Decidedly unexciting food. The steaks are good (used to be better), but the sides are bland at best. I must admit, they do know what medium rare means - a skill that seems to elude many a steak house in the area.

We try to go to Rolands one a year as we cottage in the area and live out of town. We have always enjoyed the food and the service. It is a little pricey but since we save this for special occassions we don't mind the price. We have never been disappointed in the quality of the foid or service

I celebrated my past birthday at Roland's with family, everyone had a delicious meal and we had exceptional service. I enjoyed it so much that I went on to go for dinner there the following evening with friends. Once again being served a wonderful meal by professional wait staff. I would suggest this restaurant to not only locals but friends... More

At here for a Christmas get together. The atmosphere and service were actually very good but the food was plain and tasteless. I had salmon with no flavor, rice with no taste, a tiny spoonful of veges. Caesar salad and carrot cake really delicious but could not make up for the tasteless main course. Too much money for the quality... More

Our meal wasn't awful but it certainly wasn't spectacular either. We expected "more" and was disappointed. The rolls were served up in cellophane. The bottled wine was less expensive than the house wine. The bathrooms were similar to those found in a legion. Casual fare at an upscale price.

We went there for dinner on Sat. night because we made reservations too late. The host that met us at the door was very friendly. Our waiter was kind of annoying, too much attention too much of the time. I found he wanted to get our service over with so he could leave. My mother in law ordered the pickeral... More

My boyfriend and I celebrated a very special anniversary here last night, our first time at Rolands and were extremely satisfied with our choice. We were seated by, I'm assuming the owner, which I always love to see. My boyfriend had mentioned the occasion when making the reservation and we were seated at such a private little table that we...
