Ralph & Carrie Roeger / Semper Fi Bar & Grille

Ralph and Carrie Roeger, both U.S. Marine Corps veterans were inspired to create a place to honor veterans, active duty and first responders. As such, Semper Fi Bar & Grille was born in Woodstock, Georgia on August 9, 2015 – where the public is welcome and veterans are honored.

“We wanted to create a place where fellow veterans could relax and share their stories,” said Carrie Roeger, “and to honor those military families who have lost loved ones in the line of duty. We are also greatly honored by our first responders that put their lives on the line for us in our community and this is also just as much for them as well. That’s why we dedicate the third Thursday of each month to our First Responders with a discount on their meal.”

The couple strove to create a family friendly restaurant that focused on respect and quality food. A smoke-free environment, Semper Fi Bar & Grille has a museum-feel with historical military memorabilia donated by veterans and military families – from all branches of service – that adorns the walls for all to enjoy.

Since its inception, Semper Fi Bar & Grille has become known for its support of the military and veteran community. Now well known for its deliciously award winning burgers, the restaurant was voted Best Burger in Woodstock by The at the end of 2016 and 2020 Best American Restaurant in Around Woodstock Magazine. Semper Fi Bar & Grille currently offer carryout, curbside, delivery, patio and dine in service.
