We had a lovely table and the food was out of this world. Our server Patty was excellent, knowledgeable, sweet and truly Checking frequently on us. The only complaint we have is that because it is an indoor room but has the windows open throughout the day we had so many gnats at our table. The bottle of wine we chose was excellent, however in one glass my husband three gnats floating in it. Patty was sweet enough to get us a fresh glass of wine. Although the Nats could have spoiled the whole dinner, everything else outweighed that problem. Again the food was absolutely delicious!
The atmosphere was great with nice views of the ocean. The good was great tasting but the portions could be a little larger. Our waitress Alexiss was very friendly and attentive. This was for our 29th anniversary and we weren’t disappointed. Will definitely go back again
Food as always delicious. Our server Chris was great
Rooney never disappoints. The service was very good. Tables were still spaced a good distance apart. The view can't be beat!
Brunch was great, but miss the Sunday buffet! Hope it returns
I went to Rooney’s every time I want to eat good fish una good place. Is one of my preferred restaurant
Great seafood. On site ample parking. Perfect water view!

Nice ocean front restaurant and bar with heated outdoor and indoor dining. Definitely visit if you are in the area.
First time dining there. Beautiful location! Service was great. My husband raved about the burrata and Korean ribs. My salmon fish board was presented so well and delicious. A definite must visit again.

Food and ambience has always been very good. Strongly recommend this restaurant.
Great evening once again. Server Dan was excellent and gave us time to enjoy food. Seafood was great, along with service and staff.
Have had lunch here several times and food is always good and service is always exceptional!!! Location can't be beat for a warm weather lunch, right on the boardwalk in Long Branch.
The ambience, food, and service were exemplary!!!
We had an excellent lunch date at Rooney's. We ate outside and truly enjoyed our meal. Everything was extremely well prepared and thoroughly enjoyed. My wife had the fresh catch and i enjoyed a crab stuffed lobster. It's pricey but worth it.
The food and service were extraordinary!!! I have always had good experiences at Rooney's.
We were seated on time, and greeted by our waitperson in no time and given our menus. Our drink orders were taken and delivered in a timely manner. Our waitperson gave us some time to enjoy our drinks before taking our meal order, which we greatly appreciated. The rest of the meal and service went smoothly between courses. everything was delicious, which is par for the course at this establishment. Great food, efficient and friendly staff at every visit.
Our server was very good and the food came out just the way we ordered it. An excellent experience.
What an amazing experience! Food, atmosphere and service all incredible!
Food was very good. All fish dishes were fresh and cooked perfectly. Service was excellent, attentive but not intrusive. Victoria is a real gem.
Rooney's usually a wonderful experience. Tonight, however, about halfway through our meal, a table was seated - with a dog. For the rest of my meal, I watched the dog jump up and down in owners lap and bark - twice. Certainly influenced enjoyment of my evening. At end of meal I discussed with manager - who responded that there was nothing he could do.
Excellent food and service. Beautiful view of the ocean. The branzino was outstanding!
Please you need more gluten free options. Desert, bread and Appetizers. Live locally and come all the time.

Our date night at Rooney’s was perfect. Everything that we ordered was prepared perfectly, with so many flavors! Our server took great care of us without being overly attentive.
It’s been a while since we had been to Rooney’s, it was nice to see that great service and consistency are still top notch!
My favorite place
Everyone loved their food! I highly recommend the drunken lobster.
We've never had a bad expereince at Rooney's - great food, nice ambience, good service!
We had a 5:00 reservation, we arrived 45 minutes early. The hostess was so nice, she let us sit down right away, and had us seated at a wonderful corner table directly across from the beach! Th service, staff , view and food were wonderful ! We will be back, I highly recommend Rooney’s .
Rooneys on a Sunday afternoon is a tradition for my husband and me. Despite our reservation, we had a short wait but that's not to be unexpected during these times. Alexis was our server, and despite many tables was attentive and saw to our requests. The food was delicious, we started with the raw sampler, everything fresh and full of the sea. My branzino entree was perfectly grilled and the asparagus and mashed potatoes, plentiful and well seasoned. My husband had the crab cakes and they were full of crab. Two cappuccinos and a lava cake for dessert, which Darryl graciously, put on the house, to compensate for our wait. I have a broken foot in a boot and he knew the wait was uncomfortable. As always, another wonderful Sunday afternoon.
Good food. Great view. Amazing service.
