“Food's not so great!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

I guess the view is what you go for! Party of 6, mostly burgers and drinks. Some of the burgers were ordered Well, others rare, others medium, all came out well done. Also the buns had obviously been microwaved and were very very chewy, so much so that they could not be cut with a steak knife.
Since the burgers were $11 each, I was kind of expecting a bit more. On the good side, the Clams Casino were great, also the waiter was very attentive.
Just beware, you are paying for the view!!

“They survived the hurricane!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

The view of the ocean and the happy hour specials at the bar are the bomb! Get there early on a Friday for an awesome free buffett that included fresh salmon, cheese, pasta, short ribs....

“Beautiful view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We recently dines at Rooneys while visiting long branch. We had never seen this resturant before on previous visits and decided to go in for a drink to explore. What a terrific place!!! The view of the ocean is panoramic in all seating areas and the waiters and bartenders are friendly and great. The food is slightly overpriced but the bar menu and appetizers are moderately priced. Drinks are a bit more costly but you are paying for the atmosphere. I would definitely reccomend Rooneys to all and I plan on visiting again soon! After hurricane Sandy and the devastation of the Jersey Shore it was wonderful to sit and look at the beauty of the ocean.
