Wife and I had lunch there today, and as usual, the food and service was excellent! Very friendly, extremely efficient waitress. The place was spotless. We eat there fairly often and have never had a bad meal or service. Would highly recommend to all. (On Sunday try their Prime Rib special; It's great and the reasonable price will please you.

Traveling south on the interstate and stopped for fuel and lunch at Denny's. The Denny's was full so I spied the Clark's Restaurant sign and gave it a try. We had a totally awesome lunch. I had Chicken and my wife had the prime rib. Both were excellent.

The best way to describe Clark's is - Simply Outstanding. My wife and I stopped at Clark's while passing thru Athens on a Friday night about 6:15. We were met at the door by a most gracious hostess. We were seated promptly and were greeted by a wonderful server. I ordered the rib-eye. My wife the chopped steak. We both... More

We were on our way home from vacation & arrived at the Hampton Inn & Suites (also a great find) late and hungry. We saw Clark's next door & it was crowded so checked the menu online and thought it looked worth a try for a to-go. My husband ordered the 10 oz ribeye (med) with baked potatoe, & asparagus... More

Nicest place I've found to eat in town. The place looks nice and service was good. I had the chicken parmesan. It was very good. I wouldn't mine coming back for super when/if I need a nice place to eat at in Athens.

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
