On family vacation and stopped in for dinner based on a friend's recommendation. Dinner and service was so good we returned a couple of days later. Best restaurant we visited during our week in Siesta Key. I would highly recommend.

We love Claytons. Everything on the menu is great. Recommend a reservation and parking is tricky so get there a few minutes early. If the weather is nice, ask for an outside seat.
