We were a party of ten. We had a great time. The food was delicious. We were talking a lot and never felt rushed. Beautiful view.

we sat by the window and watched the ocean roll in as we had lunch. The view was spectacular the service was outstanding (Daniel) and the food was absolutely perfect. This is the place to dine in Long Beach !!

The views are stunning. Outdoor seating overlooking the ocean, fresh modern decor. Nice atmosphere. The food is ok depending on what you order. Lobster Mac & cheese is good, fresh raw bar: oysters, clams, shrimp, stay away from the lobster bisque: no taste and the consistency of spackling putty.

While the location and view at Rooney's are first rate and the staff is certainly top flight, the reality is that you are paying a lot more for food that you can easily find elsewhere both better and cheaper. You pay for the view and the breeze here and are left wondering why you paid so much.

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.

The selections for brunch were definitely better then Other local popular ocean front brunches in the area. Raw bar was awesome, raw tuna carpachio, locks, oysters etc... seafood gumbo , shrimp grits, lobster macaroni, carving station were all excellent. It's nice to see some unique offerings. Quality was superb but I have to say the servers really made us happy.... More

This lovely restaurant is in a great location and offers ocean views from nearly every table. There is also an open-air section during fair weather that offers lovely ocean breezes with the views. 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
