We were greeted quickly and with an smile. Our table was available when arrived. Nice size menu with a great mix for anyone's taste. The food was delicious and we all had leftovers for next day lunch. We will be returning

A perennial favorite of ours, this visit did not disappoint. Delicious soul-warming chicken pot pie with flaky crust, seasoned perfectly. Shrimp fried rice was very tasty and the portions were very generous. Server was very pleasant as they always are in this establishment. I like supporting this restaurant because the owner donates hundreds of hours to the handicapped with his talented group. It's a win-win.

We went for St. Patrick's Day. They had a special menu (in addition to the regular menu) with many Irish classics. And all the TVs keep everyone occupied.

This wasn't my first time at this restaurant and I recommended it to a group of friends. We really enjoyed our food as well as the fact that the room wasn't overly loud. I'm sure I'll return at another time. The food was consistent and good, and the wait service was excellent.

Was offered specials if the evening. Ordered one. Wait staff came back and said it was no longer available. 7pm reservation. Ordered plain baked potato. Told they had run out if that too.
Should have better kitchen management.

We arrived for our reservation and were seated immediately. Sat at nice table in back room away from the fray. Our server Megan was very attentive and helpful. We have had her before so were happy to see her again. All staff who came to our table were nice and professional. I don't always love the food at the many McLoone establishments but CJ McLoone's is consistently good. Robinson's Ale House also does a very good job. The new venue in Sea Bright is gorgeous and worth a trip but the food is so-so

My husband,son and I go to have lunch or dinner at least once a week or twice a week. Food is alway awesome!!! And the service is outstanding especially our favorite waitress Jen. She makes us feel like family. My son is a diabetic so he has special needs and Jens on it even if she's not serving our area. Plus we love all the games on TV.

I hadn't been here in a while, and when deciding on a place for lunch with a friend, noticed they had gluten-free options on the menu now. Lunch was great. The food was really well prepared and tasty, and the gluten-free bread they use made me want to come back for more. I have to come back and try their Tuesday night burger! Service was friendly and prompt. What more could you want...good food, good service, reasonable prices.

No complaints except the service was a bit slow. Normally I wouldn't mind, but I had an appt. & needed to finish by a certain time. I didn't think to mention it to the waitress, or I'm sure she'd have expedited our orders. Other than that, it was great.

Appetizer was dry and burnt. One chicken entree was burnt. One entree( beef) was mostly fat. Overcharged for one glass of wine. Brought to waitress attention and was promptly removed from Bill. Restaurant was not crowded so this could not be used as excuse.

The food was excellent. We were celebrating a high school graduation so we had a large party of 6. There were quite a few large parties and that made the noise level in the restaurant pretty loud. It was difficult to hear the conversations at our own table.

Came on a Tuesday night for their 2 for 1 burger special. The burger was delicious and cooked as asked. The sweet potato fries were yummy too (extra charge) My husband had a patty melt. Usually patty melts are grilled. This wasn't but he seemed to like it anyway. His regular fries were kind of peppery.
Entrees here are a bit pricey but this special was definitely worth it!

Made reservations through OpenTable. I went with my parents who are in their 70s and 80s and my daughter who is in grade school. We were seated in the bar area on barstools. Barstools are not really appropriate for elderly folks or young children. Another thing was this area was a mess since we came for an early dinner and they were cleaning up from Mother's day brunch. We asked to be seated in the relatively empty dining area with regular height chairs. Though the dining area was relatively empty we were given the table with very uncomfortable folding chairs. The only table in the entire restaurant with folding chairs. There were many other empty tables with regular chairs. I would like to say other things about the hostesses but I will leave that in a private note to the restaurant. Hostesses get an F-. Manager was apologetic after our meal but the damage was done. Very poor experience. Food was ok. Server was good.
