We are Sunday regulars of Heather’s (bartender) and she is always amazing! She makes great cocktails, remembers how and what we like to eat an is alway so happy and pleasant and never seems like she’s in “the weeds,” even if the place is slammed. Wish all servers could be like Heather we always leave there happy and having had a great experience!!

The Chicken and Waffle and the Chicken Benny were delicious. The waitstaff was friendly. She checked on us without being intrusive. Know what I mean? Her timing was ideal. My friend and I sat outside; the weather was delightful — sunny with a pleasant breeze. It was early (10a), so it was also quiet. A lovely experience for a long-awaited catch-up!

I’ve been to the Iron Rooster many times (mostly the HV location) and was extremely disappointed in my experience at McHenry Row. The waitress had a terrible attitude, the kitchen was out of multiple items that we wanted to order, and it took almost 45 minutes for our food to come out. I understand if the location was short staffed, however the quality of the food was also disappointing. This is one of my favorite restaurants so please - do better.

Our server Jailyn (sp) was an incredible part of the experience. She was a wonderful server with great energy, a kind attentiveness, and delicious menu recommendations. She was enough of a reason alone to return. Conversation with the manager and a chef prior to be seated was also extremely pleasant. The food was amazing, especially the brown sugar Roostart. Also, the mason jar of bacon and the candied bacon were both highly enjoyable.

We can’t wait to return. Thank you, Jailyn!!!

Food was really fresh! They’re running on 50% occupancy which I LOVE! We didn’t feel crowded by strangers and totally enjoyed everything. Our server, I think her name was Janell or Janae, was AMAZING! She went above and beyond.

Our waiter was great but the length of time it took to receive our food was way longer than usual. Even our waiter made comment that we should’ve had our food before it was received. Overall.. great service.

There was one server / hostess and service was pretty slow. We received pancakes with no syrup. Coffee without sugar, and had to wait until we could finally get her attention to receive these items. The shrimp and grits were not the usual. This was my first visit to Mchenry Row location I usually frequent Canton. It wasn’t the same at all.

Despite the challenges surrounding COVID-19 my wife and I enjoyed our brunch. Expect a limited menu due to covid; I wanted the Crab Benedict but I was just as happy having the yummy crab bowl; check out the menu to learn more.

It was my mother in law’s 65th birthday and less to say, she won’t forget such a horrible experience. I can say the manager did try to fix the situation afterwards. I traveled from Iowa to Baltimore to share this occasion with her and I was very disappointed. My chicken came out Burnt! So did my son’s. My mother in law steak was so small and taste less. For $22 you expected to get at least 6 oz! After such horrible food, the waitress dropped a plate and it broke on my nephew’s phone. When the plate broke syrup splattered all on their clothes. Luckily it wasn’t white. I really expected much more for this restaurant. I’ve visited other franchises over the states and never had such a poor experience.

Fast service and great food as always. I was bothered that I saw servers with masks that didn't cover their noses and the managers said nothing to them though.

Urghhh! The food quality has diminished since the last times I have been to the Iron Rooster. The candied bacon pop tarts were undercooked and had an obnoxious amount of icing and whipped cream. It was so unappealing. The crab has was pretty decent, but the shrimp and grits had something weird going on with the sauce. Although the restaurant was pretty empty, it took about 10 minutes to be greeted and 35 minutes to receive our food. The waiter was unenthused and super blah. I wouldn't return. There are too many places in the area with fantastic service and food.
