Buddy and Bruce

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!

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.

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.
