We were visiting friends who live in the area and they recommended Clark's. Reminded me of a meat & three, but better. The selection was broad with daily specials. They have a friendly staff who go out of their way to make sure you are satisfied with your dining experience. The food was very good and judging from the long... More

I am a true believer in local places to support small business and the families who run them. This is one of those places! Without TripAdvisor, I wouldn't have known about it. We were headed home from vacation and checked out the app for lunch close by a gas station. This is on the street behind Raceway gas, perfection!! I... More

Restaurant was within walking distance from motel. Tastefully decorated and arranged. Had multiple dinner options and all personnel were friendly and helpful. It appeared that many customers were local repeat business. Rating this excellent isn't intended to make this a 5 star restaurant. It appeared to be a family business than offers a good option to chain restaurants which we... More

Only had lunch here but it was very good. Very pleasant atmosphere with soft music. Ruben sandwich was excellent and may be better than Callahan's in Destin. Hope to go back for dinner. Check hours of operation because they have odd hours.

Our family visited Clark's for Sunday lunch for the first time in at least 5 years. FYI, usually it is too crowded. We had the Prime Rib lunch special and this meal is very good including side salad, rolls, potato choice and veg of the day for $9.95. The service was also very good. Note: the other lunch special was... More

Spent $40 before tip on a grilled chicken salad, teriyaki wings, and the surf and turf. Really liked the wings. Even Evert the salad was average, the steak was absent flavor, and the shrimp scampi was more like lemon shrimp. The staff was polite and professional, no issue with service. I just didn't care for the food.

When my brother-in-law treated us to dinner here five years ago, I was really impressed that you could find a fine dining establishment in Athens with a down-home service attitude. So, we decided to reciprocate on this visit, hoping that things had not changed too much. Fortunately, service is still top notch, and the menu is as good as ever,... More
