This was our first dinner at Clancy's and my wife and I were not impressed. While our server was excellent, the food failed to hit the mark. Some of the dishes were huge, but for us it is about the quality, not the quantity. The first thing I tried was a dinner roll. It was not fresh. Next, however, was... More

Been to Clancy's many times for drinks and bar food . Always good. This time had dinner with friends, not so good. Service was excellent , but the food was poor. Huge chicken pot pie, only three pieces of chicken. Lobster crab cake, still searching for lobster. Honey garlic shrimp, a pound of green beens and a few very small... More

We dine in somers point often however we hadn't been here in a couple years. Now we know why. The restaurant itself is nice and clean, plenty of parking. The problem is the rude manager. This guy ( slender build, bald) was rude two years ago and when we received the same treatment last weekend, we realized why we hadn't... More

Just OK. Hot food hot, cold food cold. Server was efficient and went out of her way to check on ingredients for a 4 year old's food allergies.

We decided to change things up for this Mother's Day and decided to try Clancy's by the Bay and were we surprised! Our group was ten in size but our wait staff were on top of their game. The day's specials were offered up as well as recommendations. But the biggest surprise was the food itself. Everyone at our table... More

My husband and I were spending a beautiful Friday (March 11, 2016) down at the Shore and decided to try this restaurant for lunch. It was early, probably around 11:30 AM, but the door was propped open and so we knew it was open to the public. We walked in, an older gentleman, tall with gray hair was standing at... More

We have been to Clancy's the last few years for New Years Eve and didn't have problems getting a table for an early dinner. This year I decided to make reservations and could only get a 5 o'clock. Since we were doing First Night in Ocean City we figured that was fine. The food was good, the waiter new so... More

Ordered the prime rib for dinner. The better restaurants when serving prime rib give you a much larger portion. What we received were small thin portions in my opinion. We dine out in Somers Point weekly, nothing memorable enough for me to go back here rather than some of the other good places in town.
