Ribs to die for

Fall-off-the-bone BBQ ribs and Great atmosphere. French onion soup, burger & the club sandwich all disappeared. The only downside was Avery slow waitress.

My wife and I were looking to go on a date at a place with some character and that wasn't a chain/franchise type place. The atmosphere at Rooney's is excellent, laid-back and fun. The menu is large and well priced. I had the best chicken wings I've ever had and thoroughly enjoyed the prime rib. We loved sitting outside on... More

I got the French Onion soup, followed by the bacon cheeseburger.They still cook them to order here, so you can actually get a medium burger, with a pink and juicy center. The standard accompaniments are ruffled potato chips and the old favorite, macaroni salad. You never see this anymore. It's great!

The food is good, the service is excellent and the price is right. On Fridays they have fry fish special but all the food is good and the Restaurant is family friendly.

This is a great casual pub/restaurant for those who want good food at a reasonable price. Some of my favorites are their homemade French onion soup and their prime rib. Great fried haddock on Friday evenings. Lots of specialties like broiled seafood platter which I'll try next time. Good selection of draft beer.

I have dined at Rooney's for lunch on numerous occasions as my office is less than a 2-mile drive away. More often than not I order the Reuben sandwich. It is great! Easily the best Reuben I've ever had. The wait staff is always pleasant and the atmosphere is comfortable. It's a nice place to get away to during the... More

Upon entering the restaurant, my friend started to turn around and leave (he said because of the musty smell). I have allergies and cannot smell as well as he can, so I convinced him to give it a try and I am happy that he agreed. I had a steak and cheese sub which was delicious. The coleslaw was very...

Rooneys is a decent place to eat with good service and better than average food. We were here around St. Patrick's Day and didn't want to deal with the crowds downtown.

Got the fish and chips and it was tasty and crisp (as I like it) Wife got the steak and it was very good too. Not a fancy place, just good food.
