We visited McLoone's for the brunch a few weeks ago as we were checking it out prior to hosting a Sunday brunch for 50 people after our daughter's wedding. They can manage guests in small seatings, but don't book a group until this property gets it's act together. We arrived to tight seating in the upper room and 2 servers.... More

This restaurant has a great view and nice looking menu. I was at Gaylord for a conference and walked over with my husband for happy hour. We sat at the largely empty bar and weren't acknowledged for several minutes. Then a bartender slapped a drink menu down...then he took it back and said "that's not for you" ... and took... More

Had dinner on the deck on a Thursday night. We had reservations, but they were not needed for the deck. Sunset was great. The food was great. Our waitress was very attentive. We shared a meal and had appetizers and a salad each. The stuffed shrimp were delicious.

While on a business trip, our group of 10 ate here for dinner. Everyone was very friendly and gave us great service. The food was quite good! I had crab stuffed shrimp that were very tasty. And the appetizers were great. The bartender made great drinks too. Only drawback...the restaurant itself felt dated and a bit old. It needs a... More

The Lobster bisque was delicious and was not salty. The salad was really good. I think the name in the menu is Betty's salad. We order it with salmon, which was also cooked to perfection. Our server, Tiffany, was very pleasant and spontaneous. Her service felt authentic and natural.

Had dinner here during a conference at National Harbor ... we had a table overlooking the water and the various harbor activities outside. We both ordered the Maryland crab cake dinners and they were spectacular. We started with a shared capreses salad and then followed it with the crab cakes (two each) served with lightly sautéed spinach and a sweet... More

Also Friendly servers on the patio! This is a restaurant that I would only go for happy hour next time. The service by the wait staff and host were very pleasant. The sunset view is spectacular. Food not up to par with other seafood places in the area and I will tell you why. Presentation of food was nice. The... More

Great experience, every time I have visited. The Crab Cake Appetizer and the Chicken Noodle Soup were superb. Even the Caesar with Chicken was great, along with the wine and beverages! All the menu was politely and efficiently served by Tremecia, our cordial server. My wife and I had a great day.. dining out on the deck. Veterans, this establishment... More

We had lunch on a blazingly hot Sunday afternoon. Our server was friendly but not intrusive. He was constantly filling our water glasses with a smile saying that we needed to stay hydrated on such a hot day. He gave honest feedback on the menu stating that he thought the value was poor for the crab ravioli ($32 for 8... More
