Starboard Market is a MUST for lunch in Clear Lake. I’ve never ordered anything I didn’t love. Sandwiches, salads, soups, desserts, it’s so hard to choose!

Such a great family run restaurant. Always a wide selection of sandwiches, soup, salads and desserts! Made from scratch right there on Main Street. Friendly waitstaff and always a buzz at the tables. A great addition to downtown Clear Lake Iowa.

The menu is vast and has many options to be able to please everyone's taste. The young ladie who owns the deli is amazing and her staff are the best. Always have fresh salads and sandwiches are made as you wait and watch.

We went on a Saturday and the line was forming at 10:45 and they did not actually open until 11:15ish. Food was great and worth the wait. Seating is tight but they make the most of their space.

We ordered our sandwiches to go for a picnic at the beach. The selection was almost overwhelming but we selected a variety and all were great. Then we turned and saw the dessert options and almost left the sandwiches do we could have more dessert!...More

We stopped her for lunch on a Monday. the place is small and crowded. Once we got our food, I could understand why. It may be the best sandwich I ever had! The meat was piled high and the bread was fresh. It seems expensive...until...More

I love the selection of items. I have had various sandwiches and they have all been good. The "Granny" with chicken and Granny Smith is my favorite. Their dessert bars and slices of cake are huge. It can get crowded and seating space inside is...More
