What Our Customers Are Saying

"Clark’s is easy to find, but hard to leave!”

"On our recent visit to some friends in Fayetteville, we stopped in Santee and visited Clark’s.

Our room was very comfortable and our meal in the restaurant was excellent. Staying at Clark’s was one of the highlights of our trip!

Also, we appreciated the gift shop and the Santee Digest.

Prior to our trip, I searched online for good places to stay. As I recall, we found you on the I-95 exit guide site.

We appreciate that Clark’s is family run and look forward to visiting again."

Appreciatively,
James

“Love this place. It never disappoints. Our traditional stop on our way to and from Florida so happy to find that they've reopened after carona shutdown ”

Clark's Restaurant, located in Santee, South Carolina, was a pleasurable dining experience. If you want the really good restaurants ask the locals. And the locals said to eat at Clark's. We sat outside in the courtyard, which was comfortable and quaint. The wait staff were friendly and attentive. The building is very nice, with an Inn attached. The food was good!

We stopped for the night this past Friday on our way home from Richmond and had a wonderful dinner in the courtyard. To the couple we met from Holly Hill who paid for our dinner, Semper Fi to your father and grandfather. We tried to pay it forward to our server and hope she benefits. Our fried chicken dinner was excellent. Our room was cozy and we met some great fellas from Millen Georgia (Go Dawgs!) and shared some laughs as well as drinks and cards. My wife had just lost her mother and the whole experience was salve to her heart. Looking forward to future visits.

“We stay at here every time we drive down. The people are so nice ,the food from the diner is excellent. The breakfast is a full meal and they gave us a full container of coffee for the road. Great Place”

A. Weinberg

“We ate at the bar on the way up to Boston and absolutely loved the atmosphere and service. We decided to stay at the hotel on the way back. Rooms were beautiful and very reasonably priced. Had dinner at the bar and Jonathan, the bartender, remembered us! Made us feel very at home. We will definitely be staying here again and again on our travels!”

K. Manning

“Hubs and I fell in love with our dining experience five or so years ago, and make a point of stopping here every time we travel from Florida to North Carolina and Ohio. Finally spent the night this Spring and was delighted with our room and the swimming pool. Have recommended to many.”

“I had my wedding at Clarks inn on November 14th. I didn’t want to worry about setting up or breaking down so I left it up to them to set up the dining area and center pieces. It was absolutely gorgeous, I couldn’t have planned it any better! We got married in the small courtyard by the fountain and had ample room for our 60 guests. After dinner we moved across the parking lot to the Santee Room for the reception. It was so convenient having everything at one area! There was a set up for our DJ, the courtyard had a bonfire going for us with chairs as it was cold, and when the night was over we walked 30 feet to our honeymoon suite, can’t beat that!

Clarks was very accommodating, the food is beyond delicious! I highly recommend the tuna steak and I’m not a seafood person normally, it’s that good. The old charm and friendly staff make this place a must see if you’re looking for venues.”

J. Bush

Nice and clean, comfortable beds and included breakfast that was sit down restaurant quality. Great place to stop and rest if you are heading south on 95.

R Brittingham

Clarks is a long-term institution in Santee. The decor has dark wood splendor. The staff are always friendly and the food is above average.

S Weir

We enjoy having dinner in the bar area. The food is always very good! Since Clarke's INN is right off of I95 at exit 98 it is a hot spot for travelers.

S Rogers

Those Fried Mushrooms!!!! Well lit place to Supercharge your Tesla in the parking lot.

Paul Hoke

Always enjoy our stay at Clark's. Clean accommodations, great atmosphere and food!

T Eyre

What's not to love about Clark's Restaurant? Old time Southern charm and hospitality in a plantation looking building with a large bar area and separate dining room, even a gift shop! Delicious food, too!

G LeCompte

Stay here if you are on 95 near exit 98 in SC. The rooms are acceptable, each with it's own little library (bring books to donate) but the restaurant ambience cannot be topped! The bar, IMHO, is better than you will find anywhere on 95

Tracy

Pleasant surprise on our stopover. Food is delicious and freshly made. Staff is very friendly. Would be back if in the area again

I Shashchuk

We went there for my mother in law's birthday. The room we had was quiet and comfortable. The staff were very nice. The food was amazing! Food service was slow but I promise it was worth the wait! We had the chicken, chicken livers, Monte Cristo sandwich (so awesome), fish, shrimp salad, and chicken salad. Everyone loved what they had!

E Andreas

Food was delicious. Service excellent. All staff members were wearing masks. We stop in here frequently to visit with our favorite bartender. Thank you, Danny.

J Lutz

I absolutely love this place. The food is really amazing and staff are so incredibly nice and accommodating. I use to cook professionally and also worked the front of the house too. If I was to open a a restaurant I'd want ppl like Edward and Dalton. Seriously made my day. This is an absolutely wonderful establishment and I will be back. Sunday evenings are my cheat night. This is been my favorite hamburger in quite a while. Fries and coleslaw were were equally perfect.
EXCELLENT FOOD.

Lauren H.

Great food, good service, and a very nice place to eat dinner

J Cosenza

Long journey down the east corridor, I found this establishment by the hotel. Very nice atmosphere and layout. Glad to see a rather super-sized portion of spaghetti and meatball, and a good sized red wine was a bonus. Bummer they had zero bread of any kind, but the very good service made up for that miss. I’d recommend stop here on your travels.

J Metz

Stopped in Santee SC on the way to Florida. Dinner at Clark's was excellent. Service was fantastic. Meatball appetizer was delicious. Fried chicken diner was very good.

Matt C

We were looking for a nice place to watch a virtual wedding and then have dinner after. They accommodated us so well. It was a lovely setting for a wedding. Great good and service as well.

A Brennan

The service was spot on. Our server Aaron was very kind and knew the menu well. The food was plated beautifully. Needed a little more season on the grits but overall good.

Nice place!! Very clean and romantic

C Schoenfeldt Payne

Interesting old home motif. We stopped in for a Saturday lunch while traveling. Somewhat limited menu consisting mainly of paying sandwiches and salads with soup. Great atmosphere! Beautiful decor! It's well worth the stop if your travels take you by.

Jim O

What a charming lunch on lovely patio!
Pricey but a real treat compared to fast food options. The place reminds me of the way dining used to be. A nice relaxing stop when making the slog on I-95.

Patrick K.

Ordered delivery. This was the best meal that I could have ever dreamed of eating in a hotel room!!!! The COVID time we live in limits our options now a days but if I ever stop through Santee SC ever again I WILL eat here again! I wish I could have given them more stars! Great job! You guys knocked it out of the park.

M Thompson

Great food, friendly staff

R Tuck

After trying three or four restaurants that practiced "social distancing, face masks, etc., we walked into Clark's Inn and were immediately greeted and reassured they indeed followed these safely protocols. The servers were all wearing face masks and gloves. What a delight! In addition, the dining room was lovely, quiet, and the food delicious. This place is a real find.

Nice restaurant good food

S Jackson

My family has often eaten at Clarks when they travel and I finally got to experience just how delicious the food truly is. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. The portions were generous and quite delicious. I would definitely suggest the Sea Bass or Roasted Chicken and the homemade desserts are definitely a great end to a delicious meal.

A pleasant surprise off I95!! We stopped here for lunch while traveling home. My husband got salmon and I had salad with honey chicken. We both had banana pudding for dessert (free with meals). It was very affordable too (less than $40 for us both). I still can't get over the price for such quality food. We cleaned the plates wasn't anything left! So good!!! Exit 98 in Santee, SC heading north!

If you own a Tesla, this is absolutely the best place around to stop for the night and get some rest. Clean and quiet rooms. Supercharger located in the same parking lot.

R Moore

We were visiting the area and stopped at Clarks for lunch. Greeted by a very friendly gentleman at the desk. It is a very pretty place. Our waitress, Sylvia was very nice. The atmosphere was beautiful and the food was great. We might go back one more time before we leave, it was that good. Social distancing and masks were worn. Highly recommend! I had soup and a salad, my hubby had a turkey panini. Date of visit: November 2020

Wonderful, clean and homey overnight stay and delicious restaurant!

I was traveling & enjoyed a meal at Clark's. The food was delicious & the service prompt and friendly. I was very pleased to find the restaurant practicing the social distant rules along with sanitation. The ambiance was was relaxing and quit unique. I am looking forward to my next visit.
