Over many years, so pleased with consistency of Claires’ service and cuisine. Visited for lunch, enjoyed a mojito with my grilled shrimp entree salad. Always fresh and delicious, plus friendly faces abound! Don’t miss dessert. Took my chocolate torte to go for later!

We stopped here when family was in town visiting. We live in Culpeper and are pretty spoiled with the food choices, but decided to venture a bit further out. I haven't had much luck in Warrenton in the past, but this place was a very...More
