“MUSIC, FOOD, AND FUN”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

Great entertainment, large seating area with chairs, booze a bit pricey ( $5 for a can of beer) but friendly folks, lots of fun. The bands are excellent and play all sorts of music from 50s on to current stuff. Room for dancing on open deck-- had covered areas too. Lots of clean restrooms. They also serve food, but I did not order any but it did look good.

“What a fun place!”
Reviewed 24 January 2014

What a fun outdoor restaurant right on the beach. We walk up the beautiful beach at S Padre Island and sit there in the sun! What's not to love!

“Big player in town”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

There is not a lot of options or competition along the beach, but Clayton's doesn't take advantage of the situation. The staff was very friendly, drinks are decent, food was good. Their huuuuge patio is open to anyone purchasing at least a drink.

“Enjoyed it more than I thought that I would”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

We enjoyed Clayton’s and I was surprised that I enjoyed it as much as I did. It’s a cut above the average bar and grill atmosphere. Seating is all open air but they have a large covered area and a large open section. We found our food to be good and the mixed drinks have plenty of alcohol. It’s a little pricey but the drinks are not watered down and the food portions were generous.

“Good outdoor bar for off season.”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

Went when nothing special was happening on a Tuesday and probably got a better experience because of it. This is a bar, so stick with bar food. Nachos are good enough and the burgers are better than average. If you want seafood, go to Dirty Als. Bartender wasn't hurried so the drinks were good. No service though, order at the bar and then pick up at the window when your buzzer goes off. Even went back on Thursday when they were ramping up for sandcastle days and the additional croud made it a little less pleasant but still good for an outdoor lunch.
