When you go on vacation, eating out at a nice restaurant is a MUST. We chose McLoone's Pier House and we weren't disappointed. Not only was the location by the beach ideal, but it was within walking distance of the hotel we stayed at. We...LOVED the food so much that we came back several times for lunch as well as dinner. Our NY Strip steaks at dinner were deliciously seasoned and cooked to perfection. The Lobster Mac and Cheese dish portions were more than generous; so much so we could barely finish. For lunch, sitting outside al fresco was fun since we could enjoy the ocean breezes and the boardwalk action. Our food was almost as delicious as our dinner that night. Mcloones Quesadilla were so good! Had no idea that the Husband had never had guacamole before but he definitely loves it now! We can't wait to come back during our vacation next year! McLoone's will definitely be our number one place to go for dinner!More

Ate at McCloone and when our bill came we noticed that we were charged more for items than the menu reflected. When we made the waitress aware, she confirmed it was wrong but said when she told her manager he said that the computers were...updated with the new prices but the new menus didn't come in yet. WHAT!!! No offer to make good on the check. Food average and place is shifty. Bye by McCloone's!More

Right on the beach, text when table is ready. Pleasant music. I had the lobster bisque which was creatively served. My travel partner and I both chose the steak appetizer which was perfectly cooked and in a sauce so good we wanted to lick the...plate, seriously I spooned every bit of that sauce I can get. My travel parter had the crab cake appetizer which was only one and served with some sort of corn. She loved the cake, hated hated the corn. I also disliked it which was strange. The prices were half that of our hotel and reasonable. A word about our server who is a teacher on her off season time. She was comfortable and a pleasure to interact with. Nothing forced or overly polite, just an easy, excellent server that any restaurant would be lucky to have. Even if the good wasn’t good which it was, she made our dinner super pleasant. We would have loved to see crablegs on the menu.More

I love the location right on the beach. You can't beat the view. The food is very average and the expensive drinks are very strong and too boozy. The service was good

We got take out and it was very tasty. Had a few pasta dishes and salads. We’ll worry trying it out. Prices are reasonable.

Horrible and pricey, for a local stop, sushi is disgusting, hard rice, Portions are very small, drinks are watered down, more of a tapas, than a meal Wedge salad size of a coffee cup and for 12.95? Tourist trap, stay away, and don’t let the...ocean views fool you, they are very pricey.More

Seven of us went there for lunch. The food was good, but not for the price. The service was not that great. They messed up three of the orders. Three of us had ordered a dessert from their dessert tray. They then came back to...tell us they were out of it.More

Let me start by saying, I don't send food back. I shouldn't have to, it should be right the first and every time. That being said, when I looked at the lunch menu, said to myself, what can't they mess up? A burger, regular plain...burger, went with that. Ordered it medium, got it SUPER well done. Took my first bite, inside was luke warm, well done, and dry. Also, the stale bun broke as I took the bite. Enough said, won't go back there, if you don't believe me, please try it yourself.More

Where staying at a hotel nearby that did not have their restaurant/bar open because of covid. Ended up at McLoone's at could not have been happier. Their food was excellent and server was great. While not packed, the restaurant had all safety precautions in place...and we felt comfortable and enjoyed out time and food. Will definitely go back.More
