Blue Rooster Cafe is a very cozy cafe that serves locals in the area. Great to grab a coffee and chat with friends from the neighborhood. But it's not so great for breakfast. The country fried steak was a greasy piece of battered flesh. The potatoes are frozen patties you'd find a McDonald's. The muffins are served cold from a... More

I have not had a bad meal here, it's just that I have never had a great meal either. The restaurant is close to my in-laws and it is convenient for them.... so we go. We have had breakfast, lunch and dinner. The menu is extensive with plenty of choices. Just don't expect it to be the Prime Rib.

We found this as we were going by, nice decor, order at counter, breakfast was very good. Home fries were very Chrispy. This is also where you can order wine, beer or cocktail. Jazz music playing in the background. Would go back.

If you can handle European style seating/closeness you want to stop here. I have heard such good things from locals. I needed breakfast and decided to hit this place. Once I saw chicken and waffles on the menu I decided I could not leave without trying it and I was not disappointed. My friend had the nola quiche/omelette and said... More

Terrific dinner Friday evening and the fried Brussels sprouts are to die for, crunchy with a hint of salty goodness. Everything was cooked very well and the friendly service was outstanding. We love this locally owned restaurant!

On our way to Sandy Point Park for the day, didn't want to start out with fast food. Blue Rooster has a great breakfast and lunch menu. Honey Suckle iced Latte really hit the spot on a hot and humid day.

Stopped here on our way home from vacation at the shore. We were lucky to stumble on it. The breakfast was delicious, hot and reasonable. The restrooms were clean and nice. Tucking this spot away for future visits.

Stopped by with my peeps and had a quick dinner. Fish tacos and Caesar salad were on the menu and they were tasty. The salad was crisp and I had them add the chicken and the fish tacos were cooked and presented nicely. Overall, a nice local place with honest food.

I came for dinner here (served Weds-Sun) and had a wonderful meal. Very creative food cooked well. Came back for breakfast and wasn't as wowed. The frittata was dry and overcooked and the home fries -billed as "with onions"- were potato wedges with a few flecks of onion here and there. I am home fries freak, so my expectations were... More
