Ten of us visited Rooney's for a late Sunday lunch and were impressed with the view, the food and the attentive service. My wife had salmon while I opted for their Low Country Creole, a tasty combination of shrimp, scallops, salmon, tilapia, rice, vegetables, okra and cayenne, accompanied by jalapeno cornbread. What a winner! It was a terrific way to... More

Today we visited Rooney's for dinner The drinks were excellent, beautiful view and very good service but the quality of the food was not the best. My husband ordered the crab cake and it was Ok (average). I decided for the Maine Lobster and it was not good at all, you can have a better lobster in your local Red... More

This place is to dye for. The atmosphere and service were fantastic. We happened to be walking the beach and stumbled on this place. We were only there for a short time, but will make sure to go back next time we visit the shore. In the summer, this place will be packed I'm sure. We sat at the bar... More

I went to dinner with three business colleagues and it was a pretty good evening. You can't go wrong with the ocean and boardwalk view. The waitress was very attentive and always had a smile on her face. The highlight app was the special grilled swordfish bites. It was grilled nicely and had a nice little heat which was a... More

This brunch has it all. Fresh clams, oysters shrimp all you can eat. Eggs, smoked salmon, carving stations I could go on and on. A wonderful place to have a above average brunch with a great view of the ocean. The service is a ten and the food is also a ten.

The food here is excellent and they even have live music during brunch in the summer. I love the ocean view and the various clans and oysters were wonderful, not to mention the drinks and music. This is a fun place for couples and small groups anytime, but the brunch, although a bit pricy, is a real treat. Did I... More

Can't beat the awesome views of the ocean; however, you pay for it. Very expensive all around (drinks - food), small portions. If you want to enjoy the views, suggest you order 1 drink and make it last. Would go back for the views, and may try the Sunday brunch, which appears to be more in line with "normal" pricing.
