Over multiple visits, Clancy's has been a bit of a disappointment. A pleasant (usually) atmosphere with quite ordinary food, is the best description of our experiences there. Clancy's must severely limit their chef's' access to the spice rack. If fresh but bland seafood is your thing, you will be quite happy here. Grilled catfish, grilled salmon and fried shrimp were...

MAYBE, MAYBE NOT. The food here is not consistant. I have had good meals, and at other times, not so good. It's also pricey for what you get. Sat at a booth across from the bar once, and the music was so loud, you couldn't hear yourself talk. Politely told the female bartender about it and she copped an attitude.... More

Clancys continues to serve great fare. The menu is spirited and offers a wide selection of sea food and landlovers choices. The fish is fresh and well prepared. Great wine list too.

Clancy's has always been our go- to place for fresh seafood at reasonable prices. The menu highlights "what's fresh" and offers it blackened or broiled with choices of sides. There are also salads and combo plates. My favorite is the filleted trout broiled with just lemon-butter. This restaurant is usually crowded, so we opt for early dining around 6pm. The... More

There aren't many choices in the Glendale-Burbank area when it comes to seafood. But, Clancy's has been a dependable destination since we started coming here a decade ago. First, their martinis...outstanding. They're served in a small stemmed glass, accompanied by a full cruet floating in ice water. Now that's chilled. Haven't tried the gumbo here, so I had a cup....

I had chowder and a white fish with saffron rice. The fish is always done well. I learned that I prefer my chowder less salty and I don't like saffron rice. I have been with a group for their evening special, which offers a discount. It looks like most seafood restaurants inside, our service was good, plenty of food. The... More

A small group were looking for a place for dinner on a Friday in Lent.... Clancy's came to mind. It's a large establishment but they seated us quickly. We never all got menus but we like to share anyways. The food came out in a timely manner and was hot and tasty. There was a wide selection taken at the... More

Want dinner without the din of dozens of other conversations and background noise? Want to be able to chat quietly with your dinner partner? Want excellent service? Want GREAT food? How about a bit of ambiance you can really enjoy? My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the Manila Steamed Clams appetizer and then the Thursday Special of Stuffed Sole. The... More
