Good Food With a View, but ...

Good things: the food is well-prepared, with innovative touches. Particularly enjoyed the beet salad and "vegan" risotto (though I'm not vegan). Desserts have improved - all made in-house. Nice Linzer Torte. The view of the ocean is pleasant - try for a table at a window. Middling things: from... read more

Thought I was embarking on a nice seafood dinner. Sat at the bar (only one other person was at the bar). Bartender bragged how busy it was during the summer, but was slow to attend at best. Ordered oysters and shrimp cocktail to start. Oysters were dry - no oyster liquor and two of them were bad! The shrimp were... More

I loved the mcloone's on Sea Bright and was devastated to lose it. I like the one on Long Branch but miss the quieter atmosphere of the other. The food is equally great, service excellent, but especially in the summer it gets quite loud in there when live bands are playing. I love the views, equally beautiful in summer and... More

Came here while visiting family and enjoyed it. We sat on their "outside" seating and had a few drinks and talked. Really great time.

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. Nice ambiance too!

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 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
