Fodor's Expert Review Clark's Oyster Bar

$$ Central Austin, Downtown, and Capitol Area Seafood Fodor's Choice

The fifth of local restaurateur Larry McGuire's white-hot portfolio, which includes Jeffrey’s, Lamberts, and Elizabeth Street Café, Clark’s has found a seat in the Austin repertoire of hotspots since its 2012 debut. The hip, and decidedly cozy, oyster bar tucked into a modest corner lot of West 6th has all the appeal of a sophisticated seafood restaurant, with the comfort of a neighborhood bistro. You'll find a pristine, daily-rotation of raw oysters served with fresh horseradish, house cocktail sauce and a tangy mignonette. The lobster roll is a signature home run, but the house burger is a surprising favorite, which spikes in popularity during the daily happy hour, when select dishes are half off and all martinis are $5.
