Have been going to Rooney's since they opened back in the 80s. Has changed décor many times but always a great place for friends gathering and good food....fish fry on Friday's has always been good eats. A must place to go when you are in town.

This is a very laid back restaurant. You can eat inside or outside. The staff is very friendly. You are made to,feel,like you are one of the family. The burgers are fantastic. And the beer is always cold.

Ordered the lunch special - it was horrible. Fish - with spice just dumped on top of it - not prepared in the flavors as advertised (lemon pepper). Couldn't eat it -... More

Met some really fun, interesting people at Rooney's and everyone was so friendly. Had a delicious quesadilla that was fully stuffed. A friend enjoyed the fried shrimp dinner. The clam chowder was fresh, loaded with clams and had a wonderful flavor. The servers were friendly, and everyone there seemed to have a good time. Will definitely be going back.

My husband and I have been coming here for years and we enjoy the food and the fact that you can eat indoor or outdoor. The staff is very friendly , and not a long wait time for food.

Been there for years, we and other people have been going for 12 of those years and the service, quality of food for the price have been above excellent.

Also we have had birthday parties and anniversary parties that... More

Not kid friendly. Asked for a kid cup and they thought we were crazy. I thought my fish basket was gross. My husband had a shrimp po boy and thought it was okay. Not a place I would go back to.
