Clancy’s Clubhouse – A Sports Bar Heading In The Right Direction

by Franklin on November 2, 2011

Hungry before going out to Disneyland, we needed a bite to eat. Knowing of course that Disneyland had not a single decent place to get a good meal, we decided to eat outside, but near by.  Clancy’c Clubhouse was just around the corner, and it was one of those places I always pass by, and say “I wonder if it’s good there.” This time, we finally tried it.

I was excited to see that it was a sports bar.  It was relaxed and inviting.  At first, I thought it was more like a steak house type restaurant, but was glad that it was casual. They had a bar area, TVs everywhere and tables games scattered everywhere.  The inside was fun, and this would be a perfect place to watch sports games or hold a nice event.

I ordered the Clubhouse burger.  It had applewood smoked bacon, bleu cheese, grilled onions and chipotle aioli.  This had so much flavor — almost too much flavor. The bleu cheese already was strong in taste and packs a lot of flavor.  The bacon was salty and the chipotle aioli was another flavor element that was strong.  Though it had a potent flavor profile, and a bit on the salty side, I liked it.  The flavor was intense and I am a sucker for bleu cheese.

My burger was especially good with the side of house made potato chips we ordered.  It came in a big deep bowl and it almost seemed endless.  The chips were especially good dipping it in their green onion dip. Some chips were kind of soggy, but the chips were light and crispy, not crunchy.

Their Grilled Cheese burger was more mild in flavor, but good as well.  It was basically a grileld cheese sandwich, with a beef patty.  The oven dried tomato aioli, american cheese, caramelized onions were a perfect mix in the sandwich burger.

All in all, I was impressed with this establishment.  The food was good and the atmosphere was fun. I might consider watching some sports games here.  Now we just have to hope that the NBA handles this lock out.  I need my basketball with my home made potato chips.
