Great find!

This place was so good! They are right over the bridge from Sarasota to siesta key. They have outdoor seating which was great because we could bring our dog to dinner. The food was all delicious. The bread is amazing, don't over order because you will want to eat all the bread. The crab cakes were... read more

Went last night on the ratings of tripadvisor. What a surprise the atmosphere and food was well worth the price. Asked to see the chef and he came out and talked for us for a few minutes. Did not even know this jewel existed. We will definitely go back.

I love the convenience of Claytons…but the last few times we've been there it's been so noisy you can make yourself heard or hear anything. It tends to be very local…which is nice. But…the music was too loud and the general acoustics were inadequate. It will be a while before we try it again.

Friday night was one busy place at Claytons, but the happy hour and food were fantastic. They really know how to handle a crowd at Claytons! I met a woman on the beach who recommended I try this restaurant, took her advice, and was happy I did!

We took in some shark we caught on our fishing trip and they cooked it! Chef made a wonderful four different appetizer plate-yum! Oriental dipping sauces-was excellent... Blackened shark for main, wonderfully cooked. Excellent service too!

We had just arrived at our rental unit in Siesta Key and were hungry from traveling, so I looked up Yelp and found this place. It was great. My husband had the margarita pizza which was very good. It had a nice thin crispy crust and the right amount of tomatoes and mozzarella so it was not runny. My sister... More

We stayed nearby for three nights and walked here every morning for breakfast. All the meals were great and a good value. We loved it. I particularly enjoyed the Belguim Waffel and fresh fruit. My hubby loved the frittatas.

For the off season, the place was busy both inside and out. We did have reservations and had asked for a booth, which was where we were seated. Had wine with dinner and there were a few good choices for glasses. The 4 of us shared salads - the Caesar for us and the Arugula & Pear Salad for our... More

Three of us had trout almondine, scallops with risotto, and beef short ribs. While the seafood was good enough, the ribs really stood out with a tangy, bright flavor that blended well with the mashed potatoes. We also had the bananas foster that had a delicious rum sauce. Yum! We recommend it.
