In a casual yet elegant atmosphere, set in a recently remodelled century old historic train station, Claire's passion is great food and outstanding service. Offering contemporary American cuisine - local, seasonally focused - with a Southern flaire. The renovation honors the historic character of the Warrenton Train Depot, resulting in a warm, comfortable environment for casual meetings with friends, or special occasions and intimate family meals. The warm, elegant Garden Room provides seating for intimate meals, while the Tavern Room features a more casual dining experience in luxurious surroundings. A rotating selection of craft beers is available on tap, and the wine service is regularly

Recently went here to celebrate my wife's birthday. The restaurant had a very nice atmosphere in the food was wonderful. I would highly recommend the crab soup, and believe it or not the salmon nachos.

Yes, children are allowed. Lunch and brunch are more kid-friendly atmospheres but we do also have a kids menu available at night as well.
