Bring your own seat covers! – I would imagine that this place was once a really nice restaurant. The food was just okay and nothing to write home about and the wine selection left a lot to be desired. The biggest turn-off about this place was the restrooms. I don't think I have ever been in a more disgusting bathroom (other than a gas station) in my life. I wanted to take a shower when I got home. There are too many good seafood places available to waste your time on this place.
Great Crab but only somewhat slow so it is great for dinner – I really liked the place over all. Just a bit on the slow side for service. Food took about twenty minutes but definately worth the wait.
To be fair we came in at 2 pm so it may have just been the fact that they were ready to close down by 3 or something. But man it was fresh crab and the callamari was excellent!!!!
Try the 1 and 1/2 pound of snow crab legs. Pretty good deal and very tasty.
Delicious Bucket of Crab Legs – This is the kind of joint with plastic bibs and sawdust on the floor -- which is exactly what we were looking for. The sweet rolls they gave us and the crab stuffed mushrooms we ordered were the perfect way to start a meal.
The mushrooms were juicy and served in a deliciously creamy gravy. My dining companion and I shared the 2 1/2 pound bucket of crab legs, which were nicely sized, and it was the perfect amount. They were very fresh and came with two sides. We opted for broccoli, which was steamed to perfection, as well as mashed potatoes which were made from scratch and seasoned lightly with garlic and butter.
Clancy's also has a great dessert selection. We chose the creme brulee, which was characteristically light and creamy and was topped with mandarin orange slices.
In the end, the price wasn't bad and we'll definitely be going back.
Great seafood standby – When I want a great seafood dinner, I will normally force my husband to drive to Redondo Beach. But, if I'm looking for good and consistent seafood, we'll head to Clancy's every time. I'm not the biggest fan of their New England Clam Chowder...but I'm always up for freshly shucked oysters on the 1/2 shell and steamed king crab legs with clarified butter for dipping. This restaurant (and especially the bar) is always crowded. If you can get there for an early evening they have early dining discounts. Also, earlier this year they started recurring weekly specials for dinner. My husband enjoys Fried Shrimp Night...Tuesdays, I believe. The waitstaff here is usually friendly, accommodating and courteous. On a busy night, parking is scarce, even when using the public lot across the street.
Editorial Review – Since 1975, family-friendly seafood eatery and adjacent Blue Whale Bar attract loyal following with traditional American menu, theme nights, more.
good fresh fish – good place to eat. food was good fresh fresh. price is good not overly pricey but not cheap either. i think that you pay a little more than what you get but not by much.
the service was good, our waiter was a bit blunt and boarder line rude but he was being real. atmosphere is very casual. they have a lobster tank and sawdust on the floor. we went on a friday at 7:30pm and they were very very busy. so make reservations
Fresh seafood, great value – Clancy's is a great restaurant for lunch and dinner. They have really yummy clam chowder (New England style) and lobster bisque. At dinner, they serve these fried bread rolls that are highly addicting. Make sure you save room for your entree though. I would recommend the salmon, fried shrimp or fish and chips, and their pasta specials. They also have daily specials for a discounted price. Be sure to check out their website before going. They have early bird prices, but you have to be seated between 5:00 and 5:15 pm on weekdays.
our neighborhood restaurant – Clancy's is great! Ever since we moved to Glendale this has become our weekly spot! Good beer list and they make a perfect dirty martini!!! The oyster selection is VERY limited but always fresh!
Great deals thoughout the week and who can pass up a pound of snow crab $20 !!!!!! on Sundays and its fresh!!!!! Surprisingly good desserts as well. The service is 90% of the time awesome!!!!
We even love the sports bar . We always dine there, never had dinner in the main room, and we don't watch sports! Its just comfortable, very east coast!
Gladstones atmosphere...better food...better value – Here is another restaurant i've been going to since I was a kid. I love just picking something from their specials...i've never been disappointed. Also, it's just great to have oysters and a beer here. The fish and chips are really good too!
Great place for Fresh Seafood and Drinks – The sports bar at Clancy's is the highlight here. Ten plus TVs showing all of the big games. A huge beautiful bar with giant whale bones as a centerpiece.
Clacny's serves some tremendous dishes, Chilean Seabass with potato crusting is to die for. The make good strong drinks and have a great staff.
If you are a seafood and a sports fan this the place to be. Try to grab a spot at the bar, as the bartenders are down to earth true sports fans. It gets full quickly so show up early.
The servers there get spread a little thin with the ibg crowds, but the food is always top notch.
