McLoone's Pier House - National Harbor
Bad service sorry.....................................,,,
Food and service was outstanding. My date had some unique dietary restriction and they were very helpful in getting her the meal that she wanted.
Every year at this is my fiancée birthday and it’s always special and wonderful. We had the same waiter last year and this year and he is the best omg we love him. Thank you for making this birthday special
Overall great experience for Brunch at the Harbor.
This is my second time at McLoone's in 2 years, I notice the food quality has changed. I got the Broiled Seafood Platter and the Crab Cake was made with some sort of filler with little or no crabmeat, the taste was not pleasing at all. The Jerk Shrimp was overdone. When I was there 2 years ago the food was great. I asked the Waitress was McLoones under new management and she said yes, she also said the menu had changed. Needless to say for $151.00 I expected the food quality to be a whole lot better. So my experience this time at McLoones was not good at all.
Go after happy hour. On a Tuesday night, bar noise level was so high we couldn’t hear the waiter or each other at our table of four.
The bar was very loud and sometimes overbearing. Both our waiter and the hostess apologized for the noise. There were times we didn’t even talk because we would have been yelling.
Our party of 3 had a reservation made over a week prior to our dinner date. We were seated at a hightop Bar table and told that it was the only table available. After waiting 5-10 mins, a waiter came by with 3 empty water glasses, stating that he would return with water. We ordered a bottle of wine at this time. After an additional 10 mins, we still had no water or wine, and the waiter had not returned. We decided to leave and have dinner at another restaurant.
That food was amazing!
The brunch was not worth the cost. The selection was very limited. Also, I recommend one person working the omelette station and one person working the waffle station; instead of having one person doing dual roles..... the lines are too long.
In addition, customers should be aware of their bill, I was double charged for my meal.
We had a absolute wonderful experience; from the food to the service! We will be returning again!
First time dining here and I enjoyed my visit. They had a couple of large parties and I was glad I made a reservation. Will definitely return.
The food here was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! The Drinks were to die for and everything was perfect. I took some friends there this weekend and we were all blown away by how amazing everything was. Thank you for turning a fun last meal together into something fun and memorable!
We WILL be coming back next year!
Went there to celebrate my best friend’s recent engagement and she was visiting from San Diego. I ordered steak and eggs. I told the server I wanted my steak medium rare but my steak turned out more well done than anything. A bit disappointing since I like my steak medium rare. We ordered three whiskey mules. None had any mint in them and they tasted a bit funny so had to ask the bartender to remake them. My friend asked for scrambled eggs with his steak and got over easy instead. The rye bread was really good. Overall experience was ok.
Service was extremely slow and salmon burger was soso.
The seating was not ideal. We were located in the middle of the restaurant surrounded by a party of 10 leaving us no privacy.
Even with a reservation, we were seated in the bar area. Our server was amazing; she made excellent recommendations, was kind, professional and attentive. The food was a bit disappointing. They must've changed their crab cake recipe:-( It was soggy, had filler and peppers in it. Not what I remember and enjoyed from my last visit there. Don't fix something that isn't broken.
Great ambiance and service for a special Valentines evening.
I read the reviews on Open Table and decided to make a reservation. It was a great choice and the food was amazing. It was not crowded and we had a very nice waitress. I will definitely go back.
Food was very good and waitress was very attentive. We reserved ahead, noting that it was a special occasion, and asked for a table overlooking the water. For some reason, they reserved us a table in the far corner by the bar and away from the water. But the hostess moved us to a table overlooking the water when we asked.
Excellent service. Beautiful location. Wonderful food.
Well never even got to the meal because we left after almost 2 hours trying to get 2 sets of drinks. The waiter was clueless and after waiting so long for drinks we left. Will not ever go back there. Too bad. Great ambiance and view!!
It took multiple attempts and about 30 minutes for them to split the bill so that we could turn in our receipts for work. Slightly ridiculous. Sunset was nice but they didn't control that.
Good food and value, service good, excellent view!
Nice view of harbor. Friendly staff and a good menu. Food was good but not great. Portions were small for price. One more shrimp or one more scallop would have been better. Swordfish was a bit dry. Veggies were very good.
I organized a 77th birthday party for a Saturday for 14 people. The process was great and they were so patient with me and my changes and desires. They let me bring a cake and stored it for us. They had the table set up hours earlier then we were expected and allowed me to put up decorations. They had 2 waiters assigned to us and they never skipped a beat. All meals were service at the same time. The food portions were huge and the chef came out personally to see how we liked everything. The views were spectacular. I cannot recommend this restaurant more highly.
The entire experience was great - celebrating birthdays. Would recommend highly
service was unimpressive but food was great.
dont like the terms of credit card on booking table and not having a guest show and being charged for them not showing. it wasnt busy and not like it was a wedding reception!
The flavors of the food just wasn’t there.
I had the scallops with the risotto and spinach which was very good but felt that four scallops for thirty six dollars was abs but too much. Our waiter was a tentative but was missing at the time to pay check long wait and the manager was very friendly.
The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. We had a wonderful time.
The service was EXCELLENT,the atmosphere so pleasant I will DEFINITELY BE RETURNING
Great quality food and variety on the menu. A little pricey but food was worth it. Kinda quite the night we took 9 people there but the government shutdown might have had something to do with that. Donna's service was perfect and very attentive. Great evening.
I have come here several times. It is one of my 2 favorite restaurants at the Harbor. Food is excellent quality and gluten free with great flavor. The Chef does a wonderful job each visit. The staff is always polite and courteous. Waiter was considerate not to bring me bread since I am gluten free. He understood my gluten issue. Enjoyable!!!
My friends and I were trying to find a place to eat during MAGFest weekend. All corners of Inner Harbor were packed with people. We went on Open Table to see if anything was available for a party of 5 within walking distance. McLoone's popped up! We had never heard of this place before, but all five of us had a delicious meal. They start you off with a delicious bread and pesto dip appetizer. I highly recommend their crab dip! Excellent service, great seafood, great ambiance. We were able to hear each other without shouting over the music/other people in the restaurant. We will most definitely be back next month! :)
We went there for New Year's Eve dinner which is not necessarily the best time to visit a restaurant for the first time. It was a fixed price 4 course menu, which was fine, and the food was generally fairly good. Our sever was too pushy to order the courses and when we asked for more time, he basically then ignored us requiring that we ask him back for whatever was needed, bread, the free champagne on the menu, ultimately our subsequent courses, etc. The tip was fixed on the bill so we understood why things were as they were after the fact. These kind of events can be special if well handled by the restaurant. This one could have done a better job.
We happened to hit this restaurant on New Years Eve, where a special menu was in place at a cost of $70 per person. We decided to stay and give it a shot.
Most of the food was very good, starting with the Calamari Appetizer, Corn Chowder, The Seafood Sampler and the Filet Mignon. The Cheesecake and Apple Tart were marginal.
Service was just ok, as our waitress was pretty distracted by the very large party that was right next to our table.
Upon completion of our night, the $70 per person price tag was pretty steep even with the complimentary glass of Champagne.
Expensive but the wait staff was outstanding. Would have liked to see management on the floor as every worker was polite and quick to help.
Waitress was nice but not as attentive as we’d hoped. We made 10:30am reservations for brunch but wasn’t seated until 10:50am because they were still putting the food out
Everything was delicious but trust me, get the crab claws. I’ll go back just for that dish.
