Waitstaff was amazing and the food was delicious. It's just a jewel of southern charm. I would absolutely visit again next time I'm traveling.

Very relaxing atmosphere in a busy area off of 95. Service was good and the food was very good. It was nice to have a quiet sit down dinner with jazz music in the background. Fried green tomatoes were excellent. Scallops were good and the kids chicken tenders were real and freshly breaded. They also have a small bar and... More

If you are looking for a wonderful, first class, family owned, non franchise restaurant off I-95, Clark's Restaurant is a must stop. It's not fast food and will cost more, but it's worthwhile if that's what you want. Two dinners: short ribs with potato and vegetables, the other, salmon also with potato & veges cost $55 including tax & tip.... More

Making the straight through drive from FL to CT and stumbled upon this gem for breakfast. We were looking for something other than Cracker Barrel or Bojangles. We cut out the McDs and BK a long time ago. Clark's appearance and setting was nice, similar to the small inns found in upstate NY and New England. The service was quick... More

We were driving home from Florida and needed a place to stay for the night. We happened upon Clarks Inn and were pleasantly surprised how nice it was. The room was small, you need to stand behind the door to get out of the bathroom, but it was clean. They seem to go out of their way to try to... More

After checking into the Bates Motel next door aka the Howard Johnson, we were desperate for a decent place to eat. Well we found it. Wish I could remember the server's name but she was efficient and pleasant. Our eight year old grandson had chicken tenders, "they were not outstanding but they were good." We had short ribs which just... More

Food was good, very tasty and lots of it! All four of us took doggy bags home and had it for lunch the next day. We had heard mixed reviews about Clarks and we were pleasantly surprised at how good the place was. We ate in the bar area and everyone was nice and friendly. Definitely going back if we... More

The food here is good to average at best. The service is always slow, the food is way overpriced for the quality you get!! I am happy to pay a premium for a good meal but this is not the place to do it. Unfortunately there are not alot of options in Santee. Wilbur's down the street is about the... More
