Our dinner at Rooney's

My fiancé and I and another couple had dinner at Rooney's on Saturday, February 28th. Our thoughts and opinions: 1. When we walked in, there was a party going on in one of the adjacent rooms. I love parties like most people but it would have been nice if they had mentioned that 50 people were... read more

We went there at Super Bowl Sunday for lunch, there were closing at 3 pm and we arrived there at 2:30 pm. The manager told us that we can order and they won't rush us until we finish our meal. And they didn't rush us at all, we stayed until 4 pm. We ordered seafood bake with two 1 and... More

My better half and I went for a car ride to Sandy Hook for a walk on the beach as we needed to get out. We drove around just enjoying the day and delaying the onset of any cabin fever. I decided to surprise her and drove into Long Branch instead of heading home for a late lunch. We ordered... More

Of all the restaurants on the boardwalk at end of Ocean Place , this place offers the most people closest seating to the boardwalk and beach. Drinks are over size, waffle fries are crisp and lunch devine. Prices reasonable, especially for groups.

Went to Rooney's with some friends for a quiet dinner prior to ringing in 2015. Food was good, but not great which we all chalked up to the fact that it was a holiday. It is a beautiful location and we will most likely revisit in the summer when you can really appreciate the view!

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...
