Great place to hangout and watch the wave action. Food good but most of it is fried if that's what you like. Sometimes they have live music during the afternoon.

Service is bad (you stand in line at the bar), "Signature Drinks" are terrible, fish tacos and shrimp tacos weren't good (go to Louie's for fish tacos). Burgers and $1 beer are good. Overall, the biggest beach bar in Texas is way over-rated.

I knew this was a beach/party bar... but the food service and quality was not so good. They lost our order so our total wait time for a couple of fish tacos was about 50 minutes. The "signature" drinks were way overpriced.... $10 for a pre-mixed, pre-blended margarita?

Spent last Sunday st Clayton's on the beach at SPI. The fried shrimp plate was excellent. The beer was cold and at $1.00 per Busch Lite, the price can't be beat

Great place to have$1.00 Busch light beer, kick back and listen to music with a great ocean view! Mixed drinks and their specialty drinks are too high priced $11.00-$13.00. Have not tried food yet just been there chilling :) great service too!

But the food was average at best and the beers, while cold, were a bit pricey. We enjoyed watching the beach, but there's so much good food in this town we probably won't be back
