My daughter just had her wedding here. It was perfect. The staff was on point. The managers were great and extremely accommodating. Just an overall fantime

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

Starting with the stale bread and butter, we should have left at that point...The first course was the oysters... Our waiter told us they were a best seller and medium to large in size... When delivered they were burnt, stuck to the shells, rubbery and...the size of a dime... When we told the waiter, he had no reply and charged for them anyway... The filet mignon was dry, over-cooked and tasted re-heated... The only redeeming quality of this meal were the deserts, a sushi roll and calamari.... The service was adequate.... A piece of advice... if you can’t do it right, don’t stay open.... I gave this a rating of one star and I feel that was being generous.More

Visited last year for a friend's wedding and everything was awesome! I had the chicken savoy (pan-seared chicken breast topped with artichoke hearts, cherry tomatoes & a balsamic demi-glaze). The salad did not have enough dressing on top but the lobster ravioli was delicious! Most...importantly, the view is absolutely amazing! (visited 11/9/19)More

The view is terrific but the food is nothing special. Service was also kind of slow. Our waitress was nice but I think they gave her too many tables.

Right on the beach overlooking the Ocean. Service was terrific, but food was below par. The bisque was poured over small chunks of lobster, but it poured out in blobs; much too thick. The pasta with lobster was dry and overdone. We didn't even stay...for dessert.More
