Clara's on the River, Inside and Out

A Message from Clara’s on the River:

It is with a heavy heart that I announce the TEMPORARY closure of Clara’s on the River. As a management team, we have decided that the risks associated with our continued operations are just too great, and they outweigh our desire to continue to serve Battle Creek through Curbside and Delivery Service.

Please understand that we are anxious to resume normal operations as soon as possible. Our focus is on the safety and protection of our team members and our loyal guests during these challenging times. We look forward to serving you soon.

Stay well. We love you all.

Sincerely yours,

Ross Simpson, Owner

Welcome to Clara’s!

Serving Mid Michigan since 1992
It's time to plan an evening of food, entertainment and fun on the beautiful Clara's Patio by the Battle Creek River! Please visit our 2019 Entertainment page with the calendar of events and bios about all your favorite jazz artists. These include Terry Lower, Edye Evans Hyde, Geroge Pendell, Lana Hoffman, and Larry Ochiltree. Many more, every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday starting beginning of June until Labor Day!
We celebrate the spirit of the past here at Clara’s. Good friends, great food in beautiful surroundings reminiscent of a simpler time.  Clara’s is a place where you are always welcome to get together… celebrate a birthday, rendezvous with old friends or just to get away. A perfect spot for a dinner out, a family reunion or banquet. Visit our Sunday Breakfast Buffet for a fun family time!
