Clancy's by the Bay in Somers Point has confirmed they have sold the business and are closing permanently this Sunday, May 29. The business has been sold to an undisclosed buyer according to a message on the Clancy's by the Bay website.

Clancy's by the Bay opened on East Maryland Avenue in February 2012, billing itself as the largest sports bar in Somers Point. The restaurant took over in the place of the former Harry's Inn and Stumpo's Italian Grill and Bar.

At the time, the Somers Point Clancy's made a total of four Clancy's owned by restauranteur Joe Villari, but now his Clancy's Pub in Sewell, Gloucester County has closed permanently and the Clancy's Pub in Brooklawn, Camden County closed for good in fall 2021.

The seasonal Clancy's by the Sea on the Ocean City Boardwalk is remaining open seasonally according to the owner.
