Contemporary Southern
Ida Claire is a funky, southern influenced restaurant & bar open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The food is notched up southern but has influences from different regions. You’ll most likely see dishes you’ve heard of before but with little twists here and there.

Our sandwiches will be served on biscuits & we’ll have chicken & waffles on every menu. Brunch is obviously southern & will be a big part of what we do. The drinks are takes on classics like the Mint Julep but revved up & including a lot of house made ingredients.

The décor has a southern influence with antebellum charm & elegant polish, stated most clearly in our reworked air stream trailer parked in the garden for VIP reservations. The whole restaurant will feel like a quirky southern aristocrat’s home…just not exactly what you might think.

Twisted Southern cuisine. Inventive take on some of the South's best recipes made with fresh, high quality products. Cocktails match beautifully with food offerings in a clever atmosphere with very good service. Can be a bit noisy but tolerable. COVID safety taken seriously.

Ida Claire is a regular part of my routine. Great place for a business lunch or fun dinner with friends. Front Burner’s best brand as far as I am concerned, and they all are high quality.

Table of 5 and one child. Food overall was good though some was overly spicy.... a little chipotle goes a long way.
Regarding the ambiance, we asked twice that the music get turned down even the 30 year olds said it was crazy loud. It was so loud you couldn’t talk without yelling across the table. More like club music, not restaurant.
Four of the meals arrived on time and one about 10 mins later. We had to flag down the wait staff often, though they were training new staff so we tried to be understanding.
In one instance the to go order we placed took so long they gave it to us for no charge.
We all agreed that we would go back now that we know which foods to order. The short ribs were very good, and the Monte Christo sandwich was pretty good, though pass on the chips.
Biscuits were awesome, fried cauliflower was not cooked enough and very spicy, the chicken and waffles are delish.
Overall a good restaurant. Would return.

We have been to Ida Claire several times and always had a gret experience. This trip was no exception. We had excellant service and the food was wonderful!

We had our date night at Ida Claire...The restaurant has an upscale yet laid back Southern decor....The menu is full of all sorts of Southern style foods with gourmet twist. The fried green tomato's were so delicious!!!! I have a frozen rose' drink that was so lovely and yummy. I recommend the pimento cheese wagu burger. It was simply the best burger I've had in a long time. My husband had the ribs and he said they were good, but didn't brag about them...If you are looking to have a fun and different cuisine experience give this place a try. Be sure to check out the powder room as well and give the old fashioned toilets a flush w/the wall chain...There is simply so much to see here from the wall of china plates to the ceiling lit up with beautiful birdcages...It is so unique and so fun...Enjoy!!!
