Fun place!

We came here multiple times on our trip. There were many things that we really liked. 1. Drinks are very good! 2. This is a nice place to access the beach. You are able to come right back up to the bar for drinks and food. 3. The chips and cheese are a great snack. Not sure how the other... read more

Right on the beach...perfect location. Their signature drinks were a bit pricey, but taste good. Music playing would have been good for a night time party crowd, but this was a weekday afternoon. Most of the patrons were snowbirds!

Ate here two days in a row for lunch. Absolutely loved the atmosphere, right on the beach, huge covered deck. The food Is OK but you really go for the view!

I read the reviews of Clayton's and wasn't sure that I wanted to try it, but boy am I glad we did. This is a very casual place. You go to the bar to order - no table service. We planned on being there for awhile so started a tab. After we had a few beers we decided to try... More

Spent the afternoon here at Clayton's. Great drinks, good music (not too loud) A great place to soak up a little sun and drink a rita or two.

The band was good, but the drinks were small and expensive and the fish tacos were terribly soggy. Would never go there again.

We visited Clayton's the first night we were on South Padre. We walked from our motel down the beach, so convenient. Unfortunately our week on the Island was cold and rainy, so they were not open any other days that we were there. :(

Claytons is a great place for big groups. They have a pina colda and margarita machine that made things quick and easy. I enjoyed they had 2 different areas, one was a big spacious area with lots of chairs and wide open. The other area had a plastic covering in case that wind got a little to crazy. We didn't... More
