Clara's on the River in Battle Creek was selected as one of the best restaurants in Michigan by the Best of Michigan website. They mention our great location in the Michigan Central Depot, they mention our decor, they mention our history, our brunch! (they forgot to mention our live entertainment on the patio but we will be sharing more of that with you here.)
From Best of Michigan: "One great thing about Michigan is that we get the concept of food. Michigan spends a lot of time in the grips of winter, about five months or so out of every year from about mid-November to mid-April, depending on the year.
Nothing fends off that cold weather like some hot food in your belly. Michigan has plenty of this, and great places to dine no matter the season."
Claras's was also selected as the "Best Breakfast Spot" by Best of Michigan!
From "Best of Michigan" website: "for those who want something a little extra special, step in on Sundays for its brunch buffet. Featuring the breakfast standards, including both omelets to order and fresh-made waffles with toppings, Clara's also makes it clear that it's a Battle Creek institution. "
Clara's on the River Celebrated its 25 Year anniversary in June 2017. Read the Battle Creek Enquirer article about the history of Clara's here:
"I don’t know if Clara’s likes to be compared to it, but it seems like the 'Cheers' of our community," Downtown Development Director John Hart said Tuesday. "You go there, and you see a bunch of faces you recognize. Things are always consistent."
