    Meal was great. Southern traditional menu I had grilled pork chop, loaded mash potato and collars with honey corn bread. Real sweet Iced tea. Others had flank steak or catfish and crab cakes. As down home as any meal I have had in years. The restaurant is huge and open and comfortable. The waitress was pleasant and attentive. Prices more than reasonable for the quantity and amount of food. Highly recommend.

    It took 40 minutes to get our drinks from the bar. The bartender looked like she was doing inventory. I asked our waitress after 20 minutes and was assure they were “working on them.” After 35 minutes I flagged down the manager because we didn’t see our waitress and he did not seem concerned, saying merely he would check on them. Mine tasted like it had zero alcohol while my friend’s was so strong she could barely drink it. The second round came within a few minutes but the third round (which was an exact re-order of the second round) took an additional 20 minutes even though I saw it sitting on the end of the bar for most of that time. And while i had ordered a simple white rum and diet Coke - what arrived last was a spiced rum and possibly regular coke. I had told the waitress during the second round it can’t be spiced rum, must be white whatever the brand. Definitely won’t return. Only go if you’re not thirsty and have 2.5 hours to spare.

    Been to Roger Browns numerous times and the food is always good, but service has always been mediocre at best. Tonight as an example, they bought drinks out to all but 1 in our party and we had to ask twice for it. A beverage was ordered from the bar and our dinner was out before they bought it. The excuse was that the bar was busy. The entire restaurant and bar area was not even a 1/4 full. Food came out in a good time frame but not all was bought at once. Had to ask for utensils and napkins for all of us. As I posted in the beginning, food is good but service is sub par. Place really has potential but they need to step up the customer service and attention to detail.

    My wife and I were at this establishment on 07/30/22 for dinner. I have to honestly say, the food was great as the catfish was even better. The staff was great and the drinks were also amazing. So far this seems to be, the only restaurant in Portsmouth Virginia with great service, food and staff. The following day on 7/31/22 wanting a good breakfast, I went to Yolks on us, and boy was I sorry. Their staff could really learn a lot from Rodger Brown staff.

    We ate here today: party of four and we ordered a chips and cheese appetizer, sodas, a plain bacon cheeseburger, mushroom Swiss burger, a Cuban, and chicken tenders.. the meal ended up being around $91 with tip. The service and atmosphere was good and the place was clean but that’s about the best part of the visit. Our server was attentive and pleasant. The chips were stale, the burger patties were unseasoned, the Cuban was lacking in any real flavor - I could only tell the pickles were there by the texture and it was distinctly missing that mustard kick. You can tell the meal was made with the cheapest ingredients possible, but unfortunately the price was not commensurate with the quality of the ingredients. It would have been nice to have salt and pepper available on the table with the food being so plain. If this was a cheap meal I wouldn’t be commenting, but for almost a hundred bucks for lunch, this visit didn’t measure up.
