This restaurant has mediocre food, some nice staff and servers, however, the owner of the restaurant, Matt, was the biggest jerk and most terrible manager I have ever met. His employees had to apologize for his actions as I believe he had been drinking. He was rude and unprofessional and I believe that a business is only as good as... More

This Irish-family owned Mexican restaurant is an NSB tradition. It is nicely located on Flagler Avenue with tables near the windows giving you a view of the street. There is almost always something fun going on on Flagler. The service is good and the food is delicious. The CCQ (cheese dip) is super yummy with the complimentary chips and salsa.... More

Sub par Mexican food that tasted like it came straight from a box or can! Sloppy presentation on your plate so it's one big mess. Noseeums galore on the patio, got eaten alive. Usually crowded so I guess they don't care.

I've been a few times. Food is consistently good as is the service. Restaurant is a good size so its not crowded. Seems to have a great bar and live entertainment. I'm not a spicy food eater and have been able to enjoy their food. Large servings!

Clancys is a Mexican restaurant owned by a large Irish family! It's full of locals, the food is fresh, hot and pretty tasty...sit at the bar once and meet some locals. Well visited spot by the weekend condo crowd..great beers are served here with the chips and salsa.

There was a fun duo playing blues music, which was enjoyable. The outside seating area was also nice. This is why we initially decided to eat at Clancy's. I ordered blackened fish tacos which were pretty terrible. It was very, very bland and mostly tasted like flour tortilla. It was pretty pricey too for such mediocre food.

We went for Cinco de Mayo lunch to avoid the evening crowds. The service was excellent, the food well above average and the margaritas were great. We really recommend it for happy hour or lunch and if you likea more lively atmosphere on Flagler Ave, try it for dinner. We will definitely go back.
