“Lots of better places in Padre”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

We got there on a Wednesday night at 9PM and were told the kitchen was already closed, so no food whatsoever. We decided to try a margarita which is their specialty, but had no idea they would be $10.50 a pop for a plastic cup of so so margaritas! I almost declined them and wish I had. We could see the place seats several hundred and had seen the crowds of cars and bodies around the place, but glad we found out we weren't missing anything, not at those prices...Wow..really? and the service was also terrible even on a slow night. Can only imagine how bad it must get when the place is packed.

“Don't Bother”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

Clayton's has some positive aspects- ample seating & parking, beach front location and a covered section. However the horrible food, drinks and poor service are not worth a trip. We ordered 4 meals and 3 were incorrect and two were burned. Staff shrugged their shoulders and turned away. There are many great places on the island to enjoy. Avoid Clayton's

“Relax and enjoy the view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

Eat overlooking the gulf - in the sun or shade. Wide variety of choices on menu. Had shrimp tacos and they had awesome flavor. Great place to relax - definitely not quiet, but the view is worth it!

“4th of July fireworks and live band & old friends”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

Met up with some of my favorite old highschool friends and had a blast watching the fireworks as well as drinking the awesome bomb chillers. Totally worth the upgrade for extra shots in the mango drink. The food was ok could have been cooked longer especially with the tortillas. I think the entrees are overrated but the appetizers were much better and fresher. Probably go for the music and atmoshpere but not the food.

“Beach Fun!”

Perfect environment to go relax and have fun while on the beach and at a bar all together. Also love the volleyball courts and tether ball stations. Wonderful!
