Excellent food. Excellent service. Never disappointed
Always great food. Love the band Friday nights.
Excellent dinner as usual!
Valentine’s Day was really nice at Rooney’s. Piano player and they don’t do a limited menu. The full menu was available with some specials. Great evening. Would definitely go back.
Service was great, but the food was just ok. I expected more . We ordered crab cakes and the mahi special. Mahi was overcooked and bland. Crab cakes were good but could have been more flavorful too.
That sat is along a window in a 4 top which allowed us to sit close and enjoy the evening. Foods was great, service was even better. Not rushed and nice food
Delicious food and no waiting on a busy Valentines night. We were sat immediately despite being about 15 mins late for our reservations and greeted by our waiter immediately. Food was perfect!
Good view. Did not get rushed. Food was good. Great drinks.
Great food, great service & Nice beach conditions,
Valentine’s Day dinner was made special by great food, great
service and great ambiance on a night when large crowds usually tend to lessen the dining experience. Hats off to management that despite being at capacity, our server Chris was super attentive and the specials were awesome - I had Scallops done southern style and my wife had crab stuffed mahi on risotto. The Scallops dish was honestly one of the best seafood dishes I’ve ever had, served on a perfectly crisp grits cake, nicely spiced tender scallops and southern greens so good I could have eaten a full plate of them, all laid on top of a deliciously creamy but light sauce. When you’re this good on a hugely busy special holiday, you know you’re top notch.
Good Fish dishes.
Paella was intensely smokey due to high ratio of chorizo sausage.
We love Rooney's. Always a favorite. Good food. Beautiful view. Friendly service.
Excellent food. Great views of the ocean!Excellent seevice!Highly recommend Rooney’s
I had a great meal
Our appetizers were great. The stuffed lobster was super dry unfortunately.
A few of us were catching up- everyone was very patient- let us sit for a few hours- always a pleasure
The setting was unbelievable, oceanfront. We had peel and eat shrimp, whole artichoke, two cups chowder and key lime pie. Everything perfectly prepared. Highly recommend.
Everything was fantastic - the ambiance, the food, the staff!
Good food and great service! Wonderful ocean views
Food was awesome. Our wait staff was kind, courteous and attentive. This restaurant is a bit pricey, but well worth it . Look forward to coming back during the summer months.
Excellent service and food. Lovely location. We will definitely return
Sunday brunch is perfect and includes a raw bar and mimosas with $5 bloody Mary’s! You can’t beat the view of the ocean ! Highly recommend’
Excellent food, cocktails,service can’t wait to try it again in the spring and of course in the summer
A favorite of ours, great food on this cold winter night..not super busy on the dining side.,but the music from the bar was blasting. Someone must have said something, cause eventually they lowered it, but . . .the salmon was delicious, the shrimp were fresh and the oysters fabulous!
The only thing they didn’t acknowledge the birthday!
Food is usually very good including this visit. Nice and dependable. Need some blinds on the upper windows as the glare can be brutal
Very pleasant in every way - excellent service, delicious food and attractive surroundings
Service was outstanding, assortment of menu choices and preparation excellent. Main negative was the price for wine by the glass was surprisingly inflated. compared with my experience.
Celebrated a special birthday with friends.none of us had had brunch here before . We all enjoyed it very much. Would come again just for a casual Sunday...great view of the ocean. Would like to see some piano music added or jazz.
Rooney's has always been my favorite seafood restaurant. However, this evening, my lobster tail, my daughter's halibut, and my husband's salmon burger were all slightly overcooked. For the cost of the food, our expectations were not met. My daughter was offered another meal, but we decided to make do with what we had. We will take a break from this restaurant and try it again at a much later date.
Great New Years Day dinner & excellent service! Loved our cinnamon bread pudding for dessert!
New Years brunch
New Years's brunch. Live jazz in background. Nice selection of breakfast/lunch/raw bar items. Likely to do again next year. Great location.
Nice New Years brunch
I’m still f’ing here! It’s New Years Eve!!
Excellent meal and great service tonight.
Great place for ocean front dining. The food was surprisingly delicious. Nice presentation with oysters. Pleasantly surprised with the entire dining experience. Would go back!
This is our 3rd trip to Rooney’s. We brought guests and they enjoyed it immensely... the food was DELICIOUS, and was served nice and hot. My husband had the fish special, our guests had the salmon and I had the shrimp tacos. The only disappointment was the noise level. It was 12:30, and the music was very loud rock and roll. It was very difficult to hear and talk over it. It definitely did not match the ambiance, food and price. When we asked they did lower the music however it was still inappropriate for an afternoon lunch
Angry lobster is off the charts as were the oysters. Great staff very attentive service
