- Ocean nj Hub and wifeOceanDad51Dined on 9/5/2014Nice and new. Bar is energetic. Food is good. Service was bad. The particular server had forgotten our shrimp cocktail, Gave me a mamosa instead of champagne, and forgot my wife's beer. It has potential since it is a Mcccloones place. Needs improvement but i am confident that it will. The chicken pot pie was great, the prime rib was excellent - great aus juis!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great placeGraceDined on 9/2/2014This is a really great place to enjoy lunch or dinner with friends. Service is great no matter how many people in your group and the food is wonderful. I have never had a bad experience here. Would recommend it highly .Special Features:
- Food better than expectedSunlovernjDined on 8/29/2014The decor of the restaurant itself is ok. Not very romantic, however the food was exceptional. I had the crab cakes and my husband had the prime rib. Both were delicious as well as the smashed red potatoes and green beans that came along with them. We shared the warm apple crisp with ice cream for desert and that too was outstanding. We were there on a Friday night and the dining room filled up by around 7 pm at which time service became a little slow. It was also very noisy, hence the not very romantic comment above. All in all, I would recommend it based on the quality and taste of the food.Special Features:
- Always a good experienceNickDDined on 8/23/2014I have been to this place several times and it has something on the menu for everyone. Food is consistent and very good. Service is excellent and pleasant. A great place to go in a pinch when you just aren't sure where to go or if your other restaurant is booked. It gets crowded like any other good restaurant but you might still be able to get a fairly last minute reservation for a small party.Special Features:
- was a great dinnerVinceTinNJVIPDined on 8/2/2014I 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent nightnittanyzekeDined on 7/31/2014It 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 !Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great Sweet Potato FriesOpenTableDiner2013VIPDined on 7/22/2014I 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.Special Features:
- What a treat!msfrog2VIPDined on 7/18/2014The Baked Macaroni and cheese with shrimp was outstanding.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Average food, poor serviceJerseyshorefoidieVIPDined on 7/7/2014We 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.
- Business LunchOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 7/7/2014Good food, we were not rushed but the server was attentive. I look forward to having another business lunch here.Special Features:
- Great Local PubSLO8470Dined on 6/27/2014We've been longing for a good local and modern pub. The atmosphere, food, and service were just what we have been looking for. We'll definitely be adding this to our list of regular restaurants.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Quick DinnerfoodnwineDined on 6/19/2014Needed to eat before a 6:00 pm appointment. In by 4:40, out by 5:55. Good food, attentive service; just what we needed.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Family DinedSecTimeDined on 5/17/2014My second time eating there. Food reasonable priced for the quality. Wished the tables were larger. Would eat there again.Special Features:
- Not exactly what I ExpectedSpecs11Dined on 5/17/2014I 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.Special Features:
- Good local spotJRZGLDined on 5/16/2014It'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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Average restaurant experiencejennyjenjenVIPDined on 5/10/2014This 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.Special Features:
- consistently awesom & great valueOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 4/26/2014This 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Very Good but too noisy!!!slj13Dined on 4/5/2014The 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.Special Features:
- Good food close to homeSimoneTDined on 3/29/2014The food was good. I love their crab cakes and the bread with sun dried tomato and olive oil dip is to die for!Special Features:
- Slow start but .... Worth a wait.Foodie1Dined on 3/29/2014Even 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- McLoone does it againDougDined on 3/28/2014This 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Wow - Completely RenovatedTmcm323774Dined on 3/25/2014I've been to CJ's many times but apparently they just remodeled it and the place looks beautiful. The menu is still great and has some notable, new items. Food and service could not have been better.Special Features:
- Excellent food and servicePaulDined on 2/20/2014Highly recommend. We had the Talapia and Salmon. Very good and flavorful.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Valentine's DinnerSirEatsoutalotDined on 2/14/2014We made reservations for a Valentine's Day dinner at the restaurant. The food was good and the service was excellent. A rose was offered to each female, a nice touch.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice and PlentyJUCALODined on 2/14/2014We 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Amazing Valentines Day!meplusyouDined on 2/14/2014they provided the best experience possible for my valentines day. A++++++Special Features:
- A Great Pre-Theatre Lunch4happygalsDined on 2/1/2014The menu is varied and tempting. All lunch items in our group were enjoyed; well served, plentiful, and tasty. The waiter responded to our special requests with kindness. The soups were especially luscious and satisfying. We'll definitely return.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- New Year's EveProseDined on 12/31/2013Excellent food and service - the idea of the free champagne with the pre fixe dinner was great although I would have preferred auvh dryer champagne.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- New Year's EveMarshallDined on 12/31/2013My 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Neigborhood Feel, Great FoodNickDDined on 12/31/2013This 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- very nicesheilaDined on 12/31/2013We had a very nice meal on a very busy day: New Years Eve. The lobster tails were delicious; the service was great.Special Features:
- It was New Years Eve but wefridaydatenightDined on 12/31/2013It 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
