Offering steaks and seafood, enjoy your evening out watching the sunset over Coquina Harbor at Clark’s Seafood & Chop House. This by far is one of our favorite places to dine in the NMB area. It is just a few minutes north of NMB in Little River. Look for the big sign on the right after you go across the big bridge. If you get to McDonalds, you have gone too far. Turn around and go back. It is worth it!
We love the filet and ribeye steaks at Clark’s. Their house salad is always good. If you like scallops, you should try them bacon wrapped. Its one of their signature appetizers.
