A delicious lunch! We both had the crab hash and loved it. We split the Roos-tart and it was amazingly good.

We will be back, for certain!

The food was cooked perfect. I ordered eggs yolk broken and fried hard and it was done exactly right which I never get when eating out. My daughter had pancakes with strawberries and everything including strawberries were fresh and tasty. Our server was friendly and relayed my preferences clearly to the kitchen staff. Overall, I would eat here regularly!

Great ambiance. Cheerful staff. We were a title underwhelmed. The brioche French toast was a little mushy in the middle, tasteless sausage patties, large portion of eggs. Great coffee and freshly squeezed OJ.

The food was delicious and the Lemon Berry Crush was FANTASTIC! The service was good but not outstanding ... We had to ask for butter and syrup when we ordered waffles (smh) at least twice and when the checks came they were set at the edge of the table (stacked on top of each other) and the waitress walked away. Overall we had a very good time and the food was worth the trip to Annapolis. We will return.

Food and service was very good but the table next to us was usually loud for no reason. They were almost yelling loudly talking to each other making it difficult for us to hear ourselves talking.

The food is consistently delicious and delivered as ordered . The service was attentive very polite and a good representative of the Iron Rooster brand. The atmosphere is classic Naptown and spotlessly clean.
I made my reservation on Open Table and requested seating in the lounge area. In the past I’ve found that establishment usually accommodates advance reservation seating requests if customer traffic allows. My party was not seated in the requested area, understandable, considering it was a Friday before a Naval Academy Football weekend.

We were in the tent outside for breakfast, it was a nice day, but the generator from a nearby restaurant was very noisy. They also didn’t seem to be very accommodating for requests. What restaurant in this day doesn’t carry skim milk?

Went for the Chicken Pot pie which we had before and is great. Was lied to and told that’s a winter Mente item o ly and they never had it in the summer. We had it in the summer numerous times, only time we visit Annapolis. Had a chicken dinner with spaghetti. Tasted horrible and spaghetti was cold. One person in our party had the chicken and waffles and even that was not up to par with possibly twice fried chicken and cold waffles. With all the options to eat in Annapolis I’m sad to say it will be awhile before we might give them a second chance.

Must get the pop tart!! It was amazing! Husband and I both got breakfast dishes even though we went for dinner and we would both order again. I got the biscuits and gravy, he got the crab hash. The drinks very good as well.

We went to enjoy the weather in Annapolis and decided to have breakfast here. The restaurant is great but I felt like the service was not. Or a server was very nice but we were the only people not really getting our food and we were not checked on regularly for refills or anything. Are there servers were much better at the tables around us. And I felt that my food was a little on the cool side when it was presented. Not really that hot. This is the first time that I didn’t thoroughly enjoyed my visit at iron rooster

First time back in Annapolis since I moved to Europe 2 years ago, and the Iron Rooster did not disappoint! Fantastic avocado crab salad with a spicy Old Bay Bloody Mary welcomed me back to Maryland in classic eastern shore style.

What a fantastic lunch we had - our first time at the Rooster. The crab hash is to die for and my mom had the ham bendict - also very delicious. One of the best bloody mary's that I have had in a restaurant in a long time! YUM!

Would definitely recommend. Wasn't expecting the food to be so good. I actually came without an appetite but finished my whole plate due to how good the cornmeal waffles and chicken were.

Also, the drinks were stiff (to my liking) and the ambience surrounding the restaurant is vibrant if you're considering staying out after dinner.

Service was awful! The waiter was ok, he can’t control how slow the kitchen is . They forgot out bar drinks , never got our appetizer, finally got our dessert to go since it was already a 2 hour ordeal.

My 13 year old and I went to Iron Rooster for the first time to celebrate his birthday. We shared the Breakfast Nachos, a bowl of fruit, and an Oreo Pop Tart. The Breakfast Nachos had a great flavor with a ton of toppings and all of the ingredients seemed very fresh, however they were actually cold and I think they were supposed to be hot. When I say cold, I don’t mean right from the refrigerator cold, but definitely room temperature. The chips also seemed a little stale, in my opinion. The homemade Oreo Pop Tart was AMAZING & the fruit was fresh. I do wish they had a Latte or other specialty coffee option instead of just regular coffee, but that is more personal preference. Our waitress was absolutely awesome and gave us our Pop Tart on the house with a candle when she found out it was my son’s birthday. Overall, it was a nice meal & we would definitely come back for a Pop Tart, but unfortunately I wasn’t blown away by our Breakfast Nachos, which is a bummer because I have heard so many great things about the food at Iron Rooster. Not sure if we will be back for a full meal or not.
