The staff was very attentive and courteous. Service was excellent as was the food. I would recommend for a nice Sunday brunch.
We have been to Rooney’s on numerous occasions but this was our first time trying their brunch. Food was delicious & the family style hash browns, sausage & bacon added to the meal. Our bloody Mary’s were excellent. Our waitress was great, very attentive & helpful. We definitely will be back for brunch.
We felt there was not enough choice for brunch and it was a bit pricy for what we got
We always love it here
Special thanks to the Rooney’s chef for a scrumptious dinner and to the always friendly owner and our server (can’t recall his name) for the successful birthday surprise for my husband last night (Jan 22). We are loyal patrons who always enjoy the excellent food, ambience, view, and service at Rooney’s.
Rooney’s is not inexpensive but is worth it. The food is consistently good, the service is also very good. The waitstaff is always pleasant.
Server was polite and efficient. I thought the over head silk ferns were a bit tacky. I enjoyed the clam chowder. The stuffed flounder was mushy and bland. The menu says no substitutions so I was stuck with a side of rice and artichoke hearts. There was more artichoke than anything on my plate. I’m not a fan of artichoke. The bread pudding dessert was good. I would visit again and try something else.
Awesome food and service. Everyone enjoyed themselves. Lobster mac and cheese is the best.
As always… dinner was delicious!
Mackenzie was our server tonight, and she was a delight.
Great view of the beach and ocean. The food quality was good and presentation was very nice. Prices are a bit high. Overall a nice visit and we will return.
The food and menu choice was exceptional
Tables were well spaced from each other
From being greeted by the hostess to the service provided by our server to the manager coming over to the table to check on us we felt that Rooneys was glad we were there. The Sunday brunch was outstanding - the best we have been to with the best quality of food and value for the price
Bring your appetite!! Eclectic brunch menu. Everything was absolutely delicious. Service was great, too.
Let me begin that I have had incredible lunches and dinners at Rooneys over the past few years . Their steak and seafood dishes are outstanding . So when I read it was one of the top brunches in NJ, I was excited . The food was mediocre for this meal. The French toast was burnt a bit and the chicken and waffles was subpar . Sides were ok . The dessert sampler at the end was good . Service was great as usual . The views are captivating. I just wish the brunch experience was similar to what I have had at lunches and dinners there .
Fantastic Brunch, Excellent staff and a beautiful setting. We will be back!
Very lovey. Enjoyed drink at the bar and dinner seated at table. Staff all very pleasant. Staff and management very attentive 🙂really shows you care. Food was cooked to perfection Very pleasant experience esp in a very cold evening! Thank you
Honestly, some of the best and most consistent food in the area. Service is always great.
There is no shortage of staff at Rooney’s… which speaks volumes about their operation!
The food and service did not disappoint. Our server Dave was exceptional. Oysters and clams were very fresh and our entrees delicious! Thoroughly enjoyed!
I have eaten here on many occasions. This was one of the best meals I have had here. The chef was at the top of his/her game. Service was outstanding. Exceptionally well managed.
fresh food. great selection. fantastic service. wonderful wine selections
Consistently excellent food. Great server (Nicole).
Order a shrimp cobb salad ... that's all you need to know!
Menu has been modified and what was perfect has been improved.
Great view and friendly staff
We had a very lovely visit Saturday evening. The restaurant was busy - but with adequate distance among tables. The food was delicious - perhaps the best chopped salad I ever tasted. And the service from Curt was excellent…. He provided excellent guidance on the dinner selections and was appropriately attentive throughout the meal.
Thank you all!
We had an incredible dining experience on 01/08/2022. We were seated immediately. We were socially distanced from other tables. The ambience was lovely. Our server was so attentive and helpful and at least two managers came over to check on us through the night. And most importantly, the food was outstanding. Can't wait to go back!
Always a great time at Rooney’s. The whole family loves the food and the service is excellent. Highly recommend
Rooney's in Long Branch is a lovely restaurant in every way. Beautiful view of the ocean, excellent food and a very friendly and efficient staff. Will recommend highly to our friends and family.

Rooney’s never disappoints! Good and service top notch. Nice view of the water. My go to for excellent food
Family dinner on NYE. Very accommodating giving us a table on the main floor & not the patio as the hostess originally said as stairs are difficult for me in a surgical shoe. Food was terrific & waiter was very attentive.
Good food, good service!
Great place to go for seafood and fancy drinks..highly recommended!
Great table - great waitress - good food. The weather could have been better haha
New year lunch at the water
We go to Rooney’s often, so it was no surprise that our family got us a gift card. We decided to go to dinner and it was as great as usual. One thing I want to note is that our server noted that he was slow in getting back to us so he offered to buy our dessert. We didn’t take him up on the offer but I really appreciated the offer, very thoughtful. Our oysters were very good too. And dinners were spectacular - crab stuffed flounder and sausage and shrimp pasta. always a great time and good food!
We had a lovely lunch with friends. Our server, Nicky, went above and beyond. She was very friendly, accommodating and made us feel very comfortable. She made recommendations that were spot on.
We will definitely be back for dinner.
Not sure why open table has a selection for the type of special event because no one at the restaurant acknowledged the birthday celebration.
Service was fantastic. View from table awesome. Food was good and came out fast. Happy we went!
Always excellent. Rooney's is one of our very favorite restaurants. The food and service are consistently excellent. Our waiter was friendly and efficient. We always get fish from the fish board and it's always great. I had the salmon and my husband had the halibut. Both were cooked perfectly. The brussel sprouts, broccoli and cauliflower mash all were delicious. We'll be going back soon.
