Stopped for lunch on Rt. 95 heading south to FL. We were in a bit of a hurry and everyone in the place mobs in slow motion. We opted for the buffet. The only healthy item was the salad. Fried chicken, casseroles, etc. clientele was definitely seniors for the most part other than a couple business people. Hoping for a... More

For years while traveling we always try to stop at Clark's,especially for there fried chicken. We were disappointed in the size of the portions this time. The chicken as before was good,but the chicken leg may have been the smallest I was ever served anywhere! Still good service and atmosphere.

Staff was friendly, but waiter was borderline incompetent. We were the first table in one of the overflow areas and it was like someone forgot to tell the waiter we were there. Then he kept forgetting about us. The interior is charming, different, with a relaxing upscale atmosphere. Hostess saw things weren't going right and tried to make up for... More

I have been going to Clark's since 2008, probably around 25 visits. The food was GREAT - I said WAS. We noticed it degrading over the past year but our last visit was the absolute WORSE. I ordered prime rib and although it looked good, it was awful. I could barely cut it with a sharp steak knife and it... More

This was a very average breakfast, there was nothing wrong with it, but just a normal breakfast. If you are looking for a standard fare, this is the place.

I love the inside. feels like home. Went for Thanksgiving with family. The food though was a disappointment. the prime rib was a strange HUNK of meat that resembled a large door stop. It was also dry and after awhile my jaw hurt from chewing. the mashed potatoes were the instant kind and not very good the salad had so... More

Tired of the usual standbys when traveling up and down I-95? Forgo Applebee's, Red Lobster etc. and try Clark's. Good drinks, tasty "comfort food", pleasant atmosphere and welcoming staff. Enjoyed the chicken dishes.

Food was okay ambience nice and quiet. It's very over rated as many of the people in the area recommended it as we stayed at a near by hotel. Over priced for what it really is. Keep it moving not worth the premium they charge.
