We have been to Rooney's many times always enjoyed the food and service. First time we visited off season. Service by Matt was top shelf. The food as always was fresh and outstanding. We always enjoy our visits to Rooney's.

We had a wonderful dining experience for our daughter's post-wedding brunch. We received compliments from all of our guests about the food and service. Everyone was appreciative of the staff's accommodating and personal touch and attentiveness - and the view is spectacular.

Disappointed as first timer. What started promising in beach setting quickly became over crowded and noisy. Service also began attentively with drinks and some bread but appetizers were overlong in coming and indistinctive. Entrees then came too soon and were mediocre at best. Have had...More
