Went here for lunch with a coworker the other day. It was a beautiful day out and I wanted to sit on the patio. We couldn't get a patio seat but did sit along the sidewalk. I ordered fish tacos that were absolutely amazing. The hand cut fries were delicious too. I ordered the famous lobster roll for my mom... More

We ordered a shrimp cocktail and a pizza for starters. The Margharita pizza was hand tossed with some fresh basil and melted in your mouth. Nice sized shrimp with fresh horseradish sauce-wow! I ordered sausage stuffed banana peppers with marinara and melted cheese. It was fresh, spicy and terrific. My wife had a Lobster Quesidilla, which was LOADED with REAL... More

Roland's in the heart of The Strip serves fresh oysters, clams and the best lobster roll in the city. Pair any of those with a great selection of drafts and you can't go wrong. Also, some of the best Bloody Marys you'll find anywhere. A full menu of seafood dishes rounds out a perfect dining experience.

The lobster roll here is one of my favorite items. I really enjoy the quality of food and also the service is good.

Always good for being able to be seated on a Saturday night without wait. Service was good, food was average. I had the lobster roll and I believe I had the best meal. Others had seafood stew which was a little to spicy (this was mentioned on the menu so really our fault for not noticing that). One had lobster... More

First time visit and was not really thrilled, although my lunch date was happy with her meal. Pros: I like the atmosphere and was able to catch some of the Steelers game on a huge screen at the same time. My meal was the clam chowder and it was very tasty but only warm when served. My friend's french onion... More

We brought 8 people for lunch. We arrived early around 11:45 on the day after Christmas. We ordered drinks and appetizers with no problem. Everyone at the table received their meal except for the 3 kids who ordered pizzas. Everyone at the table finished their meal and the kids were still waiting. Unacceptable!! Nick the waiter was a fantastic server... More

We were SO DISAPPOINTED that Roland's was closed on New Years Day- we came all the way across the state to eat there as it is one of our favorite eateries in the 'Burgh. Pretty much everything we've eaten at Roland's has been delicious. We love the different varieties of mussels; last time we got them in some sort of... More

I was reluctant to take our friends here based on the mixed reviews. However, wow they exceeded expectations. Took 4 adults and 4 teens and everyone was very happy. The Bloody Mary's were excellent, the muscle pot was huge (meal for 2) and incredibly fresh, the lobster roll was perfect, chicken Cesar salad was enough for 3 people, buffalo chicken... More
