Description: A friendly family restaurant that serves seafood, steaks, and American fare. We also have live entertainment 5 nights a week, including John Morgan's Happy Hour on Saturday, Trivia with Patrick on Thursday, and the MOST (50's-60's dance band) two nights a week! Jake Rooney's is the only licensed "Stonegrill" restaurant on the Cape. Stonegrill dining presents the diner with a searing hot stone to cook each bite of their dinner to perfection. It's a fun and unique experience.

“Never will I return”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2009

After reading all the positive reviews we tried Jake Rooney's. We had awful service (our server forgot numerous drinks and blamed it on the bar), as well as having a piece of french fry in our marinara sauce, and then an elastic in one of our entrees. After we told the waitress she said she spoke to her manager and that they would offer us dessert, we declined. then when we got the bill with an extra drink we had never recieved, we asked to speak to the manager. When the manager came over she was helpful and ended up comping a meal which led us to believe our server had never told her what was going on. Just all around bad experience!

“a place for everyone!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2009

I love Jake Rooneys! My family and I stumbled on this little hidden place. I was sure we wouldn't be able to be seated with a party of 13 with no reservation, but we were greeted with a smile and a very short wait. Kerry, our waitress greeted us with a huge smile and her service was excellent. The menu is very large with plenty for everyones taste. I would recommend Jake's for everyone, even families, as they have a dining room away from the bar area.

“My favorite place on Cape Cod”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2008

This is the best place to eat on Cape Cod!!! Have tried others that are far more expensive, but always come back to Rooney's. The friendly atmosphere is terrific and you can't beat the food any where.

“My favorite pub on the cape”

Good food, cold beer, good service and best lobster stew anywhere! Best time to go is for a late lunch in the summer and anytime in the winter.
