by Jun 30, 2020Business, Partners, Restaurants, South Brunswick

Clark’s Seafood and Chop House is a family-owned restaurant in Little River, South Carolina.

Serving locally sourced seafood and modern American cuisine, it is located on the breathtakingly beautiful Coquina Harbor.

“In fact, our waterfront view of the marina is something that sets us apart from other restaurants in the area,” says Debbie Mozzicato, director of operations. “That and our attention to detail for each dish and our exceptional service.”
Mozzicato oversees the operations for all of the Callahan family restaurants, including Oyster Rock and Boundary House, both in Calabash.

With an extensive menu, Clark’s offers a tasty and varied dinner experience. From fresh, local seafood and Southern dishes like shrimp and grits and fried chicken Marsala to their USDA choice beef and steaks, the menu is designed to please everyone. In addition to their signature items, they also have new and exciting daily features.

“Some of our popular dishes include our fresh catch of the day, New York strip, Firecracker Shrimp, fresh oysters and our award-winning she-crab soup,” Mozzicato says. “We only serve the most tender USDA choice beef and the freshest of seafood available, so we feel confident in all of our menu items.”


Since 2012, when Clark’s first opened its doors, they have strived to make the dining experience comfortable for any night out, yet sophisticated for special occasions. Whether it’s their first visit or their tenth, diners can always expect professional and friendly service, an excellent atmosphere, soothing views, affordable prices and delicious, high-quality food.

A popular lunch time spot, Clark’s offers many of their dinner options beginning at 11 am, including soups, salads, burgers, steaks, seafood entrees and pastas. The restaurant is also housed in the same building as Sea Island Trading Co., a women’s clothing and gift boutique, so patrons can enjoy shopping before or after lunch with friends.

In addition to their tasty food, Clark’s offers an extensive wine list, including a large selection of wines by the glass. They also have hand-crafted cocktails and specialty drinks, such as the Cucumber Martini and Blueberry Bramble, and popular craft and domestic beers. Clark’s offers daily discounted drinks and a delicious assortment of specially priced appetizers for happy hour between 4 and 6 pm.

Clark’s Seafood & Chop House has a simple philosophy: relax. That’s what they want their guests to do. From the stunning backdrop of the harbor to the inviting ambiance, whether inside or at the outdoor bar, Clark’s is a place to unwind and put yourself in the hands of the staff. “At Clarks’s, our mission is to make each patron a returning guest. This is our highest compliment,” Mozzicato says.

Clark’s Seafood & Chop House, a favorite for locals and visitors alike, is open seven days a week for lunch from 11 am to 4 pm and for dinner starting at 4 pm. They accept reservations online.
