Understand, this is a BAR that serves food, but it is first and foremost a BAR, a Biker/working person's BAR, "Tavern" is a bit soft as a descriptor. There are a couple of tables on the sidewalk out front, inside the place is very crowded, and the music is very loud, expect that the bass will just about vibrate your plate off of the table. Conversation is difficult. BUT, do not allow that to scare you away, the food is certainly worth any discomfort from the music or crowded conditions.
Check out the menu on-line, find items that meet your needs and then get yourself on in. The place is a bit dark, so reading the menu at the table is difficult. There is a huge selection of beverages on tap, I had an Applehead Ale, the Server explained that all servings are a "pint" glass, my choice was $5 per pint glass. I like a menus of what is available on tap, including descriptors defining the flavor profiles, at Clark's there is a list of the names, written on a pillar.
My daughter had a Southern Comfort & Cake, $7, also served in a pint glass.
Our Server, Brandon, explained that he had only been working at Clark's for a couple of months, so had not tried all of the items on the menu, he is a very nice, nice person, very focused on our needs, had some suggestions, but seemed a bit uncomfortable. But, he is a genuine person and we enjoyed his company, and in the big picture, he is one of the reasons that we will return to Clark's. He has a welcoming personality and did a great job as a Server, was functional and gave us the proper amount of attention.
My Daughter ordered the Mac and Cheese, and we found it to be creamy, the pasta was al dente, a blend of cheeses, heavy on grated parmesan. Topped with toasted bits of pita bread, this dish was LARGE, in flavors and amount of serving size.
My Wife and I ordered the Tavern Hamburger, I added bacon and pepper-jack cheese. The burger comes with a bag of potato chips, a little bit of lettuce, a smudge of sliced red onion, and tomato. Pickles are not expensive, they add a nice flavor counterpoint to the rest of the plate. Lettuce is not expensive, and I would have preferred more on this plate, same for the onion. As to the chips, a bag of chips is consistent with grabbing a sandwich in a Biker Bar. A "Tavern" suggests that the place is a restaurant that serves beverages, Clark's is a bar that has food available, it is not really a "Tavern", as demonstrated by the bag of chips.
The burgers were ordered Medium Rare, arrived Medium. On the menu there is a notation that sandwich bread comes from (a local bakery), the buns were basic, nothing special, the burgers are advertised as including a burger sauce, which had a taste profile similar to that sauce used on a Big Mac. Next time I will ask for the sauce on the side as it detracted from the flavor of the sandwich.
The total for this adventure was: two burgers, each with a bag of chips, one bowl of Mac & Cheese, two beers, one Southern Comfort ... total $50.00
A fun experience with Brandon, but, a bit expensive, which probably explains why the entire time that we were there there was only one other table and two people sitting at the bar.
