Used to be so good

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... read more

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!

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

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
