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.

Birthday, food was great and awesome cocktails too
It was our first time eating here. It was an overall great experience.
Out favorite date spot - Eclectic and unique dining offering that has something for widely different tastes. We've nicknamed Ida as "American Fusion"
Great food and service as always...
Fridays at Ida Clare are now a family tradition. We enjoy the good food, great service and awesome cocktails.
Great food and service. Fried chicken was amazing and the Ding Dong cake is out of this world.
Pretty noises but to be expected. Fabulous food. They were busy so everything took a little longer but we were happy with everything.
Excellent service and food! Love the brunch menu!
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!
Our waiter Michael was awesome!!
The seafood dip was great ! I had the shrimp and grits. The grits were amazing ! We had a very good server. We would eat here again.
Extremely slow service on the patio! Menu seemed a bit limited for brunch, but good overall.
Excellent food and service. Will dine here again. Fun atmosphere!
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!
Too many flies on patio
We were In town to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. This restaurant was in a close location to our hotel. We loved the food. If ever in this area we will eat here again.
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.
Food was great and my server was very nice and accommodating. I would definitely go again and take others….. my waffles embedded with bacon were amazing!
Food is great. My only complaint is that the amount of gravy on my biscuits was very scant.
Food was nasty as hell. Fried green tomatoes was the ONLY good thing.
Great service and meal was delicious. Thank you
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.
It was our anniversary & EVERYTHING was amazing!
Always fun cocktails...some different entrees. Have been here multiple times.
Lovely lunch out on the patio service was very efficient and friendly and the food was fabulous highly recommend!
Very cute/different atmosphere! Service was great, and food was delicious! We’ll definitely be back.
I really enjoyed myself very elegant will return. The management staff was very friendly and understanding. Servant was excellent
This was our first experience with restaurant Chicken and Waffles. It was outstanding!
Location, food, and service were great.
Too loud, not good for business lunch.
Even during a busy business lunch period, the waitstaff was very responsive and service was great! We were in and out in a timely manner, and the food is always delicious! I have not ordered anything on the menu I don't like. This is definitely one of my favorites!
Excellent food. Perfect ambiance. First-rate service. Made our early anniversary dinner a special memory. Looking forward to many more dining experiences.
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.
Everything loved there food expired me. I want a fan of the seafood pasta. The waiter was also super busy with other tables. Send line they had too many tables to attend to.
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.
Another totally satisfying dining experience at Ida Claire’s. Brunch, lunch or dinner, my expectations are always met. And don’t forget the biscuits.
As always it was great! Our waiter Eric was amazing!! Will definitely be back!
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.
