“Great Burger!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

Clarke's is away from the craziness of Ocean Ave. and has a great burger. Amber was our server and she did a great job taking care of us. The burgers are $12 but worth it, must have been a half pound of meat and cooked to perfection. From the outside it does not look like much but inside it has the feel of a modern Irish pub.

“Casual reliable upscale pub fare in SoFi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

This neighborhood jewel is the type of place that's a comfortable favorite, with very good Irish pub fare (some standards like fish 'n' chips, Shepherd's pie) plus some decidedly upscale additions. There are some big TVs at the bar for sports fans. The decor is fresher than the average pub; the wood-paneled room looks more like the casual dining at a nice country club. Clubby in fact is the feel, drawing heavily on the SoFi residents.

“Not your Ordinary SoBe Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

Stopped in on Thursday night after a day of walking in the Art Deco section of South Beach. Our hostess seated us promptly and I noticed the ambiance was more relaxing not your typical hurry up and getem out tourist trap.

Sipped some Guinness while waiting for my steak sandwich which arrived in short order. I noticed the steak was cooked just right - not over or under done. Something in the sauce had a zip to it, might have been some peppers with the onioins. Either way it was tasty and hit the spot.

Clarke's is a great place to relax and unwind with some good food and good conversation and not feel like you were 'just a tourist.'
