Having never been before I was speechless from the View of the boardwalk and Ocean Front View making the Atmosphere perfect with down to earth staff and servers going out of their way to make our event Excepinal and one that will be remembered. Food was outstanding from my Garlic Artichokes to my Lobster Macaroni. Definitely a place to visit... More

A fantastic year round restaurant located on the beach. Views from every table and in the summer they have outside dining that's simply awesome. The food is creative and the menu offers something for everyone. Without question, the freshest seafood in NJ. Even the burgers are superb! They recently brought in a new chef and his additions to the menu... More

Something for everyone on the Sunday Brunch. Everything was so fresh and the smoked salmon was to die for. Three other people in our party thought the same thing. The atmosphere and view were phenomenal. Service was very attentive; and we were not at all rushed. A lovely Sunday afternoon. Great value for brunch.

Wonderful view of the beach and the ocean but food is nothing special to rave about and it's over priced.

After reading the the menu for the Rooney's Sunday brunch buffet (www.rooneysocean.com), we decided to try it. Our experience was that most of the food was very good, the service was friendly (but could have been a bit more focused), and the view (we had a corner window seat with 180 degree view of the beach and the ocean) was...

Recently visited Rooney's in Long Branch on a Friday Evening with my girlfriend for drinks and some dinner. We sat at the bar where you could actually see each other as well as the menu. The bartender service was good, the atmosphere was good, there was an excellent two man band playing. The bar was comfortable and warm. The music... More

The view of the ocean and the atmosphere are always worth the return trip. I always enjoy coming for a spectacular view and fantastic food when I come to visit the area from North Carolina. The prices are on the high side but I have never had a meal that wasn't worth it. The manager Darrel makes a point of... More

Back yet again as we hit the beach and needed a bite. If you find what works, stick with it. Burger is excellent. Tuna wrap and salads good. Happy hour raw clams, oysters and peel your own shrimp all excellent. Bigger meals tend to suck the big wet one, and are way overpriced. Biggest disappointment are the mixed drinks, glasses... More
