Have been going to Claytons for many years. Their sandwiches are wonderful. There are times when it is quite busy, but they seem to handle it well. Worth the trip.

An old reliable. Wonderful salads and sandwiches. Pick up dinner and a side to enjoy that evening. Especially recommend the Clayton Grilled Chicken sandwich or the Clayton salad.

Family owned, always delicious. If you can get the Hungarian Mushroom soup you'll know what I mean. Large selection of vegetarian and non-vegetarian items so everyone is happy

Discovered Clayton's while in the area just driving by. The packed parking lot told me it was likely a good lunch spot and I was right. Extensive menu and sandwiches and salads. Was able to order quickly (despite it being very busy) and got my food rather quickly as well. Delicious and plenty of it. Great find.

Food, especially at lunch time, is plentiful and varied. Pretty hectic at lunch time. Good system in place for taking to go orders.

The curried chicken salad sandwich is to die for, seriously. For any foodie traveling through the area this is a "Must Stop" to get their menu and sample various sandwiches all freshly prepared while you watch it being made. Even the breads are over the top good and the old fashioned candy counter behind the sandwich counter is like a... More

I always stop by at Clayton's when I am near Portland, Maine. They are generous with their toppings. Everything is fresh. The food is so good that I usually get extra to take back home to NH. Staff is very friendly and amazingly fast. They also have a wonderful bakery and space to sit down and enjoy listening to the... More

I had eaten lunch here a number of times and have always been delighted with the sandwiches (the curry chicken salad being my favorite), soups, and delicious desserts. Last night my husband brought home dinner: pea soup, a portobello mushroom topped with stuffing, and chicken covered in blue cheese mashed potatoes. The entire meal was scrumptious. It will certainly not... More

We stumbled upon Clayton's through a friend that had recommended it for the Curry Chicken Salad sandwich and this one one recommendation that had to pass along. Not only was it the most delicious sandwich but the atmosphere was sooooooo Maine. Even if you have to go out of your way I would most highly recommend Clayton's and the entire... More

Great place to grab a healthy lunch! Soup, sandwiches, drinks and even an impressive selection of nice wines. Bakery is awesome and they even have my favorite European sweets: Dutch licorice. Must visit for a memorable lunch!
