Forget the tourist trap restaurants all over South Beach. Clarke's is a real find. Centrally located, with easy parking, Clarke's is run by Laura Cullen, who comes from a NY restaurant family, and she and her attentive staff will make you feel like a regular even on a first visit. It has the feel of an upscale Irish pub, with a great bar (drinks are generous), and super food from burgers to bangers and mash to fish and chips to sesame crusted ahi tuna (best burger on the Beach!). Wine list is extensive and reasonably priced. This restuarant is always packed with locals who love it, and it seems like a constant big party. If you want top notch food, reasonable prices, and a ton of fun, get over to Clarke's. You're sure to love it. It's one of our favorites, and we live in South Beach.
Pros: Fun atmosphere, great food, super drinks and wine list
