My experience was good for my first time. The only downside was I had a large party with only one waitress. I would have preferred to have one additional person. I will be returning.

Once we got past the hostess who was missing for 5 min and disinterested, the service improved. The waiter was good and the seafood platter was very good. We really enjoyed the jerked shrimp and blackened salmon. The crab cakes were delicious. I can’t say anything was best I ever had but it was delicious and totally acceptable. The lump crab dip appetizer was enjoyable. The view of pier and was very nice. Noise level decent. Talking was easy. Would definitely go again.

Business dinner while in town for a conference. Excellent lobster tail. My colleague got the seafood platter and she said it was fabulous. We ate in the bar and the service was perfect.

Food was good, but the service could really be improved. Staff seemed like they didn’t want to be there.

Great service. Lovely outdoor dining overlooking the water. Ordered Salmon dinner. Good but very salty. The bathroom was awful. I dined early in the evening so there really should not be an excuse for the condition. Made the hostess aware when I left.

Dining at McLoone's Pier House was a great experience. The entire staff made us feel special, especially the manager, Jarrad. Would definitely recommend dining there and would return when in the DC area.

I had dinner for galentines day (gals Valentine’s Day) and was very disappointed. Our meals was wrong when our order came out. My friend order her steak well done it came out medium well. I upgraded my meal for the filet but the brought me out sirloin. So will me Friend ate her steak I sat and watched and our server simply said it was the kitchens fault but didn’t offer anything for me to snack on while I watch my friend eat for 10 -15 Min. Or drinks orders were also served at different times even though we ordered them both together. Again my friend received her drink first while mine came about 10 min later. Drinks were nice and strong but the steaks were not tasty. The mash potatoes were great. Also the asparagus was supppsed to be wrapped in pursutto but was not. Very disappointed in our meals stick to the happy hour and the regular menu I will not recommend going during a special day or when it’s prefix menu.

I went here about 2 yrs ago for an engagement proposal and ate outside, I didn't remember the food being as good as it was this time around. I got the seafood platter and everything was cooked deliciously for my date and I! We were able to have a quiet conversation and our waitress gave a good recommendation on drinks and kept checking in on us. Very great staff as I remember, and the ambiance inside was just as nice as outside. I'm glad we chose this place and I plan to recommend it to others.
