In my opinion because of the mandatory gratuity, services are compromised. The place and furniture need some sprucing.

Inside a casino (low end casino at that) so don't expect much from Rooney's. Typical bar food, limited menu. Chili was surprisingly good. Chicken Quesadilla was fair. BLT and Turkey Club with French Fries were a decent portion. Don't expect much...remember you are in Yonkers

Waited even with a reservation was seated in the back room. It was very busy/crowded obviously didn't have enough staff to serve all the customers. We waited almost an hour for a sandwhich & salmon very unacceptable. Been here many times & this was the longest we have waited for out order!

The turkey sandwich was very good and so was the service. My only issue is the cost of beer. To pay $ 8 for a domestic light bottle beer is just too much, and this is way out of line.

The restaurant ran out of red wine. I have never heard of a restaurant running out of red wine. I ordered brisket. It had BBQ sauce so I asked if they could read the label to see if there was gluten in it. Two different servers came back and one said no gluten and one said yes gluten. ugh!!

I think the server did a great job but he needed help to deliver the food! Most of the food was cool/warm but not hot! it's a fun place but I think a party of 4 has a different meal than a party of 12!

I have been to Dan Rodney's several times and it was usually OK but this time was terrible!

I waited forever for a glass of water and an eternity for my food.

When the food came, the creamed spinach was not warm but cold and the rest of my meal was room temperature.

This leads me to believe my food was just sitting there for a while.

The waitress also never came by to ask how everything was, and I had to beg for a refill on my water.

Terrible experience.

It was my moms birthday and it was great for a quick bite before we hit the casino floor. My son, brother and mother had a time. I watched the horse races that were live at the casino/racetrack. My brother son enjoyed boxing on one of the many around the room. We had wings, fries, salmon, and mac and cheese, the service was good and quick and my reservation was waiting for us even though we were 15 min late.

The place has changed for the better over the last year or so. The food quality has improved and the staff/level of service has drastically improved. We only had apps but the BBQ wings were wonderful. The BBQ sauce and the blue cheese dipping sauce is probably best we've ever tasted. Hands down They beat the candlelight's "famous" wings any day !!
