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.

    It is an expensive diner .. but nothing so special. We have ordered Nashville chicken, seafood pasta and biscuits and cocktails .. Nashville chicken was not crispy that you expect and you could taste of old oil used for frying..seafood pasta was ok , 5-6 shrimps was swimming but nothing gave us woww moment.. you can eat same somewhere else with lower price tag..so I won’t go back .. I will try my chance to get better food near by ..

    All the hype about this place was an understatement! The food and ambience was super awesome! I had a reservation for three (it was my gal pal's birthday) at 10:30 a.m. We arrived at 10am, parking lot was already packed, so parked across the street, no big deal. We walk in with excitement, (our first time here), the hostess was not, lol. She said with the most lowest and saddest tone, "well, you can't be seated til your reservation time", I'm like cool, no worries! We anxiously waited til 10:30 on the dot, she said, follow me. I asked if we could be seated in a "cutesy" area, she ignored me and took us to a table right next to the hustle and bustle of server area, kitchen, high trafficked aisle. Okay, I thought, maybe she didn't hear me, so I didn't want us to sit there for my friends' special day. I flagged down another gal, I told her, if we could sit a booth against the wall of plates, which was clean and empty. She said went to ask, came back with a smile and obliged us. From then on, it was sheer glee! Our server was the ultimate server and the food/drinks were just out of this world! Aside from our initial encounter, I certainly will go back and recommend to others!

    We visited Ida Claire today for our anniversary. We arrived during happy hour and enjoyed drinks and the Nashville Shrimp. For dinner, we shared Duck Nachos (really should be called duck poutine) and the blackened redfish. Everything was delicious. Our Server, Ava, was Fantastic! We would love to come back when it's cooler, to sit outside, the main downside was the inside dining area was really loud. Another negative was the hosts at the host stand were really uninterested.

    Sat down quickly. Waitress was super friendly. Appetizers came out fairly quick. Whereas the food took a while and as I was told, “it is Sunday brunch and the kitchens is backed up. A bit noisy but we were able to tune out most everyone.

    Everything was delicious!! My 7 yr old son had the chicken mini-biscuits, which he loved! I had the chicken & kale salad with fried chicken and it was easily one of the best salads I’ve ever had- there was a little too much goat cheese, but that was not an issue- most places are really skimpy with it, so I enjoyed it! The honey mustard dressing was SO good. Other members of our party had the fried chicken and the blacked redfish & enjoyed them. Service was effective and responsive- we never waited for a thing. Appreciated the kids menu with games and such- silly detail, but it meant my son didn’t ask for his tablet and stayed very content. We also love the interior details- so many interesting things to see- kept us talking.

    Best server we’ve ever had! Fried green tomatoes and short rib dish were fantastic!! Reason for three star review- fried chicken dish was not edible. Totally overcooked and macaroni side was only slightly warm. When you say Popeyes fried chicken is so much better, there’s an issue. If you’re a southern style restaurant, your fried chicken should be amazing. I love this restaurant and it bothers me to leave something negative. However, I hope they read it and correct and improve that dish.
