First time visit and was not really thrilled, although my lunch date was happy with her meal. Pros: I like the atmosphere and was able to catch some of the Steelers game on a huge screen at the same time. My meal was the clam chowder and it was very tasty but only warm when served.

Everyone at the table received their meal except for the 3 kids who ordered pizzas. Everyone at the table finished their meal and the kids were still waiting. Unacceptable!! Nick the waiter was a fantastic server... More

We were SO DISAPPOINTED that Roland's was closed on New Years Day- we came all the way across the state to eat there as it is one of our favorite eateries in the 'Burgh. Pretty much everything we've eaten at Roland's has been delicious. We love the different varieties of mussels; last time we got them in some sort of... More

I was reluctant to take our friends here based on the mixed reviews. However, wow they exceeded expectations. Took 4 adults and 4 teens and everyone was very happy. The Bloody Mary's were excellent, the muscle pot was huge (meal for 2) and incredibly fresh, the lobster roll was perfect, chicken Cesar salad was enough for 3 people, buffalo chicken... More

I couldn't enjoy my food due to the overpowering fishy smell in the place. Eat outside! I won't be going back...

FYI, come early for parking. Whether on-street or lot, it is difficult to find. The food was delicious, but service was sub-par. He wasn't fully engaged in his job, and our orders were messed up. I think if there was a better server, the experience would have been a lot better, but we still had a good time.
