“Fun evening out!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

Very close to our hotel! A couple of minutes up the beach. The food was excellent and fairly reasonable. The bands were excellent! They played fun beach music! Can't beat the location, right on the beach. The only thing that annoyed me was that the beach out front was a garbage dump by the end of the night! There were trash bins near by but apparently no one who spends time there through the day and evening could be bothered to take care of their trash! Maybe some signs, reminding people to take care of their mess would help? Sad to think this is needed!

“Lively up yourself at Clayton's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

Great beachfront bar.....Very much best location in all SPI in my opinion....Decent prices and order at bar service helps keep down costs. My go-to-place during my stay. Food not memorable but that's not why you go - location, music, drinks...Sluckumms gives a Thumbs Up!

“Typical boardwalk style eatery”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

No table service here. You order at the counter and the call you when your food is ready. Full bar. Reminded me of Jersey Shore boardwalk eateries. Very Crowded / loud music. But its right on the beach. You can walk up wearing your bathing suit only and have lunch. Food is decent but not exceptional. Perfect for people watching or if you don't want to bring a cooler with food to the beach.

“Nice view.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

Easy walk from hotel. Grill had beach front view and live music. Even though musicians not the best - they were live and we enjoyed it. Fish tacos were good and ample. Beer was cold. Seating area was clean and spacious. Would definitely go back.
