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, and caviar. We procure the freshest oysters from small harvesters around North America and serve cold seafood platters featuring super fresh daily specials.

Spectacular. Amazing. Divine. Fresh.
All of these describe Clark’s Oyster Bar and more. Everything everyone at my table had was divine. From the best omelette ever to the amazing salad garnish and dressing.
Definitely go here. No question.
Wonderful meal! And our server Sydney was amazing! All around A+++
Food was cooked perfectly ! Amazing! Lovely service !
The wine list is stellar. The food is delicious & completely crave worthy. The patio is comfortable.
Oysters freshest ever had anywhere. Roasted cauliflower was delicious. Crab Louie was just right. Server was charming.
Great happy hour!
Fresh oysters served perfectly. Clam Chowder cooked to order and can't beat the lobster rolls.
Everything tasted great! Our server was super friendly and checked in on us often enough but without being bothersome. Only complaint was the noise level indoors was a little high where you’ll have to speak a little louder than normal to have a conversation but this is probably more due to other guests than the actual restaurant. Definitely looking forward to coming back!
We visit Perla’s, June’s, and Elizabeth’s (part of the same restaurant group) weekly. We wanted to mix it up and try Clark’s since it's been some time since our last visit. Unfortunately, we were very underwhelmed by the experience. After we were seated we waited 10 minutes before our server greeted us. We ordered bread, and they never delivered it to the table even though we checked on it and were told it was on its way. The octopus was overcooked and rubbery. Lastly, we ordered the steak medium rare and it came out completely rare. They took it back and just recooked the same steak which then made it overcooked and dry. They offered nothing to make the inconveniences right. They only took the overcooked steak, that we didn't eat, off the check.
The oysters were clean, fresh, and delicious. The stone-ground grits with the “Crispy Snapper” were amazing however the snapper skin itself was not crispy.
Overall it was a very disappointing meal when you're spending over $250 on dinner. My experience was not what I've grown to expect from Clark’s and MML Hospitality.
Most delicious burger and fries I’ve ever had! My boyfriend loves the oysters and key lime tart. We will come back for sure!! Once we save enough again :)
First time going here and took over a month in advance to get a reservation but it was absolutely worth it! Outstanding food and great service. Can’t wait to go back.
We just love every MML restaurant in Austin!
Clark’s is a big favorite and all of the people are outstanding! Just wish we could come more. Reservations are tough to come by:)
Never disappoints, always delicious, always the best time, good for any and all occasions.
Outstanding selection of oysters and fresh seafood. Crudo plate was amazing. Great and affordable wine list for those seeking something interesting.
So grateful for the staff giving me the best table in the house, love Clark’s so much and can’t wait to be back
Fabulous crispy bass and Mac and cheese and margarita! My favorite restaurant and Larry has so many great restaurants, this is a big compliment!
Oysters at $4/hour were poorly presented (bare, a simple red sine vinegar no shallots and a lemon wedge) no additional sauces which is commonplace. 2 of the oysters were so tiny it was almost no oyster at all.
Service was short and then when we asked for the bill it took half hour. The restaurant was closed on the patio and not busy.
Rest of food looked lackluster so we left.
Tea was synthetic.
Our guests loved it!
Delicious food and amazing cocktails. Highly recommend!
Absolutely delicious from start to finish.
Great food as always!!! Justin was terrific!
Awesome loved it.
One of my fav spots always!!!
Had such a great time! We’ve been waiting to come here and it was so worth it!! Food was amazing and so was the service. I can’t wait to go back.
Cute ambiance, delicious but simple food, however it is quite expensive
For how hard it was to get into this place, it was very underwhelming. Service was great, but food was bland and had very little flavor.
Dressed oysters had no kick/spice and dressing blended in with oyster flavor so we had to order some more w/ traditional sauces and dressings so we can dress them ourselves. Chowder was more like a soup texture wise, was not very creamy or flavorful, and very thin. A $40 snapper had great side but the fish itself once again had very little flavor. The highlight of the night was wedge salad which is not great, for a seafood place.
Outdoor seating is very cute and charming but flies, bugs and birds were a lot at times. Inside was crowded and floor plan made in the way that you have to literally walk in the narrow walkway behind the counter where waiters prepare bread and butter for customers to get to the bathroom.
We had future reservations at Clark’s that we canceled after this visit. There are better places in Austin for seafood and ambiance.
What a lovely and most delicious Austin food experience!
My favorite happy hour in town! Always a great vibe and the dirty martinis are to die for!
As always, a fantastic time and meal with friends. Nothing like oysters and a martini to start with. The grouper - super fresh and perfectly prepared. I'll keep on returning as long as I can snag reservations.
Amazing food, drinks , service and everything ! Highly recommend!
Clark’s is always a treat... perfect every single time! One of our favorites!
Great food and service
Everything was ok. The food or drink were not amazing and service was extra slow.
Fantastic food, beautiful atmosphere, and my server had great recommendations!
Service and food great as usual! Grateful to have this reliable restaurant in our neighborhood.
Fantastic as everyone knows. We had oysters selected by the oyster bar and they were phenomenal.
Then the Crab Louis, my fave
Fantastic service outside with a friendly server and great Rose on a hot day.
Love the Clark’s experience whenever I visit Austin.
Incredible as always. Super fresh oysters, great and boozy cocktails, and the burger is my favorite in the city.
My favorite place to get fresh seafood in Austin. Always a destination when I visit.
Always enjoy Clark’s, but the kitchen was on top of its game this evening. Ambiance is rough due to Covid & having to set up in the parking lot. A great spot & meal.
