Clayton's is always busy and offers a great selection including many seafood items. In the past they have excellently prepared our local catch for us but this time we had a group of six for a sampling of various dishes. All were very good.

We didn't have reservations but was able to get a table, thankfully. It's a little off the main road on Siesta Key - but a great find with outstanding service. The food was well prepared with good sized portions. We definitely will return.
