McLoone’s Asbury Grille Restaurant Review: Ocean waves, a sandy beach, sunset and moonrise. As if these enticements weren’t enough, restaurateur Tim McCloone’s appealing boardwalk café also turns out tasty and original dishes to be enjoyed under umbrellas outdoors or on high stools in air-conditioned comfort indoors. On the menu are bourbon clams, littlenecks with salty country ham, charred corn, and Bliss potatoes on crostini awash in a honey-bourbon broth. Steaks are topnotch, especially the marinated skirt steak served with a Mediterranean couscous salad, with watermelon relish and a goat cheese and Sauvignon Blanc demi-glace. The wine list is judiciously constructed with a range of affordable choices. Service can be slow when the place is rocking, which is pretty much every summer weekend night.
