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.

Another totally satisfying dining experience at Ida Claire’s. Brunch, lunch or dinner, my expectations are always met. And don’t forget the biscuits.

My SIL brought our kids for brunch and it was amazing. Everything was hot and delicious. The service is always impeccable and the food is filling. It’s still the same ambiance but you can tell they change things up and clean really well. The thing that stood out to me on this particular visit was the fresh juices. I can’t tell you how it’s touches like this that make the experience all the more memorable.

The food is ALWAYS amazing. I know that if I'm going to Ida Claire, I will leave with a VERY happy belly. That being said, the only possible negative I could give, is that it's too loud (music). Be sure to get a Whose That Lady, always divine! (Like a spicy mimosa) And the biscuits? Nooomygawd. Nothing can compete with this place.

We went to celebrate a friends graduation and Ida Claire did not disappoint! First off, the decor is so cute, especially the outdoor area and airstream you can reserve. The lovely woman who helped us, Summer, was the sweetest ever!! When I told her we were celebrating a graduation, she got all the staff members to sign a card for her which was so incredibly thoughtful. Last but not least, the food. I’m pretty decisive when it comes to ordering but I could not choose what to order because all the options sound AMAZING! We went with the duck hash and red velvet pancakes that were to die for! I usually eat very little and tend to take a lot of leftovers home but today, I cleaned my plates! Was I uncomfortably full, absolutely. But I’d do it again daily for a meal that good. Ida Claire, you have a fan for life!!! Can’t wait to come back again for brunch and dinner!

Everything was great from the food to the service from our service but the service from this one host was terrible. She had an attitude and sat us outside even though we had an appointment inside. Like what was the point of our reservation then? Thank God there was another host that had us situated because I refuse to sit outside in the Texas heat and drink.

The Texas heat is brutal. I am so happy we got you moved inside. I will be addressing the Host team and making sure they communicated better. Can't wait to have you in again very soon.

Everyone i take to Ida Claire is always pleased and satisfied. We got seated on our appointment time.
Food is always good. One thing though i’ve noticed in the last two times i’ve been there, the pork chop was salty and my guests said the same thing. But overall, everything we ordered was delicious!

We truly enjoyed the evening. The music even sitting outside was a little loud. We wanted to talk we came early so as to avoid the crowds. The food was outstanding but the fried pie was a disappointment. We will be coming back.

Victoria was our server - she was outstanding.

I've been to Ida Claire Addison a number of times, usually for business lunches. Never been disappointed. It's a little loud at times, in terms of business conversation but I think that's a very minor complaint, if even a complaint at all - call it an observation.

I love this place.
