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.

We arrived and the staff told us that if it rains in the patio, then they can accommodate us inside. That turned out to be false and we had to leave. Disappointment.

The place is very hipster not southern. The drinks are overpriced and very watered down. The food was not bad but also not worth the price, my wife cooks better food at home.

I always enjoy dining at Ida Clare and today was no exception. I would recommend slightly more spacing on the outer tables but still felt safe. Food was outstanding. The frose and blueberry Moscow mule also put a smile on our faces.

Our favorite place for brunch!! The biscuits are the best and everything on the menu is always delicious. Amazing and friendly service. Was the first place to book a reservation after the shelter in place was lifted. There was limited seating and it was great to be back.

Food was simply not good. I suggest the chef spend some time in South Carolina or Tennessee and learn real modern Southern cooking.

Although our waiter was nice and attentive, it took close to an hour for us to get our food (which was nothing difficult to put through the kitchen). It was not peak brunch time as we went at 3:00pm on purpose. With a toddler, sitting their waiting for food was unnecessary and very frustrating.
