Clay's has closed down a few months ago. There is no sign out front so it is possible they may just be reorginizing, but they bare not open for business right now.

Service slow, steaks too thin. Sides were good. Drinks were o.k. Had to constantly wave a waitress down for service. Other entrées were o.k but for a "steak house" there was a lot to be desired. Understand the place has now closed.

We were staying just outside of Paris, KY, so we were looking for close restaurants for dinner. We had steak and pasta. The marinara sauce was delicious. My husband's steak was average. Our kids had fries and PB&J. The fresh squeezed lemonade is awesome. Our...More

Clay's "chocolate bread pudding" is more like a dense cake with a back note of rich, dark chocolate. Served warm with either homemade caramel or bourbon sauce, it is a unique treat. I have stopped in many times just for this dessert but have also...More

We came here on a week night. There were only 3-4 other people in the place. Our waitress, and older lady who loved to talk, spent most of her time visiting with the regulars. We waited about 45 minutes for our dinner. I could understand...More
