Simply enjoyed having cocktails on the HUGE outdoor deck. Didn't have entertainment while I was there, but two large stages for live bands. Beach below the deck has sand volleyball net. Didn't eat, but heard others rave about the nachos.

We loved sitting at Clayton's, overlooking the Gulf of Mexico as we ate our dinner. The breeze and the music (both live and recorded) helped to give the place a laid-back atmosphere. We lingered longer, just because it was so peaceful and enjoyable there.
