Tarks is a small place with counter service only and probably 20 to 25 seats. (okay there are a couple of tables outside but no service) The staff is an interesting and entertaining cast of characters and their banter always puts a smile on my face. It's a diverse crowd, ranging from cougars sporting their rocks and bling bling to blue collar workers escaping the sweltering South Florida heat. The beer is inexpensive and always cold. The food always hits the spot for me.
Tarks specializes in clams, oysters, seafood and wings. (raw, steamed and fried). My favorites include the gator tail, clam chowder, conch salad, dolphin sandwich, raw oysters, steamed clams, fried clam bellies, and shrimp grilled w/ BBQ or garlic sauce (not like the traditional New Orleans BBQ shrimp but a tasty alternative) Their wings garner rave reviews but they are breaded and on the heavy side and not my thing. They have reasonably priced daily specials plus a kids menu.
If you are a fan of clam shacks, seafood shacks or love shacks, I would check out Tarks.
Their motto is "Eat clams live longer, eats oysters love longer" My wife hopes they're half right....
