Bringing car in for brake fluid flush, will they work on the clutch as well?

I've noticed that my clutch is a little "spongy" lately, but I think it could be from the clutch stop (softer padded material compared to the hard plastic from OEM). I was quoted $90 for a brake fluid flush, does that sound like a reasonable price?

I doubt that any place will bleed your clutch unless you specifically ask for it. Which is also reason to believe that a shop could charge you separately for it, on top of the brake service. With that said I would think that a reasonable independent shop may just take care of your concern as it really is not a complicated task.
