We had reservations for 7:15 but were not seated until 7:45. A bit upsetting as on the website they say if you are 15 min late you forfeit your table.

Garbage smell outside was strong and repugnant. Bathrooms broken. Service was great. Food was great but limited menu selection ( no chicken entree really???) Been coming here for 8+ years. May not come back.

We felt rushed with the service a little as different servers kept coming to the table between appetizers and entrees, however the service was very good overall and generous at the end. It could have been more relaxed.

We have been to Clayton’s several times over the years but never for Thanksgiving. A few of us ordered off the menu and others ordered the traditional thanksgiving dinner. Everything was delicious and the staff was incredibly gracious and professional. Thanks for making our holiday vacation dinner a great one. We will be back next time we visit SK.

We’ve been a loyal customer for over 15 years and never disappointed. You can Have amazing fish dishes or default for pizza and tacos. What ever you order it will be great. Try it next visit to the Sarasota area.

Service was very good, professional.
Decor-simple, very Florida Oceanside. Casual dining.
Food was good (fish tacos were alright, neither good nor bad. Too much cabbage I think). SHORT RIBS were The Bomb though (with risotto and perfectly cooked crisp green beans and carrots sauté) !!! (Risotto was the best I’ve ever had in my life! And trust me I had plenty of it in my long life in New York, especially working hand in hand with Italians)- just for that risotto alone I’ll return again and again! Mussels appetizer- were cooked correctly and fresh, but I found lacking on flavor. Special of the day- sweet potato/ginger soup was tasty.
Overall I’d say.: Place is good. If you go there - definitely get the Short ribs with Risotto (main course).

Loved the variety that was available on the menu. The food was very good and the plating presentation was well done. The seating was comfortable and the ambiance was perfect for dining and conversation. Our waiter was attentive without being annoying. We will definitely dine there again on our next visit to Siesta Key.

Clayton’s never disappoints. The food was amazing (guests had filet, tofu stir fry, chowder, coconut shrimp, key lime pie)...the filet was perfect and so was everything else. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Owner helps staff which is so nice to see...great atmosphere and within walking distance to our place. We make Clayton’s a stop at least twice every year while visiting. See you next year!

We would definitely recommend Clayton's Siesta Grille! We are locals and have visited this restaurant with friends, but have never had dinner there until now. The atmosphere is casual, perfect for us, but the menu represented 4-star fine dining - nice variety of entrees, and they are plated with beautiful presentation! Kudos to the chef. Our food was excellent and the cocktails were mixed well, but more importantly, everyone we encountered there was very personable and helpful. Chase was our server and we will ask for him again next time. We were greeted warmly and visited at our table by the owner during our meal. It doesn't get any better than this! I would give my rating more stars if I could.

I ordered the trout and it was fabulous. Fish was crispy and the vegetables were cooked and seasoned nicely. Others at my table ordered the coconut shrimp with french fries. Their only complaint was that the fries could have been hotter. The noise level was loud but we eat late and after a few large parties left it was reasonably.

Always at the top of our list of our "must eat" when we visit Siesta Key. Awesome place that we enjoy taking our family and friends. They will prepare your "hook & cook" from your day of fishing for dinner and the preparation and presentation is awesome!

Clayton's is one of our favorites. We took new friends there and they enjoyed it as well. The wait staff was very attentive and the food was absolutely delicious the Macadamia grouper was one of the best I have ever had.

Excellent tomahawk pork special with tasty and fresh black eyed pea. Didn’t know I liked them until enjoying these. It was a quiet evening which is unusual. But, it is September!
