Located right across from the boardwalk, it has an exceptional view of the ocean with a big outside deck, great for hanging out in the summer. The food and cocktails are good but its location is my favorite part. In my opinion the inside looks a bit like a dinner and could use some remodeling considering the fact that is... More

We wanted a nice meal with a great view. After walking out of a few places (some smelled wet) we arrived at Rooney's. I looked at the lunch menu and it looked like we three would enjoy something on the menu. It was about 2:30. It was a great meal and the view was stupendous.

Quality was superb but I have to say the servers really made us happy.... More

When I dined, I had the lobster salad sliders and my mother had the lobster mac a rooney. Both dishes were phenomenal! I look forward to my... More

I shouldn't write this review. In fact I should never mention this restaurant ever and keep it as my secret. We did a family brunch for the holidays and from the minute we were welcomed to the moment been left, the staff was helpful, outgoing and attentive. Now onto the food. The raw bar is reason enough to come. Once... More

if really good food and a fair price is what you want than dont go here.if a view and location is what you want than this is your place.food is average at best and very high priced for what your getting.id go to the avenue down the boardwalk for the same view and high prices but the food is better.
