Diner Reviews
  • "Food, wine and staff were great, but a little pricey for lunch. Great for business lunch, but for beach folks too expensive and not casual."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "On the beach, great spot. Very nice hostesses & staff. Food was very good - restaurant was busy and service wasn't up to par"

  • "Screaming babies at nearby table ruins experience and detracts from everything positive. If you are going to bring a dessert plate to the table it needs to look tempting, their's looked dried out and weary, more turn off than turn on."

  • "Very excited about eating here to celebrate my son's graduation- kudos to the hostess who quickly accommodated our "increase" in the number of people that joined us last minute without blinking. It was a Friday night, super busy so the kitchen seemed a bit backed up with our food taking long. My son had the Lobster Mac and cheese and he LOVED it... I had a filet which was good (not great) but I eat nationally at many steakhouses so I am picky. We also had some other dishes that were "OK". My husband's chicken dish was cold and he felt it was sitting in the "window" a little too long waiting for the rest of the food. Will be back, but probably to sit outside and enjoy sandwiches, salads and the amazing views at a lower price point."

  • "We had lunch on Friday at McLoone's as we have in the past. service, and food were very good. We also made a diviner reservation for that evening for 7:45 25 min later, we were finally seated. Our server was friendly, and did a nice job. We dine out often, at home and traveling, I have never been in a louder dining environment EVER. if you plan to 1) Hear your server, 2) engage in dinner conversation without yelling, this is not the place for you. Understanding that a large and busy restaurant will not be quiet. At one table patrons were literally screaming. Inexcusable in what is billed as a fine dining establishment. Food was good, but not great...mine came out cold and had to be reheated. All in all it was a disappointing experience."

  • "While the menu looked great the food was good, not great very pricey, and the ambiance was ver loud. Likely would try somewhere else in Long Branch when in the area."

  • "Mcloons was a great find while in long branch. The food was excellent, we didn't have to wait for a table and the staff was extremely helpful. In particular the mango salmon was particularly good. There were also a large variety of items on the menu."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The place has great food and sits right on the beach. I highly recommend their Sunday brunch, but call early to make a reservation. Early as in a week in advance to be sure."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The restaurant was crowded but our table was ready. We had the special; skirt steak with pesto mashed potatoes and onion rings. Delicious!"
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "We decided on McLoone's because it was recommended by someone in our party. There were five woman in our party there to celebrate a 50th birthday. The excellent service started as soon as we walked in and were warmly greated at the door. The waiter and his staff waited on us like we were the only ones in the restaurant (we weren't, the place was packed). Possible the best service I have ever had!!!! We all had the most amazing seafood, 3 had the sea bass, 2 had the lobster. We all can't wait to go back!!!!!"
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "The food, the staff and the atmosphere were just perfect for our graduation luncheon, and even though the restaurant was extremely crowded the day we were there (multiple families celebrating graduation) the service was just spectacular!"

  • "Mcloone's was excellent! We had no problem getting a table since I had booked my reservation in advance online. The staff was very friendly and prompt in getting us our drink/food requests. I ordered the salad wedge and Mahi. My boyfriend ordered the onion soup and crab cakes. We both enjoyed our meals! The romantic atmosphere was the perfect way to spend my boyfriend's birthday. "

  • " Too much of a "factory" with unappealing decor. Not at all an intimate dining experience. "
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "Had a very enjoyable dinner with a scenic view of the beach. I ordered the salmon which was cooked perfectly and generously portioned. My friends also enjoyed their meals which included the Mcloones special sushi roll and the classic burger. Dessert's were large. One would be plenty for two people. "

  • "Every time we eat here we have a great experience. We just ate there the other night for my daughters & her boyfriends college graduation. His family just loved it and kept saying it was a great idea to come here."

  • "Chose fro Open Table a beach front restaurant, and we were not disappointed at all. From the terrific drinks, the excellent wedge salad, Grouper was the best with the lobster risotto, as were the crab cakes. We squeezed in room for dessert, a peanut butter chocolate brownie with ice cream, Umm Ummm good, Service was attentive, Our waitress told us it was her first night, but she had excellent backup from the staff. A definite return when back in Long Branch. 5 star compliments "

  • "Despite being very busy ( and noisy) we enjoyed our lunch although I was a bit disappointed with the blandness of the warm lobster roll. There was plenty of lobster but sauce lacked some punch. Our server was great and we will be back but not in the summer - much too crowded for conversation."
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "Great Steak, Pier Salad . Service was excellent. Highly recommend dinning here."

  • "Thank you to all for making our Mothers Day Saturday luncheon very special....you never disappoint! Food was right on target as usual, wait staff very accommodating and for a Saturday where the place was packed with communion, graduation and early Mothers Day celebration we were not rushed or asked to give up our table with a great view sooner than we were ready."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "I rate this location much higher than McLoone's Boathouse in West Orange. This one has a bigger and better menu. Some items are shared across restaurant. The lobster encrusted sea bass and penne vodka were both great. The desserts weren't that great. We sent one back and base on the reaction of others weren't inclined to try another one. In our group we tried 5 desserts and they were so so. "
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "Celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary, my husband and I would be having a great time no matter where!! Love the ocean view .... but lots of beach replenishment equipment everywhere. Also, the food was fair at best. The restaurant was not crowded (Monday night) so that was not the problem. I have been here before and the food was much better -- must have been an "off" night."
    Dined on 5/5/2014
  • "Food was very good....waitress we had was extremely friendly & knowledgeable "

  • "Nice but food not worth the money. Great service though. Too noisy too. Had to scream to be heard across the table. "
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "I was very impressed with the manner and ease of arranging the table via the internet. The smoothest of scheduling, the arrivall and greeting was what we had expected and remembered in past dining. However, the food was slightly expensive and taste was good to fair. Portions were proper. Cheese cake desert was tasteless. High noise environment"
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "This was the third or fourth time we at at McLoone's Pier House - the food was very mediocre and barely warm - we returned on this visit to Long Branch because of good experiences in the past - I doubt we would return again. The noise level was very high and it was difficult to hear the others at our table. I had the crab cakes and they had more vegetables and bread crumbs than crab meat - others at the table had pasta dishes and the pasta was drowned in sauce. "
    Dined on 5/1/2014
  • "Our table had a spectacular ocean view. The décor is beachy and yet elegant at the same time. The service was impeccable; we had one of the best waitresses I have come across in a very long time. The staff was friendly and efficient. Food portion size was amazing."
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "I dislike mediocrity...our dinner for 12 was...well "acceptable". We got what we ordered, nobody openly complained about the food, the crashing waves just outside the glass made everyone feel like they were having a "special" night. However, a second glass of wine would have been nice (normally a third or fourth, for a long night) and a bit more attention being spent on food served at appropriate temperature or even asking IF we were happy with our food. I don't want to complain, but I have to say that a little more personality and professionalism could have made it great."

  • "Saturday was our anniversary,we made reservations and every one was very helpful . Brian made a special effort to seat us by a window, everyone made our dinner special, Kyle came over and asked if we needed any thing and how we were enjoying our evening, everything was great. We will keep coming back AAAA++++ "

  • "We were a group of ladies out for lunch. Food was very good, alittle pricey for lunch, but worth it. Beautiful relaxing view, alittle load, but I'm quite sure we were a good part of the noise. Wait service could have been alittle more attentive, but all and all a good experience. Would go back again"

  • "Surprised wife with diner for her 50th Birthday. Warm, comfortable, semi nautical atmosphere with views of beach and Atlantic Ocean … Even at night!! Service was very friendly and prompt. Server actually produced a bottle of wine not formally listed on the wine list. Recommend the broiled Grouper for diner and the peanutbutter brownie for two for dessert. As the other McLoone’s Restaurants we’ve frequented in the past, this one did not disappoint. "
