So glad they are in our neighborhood!6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMEqually good at brunch & dinnerWe arrived before opening for our brunch but were still welcomed warmly and served professionally.

Have also been for dinner and enjoyed the wine selection.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a positive experienceThe Iron Bridge is the place my husband and I always celebrate anniversaries and special holidays. We love the casual atmosphere, the excellent wines. The menu is always different so we get to try something new every visit. We have never had a bad glass of wine, the recommendations are always excellent. Treat yourself, you won't regret it!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMI was trying to give a thoughtfulI was trying to give a thoughtful review but this opentable form does not provide enough space. And I prefer not to leave comments that I cannot properly explain.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service were veryFood and service were very good. One patron laughed excessively loud on sevral occassions, but the restaurant could not be expected to control this.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMLucked out with a ThursdayLucked out with a Thursday night unexpected wine discount! Great food and great wine!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AM25th Anniversary Night OutKate, our waitress was outstanding. When we arrived at our table there was an anniversary card signed by the staff followed by a lovely glass of champagne. I had been to the restaurant in the past and knew what to expect but my husband had not. We started off with the cheese plate, which never disappoints, followed by fabulous salads and entrees. We took one bite of the delicious desserts and asked for to go containers because we were so satisfied with what we had already consumed that we decided to save the sumptuous crème Brule and cheesecake for the next day. Kate was extremely attentive but not obtrusive. My husband enjoyed the evening as much as I did.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Steak nightGreat evening, ambiance..and for the price, couldn't beat it. The mushroom soup with feta cheese and olive oil was unctuous !!5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent cuisineOur table for four was ready for us at the requested reservation time. Location was a bit noisy as we were literally right next to the front door but it also ensured we received attentive service.
Service was prompt despite the fact that this place nearly always fills up so you need to make reservations! Food was prepared exactly as requested and each dish was quite delicious (Halibut x2, Sirloin and braised ribs). Food quality, taste and wine selection are the primary reasons this place is so popular. Another great experience.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienceI went here for my anniversary and was very pleased with the overall atmosphere! Highly recommended: great service, great food, and great wine.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMA Hidden GemGreat friendly service with a wonderful smile. Go Christina!!! The food and drink and wine selections are tremendous! A beautiful scenic drive. Very romantic. A can't miss spot...5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFun 50th!We celebrated a 50th birthday with 2 couples. Food was fantastic, and server was very attentive and knowledgeable. Reservations are a must as this is a small setting with limited seating. At our age.... glad we brought our readers. Low, low lighting!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMKate and the team at IronKate and the team at Iron Bridge created a wonderful experience for our 12th wedding anniversary. It was our first time at Iron Bridge - no question that we would return.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMIBWC is one of my favoritesIBWC is one of my favorite restaurants. We are fortunate to have it located in Howard County. The menu is interesting, especially with the offerings of small plates and starters in addition to entrees. The food is prepared with fresh ingredients and is always presented well. I enjoyed the salad with the luncheon quiche as well as the steamed mussels. Of course, the wines are interesting. The service is always very good!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't pass this "Bridge" upIron Bridge has proven itself again and again for my wife and I. Located right on Howard County's curving thoroughfare, route 108 and across from Clark's Elioak Farms. Iron Bridge has an extensive wine list, food that I can pronounce and actually eat. We celebrated Mother's Day with our 15 year old son. I definitely recommend this for special occasions and for a time when you want to move up from the usual Friday/Saturday dining options. You do not have to be dressed up but the staff looks great. Another great opportunity is that Iron Bridge produces a monthly wine list of bottle for sale. Typically $10 to $12 each. Terrific choices for any budget. We bought a case of reds from the May Wine list and received 20% off.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb, as usualHaving already reviewed Iron Bridge several times, I haven't much to add; but I'll mention that a continuing feature of their dessert menu is bread pudding, upon which they make frequent variations. This time it was "double chocolate" -- delectable.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome everything except the noiseThe food is incredible, and the staff is amazing. They are very knowledgable about their wine selection, the chef is creative, and his crew is awesome. We have never had a bad meal. What we have had is a bad romantic dining experience. Every. Single. Time. They need a different building/area for parties so those parties are separate from couples trying to enjoy a romantic evening. The lack of sound-dampening materials lets inebriated guests wax poetic their exuberance. For the menu, ambiance, and especially price: I would expect a more refined experience.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce again an excellent meal,Once again an excellent meal, including both salads and a chicken entree as well as trout. The desert (strawberry-rhubarb crisp) was also delicious. The waitress was also very pleasant and helpful. We look forward to another meal in the near future.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous and imaginative food!Iron Bridge is always fabulous - the food is imaginative, flawless, a taste sensation and consistently excellent. We ar enever disappointed here - and the service is always exceptional as well. The menu changes frequently but every dish is incredibly creative and makes you want to beg for more. This is not to mention the wine selections which are without compare anywhere in Howard County. A Black Bass Ceviche the other night was to die for as was all the food we ate - far beyond exceptional. We love coming here and it is not to be missed if you love great food and/or wine. Brunch, lunch, dinner - they do it all in such a superior way. Amazing - best of all, consistently amazing!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMUnique restaurant in ColumbiaI went to Iron Bridge Wine Co. with a friend for lunch and it was lovely. Quiet, quaint atmosphere, excellent service and tasty food. I didn't try any of the more adventurous menu items, but my simple lunch was very well done. Our waiter was quite knowledgeable on the wine selections and helped me pick a nice glass after giving me several tastings. An unexpected find in Columbia!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite restaurant forMy favorite restaurant for a reason!

Matches the best in our part of NC (Chapel Hill, Durham, Raleigh.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFood combinations were well-plannedFood combinations were well-planned and presentations were very appetizing. My sirloin was cooked perfectly and my wife enjoyed her trout very much. The cabernet wine flight went perfectly with my steak. Desserts were outstanding. I had strawberry-rhubarb with peppercorn ice cream and wife had double chocolate mousse. Both desserts were matched with coffee choices of wife's decaf latte and my coffee with expresso shot. Service was fantastic; waiters were excellent at explaining choices since we were first-timers.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe like the wine flights optio,We like the wine flights optio, it gives you a chance to taste a larger number of wines without drinking too much. Also, we like the large variety of dishes- the pork cheeks, foie gra ravioli, and arugula salad are great. The food portions are a nice medium size for lunch. Too many restaurants serve large portions of food that is enough for 2 or more people.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a lovely brunch with myHad a lovely brunch with my daughter.

Love the bar. Perfect in ever way. Great food and wine choices.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favorite restaurants.We brought some discerning, foodie friends visiting from out of town to the restaurant, and Iron Bridge did not disappoint. We had a wonderful evening and a delicious meal. All of the salads and entrees were excellent, but the pork cheeks with the gnocchi was the hit of the night. Our waiter (wish I could remember his name), was a gem. The only slight drawback is that the restaurant is a little too loud for my preference. Still, despite that, highly recommended.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways awesome. A Maryland,Always awesome. A Maryland, and Howard County gem. We have never had a less than stellar meal. On top of that, their wine list is notable, and reasonable, and the staff are wonderful. Our hands down favorite restaurant.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFavorite Place to DineIron Bridge remains my favorite place to dine in Howard County. The food is excellent quality and is local. I can't say enough great things about this place. The food and service are fantastic!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service. Food delish-Great service. Food delish- although a little more variety and less raw onions would be appreciated. Excellent wine choices. A little too noisy at this visit. We sat in a different area. Perhaps this is the reason. All in all, we look forward to our next visit.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Vibes. Great food.The staff has a friendly demeanor. From the moment you walk in the door you are treated more like a friend than a patron. Great food, great wine. Great food from burgers on up.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was one of the finestThis was one of the finest meals we have ever had. The fois gras raviolis were outstanding, the lamb cooked perfectly, and a mesmerizing wine list. I would reccomend the restaurant to everyone.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome burgerIron Bridge hasn't had a burger on the dinner menu in years. When they did it, they did it right. The burgers we enjoyed were juicy and tasted divine. Maybe it had something to do with the house made BBQ sauce or the fried green tomato. Whatever it was, we loved it. It's a large burger, and the three in our party who enjoyed it heartily recommend it. If possible, get the lunch fries, which are outstanding. Iron bridge never disappoints!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always enjoy going to IronWe always enjoy going to Iron Bridge.
