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.

We found Clayton's Siesta Grille by accident. Two years ago, we were looking for something else, took a wrong turn and discovered Clayton's. Now we keep going back. It isn't the best restaurant in town and the food isn't the best. But it's a homespun atmosphere with friendly and folksy service, consistently good food and plenty of it. Some people... More

We were waiting for our boat rental at the marina across the street and wanted to eat breakfast before our long day on the water. Our server was extremely friendly and made us feel at home. The owner was there having breakfast also and he is a really great guy, friendly and down to earth. The decor in the restaurant... More

Hubs ordered mushroom pizza with carmelized onions...he thought it was... More

On holiday with friends who had been at this restaurant a few days earlier they recommended it so off we went.. On arrival we were allocated two tables we asked for a four and a five as tables over 6 attract a... More

You have to look for this tucked away restaurant but it is worth the search. I tried the grouper and it was great. It is a really good restaurant and is on our list each year when we vacation.

The food is great and the presentation is beautiful. I enjoy fine wines,fine dining and really... More

Went to the beach and wanted a FRESH fish sandwich. After going to three different places, found this place. Great find. Calamari was some of the best I've had. Fresh crispy goodness. Ordered mahi sandwich off menu, no problem. Casual atmosphere, great food, very accommodating to off menu requests and the freshest seafood in town. I plan on making it... More

We caught red snapper on memorial day in the gulf of Mexico and called claytons to have them prepare our fish dinner for 4 of us. No problem at all they said. They first surprised us with an appetizer of our fish for us that was wonderful....very thoughtful. Next came a family style platter that had risotto and grilled mixed... More
