We wanted to reveal the gender of our baby to the family at claytons and the guy who was there was so nice and so helpful and accommodating.

The location is great - you can sit along the railing and watch the surf and feel the ocean breeze - great for a person from the desert in Arizona - had drinks and appetizers and actually returned for an additional visit while we were in SPI.

Sitting and listening to the surface and live music with a nice breeze and cold brew....if you want more then go somewhere else, but if you want to just be in the moment and staying nearby... then this is a good place to start the evening
