32nd wedding anniversary dinner. Great wine selection. Fabulous food. Perfect setting. Why advertise when you don’t need to. And great service.

Our family celebrated one birthday just before Christmas at Rooney’s. It was decorated beautifully for the holidays and we had such a great experience we returned the following April for another birthday celebration. I’m sure we’ll be celebrating many more occasions there!

You know Kate, just a suggestion, but it would be WAY easier for you to call or email the restaurant and ASK THEM! As wonderful, polite and friendly as the staff was, I'm sure they could answer your question directly.
