Great sight seeing. Oh, the pretty girls and drinks if you need them. Remember to walk on the beach and enjoy the fresh air.

Used it several times while staying next door at the La Quinta. There was lots of bird poop all on the chairs/tables so it was dirty. Food ok quality and a little pricey for what you get. Drinks are good.

Have visited the Island several times and this is the place we always migrate to. There is lots of parking and they've recently added a boardwalk to the beach. No longer necessary to roll your cooler in the sand nor to carry your heavy cooler to the beach! That alone is the best reason to park yourself at this bar... More

Large outdoor area right on the beach. If you want a cold drink the beer is cheap and there are numerous chairs to sit and relax or people watch. Convenient to hotel requiring only a short walk.

Its a beach bar. The beach is beautiful, but Clayton's is open only for limited hours during the winter season. The food is pretty much what you would expect to find at a beach bar, the drinks are good, beer is cold.

Fun, upbeat beach bar with beautiful ocean front seating. The food is typical beach bar style food, not a big menu. We only ordered the ceviche and it was excellent. It had huge chunks of seafood and it was a large serving. They also have a band stand and live music. Nice large open outdoor area. We liked the laid-back... More

The place is huge but only open part of the time during winter season. The staff was great and service was fast. The food is bar food so if you are looking for a good burger I would eat elsewhere.

One of the best views on and of the Gulf side on SPI. Tons of outdoor seating. We ate lunch here. My husband had fried shrimp($14) and French fries and I had a grilled shrimp ($13) salad. You order food at the bar, they give you a beeper and when it buzzes, you pick up your food. The food was... More

We wanted to reveal the gender of our baby to the family at claytons and the guy who was there was so nice and so helpful and accommodating. We took an ice cream cake and he held it for us until we were done eating and let us borrow a knife to cut it. He was extremely helpful and friendly,... More
