this palm bay institution came highly recommended!
i was told the wings and chicken pot pie were off the chart. i have never considered the word “dreamy” to describe a dish……. but the chicken pot pie was DREAMY. it defines comfort food. the crust alone….. visually beautiful, and tastes of a flaky croissant. once you get through that layer of heaven, down below is a perfect blend of the dreamy. the portions here are soooo generous. there is an option to start with a salad, and so to not be completely decadent, i did. robb had a classic reuben that looked inviting but i had my priorities.
great atmosphere, with a collection of airplanes in the rafters. it has a vibe, a really good vibe. i can imagine dinner there is wonderful as would be just hanging out in general. service is always a first draw and they have that down pat.
by the looks of their decorations, could be a great place to put on your halloween destination list.
this is good stuff!!!!!!
walking into rooney’s down in the palm bay area i already felt right at home. a group of regulars arranged themselves around the the horseshoe shaped bar made me think, “hmm i could hang out here”, with pool tables on one side and the dining area on the other.
we found our way to a high top between the bar and the booths as we were greeted by katrina, a peppy little server who knew her stuff. although she had plenty of other guests we had her full attention.
the specials sounded excellent but i had my eye on the hot sicilian sandwhich. if i had the room i could eat two of these pilled high with ham, pepperoni, bacon, tomato, lettuce, provalone and italian dressing served on a toasted sub roll. this is something i would refer to as “buttery goodness”. served with chips and macaroni salad i couldn’t ask for a better meal.
bry went the teriyaki wings with blue cheese and celery. these wings are like no others we’ve tried in a while. big, extra crispy wings with a thick sauce were enough to make us come get some if there’s ever to be a party at our house!
thanks katrina and rooney’s. you made my day!
