    Despite an excellent review in the Bee last week, the service has not improved from my previous visits. We waited 45 minutes for drink orders even though there were very few people in the restaurant or at the bar. The tempura greens beans were excellent appetizers, but the "battle burger" was just okay. All would have been a good evening had the service been up to par.

    We were hopeful after reading a review in the local paper that Iron was a great place to go. It is near our house and I thought we might have finally found a place to eat meat that wasn't an arm and a leg (for example, Ruth Chris and Morton's). The waitress was very nice. When our hamburgers that we ordered medium well came out rare she quickly replaced them and gave us free drinks. But the taste was still not there. Sweet potato fries were good. Will try again for brunch.

    Everything about this place was fantastic. The ambiance was very relaxing and the lights were dim but not too dim like some places have. We were sat right next to the kitchen, which made me a little nervous but they do an amazing job with the sound control, we couldn't hear a gong from the kitchens less the door was open. Every bite of food was absolutely delicious. From the bread to the last bit of our meals. I ordered the filet mignon and ordered it medium. It was perfect! The garlic potatoes and asparagus that acompanied it were to die for. And very large portions. We left absolutely stuffed with food left on our plate. Service was amazing as well, glasses were never empty and the timing of courses was perfect.

    We enjoyed our night out at Iron. My husband decided on the fish on a bed of risotto and I opted for the prime rib which was so delicious. The sangrias are also very delicious. Plus the prices are affordable. We love this place and will come again.

    For a steak place, this was the blandest filet I've ever had. the quality of the meat was excellent and it was cooked perfectly. There was just no flavor. The sides were very good. We tried the mac and cheese, polenta cakes and garlic mashed potatoes. All were excellent.

    We had the lobster and steak, which was the best in town!!! The calamari and artichoke hearts were outstanding. The prices are very reasonable and we will make this one of our go to places. Recommend this for all occasions. Wait staff was a little slow and scattered, but we got our meal and dessert was awesome!

    Excellent breakfast! I had the seafood omelet (with real crab in it) and it came with a wonderful hollandaise sauce on top. The home-style potatoes which accompanied it were cooked just right - not over spiced - not over cooked. A friend had Eggs Benedict and loved it. The beignets they serve if you want instead of toast were also very good. I'm planning my next visit! Another friend has had dinner here, and they call it their "go to" place for steaks!

    2 in our group had surf and turf and were pleased with preparation and presentation. the sauce on the crab cake appetizer was a bit timid but the crab cakes were well proportioned and good; the artichoke was a hit (again); the prawn and prosciutto pasta was interesting and had a great presentation but the sauce was too subdued with no real identity. With a little work on making the sauces more "robust," Iron would move up a notch from very good to excellent. Service was prompt and attentive even if he did not know much about the pasta special's ingredients ("Pasta, I think.) but he was excellent otherwise

    The exterior and interior décor is very attractive. The dining room has an 'Asian modern' feeling to it, which was exciting at first. Though once seated we felt something was not working right. Was it the overly casual clientele schlepping around in t-shirts and flip flops? The happy hour crowd heedless of the pitch of their voices? The lack of sound dampening that comes with a restaurant with food and service that Iron seems to aspire to? Or did I read all that wrong? Casual steakhouse or modern fine dining? The food was very good steak house fare. We had grilled rib-eye and prime rib. Both done very well, but for the price maybe not over-the-moon. Advertised "baked potato" was really just mashed potatoes with bacon bits. Okay.

    The menu is limited, which is fine if you know that going in. Most steakhouses will have several non-steak dishes and while Iron does, dont expect variety. They were out of two types of steak my group wanted, Ribeye and I believe NY... Crazy, there has to be a butcher or good supermarket they could get a backfill. Service was adequate, but not really for a top end steakhose. We ordered an extra side that must have been forgotten, because we got it essentially when we were all done with our meals. AND, they charged us for the side, which we tried but didnt eat. All in all, it was okay, but not great. The reviews have been great, so i may give it another try if i am stuck on where to go.

    The food was OK. The garlic fried chicken was good, the chorizo scramble was very bland. The beignets were lousy, the hash browns were laden with grease. So we tried it once, but we will not be back. Oh and the noise was so loud that we could barely hear each other across the table.

    The service was some of the best I have ever experienced....and I eat out a lot. Our server was Shelly and she was fabulous, funny and very courteous. Unfortunately this is not true of many eating establishments. Our food was served quickly and was delicious. Our party of 5 was very happy with their food choice and definitely will make a return visit in the near future.

    My family and I have gone to Iron for both brunch, special occasions and most recently dinner. I love the online reservation program. When we got there, which was 15 minutes later than we reserved, I was greeted by name and with a smile. Our waiter was great and accommodating. We didn't notice a children's menu, but when asked the chef graciously whipped up some good eaten for our 10 year old guest. The food was just absolutely delicious. As a matter of fact, every time I've gone I've never been disappointed with their menu, brunch and dinner. Unfotunatley I no longer live in close by, but I wouldn't mind the drive for great service, and some good food.

    I was actually disappointed in the food. My lobster was not cooked all the way and had to have it returned. My husbands steak was encrusted with too much blue cheese and made it hard to eat. We went to celebrate our 29th anniversary and felt like they could have acknowledged it when I specifically put that in our reservations. We were looking forward to sitting at the bar and having some fun after dinner drinks that I remembered were on the bar menu the last time we were there but they don't make them anymore so we went to the Delta King instead. It was very expensive for what we actually got.

    The crab cakes at Iron Steak are worth the visit. The brunch crab cakes, with an excellent hollandaise, are far superior to the dinner crab cakes that have a slightly different taste and a not so pleasing sauce. The beignets are also quite tasty and round the brunch out. I'm a Creole/Barbadian from the South. I thought the jambalaya was less than stellar. Good effort, but lacking in the right spice combo and rather bland. The prime rib was not the best, it also was bland, but hey! Love this place ANYWAY!!! Have visited six times thus far.

    Went there on Mother's Day. Menu was diverse which was a plus since all of group had different tastes. Everything food wise was excellent. Steaks were prepared as ordered and delicious. Salmon risotto dish was very flavorful. Crab cakes, lobster et al were fantastic. While we did have several wait staff helping us we had to ask 3 times to have the water glasses refilled. They were filled immediately upon asking each time, but we shouldn't have to ask. Also, while the decor is nice, it showed several areas of dust accumulation and cobwebs. I noticed it in particularly with the dried flower arrangements at the booths and the lights in the ceiling.

    My husband and I took my mom out for an early Mother's Day dinner on Saturday night. I was surprised it was not very busy. Although we had a reservation, we could have been seated right away. The service was great, the food was great. The only flop about our experience was that it took over 45 mins. to get our food. Our server said the system had shut down and the kitchen never got our order. He gave us drinks on the house, so it worked out ok. I had the blue cheese crusted tri tip. Delicious!!

    I had been here in the past and thought I would revisit it and see what's changed. Our drinks took 30 minutes. The menu was decent but it took our waiter an 1/2 an hour to ask for our order. Our appetizers took over 45 minutes to show up. Our main entree's took nearly an hour and a half. We were at this place for nearly 2 hours & 15 minutes. The food was ok but both our plates were under-cooked. Our waiter apologized over 5 times but it became redundant after awhile. It's safe to say I'd never go back. So much potential. One positive: The beignets were AWESOME!

    Service was terrible. The wrong food was ordered by our waiter. He threw kitchen under the bus for the mistake, but when the bill came he had entered the wrong information. He couldn't change the bill for the wrong item so he removed a glass of wine to lessen the charge. Our steaks, ordered med-rare were well done. the dinner rolls (bignets) were requested 3 times before we got them and then they were uncooked in the middle. Our entire experience was terrible.

    Dinner with 2 alcoholic beverages-$80.00 with gratuity. Service was very good, but for the price of the meal I have experienced much finer prepared cuisine. The meal price included a deduction of $10.00, provided by a coupon my wife and I received from our monthly Neighborhood Shopper flyer received each month here in the Pocket/Greenhaven area. My steak was ordered Medium-Rare, received a Medium steak, and the veggie was overpowered with garlic. Had we paid $90.00 for the meal, no repeat visit. When reservation was made, an inquiry as to special comments. I typed in "Anniversary", and my experience in the past has been a complementary dessert. If the food quality is the same, this establishment gets crossed off.
