Food is very good and the menu is diverse. This restaurant is pub like with an active bar scene, mostly sports. The interior needs a face lift and a lighting upgrade. Service has been between good and excellent depending on server of the night. Go there often, experience the variety, but have the signature steak at least once.

25 years and we keep going back. Great bar! The restaurant has great food, although we do prefer to eat at the bar. Wonderful soups (Seafood bisque!). Great burgers and terrific house steak. Everything is always done well!

Runyon's has been around forever! The staff is excellent and really tends to the table. Booths are all private so you can't see everyone else and you can hear and enjoy the conversation at your table. Food is good pub food, wine list could use a few good choices... but who goes to a pub for good wine, lol!

Have stopped here on several occasions after driving home sober. It is the most friendliest neighborhood bar and restaurant to enjoy. We are strangers here but the customers always are outgoing but respectfull. No agenda but friendly smiles. Food is great here as well.

Step into Runyon's and you'll quickly forget about the cars cruising along Merrick Road just outside. Half of Runyon's is a bar large enough to accommodate two or three softball teams and a popcorn machine. The other half is an informal seafood restaurant and grill with cozy booths. There are plenty of options if you just want something to nosh on with your beer; not just wings and chili, but more exotic choices like kung po squid and fried brie. A signature item is the pizetta, prepared with clams, buffalo-style chicken, spinach or pesto, stone-baked on a seasoned pita. There is also a slew of seafood, steaks, burgers, sandwiches and pasta selections, all satisfactory enough for former Newsday/Long Island Press columnist Ed Lowe to mention the place in his essays whenever he gets the chance. -- J.
