    As always, Clark's is a very comfortable place to enjoy an outstanding meal without a lot of fuss. Nice setting for lunch includes some very good cocktail options. The Three Day Weekend was a refreshing beverage made with gin, strawberry, basil, lemon and sparkling wine. We started out with a dozen oysters and our server selected an array from around the country. Love the freshly grated horseradish on the tray. My dining partner had the crab cake with Hollandaise, and I had grilled redfish. Nice sauce options for the fish. Can't get any fresher and the light side salad consisting of watercress and endive was just the right accompaniment to my entree. We split a dessert of Basque cake (almond) with dark cherries and cream cheese ice cream. Not too heavy and a perfect ending to a mid-day meal.

    We love Clark's Oyster Bar but have a hard time getting reservations so we were so excited to get in this week. Well worth the wait! Food, service and wine were all amazing. Highly recommend the Wood Grilled Shrimp Toast! Very creative cuisine.

    This was our first time at Clark’s at we were not disappointed with anything! Probably the best bread & butter I’ve had. The atmosphere was warm and it was pretty quiet being outside. The food was great.

    We celebrated two family birthdays on our visit to Clark’s. Made reservations 3-4 weeks in advance for a weekday night. The seafood was OUTSTANDING! the best we gave had in Austin since we Macedonian here 6 years ago. It is a small restaurant and the noise level with the music playing was pretty loud, but overall the experience was very positive!

    We love Clark’s, it is our special occasion go-to. However this visit was distracted by flies in the dining room. And the portion of Key Lime pie was tiny for a 12 dollar price. Everything else was outstanding!

    Phenomenal oysters and drinks! We tried both the raw and oven roasted oysters, and all were great. Linguine clam pasta and cioppino were phenomenal, and we also enjoyed the burger and clam chowder. Drinks were also great. Had to wait a little for our reserved table, but overall would recommend!

    Clark’s never disappoints! If you don’t want to throw down $100+ go during HH - their burgers are so delicious! You can get your fix of oysters and cocktails and still be full leaving.

    We got the seafood tower. The lobster was bad. Our server didn’t seem to think it was a big deal. She brought new lobster and told us what we got was from yesterday. A manager didn’t come by. Disappointing for sure.

    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 is always great. Pricey but that’s any high end seafood restaurant these days. Service always great. Best crab Louie in town and the crudo plate is as close as you can get to Sway Oyster Depot’s (San Francisco) Sicilian Sashimi dish. The burger and snapper were both excellent this visit.

    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.

    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.

    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.
