Clark's Oyster Bar
Classic coastal cooking from the Texas Gulf to the Northeastern Seaboard will influence Clark's menu. A large portion of the concept is devoted to the Oyster, Cold Bar, Seafood, & Caviar. We procure the freshest oysters from small harvesters around North America and serve cold seafood platters featuring super fresh daily specials.
What Insiders Are Saying
Excellent seafood in an Instagram-ready environment. The only catch is you'll have to pay mightily for it.
Our server appeared to be new and didn’t know about several items on the menu, but otherwise we had a great experience!
The red trout was incredible, everything else was just OK for the price. The lobster mac and cheese was disappointing. Great ambiance inside and the hostess was wonderful!
Great experience as always. Clarks never disappoints me.
The food is good. Very small, so make a reservation. Service was a bit slow.
Always amazing food. Service was spotty but they recognized it themselves and more than made up for it. Best seafood in Austin as far as I’m concerned and a terrific location and vibe.
Food was amazing. Service was lacking. Not friendly, did not want to offer suggestions. The lack of southern hospitality is something we missed!
Great food great service but $$$$ worth it maybe fries maybe worth it
Great service and food. We were visiting Austin for a graduation and picked this restaurant through the reviews on Open Table. We weren’t disappointed. When we return to the area this restaurant will be on the list to revisit.
My wife and I had a great experience. The restaurant is small and cozy. It was a nice break from the busier areas of Austin. We ordered the large seafood tower, which was a great value for everything that you receive. The highlight was definitely the beef tartar which we always look to try in every city we go to. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Austin. Cheers!
Everything we had was delicious and it was such a nice atmosphere. Only disappointment was the service. Although she was very nice and informative when it comes to the menu, she didn’t course the dinner out which she didn’t think was “the game plan” and dropped the check before asking about desert or checking if we finished the bottle of wine. Probably needs a little refresher on service for a place like Clark’s. Thanks!
Fantastic oysters I just thought they were overpriced.
I didn't like my Mexican Martini though it was terrible. My burger took half an hour to get there. My lady thought the drinks options were kind of funky. I'll definitely go back though. The oysters were great.
we showed up with a nine month old baby and they were very accommodating in that aspect.
Good for cocktails and appetizers. Entrees were disappointing especially at the extremely high price
Awesome Service! Adair was tremendously attentive!
Great food and service as always.
2nd time there. Food is always excellent, as are the cocktails. Wife loves their cioppino, I’ve never had it. Very good raw oyster selection from northeast and northwest. Only downside was we had full view of a “show” in front of us - some 50-60 year old guy and his 25 year old girlfriend involved in a 2 hour make out session on the patio right in front of us (maybe they were on moly or she was charging by the minute?). Geez next time get a room.
Great food, but acoustics are terrible. Hate the banquette seating, but it's geared toward millienals (sp?) and the poseurs. Would go back, but it will be a long time.
Service and server were outstanding.
Great place ,great service, great food,we shall return
The hostess managed to find us a table at the patio. Our first visit and food were amazing.
Team happy hour!
Clark’s never disappoints. It’s one of our favorite spots for our monthly ladies lunch.
First time to Clark's and had a very good meal. Oysters and crab were very fresh and well presented, as were the salads. We had linguine and clams and a burger (felt kind of conflicted ordering beef at seafood place, but had heard a lot about it). Both were excellent. Service took a bit of time to get to us at first, but was very good after that. We were surprised at how few tables there were inside so it is a bit crowded if you don't eat outside, but it was fine. It is pricey but given the quality of the ingredients, it's clear where the money goes. Will definitely return
Clarks Rocks. This is one of our 'go to' places in Austin when we want a great meal in a casual, Austin cool environment. Note, Clarks is a small restaurant so make a reservation. Outside is nice but can get a bit warm in the summer. The food is always perfect from the oysters to the hamburger and everything in between. Their wine list is good and bar servers some great cocktails. Martini's are $5 during happy hour - dont miss this:-)
Great food, lovely wine list. Highly recommended.
Food was great, ambiance was great, service was great. A little pricey but worth it.
Vacationing from NY
Fantastic as always. Best seafood in Austin, best Cioppino anywhere!!
Love clarks. Our absolute favorite place to go in Austin. Small and quaint. Fabulous setting. Great food. The BEST oysters!!
Best burger in Austin, but everything is great. It's on the pricey side, but you absolutely get what you pay for. Linguine with Clams, clam chowder, even the salads are spot-on.
We arrived early but were promptly seated at the bar until our table was ready. We immediately noticed the quiet and intimate ambience. All of the staff was super attentive and made great suggestions. Joel was our fantastic waiter and all around awesome. The clam chowder and the halibut were top notch, although my husband was not a fan of the lobster roll but said he'd definitely return. Cannot wait to head back to Austin for round two.
Favorite spot in Austin. Oysters are great. Legit bar. Crispy snapper is my go-to, but the burger is super tasty. Clark’s is the best in the biz.
We love the place, the decoration, the welcoming, the menu is always appealing, Loved both the Lobster roll and the Shrimp tartan, the Service is friendly and smiley.
We'll come back!
Excellent food as always. Crispy Snapper, Shells and Cheese, the Snapper Crudo, and an amazing dessert.
Service was outstanding and food was perfect. Thank you.
As always the highest standard. We travel the world and this is as good as it gets in its genre.
We arrived early to our reservation and were immediately seated and greeted by Chelsea. Throughout the meal she was attentive and engaging. Great food and service as we expected!
Absolutely love the food and atmosphere! Our waiter was a little short with us but no biggie he seemed very busy!
We took our two college-aged kids for a festive last night on our trip to Austin, and the food, service and lively, authentic atmosphere of Clark's was fantastic.
Went Friday night and then again for our reservation at 4 that afternoon. Service was great Friday night and not so great on Thursday afternoon at 4 which didn't make any sense cause it was busier the night before.
Maybe it was the waiter but for 374+ ticket my glass should always be full and I shouldn't have to ask for more bread. That should be a given....
On a good note the food was incredible as ever and the martinis were dirty and plenty of olives. So 5 stars for that.
The hostess was very unpleasant! Everything was great.
Everything was great. Food was wonderful and we loved the casual vibe. We WILL be back
