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.

Our server was great! We did have another server however bring one entree to the table though it wasn’t clear he was at the right table. He left the plate And then came back to take it away. Told him one shrimp was already eaten off of it and he comment was…”that’s ok, I’ll fix it”. Ummmm what? And then we witnessed him serving the plate to another table!! Good grief!! Twice after, other servers came to out table with food that belonged to another table. Just seemed like they didn’t know what they were doing :(. Little pricey on the cocktails. Food was delicious and atmosphere is awesome!

Outstanding meal and service. The restaurant was packed and loud, but our waiter was attentive and responsive. The food was as advertised, and deliciously executed. It made my birthday celebration with my family, a very memorable one.

While our visit was overall very good, I was disappointed with the beautiful pork chop (pictured). It was 90% fat and tough. Will not order again.

Other items - Chicken & Waffles, seafood dip - were delicious.

Eric did a great wait service!

Other than dining for brunch on a Saturday during those busy hours, the restaurant was delightful. Due to inside being busy we chose the patio which was great & refreshing.

This is one of my favorite restaurants and I have been here several times for dinner and they have fantastic take out. Today we came for vinyl hour and it was awesome: great plates and cocktails for $5. Service was prompt and friendly.

Great experience. Didn’t like the Duck Nachos. The duck was delicious, but homemade potato chips tasted like the wrong “vehicle” for nachos. Several of the chips were soggy. Also, the dish seemed out of place for them.

This was the second time I’ve been here and I absolutely loved it the first time. This second time, I had a table reserved and had to wait 20 minutes to be seated, then a 45 minute wait for food just for it to be ice cold and had to be sent back. Another 25 minutes before I got my meal and at that point I was kind of over it. I was so sad! First experience earlier in the year was so good compared to what happened yesterday.

Impeccable dining experience. Summer was a great service person, she knew just how often to check on our table without becoming intrusive. The ambience was quite eclectic and interesting. The background music was too loud. Now the food was some of the best - my husband had the fried chicken. They know how to FRY chicken & there was an apple cucumber salad as a side - simply delicious. Our guest couple had the shrimp pasta dish - we tasted it as well & it was also delightful. This food was soo good I want to return enough time to have everything on the menu.

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.
