Last year was the first time we experienced Clayton 's with their new Chef and the food was Wonderful. And this year was just as good with a different Chef. Thanked owned and asked him to tell Chef that everything was great.

We were a little put off by the sports bar feel of the restaurant with TVs and it's a bit loud. But, totally charmed by what came out of the kitchen. Exquisite food... beautiful presentation. I had the cauliflower steak. I wasn't thrilled with ordering it because I'd had it at another restaurant in town and it was bland and... More

Good restaurant, takes reservations. One of the few restaurants on the key where you can plan ahead and get a reservation. Menu with good options for a group with varying tastes, not just seafood.

We have eaten at Clayton's numerous times, and always enjoy the staff as much as the food. Clayton has a great thing going here - you will love it!

Clayton's Siesta grill is one of those restaurants that you could pretty much go to every night and have a different and delicious meal. I've been going there for many years and it was my favorite restaurant in Siesta Key and one of my favorite restaurants anywhere . First of all, the staff is consistent and amazing. They've been there... More

We tried Clayton's Siesta Grille for the first time last night and we loved it. We started with a drink, seated at a table outside. It was one of those perfect nights - not too hot with a nice breeze. Plus, the outside tables were much quieter than all the activity inside. A great wait staff can make or break... More

Communication failure between the hostess and waitstaff resulted in 15 minutes without table service. Once worked out, food was ordered and served in timely manner. Make reservations! Lobster tacos were good, small portion and had to fork and knife it. Tough to eat like a taco. Caesar salad good as were calamari. Kids burger is huge. Wine pours generous.

Food was great. Fish was fresh and cooked wonderfully. Our waitress was on top of her game. Bread was brought out quickly.....she even refilled us on bread. Seafood was very good. Person in our party had the vegan cauliflower which was surprisingly very good. Don't sit inside during busy hours, it's very loud. But overall I would definitely recommend it.

Thank Chris O
