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 is king. Service is very correct, even with the raucous atmosphere. A fun place!

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.

Went back to get some oysters. Clark's has a wonderful choice of oysters ( Best in Texas) and the freshness and the quality is always perfect. The place is always packed, so even with a reservation you will most likely wait. The service is decent, something you feel rushed and your check is dropped on the table before you can order a coffee.
the wine list is very interesting and you can find a great wine as a great price.

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 said it was very good as well.
Downside - funky seasoning on the endive celery and pear salad. Salad would have been better without the excess seasoning.
Staff was great, waitress was great and we were seated pretty much at our reservation time. Our moc-tale tasted as good as the real mojito. They looked great too.
Ambiance is typical “Austin old-house-converted-into-a-cool restaurant” place. Parking is a challenge; plan ahead to walk a few blocks back to the restaurant.
We did see many people enjoying the various oysters. I do suggest you go and try it yourself.

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 which I ordered. Wine list also good, including ample by-the-glass options. An amazing place and very highly recommended.
