“Interesting decor, good food, poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2008

My daughter and I had dinner at Clara's tonight. The restaurant is fascinating to look at. It is in an old railroad station with a railroad car attached which also has dining in it. We really enjoyed just sitting and looking around. The building itself is fascinating with a high vaulted ceiling, hanging stained glass chandeliers, and trophy animals on the walls.

The service was slow. I asked about the ingredients in a beverage and our server didn't know the answer and didn't offer to find out. We ordered hamburgers with french fries and waited about half an hour for them, even though there were very few patrons in the restaurant. When it came, the food was delicious and we enjoyed it, but the wait was frustrating.

“Not as good as it should be”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2008

My son & his gf arrived first. They were passed over by the first hostess who sat the four well dressed 50'ish guests. He stopped the second hostess and asked to be seated at a table for six, "We aren't sitting parties of six right now." and walked away. We arrived and immediately the manager asked if we had been helped. We waited for almost 20 minutes in the bar for a table and wound up with having to split our party between two tables. The food - they had no idea what Pellegrino water was, my potatoes were cold and the pork chops were overcooked. The ribs were slathered with BBQ and also not very hot. The nuts on the Sunday were stale and had an aftertaste. The final insult - the waitress brought our check and then disappeared. We wound up going to the cashier to pay our bill. $125 dinner with the family was very disappointing. We've been to Clara's before and had a wonderful experience. They need to evaluate their staff to sure up areas that seem to be slipping into the mediocre. D. Smith, Lansing area

“The Sunday brunch buffet...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2008

The Sunday brunch buffet is worth every penny. I love the stuffed french toast.
