Mcloone's Rum Runner is a great restaurant for a romantic evening. The views are breathtaking especially at sunset. The food is fantastic and the drinks superb. Seafood is the specialty by they also serve great "comfort food" dishes that are sure to please. One of our favorite restaurants at the shore.

Nicely located along the Navasink River this restaurant offers a few opportunities. Not only it serves visitoirs, parties but one can have business meetings too. From the outside it looks akay but nothing special, however being inside we were pleasantly surprised. Beautiful wooden tables not to close to one another and a very nice set up breathing an atmosphere of... More

We arrived on a beautiful early fall afternoon. It was nice and warm enough that we could sit outside and enjoy the view of the Navasink River. We were fortunatly not in a hurry but the service was, to say the least, relaxed. Our wait person was new and I would have to compliment hern on effort if not service.... More

I was looking for a nice place to celebrate an anniversary. I've driven by Mcloone's Rum Runner many times, so I figured I'd give it a shot. We went on a Sunday evening around 5PM. The restaurant inside is pretty outdated but the location is great. We sat eating dinner, while watching boats ride by in the water. It was... More

Sitting on the deck here and watching the boats on the Shrewsbury river on a nice night is great, but the food and service need improvement. Our waitress was very nice, but she just wasn't that good at her job. Our table was so unsteady, we were getting seasick just sitting there, so we asked 3 different employees for some... More

Great Raw bar, excellent brunch. It is a little cramped indoors, so if you can go outside, awesome. Lovely staff.. it is my favorite of the McLoone locations

I have been to this restaurant many times in the last few years - in good weather and bad. Each time the view of the river and surrounds was different, but always fantastic. Food and service are also above average.

The only reason that I'm giving this three stars is because we had a LOVELY waitress that night. The food was uninspiring, and though I felt badly because the restaurant was dealing with the water main breakage in Lincroft (it affected a large area in Monmouth County that night), it still was really below average food. Now this was my... More
