“Food okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

Food is okay, service is always slow. The atmosphere of the old train station is sort of cool. Vast menu and pricing is decent. Parking is horrible.

“Something for everyone”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Nice downtown location just a block past baseball stadium. Roomy large beautiful old train station and dining car. Food is good and prices reasonable. Good place to take large group as there is a wide, wide, wide selection so everyone will find something to fit their tastes and eating requirements.

“Clara's Lansing Station- What a Menu!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

I really enjoy taking my family to Clara's in Lansing. It is a former railway station and has plenty of charm and period decor. There is a railroad car attached to the restaurant making it fun for adults and children. But most important is the menu. It reads like a book- so many choices it is difficult to make a choice. Sundays at Clara's feature a great brunch buffet. The restaurant has eggs, bacon, salad, meat choices, potatoes, a carving station and wonderful desserts. Wonderful.

“Average food,average atmosphere.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Not a bad place to go but it doesn't fit into the "great" category either. A train station motif just a few blocks from the capital building.....if you were looking for a quick bite before or after a Lansing Lugnuts base all game which is just a block or so away then this might fit the bill.

“A nice dinner for 2 in a novel eating environment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

THis restaurant serves great tasting and reasonably priced food. While old, it reflects the orginal interior of this Lansing Michigan train station that closed in 1972. It is alway a treat and is a big change from all of the chain restaurants.. Great!
