Although this restaurant is very loud, even late, is has a fun beachy vibe and wonderful food. We enjoyed everything we tried. Made for a great first night dinner.

Our waiter made the evening, what a great guy. Knowledgable and the perfect host. My martini was awesome however the fudge coating to the rim of my glass was a bit OTT, it was about an inch thick - tasty though! I had the fried calamari to start and it was the size of a decent main, salty, crunchy and... More

nice place, a bit of a wait but worth it. I had the macadamia nut crusted grouper and it was very very good. wasn't cheap for a family of 5, but since my father in law picked up the tab it didn't bother me. It is worth a visit if you are looking for a nice evening out. very good... More

Honestly my favorite thing about this place was the atmosphere of loyal regulars congregated around the bar socializing, eating, and drinking. We spoke with one of them who lived in the area and gave us some recommendations for dinner. They had a few local beers on tap, which I always appreciate. For dinner we decided on splitting several appetizers -... More

The food here is excellent. Staff is mostly attentive if not real crowded. Seafood is fresh and the type of fish seems to be truly what you get. The Grouper is Grouper etc.. Eat here twice as everyone wanted to try other offerings from the menu.

After doing a search for Siesta Key restaurants, I found Clayton's. It is very close to our "go to" Captain Curt's. When we drove by a day earlier, it didn't look busy at all. That, plus the fact they serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner didn't seem to be too promising. I called and made reservations. If it didn't turn out... More

Thanks for the kind words about Clayton's. We have options for quiet dining! The large sliding doors were closed but normally open which probably added to a more robust dining room. We have several booths and or patio dining that are more exclusive for quiet dining. Our scratch kitchen is the reason for a full house and more excitement. Clayton More

Claytons We visited Claytons four times during our two week vacation on Siesta Key. The crowd at this restaurant are the type of people that I enjoy meeting. They are friendly and usually talkative especially when you sit at the long high top table. Happy hour is from 3pm until 6pm. There are great appetizers that can make a meal... More

We stumbled on Clayton's for lunch for a large party when the main drag was so crowded. Service is attentive and the food was great. We went back for breakfast on our last day there and again we were glad we did. They have varied hour when they are open, so check before you go.
