“Valentines Disappointment”
Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

Four of us decided to go early (4:30) to Clayton's for Valentines. We ordered drinks and 7 different appetizer to share for dinner. After taking our order, the waiter returned to tell us we could not order pizzas, tacos or burgers that night. We were quite disappointed, but reordered. The food arrived promptly, was beautifully presented and tasty. Expect to pay higher prices than at other restaurants. The service was excellent. However, we do not think standard items we have ordered here before should be unavailable.

“Great meal”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

This is a very comfortable place to eat. The food was excellent. Salads were big, wellprepared, nice presentation and wonderful to eat. Brichetta was very tasty and 4 pieces perfect for two.
Steak was veryt good, duck was also good.
Very busy, but thought we had made reservations, they could not find them, but we were seated immediately at our time.
Definitely we will return.

“Great food!”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

had fish tacos and the beef spare ribs. Very tasty and reasonably priced. Service wasn't great, but the food more than made up for it!

“Fun and flavor”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

Do not be put off by appearances: this modest-looking establishment on Old Stickney Point Rd., just a couple of hundred feet off busy Midnight Pass Rd., serves delicious dishes in a fun-infused atmosphere; whenever we've been to Clayton's everyone, including the staff, seems to be having a grand time. One can dine at the well-stocked bar, in the main dining room or in an outside area that is semi-enclosed and warmed by space heaters when the mercury drops. Service has been impeccable at any of these ("Thank you, Scott!").
The short-ish menu delivers on its promises. We have enjoyed some of the best coconut shrimp and fried calamari --listed as appetizers but good enough to order for a 2d round as main courses. Another delightful appetizer: a perfect roasted beet salad. Main courses we deemed to be winners: the fish tacos, the macadamia nut encrusted grouper, the scallops with sweet pea risotto and a memorably juicy burger served with perfect fries. The beer, wine and spirits list is adequate and the bar crew knows a thing or two about well-mixed drinks.

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

Tucked away off the main road on Siesta Key is Clayton's Siesta Grille. They have a great outdoor patio which made a fabulous setting for Christmas dinner on my last visit there. Wonderful menu and delicious food. The wait staff is excellent. Check out the dessert sampler!!
