I and my wife and friends have enjoyed Rooney's on a number of occasions. Always great fish. The beer selection leaves much to be desired. I like excellent IPA's......they have one that is awful! Stick with the fish!

Went to get the pork sandwich but it's no longer offered. Had the special of prime rib., Food was ok but expected a little better quality ( more fat than I'd like). It gets noisy but then again it is a bar . Friendly people and bar staff. Will try again in spite of hearing negative comments from neighbors. It's... More

We've gone to Rooney's for years for their fish fry and always enjoyed it. We went last week and had a totally different experience. We waited for some time for our dinners. When they came, both looked very nice, with large, plump pieces of fish. The french fries were a little skimpy, but not a big deal as we had... More

Looks like a bar, but it's much more! Ate lunch here on a whim, to try something new. Can't believe I've overlooked it for 2 years (since working in the area)! Although the menu is pretty standard fare, it was just REALLY good! My burger was simply Excellent! Now I want to go back & try more things from the... More

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.

The place appears dirty, grimy, and dingy. The menus are soiled with foodstuff. The seats need upgrading. Very little parking available. The food left much to be desired. 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.
