    Delicious grouper with macadamia nut crust is always good. The trio of goat cheese flavors as an appetizer is a wonderful blend of flavors. Not the best mojito I’ve had, but they were happy to remake it. I prefer the booths rather than the high tops.

    My family went to dinner here at 9:30 while in vacation after a long day at the beach. We were staying about two minutes away so it was very convenient. I thought the food was excellent. We had the calamari (great) a marguerita pizza (awesome thin and crispy) a burger ( one of the best, this was my wife’s favorite) coconut shrimp (I didn’t try but heard they were great) and the fish tacos ( wife did not like, said they were fishy but I thought they were ok) and daughter had the salmon which I found to be delectable and I don’t use that word ever. It was lite with a creamy texture just cooked perfect. So it was just a bit noisy at 9:30 on a Sunday night only because there was a bachelor party there finishing dinner, drinks and shots before heading out which some were loud enough that we could hear much if their plans for later. Otherwise a perfect place fir a family dinner.

    From the start it was all amazing! Kelly was our server who is fun and lively. She knows the menu like the back of her hand. The calamari was perfect but the goat cheese tomato jam was superb . The scallops was seared to perfection absolutely the best scallops I have had in a long time. The grouper was phenomenal. The blackened fish tacos were great! The macadamia brownie was decadent! Loved the environment. All of the employees were super nice and outgoing. I can not recommend this place enough.

    One of our Siesta Key favorites. Good, consistent food, a wide variety on the menu. Had P.J. serve us again and he is really great. Been there a long as have we. The only problem, the hostess who is also the G.M. I think she's relatively new. She has absolutely no people skills at all and should not be their front line - she will run people off she is so rude. Also lies. We requested a booth in our reservation and he she took us to table 5 (fair) right by the door to the outside. We asked for Table 3 which was empty and all set. She said someone reserved it for a bridal party - NOT TRUE! It was just occupied as we were leaving after our dinner so we stopped to wish them the best of luck on their upcoming marriage - they were no bridal party but a family from Europe visiting Siesta Key. Rude is one thing but lying is something I just don't tolerate lying. We'll be back because one incident like this won't turn us off a good restaurant but Clayton, who was not there that night, needs to know he's got a hostess and G.M. who will be bad for his business unless it's loyal folks like us. If this was my first time at Claytons, I would never go back.

    The hostess was busy when we arrived dealing with a customer who was picking up a to go order and another gentleman came by and was in the process of seating us(trying to be helpful) she was extremely rude with him and grabbed the menus and dinnerware from him and wasn’t too much more polite with us. We should have left then. We definitely will not be returning. The restaurant was not crowded or busy at all and I suspect it’s because the locals and the regulars on the island already know better. Definitely not the service one expects at this price point I made this reservation on a busy holiday weekend while on vacation based on info provided on open table. Menu was much pricier than indicated. If you want to pay nearly 40.00 for 3 scallops in some garlic potato soup this is your place.

    We enjoyed our dinner and table. We brought a chipped cocktail glass to our waitresses attention and she came back with a new glass but only transferred the drink to it instead of replacing drink as well and seemed to have an attitude about our table the rest of night.

    Waiter was inattentive and when I asked for hot rice after waiting for him to come back, he asked me to push rice onto another plate so he could heat it. Just unacceptable! He should have just brought me some new hot rice to go with my dinner. Also wrong description on one of the desserts. Have enjoyed in the past but last night not so much.

    It has been a while since we dined at Clayton’s. We were very pleased with our dinner there. Our order from the bar was perfect (Pomegranate martinis) and the appetizers and entrees arrived at the table hot. The grouper was one of the best we’ve had in a long while.
