We had a Delicious Meal and the service was excellent
Perfect dinner and wonderful service. A beach evening, what could be better.
As great as always!
Great view from perfect table for our 31st Anniversary! Server was so friendly and we felt very special.
Wow!..Ambiance we sat facing the ocean. Will be going back ....Make reservations...
Drinks and apps were good. Entrees were not good. Fish was dry and pasta was stuck together and gummy.
Food and ambiance was great
The ambiance and service were great, but the food not so much. My pasta and broccoli were mushy, baby food mushy and overpriced ($34 for pasta with broccoli on spicy tomatoe sauce)
To be fair, I am a vegetarian so I can’t talk about their sea food/meat menu. I would say if you are a vegetarian go there for drinks and eat somewhere else.
Great ambience!! Food was good. Service was ok. I felt our server could have been a little friendlier but it is what it is.
Beautiful setting and good service and food. Nothing extraordinary but reasonable good quality and value
The scenery was gorgeous and the food was good overall. I actually enjoyed my entree over the appetizers. My table ordered oysters(my mom gave them a thumbs up), mussels and calamari. The mussels were okay and calamari wasn’t bad. The lobster bisque was very thick and tasted more like a roux with flour than rich creamy velvety texture and taste what I am used to for a lobster bisque. I requested to have it removed on the bill, which they did without hesitation. They made up for their apps with my entree. My branzino and Au Gratin potatoes was delish! They could’ve had an off day, so I would go again and try different apps. The waitress wasn’t I really friendly, but was professional. The manager and hostess delivered great customer service in the first few minutes of our arrival.
All good, waiter being trained - but that worked fine. As always, it was a great night!
The seafood was great. Loved the delicious bread too!
I forgot how much I love this restaurant. The salmon was excellent and I had a delicious wedge salad. And you can’t beat the view
Food was well prepared & very tasty, atmosphere was very pleasant with a great ocean view, and the reservation time was honored very timely.
Rooney's never disappoints. The service, the food, A+++
Great views and nice atmosphere! Nice menu, not extensive. Table service was a little hit and miss, apps received before drinks, tried to take my friends lunch without her having finished, slow coffee service. Second time here and would definitely go again. Great parking and easy reservations.
Our waitress was amazing and funny she made us feel very comfortable. The food was quick and hot. We got concerned when we ordered appetizers and it came out like 5 minutes later but it was hot and not over cooked. The drinks were made to perfection and for the sizes of the Bloody Mary and the sangria the price was definitely right.
Fresh fish, good service. Love the white sangria.
Great place for a wonderful view and great food and drinks...highly recommended!!
Very good restaurant to have a dinner with family
Dining experience was magnificent! Spacious, fine fresh food, great atmosphere and impeccable service.
Good job, Rooney’s. Keep up the stellar dining experience!
The ocean-side setting of Rooney's is beautiful. Our server had a great personality and was very helpful. Most importantly the food was delicious!
Lunchtime - a cool day, got there 12"15 not crowded, yet, everything perfect..food, service. etc. Sat under the roof just beyond the bar, by the time we left not a seat to be had, even in the outside bar. It just keeps getting better and better..
Not as good as it always was
Pleasure to dine there
We regularly eat at Rooney’s because: the food is well prepared and good quality; the ambience is inviting with wonderful ocean views; the staff is friendly…like family to us. Great place for good seafood, tasty sides and salads and well-crafted drinks.
Great menu, delicious food, super service. I wish we sat at a table with a better view of the ocean, instead of the parking lot.
The restaurant is in a perfect location and has its own parking lot, which is definitely a perk since it's situated in a very busy area. Service was efficient and pleasant. The food was good but nothing spectacular. We had 2 appetizers, burrata mozzarella salad and the tuna crustini type appetizer. Both were ok and the tuna was very tender but both dishes needed a bit more flavor. For dinner we had the pork chop which was juicy and had a side of delicious Brussel sprouts and mashed potatoes. The pork chop again was missing a bit of flavor. Overall this is a very nice ocean front restaurant and I would consider returning.
Rooney’s is hands down my favorite beach restaurant! I go to long branch for the day often during the summer and I always have lunch at Rooney’s! It’s my favorite. The seafood Cobb salad is a must!
No AC sweating all dinner
This is one of our favorite restaurants, our waitress totally messed up our order after waiting over an hour for the food. We left I had a half of a chopped salad on a bread dish, which it was how it was served. We will be back , but we’ll refuse her, we had her before with equally bad service.
The food was amazing. Our server was very attentive
Great food! Excellent service.
Always good food and service
We always can count on a good meal and good service when we go to Rooney's. Whether it is for a quick snack or a full meal, we are always satisfied!
Excellent service!!! Great food!!! Great Ocean View and plenty of parking!!!
I had the Halibut which was excellent. Kris was our server and he was also excellent. He was very attentive and really customer service oriented. Of course the view from the restaurant is lovely.
