Great food and atmosphere!

The food is all great! I have tried several entrees and all where great, my favorite is the New York Strip. The service is always quick and friendly. The place fills up quick during peak dinner hours, so go early and hungry!

We have a business contract in the Athens vicinity and we will be in the area through 2017. Finding good places to eat is a priority, so we were happy to see the good reviews of Clark's Restaurant. First note: we were seated at the table nearest the front, and the temperature outside was a cool 35 degrees. Every time... More

It's really not all that little, but is quaint. So nice to eat at a homey comfortable friendly place, not a chain restaurant. I loved this place. I had the salmon with shrimp and pineapple and it was wonderful! Next time we are headed to Florida, we will definitely stop here again.

We stayed at the Hampton for the night. They offer a discount, it was close so we tried it.. Service was very good, food was prepared with a home touch, large portions and a little unique side selections.. Clean, interesting place.. Quite and a little out of the way.. Would eat there again if ever in the area.

We were promptly greeted once we came inside the semi-isolated seafood place. We took a recommendation from a lady at the hotel and went there. Delicious seafood, and a very nice waitress who, in our lengthy decision making, bore with us. I recommend this to any seafood lover.

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
