Nice atmosphere with live music and views of the water but thought both our food and service was pretty average. Might stop at the bar for a drink but probably won't go back for dinner.

If you ever visit National Harbor you have to try this place, the food is delicious! I think this is the best restaurant at the harbor and one of the best seafood restaurants in the area, yes it's a little pricey but great food, drinks, ambiance and service. Worth every penny!

We went as part of a group. The service was incredibly slow, it took us an hour and a half to get our food and then it was brought out plate by plate. When we asked for the bill, it took forever and then we received one bill for the group even though we asked for individual checks. A few... More

We have been to McLoone's about 4 other times and enjoyed ourselves, so we decided to go again. I'm so sorry we wasted our time and money. Not sure if it has gone downhill, or just a bad day. We WON'T be going back, there are too many other choices to "settle". The service was awful. We really thought we... More

my wife and I went here for Christmas Eve dinner. Made reservations through Open Table. Everything was terrific, our server Morgan was a very nice young man and did an excellent job. The Lobster Bisque was one of the best I ever had. My wife had the Osso Buco which was awesome and I had a great New York Strip.... More

I really hate when a restaurant is great in one aspect and falls short in others. It makes it difficult to recommend the place and yet, I want to bring out the good points. I recently was in the National Harbor area for a conference. A few friends, that I had not seen since the last conference the previous year,... More

Meal was great. 3 meats, 6 sides, salad and 5 desserts. The atmosphere is relaxed and we enjoyed our time at the restaurant. Second Thanksgiving that we have eaten here.

I planned a dinner for a group of bloggers I know who were attending a conference with me last night. I picked McLoone's because I had eaten there once before. They were super-flexible about changing the number in our party (It swelled from 12 to 21!) several times over the course of a month. In fact, we added a couple... More

We arrived the night of the National Christmas Tree lighting so everything in the area was extremely busy. We stopped by for a late evening dinner and were able to get in with a reasonable wait. During the wait we were able to leave McLoone's and look at the area instead of just hanging out in the lobby. When our... More

We visited National Harbor on Saturday, November 15, and got a dinner reservation at McLoone's because it was located close to where the tree lighting ceremony and fireworks are. Since we're already in the area, we tried to see if they'll take us one hour earlier (than our reservation but decided we won't feel bad if they didn't). They took... More
