It took three tries to get a reservation - we ended up there on a Sunday night. We were seated right away for our reservation, but there were no other open seats inside. We were short a knife and the insert for one menu, but the waiter brought the missing items and apologized. The wine list is not extensive, but there are several options for spirits. The clam chowder was excellent; baked oysters rich and yummy; crispy red fish over grits were fabulous! We will go back if we can plan ahead far enough to get another reservation. (Or maybe we will wait until it's nice enough to sit outside)
Clark's is the best! They have the best burgers and oysters in town.
Amazing food. Fresh & different
No gulf oysters . Outside tables were nice. Very loud inside. Clams and mussels were bland. Gravlax was perfect.
Never disappoints. Raw oysters and crab cakes are always great. Menu doesn't change much, but I feel it's because they have it dialed in.
Seafood was outstanding. Pricey, but extremely good food.
To tell the truth, I was a bit disappointed. Now in all fairness, I went with fairly high expectations. And is so often the case, they simply were not met. Everything was good, but not great! The snapper was cooked well, but I didn't care for the batter and the grits were excellent. However the kale was bitter and my wife's hamburger was dry. The fries looked outstanding, but way too much work for very little flavor and satisfaction.
I know it's not fair to judge a restaurant based upon one trip, but I don't think I'm going back anytime soon.
More experienced staff would make this place a winner.
It's telling me my review has to be at least 50 characters; however all I want to say is "As always, excellent!".
The wait person was less than stellar. My scallops were extremely salty and had to be sent back.
Love this place! The burger is literally to die for, so are the oysters! I try and come here every time I come to Austin!
Went with four friends from college. All very picky about food and wine. All gave it 5 stars! Incredibly good food, great wine list and full bar. Waiter was really good! We had redfish, crispy snapper, cioppino, linquine with clams and 3 dozen incredibly good oysters. Then we had three deserts - pear crisp, Affogato and dark Chocolate Tart. Best deserts any of us have had in months. The whole meal exceeded all our high expectations. We had earlier in the weekend eaten at Uchi, Emmer & Rye and Odd Duck. We loved them all, but this was our favorite. Great low lighting. Couldn't have asked for a better evening.
We got there early than our reservation,they seated us quickly, the food was awesome as always,attentive staff,love the tuxedo oysters are a staff.We'll be back.
Clark's is consistency wonderful. The quality of the ingredients and food is fantastic. Always fresh.
We arrived opening day and continue to return to one of our favorite watering spots. Great food great ambiance
I have eaten at Clark's three times. I always order the Lobster Roll which is expensive, but delicious. I have noticed other people's food is lacking for the price. This go around a friend ordered Shrimp Louie. There were just a few shrimp on her salad. Some meals are just not tasty either. It is a fun little lunch spot, but it is not a great value. Overall, it's best attribute is the food is fresh, nice service and decor.
Food was overpriced and the seating felt cramped inside. We could not have an intimate conversation because of the seating setup. The mac n' cheese was burned and had to be redone. Fries tasted good but such a pain to eat since they were the shoestring variety. Crabcake was very good, but quantity not enough for the price. Bread and desert were also good. Service was fine.
Excellent food, wine and service. Just like it is every time I go here.
Delicious menu everything we had was fresh and amazing. The staff was great and attentive. Great service from start to finish. The tables were a little too close for comfort. I could hear the conversations from the other tables and they could hear mine. I would definately come back.
Clark's always is wonderful and a great dining experience. One of my favorite restaurants in Austin!
The best in Austin
The food was unbelievable. I sat at the bar and watching the chef was really fun - the bartender made great cocktails but was not very attentive and
Only captures half of what I asked for.
Our favorite spot in Austin. Had dozen oysters and a glass of wine. Fabulous, Oysters plump and cold, service terrific. No complaints what so ever.
Clam chowder is amazing! Clark’s never disappoints and would recommend to anyone who enjoys seafood or burgers.
Delicious oysters. Server was a little pretentious but it did not distract from atmosphere and food quality.
The waitress was really great. The fajitas were very good and different presentation than you would usually see.
Went for our anniversary and wanted to go to new places but why when Clark’s always delivers. Outstanding red fish and the oysters I never had better else where yet. Simple and Classy.
Upscale casual. Need reservation for lunch. Small interior dining section plus interior bar/communal seating area plus some outdoor seating. Good fresh fish and sea food. Only wish the wine list was better.
Fabulous dinning experience. Food was outstanding, great service very cool atmosphere.
Chic, cozy seafood spot. Great for grabbing a bite at the bar or a romantic meal. Good for sharing or sticking to your own dished but take some time and try their fun cocktails. Love the décor: whites and yellows with sea-touches. One of my favorite go-tos for a meal with a good friend.
