Have to keep going Back!

Maryland Crab Dip! Don't miss it. It comes with bread slices and it is so good with a cold brew. Also had the House Chowder. A little sweet for a chowder but it is exciting.

The service was beyond atrocious!!! The food was fair, but I will never go back, for this last visit was a second-chance visit and Clancy's provided that horrible service is their specialty!

The food here used to be great. Over the past year is has become inconsistent at best. Since some new main manager (Doug?) took over the place has slipped. The only reason I did not give service a 1 was because of Bruce the bartender and Anthony the manager. They are both top notch and bend over backwards to give... More

We were really surprised how nice Clancy's By the Bay was in Somers Point, NJ. The interior is nicely decorated but still held onto that neighborhood bar motif. With the Christmas season coming to a close the decorations were plentiful. We've gone by so many times and they were always crowds. We knew someday we would have to stop. We... More

Had stopped going to Clancys since it seemed that the menu had become stale and lacked new additions. Was pleasantly surprised by specials menu which seemed to add a refreshing change to the standards of the past. Staff was great and good was above average. I am now excited to return.

We usually have our family party in my sisters home in Absecon but as the family grows- now four babies and toddlers with another baby on the way - we wanted to a restaurant venue and we picked Clancy's which turned out to be a great pick. Large enough to accommodate large parties but still small enough to retain a... More

Three of us went for lunch during the very popular Somers Point Restaurant Week. We arrived at 12:30 and didn't get finished until 3:15. WHY???? Management chose to have only one server for this busy lunch time. Not her fault, but there is NO WAY lunch should take all afternoon. Food was fine, colder than it should have been, but... More

We went to Clancy's by the Sea and were asked if we had been to Clancy's by the Bay. We had not. So...we made the trip for dinner that night! Very impressive! New Jersey with a touch of Pennsylvania and New York! Great egg plant parmagiana and wife had the chicken oscar. Very very good! Great service. Great food! And,... More

I was recently here on 8/16/14 with my husband and I really enjoyed the food. No wait at 8pm on a Saturday and great ambience . I had the best roasted chicken I've had in a long time and it was perfectly marinated and seasoned. Yummy! However , they knew it was my birthday and didn't offer any kind gesture.... More

Spur of the moment decision to try this place on a Sunday evening after having passed it numerous times since it's been opened for a few years. (We mainly avoided it since we were impolitely told to get off the parking lot one morning, shortly after the placed opened for business, while trying to find a parking spot for Bayfest.)... More
