A very good place prior to Hurricane Sandy. Had great water views and deck & indoor seating. They are however still CLOSED. Rebuilding started a few weeks ago and the elevation above flood level and the steel framing is impressive. Looking forward to their return.

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.

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
