Server was good. Food...meh. Crab cake sandwich was filler and a hard bun. Wife's mussels were okay. Plus side sausage banana pepper appetizer was great and friend's fish sandwich was good. Come for the drinks, but don't order food.

I have been going to Roland's for about 17 years, and they are consistently a great place to eat and hang out with friends! The lobster roll has remained delicious for all of these years, and on my recent visit I tried the lobster quesadilla,...More
