“A really neat place”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

I like Clark's. I'd say the food is fairly average, but the staff is so friendly and the building itself make it a really cool place to have lunch!

“Homestyle, classic cooking!”
Reviewed November 7, 2013 via mobile

We popped into Clark's while stopping in Cold Lake for business.

What a treat! The decor is very eclectic - reminiscent of a cross between your grandmother's house and a old-school burger shack - very cozy and quirky. Awesome view right into the lake!

As a group, we sampled the burgers and fish and chips (their specialty)! Very good - homemade beef patties on the burgers and fresh fish (caught from Cold Lake) battered and fried. Make sure to also try their homemade pies (flavours of the day were: apple, strawberry-rhubarb, and coconut cream!)

Overall, I'd highly recommend a stop here!

“LOVE this place!”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

Prime rib? Best in town. Fish 'n' chips? Best in town. Liver and onions? YES, they have it (probably the only place in town, but as good as any, anywhere). Real milkshakes. Great atmosphere, great service. Outstanding view of lake and marina. I love this place.

“Prime Rib Fridays”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

By far the best prime rib dinner I have had in years. Come early and if you can reserve a spot. A very fun local place to come for a meal. Food is fresh service is excellent.

“Surprised its #2”
Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

Pros.
Really neat old dinner atmosphere
Lake views

Cons
Worst service I have ever had in the hundreds of places I have been, never even were asked how our food was or if we would like refills or another drink. There were about 4 employees there and only 2 other customers other than us (4)
We watched an employee walk by the station where food was to be picked up and literally eat off a customers plate and then without washing his hands he begin preparing ceased salads with his bare hands that had just been in his mouth and snacking while prepping. We were so apauled at this unsafe practice of food handelling that we immediately stopped eating and left. The employee that was doing this only looked to be between 12-14 years old.

Anyhow because of the grotesque manner in which the service and food safety is we will never return which is to bad cause it was a neat lil spot.
