It's a big ocean...someone has to embrace it.
Can’t beat the view, the service and the seafood Cobb salad
Great ocean view
The service was excellent. Our waitress was so friendly and attentive. We were under the tent with an amazing view of the ocean.
Great day good food awesome service
Phenomenal service. Seafood was very fresh!
Waiter and bartender were fantastic! Sang happy bday to my friend
Very disappointed. First and foremost, we believed that it would be outdoor seating. Well that's not what we got. How is that possible in the age of Covid? So frustrating and disrespectful that this establishment would trick people to believe they would be seated outside. Secondly, our reservations were at 3:00 pm. We understood that to be dinner. And just because they seated us earlier is not a reason to force us to order off of the lunch menu. Very disturbing. Plus, I wanted beurre blanc sauce. For some reason, the kitchen didn't have that available after 3:00? Really?? The stuffed flounder was not even close to what it should be. We've never had such a terrible experience. It's time for you to rethink your operation. Seriously!! We dine out on a regular basis and thus have experience. This is truly subpar. The only thing you have going for you is the view of the ocean. Don't think you can screw that up.
Terrific food. Great view of the ocean. Food was amazing! Biggest shrimp ever!
My entree was delicious, but my wife's risotto was little bland. The restaurant did a very good job on social distancing. Service was great too.
In tough times they gave a great , safe and enjoyable experience
The dining experience was excellent. Our waitress Ally was very attentive and kind. The outdoor only Covid dining experience felt very “normal” due to how the staff treated guests.
The service and the food were outstanding. I would highly recommend everything!
Our absolute favorite restaurant on the Jersey Shore with a marvelous ocean view. Darryl the GM runs the place flawlessly making every single customer feel special. The service is outstanding and the food delicious with great portion size. I tell everyone Rooney's is the place to be !
Me and my wife come here a couple times a year, especially during summer. Appetizer was the calamari, Salad was different color beats with walnuts over arugula. For our dinner we had a 2 pound lobster which was absolutely delicious the best you can find anywhere. Some people say it’s expensive but it’s worth every cent. I promise you you will not be disappointed in the Lobster.It’s a great place to have a lunch, dinner or just chill with there special drinks.
Love it, with the ocean etc, so fun to get out and feel safe
Had a great time celebrating my wife birthday at Rooney's. The food was delicious, service was suburb, and the ambience/view was amazing.
Highly recommend a visit you will not be disappointed!!!
Great food, great atmosphere. Highly recommended.
Rooney’s never disappoints. In this trying time for them they still manage to get it absolutely right! If you have a reservation, and I’ve been 4 times already, you don’t wait more than a few minutes for the table. Food and drinks great as always and service...terrific.
Great place - best artichoke I have ever eaten - I’m a real fan of them. Food was so yummy.
Great food. Nice ocean views. Great service
Our waitress Patti was wonderful!!
Epic meal always and great service.
food very good and plentiful service was very good
The food was phenomenal ! I also enjoyed how they did their menu - scan it with your phone camera . Our server was amazing ! Was able to answer all our questions
I love seafood so this is the place to eat. I had the seafood Cobb salad with crab meat and shrimp. The tuna bruschetta was delicious as was the grilled oysters. The servers were wonderful even under these extraordinary circumstances. I commend them for making my dining experience memorable.
Excellent ocean view accompanied with wonderful Seafood lunch and exceptional service make Rooney’s my favorite lunch outdoor social distancing on the Jersey Shore !
Seated next to Grab and Go Bar. Many People standing there to order were not wearing masks and standing within 2 feet of the table. No one asked them to put on a mask. Food and service were great but that particular seating is not
Beautiful table on the permanent patio, gorgeous day, leisurely lunch with a very special 90+ year old family member! Our server, Kim, was so very pleasant!! Would love to have her again !!
Great place. Food was awesome and the ambiance was indicative of what you look for in a shore experience.
The service was excellent and the seafood was perfectly seasoned. I had 6 in my party and all the dishes were good. I was seated within 5 minutes of my reservation time.
From start to finish everything was perfect. Our waitress Mia went above and beyond for us , we will be back.
Staff was very friendly and set up overlooking ocean was beautiful. Tables were spaced appropriately for social distancing. We had great food, drinks and ambience for a girls night out !!
Rooney’s was very organized and made us all feel safe without being overbearing. You could see the effort they are putting into sanitizing and distancing which is something not every shore restaurant has mastered. The food was delicious and Steve was an amazing server... service, patience and personality! The food runners were also great and more attentive than your typical runners.
As always, Rooney’s come shining through! Our server, Natalie, was amazing. You really can’t beat the atmosphere and all of the precautions that they take to keep everyone safe!
Rooney’s never disappoints. Beautiful atmosphere and delicious food! Staff accommodating and friendly!!
In spite of the pandemic Rooney's was special to us on our 47th Anniversary. Our waitress was very helpful showing me how to use my phone to see the menu. The food and service were very nice. We had no concerns about our safety, the waitresses wore masks at all times. The social distancing was appropriate. A very nice experience. We'll be back.
First time dining out during pandemic and it was a great experience. Arrived around 3p for a 4p reservation. Got drinks at the bar and sat under the large tent. Very relaxing. Then was seated for dinner just along the side walk which we enjoyed. The weather held out and we had a wonderful time. Food is always tasty, but I do feel like prices increased since last year.
We have been to Rooneys plenty of time. We drive from Brooklyn just to eat there. Food is great and the staff is awesome.
We were taken on time and everything was great
Our waitress Andrea was fantastic !
My wife’s birthday and her first time To a restaurant since March
Great experience, have eaten there before, we will be back
As usual. good food. lovely view, great service. Can't wait to go again
