We went to Rollie's Wharf, on a Thursday night, especially to hear the Celtic music played by visiting musicians. The meals we ordered were fine, though they took quite a while to arrive, as the dining area was crowded. Eventually, the fiddlers and guitarists began, but it impossible to hear them clearly, as loud conversations continued unabated. If the pub... More

i have eaten at this restaurant several times over the past few years, and with the exception of one or two times, would have to say that the food is consistently good pub food - really enjoyed the Alfredo in particular and the fabulous home fries. i do think the service could be improved (the servers are very pleasant and...

My wife and I recently enjoyed 2 very good meals at Rollie's -- despite our initial reluctance to go there given the other reviews posted here. We both chose stir-fry entrees at our first visit and fish and chips at the second; both meals were very good and portions were very generous. Warm gingerbread dessert with caramel sauce was OUTSTANDING.... More

Thursday night about 8 pm is the time to be at Rollie's Wharf. The food and drink are incidental. The treat is the unamplified down east musicians. Some times as many a 25 fiddle players, piano, and a host of other instruments from spoons - accordion - tap dancing in a chair! Playing jigs, reels, waltzes, etc. The range of... More

Had steak and lobster here on my final night in Nova Scotia. Worst meal of my trip, steak was so bland and rubbery I couldn't even eat it, and if it's possible, they managed to screw up the lobster. Terrible atmosphere and terrible food.

The environment inside Rollie's is great, all wood and glass, looking over the harbor and wharf. The waitress was very friendly and the service was great. The menu was very overpriced and the portions were small. The food wasn't that great tasting either. Salads do not come with garlic bread, which was a surprise to me because of the high... More
