Was in Long Branch again and decided to try McLoone's again. Had the crab cakes. They were just OK. The views are great but the prices are way too high.

Stopped here for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. The hostess and servers were very nice. We sat outside overlooking the water. The view was great and the tables have umbrellas for the sun. A few bees kept flying around, though. The food itself was sub-par....More

Location, location, location. McLoone's is just one of those places where you could care less about the menu selection as long as you could sit down with an ice cold drink and enjoy the sun and salt air. Not to say the food wasn't delicious...More

We went McLoone’s for a mid week happy hour. Happy hour was limited to the bar area only. Ok. We were approached by a waitress who clearly did not want to be working that day. No greeting, no guidance or suggestions. The beer selections were...More

Honestly, I have no idea. You need to complain to a manager or something. We were there twice this passed summer and both times my stomach was sick. The food is bad... it’s so sad. No coming back for sure.

Sorry, don't know - we go for food rather than drinks. The website doesn't say - try calling them. Also note that McLoone's has several locations, so be sure you call the right one (Pier House, Long Branch).
