South Siesta Key Food Find

Clayton's is a neighborhood fixture on Siesta Key's south end that allows visitors and locals to avoid driving north to the village for a good meal. The freshest seafood, innovative menu and relaxed atmosphere of a tavern make Clayton's a great choice for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

This restaurant was recommended to us by friends, and it was a great tip. The food is prepared by a chef that really cares about flavor and ingredients, and you can tell as soon as you start eating. We were here for dinner, and the service was great and suggestions by the staff were perfect. We had two appetizers, a... More

Clayton's has a relaxed feel with very good food, great bartenders (especially Ginny), great happy hour drink and appetizers/bar snacks specials! My favorites are the pizza and calamari, but our friends also fancy the bruschetta. Employees are friendly, a great place to meet friends for happy hour or bring the whole family. Dress is causal (near Crescent & Siesta Key... More

A newer take is now on the menu for many of the same entrees that have been around for years. Was excellent tonight! Had a bowl of Seafood Chowder with two spoons. Very creamy and tasty. Then on the the main courses: Trout Almondine and Macadamia Nut Crusted Grouper. Both fishes were very fresh, tasted great and very nicely presented... More

2 adults and 3 kids (10 to 15), found something to suit us all. Ordered extra portion of the coconut shrimp as it was so good! Duck excellent and kids enjoyed the traditional pizzas. Large desserts. Very friendly wait staff - we had a lovely evening!

Off the main drag, an upscale spot that has a higher end menu that would be more fitting in the northern part of the island. Good spot for couples but families should probably think twice.

Siesta Key is beautiful on it's own, but this is a super great place to eat. We arrived late our first night in town and happened upon this restaurant. Boy are we glad we did. The fish tacos are amazing and the pasta dish as well. We are going back on our last night. Super service, super food.
