Food was very good but the beer was flat and not very cold. I recommend to go for good reasonably priced food.

Everything was great! My meal though was totally over salted and my husband’s medium-rare steak was very rare. Service was outstanding. Appetizers were outstanding. We will definitely be returning.

Been here a few times and food is usually good, but not great. This time me and my girlfriend have salads and they were not very good at all. The greens were limp and some of the ingredients were non-existent. It was basically lettuce with chicken on it. Definitely not worth $16. Very disappointed.

We were there for lunch this occasion. Current level covid protocols were followed. Booth seating was a little tight. Service was fast. Staff was curteous and attentive. They were pleasant. Food was good. Served fresh. Seasoned and prepared well. Overall a very pleasant, safe and good dining experience.

This was our first visit in several years. Our table was ready and we were seated right away. The service was good, but the meal I chose left a bit to be desired. The blue cheese burger was prepared well, but the cheese was overpowering. I opted for the barbecue chips (rather than the french fries), but that was a big mistake. The chips were tasteless (more like cardboard). I mentioned this to management who subsequently agreed ("they failed to properly season them"), but offered no substitute or compensation. Fortunately, my wife's chicken pot pie was a big hit: it was fresh and homemade.

Was sat next to the loud kitchen, loud room with someone playing a children’s show loudly on an iPad at the next table. The table itself was dirty when we sat down. Ended up leaving before the waiter even greeted us.

The waitress we had was very nice and the food was OK but the place was in terrible shape. We were brought to this back room area that did not look as nice as the front bar area. It was super dirty, the tables were sticky, The floor was covered with food, and the bench that I sat on had food on it from the previous person who sat there and no one even batted an eye when I went this is gross. We definitely will not be back

We visited two separate times. The first time we felt rushed out as if they wanted to clear our table and close up and go home. The second time the service was so poor we couldn’t actually enjoy our meal. We were there an hour before we received our drinks.

First let me state I'm a big fan of McLoone's restaurants, However Tim needs to make
some changes at CJ McLoone's in Tinton Falls. We had a reservation for 4 last night
6/4/2021 to celebrate a 53rd Annaversary. We were seated and ignored. Had to ask
another server who our server was. Our server came around and was not experienced
at all. I know that many places have problems getting help because of the pandemic
that created a shortage of people wanting to go back to work, however, it doesn't take much to train a new person in the proper way to serve food. Tim McLoone needs to hire an adult to run the place. The young manager and hostess were over their heads. Don't get me wrong the food was fine and we like the place,but it needs some serious help in the management area. I'm being a little critical because I want to see this place be a gotta go to place in our community. I hope Tim see's this and makes the needed changes.

Food was good but took forever. Waitress disappeared and had to flag someone else down to pay. She didn’t even come back to us at the end. There were no other customers so not sure what the problem was. With plenty of other restaurants vying for business we will not be back here.

Excellent atmosphere, incredibly tasty meal and lovely servers. The wine list is also well rounded and the ambiance overall quite inviting. Have to say though, the people behind the bar are some of the best we have met. Well done!

Went with my GF to eat here for the first time on a Saturday Night (so pretty busy night). We were seated without any utensils or napkins. Ordered the margherita pizza as an app and it was good. My GF had the veggie tacos, they were okay, but nothing special. I ordered the East Orange, which was good. The server did a great job at making sure our drinks were filled and our food came out on time. Definitely would recommend the Spicy Paloma, if you are really into tequila and some heat.

Delicious!!! First time at this restaurant. Restaurant menu was very interesting and very well executed. Loved the BLACK PEPPER SIRLOIN, the brandy-peppercorn glaze was to die for, asparagus was tender and the mashed potatoes were served nice and hot. I enjoyed the Crispy Goat Cheese Salad, my husband enjoyed the Coconut Chicken Tenders and the Flan for dessert. Thank you!!!

Made reservations online then called to confirm a high top for 4 people as well asked if there was a table time limit since we wanted to watch the NCAA Final Four Games. Was told there was no time limit and they will gladly put both games on.
We arrived and as the hostess sat us down we were told we
Had a 1.5 hour limit to eat and then our time would be up. When I said I called and was told differently, the hostess seemed like she couldn’t be bothered. Being Seton Hall Alumni as well as Basketball fans we ALWAYS come here for Seton Hall games and have never an issue. Would of be nice if we were told over the phone if there was a time limit, even after I asked if there was.
