    Combined with an off track betting place. Trashy clientele, BRIGHT, no ambiance, boring and the food isn't good, I can cook better. Don't waste your money.

    It was our first time dining at McLoone's. I had to send back my French onion soup twice and finally it was taken off the bill. It was not fresh. The food was not replenished at the brunch. We were forced to have breakfast. The waite staff was really nice. The hostess was sweet and professional. We spent $100.00 for a table of 5 and were quite disappointed.

    I have dined at several Mcloone restaurants but this location is completely different. The dress attire and atmosphere is more casual than other locations. It is located inside of a place where individuals bet on horses. It gives you a sports-bar vibe with the numerous flat -screens that are plastered around the restaurant. The staff was friendly and very accommodating.

    why this restaurant would be part of restaurant week - it was daylight bright, empty in the restaurant, full of horse gamblers outside the restaurant in this next room, TVs with horse races everywhere, one waitstaff who had to walk a mile to the only open bar which was in the gambling area. worst bacon/bleu cheese burger I ever had. Very nice potato/asparagus soup.

    My friend and I went for brunch as an alternative to the McLoone's in West Orange after we hear it was excellent. Well this may have the same name but nothing much outstanding about the brunch. Service was a bit slow but the waitress was friendly enough. Wouldn't go back. Next time will wait for an opening at the West Orange location!

    This review is really based on brunch alone. The restaurant is nice, servers are very friendly, food served at brunch is good, but the price is not justifiable based on the limited brunch item selections.

    We really enjoyed our brunch. The food was good and there was always good amounts of food. I have been to two other places for brunch in the pass coupel of months and I must say the food was much better here for the price! The cocktails were the only thing I think needs work. Our service was very good - we were a small group so setting for us was nice, I think they need to re-think seating for larger groups folding tables and chairs make the room look cheap! And if I were in a large group I would not have been happy with my table - I know the large group next to us was not happy....that all they talked about over and over again (they were pretty loud lol). But we still enjoyed ourselves.

    A great place to go for The Kentucky Derby. Everyone was super friendly. The place was very clean, service was good - we were seated immediately and our server was very pleasant. The four course meal was a good deal. My meal, filet mignon, was excellent. My husband had the ribeye cowboy steak which was very tough - everything else was very good. Bartender didn't know how to make a Jamaica coffee - he should have said that because what he did make was just terrible. He needed a lesson on specialty coffee drinks. I would definitely return. I have recommended it to friends.

    All of the food that I have had there the 2 times we were there was all very good. The omlette I had on my 1st visit was outstanding. That time I basically stuck to breakfast items & fresh friut all of which were very good. The second time I was going to have a waffle but there was no sugar free syrup so I tried more of the lunch items & they were also ver good. I have recommended it to several of my friends.

    I rarely write reviews of restaurants, but I feel compelled to talk about this experience. I very badly wanted to enjoy my time here, since I went for my grandmother's birthday dinner. However, multiple service hiccups really detracted from a dining experience in which the food was actually quite good. Without going into too much detail, I will list a few of the issues we had: waitress brought the bottle of wine to our table and left it unopened for 10+ minutes, waitress did not bring out bread and when we asked for it, she blamed its absence on "the bread guy," appetizers came out at the same time as entrees. She was overall a very awful waitress, if not incredibly nice and apologetic. Food was OK, but I couldn't recommend McLoone

    Went to McLoones for dinner. The food was excellent. Better than I expected. My party ordered a cowboy steak and a crab cake dinner. Both dishes were about $ 25 each and there was plenty of food with each dish. Plenty of tv's in the dining area and a nice bar. Would definitly visit this restaurant again.

    It was my birthday as well as superbowl sunday on 2/3. I had been here for their all day brunch a few sundays before and fell in love with this place i just had to book the tables for my brithday/superbowl party. My friends and I had a blast. the food was good, the wings are awesome. The atmosphere is porbably my favorite it is such a nice well kept clean bar/restaurant. I like the fact that you bet on the horses right at your table as well. and watch the game on the big screens or privately at your table. Overall one of the best places I have ever celrbated my birthday! Our waiter Dan was the best as well! He took care of us and we all thank him for his service.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    Located in an off track betting parlor it' has the feel of a fast food operation rather than a restaurant whose prices are inflated as if it were a casino restaurant. The betting machines in the restaurant didn't work so you had to walk thru then betting parlor to bet on a race. Don't go if you just want to eat. They opened a much nicer restaurant in West Orange if you want to try their food in better surroundings.

    We hadn't realized that this restaurant was inside Winners - horse betting. That brings in an entirely different class of people and changes the restaurant environment. We love all of the other McLoone's, but probably will not return to this one. The edamame was delicious, as was the apple walnut salad.

    I attended with a group of eight former co-workers to support the local BEOF fundraiser. We stayed at the bar(in the restaurant)and seemed to be enjoying the night.We were later seated, together, in the dining area. Our waiter was fine. Most of the party ordered burgers. One girl ordered the buffalo wontons. One guy ordered the chicken pot pie. The wontons came out shortly. The rest of the order took an exceptionally long time(well over an hour). When the food did arrive, some of it was cold. The manager did come to the table but gave the excuse of being short staffed. That further infuriated one gentleman and he left the restaurant, vowing to never return. When we were finished eating,the manager returned and provided compensation.

    This McLoone's is designed like an up-scaled, modern diner. It is attached to the new 'Winners' (off track betting) facility and makes for a night filled with fun, as you can bet and watch your races from your table, which is why we went there. the food was very good, and the service was excellent! It has a big bar, many high top tables booths, plus tables. The place is surrounded by silent televisions showing different sporting events, and of course the horses! Directly outside is Winners, which is wonderfully electric! This is a fun night out for sure!
