Who We Are

The name Roger, just like many of the names throughout The Ameswell Hotel, is a nod to the aeronautics community right in our neighborhood. Roger is derived from the origins of flight communication when R was signaled back as communication confirmation in Morse Code, meaning “received”. As comms evolved, the confirmation became Received Order Given, Expect Results - or R.O.G.E.R., for short.

This history is woven into our approach here at Roger - you can always expect results from our team, and the Roger Logo even has the Morse Code at its base.

The Ameswell and Roger continue to build on the use of modern technology by blending high-tech and high-touch into the whole dining experience. It’s rocket science.


Contactless order and pay is available at every seat in our restaurant, creating an on-demand dining experience. At Roger, you choose your own adventure - start a tab and add on food and drinks as the night continues. No more having to wait for a server and a bill to check out all of the other spaces and activities we have to offer, including our Airstream bar, table shuffleboard, lawn games and fire pits.

Roger uses local tech, such as BEAR Robotics’ autonomous food service robots to optimize operations, while bringing a little high-tech spunk. Plus, with a robot busing your table, you can be sure that our guests have our full attention.

With Roger’s use of cutting-edge technology, you know your order will come out to your exact specifications. If you order your steak medium rare, our culinary team will use our kitchen technology to ensure it comes out exactly like you envisioned.


We’ve curated a series of local vendors that share our core value -- sustainability. Roger sources high quality produce, dairy, meat, seafood and more to ensure that our guests enjoy some of the freshest (and greenest) ingredients NorCal has to offer.
