An Irish Mexican restaurant

Didn't see any Irish on the menu but the Mexican food was very good. Two soups - tortilla and black bean, were very good. Enchiladas and chili relleno were also excellent. Marguerita was terrible. Where was the tequila in this less than passable mix?

Great location and the atmosphere and staff are wonderful but it is not my favorite. If you want authentic Mexican try Mia Mexico beachside

Although we did bot eat here, the food looked and smelled great. The bar is pretty solid and, as they should, they have a great tequila selection. The drinks were poured well and the service very friendly.

Margaritas, chips and salsa, and then a nice Mexican dinner. We had burritos and everything turned out excellent. We will certainly return

My boyfriend and I went Clancys last night for dinner and I was so disappointed. I ordered something I have eaten there many times a chimichanga. Well trying to find any shredded pork in it was challenging. My side order of plantains were wonderful and even though the flavor of my flan was good it was overcooked. My boyfriends food... More

We didn't want to wait an hour (on a weekday!) at any of the more popular lunch places so we kept walking west and came upon Clancy's. It wouldn't be my first choice-food is just average- but it has nice outdoor seating and friendly service. And just a 10-minute wait for a table.

Sadly our favorite Casa Verde next door is closed Mondays so we gave Clancy's a try. It is a roomy and bright looking restaurant. Our server was very pleasant but as the restaurant was understaffed, things moved a bit slowly. There is a very extensive menu including all the expected Mexican offerings. My husband, a vegetarian, did not have a... More

We sat down and we're greeted with salsa and chips. The service was prompt and friendly. I got the Especial Pork Enchiladas, my wife the blackened chicken Ceasar salad, and my daughter the taco salad. All were perfectly ok, but indistinguishable from a hundred other Mexican meals.

We'd like to thank you for taking the time to write about your experience at Clancy's Cantina. Hand washing at Clancy's is a high priority. We take this very seriously. There is a hand wash sink in the bathroom stall and it is our hope that this is where the employee washed their hands, unseen by you. We would appreciate... More
