Good food; hearty portions

This was the closest restaurant to my hotel so I visited there several times during my stay. The roast beef sandwiches and side orders are delicious. Service is quick and friendly. My only complaint is that they don't deliver. There were menus at the hotel stating free delivery, but when you... read more

Great place for the family to get a roast beef and cheese, fries, chicken wings, burgers and more. Fresh lemonade and cold beer also available. Conveniently located off the bely parkway, across from the water. Parking lot and street parking available. Don't mind the line, it will move quickly. Never a bad meal, worth the trip.

I live in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, NY. One of the best areas bar none for delicious dining. I recently re-discovered Roll-N-Roaster Restaurant, a place I would frequent as a teenager. The food here is still amazing. They have hundreds of items to choose from. I ordered the Roast Beef Sandwich on a soft roll, fries and to die for lemonade.... More

When you go stick to the basics. Rare Roast Beef with Cheese, Fries with Chees and a lemonade. The perfect meal. I've been going here for 30 years now. Mix in some onion rings and/or some mozzarella sticks and I hope I live another 30 years so I can keep coming back for more.

Great place to go for roast beef sandwiches. The services is fast, the food excellent. Always a line when we go, but always a seat too. Love how you get free pizza when you spen over $35,but don't expect much. Pizza is plain thin crust and more of an appetizer. Great family place for all ages. Most likely expect to... More

Casual, fast and delicious food, and yes, with healthy options. My carnivorous husband enjoyed the Roll n Roaster Beef sandwich, rare. What made this place extra special is that we could order the meat prepared rare, medium or well done and the gravy is on the roll. Plenty of non-meat and healthy options were available. I have enjoyed the Manhattan... More

Took my nieces and nephew to RNR and we had a blast. Yummy food, clean decor. Nothing fancy, mind you, but it was good. The burgers are sooooo yummy. I really enjoyed the fried shrimp that tasted fresh. I would definitely go back...soon!

The food has always been excellent. One year (long ago) our three daughters wanted to take a couple special friends and each have their summer birthdays here. Why? Because none of my girls like birthday cake and they love the deserts here. Also they give kids balloons. Wow! And as others have mentioned, if you go over $35 (we certainly... More
