Has pool table, and games. Drink pricing is competitive. Happy hour deals are good. Crowd can get rowdy, especially when a ship is in town.

With four friends we rode bikes from Huntington Beach along the boardwalk to Seal Beach on a sunny Sunday afternoon and began our annual bar crawl. Clancys was one of the hot spots as it was around Halloween and customers and staff alike were dressed in costumes give it a festive air. The drinks were reasonably priced (as were the... More
