Stopped in here for lunch as we fancied a burger. Bit of a strange atmosphere and layout but could well be lively at night. Food was really greasy and not very good at all, none of us finished our burgers!

Very good food, heavy handed drinks, and nice atmosphere. Has a lot of HD televisions to watch sporting events. Can get a little crowded on Friday and Saturday nights.

We had a group of 12 traveling for business. Our food did not come out all at once. I was half-way through my dinner before my co-workers salad arrived. I had salmon which was very rare. The woman sitting next to me had salmon that was cooked all the way through. Since I like sushi, I ate it but I... More

This is a very large restaurant that can accommodate one or 100! A welcoming fireplace is in the front room that is cozy to sit by. Varied menu with some unique offerings. Although I came with a large group, our meals arrived promptly. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meals with only two complaints from our table of 7....coffee was luke... More

Another wonderful experience at Roger Browns. The food is always delicious and plenty of it, the home brew ale at $2 the best deal in town and service from Tara just superior. Bravo!

We were here for a private function. There were about 50 of us. We all tried different things. Everyone enjoyed what they ordered. The food was marvelous. The wait staff was great. They were attentive to all our needs.The She-Crab soup and pork chop dinners were big hits.

Went in for the first time today and was pleasantly surprised. Sports bars occasionally put too much into the "bar" side and not enough into the food. Buffalo Chicken Sandwich was amazing, and Ava was the best. Bright smile and friendly demeanor brought a ray of sunshine to a cold dreary day. This will definitely not be the last time... More

I went with a friend for brunch and we had the pancakes with chicken. Well let me testify that the taste of the chicken and pancakes should be against the law.

Been here numerous times and the food must depend on who is doing the cooking. They have awesome crab dip and drinks.

We stopped in for the large selection of beers on tap. Rodney "talked us into" the crab dip - which was to die for. We also had the dorn muffins with honey butter that were delicious. It was especially amgical to be able to sit outside for drinks on Feb 28th! Thanks for being so personable, Rodney!
