed to check the menu until that morning. When I arrived I explained to Courtney and asked if it were possible. She asked a waiter who in turn checked with the Chef and made it happen. You have no idea how happy you made a 96 year old WWII POW. He ate every single bite of it. Everything was absolutely wonderful. Please thank these individuals and the waiter who made it happen. Courtney and Sam will know who he is. Exceptional employees! And the food is ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.

As always, food and service are top notch here. Only minor disappointment tonight was we arrived behind a group of 20, and it took a long time for our food to be served. Our server was exceptionally good though and took good care of us in spite of the wait.

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.

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!
