Went on opening night so take
Went on opening night so take everything with a grain of salt. The food is all small plates expect to order at least 2 for dinner. The drinks are great focusing on elaborate cocktails that are tasty without loosing their alcohol taste. The food is all top quality I especially liked the fried artichoke's but everything was a bit heavy. A lighter option like a salad would have been nice addition to the menu. The wait staff was very attentive however they use Ipads to do the ordering at the table. While this leads to quicker placement of your orders and faster service the fact that they have to scan through the Ipad for the item you ordered seems a bit awkward at the table. Overall a good experience

This was our first time at
This was our first time at this establishment. They just opened and they were a little overwhelmed. Our waitress was very friendly and the food was excellent. We will go back.

You got to go and check it out!
We had a great dinner with a friend. The food, deserts and specialty drinks were amazing! Got seconds!
Went back the next day with new friends.

We went to Iron Shaker for a birthday celebration and were not disappointed. The food and service far exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion and plan on frequenting it myself. The Happy Hour alone is worth the visit!

Monday Night at the Iron Shaker
I suggested the place for a first date. When we first walked in there were only a couple of people at the bar. We were the only people dining–but again, it was a Monday night.
If you are the type of person who never knows what they want to order because you want everything–The Iron Shaker is perfect. We ordered fish tacos, pork belly, lamb chops & tuna tartare. It was plenty for two people. The fish tacos were very tasty, lamb chops were seasoned &cooked very nicely, & the pork belly had an incredible sweet and savory BBQ sauce. The tuna tartare was served similar to nachos, with chips to scoop the tuna and avocado–fun and good for sharing! We had an oreo cheesecake for dessert, it was delicious - just like all of Iron Tomatos pastries!

Great food and loved the "small plate" concept (though the quality was FAR from small). Drinks were terrific, and the service was perfect - attentive without hovering! Will definitely be back and look forward to trying other dishes there!!

Great location for a date night
We dined with another couple. Great place! We shared a few plates and had some delicious wine. I recommend for a night out without the kids. Each dish was better than the next. I recommend the rice balls and fish tacos. YUM!

Great addition to the neighborhood
My wife and I enjoyed a couple of small plates and some wine after a movie the other night. Nice ambiance, felt like a city spot with modern decor but without the pretense. Very good service. More importantly, tasty food. The small plates weren't small by any means. The portions were generous. As first timers they were thoughtful enough to give us a free dessert too. Overall, we had a nice experience there and would definitely go back to try a few more dishes. Worth checking out for sure.

The food was absolutely wonderful - I was worried that the smaller plates wouldn't be enough - but it was plenty filling. The drinks was just amazing also. Soooooo can't wait to go back!
