It's a big ocean...someone has to embrace it.
We did not eat at Rooney’s unfortunately. We were seated immediately and sat for over 20 minutes with no service. One waitress said she would get our drinks and find out what was going on but came back out and didn’t say anything so we left. I called and spoke to the manager, Al, and he explained that one of the waitresses had an emergency and offered for us to come back and the meal would be one then. My husband and I had come in separate cars and left in different directions and my husband could not go back.
Excellent appetizers- especially the Brussels and the shishito peppers
I just love Rooney’s first of all the view is gorgeous!! The crab cakes are delicious!! The staff is very friendly and accommodating.
Can’t ask for anything else. Can’t wait to go back!
Beautiful restaurant in a beautiful location. Our meals where very mediocre not terrible but far from great. Service was good atmosphere was beautiful. I would go back just because the location and restaurant is so nice.
Great food and service! Beautiful views of the ocean!
All was great. Food fabulous,, Tim our server was professional and friendly, loved sitting outside.
Absolutely delicious meal. My picky father loved every bite!
Ate outside on the lower deck and had a great meal.
Loved everything about it! Food, service and ambiance spectacular
live music was great, perfect seating outdoor for a gorgeous night and the food was delicious. There were 6 of us and everyone's food was on point from appetizers to dessert!
Our dinner was delicious. The only thing bad was that we wanted to sit outside and there were no tables available
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!
Disappointed that the restaurant did not give us an outside table as I had requested
Family Wedding Anniversary
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!
