Clyde's Tower Oaks Lodge (Rockville) - Review

Miata Girl | Feb 19, 201204:58 AM

We had brunch on Sunday, and have had weekend brunch here on several earlier occasions. Unfortunately, it seems that the food has slipped some. However, the dozen oysters on the half shell sampler was wonderful and the service was very good. We asked for the manager's wine bottle special. It was not available so the waiter substituted the house label chardonnay, and it was very good (and provably a good value off the wine list).

The particulars. I had the cassoulet (listed as an appetizer) and it was truly a disappointment, really no more than beans in a sauce mixed with some duck and sausage. My companion had the buffalo fried oyster salad. Essentially fried oysters on a nice bed of salad greens, but the buffalo sauce ruined the dish as it was thick, and overwhelmed both the oysters and the salad greens. My daughter had the shrimp and grits and they were very good. And the high point was when the waiter was able to have the kitchen accommodate my granddaughter's request for a child portion waffle.

Will we go back? Probably, as it is one of the nicer restaurants nearby, but not for a while and with reduced expectations.
