Do you remember when you could actually get a burger cooked so it is pink in the middle? They will still do that here. Few other places will do that anymore.The standard sides are rippled potato chips and (remember this?) macaroni salad. I haven't had that stuff for years. The French Onion soup was wonderful. The atmosphere is typical bar/pub,... More

I drive by Rooney's every day on my way to work, and any time I've driven by there during the day, the parking lot is always packed, so a colleague and I decided to check it out. The menu is eclectic with a lot of great choices. The food we ordered was delicious. The atmosphere is very homey and friendly.... More

This is a neighborhood bar and restaurant. It's casual and comfortable. We were invited by a friend while in town. This is like a neighborhood Bennigans with a simpler menu. The staff was very friendly. The weather was perfect for their outside patio.

Try the fish fry on Friday and you won't be disappointed. Or - the shrimp basket is also a great value - filling and perfectly breaded. All their food is pretty good.

Horrible, that sums up my family's visit to Rooney's. The food is definitely inexpensive and the atmosphere casual. The service was ok and the waitress friendly. But the food... My son had the chicken parm dinner. He is 8 years old and loves chicken parm but he wasn't really eating much. After I tasted it I realized why. OMG the... More

Best fried fish I have ever eaten. Service was excellent. Quite speedy (felt a little rushed but this was the fried fish special on Friday so it was understandable.) Air condition vents blew on us so we moved a couple of times and the waitress was not upset.

If you want a consistent, not franchised restaurant with pub type food and a casual atmosphere in the area this is a very good one. We had great service, they accommodated special needs both dietary and physically for my guest. The food was quite good and the menu had a good variety.

No advertising required for this little local place where you always get great food, cold beverages, good services and a warm welcome. If you haven't stopped in there yet....do it. You won't be disappointed.
