A blast for people watchers

There is a little of everything to watch here. Sit back, have a Turbo Pina colada and enjoy. The tacos (ground beef) were very good!

We visited Clayton's twice during the same trip to give it another shot the 2nd time. Both times we had problems with customer service making us feel like we should be honored just to be there or something, it's usually supposed to be the other way around. The customer pays the bills... We are very friendly travelers and honestly don't... More

We walked down to Claytons from the beach one night for dinner...for a casual setting and were pleasantly surprised by the wonderful food and friendly service. In SPI, this is a rare find. We ordered from a very friendly beach bartender whose name escapes me, but thanks for the sweet drinks! I had the shrimp tacos and my son the... More

We only had adult refreshment and nachos here, but this is where the action is for the young kids. It is the biggest beach bar with something going one day and night. Take the bus because the police are thick and looking for any reason to pull you over.

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... 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!

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
