Great atmosphere with good service and (generally) good food. The bar and outdoor dining areas are nice. Brunch is delicious. Still the best restaurant in town. They always have lesser known wines that are good.

Wonderful food. Crab cake with fried green tomato, scallops, and T-Bone steaks were ordered and all done perfectly and enjoyed by all. The she-crab soup, goat cheese salad and wedge salad were also a hit. We always enjoy our time at Claire's at the Depot....More

My wife and I were joined by friends to celebrate my birthday. The food was outstanding and the service could not have been better. The staff went out of their way to make ours a very special occasion.

We were a group of 23. They reserved three tables in a nice quiet corner of the restaurant. Service was good from start to finish. With a party of our size, you can't always count on every need being met but they did it well....More
