    We ate several times at this restaurant because it was the only lunch option at the resort. When we could order off the menu, the food was very good but very expensive. On the day that I was asked to review, there was a large group at the hotel and we were told we could only order the buffet. Tex-Mex buffet, very fair quality (especially for the cost) and very few choices. Basically was a taco bar. Big steam trays of pulled pork and pulled chicken, typical taco toppings, rice and succotash for color. Soft drinks were not included, nor was dessert. We asked about dessert (still hungry after buffet). Waitress had to check with kitchen. When she returned she brought the dinner dessert menu which was very costly. Fortunately we asked about a fruit plate and paid more than the buffet for a small fresh fruit plate for 3 people.

    The food was wonderful. Clam Chowder soup tasted very fresh. Watermelon salad was freshening. Mini chicken Pot pie was surprising tasty. Short ribs were melt in your mouth and no knife was needed. Orzo was a wonderful carb change. Hubby had the Mahi Mahi which he also said was melt in your mouth. The Mom's Mashed Potatoes had skins and large pieces of Yukon Gold. he also had the green beans which he told me that I have to make this kind at home. Deserts were abundant . Great choice's from cookies to cold fruit soup. At the time we had our dinner, early, due to the concert later that evening, the restaurant had seats open. Very kid friendly.They had a"kids" buffet but we did not sample. There was a a Sushi Buffet, but we did not taste

    We chose this restaurant at the Princess because of the menu. After waiting and having been seated found out they only served a buffet that nite. Not what we expected or wanted.

    We went to the Ironwood American Kitchen for dinner on X-mas. There was a buffet with excellent roast beef, turkey, and salmon. We expecially enjoyed the jumbo shrimp and the wonderful deserts. Afterword we walked around the decorated grounds wsith a light show, musical lighted tree and a train ride. We will deinitely return next year!

    What a disappointment. First of all, overpriced it was $24 dollars for children per buffet and $45 per adult . It was a BUFFET yet we were charged a mandatory 20% service charge because we had 6 people (4 adults and the rest middle school age kids). I believe in gratuity, but paying 20% to a server who only brought drinks does not constitute a 20% tip.

    I took my boss out for a special holiday lunch and the restaurant lacked any type of holiday decorations. The food was poor tasting and the deserts were awful, we sent them back. What a waste a money and I will never return. A huge disappointment for our lunch choice. We could of gone to the Westin Hotel and enjoyed the magic of the holiday season there. Do not waste your money.

    I've had breakfast and lunch at Ironwood American Kitchen, and both were outstanding. The breakfast portions are very generous, so bring your appetite! At lunch, the deviled eggs are worth sharing (they have a little kick and are topped with bacon - what's not to like?), and the house made chips with onion dip is another good one to share. The Big Daddy (named after the resort's GM) is juicy and delicious. The Asian salad is a great blend of flavors and highly recommended.

    2 mtgs here over 2 days. 1st day was great! 2nd day they blew it. Our party was not seated together & in fact, a client was seated at a different table at the restaurant, & was out of my site. They gave my name as they entered but were not seated at my table. We only discovered later that afternon they were there. I thought they skipped the meeting & they thought I was a no show at the meeting I set up. Then at my table where I had 1 client present, the 'kitchen' lost our tickets & our food took 25 minutes to arrive. It made us late for our conference meeting. They took 1 of the entres off the bill & apologized but I was more disturbed after I learned they goofed up with seating my party together.

    Limited dinner selection, we were the ONLY ones there at 6pm and they were out of one of our food choices. Now i see why I could not get into any other place.

    What a surprise to see this nice restaurant entirely taken over by tired, yelling kids from the pool. The food was very good but if you are thnking of a nice dinner with adults, choose another restaurant. Staff was invisible. Plates were not cleared. Glasses sat empty. Our experience was a chaotic, frustrating, way too noisy evening. Food was good but "no" service etc makes this Fairmont location a one star. You can do much better.

    Ironwood seems to be in transition. They have a vey limited wine list , that is not written down anywhere. Breakfast is their best offering. Not up to the quality of the other on site restaurants at the Fairmont.
