I can't recall how we discovered Clayton's Siesta Grille. Someone recommended it to us a few years ago when we were looking for a good place for breakfast on a rainy morning. I suppose it was the cashier at the nearby Crescent Market. Whoever made the recommendation, we are eternally grateful. Whether you want breakfast, lunch or dinner, Clayton's will... More

We moved to the Gulf Gate area (about 15 minutes from Clayton's) a year ago. Slowly but surely we are working our way through the various "local" restaurant choices. We have tended to stay away from Siesta Key due to the impression it is a "tourist" area. We like good food and decent prices, two things not usually found in... More

Can't go wrong with the grouper here. Just be careful of where you sit before the sun sets. There are tables where you are blinded by the sun, directly or bouncing off vehicles parked outside. The staff did try to help by hanging a tablecloth to block the sun, but the earth does rotate. It's rude to wear your sunglasses... More

This place was in walking distance from our condo. We couldn't believe such a great restaurant was hiding so close to us. Real nice find thanks to TA. Would go again anytime in the area.

As we vacationed in Siesta Key for a week in August, we made it a point to dine out with friends at Clayton's twice during our weeks' stay. Of all of the restaurants on Siesta Key, from the village to this end of the key, I personally believe Clayton's is one of the best options in Siesta Key. Service: Our... More

Great food and very good service. I eat at CSG several times on every visit to Siesta Key. They can get very busy so come early, or be patient. It's worth the wait.

Thank you to a local who suggested we try Clayton's. Clayton came to our table and welcomed us to his restaurant and chatted for a bit. Jim our waiter was most accommodating and made perfect dinner suggestions. We shared the Goat Cheese and Tomato Jam Jar, the Moroccan Chickpea Cake and the Macadamia Nut crusted Grouper along wit a couple... More

We made our reservation through Open Table and were seated immediately. Our waiter was very patient as we spent considerable time mulling over wine choices, and offered us a taste of our selection before we needed to commit. I had the trout almondine - really excellent; my husband's vegetarian meal was good and he raved about the seafood chowder. This... More
