“Great Tex Mex Cantina”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2015 NEW

Clancy's is beach side on Flager Ave. The food is very good, the service could be better with some training The specials change constantly but the staff seems to be somewhat confused. However, it is the best Mexican food in New Smyrna.

“"A Pleasant Surprise"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2015

We sat outside on their pet-friendly patio since we had our puppy with us! Great service, quick and efficient! The margaritas were only $4 and really tasty! Great chips and salsa - as much as we wanted! The food was fresh, hot and delicious! We usually go for relaxed waterfront eateries when in NSB, but we're really glad we tried something different! We will definitely go back!!

“disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2015

We go to Clancys everytime we are in NSB. This time the food was blah tasting and warm not hot. My margarita had a fly in it, right on top where the server should have seen it before he gave it to me. The Guacamole was the only saving grace.

“Sadly disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2015

Although we have eaten at Clancy's many, many times throughout the years, our meals were not good and certainly not up to the standards we had come to expect. Both meals were cold and my cheese enchiladas had sat so long before being served that they had caved in and shriveled. Our waiter was working inside and outside and when he finally came back, he wanted to know why I hadn't complained sooner. If he had come back sooner, I would have. He said the food must not have been prepared at the same time, but would bring me fresh enchiladas pointing out that the rest of my food would be even colder. Yes, it was a busy Saturday night, but we went later in the evening to avoid some of the crowd and the restaurant was not overly busy. I would hate to think they are so busy with one time only diners that they don't care about quality. There is a lot more restaurant competition in NSB now so they need to remember that the locals can have influence on visitors. Hopefully eating there on a week night would be a better experience.

“TexMex? Not so sure”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2015

They have a big menu but I had a chicken burrito with rice and beans. Nothing had much flavor. Not spicy, pretty tasteless. I don't think we'll be going there again any time soon. The restaurant was nice however and even though they were busy we were waited on pretty quickly.
