Wonderful place right on the ocean. The food is delicious - some items are a little pricey. The staff is very nice.

We have dined at McCloone's many time before and have always enjoyed the views and food. Our visit in April was very disappointing. The calamari was overcooked and the crab tower was awful. The crab was not fresh. I ordered the kale salad and it was brought out to me without any kale. Apparently they ran out and decided to replace it with spinach and not ask me.

The food was not worth the price no matter how beautiful the view.

Great food, wonderful server who happily responded to our request to get the bread and delicious roasted tomato dip they serve for dinner, for lunch. The desserts were scrumptious...usually get the fabulous flourless chocolate cake but tried the new peanut butter brownie and it was a chocolate lover’s dream!!
And the view of the beach and ocean can’t be beat!

Very good food; very good service. The Lobster Mac 'n Cheese is especially good. Mixed drinks are unreasonably expensive for this area, though well-made.

I was at a conference in the area with a friend, and I had been at one of your properties prior to Sandy. So I went to this one this time. I was not disappointed. It is everything that I’ve come to expect from your branch.
The food, service, and ambiance were amazing. And the view was insane. Will definitely be back.

On my last visit I have to say I was very disappointed with this restaurant. I can not understand that because it is ocean front that it is ok to lack in quality of food. I don't mind paying more because of the atmosphere but there there is no excuse for poor food quality. The salmon can out over cooked witch there is no excuse for. They served brussels sprouts the size of golf balls that was hard to eat. I sent mine back to cook them more. They returned halved and still hard. My moms meat dish should have been tender enough to just cut with a fork. It was not. I had a pork chop witch I will not complain about because it wasn't over cooked. Thank goodness. I will not blame the staff for this issue, they did the best they can and the service was good. So if you don't mind paying extra for the view and not food quality enjoy.

They forgot to bring salad and when no onions was requested it was not honored. Finally there was no toilet paper in bath stall. Very disappointing. We held our daughters wedding at this restaurant and know very well what it can be.

I think if it weren't for the ok service and the lack of attention to our table, it might have been a wonderful spot to hang with your friends. It took forever for the waitress to come to our table for us to even ask for a check. Finally, we got the check and then never saw the waitress again. We got up asking for our waitress or someone to charge our cards and finally, when they had to find the waitress, when she returned she handed us the cards without even looking at us. It just seemed a little rude.

The food was good enough, but overpriced. Nice view of the ocean. I think that's what we were paying for. Server was attentive, but food was brought out and taken away too quickly. We were not even finished with our soup, and they were ready to take it away and bring us our entrees. Very noisy. I would think that, for the price, we could have a quiet, relaxed dinner and enjoy the view. Probably wouldn't go back.

Casual family dinner the day after Christmas. We had a nice table on the window facing the ocean. Not busy so surprised with the uneven service. Waited a long time for entrees and then 4 came out at once and the 5th person had to wait 10-15 minutes. That’s one of the worst offenses in the restaurant business. You create an awkward uncomfortable situation where the 5th person tells the others to start eating and they wait out of courtesy while their food gets cold. Speaking of cold, our table was in direct line with the front door and we got a rush of cold air every time the front door opened. It was bone chilling and my elderly mom ate with her coat on. Manager on duty said hello when we came in but never came by to check in with us or I would have told him this place needs to step it up big time. Disappointed in overall experience, food quality and value. My son described this place as “Applebee’s on the Ocean” which is a bit harsh but frankly is not far from the truth.
