Amazing dinner

A group of 10 woman went here for dinner. EVERY single one of us loved our meal. The appetizers were great(wedge salad, the shrimp app, and crab tower. Entrees we got were the short ribs, grouper, sea bass, and lobster scampi...everyone loved it all. Service was great. We had an awesome experience... read more

My sister and I checked out of our hotel next door and decided to have lunch at McLoone's before getting on the road. Because it was a late lunch, we were the only ones in the restaurant. We sat at the bar and enjoyed the beautiful views of the ocean. I ordered oysters on a half shell and the roasted... More

This restaurant sits right on the sand with huge windows overlooking the beach. The view is outstanding. We came twice for lunch so can't comment about dinner, but lunch was good. I had salad and a sandwich. Prices are higher than average. Parking can be a little difficult and I think it was meters but not definite.

Went over to the Pier to have lunch, this place was perfect, we were greeted happily by the hostess and immediately got a table over looking the ocean. The restaurant was clean and inviting, not rushed at all. Our server was friendly and accomadating,m but not pushy or overbearing We ordered drinks, they came right away and were perfect, we...

We love the brunch buffet. There is so much wonderful food--wish we were bigger eaters! Everything was delicious and the music rocks!

We decided to change it up this year and go out for brunch. After searching for a place we decided on McLoone's. We were not disappointed. Great view, wonderful service and a huge buffet. Waffle station, omelet and carving stations. Smoked salmon, breads, the biggest oysters I've ever seen plus clams and shrimp. The usual breakfast stuff (bacon, sausage, etc),... More

This has been our fourth Christmas eve here, this time it was a little busier then I remember it. Service and food was good as always, I had a special of chicken breast stuffed with sausage stuffing over risotto. Very good. Only thing that didn't give it five stars is the price, I do think it is a tad over... More

The view is great, the food is good. Lobster roll and burger seem to be the best bet on the menu. Just lacking on happy hour specials and weekend specials. Too many other locations offer better deals.

Unfortunately I was unimpressed with this restaurant despite their great location. The food is just average, nothing is great. It sits in such an ideal location, right off the beach in a cute little town that you would expect great seafood and tasty dishes which sadly is not the case. Its also not cheap. I dont mind paying for food... More

Overpriced drinks and food I sat at the bar and watched the line cook prepare grilled salmon that sat on a hotplate for over an hour...only part of the visit I truly enjoyed was the view of the ocean...might be a long time before I give it another chance if I ever give it another chance.
