We've been going to Clancy's for the better part of a decade and I am saddened to admit it's just not as nice as it used to be. They still have the sawdust floors, amazing atmosphere and those awesome deep fried biscuits, but there seems to be an overall drop in quality that is a little disappointing. We had sides... More

Had crab legs a few years ago, and swore off them as they really weren't good - they were cheap and cold - these were really meaty, hot, and delicious - done to perfection - waiter told me to order them as it was my best choice, and they usually know - he was right on and I had great... More

I had not been to Clancy's since I was a kid. I was in town on business and told my associate about how good this place was. We had dinner there but I found the food to be blan and over priced for what you got. The plus side was the service, from the valet to the server it was... More

When my friends come to visit this is the place we go for great seafood dishes and excellent sevice. They have an early bird special Monday to Friday from 5-5;30 PM and is well worth it.

We visit Clancy's Crab Broiler when it's a birthday or anniversary, when we want to remember old times. Have been going since our kids were in elementary school and they are in their 40's and early 50's now. Everything is good and fresh. They still have that great sour dough bread but you have to ask for it. You can... More

I was on business in the area and this restaurant was within walking distance of the hotel. They have daily specials and on Wednesday it is a lobster dinner for $27.95. It included soup or salad, lobster tail, twice baked potatoes and asparagus. Also included is a dessert. I had chocolate mousse. The dinner was very good and the portions... More

It was a birthday visit that brought us here. My wife had the Alaskan King Crab, her birthday. I had fish and chips. The crab was plentiful and very tasty, the fish & chips was fresh and filling. Nice place for a good seafood meal without the extra expense of seaside restaurants. We will go back

Clancy’s is an interesting experience. First, the atmosphere and décor are casual – very casual. The floors are covered with something like sawdust. If you are wanting elegant surroundings – you really need to try somewhere else. But our group was not put off by this. The menu is very large, and most of it is seafood. However, they have... More

My husband and I dropped by for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. The place was pretty empty. It took the waiter quite awhile to stop by our table and get our drink order, even longer to deliver the drinks, even longer still to take our food order. We had eaten the entire plate of sourdough bread before he got around... More

Really excellent fish here - nightly specials include things like potato crusted Chilean seabass, soft shell crab crusted mahimahi - always excellent and mouth watering. Of course they have King Crab legs, and salmon on cedar plank, etc. They have steaks and burgers for those in your party who don't want fish. My husband and I have eaten here many... More
