We are still on cloud nine from the wonderful wedding experience we had at Clyde's a week ago. We are so thankful for the wonderful event planning staff (Adrien is AWESOME and we only worked with Tess a little as she was a new addition to the team, but she's great as well!), and the outdoor terrace was just BEAUTIFUL! It was perfect for the vision I had for our wedding day, and the staff there executed everything beautifully. The indoor space also lends a lot of unique details that you probably won't find in any other venue. We also had our cake made by them, and are so happy with how it came out! All of the staff members (wait staff, bartenders, etc...) were so pleasant, and the food was absolutely delicious. A concern for me was that the food wouldn't be superb because of the sheer volume, but it was absolutely to die for and all of our guests are still raving about how good everything was. Clyde's is a hidden gem for weddings in NOVA, and we'll always have fond memories of it.

I can’t say enough about how wonderful this place is!! Tess helped us execute the most perfect wedding for my daughter. I couldn’t have asked them for any more. We had to use our rain plan for the reception but everything went off without a hitch. The food was fabulous. The head waiter Brady made sure everything came together. Check this place out!!

We recently had a joint baptism/wedding celebration for 100 people at Clyde’s in the Chandler barn. To say it was a perfect evening was an understatement. From the decor of the room, the food, the staff and the entire event, everything was absolutely wonderful. The two event planners were very flexible with us in helping coordinate our party, and they were calm, cool and collected the day before and day of our party. The event staff was so friendly, helpful, and patient with us. We had random last minute people attend, and they were quick to make table settings for our guests. The bartenders were fun and engaging the whole night, and our guests loved them! People didn’t stop raving about the food as well. Our guests with allergies were especially grateful for the attention to detail they were paid to make sure their food was prepared safely. Clyde’s should 100% be your top pick for your next event. They are pros in the hospitality industry, and more restaurants should learn from their philosophy. They Create wonderful experiences for guests so that they keep coming back. I will be telling everyone I know to book their wedding or special occasion with Clyde’s!
Capital Celtic performed live Irish music at Clyde's Willow Creek farm on St. Patrick's Day this year. Paul McGuinness and everyone on his team was incredibly friendly and professional, and the venue is absolutely beautiful. Highly recommend Clyde's Willow Creek Farm for their setting, great food and drinks, and highly friendly and professional management team.
A perfect match of clean and modern with a historic flavor that seems to have been there since the 18th century. Of course, you start out with the great food that is the hallmark of Clyde's, and then get plenty more besides. Lots of privacy for your event, and a wonderful ambiance.
As a wedding cake vendor we get to deliver to many venues and find Clyde's Willow Creek Farm to be one of our favorites. The decorum offers so much character whether you're having a small intimate wedding or larger. Melissa is very professional, personable and a joy to work with! When we come onsite with the wedding cake, the table is always ready and the staff members are always welcoming and accommodating! Perfect place to have our wedding!
