We went to a early dinner and we both ordered salads and a glass of wine. The food was excellent and the service was prompt, courteous and helpful. We sat outside on their patio and the experience was wonderful. We highly recommend this restaurant.

I have been a regular at Claire's for years. They have great selections for good prices. The wait time especially during weekends and summer time can be almost an hour, but it's worth it and they usually seat people as quickly as possible. Claire's is...More
