Choice of food was outstanding. The crab cakes are delicious. My only complaint is that the shrimp should have been deveined. Carrot cake was amazing.

I’ve been to McLoone’s several times in the past. It was a beautiful winter day this past Sunday so the place was jamming. Not sure if they just weren’t expecting a big crowd or couldn’t manage serving brunch and the lunch crowd but the food was not up to par by any means. The four of us were seated by a window table which had a perfect view of the beach. Our server was attentive for the most part. Our appetizer (wings) came out close to a half hour after we ordered. A couple who got seated after us received their two burgers before the app even came out. They were your typical wings, the sauces got mixed up though which wasn’t a huge issue. When our entrees arrived my sweet potato fries were cold and rubbery. The black bean burger had minimal taste and the guacamole didn’t seem fresh at all (maybe a day old?). The burgers were flat and over cooked with burnt edges. The crispy chicken sandwich ordered was good but the fries were barely warm. Maybe they’ve switched chefs or were just overwhelmed but this particular experience there was nothing to write home about. Hopefully it was just an off day but for the price we paid, they should have no off days here.

The view was gorgeous, a last minute request for a window seat was granted despite how busy they were. The food was great. The Caesar salad wasn’t doused in dressing. You could taste the cold romaine and shaved Parmesan and crispy croutons & it wasn’t overwhelmed with the taste of dressing. The bread my crispy chicken sandwich came on was deliciously crunchy. And the portions were big enough to not allow for dessert which looked delicious.
Highly recommend this bright, airy affordable beachside restaurant.

Been going here for the last two years and this was absolutely the worst experience. Had the scallops, over cooked. My friend had lobster and it was cold. Service was almost non existent. Good server wearing pajamas? There was a couple that allowed their infant to screen them entire time and the staff did nothing. Very disappointed.

The view is spectacular! The food is unique and delicious. The crab/avocado/mango appetizer was HUGE and the different flavors/textures made it a wonderful dish. Waitstaff was attentive and made great recommendations. I would definitely recommend for summer fare. The view is spectacular!

Food was fresh and outstanding. Service excellent. Restaurant was not busy so quiet until a group of 10 was seated right next to us - which I didn’t understand since there was plenty of other space.

Really like this place at all times of the year.

We had an out of town co-worker with us who had never been to the Jersey Shore. We picked McLoone's for dinner so she could sit directly on the waters edge! The food and atmosphere were excellent. A little pricey but best ocean views.

The staff was very friendly, professional and attentive. I had a light lunch, of the crab and avocado tower which was good, and the French Onion soup. The soup wasn't good at all, didn't have a rich savory broth and had a strange taste. Don't know if I'd go back.

Used to be one of our favorites but didn’t enjoy it as much this time. For some reason we were seated right next to one of the few occupied tables in the place. Tight squeeze for the staff every time. Felt a little pricey for the level of food. Cappuccino was lukewarm. Fish was a little dry. Sadly, slightly disappointed

NY’s Eve at Pier House was very nice. We had a lovely table overlooking the beach. Food was good.. wait staff was courteous and responsive. Felt a bit rushed, but we chalked it up to general extra energy of the evening.

Raman our server was attentive yet not intrusive.
Edamame was cooked just right with just the right amount of salt.
Salad greens were fresh and crispy, my daughter’s shrimp well done.
Would come again!

Meh....indifferent service, mediocre food. Told the waiter the bisque tasted like dishwater, which it did he could have cared less. Nice atmosphere and good bread. Overall there are a lot better options in the area.

I had booked our party of 6 for my daughter’s birthday and noted it was for a birthday...no one ever mentioned it. The waiter was difficult to find. The Lobster Bisque soup was the worst I have ever had! Sometimes too much cooking sherry ruins it but this soup had more taste issues than that and barely two pieces of lobster and those were tough. There was a very long gap between appetizers and entrees. One order of ravioli came out as a completely different dish and took quite a while to deliver the ravioli meal. I personally had the lobster crusted Halibut which had no flavor. This was my first and last time eating at McLoone’s Pier House and I do not recommend it.

I would recommend it for lunch or a weekend brunch. The views are spectacular of the lake. The service was ok. The food was average but pricy. There were very few customers the night we ate there but the servers seemed bored.
