Beautiful view

Food was excellent but took too long to come out. Apology did come from the manager, but all too late. Our server was excellent and apologized for the slowness of the kitchen several times. Beautiful view and great atmosphere.

We are in love with this place! Top notch service, delicious drinks and the food is a taste of heaven. I could eat the crab and avacado stack every day.

Can't say enough about McLoone's. Although I typically don't like a chain trend, McLoone's Pier House is an exception. The views and aromas of seaside dining make it a must.

For appetizers we had clams, oysters and hot wings. All were good. Then we had fish tacos (which my son said they... More

great views of the Atlantic Ocean as you enjoy your meal in this restaurant. The service was fast despite it being fully packed. it is great for large groups (although when crowded can be very loud, so perhaps you may want to consider a quieter place for business dinners). Other than that, the food was very tasty, especially the mussels!

A major plus of this restaurant for me is gluten free selections, and of course the gorgeous views. The food was just "ok." A few misses included: very salty raw clams, and dry short ribs. Nice cocktail menu. My salmon was very good. For a seafood restaurant I was very disappointed in their version of a seafood/raw bar appetizer.

We had a business dinner here. The view was spectacular. Our table was looked out over the beach and ocean. It felt as if you were floating above the sand. The food and service was excellent.

Food was excellent and served quickly. Delicious salads, desserts. Young experienced wait staff and check in. Gorgeous view of the ocean and beach. We ate here twice, once indoors and once outdoors. Generous portions.

Table settings, flowers, shrimp and sushi diplay were all picture perfect. Bartenders didn't miss a beat. Everything (filet medium rare, grilled salmon sauce on the side) was served hot and exactly as ordered. Superb presentation. Wait staff could not have performed any better. The sounds of 80 voices was absorbed nicely. A/C quite comfortable.
