Love the atmosphere her both in the summer and winter. Great place to meet friends for a casual drink and bite to eat and you cannot beat the view!

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.

Had a bridal shower here on Saturday, can't say enough good things about this event.Working with Laura was a pleasure , she was so helpful with setting up the party as well as answering all my questions many times prior to event. Our head waiter Matt and his assistant (whose name I don't remember) were amazing. Service was excellent, unobtrusive... More

They must have paid a fortune for this property and spent another fortune on this splendid and well designed building. Expect to be shocked by it's beauty, breathtaking views and excellent service. Expect also to be shocked by it's prices, somebody's got to pay for all of this. four of us had different appetizers, entrees, and desserts. Everybody liked everything... More

Really loved Rooney's. It was elegant without being "stuffy". Service was terrific and the food was incredible. Fresh Seafood and even great pasta dishes. Portions were nice and they had a good wine selection - at half price on this Monday. Going back for sure!

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.
