Great server wonderful
Our group of six was delighted with the chance to enjoy delicious food, enjoy the sea air breezes and view of the ocean beach, and have wonderful service. The ambience was great! Can't wait for our next visit.
Made a reservation, but when I arrived, the wait time was to be 15-20 minutes.
What good is a reservation?
As great as every single time!!
Spectacular. Food was perfect. Delicious in every way. Service was superb as well! And a killer view topped off the night
Perfect night. Great food and great view of the moonlit ocean. Thank you for this experience
Amazing setting best of everything !
Took our request for the patio and made the bday girl happy
Great view, great service, good food. Overall, worth the $$$.
It was a beautiful day to sit outside a few weeks after our wedding. Food and service were perfect. We really enjoyed the atmosphere and overall experience, and hadn’t been there in a few years!!
Food good, service very good. Ambiance perfection!
The outdoor hostess was so disorganized. When we were called to be seated, inside hostess was disorganized, as well. We waited quite a while to be seated, along with a few other parties. Really poor management, clumsy, lots of confusion. Food was very good, can’t beat the view and our server was fine.
Love this place! The food and view is amazing. Will be returning again.
The seafood was fresh and well presented. Lobster tails were cooked perfectly. By all means try the Key Lime pie.
The only thing better than the food was the SERVICE!
Delicious food, great vies of the ocean and friendly staff
Though it was a bleak day with threat of rain, we were able to sit outside. The staff was accommodating by turning on overhead heaters and made our dining experience comfortable.
Even the weather wasn't perfect, the view of the ocean was breathtaking and tge food was wonderfully prepared. A very enjoyable dinner.
Loved Rooney’s. We had heard about it and then a friend of mine gave me a gift card and encouraged us to us. We were not disappointed and will be back.
Music was extremely loud. Wasn't appropriate for a resturant... more conducive to a bar setting.
Food was delicious and the view spectacular! Very good service.
Outdoor seating is great with a view of beach. Parking an added bonus.
Great setting for lunch, right on the beach. Always excellent service.
Food was good. It was a beautiful night and we sat outside. Server was great. She was friendly and helpful. Our table had salmon, tuna, crab cakes and the pork chop. Everyone loved their meals. I would definitely go back
The food, drinks, and ambience was amazing! The waiter was excellent.
It was nice to eat outdoors right across from the ocean. Our waiter was very attentive and everything was just how we ordered it. We loved how you can choose a fish, how it’s prepared, the sauce and side. The halibut tasted fresh and delicious. My husband ordered the Bronzino. The portion of the bronzino was a little skimpy compared to the thick piece of halibut. Whenever ordering Bronzino, we usually get a whole fish even if filleted as it is not a big fish. But overall the portions were good.
Party of 4, not our first time at Rooney's. One plate had to be sent back 2 times since it was not cooked to the temperature ordered. After 3rd time plate was delivered to the table the fish was very dry and the rest of us had finished our meals. Manager was very apologetic took one meal off our check. First time this ever happened at Rooney's!
We had a wonderful time food was excellent and the service was excellent.
Always special with my sister
Best meal in town! Never disapointed. The fish board is delious and a great value.
Great food on the beach. Rooney’s is always good.
Love this place. Nice location looking out at the ocean. Great views on the patio. Food is also very good I never had a bad meal at Rooney's. The Drinks are wonderful try the White Sangria or perhaps a Bloody Mary ( with fresh shrimp in it - hanging on the glass). They also don't rush you out the door. They let you stay and enjoy your time. Service is always good. This is a favorite place of my family and friends. There is also ample (free) parking for people at the restaurant which is becoming more rare at the shore. So enjoy the parking as well. Great place to meet folks for drinks after work, Brunch or a nice lunch or dinner.
The food is very good and the open ambience is lovely overlooking the ocean. All 4 of us enjoyed our food!
Always a great restaurant, superb food and service
The restaurant was 20 minutes behind schedule on our arrival with reservations. Food is always very good
Great place for any occasion or date night. Food, service and view is wonderful!
Outstanding food, atmosphere and service.
Always great food & even better outside ocean front view can’t beat it!!!
