It was our first time going to the restaurant. The view of the ocean is fabulous and so is the ambience. The food was well presented and delicious. The waitress was always going to the table asking if we needed anything. My cosmopolitan drinks were the best I ever Had. We were very impressed and we cannot wait for the next time. Thank you!
We had a great meal the chopped salad with grilled salmon is our favorite. Our waiter, Chris was excellent.
It was my husband’s birthday. Our server was fantastic. Loved the food too!
Rooney's is a special place for many reasons, the lobster bisque is the best!
Lov Rooney’s 😊
Had a great dinner! Food was delicious, and nice portions. My husband felt his fish was not prepared how he had asked, and it was immediately taken back and fixed-with a smile! One of our favorite restaurants!!
Was a treat to have dinner t Rooney's looking at the ocean.
Excellent service, staff was in point. Food was great
This place never dissapoints . With the atmosphere they provide , they could get away with less than stellar food , but absolutely everything on the menu is first class and served with pride . Don't miss it !

Great food great time!!
Outstanding meal. Great seating , good service. Food was superb. Prices are high, but it was worth it.
Delicious food, drinks and great service! The ambience and view were spectacular looking out the big windows at the shoreline. We will definitely be back!
I have been going to Rooney's since it was in Sea Bright and I have never gotten a meal there that I did not enjoy. The food and service is on the top of my list. HIGHLY RECOMENDED!!!
Beautiful views..good food
Rooney's is always a great experience with the best view of the ocean.
As usual, great food, service and atmosphere. Highly recommended.
Enjoy the food and the beautiful view!
Well worth it!! The food and drinks were amazing. Staff was friendly and attentive. Restaurant has an amazing view of the ocean. Definitely recommended!!
Food and service was very good, but not really outside seating. Beautiful inside all glass enclosed
as always, food was great, and prepared to perfection. From Halibut to pork chop to appetizers and dessert. All good. Nice they have cork fee if you want to bring your own bottle. Would say a bit overpriced for the value but you do get outstanding ocean front views. Must go place when weather warms up and outside seating is possible. We went with another couple this past Tuesday and was perfect, not crowded and as mentioned, food was outstanding.
Amazing Food, view and service. Could not have asked for a better “1st time out since Corona” Dining experience
My Review is strictly based on the taste of the food. My wife had the Red Snapper special and I had the Market Catch which was Halibut. Both fish dishes were unseasoned although i had mine lightly blackened and both were over cooked. The Fish was tough dry . We were very disappointed. The waitress was extremely nice and very attentive but the Entrées just weren't prepared or cooked very well. We may not go back for a while as this is the second consecutive time there has been an issue with the entrée
One word awesome !!
Above average shore restaurant with a view. Menu selection was good
Overall our experience was very good. Due to the pandemic Easter Sunday was the first time my wife and went to a restaurant since September 2020. We sat indoors as my wife thought it was too cold to sit outside under heaters, but we had received our second COVID-19 vaccine 9 days earlier. We did notice most guests did not wear masks while seated, nor did I once our meal was delivered, but the staff did wear masks. My wife and I are "Southerners," and she ordered the Shrimp Fra Diavolo (pasta), which was very tasty with medium spice. I ordered Low Country Creole (I grew up in the low country of Georgia), and it was VERY bland, which definitely IS NOT "creole" style; however the accompanying jalapeño cornbread was very tasty and sweet. The appetizers (calamari and shrimp cocktail) and dessert (lava cake and key lime pie) were tasty.
I love Rooney's. I have always gotten a delicious meal. However. on Easter , the portions for the seafood platter was so small, and the price was outrageous for the portion, my meal was outstanding. the waitress was phenomenal and the atmosphere was superb. I'll always go back. I love the drinks of course 🤗
Very nice Easter lunch with the family. Will be back:)
Love the ocean view from almost any table. Nice ambiance and good service. Food is great and prices are reasonable.
Need more landlubber options.y husband doesn't like seafood
Second time and there will be a third. Server Kurt was awesome with selections and pace of drinks and dinner.
Made for a great Easter Eve event.
Delicious food and great ambiance!
Always good food, friendly service, and very comfortable with their Covid protocols.
Best view on the Jersy Shore, while dining.
This was mom & dad’s favorite place to dine. My mom passed in July and Rooney’s remains his favorite restaurant for its atmosphere , good food and safety comfort level!
Amazing experience and absolutely lovely staff who went above and beyond when I wasn’t feeling well.
