“Very average food and atmosphere”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Nothing went wrong. The staff was lackadasical and not very interested in their patrons. Won't be returning there.

“Tasty and Delightful”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

An excellent restaurant for smoked meats (ribs, chicken), wraps, burgers. The soup of the day is always good and hot. Portions are generous and the staff are friendly. Beer (tap) is reasonably priced. Cozy place.

“Great staff”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

The staff at The Rooster Cookhouse make you feel so welcomed. They are very friendly and they take pride in the food and service the restaurant provides. The food is very good, will go back there again.

“A surprise gem, right here in Trenton.”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

I drive by this place almost every day, and I finally decided to take the plunge and took my family to Rooster Cookhouse. We were not disappointed.

The inside is a cross between a local cozy diner with friendly regulars having a nice meal, and a local pub with a few regulars sitting at the small bar area enjoying a beer. It's nothing fancy, but has a nice atmosphere. Parking is in the rear (shared with the bowling alley, I believe).

The food was outstanding. Big portions. Small prices. We spoke to 2 different waitresses that night and they both were most helpful and made us feel very welcome.

The only thing this place needs helps with is with their dessert menu. They don't have one. That's right, they have nothing for dessert whatsoever. (At least we never seen it, and nothing was offered.)

With all that being said, we all agreed that we will definitely be going back to Rooster Cookhouse on a regular basis.
