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.

Two hours to eat dinner.
Server forgot our side dishes. Team service concept is a disaster because most of the team don’t know the table and the order. Cocktails take 15 minutes.
The restaurant was nit that busy but the servers spent most of their time visiting with each other or other guests who they seemed to know.
Main course was served to three of us at once. The fourth had to wait five minutes to get his order.
This exchange was a metaphor for the dining experience.
Me: “Do you have a pepper mill for my salad?”
Server: “No because of Covid, but we can bring you some pepper.”
Me:”That would be great, please bring me some pepper.”
I am still waiting....
Fantastic as always. Clark's is a gem. It never disappoints.
Clark’s never disappoints !
Enjoyed the oysters. The snapper was good. But the prices are too high. Drinks are overpriced. Snapper was supposed to be 6 oz - seemed smaller but expensive. Good food but needs to be a very special occasion or when someone else is paying for me to return.
Delicious food, casual service, a bit loud inside. Mussels, kale and shrimp toast all yummy.
Great food but sitting outside in 32 degree weather when there were empty tables(social distanced) was disappointing. To spend that kind of money and freeze wasn’t fun.
Great spot for happy hour. Their happy hour special is great to get friends together and have nice martinis. Their burger has gotten a little smaller, but still just as delicious as it has always been.
It was super safe outside with heaters at each table. It was about 50-55 degrees and we were very comfortable and felt very safe / spaced apart. Great place for a Covid date night!
Ambiance was great but the fries were a tad too salty.
Was great. The oysters here are unbeatable.
The service was excellent and staff was knowledgeable. Drinks are very well priced during happy hour. Ordered their burger medium rare and it came out well done. They were able to fix the issue real fast.
Weather was perfect on the patio. Service delightful and the food --roasted cauliflower, kale and cioppino especially delicious.
the Chowder, the Hamburger don't get better than Clark's offerings.
I came through Austin on the way back to Dallas because I love the food at Clark’s so much. I was disappointed however that I was sat on the side of the building facing construction. I reserved a table a week in advance so I was surprised to get the worst seat available. Other than that, service and food were excellent as usual.
Great food as always! My wife tried the burger for the first time and she LOVED it. Always enjoy the oysters! I had the blackened tilefish which was superb. Excellent service!
Favorite place in Austin!
Always love coming here! Ashley was our server and she was great. She picked out the most delicious oysters for us to try out.
burger was outta bounds. oysters super fresh. great atmosphere 10/10 recommend
Our server wasn’t the best, he forgot about us multiple times as we were tucked in the corner. The ladies or manger was awesome! I wish we could of tipped them instead for acknowledging us. Love Clark’s, unfortunately, the service was horrible from our server.
Amazing food, service, and ambiance! We had oysters, crudo, shells & cheese, redfish, and scallops. All delicious. Good cocktails too. My only complaint is that the scallop plate only comes with 3 scallops. They were some of the best scallops I've ever had, but I would add a 4th if they're going to charge $38.
Overall, fantastic experience and can't wait to go back for happy hour or another special occasion.
Everything was incredible including the food, ambiance and the service. I wish the happy hour were a little more robust. 50 cents off oysters isn’t much!
Lunch business meeting with a friend. Excellent food and excellent service.
Its so good. Just really wish the fries were thicker!
Server was great, food was fantastic. Book early, but worth every penny.
Great as always!!
Everything was delicious
Always great people watching, great location, excellent service and amazing food. Always a top pick for day date.
Always a great experience! Food, setting, service, cocktails. Favorite place in Austin!
Delicious oysters, martinis, and burger at HH. Covid-safe and heating lamps for the chill. Will be back!
We love Clarks. The food is consistently great. We typically get a dish or two to have the next day as well.
Awesome, fresh food!
Was a good evening, just seems a bit too pricey on simple meals sometimes.
I understand seafood can be expensive but a basic cheeseburger seems over priced
Steak Diane, Burger, Lobster Roll, Dozen Oysters, everything was great including the service.
Wonderful lunch experience with amazing and insightful service!
Food is top notch. Only knock is we were battling with a few fruit flies.
Service was slow. Wasn’t clear who our server was and they also never asked are we ready to order. Food was great and ambiance but service was not.
They tried to cancel us the reservation 4 hours before on New Years eve
Clarks is my favorite restaurant in Austin. It’s always the best!
Love Clark’s, the oysters were amazing. We were seated way after our reservation time which was unfortunate but the food was great.
Service was very good, food was good, albeit $32 for a lobster roll is a little high, but it was very good.
Having to sit outside on 6th street is just a little noisy, but that’s no fault of the restaurant. I’m glad they’re able to stay open and deliver great food.
