We moved out of MD almost two years ago, and going to Annapolis was always something we enjoyed doing. So when the opportunity came up to have a day in MD, we didn’t think twice about heading to Iron Rooster. It was right around lunch...More

Food was mediocre. Ordered a pop tart and it didn’t come out early before the meal. Meals were not hot. Hamburger was undercooked. Mac and cheese was cold. Totally disappointing.

The Iron Rooster is the best place for a fail proof breakfast in Annapolis all day long. The wait staff are energetic and the menu selections will fit any taste. So sit with the locals and enjoy

Iron Rooster was a delightful find. In the place where Maria's used to be, the Iron Rooster has a barn like decor but with superb food. Try the cakes on cakes: crab cakes over fried green tomatoes over a thin pancake with corn relish. OUTSTANDING.
