IRON at Marcus Pointe -
Best Restaurants in Pensacola
It was my first time at IRON and I
was blown away with the incredible, interesting food, and perfect service. I had the cheese plate and red snapper main, both were delicious and beautiful. It is on the Marcus Pointe golf course, but far from country club food. It is pricey, but well worth it. I highly recommend and will definitely return."

The only knock and it's a weak one
at best is the location is at a golf course in a very secluded spot in Pensacola - so if you want to get some live music or bar hop afterwards then you are out of luck. But if you are looking to eat quality food from easily the most creative and talented chef not only in Pensacola but pretty much the gulf coast then look no further. Side notes - service is always great, mixed drinks are spot on, and a decent wine list."

The fried oysters were the best
I've ever had. They had fresh soft shell crab that came in live, not frozen like most places and was a very generous portion. The salmon dish was simple, served elegantly, and full of flavor. The grouper was served on organic blue corn grits and was so fresh and fluffy. The desserts were very unique, plated beautifully, and tasted so good! Service was fantastic and the hostess was so adorable and helpful. I will try to make this a regular spot to enjoy a very nice, well worth the price, destination for friends, dates, and special occasions."

First visit to Iron. New to
Pensacola, and looking to explore all the better local restaurants to find some favorites. Overall, food was very good. Chef offered us a "small bite" while looking over the menu. The "wanton" was over cooked/tough and greasy but the sauce was very tasty. Nice touch however. Cheese platter appetizer was good but lacked imagination. Appetizers good. Main course presentations were beautiful and of all the dishes we ordered the creole snapper was over the top excellent! Wine list was nice but wouldn't consider it notable. Will definitely add Iron to our list of "try again"."

The presentation is virtually
unmatched in Pensacola. The only place that compares is Type. The food and the staff make you feel special when you dine at Iron. "

Very good food & service. Loved
the oyster appetizer and plank wild salmon. Did not care for cobbler desert (too many seeds)"
Dined on 5/28/2014
The menu is consistently updated,
and the offerings are unique and very well prepared. My wife and I love to come here for special occasions, as this restaurant, while off the normal beaten path, can always be counted on for a great experience. Will definitely be back!"

The whole experience was amazing,
food, service, atmosphere, etc"
Dined on 5/17/2014
All the dishes were wonderful,
particularly the fish which was 'spot on'. Attentive service (but not intrusive)"
Dined on 5/17/2014
The food was wonderful and the
service was fantastic. This restaurant is truly a hidden gem in Pensacola. We appreciate that most of the ingredients used were consciously sourced (they even have their own garden) and you can truly taste the difference in the quality of the food. I highly recommend this restaurant and will be going back again very soon."

It was a nice dining experience.
The food was good. The staff was knowledgeable about the menu. Prices weren't too bad. The view would have been nice but it was dark out. "
Dined on 4/26/2014
Delicious food with unusual,
pleasant upgrades, excellent service, friendly staff, beautiful golf course views. All in all, the experience was what one hopes for when you go to a restaurant."

Iron is amazing. Food was
delicious, service was awesome. Can't wait to go back!"
Dined on 4/5/2014
This is a hidden gem, back by
Marcus Pointe golf course and away from the crowds and parking issues of downtown. I only gave a four star for Ambience since I remember the days when it was the old clubhouse and pro shop, but they have done a wonderful job of turning it into a comfortable dining spot. You can come in casually in jeans or dress up for date night as you might be mixed in with golfers finishing a round and grabbing one of the monstrous Kobe beef burgers. The food is very good with a fusion of flavors and a mix of locally grown (own garden right outside) and fresh fish and meats. The oysters for a starter are always a good bet. The mains vary and we typically favor the fish dishes. Dessert shouldn't be missed."
Dined on 3/29/2014
The food is unique and
presentations and service are very professional. If you get a table on the bar side of the restaurant it can be noisy and feel a bit busy, but the food overcomes those distractions."
Dined on 3/8/2014
The Iron has come a long way since
its opening. The changes actually make the front house much more appealing. The staff is attentive and gracious. The food is fantastic! And we have gluten allergies and vegan issues in our party- all accomadated without a skip! So rare to find in this small town. It has become my favorite restaurant in town."
Dined on 3/7/2014
Unbelievably good food. The new
menu added some spectacular items. I highly recommend Iron, as a truly FINE dining restaurant!"

IRON at Marcus Point have outdone
themselves with amazing food, presentation, energetic and knowledgeable staff. I look forward to many more experiences at IRON. 5 star all around. Highly recommended."

We heard so much about Iron we
couldn't wait to go. We made our reservation 2 weeks in advance and was contacted 3 times to be sure we were coming; the last time about an hour before our reserved time. (a little annoying) Upon arrival we were seated immediately. Our server was very attentive and explained each course as it cameout. the food was very good especially the she crab soup and the passion fruit tart. The shrimp appetizer was rather small and the salad could have been a little larger but all in all the food was excellent. Even though we enjoyed our dining experience we probably will not go again since it was very pricey. We don't mind paying since we frequent other fine restaurants, but this was a little over the top."
Dined on 2/15/2014
Iron is an awesome restaurant it
was six of us, and all of us enjoyed every course from the appetizers ( Lamb, oysters, cheese ) to the main courses.. we all ordered something different and we enjoyed every smidgen of the food when the table is quiet that's a great sign..... Also we had a great Server who made sure that everything was great his name is Ken and he rocks he was educated about each and everything on the menu.... We will definitely be returning back to Iron and next time with even more people we are going to make this a monthly thing......Overall Wow.....and our complements to the Chef......"

We had an outstanding experience
at the Iron. They have a broad menu selection and an excellent wine list. The service was very smooth and responsive to our needs. Desserts were fantastic also."
Dined on 12/12/2013
Service was excellent, food was
exceptional including appetizer, salad, entree and dessert. Wine was over-priced. Trendy "Kitchen in the Dining Room" concept was interesting but very smokey with strong smell of frying oysters and grilled meat dominating the air. We may return, but think a week night rather than "Prime Time" Friday evening may be more pleasant. I have already recommended this restaurant to friends based on service and food."
Dined on 1/10/2014
I have been wanting to try this
place for a while after seeing photo posts and reviews of the delicious looking food. I was not disappointed, at all! A group of us ladies went on a Wednesday night. Each of us enjoyed EVERYTHING we ordered. Every dish was a work of art. I love presentation, as well as taste, and this place delivered both!! I have already told all my friends and plan to return myself. This restaurant is a great addition to our fine dining establishments in our community."
Dined on 1/8/2014
We had a party of 8 on a Friday
night. Our waitress, Jessica, knew everything about the menu, including ingredients and their wine selection. Everyone really enjoyed themselves. The table ordered oysters, escargot, gumbo, and salads. Delicious!!!! I've never been to a dinner that large where everyone is ecstatic about their food. Next, we ate the lamb shank, duck, and veal tenderloin. I can't decide if I liked the tenderloin, which is what I had, or the duck better. Everything was so delicious. For dessert, I had creme brûlée with yummy strawberry sorbet on top and my husband had a chocolate terrine. Both were extremely good and a great ending to dinner. The chef, Alex McPhail, is wonderful. I will definitely be going back."

Iron at Marcus Pointe is a great
addition to the Pensacola dining scene. A superb experience on all fronts: service is pleasant and attentive without ever being intrusive, atmosphere is relaxing and modern, the food is fabulous and all arrives beautifully presented."

We have dined her several times
and have always enjoyed this. Every time our daughter comes in from Chicago, she wants to dine here."
Dined on 12/27/2013
Three of our foursome's meals were
very good. I had duck which was quite good except two very large chunks of fat cooked and served. The very young seaters and wait staff seemed pre-occupied with anything but checking on our table as well as nearby tables. The place has enormous potential but needs to step it up for these prices."
Dined on 12/14/2013
Wow! Unexpected...decor just so so
but just wanted to lick the plate in public good. Our waitress was awesome, she was friendly and happy. Good recommendations and knowledgeable, never obtrusive. Can't wait to go back and see what yummy things they dream up next...it's a GoToo!"
Dined on 12/7/2013
Do not be fooled by the location.
Iron is a truly fantastic restaurant with an eclectic and delicious menu. Be prepared to drop about $100 or more (salad, entree, dessert, 1 cocktail & 2 beers) but believe me, it is completely worth it for the food. The restaurant is a bit noisy but, not offensively so. Overall, we had a great night and we will be back."
Dined on 12/6/2013
The food was excellent, as was the
service. One of the best restaurants in the Pensacola area. Fine food, appropriate portions. Quality rather than quantity. Better than the Fish House and their associated restaurants by a good measure"
Dined on 9/7/2013
Dined at Iron for the 4th time,
but took a business group of six for dinner this time. Excellent bar, appetizers and main course. The oyster appetizer was a great treat for out of towers who like Gulf seafood, but wouldn't typically try oysters. It was so good, I ordered a second for my main course. The bar drinks are always unique and refreshing, and the wine list was affordable and good quality. Fellow dinners had the drum and commented it was the best fish dish ever. I will consider booking Iron again for business functions."

I took my husband here for his
birthday. We had several other couples with us. We all enjoyed our dinner very much. This being all of our first time. Food, wine, service was Outstanding!! 2 thumbs up. Will be recommending to other and will be back."
Dined on 11/23/2013
Read great reviews about this
restaurant so I had high expectations going in. The experience was better than expected, the service, menu, wine list and food over delivered! I will be back."
Dined on 11/22/2013
Probably the best restaurant in
Pensacola in my opinion. Getting there was interesting as it was tucked back in a neighborhood in West Pensacola but the neighborhood was very nice & once you got there it was a great building. The hostess greeted us warmly and brought us to a great table. Mike was our server & he was very at tentative and friendly but not pushy or hovering. He also times everything perfectly. We didn't feel rushed but never had to wait for anything either. We had the cheese plate appetizer which was the best appetizer I've ever had. Our entrees (red snapper & ribeye) were also great & perfectly cooked."
Dined on 11/22/2013
Iron is a must for anyone who
enjoys food that not only tastes good but is beautifully prepared. I selected grouper served with grits surrounded by a variety of seasoned vegtables all cooked to perfection. My guest selected mussels and shrimp. Verdict.....both meals were excellent. The atmostphere is relaxed yet you enjoy elegant surroundings. The staff was friendly and the service was top-notch! Already looking forward to my next visit"

Exceptional taste and
presentation. By far the best shrimp and grits I've ever tasted."

lunch. Delicious, expertly prepared."

I chose Iron for our special
anniversary dinner and was very pleased. The quAlity of the food and service was outstanding. The restaurant has a feeling of being special compared to other local options."
Dined on 11/7/2013
Ate at this restaurant for the
first time last weekend. Had wanted to go for months and had high hopes. I was not disappointed. From our server Jessica to the food experience, it was a wonderful dinner. The oyster appetizer was outstanding, and I will order it every time I visit this restaurant again. Wife had a glass of wine and I a martini. Alcohol prices were relatively high and the martini was relatively small although tasty. Wife had salmon, and I had Pompano. Both were perfectly prepared. If they ask you how you want your salmon cooked, go with medium rare. Lots of other great choices on the menu that I can't wait to try. Definitely recommend this restaurant. It's off the beaten path but worth it."
