While visiting my old home town for a family reunion we chose Rodney's for lunch. We were all disappointed. The entire restaurant had a fishy smell & we debated leaving. My sandwich was ok, but the coleslaw was warm and had an off-taste so I could not eat it. Fries were great. Beef was good, but everyone scraped the salt... More

The seafood and roast beef is always amazing. The rosie ( roast beef with mushrooms on texas toast and provolone melted under the broiler) is one of my favorite open faced sandwiches ever. The haddock au gratin and the scallop au gratin are out of this world.

Can't beat the piping hot breaded mushrooms order every visit. The Beef on Weck is a generous serving that melts in your mouth. Good atmosphere and service. Can't go wrong a neighborhood favorite.

Rodney's is an excellent choice for those visiting the Buffalo South towns. An unpretentious local place with a view!! The bar was full the Thursday afternoon of our visit. We went specifically for the fish fry which is now offered every day. Rodney's is always on my list of places to stop when I'm in the area. Service very good!

Rodneys was recommended by the staff at our hotel and they were right. Good food and good drinks. The kind of place where the locals go. Regular beer and some craft beers too. Three in our party had the Philly sandwich and I had The Josey Whales burger. A hamburger with bacon cheese bbq sauce and an Ionian runs on... More

We had a group of 4. We arrived about just after 5pm and had to wait about 30 minutes. We where seated in the bar area, which was very loud. Our waitress was nice and was able to answer all our questions and provide good suggestions. They served bread and butter. All of us had the fried fish, half or... More
