It's a big ocean...someone has to embrace it.
I have always wanted to try this restaurant and finally visited it. The food was great along with the atmosphere. The service was also very good.
We went on a weekday afternoon in August. The weather was perfect, the staff delightful, and the food was excellent!
Service is really bad and very loud food wasn’t as good
Only problem was that their system never logged in the reservation made through Open Table, which delayed seating. After that, though, everything was impeccable.
Best happy hour
Fantastic waitress. Great food. Perfect table in the glass room overlooking the ocean. Could not be happier
Excellent Sunday evening dining at the beach. Excellent atmosphere, very crowded, very good food, great service. All around great meal. Would recommend it to anyone
Awesome food. Emerald Cove Oysters, Crab stuffed Mahi, Pan seared Branzino. All prepared and presented perfectly.
While sometimes the service isn’t the best, this time it was superlative!
I love Rooney’s. One of my favorites.
Food is excellent views are great.
Waited for a table, even though I had a reservation. Extremely loud, waitresses leaning and standing around instead of providing customer service!
You can not find this kind of view and atmosphere at too many places! Perfect shore spot for dinner with good friends!
Family Wedding Anniversary
Disappointed that the restaurant did not give us an outside table as I had requested
Rooney’s was a great experience. My fiancé and I came for lunch and ordered the crab cakes, lobster salad, and mussels. All of the food was fresh, tasty, and amazing. We tried the white sangria and it was fruity and fresh without being overly sweet. Not to mention a wonderful view of the beach and ocean with the opportunity to sit outside with fans. Definitely coming back!
it was a beautiful night to dine outside, and the food, atmosphere ans service matched
Food was outstanding, as usual. Please add the burger to your dinner options.
Loved the room, the view is fantastic and we went on a stormy day! However, the price points are high, especially since many options are a la carte. (my pasta entrée as an example). While the Caesar salad was delicious, I think menu options should include a house salad. Because of the overall price, the restaurant becomes more of a special occasion restaurant and not my weekend go-to restaurant. In the end, you miss out on more-frequent business. Just an observation. Yes, I would recommend this restaurant!
Excellent food & service
A lovely place for a special birthday lunch ... fantastic food, lovely view (even on an overcast day) ... great service.
The ambience and service were great.
The calamari delicious
My daughters filet mignon delicious
My MAHI MAHI was fishy and dry.
Otherwise loved it.
Will come back
Food & ambiance were perfect. Service was outstanding! We are definitely planning another visit
Everything was excellent !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nice little spot in Long Branch. Food was good. Cocktails were good. Service was good. Atmosphere was great. A bit pricey but that is to be expected on the waterfront. Recommend the seafood cocktail and oysters. Specialty cocktails were small and watered down for the price tag so I'd stick with beer and wine. But overall it's a great night out or fun place for lunch.
It was our first date and the setting could not be more perfect. We enjoyed that patio outside with the ocean breeze and terrific food. Crab cakes were delicious. Our waItress (Nicky) was very attentive and knowledgeable. She helped make our night a memorable one. We will be back again and will recommend Rooney''s to our friends.
They should not have such loud music. It ruins the environment next to the ocean
Was a perfect evening
Great experience!! Will definitely be back
Great ocean front location. Food was not great. Drinks were so so. Disappointed. May go back in the off-season for Sunday brunch.
Food was delicious! Very well managed and decorated. Will be back, as always! Love Rooney’s for lunch and dinner!
The lobster tail was tough and did not compare with local competition.
Trout was dry and didn't taste like fresh trout.
Tonight, we celebrated! It was Amy's Birthday! We decided to head out for some lobster and of course chicken fingers for the kids! The ambiance, staff and food were all on point! So glad to enjoy a great family dinner here!
Familiar restaurant to celebrate a birthday and sat outside on a beautiful evening—menu is limited to seafood so don’t expect much variety if you have kids your other picky eaters looking to feed for evening dinner menu. Overall good experience though!
Fantastic service, our waitress went above and beyond to make our dinner perfect. The 3lb lobster was prepared perfectly and was delicious, I'm still craving the jalapeno cornbread. Superb!!!
Waiter was not attentive to the table, the main course had no flavor, rice was not fully cooked...
Cocktails were weak, hardly any liquor
Good food. Great view of the ocean. Relaxing place to dine
Our service was great, they gave us plenty time throughout dinner to have a nice relaxed time & not feel rushed. Our food was spot on picture perfect & bursting with well paired flavors . Hand crafted cocktails were tasty. The reaturant was nicely decorated with ocean views. Definitely a must return to spot.
The food is amazing - portions are big and beautifully plated!
Great location and views of the ocean - makes it festive and fun.
Service was over the top - wonderful. And so convenient having a parking lot and parking attendants.
We should go every night we stay down the shore!
Loved it here! First time and will definitely be coming back!
One the best views at a restaurant at the shore. Food is good and service has been prompt and courteous everytime I have dined. Overall, an ecellwnt choice if you're in the area and want a shore experience.
