Sunday Brunch is a favorite here-- but the She Crab soup is a must try any time. Wonderful atmosphere and service

My friends and I enjoyed a spectacular holiday lunch just before Christmas. Started with a Kir Royale although a nice Sangria was also available. We had the crab soup, shared the ahi tuna wontons and each had a salad. My friend enjoyed the wedge and I had the surf and turf Caesar. I ate every single bit of it too.... More

Quiche, shrimp & grits, pancakes and sausage. With cranberry flavored mimosas! Slot of the reviews say Claire's is the best Resteraunt in Warrenton, but the really isn't a close second.

First timers at this cute restaurant in Warrenton. Reservations really critical during the busy holiday season. The clientele ranged from couples celebrating anniversaries to small office parties. A very local-friendly vibe - we enjoyed it. Food was outstanding. Shrimp/grits was flavorful and lustrous according to my wife. My mac-cheese-bacon-crab was fabulous. Lumps of crab, good bacon flavor complemented with a... More

Claire's is hands down the best restaurant in Warrenton. Since the addition of more fish to her menu, besides her famous she-crab soup, her menu is more enticing than ever. She has something for everyone. Great for Sunday brunch, lunch or dinner but make reservations.

We had a family dinner at Claire's the night before Thanksgiving. The food was excellent. The service was great especially considering that we were a group of 22. Having a dinner this good right before Thanksgiving sort of takes away from the main Thanksgiving meal, but we will go back there again after the holidays.

For my money, Claire's is still the best restaurant in Warrenton. Great food, nice ambiance - the total package! Make sure to make reservations as they are always booked up. Prices are a bit on the higher range of mid-range but still very worth it.

It is a great place: setting and food. We ate there many times when we used to live in Middleburg. It was already a great place and it still is. This time, we had lunch outside (late November!). The service was perfect and so was our lunch. We found the wine list a little too much focused on local wines... More
