We went on a lobster roll crawl in the Austin area and felt that Clark’s lobster roll was #1. Expensive at $34, but pretty amazing. Came with either super small hard to hold fries or Cole slaw.

Clarke's is small with fast and friendly service and a large bar area. The seafood is varied and includes an extensive oyster offering. There's a full bar which can get backed up at times. Kinda pricey but high quality. Minimal parking.

We happened upon Clark’s while visiting the Outdoor Voices store. We were visiting from North Carolina for spring break staying in Austin before heading to Big Bend National Park. Anyhow it was a beautiful day and we went there around 4pm. We had drinks, oysters...More

This is a happening place, esp on TGIF. Martinis, $5! Oysters are the big deal here, and they're superb. Freshly grated horseradish is a nice touch. Homemade bread is excellent. All fish is nicely cooked, particularly the crispy snapper. The food is good, but ambience...More

An amazing burger and two perfect martinis for $20 is a steal . Sit at the bar and enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells coming from the kitchen. Very friendly bartenders.

We went to Clark’s for their seafood offerings, not the oysters. We enjoyed our entree dishes- I liked the lobster roll very much and really had fun eating the Ilya skinny French fries which covered my meal entirely. My wife had the crab cake and...More

I have travelled to both coasts, but I have never been at a restaurant with 15 different oysters on their list. Very well served and presented by an excellent and knowledgeable staff. And not only that, the fish selection was top-notch, including the red fish...More

Clark's never disappoints. It is always delicious and I will go back over and over. It is small. Make reservations to ever have a table indoors. If not, sit at the bar. Their Bloody Mary is excellent.

We ate here twice in the last month. Lobster Roll first time, Shrimp Louie the second, and my wife had Shrimp Toast and Snapper. All four were excellent. Service was fine, but noise level was near intolerable. If you can eat outside it is better,...More
