Clear river is a cute restaurant, and fun place to eat. They play music from the 50's and 60's, and have "Grease" playing on an overhead tv monitor. The have a very good lunch menu. We love their chicken wrap and soup.

We are here one afternoon after hours of shopping. The place was packed but it was worth any wait. We both ordered ice cream to go and it was really good. We will definitely eat here again.

They do have gift cards, just call them and they will work with you to get it purchased over the phone. Then they will hold it for someone to pick up or mail to you.
