This was by far the best meal i've had on several trips to Sarasota. We all enjoyed our food, the drinks were great too, at very reasonable prices, even for being in a vacation area! I had the fish tacos, the best I have ever had. I can't wait to get back there!

“Clayton's Siesta Key”
Reviewed August 12, 2014

Clayton's is a lovely restaurant on Old Stickney Point Road, so walkable from Crescent beach area. It has a variety of soups, sandwiches,pizza for lunch and a great choice of entrees for the evening. Well priced and well worth a visit. Clayton himself takes a personal interest in his guests and his staff are capable and friendly. Recommended

“Overpriced because it is on the key”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

Save your money and go elsewhere. Have been there several times because a friend lives on the key, but there food is mediocre and the Friday night fish fry is $17. Go elsewhere to get better food for your money.
Breakfast is usually cold and we have decided not to return.

Clayton T, Owner at Clayton's Siesta Grille, responded to this review, August 12, 2014
We would encourage anyone that relies on Trip Advisor to check out the other reviews of this reviewer. This reviewer did not find one restaurant that pleased her in 9 reviews. Her statement that our AYCE Fish Fry is overpriced is not accurate.It would be accurate if we used a lower priced frozen fish. I guarantee our food quality, our service each and every time. We will always make something right. Clayton

“The best pizza on Siesta Key? Clayton's Siesta grill. Yes.”
Reviewed August 8, 2014

Clayton's Siesta key grill is not a pizza restaurant. Or is it? You would never know it by the great crust, super toppings and flavors on Clayton.s pizza pie. I just had one tonight. Try it, you will like it. Clayton's Siesta grill has a great menu of wonderful American style favorites and a full friendly bar offering.Steaks, seafood, and exceptional salads are also on the large menu ( the crispy duck and baked Trout are outstanding). Plan a sunset trip just across the street to point of rocks beach and a then back two blocks to have a wonderful dinner at Clayton's. Try this super relaxed spot when you vacation on Siesta key. You will not be disappointed! They have a full offering of outstanding food ,great drinks and friendly staff. Do yourself and the family a big favor, go to this warm friendly spot on the south quite end of Siesta key Sarasota Florida.
