We always try to stop, overnight, in Santee, SC and have dinner at Clark's. Very nice décor, good menu and food. Service is very good.

In passing through Santee we ate at Clark's Inn. The service was prompt and very friendly. The restaurant is beautiful. My wife had a pasta dish and I had a Cheese Philly Steak Sandwich with a soft beverage. It was a little pricey for the meal we had but the food was good. I think it could be a little... More

No matter what you order here, it will be great as these folks know how to cook. I eat here whenever I travel through, but more and more, only on special occasions as they are becoming a bit pricey for a lunch. For a special occasion and great food it is okay every now and then though. They are always... More

Returning to Florida, we were looking for some good food off of I 95. The recent Hurricane Mathew had blown down two billboards, but we saw the one before the Santee exit. The Restaurant looked "fancy" and we were dressed in sweatshirts , no makeup. But they said we were fine, come on in. (It was a Monday night) Hubby... More

We have eaten here several times, most recently in October of 2016. Service and atmosphere were very good. The food was interesting. Slightly odd takes on some menu items. Dishes with cheese have a lot of cheese, almost too much. My husband had their take on a cheese steak with prime rib on Texas toast. Lots of cheese.

Had the soup of the day - beef barley - very hearty and filling. As a main course, I ordered the shrimp and avocado salad! Huge portion!! Service was very, very attentive and helpful with suggestions! A great meal and bargain for the price! You have to try the pecan pie and the butter pecan turtle dessert!!

Nice receptionist and waitress, friendly and courteous. Dated but attractive decor. However, the food was mediocre at best and priced way too high for what you get. Expected more home style country fare but the chicken salad was small and unimaginative and my husband's omlet was just ok.

Had a meal in the restaurant and found the food and service very good, not the first time I have eaten there and it will not be the last. The bar is also a friendly place for a quiet drink. A few years back I also booked a room and I also found it to be very good

This restaurant (with an attached motel) was a great find in the middle of rural South Carolina. The ambience was relaxing, the menu quite interesting and the food was great.

Clark's Inn is like going back in time. The room I stayed in was very clean and comfortable. The wood furniture, built-in bookcase and built-in closet were nice touches. Pictures, mirror, comfortable chairs and bed. The one downside was no mini-fridge or microwave ---- I would have liked those. The staff was very courteous and helpful. Ate breakfast at the... More
