Would not go again. We were seated 40 minutes after our reservation and one entree was never put in resulting in our 12 year old receiving his meal after everyone was done eating. Waitress did not know if kids meals were nut free and didn’t have any sense of urgency finding out when we were concerned about an allergy. No one seemed concerned that we experienced these issues.

We went for Thanksgiving buffet, and was pleasantly surprised. The food was very good. There was a nice variety, and the food was constantly being replenished. While it was buffet, we had a very polite and attentive server, in fact there was always someone around tending to all tables, clearing plates as necessary. The atmosphere was very pleasant. We were very glad we spent our Thanksgiving at McLoone’s Pier House.

The place was nice, very crowded at our table of 8, so we would probably like a bigger table next time. We had to shuffle around plates quite a bit to make room to eat our different courses. Waiter was very nice and efficient, just had to remind him a few times for the kid's drinks and kid menus. Food was amazing and we had enough to take some doggy bags home! We would be back for sure. Maybe not with the kids...the kids' food was not very good, the mac n cheese said it was Kraft on the menu, but it was not. It was large gluten free corn pasta and a cheese sauce that had no flavor. My kids didn't eat it and so when I tasted it, I understood why.

We requested a table with a view for our special evening, and were seated at a table as far away from the water as could be... and the table rocked! Appetizers, soup, and entree came out within 5 minutes of each other, making by the tiny table cramped and leaving us feeling rushed. Our waiter couldn’t have been better but the food running was out of control! Create some ambiance, please!

I was at the West Orange NJ location and really enjoyed it. I must say this this location is quite different. When i 1st walked in, the rug smelled of a bad odor. If we weren't waiting for people to get there, we would have left. That bad. A few of our co-workers actually left and went to another restaurant nearby. The food was average at best. The water tasted funny. Iced tea didn't taste perfect was better. One person had the Caesar salad and he said it felt frozen. I had the avocado crab salad and it was good. The waiter was very quiet and monotone and didn't really seem like he wanted to be there. The only real good thing that i can say is that the manager was very nice and helpful. 1 of our people had a nut allergy and he made sure to make certain she didn't have a salad dressing with nuts. The manager was very nice but the smell from the rugs in the restaurant weren't.

We visited McLoone's for our daughter's birthday last year and have made it a "go to" restaurant for our seafood enjoyment. We were very pleased with the manager's attentiveness to guests, and staff were very pleasant and responsive. We'll see you again soon!

Wish that the soup course had come prior to the entree. But the food was good. Crab soup had sufficient crab. The pesto served with the bread was excellent. Portions were adequate for the price. A good value.

While the overall dining experience was good, the trip to the bathroom was not. Ladies bathroom was a mess. Management’s decision to remove paper towel does not automatically equal cleaner rest rooms.

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!!!

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.
