We went to Rooney's as our hotel was having a private event and couldn't have dinner there. We couldn't have been happier. The service, the view, the food, all were exceptional. Will def go back.

Went for Sunday Brunch and ordered Salad and Sandwiches. The food was mediocre at best. The food was not hot enough and they were served with some tasteless potato chips. The food was definitely overpriced for what you got. We will not be back.

We brought a big group here and were well taken care of and would be happy to come back. The food was good and the views are great--too bad it was a little cold to sit outside.
