Between the menu and large list of specials, you will probably find something you like here at Romanelli's. We went for breakfast last week and both had chipped beef which was too salty. Not inedible, just noticeable. Normally I have an omelette and I've never been disappointed. Potatoes are nice with a little pepper and onion, bacon is good and... More

Love the vast menu, something for everyone. Always a nice atmosphere with good food and service. My favorite is the crab bisque.

My family went to this restaurant because it was the only one we saw along the main road. The inside was very nice but when it came to the service it was very poor. The waitress seems to be new because she was very inexperienced with our orders. The food was average. But, the poor service came when I went... More

Our breakfast was so bad today 7/2/14. No management to help the process, waiter not interested in the issue. Only one car in the parking lot was the big hint we ignored. Sticking to Sheas right down the street, always A* service and food, the wait is so worth it.

The menu has lots of choices, prices are not bad... Nice atmosphere. We had the cheese pizza. Pathetic sauce was sweet. I liked it but my bf thought it was too sweet.

We live down the street from this restaurant and have not been there since it was a BYOB when they first opened. I probably won't go back. We walked in and sat at the bar to have something to eat. I questioned the bartender about the food and specials and was told he didn't know the menu since he has... More

Stopped in for a quick bite. The food was ok, not great. Had Greek flatbread pizza and buffalo wings that were average. My husband got the crab cake early bird and he loved it.

Been there plenty of times for Drinks N Dinner. Never had the Special Prime Rib. Sorry it took me this long to order it. It was Fantastic, even the sides like the Mac-N-Cheese. Will order it again. Compliments to the Chef N Staff for the perfect night out. Always a Pleasure. Denise N Keith.

My husband and I took my sister-in-law and her husband there a few weeks ago for dinner, my husband and I were there once before and enjoyed it the first time, maybe a year ago. My salad was good and the wedding soup was good. The dinner though was horrible. Imagine all moisture being sucked out of the food even... More
