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.

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.

First let me say I would eat here again. However... The garlic bread while good was woefully lacking when it came to garlic. The navy bean / bacon soup was in need of the bacon. The decor does not match the music. As the elderly couple at the next table said; this is bad elevator music. A little too bright.... More

Very friendly people here, excellent menu selections, sort of out of the way so you will have to LQQk for it. (Not on main drag) however only a block off the I-65 expressway. One of the best Rueben sandwiches I have had in a long time. She have the catfish dinner, also excellent. This restaurant will be on our list... More

Lots of good seafood! I don't eat seafood, but my fiance does and he gave it the stamp of approval. I had the porkchop dinner (with garlic mashed potatoes and green beans) and it was delicious. Love the home cooking in this restaurant and the staff was extremely friendly and attentive.
