Always fun, relaxing, and clean!

My favorite place to unwind and have fun with friends, dates, or myself! Lol There is never a dull moment here during peak season.

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

Great place to have a drink or stroll the beach. The live music was good, the atmosphere laid back. Can't wait to visit again.

There was nothing we didn't like about Clayton's. Very relaxed and open. They were adding a stage so the Summer of 2015 will be a perfect place to visit.
