Good food, great service

Clark's is a bit of a hidden gem. It is tucked away in the back of a multi-business building at the end of a cul-de-sac, but is well worth the hunt. Serving a good selection of steaks, chicken tenders, salads, and sandwiches, Clark's is a must-experience. Good food, great service, and reasonable... read more

The establishment is charging fine dining prices for a down home environment. Confusing. Service was just okay,the food just okay, a little different items on menu than others in the area. Nothing of a great experience, save your money.

Two in the party ordered the prime rib. The waitress asked what side do you want and what salad dressing on the salad. After she walked off they realized she didn't ask how they wanted the prime rib cooked. When she came back she had the salads and at that time they asked her if they had a choice of... More

Fist I must say the service was good and the place was clean. I ordered the chicken parmesan. The chicken had a fishy taste. No kidding, I had to check to make sure it wasn't fish. I believe they fried it in the same oil they fry the fish in. The clam chowder was very thick, which is good, however... More

We were extremely disappointed. The food did not taste or appear to be made from scratch. Canned products were used. Will not return.

I have lived in Athens for 3 years and just discovered Clark's. It was great. The atmosphere was great and the food was delicious. I had the mahi mahi with shrimp, cream sauce, mandarin oranges, pineapple, brown rice, and mashed potatoes. Everything was really good. Definitely recommend and definitely will be back.

Husband had the spaghetti and meatballs & I had the parmesan chicken. Yum! The side salad was definitely above the average. Decor was nice and cozy. Only one criticism is their old-fashioned chintzy policy of charging an additional $1.00 for a side item substitute. We travel thru the area 2-3 times a year and will most certainly be back.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a nearby hotel. They have excellent food at reasonable prices. Excellent service. Use your GPS to find it. We enjoyed shrimp and scallop dishes that each had a different, but delicious sauce.
