Seafood
Clark's features classic American seafood with an emphasis on freshness, local products, simple preparation, attention to detail, and clean presentation.
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 oysters, 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.

All of the seafood items that we ordered were delicious. Unfortunately a few of us had hamburgers and they were not up to par. The service was wonderful, the only problem was there was a ridiculous amount of flies in our lunch! There were bees all over the table, and flies landing everywhere! When you are paying these prices to eat lunch, you really should not have to be fending off flying bugs during your entire meal.

My husband lives in NYC and commutes to Austin a few times a year. Clark’s is always on our list to dine out when he comes into town…and it didn’t disappoint! Oysters, Gravlox and Crudo were fabulous choices! Clark’s makes the best cosmo ever..the best I have ever had! Love this place and highly recommend! One of our all time favorite spots in Austin!

Recommend sitting outside, inside very close together and loud.
The ceviche was amazing.
The Octopus was different, crunchy and spicy and interesting cream sauce base.
The Grilled redfish portion was thick and generous, with the red chimichurri sauce quite tasty addition.
Great wine selection at least in the white wine section we were interested in.
Next time we want to try the oysters and the crudo and possibly the whole branzino.
Oh! and the pile of shoestring fries, do not miss those!

I don’t typically write reviews. I am a New Orleans guy and largely critical of Austin food outside of BBQ, tacos and Mexican. I’ve only eaten at a few restaurants in Austin that I consider very good and this is one of them. This was my second visit and it was as good as the first. The oysters were excellent, my Crispy Snapper was excellent and the deserts we shared were excellent. Overall just a very good experience.

Poor service, server seemed apathetic, we were super nice, she seemed to want to avoid us. Seafood tower was mediocre and overpriced, real bummer since we waited months to eat here.

I would have given this a five star across the board but our waiter told us we had to leave in 15 minutes right after we ordered a bottle of champagne and another course - then never came back and asked about dessert ... not a good ending to an otherwise great lunch

Some of the best oysters we have had in a very long time. Service was great. Visiting from Florida for first time and our server was very helpful with suggestions. We will certainly make this one of our go-to spots in Austin.

Service was good. My food was over cooked, but tolerable. I’d try it again. The table next to us (which was/is very close) had a loud, obnoxious member, which left an unfavorable impression. But what can you do?
