Eating breakfast at the Iron Rooster was so delicious! The pop tart (cinnamon and sugar) was to die for, and the Chicken Benny was amazing--and plenty of food for leftovers. We loved our waiter Luis and the service was great. The ambiance left a little to be desired since we were in the outdoor tent, but it was heated and not too bad. I would definitely go back to Iron Rooster, especially after COVID when restaurants open up more.

There was a mouse running around in which the manager ignored because she told us the building is old......this is unacceptable!!

Chicken sandwich and veg burger were pretty good. But the salad was mostly lettuce and I had to ask for dressing. (Management did refund the cost of the salad). The apple tart for dessert was good. Service was poor, had to ask another waiter 3 times for assistance. Ambiance was not inviting. Table near the door kept getting cold air blasts when opened.

The Iron Rooster has taken advantage of its location and set up tables in the former parking spaces inside a tent. This had added lots of available space and gives diners (like my party) the option of dining in a more open location.

The menu and service were, as always, excellent!

My husband and I ordered the avocado toast thinking it would be a small piece, we were wrong! 2 huge slices of bread with the freshest toppings - easy to say it was the best avocado toast we’ve ever had. I’ll be dreaming about it until next time!

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.

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!
