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.

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.

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.

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.

We were happy to get a table outside by requesting it just before our reservation at 11:00am on Saturday. We wish we could make a request for outside when the reservations are made. The server was delightful -- efficient and attentive with a good sense of humor. The food was delicious as always.

Clark's never disappoints. The setting, service, drinks, and food are always very well done and, while one is sure to drop some coin while there, it is always money well spent. My only reservation about this past visit was the size, and to some extent flavor, of the cocktail onion in my Gibson........a bit overwhelming on both fronts. I appreciate the in-house effort, but unlike their maraschinos, which ratchet up the concept, the onion, for me, went in the other direction.
