I have been waiting to be able to go in and sit to enjoy this southern restaurant for a long time. The reservation went smoothly, the ambiance was nice inside to sit and enjoy brunch even though it was pretty crowed at 1:30.
First our server Brandan was nice when he came around but he was not on top of things as he should be. The gumbo and side biscuit were brought with our meals not before our meals as requested. My husband had the basic over easy eggs, with the sides. The potatoes were cold and needed salt which we asked for and were delivered a empty one. We finally trapped a bus man to get another 10 minutes later. My chicken and waffles were a mess and I was starving. Thank god that had the best gravy I'vd had in a while to cover the chicken which was cold and one tender not cooked all the way...yuk! The waffles was cold and undercooked also. Maybe our food sat a while up on the line? Maybe the waffle iron needs replacing. Anyway it was a disappointment. We will try it out again but at a slower paced time for them, after 2pm perhaps?
Apps (fried green tomatoes and biscuits) and Entrees were excellent and fish & meat temperatures exactly as requested. We had a group of 6 and everyone was satisfied with their meals. The restaurant was fairly empty on a Saturday night at 7pm and the food still took quite a while to come out, so it may be even longer if it had been busy.
The food was “okay” not a lot of flavor, was bland. Seemed low quality. The Bloody Mary was the worst. Couldn’t drink it. It was so thick. Service was fine and environment was okay.

Ida Claire is the place I take folks when they visit from out of town because I think it shows the best of JAX. Staff is welcoming, food is southern with a city twist on it, drinks are delicious and the environment is wonderful.

Josh was an amazing server. Food was delicious!
Our service was great. Food arrived quickly and everyone enjoyed what they ordered. However I feel it was overpriced for the quality.
Yummy food, good atmosphere, great service! 10/10 we will be back! Great happy hour choices!
I love Ida Claire! It's the perfect place to go for brunch or happy hour. The food and service are always excellent.
Great new spot, service is friendly and knowledgeable about menu. Food and cocktails are creative and flavorful. Fun rustic industrial environment
Ordered the chicken and waffles and the braised ribs. Both were amazing but the chicken and waffles were out of this world!
Went for brunch with friends. All of the food was outstanding. The gumbo and hot Nashville chicken were terrific. They had some of the best key like pie I've ever had. The service was fantastic. Our server, Ashley, was really great. We'll definitely be back.
Great ambience. The food and drinks are not only delicious but also have Snapchat worthy presentation. The staff have a great energy. Definitely recommend.
Hi Holly. Thanks for the amazing 5-star review. We hope you tagged us on Snapchat! Come see us again soon. - Sylvia
Awesome food and service!
First timing coming here for Sunday brunch. Way better experience than any brunch in Jax due to the fact you can make a reservation and socially distance outside. Loved the atmosphere and amazing service. However the food was just “OK” I wish it tasted as good at it looked.
Had brunch on Sunday. We started with the biscuits, which were very good - they had to bring us extra bacon-gravy. I had the monte cristo (without powdered sugar) and really enjoyed it. My wife had the waffle benedict which she really liked. The waffle benedict could easily be shared as it was huge!
The food was great. It was my first time sitting in a restaurant in months, so my nerves were on edge. A few things bothered me, but overall I believe they are doing the best they can.
Great new spot! Love the rustic industrial funky style, food is yummy with creative flavor combos
Great atmosphere, food and customer service! Loved it!
Food was very good. We will definitely be back soon.
Never liked kale till I ordered the baby kale with roasted shrimp salad. Crunchy and full of feta, peppers, pecans plus more. Enough for 2 meals. Husband ordered the porkchops which was enough for 2 meals too. Smoked, served tomahawk style & he said insanely good.
Drinks are a little over priced.
But I’ve been during Happy Hour too and I do think they have a good Happy Hour
My grits was too salty for my taste
The food was delicious and the service was top notch
The staff was very attentive in ensuring my guest and I had a wonderful experience with respects to food and hospitality. The management and waitress put forth special effort to ensure we were satisfied.
Great food and service!
Dining room was too loud. Our server was too busy to authenticately connect, listen and ask questions. She brought boxes and the bill and didn’t ask if we wanted dessert or coffee. She stopped to ask how the food was, but didn’t wait for an answer. She was either overwhelmed or just going through the motions. She screamed because of either her mask or she’s just naturally loud. It threw my entire experience and meal off. I tried to shake it but she was too much to handle. As soon as we sat she was asking what appetizers we wanted and was very pushy with the mimosas, she really didn’t give me a chance to respond when she jumped in with do you want anything other than water. I’m like can I have 30 sondes, no 10 seconds to just respond without you jumping with another assumption, suggestion or question. O asked for dressing on the side, didn’t happen, we asked for salt and pepper and hot 2 salts, granted the pepper container was filled with salt, but after dropping the salt and pepper shakers off she never stopped back to check on us, only to give the bill so we didn’t have an opportunity to share that the food was COVERED in salt. We did tell her after she impatiently dropped off the bill, stating no rush, but she clearly was in a rush. She offered to remake it but we were ready to go, now that I think of I, she should have offered to take it off the bill. It was an awful experience front beginning to end.
Good southern food. I had the redfish which was delicious. But you don’t get a very big piece of fish it was the size of the palm of my hand so for $27 I expected a little more. Still tasted fantastic and would recommend it.
Food was creative and quite tasty. Service was great. Cocktails were great as well.
Thank you for the 5 star review. We hope to see you sooner than later. Look forward to having you back. - Sylvia
Had a Birthday gathering and the staff was very accommodating and went the extra mile to serve!
Great vibe. Delicious food. We will definitely be back
Yay! We can't wait to have you back. Look forward to it. Thank you for the 5 star review.- Sylvia
The service and food were amazing. We always like trying more local restaurants or uncommon smaller chain restaurants when out of town. We were not disappointed. The pork chop with honey chipotle glaze was huge(made 2 meals out of it) and sensational! My fiance got the Nashville Hot chicken tenders and his was enough for 2 meals too. Our server was knowledgable and all of her suggestions were terrific.
I brought my mom here for supper/dinner. The biscuits with bacon gravy and mixed fruit jam were a great starter. My mom ordered the beef shank with mashed potatoes and asparagus, she especially loved how tender the beef was . I ordered the shrimp and asiago cheese grits, the dish is tasty but a little on the spicy side. Both entrees had generous portions. We decided on pumpkin spice cheesecake for dessert. It was heavenly!! You definitely won't go home hungry. The waitstaff was very courteous and attentive. The manager even came by to see how our visit was and if we needed anything. Thank for making our evening out so enjoyable.
We are thrilled that you and your Mom enjoyed your time with us. We at Ida Claire do have a nice kick in our ingredients. :) Next time you're in, we will have the Chef put the piquant sauce for the shrimp & grits on the side for you. Come back and see us again soon. - Sylvia
Good was delicious but service was lacking. The waiter didn’t come back to the table for a very long time at one point and we had to ask another server if they could get us drinks. It was also SO LOUD. Like we had to shout at each other. It’s a bit pricey but would try it again in hopes service was better
Service was poor. Waited 20 mins at table before server came to take order😞
Food was poor and no taste Nashville chicken.
Drinks were watered down
We have visited several times but Ida Claire would not our 2nd choice now.
Amazing. Perfect. We loved every minute of our experience.
Food was excellent. Ancient grain shrimp bowl was delicious as were the pimento burgers. Server was engaging and made us feel welcome and provided us with drink recommendations. Hostess needs some training and pointers on how to make guests feel welcome. Overall, service was great.
Great food selection. Very good cocktails. Great for casual dining!
My food was too salty and I was thinking white meat would be on my plate also... I did the bone in chicken on bread... My husband said his food was ok, really wanted a better review just wasn’t good at all. I’m hoping I caught them on a bad night 😩
Great service. Sarah was amazing. Food was fabulous!! Drinks were phenomenal!
