  • "Sat night at 6:30 the sweet potaoes were not as good as they had been in the past. However the salmon was delicious"

  • "We had great service and I'm only sorry I don't remember our server's name because he helped create a wonderful dining experience out with friends. We will be back hopefully sooner rather than later."

  • "Didn't eat this time but made reservation on Open Table for a group. Requested bar because we were planning on going to First Friday walk just down the street in Paseo and I didn't know whether friends would want to eat any appetizers or just have cocktails. They were great about taking my reservation notes down for the bar seating. Even expanded it by two upon later request. Also said they had held off "poachers" from taking my seats...........LOL I give them hands down for service and attentiveness. Bartender may not have totally appreciated that we didn't eat but hey, we spent around $50/couple for drinks........so not all bad. I appreciated their service. (Food rating based upon past visit but place was crowded meaning others enjoyed)"

  • "Every time I come to Iron Starr whether it is with a group, or just my husband and I..we are always treated to the best...food and service. I recommend Iron Starr to everyone I know looking for something different, or wanting to try something new. Thanks again for another great evening, Melissa Schenk Dennis (Tinsley)"

  • "Iron Starr is another favorite! We love sitting in the front room area, and they always honor our request. Very casual atmosphere with delicious food. The tenderloin salad is so good - small head of iceberg lettuce stuffed with cheese and nice size slices of tenderloin (perfectly cooked) on the side. Very tender! The dressing is surprisingly on the sweet side (ask for extra dressing), and lots of nuts make this a satisfying entree:) I recommend it highly. Baked beans are very spicy, so stay away if you like mild flavors. The cornbread is a "must have." This restaurant is consistently good with friendly service, fun cocktails, and very good food!!! If you haven't tried it yet, be sure and pay them a visit. It won't disappoint!"

  • "I've eaten at Iron Starr twice. The first time we had a big group. The second time, it was just my husband and me. Each time the service was great and the staff was attentive. I had the brown sugar brisket. I heard from one in our large group that the hamburger was excellent. All-in-all, I like the casual atmosphere and recommend Iron Starr for any occasion."

  • "I couldn't have had a better time. We were a little early for our reservation, but we were seated right away. Our waitress was amazing. She was very personable and the device was fast, our drinks came quickly, the deviled egg appetizer was delicious. I ordered the special and it was phenomenal. Also, the beer choices on draft complimented our meals so well. My husband ordered the three sausage trio and said it was amazing and we had. I left overs to take home. The only thing I am bummed about was being too full to order dessert. I would highly recommend this restraraunt and ask to sit in Eva's section. We will definitely be going back!!!"

  • "Glad we made reservations through Open Table since the place was packed when we showed up. Special drinks menu was good, I found a new favorite "locked and loaded". Started with some deviled eggs, which were served with an assortment of delicious pickled items. Ordered the pulled pork dinner and chopped brisket dinner with mac and cheese and baked beans. Iron Starr is always a good choice for good barbeque!"

  • "We have eaten here several times even though we don't live in the neighborhood it is worth the drive. Would recommend it as the menu is very diverse not just BBC."

  • "The selection of food is good and a great wine list. Loved the fried okra! The filet and prime rib were excellent"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Ribs tender yet gummy and dry rubbed Corn casserole was cold Yams tasted more like a very plain baked sweet potato. Sadly, I ordered the mac n cheese, I received.the cold corn casserole. My husband had the club sandwich with fries, he actually received the mac n cheese. It also took about 20 min for our nessed up order to come. I wonder how long it would take during rush hour.we arrived at 5:45. After lickin our fingers we couldn't understand y we didn't get a warm cloth like the other diners. .hmm"

  • "Stopped in for the Wed special. OK so yes its "only" chicken-fried steak, but they have a great CFS! It's Oklahoma so if you're going to have one it better be good. IT IS! Well played."

  • "Upon arrival we were immediately seated. Since we held tickets to the Civic center Pops concert we appreciated this and had asked to be able to leave for downtown by 7:00PM and we were ready to go by that time. We appreciate the attention to our details and the food and service were excellent! All of these qualities keep us returning time and time again for a great evening at The Iron Star. Thanking ya'll again and looking forward to next time---- Preston and Marty Thompson"

  • "I love the food but the noise level really was loud. I was having lunch with friends that I hadn't seen in a while and I wanted to visit but we practiclly had to shout at each othre to hear."
    Dined on 1/22/2014
  • "The restaurant was nearly empty but the hostess tried to seat us at a table right up against a party of 10-12 people. I requested a different table and she reluctantly led us to another table. The server was polite and efficient but any attempts at friendly banter were ignored. He acted as though he was working a packed house. The food was adequate if not great. I really liked the pulled pork nachos we had as an appetizer. When our meals arrived, my okra was cold and tough. The dry rub on the ribs was a bit mealy for me. The sweet potatoes were an odd consistency but hot and sweet. My spouse enjoyed the turkey and corn pudding. The cornbread was very good. Nothing was a real standout. I don't see a return visit."

    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "My spouse and I went for dinner and ordered the pork ribs and bbq turkey breast with 2 sides each (mac 'n cheese, baked beans, dutch oven sweet potatoes, and corn pudding). The food was amazing ... the ribs were one of the best I've ever had and our server was great. He was very attentive to our needs despite the crowd in the restaurant. A caveat, the restaurant seems small so there many be a wait on a busy night. We booked reservations ahead of time so we were fortunate to be seated at a booth upon arrival which is what I suggest if you plan to go here for a special occasion. Lastly, if you saved room for dessert, the 6 layer giant chocolate cake is a must and will require a to go box."

  • "The food and service was exceptionally good and the manager (Jay) made sure to make us feel welcomed. Do not forget to get an order of the bacon wrapped quail breast with the apricot serrano jam. To be honest id say that the Iron Starr was on point"
    Dined on 12/19/2013
  • "Everything was so delicious, especially the cornbread. The service was very quick and very helpful on suggesting the best on the menu. I always get the collard greens and I highly suggest them if you have never tried them. They are delicious, you hardly know you are eating vegetables."
    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "With all the good bbq meat on the menu, it's hard to pick just one... so don't! Try the club sandwich, which is loaded with smoked turkey breast, chopped brisket, bacon, jack and cheddar on texas toast and includes their bbq aioli sauce. Add the mac and cheese as the side, and you'll have all the "comfort" you need."
    Dined on 11/27/2013
  • "I finally got to go on a Tuesday to hit their special of brisket tacos!! OMG, they were good. And I know it sounds weird, but my side was the mac and cheese. I can't go there without having that. It's the best in town."

  • "After being greeted and seated right away, the service went downhill and very slow and rather disjointed. Although the presentation of the food was really good the food itself was not hot and tasted rather bland. One of my fellow diners ordered their tenderloin medium well it appeared medium rare. Overall our experience was meh."

  • "We love going to Iron Starr! There were 4 of us and 2 of us received the wrong sides. We pointed it out to the waiter and he promptly brought the correct sides for each of us. We go to the Iron Starr for special occasions and have never been disappointed! The service is impeccable and food is special and delicious! I would describe the sides as "home cooking" with an updated twist. We love love love the food! I chose the ribs and they were so tender they practically fell off the bone. Kudos for a great dining experience to the Iron Starr!"

  • "Most BBQ restaurants are going to give you the same experience whether dining in or taking out - meaning, there is nothing special about the service or atmosphere (unless you want to sit in the smokehouse). At Iron Starr, you definitely feel like its worthy of dining out. And, there are some good smoked, and bbq meats given in variety. Even the simple "club sandwich" provides some good smoked meat, and skip the fries and go for the mac n cheese for your side dish. The bbq nachos are a very loaded and filling appetizer, too."

  • "Iron Starr is one of the places we go to celebrate birthdays and special events. We love the food! I had called and made reservations for our party of 4 and our table was ready and the service was superb. We each had something different and we all shared. Everything was wonderful! To top it off, our waitress overheard that we were celebrating our son's birthday and gave us a $5.00 birthday discount! Wonderful gesture. She was very sweet and provided great service without being intrusive. We'll definitely visit again."
