Great food. Excellent Toddy. The crude plates are amazing. Their red snapper entree and ceviche is totally worth it.

Our first visit a year ago was a 10, this year more like a 5. That said, we realize the difficulty of Covid. The food was very good, the service was flat and disinterested. It’s ok as we realize times are tough, but that’s what it felt like. Two other dining experiences in town did not feel this way. Don’t wear dark colors as the cloth napkins leave a TON of lint on your clothes.

Amazing oysters! Also had the chowder which was creamy but not heavy, delicious.

Highly recommend the shrimp & grits! Lots of flavor and cooked perfectly.

As expected the food was very good, however they had only one waitress in a section for 9 tables. We were not checked on until dinner was finished. We ended up going to the bar to get an after dinner drink. We mentioned it was our daughters 19th birthday hoping she might get some recognition, but nothing. Would not spend the money again based on the service.

What happened? Clark's used to be one of our favorite Aspen restaurants. We haven't dined here since early last winter, and were excited to return. Unfortunately, our most recent experience was not up to par. The inside of the restaurant was empty, but we were seated nearby a couple who kept coughing. The music was too loud. Our server did a terrible job and never checked on us during dinner; we had to ask a girl bussing tables for another drink as we were sitting with empty glasses. Some of the food tasted fine, but the lobster roll was not; and it used to be one of my favorites. My wife & I noticed the drink and food portions were smaller than before. Then the couple seated next to us started complaining about their food, and the service. What a major disappointment for a restaurant that we used to love!

Almost Everything was great, enjoyed the food and our waitress was wonderful. Our only complaint was the host, we waited a long time while he talked and laughed with his buddy. He was then curt with us.

Great seafood in the former Little Annies location.

I ordered a simple crab-louie which actually came with almost too much crab to eat. And, the crab was excellent.

We have eaten at this restaurant before the virus. It was our first trip to Aspen to celebrate our anniversary. We had looked forward to the clam chowder which was watery and had no clams. Our Norwegian salmon ( our fav type of salmon) was nothing special in taste and VERY small for the price charged. A very different experience not just due to COVID - a difference in kitchen preparation from our previous experiences.

Clarks is always a wonderful place to eat. The oysters are fresh as well as all of the seafood. We really enjoyed the bed salad which has a wonderful vinaigrette on it it in the muscles and clams were delicious. The service is always impeccable

Food was delicious. Our server was very nice. But it took almost 30 minutes to get 2 espresso martinis and were brought regular espressos after the long wait. Then waited again for the martinis. Which is fine but martinis should have been comped at that point.

We loved everything about Clark’s! Our waiter was really nice, the food was amazing and outside seating is great. Aspen is crowded right now and with covid ever present, it’s important for us to feel safe when dining. Clark’s took all the precautions and we felt very safe. Oysters, mussels and clams, halibut, roasted cauliflower all fantastic. Recommend anyone visiting aspen to dine there.

Our first lunch in Aspen was at Clark’s, which was highly recommended. My wife enjoyed the Crabcake which was truly outstanding. While I enjoyed the shrimp scampi on toast points and the grilled kale salad. Service was spot on, and the staff did an outstanding job. I highly recommend!
