There are plenty of new places to try that can become your favorite place to go. So let's make Clearfield part of your Valentines Day story this year.

Asian/Sushi

Tepanyaki
1386 Legend Hills Dr
4:00 – 9:00 PM

Dinner and a show awaits at Tepanyaki. Right off I-15 in Legend Hills this Japanese Steakhouse offers hibachi style cooking and a fun atmosphere. Watch your food get prepared right in front of your eyes, catch a shrimp in your mouth or enjoy a drink at the bar. This upscale restaurant will not disappoint.

Sushi Ya
1246 Legend Hills Dr A8 & 9
11:30 AM – 10:00 PM

As the name indicates this is definitely a stop you want to make in Clearfield for sushi. You have the option to either purchase rolls individually or order buffet style. Order a classic Las Vegas Roll or try something a little more exotic with a Jason Hand Roll. With over 50 different sushi rolls and nigiri available from their menu any sushi lover should make this a top spot this Valentine’s Day.

Golden Ginger
1020 W 300 N
11:00 AM – 9:30 PM

This Chinese fusion restaurant surprises in every way. You would never guess that this used to be a gas station by the amount of seating and the care the owners have taken in the décor. This is a great compromise restaurant if you want sushi but your significant other is more of a sweet and sour chicken person. With healthy portions and a smaller price tag you can save some cash for some flowers or some chocolates. Many claim that this is some of the best sushi in the area and suggest the Liz and Déjà vu Rolls. This is truly one of Clearfield’s hidden gems.

Other notable Clearfield restaurants:

Mexican/Latin American

Argentine Corner
442 N Main St # J
11:00 AM – 9:00 PM

Opening its doors in 2005, Argentine Corner has had to expand three times just to fit the crowds of people wanting to enjoy fresh made to order food. Winner of Best of Utah for their Pizza, BBQ asado, and Forked Tongue appetizer, there is something for everyone. Enjoy a kitschy atmosphere that makes you feel as if you are eating in the home of your friends.

Other notable Clearfield restaurants:

Deli/American

Philadelphia Sub Shop
189 State St # 125
10:30 AM – 6:00 PM

Ok, so this won’t be a dinner option unless you pick it up and take it home. The Philadelphia Sub Shop has a wide variety of subs and as you may have guessed a famous Philadelphia Cheesesteak. All steaks can be made with chicken, pork or beef and cooked to perfection.  If you are in the area you can smell the restaurant before you can see it. Maybe not the most romantic spots in Clearfield, but boy is it delicious.

Café Central
G4, Freeport Industrial Parkway West
7:00 AM – 2:00 PM

This isn’t your typical café. Located within the Freeport Center at the Davis School District’s Nutrition Services building it is school lunch times 10. With a diverse breakfast and lunch menu there is something for everyone. Sandwiches come with a healthy portion of meat, salads have fresh ingredients. Just in case you are wanting some nostalgia in your life don’t forget to order a peanut butter finger or brownie. It will make you feel as if you are in elementary school again.

Other notable Clearfield restaurants:

Pizza/Italian

Rita’s Pizzeria
1296 W 300 N
11:00 AM – 9:00 PM

One of Clearfield’s staples, Rita’s has been around for quite some time and there is a reason for that. The pizza is carefully prepared to order and is quite fast. You can choose between hot, medium, or mild sauce for your pizza to make sure it is exactly how you like it. Not many know that you can dine-in and they serve much more than pizza. Try some lasagna or a sub if you aren’t in the mood for some delicious pizza.

Lucky Slice
1246 S Legend Hills Dr
11:00 AM – 9:00 PM

This transplant from Ogden brings their unique pizza flavors and laid-back atmosphere. You can order pizza by the slice allowing you to try different kinds. It is perfect if you have different tastes. If you are on a budget order the #2 combo which comes with 2 slices and a drink for less than $9. Portions are hefty so one slice could be enough, but then you couldn’t try one Thai Curry Pizza and one Pepperoni. When you are done don’t forget to play some Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the way out.
