I live in the area and have been to Clancy's quite a few times. It has good (but too loud) music and is an "OK" place to dance or meet up with friends. But the service.........You will get drinks eventually but trying to get served food here is an exercise in extreme patience. While nice enough, the waitresses are VERY busy with 2 waitresses covering the whole outside. It will take at least 15 minutes before anyone approach's you for a drink order. Then another 15 for them to bring the drinks and menus. So, you are half an hour (minimum) into it before you can order.
Warning about ordering the Stromboli or Calzon-they take 45 minutes to make and the servers get confused as to which is which and often forget what you asked to have put in it (no pen and paper used here!) Regular bar fare is a better bet though still a very long wait......just make sure to order your next drink when they bring the food.
This place gets extremely crowded when there is a band so come early-and order early......

I have been here a few times and while ok for drinks on a Saturday night, i would not buy the bar food. It was mediocre at best every time i have been there. Also the music is good to listen to but can be rather loud. The inside bar is always smokey on weekends. Also parking can be a problem on weekends as well.

A friend and I have been hitting alot of the local "dives" the past few months and this is one of the better ones. I have only been here in the late evenings on weekends but the crowd is fun, they have excellent servers and bartenders and the prices for beer by the pitcher is very well priced at $7.50 per pitcher. Atmosphere is fun and exciting and the outside back seating is a nice change if you want to get out of the smokey front section of the bar. They do have live music on some weekends and Karaoke on the other weekends.
Fun place to go and hang out with friends and very good atmosphere and great prices.
Definitly give it a try and see what Clancy's can provide for you!

We were there for a fund raiser for children and food was great band was tops and service perfect. A lot of smoking though so if you have a problem not a place to go. Also no kids should go there either. Perfect neighbor bar where you meet great people

Loud local hangout as well as a great place for cheap sandwiches and baskets.
Both a great place for a couple of beers or drinks and great sandwiches and baskets!

Early with the kids or Grandparents is fine any day of the week but leave em home on a Friday or Saturday night after 8pm.
