“unique”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is a old train station. I have never seen such a huge menu! It is also nice in the Summer to sit outside on the patio.

“Great setting”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

This restaurant is located in a restored train depot. Lots of great parking. We stopped here on our way to the Gilmore car museum in Hickory Corners, MI (20 miles away). The décor is fantastic, with Tiffany lamp shades, and windows. Lots of interesting items on the wall and ceiling. The salads were very good. We had the fried chicken salad (full) and Michigan cherry and chicken salad (full). They were large but gigantic. The service was top rate.

“wedding rehearsal dinner review”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

We were from out of town and were at this restaurant for a rehearsal dinner. Waitresses were very courteous and attentive. Food was good. Atmosphere is outstanding. Love the old railroad station. If you get a chance to walk around the properly, definately do so. Very pretty.

“Beautiful Building”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

The building the restaurant is housed in used to be the Michigan Railroad Depot built in 1888. It was interesting seeing the building. The day that we went there for dinner was a very hot; however, the builling temperature was cold enough for me to go to the car and get jackets for us. We were looking forward to great dinner basis on the reviews that we read. We were disappointed as the food was just average. My wife had a fish platter and I had a western salad.

“excellent option for lunch or dinner”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

At there last month, both for a working lunch and then a dinner with the family. The menu offers an extensive selection of options, including vegetarian ones. Everything from wonderful pizzas, to exceptional salads, to Italian and Mexican fare are offered. I've eaten at Clara's numerous times and never had a bad meal. If you are interested in a working lunch, they do bring your meal quickly.
