I visited Rogues Tavern a couple of weeks ago with a small group of friends to wish a coworker well on a new employment adventure. The staff was very accomodating and set us up in a comfortable place away from other visitors so we could relax and visit with our friend. It was a very convenient place with parking lot... More

I visited Rogue Tavern for dinner with work colleagues on a weekday night. The tavern is quite spacious and is probably bustling with sports fans over the weekend or during a major sporting event. This was clearly not one of those nights, as the place seemed pretty dead. We were just looking to enjoy dinner and having encountered a long... More 

Thank Markus1995
Management response:

As a local restaurant that takes a lot of pride in both its dinner specials as well as its overall atmosphere, this is upsetting to read. It sounds like you were looking for a different experience altogether, and it's disappointing that this expectation overshadowed your visit. We're especially honored to stand out in Birmingham, and I wish that you had... More

Visited for business..went straight to bar & was encouraged to order from server.. "told just wanted a beer"..had 4 bartenders working figured could pull a beer. Actually service was much more efficient.

Thank Byron P
Management response:

Byron, I'm sorry if we seemed a little out of it -- we usually suggest ordering from the servers to get a drink in your hand as soon as possible. I'm confident in our bartenders, and it sounds like they may have been working on prepping for a special event at that particular time. In any case, I apologize for... More

Thank goodness we found this place. Bham has a lot of vacant storefronts. But we found the rogue and it's a great place. Friendly people. Great service. Clean. Brunch menu looked great- plus they serve carafes of mimosas for $5. Wow. Lots of tv's and big screens. But if Alabama is on- you're watching Alabama - and don't ask for... More

Downtown in the Ham was great Saturday. Sunny, lots of art for the art walk, patrons jamming the bar and tables while cheering different teams for college football. Rogue was a little overwhelmed but bless the serving staff, they gave 100%. The pimento cheese sliders were tasty. Pitchers flowed. Hated we had to leave mid afternoon. Would do it again.

Thank Ray M
Management response:

Sounds like you had a perfect afternoon in Birmingham, Ray! Knowing that we could add to that is pretty special, and I'm even happier that you could join us when we were full-energy and cheering on our favorite teams. I appreciate the recognition for our hard-working staff -- we want to keep the drinks full and the plates piping hot,... More

We were looking for a bite to eat after work on a Friday while waiting for the traffic home to die down and stumbled into Rogue Tavern. We were greeted at the door by hostesses and seated immediately. Our waiter Chis was friendly, talkative, attentive, and informative. I ordered the Island Cobb salad and my date had the Rogue Burger... More

This sounds like such a great coincidence that we could welcome you in while traffic died down! It's always a good day when we can invite in some new faces, especially when our hostesses are on hand to ensure you immediately get the Rogue Tavern hello. Hopefully you'll be on this side of town during the next game -- we... More

I had thought this was just a local bar, but it is far from it. The food is great! Don't miss the pot roast and mashed potatoes. I have not had better anywhere. They also have live music later in the evening. The service and atmosphere are also winners. We always enjoy this place.

Thank Pamela H
Management response:

Pamela, we are a local bar, but we love that it feels like something bigger! I don't take it lightly that we're a winner in your book, and I'm overjoyed that you've joined us for our live music nights. I hope you've visited us again more recently, but in any case, I hope to see you again soon! Sincerely, Hayden... More

I'm writing a new review because while my previous trip to Rogue (and review) wasn't so good, I had a great experience last week. The service was very fast, and the food arrived so quickly, you'd have thought they saw us coming! But it was fresh, hot and delicious. The "Fresh Catch of the Day" sandwich has graduated from Tilapia... More

My sister and I were visiting Birmingham on a video shoot, and we needed a place to eat lunch with our crew. One of them suggested the Rogue Tavern and it turned out to be the perfect place to go. Two of us had salads (caesar and a goat cheese), and both were excellent. The other two had sandwiches which... More
