Ida Claire is a funky, southern influenced restaurant & bar. 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. We’ll have several different house bitters & a house gin. 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.

Unfortunately hostage station overwhelmed while talking on phone with no assistance which caused many to wait unnecessary period to be seated. Although not a large lunch crowd, service extremely slow and inattentive. However, food was great. Perhaps just a "bad day" for staff. -Lee

Service was good, friendly and prompt. Food was good, had the southern quiche,was very good, my husband had the egg white frittata it was ok. Biscuits were very good. It's a good option for breakfast or brunch.

Our waitress Rache' was AMAZING. My girlfriend and I were celebrating our anniversary, and honestly fell in love with Ida Clairs on our first anniversary, so it has become tradition. My girlfriend was not feeling well beforehand, but was fighting through. I had ordered a surprise cake for her before, not knowing that she was going to not feel well. Unfortunately, we had to cancel the cake. I told Rache' beforehand about the surprise and she was already informed. I told her that we would have to cancel the cake because my girlfriend was not feeling well. She was sympathetic and told her to feel better, and said she would bring her check. She brought the check along with a piece of paper that said 'Happy Anniversary' with candles. My girlfriend and I were completely blown away by how above and beyond that our waitress went. It might have been simple to some people, but to us it meant the world.

Rache' talked with us for a while, telling us she just had a really bad table beforehand. She had a good mood before, but after them was just down. You honestly couldn't tell. She was lighthearted, and funny while also was super helpful. I don't remember a time where I had my water empty (I drink about 10 glasses a night). Very informative about the food, and dealt with me even though I couldn't hear.

Food was just so-so and our waitress had quite an attitude. My husband is in the service business so we are always great tippers but she didn’t get her best tip that’s for sure. She said some snide remarks and was just not very friendly. The food was just okay. Nothing special. Sorry, I really wanted to like it.

Heather was an amazing server and was very knowledgeable about the menu as my friend was not eating meat for Lent and was able to guide us through the vegetarian options. The ambiance in the restaurant was a very trendy and hipster forward vibe which I liked. The food was incredible and the mac and cheese especially is out of this world. Will gladly be back.

Amazing experience! The Pearfect 75 was perfect for an abnormally warm winter day that felt more like spring, and the charcuterie board appetizer easily satisfied all 6 people in my party. My friend and I both ordered the chicken and waffles, and I declare (hehehehe) these might have been the best chicken and waffles I've ever had. Chicken and gravy were well-seasoned, syrup and waffle weren't too sweet, and egg perfectly done (I ordered mine over easy since I'm not a fan of sunny side up). Our waitress was very wise and actually stopped by mid-entree to tell us about the desserts (before we were too full to even consider sweets) but unfortunately when we went to order they had run out of most options. All in all, can't wait to go back!

I really wanted to try the fish but because I have food allergies could not as the shrimp and fish are grilled on the same grill.

Food was really fresh. Waiter was really accommodating with my order. I wanted the pimento cheese burger but with grilled chicken not beef and they were totally OK, did not make me feel bad for rearranging the menu! I did ask for NO tomato and it had the largest tomato on it I have ever seen. I just picked it off no big deal but I feel bad for wasting food.

Great food, good service. Vibrant (so, loud) which, IMHO, May be too noisy for a romantic dinner. A great place to hang out with friends, though.
