“Alex’s is run by a wonderful Greek family and has been a part of Rolla for many years. They have pizza, gyros, and so much more. Like Maid-Rite this is where locals go before the home football game or after church on Sunday. Offers beer on tap and in bottle with a limited bar and wine selections. ”

“A little rough around the edges but great food, local bands and the working man’s bar. Known for their HUGE tenderloins, loaded baked potatoes and breakfasts. Large selection of alcoholic beverages and I hear their Sunday morning Bloody Mary is tops! ”

Steakhouse
$$$
“Great steaks. Service and Sides sometimes are not up to the steak standard. But, it is a favorite in the area. If you are looking to host a huge group, this is the only place big enough in the area”

Restaurant
“This place has wonderful food and drink – a bit pricey but worth it. Located in downtown Rolla they have the freshest sea food around – really. My son-in-law is from Vermont and can’t believe the seafood here is better than at home. Their Shrimp and Grits is popular. When we go I get their rib-eye – it is EXCELLENT and my husband often gets their lambchops (superb) or Shrimp Po Boy. I recommend any of their salads (in Wedge salads alone they have three choices!). IF they have the special appetizer of tuna and won tons with slaw – take it. They are amazing!!!!! ”

Ice Cream Shop
“Although Soda and Scoops opened only last year, they do a wonderful job at creating a 50s-type environment! Love the turquoise decor, too! They have fantastic, high-quality ice cream and highlight monthly specials. One of my favorites is the "Exhausted Parent" ;-).”

Café
“This is located in a pharmacy. However, off to the side, in a warm setting, with great drink offerings and pastries, they also serve sandwiches, etc for lunch and lite dinners.”
