About Clancy’s Tavern & Whiskey House

4.5 / 5

from reviews

    Clancy’s Tavern and Whiskey House is downtown Knoxville’s premier Irish Pub. We are located directly next door to the historic Tennessee Theatre, at the corner of Gay Street and Clinch Avenue. We serve good food and provide a relaxed atmosphere that offers a great place to meet after work for a drink or on weekends when shopping downtown.

    A classic Irish pub. The pub fare is very good. We enjoyed the fried cheese curds with marinara sauce. The hot wings were crispy and delicious. The Reuben paired well with a Guinness on tap. This is a good spot to share a pint with friends.

    The blue cheese potatoes chip app is stellar. Fish and chips were good and the tartar sauce has an interesting dill flavor. The French dip was also stellar. But ZOMG THE CHEESE CURDS.

    This is one of my favorite places to visit when in Knoxville. I finally brought a friend on a day trip, and, between a very patient staff and a wide selection of drinks and food items, this was a wonderful experience.

    Great place to enjoy great bar food before the game. Fried bologna was wonderful! Drinks were good and service was top notch.

    Kitchen closes at 10pm A new fact me and my mother learned AFTER checking basic business hours, walking in, and placing food orders fresh out of a late theater show at 9:57. An, albeit unintentional, a-hole move from us for sure. Despite that, the food came out warm and quick. It was delicious, and our waitress served us with a smile on her face. My only regret is she didn't bring us our check sooner after we were clearly done eating, but honestly prefer it that she wasn't chasing us out or pressuring us to give up our table- so I'll take it as a boost for the chill atmosphere this place provides. Absolutely will come here again, and all the super negative reviews seem like people with not enough to complain about in their lives based on my own experience.
