Loved sitting outside andLoved sitting outside and watching the trains roll through town. Our guests really enjoyed the evening. We go to the Ironhorse three to four times a year. The food is always changing and always good. The bar is very nice too.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoy the Food and the ViewGreat place to get a wonderful meal while watching the trains roll through.

A short diversion to the Ironhorse and you will find both.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat local spot!We've been to the Ironhorse many times and love it! For this visit, we brought my brother, who was visiting from San Diego. He's very well-traveled and dines out A LOT!! He was SO impressed with the restaurant, esp. the extensive wine list! The Ironhorse is now on his list of Richmond-area favorites!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth Driving to AshlandWe are normally city diners if we want to try the next best thing. We live equidistant to the city and Ashland, so it's about a 15-20 minute drive for us to get to Ashland's historic town where Ironhorse is located. We used the Open Table app to get a reservation at 6:45, and arrived slightly after that. They took us to our table, which was located at the back part of the fine dining area. While it was not bustling when we arrived at that time, the scene quickly filled with couples and families. The train went by during dinner, which was so fun to see and the food was wonderful. I had the marinated skirt steak, an iceberg salad (house-made dressing was fantastic) and pork morsels fried in duck fat - so indulgent and good. We'll be back!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMI liked the convience of obtainingI liked the convience of obtaining a reservation online. The Ironhorse has a great location in Ashland. Good parking off the street in the rear of the establishment. Perfect for anniverseries or date night. Try the specials, take your time and leave room for dessert. The portion sizes are generous and cooked to your specifications.
Very good experience all around. My entire family had a good time.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed our dinner andWe enjoyed our dinner and experience at your restaurant and will be coming back/4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe srvice and food were greatThe srvice and food were great and we love the ambiance of the place.We will be back.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe entire experience wasThe entire experience was a delight! I was bringing my Dad their after a long train ride from New York. From the moment of placing my reservation through the delivery of 2 Ddelicious Meals to our Departure late at night everyone there helped make this a memorable meal/ Thank You4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat with room for improvementThe Ironhorse is always a fun outing for a special occasion. We had two different steak dinners which were both excellent. Great care was taken in the kitchen to prepare the meal. The staff was very attentive and on top of things for service.
My suggestions for the menu would be to carry a standard or signature beef option (filet, strip, sirloin) instead or in addition to the rotating entre. The menu is custom but I like a go-to standard steak every so often. The wine list is fun but it would be nice to have some the recent wino favorites (Caymus, Silver Oak, etc.) Better bread would be good thing also.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMEaster brunch was tasty atEaster brunch was tasty at Ironhorse!

We had drinks at the bar while waiting for everyone. The staff were very friendly and the food was excellent, both the presentation, the taste and the quantities. The appetizer was a little slow coming out. The wine price seemed a little high.
Overall experience was very good.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved watching the trainsLoved watching the trains go by as we enjoyed our delicious dinner!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMCool venue in quaint littleCool venue in quaint little old town.
