We enjoyed a great lunch at Clancy's, including outside seating overlooking the beautiful Swan River, excellent service from start to finish, we ordered two of their specials for the day: lobster and fried oysters...both excellent. We did feel the menu was a bit pricey for lunch when compared to other restaurants on the mid Cape, but overall, a great experience and we plan to return...

We have dined at Clancy's numerous times in the past 10 years and had a wonderful experience.This was not the case this past Friday afternoon as we were extremely dissappointed with not only the poor quality of the food, but the customer service as well.We were seated at the bar on a rainy, slow afternoon- 4 other people were also at the bar. I ordered the "whole belly clam dinner" for a mere $22! When it arrived, there were maybe 10 -12 miniscule clams - perhaps this was suppose to be clam strips, as the bellys were a bit smaller than a penny. I did have 5 of them and they were not tasty- more crunchy like strips. Not once did the bartender check to see if our food was satisfactory- he was too busy socializing . When he did come over he would inform the manager.The manager said that she would let the kitchen know, but offered no appologies and did not ask if I wanted something else. She left and when we received our check, the $22 was still there. I spoke to the manager again and she said"you ate most of them"! Try and make the customer happy- not the priority here.

Great outdoor dining experience. One of the best! Excellent food..best clams I have ever had. The Mahi Mahi was the best my companion has ever had. Very attentive service. Welcoming, friendly staff. And absolutely beautiful views of pond & marsh.Definitely recommend!

While visiting Sandwich Ma ,we took a drive to Dennis Port and Clancy's was open for lunch. My Husband had the best fried clam plate he has ever on Cape Cod. We also enjoyed very good pan seared fresh scrod plate. Beautiful river marsh surrounding the deck view from our table
Service was great and very attentive to food allergies. They are under new management and owners ,also own some of the best restaurants in Falmouth on cape cod. Their special occasions, family parties and great food service. A place to return to often this summer or year round. A rating experience.

Heard it was under new management again so gave it another try. Sat at the bar for drinks and apps with a friend who was a regular from the good old days. Had a friendly bar tender who was grossly inattentive to her customers and need to be flagged down for every little thing. The place was less than half full and so was the bar. it's just weird to have an empty drink for ten minutes and the person two feet in front of you never even glances over. The food was average, but my friend was disappointed that some of her old favorites were not as good as they once were. I'm not a snob or a demanding customer, but when service is less than adequate it puts a dent in the experience. Food: average. Service: inadequate. The view is still beautiful of course.
