Not good

My wife & I have eaten at Clancy's many times over the years. We look forward to dining here, the scenery on the river is relaxing and the food is usually very good. We came here Saturday night school vacation week in April there was a 30 minute wait for a table. The wait was ok we were lucky to... read more

Thank you for your review. We are glad to hear that the bartenders and drinks were good. In fact, it seems as though you enjoyed everything except the lobster salad. We are sorry for that. I do wish you had spoken to a manager. There were two of us on and we could have easily fixed the situation. It is... More

We have been going to Clancy's for over 25 years and have never had a bad meal and or experience. The food and spirits were always deliciously consistent up until the last year or so with the new ownership. It is a shame that the current owner and current management operates the restaurant in such a shameful manner. We had... More

Thank you for your review. The problem with these sites is people don't get the whole story. You hate the bartenders because they wouldn't honor your request for shots. We as a company don't do shots. It is company policy. It is not the bartenders policy, but company policy. They have been bartenders long enough to know that when shots... More

We visited Cape Cod this past weekend. We stopped at Clancy's for lunch. Great decision. Food was delicious and plentiful. Sweet potato fries were steak fries. Different from other places and very tasty. Service was good price was good. View was good. Great place to go any time of year!

This restaurant was near where we stayed so we decided to give it a try. The food was very good and the service was exceptional. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the restaurant was very nice. If we ever get back to the Cape we will return.

Clancy's is a local trademark. It has very good food and a nice view of Swan River. The food and the service is reliably very good. They serve local seafood, as well as poultry, veal, and steaks and chops. Their fish and chips plate is one of our favorites.

Ambiance is great. Food is great. Service is great. We realize that it is Winter, but felt rushed into leaving as they were closing very early. We got there at 6:30pm and they encouraged us to wrap it up around 8:00pm. We were six old friends out for an evening of caring and sharing.

They have a nice outdoor deck area overlooking the Swan Pond River—nice on a summer evening. We enjoyed our food-I got the fisherman's platter which was fresh-tasting and lightly fried. I would recommend this restaurant.

We had 3 families renting cottages and decided to all go out - we got a huge table at clancy's and excellent food. Just be careful - the hot wings are so hot you may need an emt! Even the desert was great and the waiter was easily able to handle our order

It being winter, we did not need to worry about traffic or crowds. Being from interior southern New England, wears craved fresh and well-prepared seafood. The fresh oysters were amazing, briny, full-flavored, ice-cold... perfect. The fried clams were slightly crunchy, lemony, and also full-flavored... perfect. The Bloody Mary was a solid accompaniment. Why do they spoil it all with frozen... More
