“Just discovered this gem”
Reviewed August 27, 2014

We gave this established restaurant in New Orleans a try for lunch and were quite surprised at our find. It appeared that the patrons were mostly locals as this place is located in a neighborhood. We had wonderful traditional turtle soup and gumbo for starters ($7.50 each) and the salad special ($16.95) and crab salad ($18.75) I thought the prices were a bit high for lunch but when on vacation you splurge a bit. The service is classic New Orleans so you are paying for that atmosphere too! Will try to return for dinner next visit.

“Okay place nothing amazing ”
Reviewed August 24, 2014 via mobile

This place was okay not really that amazing. They have packed this place with too many tables inside and feels like you are on top of each other. The quality of the good was good, but nothing really amazing that you would rave about.

Also the parking is horrible in his area. I would suggest taking a cab.

“Fantastic local restaurant”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

Clancy's is a local gem. We had a fantastic night and the food was delicious. We were with a regular customer and it is easy to see why locals love it so. The crab with fired green tomatoes are super yummy and. I loved the smokec pork. The food was much lighter than other "traditional New Orleans" restaurants and I'd be happy to go back. The prices were also not outrageous. This restaurant taught mr to really enjoy a night out in NOLA!

“Great uptown neighborhood restaurant”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

Execellent neighborhood fine dining in the Uptown area of New Orleans. Nice unique takes on many traditional dishes. Great food. Only drawback is that it can be noisy. Well worth the visit.

“Best Restaurant by far in New Orleans!”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Uptown and a long cab ride, but well worth it beyond all imagination. The restaurant has an intimate feel - the waitstaff all in tux and bow ties. The Shrimp Remoulade appetizer was like a party in your mouth - so many tastes - it was amazing! Could have had that for dinner! Ordered the Veal with Crabmeat and bernaise and it too was delicious. Generous portions, all delicious! What a New Orleans secret! Can't wait to return!
