Great place to take the family but stay true to the times a family will attend. When people are present the food is great. When not so many people are ther the food is in-consistent.

Clarks is a nice alternative to chain restaurants. It is conveniently located for those interstate travelers that want something a little different. They have a great menu with a wide variety of food choices from seafood to home cooking favorites.

Clark's is a nice local, family style restaurant in Athens. We stopped in for lunch and had catfish and a trio salad. Would recommend both. Neat place to get away from the restaurant chains in town.

Clark's offers American style good food. The service was very good. The atmosphere was friendly. It is just off interstate I-65. Though the prices are on the higher end for this area, they are fair prices for a sit down dinner.
