I was very pleased with the meal , service and atmosphere at the restaurant. We met up with another couple and for both of us this was the first time dining there. Everyone has seafood and everyone was raving on the preparation of the food. I would definitely recommend this and we will be going back again.

We were seated and sat for 15 minutes with no service. No one came to take our order or bring us drink. Not even water! We finally got up and went to another restaurant. Do not go to this place!!! Not poor service, no service!!!

Our waitress Kewanna was amazing, She went above and beyond to make the night enjoyable. It was my boyfriends birthday dinner and our first visit to McLoone's. The food was tasty.

We were celebrating my husband’s birthday, and had a wonderful experience. Our server, Raena, was excellent! She was very personable as well as timely and professional. The food was delicious! We had oysters on the half shell and fried oysters for appetizers. My husband had the stuffed shrimp: my son had the tostados w/ahi tuna; and I had the 8 oz filet mignon with grilled asparagus and sautéed spinach. Everything was seasoned and cooked to perfection. Every time I’ve eaten at McLoone’s, I have had no complaints.

Four co-workers and I went to McLoone's for dinner. We were greeted and seated promptly and were visited by a friendly waiter shortly thereafter. He took our order for drinks and for food. The drinks took over 15 minutes to arrive, and one of them was wrong. The waiter promptly agreed to have the drink re-made and brought it out shortly.

We had ordered appetizers, which were slow in arriving. The waiter brought four plates and sets of silverware for the five of us, and left to get another set, but didn't bring the fifth plate for yet another 15 minutes.

The food arrived about 20 minutes after the appetizers. The food was very good. We'd have enjoyed it more if the waiter visited the table a little more frequently to check on refills for water and drinks.

We were seated outside on the riverfront. It was a great setting and I highly recommend it. Keep in mind the restaurant serves all drinks in plastic cups if you're seated outside, if that is an important factor one way or the other.

Overall, the experience was OK. If you're looking for a more upscale casual place to dine, and you aren't in a hurry, you'll enjoy it.

Fortunately we were able to sit outside. The weather was great and it was comfortable. At first they wanted to sit us inside. If so we would have left as it was crowded and extremely noisy crowd..
The food was excellent, the service was so-so.

Terrible service. Slow, wrong orders, didn't clean up spilled drink from floor or chair - just left it to soak in. Go anywhere else.

Raw oysters were tasty. Hummus was inedible. Calamari mediocre. Gumbo was the worst I've ever had. Impressively bad experience.

Great views of the harbor, food was good. The beer list was out of 1995, the craft beer revolution hasn’t arrived at McLoones yet.

Everything was wonderful. We requested outdoor seating and were accommodated. It was very busy but our waitress could not have been more attentive. The food was delicious, seasoned nicely, and decent sized portions (actually, pretty large, no one could finish!). We will definitely return!

The service was horrible. They completely botched our order. They cooked two steaks blood raw that were supposed to be medium rare. They didn’t bring a side salad before the entree. The brought it with the entree. It says kraft mac and cheese on the menu for kids, but it’s home made. Most kids are more picky and won’t eat the type of Mac and cheese. Very overrated place.

The view and the food were the best parts. The acoustics are terrible and the restaurant was so loud we couldn’t hear the person next to us speaking. The server was friendly but he had to be asked twice to bring my husbands drink. He never offered refills, the water was room temp with no ice. I will not be returning.

Service and food were outstanding on our last visit, not sure what happened on this visit. My husband's steak was overcooked to a well done stage. Everything else was fine, so we will most likely return but would hesitate on ordering another steak.

Food was decent. Nothing spectacular though. I had the crab cake which my sister enjoyed as well. My daughter said her pasta was pretty bland but mother mother stated her scallops were delicious. I would return. Great outdoor seating. Decor is somewhat dated but overall it was decent experience. It can get noisy
