McLoone's Pier House Ratings and Reviews
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.
The servers were polite and friendly. We ordered the California Roll it was tasty. Could of been rolled a little tighter but worth ordering. Our main dish was the Lobster Crusted Sea Bass The dish was delicious but one entry was cooked prefect and the other was under done. So we where unable to eat the meal at the same time. But the manager and servers was very apologetic I wished they gave us something off the bill for our inconvenience. But the meal was worth returning
As always Mcloones Pier House never disappoints. Food is always excellent and service is the best. We retired to Florida four years ago but always make Mcloones a priority stop when we are in town. The couple we were meeting this time were running late due to city traffic, the very nice hostess happily pushed our reservations back to accommodate our friends. The most amazing thing is a couple of bartenders remember us and always make it a point to greet us even if not the one serving us. This is the way a restaurant should be run but unfortunately many are not. Keep up the good work! 👏👏👏👏
All in all a decent seaside dining experience. My only grip was the overall attitude and demeanor of the girls at the hostess station. What a surly bunch. Smile Ladies! I entered with my usual jovial introduction and was met with stares and scowls. I asked for a window table (It was not busy, had a reservation, and tables were open) and was walked the entire length of the restaurant and parked in a corner. Felt like I was being punished. Went back and asked for the table we had walked past. They conceded. After that rough start things got better, but they put a damper on what could have been a much better experience.
Large restaurant, good vibe, ocean-front seating, live music, attentive service, all the things you want in a good restaurant except the prices are too high and the food isn't that great. Had phenomenal soft shell crabs but that was a special item and everyone else's meals were just average. Waitress recommended crab cakes but they were dry and bready. Not a whole lot of options for dining along the shore in Long Branch so I might go back but wish the food was better even if they have to charge the high prices.
We went for our anniversary because it seemed like a special place. The table and view were great but the food was overpriced and small portions. Nothing special at all. The waiter Jake was great but forgot to bring bread... wait time for food was long and the place was not busy as it was during the week. I would not spend the money to go back.
