    Dined here with a friend for Pier Village Restaurant Week. The Restaurant Week menu had nice choices and the value couldn't be beat. Everything was delicious and the service by Christian couldn't be better. He was helpful, friendly, and pretty much perfect with his service. I absolutely recommend Restaurant Week or not, I've never been disappointed here. Highly recommend.

    I took a chance and made reservation with my fiancé for our anniversary at McLoone's. We walked in and the place was empty so I’m assuming, employees were probably waiting to leave. No greeting from the host, I tell her I have reservations, she sits us down, waitress gives us the most minimal service. I had the NY steak medium and my fiancé salmon for the price I didn’t think the quality was there. Great ambiance and we did have the restaurant to ourselves just wished the staff was friendler.

    Our table next to the window afforded a beautiful view of the ocean at night. Overhead strings of lights created a lovely ambiance. The food selections were perfect on the Pier Village Restaurant Week menu. We had the salmon and beef medallions entrees. Cooked perfectly! Very nice waitress! It was a delicious and relaxing dinner experience!

    The service was fabulous. The food was excellent. There was a Batchelor party upstairs and the music was so loud and disruptive to any conversation. I was with my family and we were struggling to hear each other and raising our voices to speak. Dinner was a lot of work. I could not hear the music at the bar, Which is usually very good. This has not happened before when you hosted a wedding. Sorry about this review.

    All I can say is wow! I have been coming here for years love this place no matter what season. Our server was Sandy and she was an absolute delight, from beginning to end she made dinner such an enjoyable comfortable experience as if you were home. Her personality is absolutely amazing and she’s very caring and it was nice having conversations with Sandy. She didn’t rush out any of our food with our appetizers and entrees which gave us a nice breather for the next courses. But out of every server I have had she was the best one and I cant wait to Be back again and have Sandy serve us again! Food was absolutely amazing can’t say enough about it!

    Well the restaurant was empty for lunch Feb 8th I think. I wheel my 90 year old mom into the restaurant and we sit down for lunch. She has two balloons attached to her wheel chair stating 90th birthday. Not one server, hostess manager even addressed my mom!!!!!! Every diner who passed us stopped and said happy birthday to my mom! People on boardwalk stopped. Very very disappointing! Will not be returning every year for all of our family birthdays!

    Went on a Sunday for lunch it was lovely. Ambiance was great, service was super and food was tasty. It is nestled in the perfect spot right on the beach off of the boardwalk and offers so many food options for seafood lovers and nonseafood eaters. Short rib nachos, wings and calamari were delish.

    Food came out ice cold… many people came to the table to apologize but no one offered any compensation. I don’t expect a free meal… but when my almost $40 pasta comes out stone cold, making my wife try to wait for me to eat.. then her food is cold by the time my food comes. I would expect at least a free dessert to accommodate our inconvenience. Had to flag done someone to fix the problem in the first place because the staff wasn’t very attentive. Great atmosphere but would not go back after that.

    I requested a seat that would allow me to navigate my wheelchair to the buffet and it was provided. Out table for 5 adults was perfect along the windows with a great view of the Atlantic. We always start out with breakfast items followed by the raw bar. Lox and bagels are tasty but my favorite by far was the salmon in lemon crème sauce. I am a big fan of lox not salmon but the crème sauce mellowed out the taste of the fish and I served it over the Spanish rice. Wait staff terrific!

    I'm so sad to say this because I am a long time long branch resident and mcCloones has been a staple for years. Maybe it was because it was New Year's Eve… But we had a 6 o'clock reservation so it wasn't even jammed. The waiter and/or the kitchen messed up my friends order a number of times, causing delays and disappointment. The food was sadly nothing outstanding… I personally had the mushroom ravioli and it was incredibly salty. As a special treat we ordered crème brûlées for dessert for the table, it's our favorite. And it was sadly so subpar we could not even eat them. I don't take pleasure in leaving bad reviews and I sincerely hope that this was just a one off because it was a busy night but not a great experience

    I was very disappointed at the quality of the food. I made reservations for a group of 8 my 4 siblings and spouses. We have been to McCloons before and had a nice lunch. The food today wasn’t up to past standard. Calamari appetizer was good. The lunch special of meat loaf eas not of the average diner quality. I left 3/4 of my Reuben on the plate. The ocean view was lovely. Holiday decorations nice. I was embarrassed that I chose this place for our get together.

    A little crowded but it was fun. My suggestion is when you have macaroni and cheese as a kids item, it should be more kid friendly such as using smaller pasta like elbows

    We frequently dine at McCloone's and live across the way in Pier Village. We recently took our 2 grandkids to the "Lunch with Santa". It was great. Santa was very authentic and made himself available to all the kids. Our server, Sandy was attentive, fun and made our lunch special. The kids loved the food and there were plenty of kid's options. Overall, a great time.

    This was our second Thanksgiving buffet at Pier House. Love the raw-bar and salad bar. The dessert bar was spectacular. There was a great selection of breads, hot dishes from several kinds of pasta to salmon and various vegetables. On the not so great side, the stuffing was dry and somewhat bland. That definitely could have been improved with more sage or Bells seasoning and more celery, onion and most importantly, broth. Turkey was very good from the carving station, but not so good from the serving pans of prepared choices and tasted pre-packaged. The roast beef at the carving station was not rare enough for me and seemed to be a tougher cut than last year. This was great last year so disappointing this year. Green beans were great. The Brussels sprouts were undercooked and looked like they had been steamed instead of baked. Put some maple syrup and pecans in a pan with the Brussels sprouts and bake those babies. All in all, considering the large number of people they were cooking for, they definitely worked hard to make a great Thanksgiving feast. And our server Sandy was very helpful and gracious.
