Diner Reviews
  • "The best I can say is adequate. Great view of the ocean partially makes up for overpriced ordinary fare somewhat nicely presented. Though you will enjoy your evening, you will be underwhelmed by the food. Best on our table were the clams on the half shell. Worst was the Lobster Mac 'n Cheese. When a non-dairy dessert was required, one was presented with a caveat that the sauce poured over for presentation did indeed contain dairy. Last chance to let us down, and they did."

  • "Took my mother in law here for her birthday lunch. Food was good, not outstanding. View is really nice and the service was good. Would definitely return, more for the view/ambiance than the food. It is a bit pricey"

  • "The food was delicious and the portion sizes were very generous. My only complaint was that the service was quite slow from out waitress. The food came out from the kitchen in a timely manner, but she was just really slow in taking drink orders/appetizers/main dish ect. It was very very crowded tho. The view was stunning so I would recommend to everyone!"

  • "I have been going to McLoone's Pier House for years. Love the view and atmosphere. I have never had a bad meal and food is priced moderate to slightly expensive. However, drink prices tend to be high so you may want to limit your drinks."

  • "Nice, professional service. It was our servers' first night, he said as he excused himself to find an answer to my question. The service was good. The food was great. Beautiful place, with a view of the beach and the waves. We were celebrating my daughters honor society induction and couldnt have asked for a nicer dining experience."

  • "The title says it all. The food was great, but the service poor. We waited 20 minutes after being seated for a server to show up and once she showed up, she was not very friendly. It seemed she did not want to be at work that night. There was no excuse as it was a Saturday night and the restaurant was not busy. Also, I did not like that there was a singer on a Saturday night. It was very loud and difficult to have a conversation. That took away from the ambience."

  • "Went to McLoones on a first date with a wonderful woman. Though the music was a tad loud, we had a memorable time, with great food, fantastic wine and superb and attentive service. And it didn't cost a fortune!! The restaurant was beautiful inside and out. Romantic atmosphere, (except for the music a bit) and just an overall excellent experience. Needless to say the date went very well and we will definitely be back again!!"

  • "Its a really nice place, servers are adequate, but the food is MEH. Its not inedible, but its not great either. If you are already in Pier Village you are much better off at Serena or The Avenue for the prices at McCloones. I probably will not be returning.."

  • "We had not been to Mccloones in several years and because of the beautiful weather this past Saturday, we decided to take a ride to Pier Village. We had an early dinner here specifically so we could see the water for the duration of our meal. And we were not disappointed with that at all as we got a nice table by the windows. My husband and I both had fish for dinner which was exceptional. Wine list was very good. And I had a house salad to start which was terrific. The restaurant was a bit noisy but not terrible. Our waiter was very good. We will go again."

  • "Have eaten here several times - always great. Asked for (and was given) a window table. The view of the snow-covered sand and ocean was just the best. Seafood is always fresh and presentation is beautiful. We always dined at McLoones Rum Runner in Sea Bright, but that's gone thanks to Sandy - this location is not as casual and does not have outdoor dining, but it is just as good. Never disappoints."

  • "We hosted a business dinner for some out of town guests and McCloones did not disappoint us. They gave us a nice table for 8 in a quiet corner with a great beach view, and thier attention to our needs was excellent. With a lot of variety on the menu everyone found a dish to enjoy and we attacked the peanut butter brownie and the flower less chocolate cake to finish Our meal. I will definitely return when visiting Long Branch again."

  • "Our entrees were very good (I got the crab cakes and my husband got the filet mignon) but the appetizers were not very good. I had the shrimp and crab bisque and it was not very flavorful at all. I actually just ate the chunks of seafood and not the actual soup because it wasn't very good at all. We also got some kind of buffalo dumpling appetizer and the filling was very dry. We expected better food based on their prices."

Went for sushi and oysters for an appetizer and I had the Monkfish Special and she had the Sirloin. Finished off with Toll House Cookie pie! Everything tasty and fresh! Would definitely recommend and go back!"

  • "We returned to McCloone's on Friday night in Long Branch and was very disappointed. The first time we went everything was good, however the food just wasn't right this time and over priced. I ordered the skirt steak which was tough and a very small in portion. The dish was over priced @ 32.00. My girlfriend enjoyed her salmon dish and the salad was good. Me personally left hungry and unsatisfeld."

Can't wait to come back..."

  • "Last minute decision while looking for a halfway point to meet friends who are seafood while we are not. It was our first time at McLoone's but we would definitely return. The food, both land and sea, was excellent and our server was friendly and competent. It was however rated with $$ but we found it to be more pricey."

  • "location is great right on the ocean, food quality is very good especially the baked brie (ask for extra rasberry sauce), service is usually good to very good although can be slow even when restaurant is not busy. Biggest problem is hostess/host seem disconnected or uncaring about seating couples next to loud tables of 6 or more people. Tables are positioned close and sounds resonate. This happens quite frequently and i have to promptly ask for a different table as soon as I observe potential problems or our experience will be unpleasant."

  • "My wife and I came to the Pier House for dinner before heading off to a New Year's Eve concert. We were delayed getting there (my wife called to let them know), yet the hostess was accommodating - pretty amazing considering they were quite busy. Our waitress was very pleasant and attentive, and we were never rushed during the course of our appetizer/entrée/dessert. The food was excellent - pricey (the Pier Village effect? Or is it to pay for repairs from Sandy) - but absolutely delicious. Although tasty, the beef skewers were too skimpy to be worth the price, and I thought the fish dishes we had were on the high side. But overall, it was a satisfying meal for both of us and a great start to ringing in the new year."
