The salad bar is basic, but very fresh. Not a bunch of EXOTIC stuff you will not eat anyway. The steaks are cooked, my wife and I share a rib eye and a shout plate charge gives you salad and a side. Then the desserts... you can count on all off them being very good. We like the buttermilk pie.

We live in Clayton and this is one of our regular spots for "date night." Not a big meat eater, so I can't say much about the steaks, but I do enjoy their Frenched chicken breast, which has a little bit of the buffalo wing still attached and is always perfectly cooked. Good salad bar, impeccable service. Highly recommended is... More

The food was just ok, not a good value for the price paid. The salad bar was the best part of my meal.

I'm picky with my ribeye steaks! The marbling has to be just right and the seasoning not too overbearing. I found the PERFECT ribeye here! Michael knows how to cook them. The wait staff is always friendly and I enjoy coming here!

I was disappointed in the steakhouse. First of all if you are paying for service, I believe one should not have to get up and get one's own salad. The salad should be served and have quality ingredients. The steaks were mediocre to good depending on the cut of meat you ordered. The filet was good. The cook on the... More

We headed out to another restaurant on this Saturday evening. They were closed for vacation. Kudos to them! We ended up at the Clayton Steakhouse. Our fortune. It was the best steak I have had in a long time. The service was stellar. The desserts, which are made by the owner at the B & B around the corner, were... More

We have eaten here several times and it is always delicious! They have a nice variety of steaks to choose from and the salad bar is always fresh! It's a little small so would recommend reservations if you plan to go on a weekend night or holiday. Would definitely recommend a visit!
