A little pricey, but the food was delicious. Very friendly staff. We enjoyed lunch outside with a lovely view of the river. We would eat here again.

Went here our last night on the Cape, and it was the best diner we had. The clam chowder was excellent, the broiled scallops were amazing as was the broiled seafood sampler. I fell in love with their rolls. Our waiter was charming and efficient. The key is to get there early. We arrived between 5:30/5:45 and were seated immediately at a table with a view. The bathroom, which is often a sign of a quality restaurant was immaculate.

This was an enjoyable family type restaurant on the south side of Cape Cod in Dennis Port. The restaurant is large and can accommodate a lot of people. The restaurant was clean and the wait staff very friendly and helpful. The menu is large with a variety of seafood, but their specialty is fried food fare. So if you are in the mood for fish and chips, fried clams, or other fried items from the ocean this is the place for you. Their broiled platters are also very good, prices or reasonable for Cape Cod. My family and I enjoyed a great meal in an enjoyable atmosphere and would go back again.

My wife and children have been going there for years. This year may very well be the last. The hostess at the front door didn't even say hello even after I initiated conversation, the wait staff (looked like a group of teens hanging out on a corner) and as my family and I walked passed one of them said, "what's the dilly sir"? Our waitress rolled her eyes at my children at least 4 times and the chicken parmesan was luke warm at best. Most likely will never visit again. It was bad!

We have been going to Clancy's for 20+ years. During our most recent visit to the Cape we called to get an idea of a wait time as per the person we spoke with they do not take reservations or do call ahead seating to get on the list. After we were told the wait was an hour plus we decided to wait and go another night at an early time. We did just that and showed up at 6PM to basically an empty parking lot. We thought we were good especially when we went inside and saw most of the place was empty. To our surprise the wait was 1 1/2 hrs as the tables were reserved. We asked how can they be reserved when no reservations are taken and we were told they take reservations but not on the day off. Nice information but why we were not told that days prior when we called. Again the place was almost empty at 6PM during the middle of the summer. Given this experience Clancy's is off our list for dining spots.

Clancy's does take reservations for large parties. We only reserve a few tables per day, so as you can imagine, they fill up quickly. Usually we are done taking reservations by 4 PM of each day. Because of this, we can quickly go on an hour plus wait for large tables (especially when the party will not take a first available table).

We do not allow call aheads for any size party. We are sorry that this was not explained to you.
