This was by far the best meal i've had on several trips to Sarasota. We all enjoyed our food, the drinks were great too, at very reasonable prices, even for being in a vacation area! I had the fish tacos, the best I have ever had. I can't wait to get back there!

Clayton's is a lovely restaurant on Old Stickney Point Road, so walkable from Crescent beach area. It has a variety of soups, sandwiches,pizza for lunch and a great choice of entrees for the evening. Well priced and well worth a visit. Clayton himself takes a personal interest in his guests and his staff are capable and friendly. Recommended

Save your money and go elsewhere. Have been there several times because a friend lives on the key, but there food is mediocre and the Friday night fish fry is $17. Go elsewhere to get better food for your money. Breakfast is usually cold and we have decided not to return.

We would encourage anyone that relies on Trip Advisor to check out the other reviews of this reviewer. This reviewer did not find one restaurant that pleased her in 9 reviews. Her statement that our AYCE Fish Fry is overpriced is not accurate.It would be accurate if we used a lower priced frozen fish. I guarantee our food quality, our... More

Clayton's Siesta key grill is not a pizza restaurant. Or is it? You would never know it by the great crust, super toppings and flavors on Clayton.s pizza pie. I just had one tonight. Try it, you will like it. Clayton's Siesta grill has a great menu of wonderful American style favorites and a full friendly bar offering.Steaks, seafood, and... More

Really good food with a nice casual atmosphere. We were staying on siesta key for a week and found this to be the best most reliable restaurant on the key. Not sure why trip advisor has this listed under Sarasota versus Siesta Key. Everything we ordered on two visits was well-prepared, service was outstanding, and the atmosphere was very relaxing...

This was an unexpected surprise. I've been coming to siesta key for over 16 years, and this is the best meal that I have had from a restaurant on the key. I got the crab and shrimp linguine, which was unbelievably good. My wife got the grouper which was the special of the night and she raved about it. We... More

What an unexpected find!! Love the low key atmosphere and friendly staff--owner was there to personally say hello and everyone was attentive in a fun and low key manner. Clearly this is a locals favorite. I noticed many couples and families come up to the owner and chat and thank him. All the food was fantastic but the fish chowder... More

We have been visiting Siesta Key for the past 5 years and just found Clayton's by accident, a Friday night fish fry sign on the street. We were pleasantly surprised that it was so much more than a 'fish fry' but an elegant, classy, dining experience. Our group of 11 including a toddler and an infant were catered to from... More

Always stop in here for a breakfast when on vacation on Siesta Key. Friendly service, good food and lovely start to the day! Kids loved their "teddy bear" pancake covered in banana, choc chips and syrup! Will return for an evening meal one day soon as menu looks interesting in the evenings.
