    All food and drinks were delicious. Our server was delightful and attentive but because if was a little loud he did get some items incorrect but it was not a problem at all for him. When I made a mistake when ordering my cocktail and then realized it he brought me a new one. This place is a very good value and good for all ages.

    Absolutely delicious! We had the house salad, wedge, gnocchi & scallops and the macadamia nut grouper. Very nice size portions, enough to take home. Fun, casual $ lively atmosphere. Sam was an excellent waitress, she was very helpful in recommending dishes. The wedge is enough for 2 people to split. We will definitely go back & highly recommend making reservations!

    The service and the food were fantastic. We had old friends visiting from CT and wanted a casual place we could spend time getting caught up. Our waiter never rushed us and was very friendly and personable. The food was delicious and was brought to the table in a timely manner. Drinks were served just the way we like them. I’m recommending Clayton’s to all my friends.

    Wow! Outstanding service and food. The BEST seafood chowder I've ever had in my life. The crab cakes, wedge salad, salmon were all fantastic. Delicious homemade bread and butter, and the key lime was delish! Highly recommend.

    Clayton’s is still an excellent restaurant but we’re disappointed that they no longer have trout almandine nor coconut shrimp on their menu. Also, I’m sure it’s the inflation thing but their prices are very high now.

    We go to Clayton’s a lot and it’s always good. The food is good, the service is good. It’s a fun place to go right on siesta key and have a nice meal, good drinks, and a generally good time. The only thing that I don’t understand is they re-did their menu a few months ago and took off several items that I know were very popular, including the roast duck, their appetizer of coconut shrimp, and a wonderful mushroom pizza. The strange thing about removing the duck is they run ads and local newspapers around siesta key and in fact there was one in yesterday‘s paper, and the ad clearly advertises their duck which they don’t have anymore. What a shame it was one of the best dishes on the menu along with the other two they removed.

    This was a birthday dinner which we mentioned when we made the res. The server never acknowledged that. The food was excellent. We were disappointed (and honestly thought it was incredibly tacky) when the server presented the check and told us that they considered our party of 6 a “large group” and therefore had automatically added a 20% gratuity. 6? Really?

    The macadamia encrusted grouper and sea bass were both excellent. Service was a bit slow, but our waiter was working hard as the place was packed and he was covering several tables. It was quite loud... almost a party atmosphere. I would definitely recommend this restaurant but try to dine early or late to avoid the busiest times.

Very busy but service was excellent and food was fresh and delivered to our table steaming hot. Definitely would visit again.

    Their Fresh Catch was Salmon and they prepared it with such a creamy sauce with all the vegetables in it. It was one of the best Salmon dishes I've ever had. The Macadamia Nut grouper was equally amazing and the mashed potatoes were bomb!

    Part of our problem was our expectations. If you go know this place is a casual joint. Loud, noisy, crowded lots of 20 something’s and we went during the week non school vacation middle of January. We waited an hour for food to come. Had to ask manager to check. Food just ok. My salmon was the best dish although it was set in a creamy soup, which is not my fav even though I love mushrooms. My husband did not care for his Calimari too breaded like a KFC. I think it depends on what you order. But the ambience is not for us. Don’t understand the reviews on this one at all.

    Very enjoyable dinner at Clayton’s last evening. Wine selection good with reasonable prices and generous pour by the glass. My wife’s grouper was well prepared and tasty and my short ribs were excellent as usually. Key lime pie was a bit tart, but still enjoyable.Staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. Not too busy last night so got seated right away in our requested booth.
