I recommend making a reservation we did and we got an awesome corner table with a 270 degree water view. Service was very attentive The waiter was not as knowledgeable as he should have been . My date asked what he could substitute for the fried pickles and he was told "broccoli" that the only vegetable we have. What no... More

Went for drinks and appetizer. We sat at the bar. We were greeted right away. Drinks were great. We ordered the short ribs nacho appetizer. Meat was delicious but the chips were to tough to chew. Maybe they were microwaved but not enjoyable at all. Usually the staff asks how the food is but not here. I expected a little... More

We had dinner and lunch in this restaurant. Especially the dinner was very nice. They have good selection of fresh seafood and a good selection of wines. The service is nice and efficient. The interior is rather basic and with groups and families a bit noisy. This was not a problem for us as we just wanted to have a... More

It was a windy, rainy Sunday afternoon so what better time to have a front row seat watching Mother Nature do what she does while enjoying a cozy and romantic ocean side dinner. Our experience began with perfectly prepared Manhattan and Pomegranate Martinis to relieve us of our chill. A loaf of warm, tasty bread soon found its way to... More

Located in Pier Village with great ocean/ beach views, this is always a nice place to visit. Parking can be hectic and it's metered during the summer. Valet parking is offered in Pier Village. Has indoor and outdoor seating, weather providing. Staff are attentive and very friendly. One of our bartenders, Kelsey, is always great. Not taking away from anyone... More

We had a wonderful dinner, the Nachos were huge and enough appetizer for four people. Buying a bottle of prosecco was priced better by the bottle than by the glass for four people check it out. DW had crab cake dinner, two guests had the Monk Fish dinner and I had the Mixed Seafood Risotto. Server was very attentive and... More

Dinner was a high-end meal. Huge portions, great wine choice. High end prices and views, but worth every penny.

The food is average, but not exceptional... the ambiance in the summer is good as they set an outside seating on the boardwalk. It is expensive for the type of restaurant that it is but the location compensates for that.

Menu has changed and so has the quality of the food and service. I truly enjoyed McLoone's Pier House but I don't frequent as much the last couple years.
