Went with the family. Drinks were great. Waitress Erica was lovely. Appetizers came out quickly and were tasty. Then the wheels came off. Special pasta entree came out prepared totally differently than described. Manager agreed and sent a different dish, though no explanation of how a dish could be totally different than described. Side dishes never came out. Couple next to us was allowed indoors with a barking dog in a stroller? Manager eventually asked them to leave and paid for a drink for us, but enough had gone wrong that, despite the effort, I’d go somewhere else. Just not worth the headache.

Food was terrible overpriced and disquasting. I took my husband there for father’s day and was very disappointed. Food was dry over cooked and not tasty. I usually not bother to leave bad reviews but this time I have to . Terrible food never again

In comparison to last year I feel the quality of the food (my fries were cold) the atmosphere and cleanliness of the restaurant has declined.

Food is okay sushi was not rolled properly or cut evenly. I would not order again. Service was slow even though it was not a busy day. Staff was nice and attentive.

We waited a very long time for the waitress to come by our table after we were seated. After we finally placed our order, the manager came by to tell us that one of the main ingredients in the appetizer we ordered was sold out. The meal itself, the swordfish, was a very small portion and just not worth it for the price they charged. We were not impressed with the service or the food.

We had a 4:30 PM reservation. Why in earth would they place us at a table where the waiter/waitress that handles that table doesn't come in until 5PM. Absolutely stupid.

Staff was very pleasant but even with a reservation we were unable to be seated at window.
Appetizers and cocktails were fine
Entrees were awful. Runny risotto, tasteless shrimp, chewy sun-dried tomatoes thrown in and tiny slivers of something green on top. Second entree was completely cold. Sent both back. We had little confidence other entrees would be any better. Had another cocktail and dessert. Will never return.

Oysters were fresh and delicious, both French onion soup and lobster bisque were loved at my table. The chicken special dish was raved about and enjoyed. The penne vodka was plain tomato sauce. Overall our meals were so enjoyable, and our server Ilene was friendly, and informative about menu. Would both visit again and recommend. Thank you.

Food was excellent. Place was a little noisy, maybe a wedding or event upstairs. Nice location, we had a window seat looking out on the ocean.

This is not the best restaurant ever! The food is honestly very basic. My burger didn’t have any sauces, my fries were dry. There was a lot of noise, I couldn’t hear my friends. The only good thing is the ocean view

Service was great. However we ordered fish and chips and clearly the fish was microwaved and not fried. Had to send it back due to sogginess and when it returned it looked like it was placed in the oven to darken it but not crisp. Total bust. Restaurant is also dated. Never returning.

We originally planned on eating outdoors but due to the cool weather, we asked the hostess if we could get seated near the window indoors and she happily obliged our request. Lovely view and waitress was extremely attentive.

Was not happy with my dinner and neither was my husband. I had to send mine back because the fish was so spicy and did not mention that on the menu. Pricy and not worth it. They did bring me a new piece of fish but dry and overcooked. The Ribeye my husband had was basically a small piece of very fatty meat and definitely over priced.

Walked there on a rainy night. Got a high top table overlooking ocean. Our waitress Lisa as great and the food was awesome. My husband got the hamburger which he said was delicious and I got the Iceberg Wedge Salad which was also delicious. The portions are large. You can relax and not feel rushed. Prices are reasonable for an ocean front restaurant. We are definitely going back!

Service and food quality were average.
Sangria was full of ice and watered down and had no smell or test of wine at all on top of them charging $42 for a half a pitcher of fruit punch but with no fruits!
Windows were dirty and had rust stains dripping all the way down each window with the view of the beach which was not very picture friendly. Management and staff could clearly be heard in the kitchen arguing about work conditions and need for higher pay which was embarrassing to hear. So over all a once beautiful and romantic upscale restaurant has become a below average dining experience and prices way too high for the quality patrons are currently receiving. So sad we really enjoyed McLoones on the Pier for so many years!
