  • "I had been to this spot before it was CJ McCloone's. The food is much better than the restaurant it replaced. Updated nicely. It was very loud in there so don't expect an intimate or romantic dinner. If your out with some friends you can't go wrong."

  • "It was a bustling weeknight at CJ McGloone's but we very much enjoyed our time. Solid beer and wine selection and had the crab cakes, they were outstanding. Our first time, we will be back. Great service !"

  • "I had lunch at Mcloones while on business in the area. I had the appetizer crabcake over arugula with roasted peppers and a side of sweet potato fries. I enjoyed it all and the sweet potato fries were just the right mix of crispy outside and tender inside. The service was as expected and everything was timed well. It's a good spot to have a sit down lunch."

  • "We visited this establishment for the first time on a Monday night. It was not crowded at all and we chose to sit on the patio. It took quite a bit of time to be addressed to get our drink order, and then even longer to take our food order. When it finally arrived, it was okay, nothing special. The waitress was essentially invisible, never coming back to check on us at all. We have dined been dining at Tim McLoon's establishments for years and have always enjoyed ourselves. However, we will not be returning to CJ McLoon's."

  • "My second time eating there. Food reasonable priced for the quality. Wished the tables were larger. Would eat there again."

  • "I personally thought the appetizers were better tasting than the entrees. Had the sampler appetizer which was great. The wings were perfect and had tender meat on them, not mostly fat. Calamari was fresh and mozzarella sticks were perfect. I got the Rib Eye and it was not seasoned with any salt, pepper or butter or anything at all. This was strange to me but it had no flavor and i added a bit of salt myself. Girlfriend had the Fajitas and they were good also but they too could have used a bit more seasoning. A southwest mix of seasonings or some kind of Mexican seasoning would have made them right. The peppers and onions were fresh, you could smell and taste it. Service was great but the entrees were lacking flavor. "

  • "It's refreshing to have non-chain options locally. McLoone's freshened up the decor and the menu. Drinks and food were on par. You don't feel rushed. Great place to catch up with friends and family."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "This was my second time dining at CJ McLoone's. Both times, I would say service was good and food was good, but that's pretty much where it ends. What made it a good choice was that they can easily accommodate large groups with kids, however, I was underwhelmed with the food on both visits. It was okay--nothing exciting, standard continental fare. I won't return as there are better options out there."

  • "This place has become a favorite go-to place for our family and friends. McLoones has never failed to please. Food is always some of the finest available whether you are looking for casual or upscale. Quick bite or leisurely pace this place is a perfect fit."

  • "The service was great, the food very good, but the restaurant is small, somewhat cramped and very noisy. Nicely decorated though - just too many hard surfaces and too many people in too small a space."

  • "The food was good. I love their crab cakes and the bread with sun dried tomato and olive oil dip is to die for!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Even with reservation, waited an hour for table. Hostesses need to estimate 1.5-2hr per table not the 1-1.5hr estimate they were working off - at least on a Saturday night. (People sit & chat so needs to be taken into account.) That said, manager did come by to apologize for wait with glasses of champagne to ease the time standing. Good call. The wait aside, once sat at table, the food was decent, selections interesting & service efficient & attentive. Would go back tho' not at peak hours."

  • "This is Tim McLoone's latest restaurant venture and he is doing it well. The place was packed, but even our showing up 40 minutes late for our reserveation, still got us immediate seating and good service. Prices are about right for our area and food was quite good with large portions. Wine list is moderate size with acceptable prices. Drink prices are a little high averaging $10 and specialtiies running up to $15. Try it. It's a big improvement from the last few lackluster owners."

    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We went for Valentine's day, the place was packed and they had a nice touch for the ladies which was a Red rose, we went with the prefix menu it had good variety. Had salad, then steak spring roll, twin lobster tails and dessert all for $50.00 not bad. My wife had Salad, Shrimp cocktail, Rack of lamb and coconut flan all very nice."

  • "My friend and I had New Year's Eve dinner at CJ McLoone's prior to attending a concert. We had reservations in advance and I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly we were seated. Obviously New Year's Eve is a very busy night for most restaurants and I could tell the place was totally sold out. We were seated immediately and had excellent service in spite of how packed the place was. Our food order was taken quickly by a server that was very attentive and friendly. Our meals were delicious and the server checked on us several times to make sure we were happy and not in need of anything. I have worked in the restaurant industry for years and CJ McLoone's hit it out of the park! We'll be back for sure."

  • "This place is small and built around an upscale tavern feel but this is not your typical tavern menu. CJ Mcloones sports many of the popular dishes from the other Mcloones restaurants in the area. We had the famous Mcloones crab cakes which were delicious and the prime rib was done perfectly. Great menu with something for everyone and also a great Kid's menu. Our son had the kids grilled steak which is perfect for a 12 year old steak lover! My teen daughter had penne vodka. Again not something you would normally expect much from at a tavern but this clearly was the Mcloones recipe and was delicious. Give it a try!"

  • "It was New Years Eve but we went just for an early dinner. We were seated right away thanks to the reservation. Food was good but a much smaller menu than usual. Server seemed preoccupied so service was fair . Crab-corn chowder was fantastic. Tuna bites awesome. We were happy overall and will be back."

  • "I've eaten here many times and the food is always good not great but for some reason I keep coming back. This time the food was still good (love the bread and tomato/oil they give you) but the service was so poor it made the whole dining experience disappointing. I'll think twice before returning."

  • "Casual, comfortable local restaurant. Been here a few times, bartenders aren't too friendly or welcoming which is a turnoff but most of the wait staff is nice. Food is good and it's nice to have another local option."

  • "We were seated right away thanks to our Open Table reservation even though there was a wait. I think the only problem we had was it seemed a bit cramped. My husband was bumped into several times by the wait staff. Food was great. Angry shrimp was certainly angry. Service, Paul, was very attentive but not intrusive. We will be back."
