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

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.

very disapointed! expected so much more. Service was disorganized & very slow. Brunch was nothing like Mccloones in Seabright NJ. They didnt have the cold fish bar.The price was $30.00 for stale bagels, omellette station that no one knew what was happening 25 min to make one. They had oatmeal & fruit , salmon & bacon , muffins & sausage stuffing.

The ambiance was great. Our server was very nice and polite, but he was very slow and not very attentive to our needs. We notices the other staff/servers were very energetic and attentive to the tables they were assigned to.

My food was excellent, but my boyfriend ordered the ribeye steak. It was not a ribeye steak. It was more fat than meat, he had to send it back. And the roasted potatoes were huge potato logs.

We were celebrating my Boyfriend's birthday. They didn't acknowledge it and because the service was so slow, he didn't want me to bring it to our servers attention, he was ready to leave.
I may return, but not time soon.

Our negative experience started with the poor location of the table they tried to seat us at (next to a 20 top large party) when they had 3 open 4 tops (there were 4 of us) next to the windows where we wanted to sit; then went to a bottle of wine plopped on the table, without even a pour to the person that ordered it, incorrect bar order, bartender that came to our table to confront us about that ordered drink; 10 minutes after we ordered we were then told one of our entrees was no longer available. then after 2 managers came over at separate times they offered us coupons for our next trip. after we told them we live 3 hrs away, like we would ever go back after all this horrible service. the least they could have done was comped something on our bill for that night. All that being said, the steaks were pretty good, but the entire experience left a bad taste in everyone's mouth.

Our food took about an hour to come out. Tasted very good. It was just the service was really slow with the food and the drinks.
