    This was my first time visiting the Iron Rooster. I had family out of town, so we decided to give a try. My brother said his Egg Benedict was the best ehe ever had. My husband and I had the regular eggs, grits and pancakes and fresh squeezed ok. Other members had waffles and Chicken strips. All were good.

    We were seated quickly (we had a reservation). We ordered a pop tart for the table that was yummy!That came out pretty fast as well as our drinks. But the time between the pop tart and our actual meals took longer than expected. We were surprised as it seemed less busy than when we first arrived. The food was pretty good. The chicken in the “chicken and french toast” was a bit dry and weirdly enough they only gave one slice of French toast with three pieces of chicken. All in all it was okay. I’ve been to Iron Rooster before and my previous experience was much better.

    Iron rooster never misses! Good thing because the staff was limited on this day which was surprising since it was Preakness weekend. The pop tarts were amazing and our bartender mixed very good drinks. The crab hash was so filling and satisfying the perfect way to start the day!

    My Rancher’s Benedict came out cold and incomplete. The eggs were broken and smeared across the plate when he sat the plate down. He gave it to me and left. When he came back, i had to tell him how terrible this looked. It was missing my fried green tomatoes and garnishes. It was literally broken poached eggs on an English muffin. The home fries were burned as well. After waiting 30 minutes for a remake, it looked like a totally new plate but no accommodation or apology was given for the incorrect and incomplete plating. Poached eggs SHOULD not take 30 minutes especially if it is a remake. It should’ve been made priority to complete. I came to celebrate my grandmother’s 92nd birthday and I’m grateful that she was satisfied with her food. She was just happy to be out of the house that she didn’t really notice that our server didn’t visit during most of her meal and only came by after 30 minutes to drop off my new plate. We didn’t have silverware and because he never came back, i had to get up to go get some. When asking about the special pop tart of the day, he said you didn’t have any specials for the day. When i got up to get our own silverware, I saw a large sign with the specials listed…..after i had already begrudgingly ordered the standard pop tart. We arrived at 11:15 and only 2 other tables in the restaurant. I felt like we were held hostage between having to flag down server for boxes twice, asking for the check, him circling back and forgetting and then taking more than 10 minutes to come back with my credit card. We didn’t leave until 1:45pm, which is ridiculous for a table of two for breakfast food. No manager checked on us. No acknowledgement or apology. NOT SATISFIED!!

    Service was slow as it took an half hour to get an appetizer, the manager took care of it and it was on the house so all was forgiven. I reality the Service was slow but the taste of the food made it well worth it. The salmon frittata was great, the shrimp and grits was blahh, like most , nothing to write Home about. The breakfast nachos & lemon tart were also well worth it.

    Let me first say our Server was great! The rest of the staff needs training on greeting tables even if they are not theirs. Or at least acknowledging that the guests have not been greeted. Tried to get a Servers attention (who was serving the table right next to ours) but she complained went out of her way to avoid us. Our food took long. We only ordered a basic breakfast. Again had to wave someone over who happened to be a manager. Basic greeting skills would have fixed this whole scenario but it’s clear they don’t work as a team.

    My husband and I love Iron Rooster and we have been to all of the locations in Maryland. What I like about the McHenry Row is that we can reserve a table. The service is great, the staff is courteous, and we enjoy the food. This location hasn’t been too crowded, so we always enjoy our meal and sit and chat for a bit. Love this location best.

    Came up from Richmond for a girls weekend We had a brown sugar pop tart it wasn’t bad but would’ve gotten something different. 2 of us ordered the breakfast combo and was told the pancakes were better than waffle not true they were so dense and dry they were cracking. The grits were good. 2 of us ordered the chicken benny and it was delicious! Best chicken by far. Would order the hollandaise with it instead of the gravy though if we ever come back. The sausage had no flavor. Service was extremely slow and not attentive and it wasn’t that busy. Overall good but would order differently next time.

    Very slow service! We waited for our water glasses to be refilled. Our order was not correct. We both got chicken and waffles with gravy on the side. 1 order of French fries instead of home fries Food came out no fresh fries and No gravy. Then she brings out a bowl of gravy for us to share! We had to ask for 2 spoons to use in shared bowl French fries came out after we complained Took forever to get out check and to go boxes Finally asked the Manager in charge to get us correct items we needed so we could go!

    Awful. The kitchen was drastically slow. We ordered alcoholic beverages that never even showed up. Our chicken waffles came out late, without the gravy. When we touched the potatoes they were freezing. Not even warm. We had to ask for silverware at this time. When they did come we opened them up and the forks had egg yolk dried on them, clearly not cleaned. Other then the waitress constantly apologizing the experience was very poor and I would never go back there.

    I would to tell you about the experience but honestly there wasn’t any. I will not go back to this location. It was very lackluster at best. We ended up here because the other brunch spot we wanted to go was booked. We honestly might as well went home. The service was clearly not interested/ doesn’t like her job. She was not friendly at all. Despite the place being basically empty the food took FOREVER. perhaps because they are understaffed but who knows. It almost felt uncomfortable in there where we were ready to go ASAP. won’t be going back to this location.

    Excellent brunch! We live at the bottom of MD and stopped here on our way to Jersey. Breakfast was delicious and the service was great! Oreo french toast was so good, hubs really enjoyed! I had the chicken and french toast and it was so flavorful and delicious. Hands down the best part is their sausage. I love flat sausage and it was probably some of the best I’ve had. We split a strawberry cheesecake pop tart and it was pretty good too. A lot more dough than I wanted, would have preferred more filling. But overall worth trying! We will for sure be back!
