“Casual Spot on the Ocean in Long Branch”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

We usually have dinner in the bar after a day at Monmouth Park. Nice setting with big windows overlooking ocean and freindly service. I think the the food here, though good, is generally a cut below neighboring Avenue and Sirena. We usually keep things simple and opt to split a number of appetizers for the table and make that our dinner. On the last trip we had the Drunken Clams, Asian Beef Skewers, Thai Barbecue Wings, Tuna Tequila, Clams on the Half Shell and Spinach and Artichoke Dip. We've diner here mutiple times and have found the quality to be consisitent. Can get rather loud in the bar on a Friday night, which is to be expected. They have nice outdoor seating when the weather permits and we usually don't have a problem finding a table in the bar, even on Friday nights.

“Couldn't have asked for a better Thanksgiving.”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

After Sandy displaced my 82 year old mom and 3 additional family members, we decided to go out to eat for Thanksgiving. I called many places and Mcloones was the first with availability for 16. We opted for the buffet and we all couldn't have been happier with the food and kind service. Thank you Mcloones for a bit of normalcy in our lives.

“Great Setting for Almost Great Food”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Beautiful location on the beach. Ambitious (and expensive) menu, and almost always succeeds. Yo0u do pay for the view, though. Service pleasant and efficient. Wine list needs some work, esp. compared to its nearby competition Avenue.

“Average food”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

The buffalo chicken wontons were lush but I then had salmon which was massive and pretty tasteless. The saving grace was the mango salsa but this was quite gloopy. I didn't rate the food when considering how much they charged.
