Great beach bar, they have a live band on the weekends and the drinks are not a crazy price. No cover when we went, check out the sand castles on the beach in back.

On the beach in which you can buy drinks, good food and clean restrooms. Plenty of chairs to listen to good music. Love it.

Great atmosphere. Good drinks. Great band location. Fun event at the time (sandcastle building contest). Stopped by here for drinks before dinner. Likely will come back to hang during daytime beach day.

Never has a place so obviously survived purely because of its location. Clayton's has one thing alone going for it: being directly on the beach. It's not even pretending that it's going for anything else, it's putting the absolute minimum effort in to cater to drunken vacationers who just want a bar that's directly on the beach. They're not even... More

There is no service, food is only tolerable, great view. I would only recommend this place if you want to get drunk and listen to good but really loud music. I think all of the employees must be deaf by now. They have a fantastic fireworks show on the weekend.

Went with a group of friends, loved the atmosphere. The view, the seating, the music; overall everything was great. My only gripe are the drinks, had the frozen margaritas, they were very weak and sweet. I suggest you get there early enough to enjoy the sunset, and stick around to see the fireworks.

We stopped in the 1st evening we were in South Padre Island and were so glad that we did!! We both got the fish tacos and they were really good. Fresh fish grilled up and the sauce they put on the tacos made them!! Now the Pina Coladas. Yes they come out of a frozen machine, but they are one... More

This is a wonderful place to enjoy the Gulf of Mexico. Come play volleyball, swim in the tide and then kick back for a frozen drink and Mexican Style Shrimp Cocktail served like Salsa with tortilla chips.
