Tark’s bills itself as a clam shack. It is one of those humble dining establishments that cranks out generous servings of damn good food. Our daughter, Rachel, is going to college in South Florida, and my husband stumbled onto Tark’s on a visit last year. (I think he stopped by two or three times on that trip.) During a recently trip, we took Rachel to Tark’s for dinner. Rachel had a fish sandwich, my husband had the fish platter, and I ordered the Saturday special, a pound of king crab legs ($15).
I think it may have been more than a pound. It seemed like I was eating crab for a very long time (and I shared!) Our waitress thought it was taking me a long time too and gave me a lesson in the proper method of cracking open the crab legs.
Rachel had to work the next day, but my sweetie and I made a second trip to Tark’s for lunch, Buffalo style shrimp and shrimp on the bar-b. I can’t wait to go back next year.
