We went here for their Family Style Thanksgiving. Everything was absolutely delicious!!! The only issue was that even after being sat, we waited over 15 minutes for a server to greet us, as there had been some confusion on the seating chart for the servers. No worries though, because after that, everything was outstanding! Will definitely return!
Thank you for your beautiful service and atmosphere.
McLoones never disappoints. Beautiful building with a great food and drink offering. Leave room for dessert!
Birthday it was very good food
Great food and atmosphere
Great patio for social distancing! Heaters helped.
Great server and host, food was great
This was our second time here in as many weeks. While it was CONSIDERABLY better than the last visit, there are still a few things that could be improved. We made a reservation for outside dining (because I had my dog with me) and after first being directed to a seat in the sun (with no umbrella) my elderly mother asked if there was a seat in the shade. The hostess said dogs weren't allowed in the shaded area. I laughed and said we had just been there the week earlier with the dog and sat in the shade…she conceded and sat us. I ordered the beet salad which was wholly unremarkable for $15. My mother got the short rib grilled cheese which was delicious but her sweet potato fries were cold. Our server was better than last time but between being given our bill and the wait to have him come pick it back up, it was disappointing. Still, you can't beat the view and it is one of the few places I can bring my dog after a nice stroll around the reservoir.
our 4th visit, enjoyable start to finish. well done.
I have been to McClun’s recently several times. The last two times I noticed a difference in service and in the cocktails. Service is slow but courteous. We sent back drinks twice as they were not made correctly. Heaters not working Upon arrival, pieces taped together, and one heater was actually melted at the top. I’m quite disappointed as of late overall.
Fantastic food. Gluten free friendly. Wonderful staff. Will be back.
Our server was awful. She didn't tell us the daily specials, did not attend to us regularly, left our water glasses empty and overall was not friendly.
Alternatively, the food was decent, but was not worth the price. My truffle gnocchi sauce was not emulsified and ended up separating (dairy from the truffle oil) within minutes of being served. It certainly is not what I would have thought a $30 dish would be prepared like.
As it stands we would not come back, unless maybe it's during the summer for a drink outside.
The service or lack of was Very Slow!!! After we ordered soup and salad arrived ... we had no utensils... after we asked two servers finally the third one brought us silverware... My wife had the steak frites and I the salmon... Her meal was good and my salmon not so much... Very Very over cooked and the minimal vegetables in the couscous had a bad smell.... I have always wanted to try this place for years and after a Great Day at the zoo ... I think the Boat House has Sunk... I really Don’t think I would go back...😢
Great view and selection of appys. Hoping they install outdoor heaters so we can visit as it gets colder.
Had a great time and the outdoor seating was fantastic
Service was not at usual level. I’m
Giving benefit of doubt that waiter was new.
Sat outside, propane heaters kept us toasty, view was lovely, service excellent.
Overall we had a great experience at Mcloone’s. I had been there before but my partner hadn’t and he thoroughly enjoyed his experience! Everything from the food to the service was excellent. Charlie was our server and he was very helpful! Will definitely be returning.
Beautiful place. Appreciate the outdoor suave during these times.
Jasmine was the best!
We had a lovely lunch overlooking the lake.
Great atmosphere, great service (thank you Brandy). Good food.
Last time we went here it was good so we decided to come again. The server forgot two things that we had asked for and never brought them. I had the chicken which was an over fried piece of chicken with a mountain of arugula. I barely ate the chicken and the fries were just okay. Probably won’t come back here. The view is nice though.
It was wonderful!!! Food was great!!! Atmosphere was beautiful! Great time!!!
Was wonderful - beautiful setting, great service. Food was great but the flatbread with lobster was FABULOUS!! We will be back!
Food is mediocre and a little over priced. Atmosphere and lake views (Sat outside) were great. Desserts are awful. Creme brule was icy cold, and brownie was rock hard on sides (overcooked there, most likely). Grilled cheese with meat didn't have much flavor, cheese or moisture. Outside dining Lakeview are excellent.
McLoone's Boat House benefits from a magnificent location on the edge of a beautiful lake in Essex County's South Mountain Reservation - not far from the Turtle Back Zoo. We had an outdoor table on the expansive deck overlooking the lake. It was an exquisite spring-like day, and our server, Georglana was wonderful . . . attentive, professional, and informative. The food was excellent - I had a delicious, perfectly-cooked burger, my wife had a magnificent "super greens" salad with salmon, and my sister had what she described as "the best salmon burger" she had ever had. Overall, it was an absolutely delightful experience!
Lately, McCloone’s has been changing their menu and introducing some interesting entrees as specials. I recently had the duck and friend had the cavatelli and both were excellent. My firecracker shrimp appetizer had just enough heat and the Boathouse burger is always consistently good.
My dining experience here was a first, and ill surely be back. I had the shrimp and calamari appetizers. The burger for main, and the pumpkin cheesecake for dessert. My drink was a mule and everything was perfect!! The ambiance was great, and our waitress was on point. Will recommend and will be back.
Waited 35m for table with reservations arrived early to avoid deciding between early Dinner or lunch menu.
Missed lunch .. Waitress was inattentive and missed order .
Would not go Back .. best part was the water view and zoo patrons.
Food was good and view was beautiful our waiter was very pleasant
Great meal, awful slow oblivious service!
The place itself is beautiful parking is a breeze the food was delicious but our server was outstanding!! Kind and polite the entire time.
Great place!! Delicious food and amazing view of the lake.
I think because it was such a beautiful day they were more crowded than they could’ve anticipated but overall our server Al did a good job it was our first time there and we did enjoy it I had chicken Melanae’s it was on the bland side but the charcuterie tray was exceptional we will go back
Such an amazing restaurant! Would definitely go back.
Excellent service, and the manager took the time out to check with us how is everything, which is a plus.
We sat down to a sticky, dirty table and made it 12 minutes with no one coming to our table, so we got up and left.
