I've been to Clancy's a number of times over the years and always found it adequate or better. The service was so bad on my last visit that I will not return. Clancy's is always crowded, but that is to be expected. It is a high volume restaurant, but clearly they cannot handle it. I must say the service was not great on visit before the management changed, but this visit was unbearable. I had to ask for silverware & condiments (I swiped my salt & pepper from another table) etc . . . They seated us outside with a lovely view of the river, but strangely the umbrella was down and blocking my view of my companion. I did the logical thing which was raise it. OK, that's when I realized that I had direct sunlight in my face for my entire meal. A professional operation would not seat someone there as the sun goes down. So there is the problem: they are packing in guests in every which way, while at the same time they cannot handle the pace of serving a large number of guests, The food was fine, but we were just annoyed as hell. The kicker about bad service in a restaurant is that you just want to get the hell out of there and, of course, you can;t find anyone to bring you your check.
