This was a fun place for dinner with a great variety of meals. The bread and butter before the meal had an interesting twist and was very good. We tried the pizza and it was incredible. Good service, outdoor seating, and good food!

We never seem to get around to coming here after all the times we've visited Siesta Key on vacation, finally did so and wish I had years ago.

Nice little place a block or two off of Midnight Pass Rd behind Captain Curt's. Parking around the building. The interior is a neat mix of bar/restaurant with some long high tables with a bar feel, and booths around the room giving more of a restaurant feel. A large bar dominates one end of the room and small dining rooms the other, with the long high bar stool type tables in the middle of the floor.

Nice varied menu. I had the daily seafood/pasta special (a spicy seafood spaghetti dish) and I cannot remember what my wife had, but we both enjoyed the meal. Started with a calamari appetizer and it was well cooked and tasty. Nice beers on tap. WIll return

Somewhat limited menu so I had a ham & cheddar omelette which was huge, fluffy & loaded with ham and with cheddar inside and out!

A but pricey.

Clayton's Siesta Grille is a short hike from the island's Crescent Beach (and a short walk from another Siesta landmark, the Crescent Club -- a dive bar with history), and you can wear your sandals. But the food is a strong cut above any nearby restaurant, with a wide-ranging menu, with an impressive selection of fresh fish and shellfish. They make their fish tacos with mahi-mahi, and the seafood salad is hearty, fresh and delicious. It's a fine place for breakfast, lunch and dinner, though it's only open for dinner on Mondays and Tuesdays. We keep getting those yummy tacos with two sauces, but the whole menu is impressive.

Had a great breakfast during our escape from Hurricane Matthew which pounded Jacksonville. Later returned for take-out pizza as we hunkered down with family on Siesta Key.
