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.

One of our go-to spots pre-COVID and we were happy to return. Sadly, and surprisingly, there were no longer vegan options on the menu beyond a few sides -- no more lovely hummus board. So while my friends all were able to enjoy lovely meals, I dined on asparagus and roasted veggies. Not terrible, but not great either. Please bring back the hummus board and add a vegan entree to the menu.

Service was slow but it was the first time I'd been to brunch in over a year so I was ok (it was pretty packed)! Our waiter was actually quite charming and great. The music was on point on the patio as well.

The food was really good and our service was as well. Try to go during happy hour because the drinks are pricey after that. They have a pretty good selection of beers and cocktails. The biscuits are amazing and the bacon gravy is the best.

Service was outstanding. We had the sticky bun, fried green tomato Benedict, & the Nashville hot chicken. Neither plate disappointed. The shaved ham on the benedict, with the Tabasco gravy was a flavor explosion! Nashville hot chicken, I’ve had it in Nashville, Louisville, & Addison. Hard for me to discern which cities chicken was done better. Kudos to the kitchen staff. We’ll be back.

So happy to discover this great place. Came for the music and the excellent reviews on the food. The Cheese/sausage board, red fish, seafood pasta, coconut cream pie, and Ding Dong cake were all superb. The drinks were excellent. The waiter was very knowledgeable and excellent. Note to him....he focused on the men and did not address the wives....just a thought. Alex Cantrell music was the bomb.

We invited friends from out of town out for dinner, and I had to pick the restaurant which always makes me nervous. Our friends absolutely loved the restaurant! The atmosphere was energetic, yet quiet enough to talk and catch up. I love all the little touches in the restaurant that remind me of my Great-grandmother's house, and the food was delicious!

Food was terrific. Sides amazing. I had the pork chop with veggies amazing, my wife had 2 sides asparagus and the orzo we shared the pork chop my oldest son had the chicken and waffles delicious, my youngest son had chicken strips and he said they were the best. The custard lemonade strawberry pie was ok. Will definitely be back. Wife was disappointed that they didn’t have the bourbon pecan pie available.

Great food, but service was a little slow. This may be due to ramping back up after Covid, so a little grace is given. However, it took 20 minutes just to get drinks, a little long for a place with a full bar.

This was my first outing post-lockdown. We ate excellent food on the patio and listened to Maya play gorgeous music on the perfect Friday night. Loved every moment of it. Servers were wearing masks, but the restaurant was open 100%. I’m glad we were on the patio. :)
