It's a big ocean...someone has to embrace it.
Birthday dinner for John!! We were just contemplating a dessert to share after enjoying delicious apps and entrees when the power went out! The auxiliary generators kicked in quickly, and we were fine, felt bad for those who were unable to be seated or served due to the emergency conditions... but the managers Neil and Daryl are top notch, as well as seasoned wait staff (especially Cassie!!!) made our visit terrific.... as usual!!!
We are returning tonite with different family members!! See you soon, Rooney’s!!!
Great food, service and view. Prices a tad high.
Staff and food was great. The only concern we had was that many guests were not wearing their masks when they walked around.
Great experience. Outside and patio dining. View of the water. Great food. Excellent service. Will go back. Kaprice our server was exceptional.
Wonderful place. Believe all the hype!! Delicious food and great service.
Food was very good, but some of the dishes were a little too rich
Had a lovely lunch! We were quickly seated even though we got there early for a reservation. Server was pleasant and attentive. The vibe was great. The background music was perfect and the food delicious.
My wife and I went there for our anniversary, besides the tropical storm coming in it was amazing. The staff was amazing and very apologetic about the incoming storm. Nothing which they can control. Can’t wait to go back soon !
We really enjoyed our outside dining experience. Rooneys has a large outside space.
We started with mussells and korean ribs. The mussells were so tasty a lot of bread dunking in the broth. The ribs were tender. I had crab stuffed Mahi it was delicious. Lots of crab. Our waiter was attentive and thorough. Everyone enjoyed their cocktails and meals. Can't wait to go back.
Several of the dinners were excellent two others were dry and tasted like the were left over.
There is a new chef in town and all the meals were winners, service very pleasant and terrific and location, exceptional as always. A little pricy but very good
Food and service were excellent
View was beautiful
Wonderful oceanfront dining. Very pricey but can’t beat the view and atmosphere. Tables spaced well apart and all waitstaff wore well fitting masks. Food was fresh and delicious and came out quickly.
My sister has been taking care of her bed ridden husband since November. She was able to take a break and we went to the beach and then lunch at Roonies. We were seated in the main dining area. The view, the food and the service were excellent. Thank you. It was a very special day.
Great food, atmosphere, and service
Great view from every table and waitstaff was amazing quick and courteous
This was a great experience. Not only are they keeping it safe but they are able to accommodate many cars and people during this pandemic. That would have been enough but the food was actually wonderful. I got the grilled tuna and it was a big hunk of top sushi-grade cooked perfectly. Service was also first rate.
The best place and the food was delicious I super recommend
Its always beautiful on the water! The Rooneys crew is awesome!
The only drawback was that they seemed to be a bit short-handed, so everything was a little slow; otherwise, it was great!
Wonderful place for a family dinner! Celebrated birthdays tonight. but didn't like that they wouldn't see us before the entire party was there we only had five people and three of us were present, And we had a reservation. Otherwise great service.
Seated quickly. Beautiful view of the ocean. Social distancing observed. Excellent food and service
I love coming here! I’m never disappointed coming here and can’t say that about some other places nearby. The food is absolutely delicious, we’re never rushed, and the service is fantastic. Love the seating with the beach view. The tuna bruschetta, crab cakes, mussels, and all of the fish dishes are amazing. I always bring friends here when they visit and everyone leaves happy and full.
Food was great service was great. Oysters and clams a little small but tasty! Had a beautiful night 💕
Fabulous Dinner and server was exceptional!
We LOVE Rooney's restaurant! We have dined here often in the past but this is the first time since the zombie apocalypse (COVID-19) and we were pleasantly surprised that they maintained the same high-level quality and service that we enjoyed before. They were crazy-busy so I would suggest making reservations but I would also point out that despite being busy the waitress was very attentive and the food was served quickly (and without mistakes). This is definitely our favorite place to eat in Long Branch.
Had a 6:30 reservation and were seated promptly on time despite restaurant being very busy. Very impressed by this as walk up diners was told there was a two hour wait.
Food was all excellent. Very fresh and well seasoned all around.
We were seated with a perfect view of the ocean. It could not have been more perfect.
This was our first time eating here and i would highly recommend it. The food and service was great.
Excellent food and service on the ocean
Great food & view of ocean. Quick service & kind wait staff
As always the hostesses who greeted us were super nice and accommodating and our waitresses were friendly and courteous ,we always enjoy our food and drinks at Rooney's.
This was a great outdoor dining experience. I brought my fiance here for her birthday dinner and we both were extremely satisfied.
Excellent! Love it there
Beautiful atmosphere combined with great seafood made for a wonderful summer lunch at Rooney’s. Friendly and courteous service
Everything was great from start to finish. From reservations to dessert.
Great service, ambiance, food and drink celebrating our wedding anniversary!
Absolutely beautiful setting for dinner - what can beat watching the sun set into the ocean and then a full moon casting its light over the waves? Very nice ambience and restaurant design, with huge accordian windowns for indoor/outdoor dining. They were good at enforcing COVID protocols, important during this time. We had the fish board and the steak. Food is decent - not top-notch but quite good and menu offered a number of non-seafood options. A little overpriced in my opinion. Service was good and efficient, though our server wasn't overly friendly. Loved that they had a good-sized parking lot as it is a problem in this area. Would return again - and it would be a great place to take out-of-town guests
With the Covid 19 protocols in place, the seating was all outside. Initially they wanted to seat us at a 'group' table, meaning we sit at one end of a table and some other couple is at the other end. Well we asked for a private table and got one right out on the edge of the boardwalk with a view of the ocean. It was nice, but would have liked to have their usual musical entertainment. I guess that is too risky at this time.
It was a perfect night. Beautiful views, waitress was the best and food was excellent
