Limited menu

I could not find an exciting meal on the menu. Settled for a crab imperial wrap and sweet potato fries. Friends got eggplant parm that was enough for 2 people! A couple drinks and it was a pleasant experience but nothing great. No wait, however at 6:15 on a Fri night in August.

We went for dinner, party of 3. We ordered an appetizer sampler. Everything tastes like frozen food. The nachos had a white plastic cheese sauce on them. No salsa or pico de gallo. My daughter had a burger that was supposed to have tater tots, sour cream and other toppings. The burger was dry and flavorless. I ordered a prime... More

Clancy's by the Bay is a nice place for a meal - the bar area and the restaurant are pleasant and the restaurant not crowded with tables. Now it is time to focus on the rest - service is very sluggish and the meals are only okay. There was lots of food, but there were little touches missing, like choosing... More

Service was good considering a lunchtime visit. Friendly staff took care of our large party. The menu although not large offers something in every category including a child's section. The $10 burger was done just right and had all the trimmings. Being a local I can forsee a return trip in the future!

Buddy the Bartender is the man. Hey I would usually like to look at sexy women bartenders but Buddy is the old fashioned and old bartender along with Bruce that give Clancys the Irish feel. if only they wore ties.

Family dinner after the beach. No reservation, but seated right away. Not very busy, waiter spot on for drinks. Very cold beer and adequate wine list. Good specials and large menu. Seafood and meat. Good Caesar salad and good crab dip. Prime rib very good and steak large and cooked to order. Portions are large and service was good.

Great Happy Hour! My husband and I sat at the bar to get the Happy Hour special appetizers and low priced drinks. The martinis were delicious.

The drinks are good and dancing is fun, but Clancy's food is horrible. I wish they would improve the quality of food because it's a good atmosphere and the bartenders are great.

Great food, great staff, nice atmosphere We had a networking event there and the staff could not do enough to make sure everything was perfect. Prices are great even for the shore area, We will keep going back!
