Food was underwhelming, service was prompt but soup served without a spoon, they forgot my husband’s beer. Don’t know what happened between when the restaurant opened and now, but quality has gone downhill.

Once again, this place doesn't disappoint. We go 2-3 times per year when we are in town for lacrosse tournaments. The rooster bites to start were a hit. Boys had the waffle burger, which they said is one of their favorite burgers ever. The steak with chimichurri sauce is unreal. This was a five star meal without the giant pop tart!

This was our 1st time here though we've walked by often. Our midweek lunch was great especially as we could hear one another easily and have a leisurely lunch. This place has lots of natural light and is pleasantly outfitted. You can have breakfast all day long, so most of us tried the classic eggs benedict which were cooked just right with Canadian bacon. The side of hash browns were crispy, not oily as some can be, and had no onions, which we all preferred. The veggie burger was tasty and satisfying, and a grilled chicken sandwich with aioli sauce hit the spot. The fries that came with the sandwiches were crisp and tasty. Best of all--we had great service and never felt rushed.

The chicken app was drowned in a high-sodium sauce. The quality of the meat was lower than fast-food. My dogs eat better than I did at this restaurant for less money. I was drinking so much water that night from the salt in this meal. Absolutely awful!

My daughter and I were in Annapolis for the US Sailboat Show. We were excited to try the Iron Rooster. Sadly, we came away slightly disappointed. My daughter loves chicken noodle soup and this soup did not disappoint. Definitely the heartiest chicken noodle soup around. The broth was both rich and slightly briney. We both agreed the soup was the highlight of the meal. I ordered the salmon salad. While appealing to the eye, the salmon had zero flavor. My daughter ordered the cakes on cakes (crab cakes, fried green tomatoes resting on corn cakes. The crab cakes were nice; but, the fried green tomatoes clearly had been fried several hours earlier. They were tough as leather and tasted not much better. All in all we were left disappointed by the dinner.

This place is your favorite of my wife and I and is well worth the wait if you get there when it’s busy. Reservations are a must and I’ve never had a bad meal in my 6 visits. The homemade pop tarts are an absolute must when you eat here.

Food and service were great as always. The only issue we had was that we were inundated by flies and and with two kiddos that freak when they see bugs, it was not pleasant. I understand it is somewhat unavoidable this time of year and with the door being opened so often, it just made for an unpleasant experience.

I was really disappointed with the service and the food, so much so that I spoke with a manager, Chris, the day after our experience, 7/12. He said that he was going to talk to the general manager and get back to me, and no one ever did. Spent over $100 on pancakes and waffles for me and 4 kids. Our guest of honor, my 14 yr old niece received her meal so late, order was wrong, that we had finished eating. Waitress never offered to bring her fruit or something to eat while waiting. Two of my kids meals were missing an item, strawberries and whipped cream. When my niece's meal finally came, there was no apology. Was not at all the experience my friends had talked about when recommending your restaurant.
