Rooneys Long Branch. Really?

DinnerChick11 | Sep 5, 2011 09:34 PM

I had dinner at Rooneys tonight (not my choice). I had been there in the past & it was always mediocre at best. First , I could not believe how expensive it is. Now, I do not mind paying a lot for my food at a place like Nicholas, where I know I am going to have a great food experience. But I was skeptical as I read Rooneys menu. $45 for lobster risotto? $40 for a piece of halibut? $59 for crab legs? I ended up ordering the broiled seafood dish. It was okay if you don't mind overcooked seafood & bland rice. Add in the stale dinner rolls & the dirty bathroom to round out my sad dining experience. On a positive note, the view of the ocean was wonderful.
