Excellent selection of everything Thanksgiving as well as a raw bar. Food was excellent, especially the Lobster Bisque and the service outstanding (Thanks Matt) plus a view of the Atlantic.

I've eaten and drank at Rooneys many times and always leave very satisfied. Drinks are well made with generous pours and appetizers as well as entries are excellent. The char grilled oysters are better than any in New Orleans and fish is always fresh. Try the poached salmon and ask for my favorite drink...blueberry Long Island (blueberry vodka instead of...

Weekend away with girlfriend, This restaurant is not romantic but the service, staff, food were all excellent. The wine list could be improved. And it is a tab bit on the expensive side.

This was my second time leading a group of about 15 people to this restaurant. The staff was well prepared for us and even called ahead of time to talk about our options for splitting the check. We were pretty much a drinks and entrees crowd and everyone was happy with things for the most part. One notable exception was... More
