We recently had dinner at this restaurant for the first time. The ambiance is beach joint, but the main menu items are fine dining quality and priced accordingly. There are some lower priced options on the dinner menu like pizza and a burger. The wine list was limited and the markup is quite high. No complaints about the food, but... More

On vacation we stopped by Clayton's for dinner. I had a dreamscicle drink and the grouper for my entree. Let me just say that the grouper is a pure explosion of delight in your mouth. I told the waiter that they should include a good hair pulling with this much joy. Want a great meal from drink to dessert, go... More

The seafood here is all excellent. The scallops are my favorite, and the grouper, salmon, and crab cakes are all excellent too. I tried the duck one night, and it was definitely not the best duck I have ever had. It was overcooked and a little tough. If you're coming to Clayton's, order seafood!

A great find the food was outstanding and the atmosphere friendly. The owner comes and asks each diner how they are. Only criticism our server wasn't that attentive slow to serve and seemed to busy doing other things waited nearly 10 minutes to get a refill of drink. This wouldn't stop us returning as all the other servers looked like... More

As usual, the food and service was excellent. Highly recommended! The nut crusted grouper is wonderful and the wine selection is good.

The duck was crispy and moist. Generous portion---2 thigh/leg pieces. However, the cherry sauce on top was way too sweet especially with the rice and snow peas. Masked the lemon grass flavor of the rice. There were only 4 scallops with a chard, corn medley with the other dinner. This was not an especially adequate dish compared to the duck... More

This cozy little place was hopping on Christmas eve! The jam jar appetizer was very good! I had crab cakes which were some of the better ones I've had down here, Crispy on the outside and tasty.
