My wife and I had dinner there July 7th, and sorry to report, the food was awful. We had visited the Red Bank location the prior week, and everything was pretty good, especially the fish tacos. Fast forward to Asbury Park, where this time I had Swordfish. I am still sleepless at night wondering what it was that I gutted through out of amazement. Best description: a tasteless overly microwaved hot mashed granular pulp. Really sad for a place with so much potential. As a throw-in, service was very slow.

The best venue for true S.O.A.P. and Jersey Blues music. Excellent menu, food and ambiance.

Drove down from Morris County for lunch and will happily go back. I went to Asbury Park as a child in its heyday and I'm happy to see after decades of tough times the area is going through a much-needed renaissance. I'm glad McLoone's is playing a part believing in this old beach resort town...

We were extremely pleased with all of the gluten free/vegan and additional modifications that the menu allows! We will be back!

weren't thrilled at all with the menu this time around (and no specials) and only 3 out of 4 of us enjoyed what we ordered.

It was ehhh...
Service was interesting. She kept asking us if we needed a refill (twice). We hadn't ordered anything yet.
The appetizer (crabcake[s]) only came with one. How is it possible that the menu is plural and we only get one? Still, it was good and i would've liked another.
The Caesar salad was water and the dressing was bland.
The place is well known for its burgers, which delivered.
Dessert tasted like any other Applebees/Houlihans/Fridays apple crisp with vanilla ice cream.
I paid 100 bucks for the meal and I wasn't happy.

We reserved a table on open table. It does not for outside tables. We were sent back and forth between inside and outside before we got seated. The steak was overdone. The vegetables and fries were cold. When I sent the fries back to get some hot ones, they reheated them! The waitress may as not have been there.
