Excellent Local Restaurant, Close to the Interstate

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.

Casual atmosphere and the service was very fast and prompt. The menu has a nice choice of selections. We chose a couple different shrimp dinners. The shrimp was good and they offered a nice variety of side choices. We were surprised that they do not serve alcohol. Easy to get on-off the interstate if you are driving through. Be sure... More

Clarks has become a favorite place to dine for my family. The establishment is always clean, service pleasant and timely, and the menu has everything from chicken fingers (my kids favorite because they're fresh) to Seafood Au Gratin that's out of this world. Lots of selection on the menu and everything we have ordered was made with quality ingredients. We... More

We rode over to this restaurant with some friends in the WWII replica command car that he built. We did catch a bit of attention, but thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. We had the prime rib and found it delicious. The sides were plentiful and quite good. Atmosphere is nice. My only complaint, and a very mild one at that, is... More
