5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2015 NEW

The environment was great for beach, food was just ok, staff was great. The bands were entertaining and the sitting area was more than plentiful and not crowed, even when busy. The deck is hot so have shoes/flip flops. There are a few covered sitting areas, but not many. Don't expect excellent tasting food or cheap prices.

Best Food & Great Drinks! Right on the beach watching the ocean & the skydivers land! If you have not eaten at Clayton's make sure you do on your next trip to South Padre!!

If you are a young adult, this place is for you. The food is average bar food, drinks are as expected but pricy. It's hopping with the younger set.

Not a family place at all! Young college kids or HS grads, a lot of beer drinking on the beach and restaurant is packed and LOUD. Keep your kids away from these drunk drivers!

Yes, this place is right on the beach and is very easily accessible, BUT the price you pay for the drinks is simply not worth it to me. The food however is good and decently priced. The place is clean and has a firework show on the weekend. Also, it's really big and typically has live music. Go for the... More

You order your food and drinks at the bar. This is a large bar with an expansive deck overlooking the ocean. It is not fine dining but more a place for snacks along with drinks. Basic bar food. People of all ages enjoy the outdoor beach atmosphere and the fireworks on the weekends are terrific.

We could walk here from our motel, great atmosphere. Live band played in the evening and it was very spacious so it never felt over crowded even though it was busy. Great spot to watch fireworks.

Order at bar only for drinks and meal. Food is very good. Atmosphere is pretty cool. Right on the beach, great ace to chill for lunch and afternoon wave watching!
