“The After-Theater Place to Be!”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

Rollies is a fun sports bar with a great, friendly atmosphere. Prices are reasonable, and the food is certainly good for a sports bar. Rollies caters and is a valuable asset to our community, as it certainly donates more than most other businesses to local non-profits. Earlier hours are good for families as well.

Thank you so much for taking the time to share. We're grateful to be here everyday, and would love to see you and your family here again sometime soon.

All the best,

“Foreigners welcome???”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

Ha! We arrived for dinner... the place seemed to be full of locals with enough staff... We waited... than walked through, trying to find a place to eat among the empty spots (communal tables and exterior deck), not knowing where to sit, trying to attract the attention of a staff member. Another couple arrived, did the same... We finally left... nobody ever bothered...

Hi Eveline, we're really sorry to hear you were never served! We understand why you'd be so frustrated to just leave. We try to get everyone at least a drink while they wait. It sounds as if options existed but did not suit your desires. (Communal tables/exterior deck) Lots of new friendships have been forged at those communal tables. Hopefully you'll try us again and we'll do a better job of greeting you, seating you, and treating you.
we do apologize we weren't able to serve you.

Best wishes,
The Rollie's Bar & Grill Team

“Walked out”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

Driving back from Ellsworth we were looking for a place to eat in Belfast, and figured based on other spots on the drive down to the waterfront, Rollie's looked promising.

It was so loud - at lunch on a Tuesday, you couldn't hear the person across the table from you. Not because there were a ton of patrons either - the music, which was OK to listen too - if it was not turned up to the max. We waited for 10 minutes looking at the menus, and except for someone who told us we could sit anywhere we wanted, no one came to the table. Not even to take a drink order. This place was not busy and this is no excuse.

At minute 11, with no service, we left.

Hey John -- We're really disappointed to read this, and wanted to reach out and apologize that no one came by to serve you. We understand why you got up and left, and we want you to know that we're going to be checking in with our staff to see what the problem was. We'd hate for this experience to keep you from ever coming back to actually have a meal and a drink with us. We're sure we can impress you, and hope you'll give us that chance sometime in the future.

Best wishes,
The Rollie's Bar & Grill Team

“My first time here”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

Well folks, I've lived near for 40 yr.s and I took my daughter out to lunch. I would have never stepped foot in this place back then. Everybody's mellowed. I couldn't decide so started with one of many beers & ales on tap. I ordered a taco salad, my daughter had a Philly Cheese Steak sandwich...both were huge & delish. The chili on my salad wasn't warm, but hey it was still good. Service was slow but so were we. The girls did a good job non the less. Place could use new flooring, wood I hope. It's a great bar and I spied a lot of Belfast businessmen there. I'll go there next Tues. for $1 Taco's & $5 Margarita's for sure. Belfast has come a long ways & I've been missing out!
