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 influences Clark's menu. A large portion of the concept is devoted to oysters, raw 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.

    Friend told me this would a cool place to take my girlfriend. They wouldn’t serve her alcohol because she only had her passport, which is annoying but understandable. The oysters were really good but the ceviche was like 4/5 stars good and tasted a little old. Our main courses were really good though and the waitress was super nice and attentive. I would recommend this place to my friend if they were looking exclusively for great oysters in Austin.

    Clark's might be the premiere seafood restaurant in Austin. The raw bar is second to none and the dinner dishes are outstanding. Service was first rate with knowledgeable and attentive staff while at the same time, unobtrusive. All said, this is a great dining experience.

    Sat inside. The 2 top was between 2 loud parties which wasn’t the greatest. But Chandler was great. Attentive and made great suggestions. Food was good. Lobster roll kinda pricey for size. But overall great experience. Thanks!

    We are big fans of Clark's and we visit any chance that we get. However, yesterday's dinner was very disappointing. The Crispy Snapper looked like always, but it was definitely not crispy and the skin was actually soggy and chewy. Their burger has shrunk over time, but what we received last night was the size of a slider. That was an EXPENSIVE slider for $22!! I hope that this was just a one time, end of the night mishap from the kitchen since we really like this place. For the prices they charge the food needs to be impeccable every single time. The oysters were delicious like always, the service amazing and our waitress very attentive.

    Food was very good and service was excellent. The restaurant is small so noise level is high but not unbearable. Also due to limited space, seating between tables is more intimate.

    We got reservations late so sat outside at 8 p.m. but misters and the breeze kept it pleasant. Cocktails and oysters were excellent, and the snapper sublime. My husband and son ordered the lobster roll and, based on the menu description, expected straight buttered lobster chunks rather than more of a lobster Louis salad. Basque cake was delightful.

    Overall experience was fantastic, the food was outstanding. Only complaint is that we had 9:30PM reservations and it was obvious that we were being “pushed” as dishes came before previous one was even done. Pretty obvious they wanted us out of there. Don’t accept 9:30PM reservations if you’re going to rush your customers.

    Small intimate restaurant cozy. service was great and super nice. We ordered several plates to share and have a bite of several dishes. loved them all. oysters were fresh ceviche was tangy and spicy. The lobster roll was incredible but the shoestring fries were to die for. Had the dark chocolate mousse for dessert and it was also amazing. great Job hope to come back...

    I booked this place to celebrate a girlfriend's birthday party. She was not disappointed! The waitress was very welcoming and made some satisfying recommendations. We ordered tons of appetizers, shared some meal portions, and we even made it to dessert. Thanks to you, Clarks, my girlfriend's birthday was a success.
