Excellent service, food, and experience. With each interaction , each employee made an effort to make our anniversary celebration special. They even custom printed “Happy Anniversary” on our menus. I will definitely make this more than a special occasion destination.

The Lamb Neck Melt was delicious!! My husband tried a New York Strip and it wasn't as much of a hit. But we will definitely be back to try new menu items.

The atmosphere here is awesome. The food is what you expect at a fine dining restaurant but the room isn’t so stuffy. Our waiter was very attentive but not overly distracting. We will definitely be back

Restaurant Iron is always a go-to restaurant when celebrating special occasions as it never disappoints. The food was superb and the service top-notch. Taylor made sure to keep us completely satisfied with our experience. The wine list has a wonderful range of varietals and the pricing is very reasonable for the selections. We will continue to consider this establishment as a 5 star when dining out.

Based on the reviews, had high expectations. Food was good but not great. Biggest letdown was a $62 filet that had the texture of a sirloin. Left somewhat disappointed.

IRON always has an interesting menu and everything is delicious!
Last night, we started with the bacon smoked old-fashioned cocktail-always a favorite. For dinner, we ordered the whole fried green tomato salad, beef tenderloin with lion's main mushrooms, and butterfinger cheese cake...Yummy!!!
I also love the chef's version of Chicken and dumplings, airline chicken, rib-eye, and heirloom tomato salad....also the Nutella pie is great!
Make sure to make a reservation, IRON is popular. A walk-in table or place at the bar is always possible, but make a reservation if you want to be sure.
*I don't eat seafood, but have friends who are life-long fishermen with very high standards-they have been impressed with every seafood entree they have chosen.

The experience was amazing top to bottom. We had a list minute additional person to our party and the manager was gracious enough to accommodate us. The server was amazing and I had the best redfish I've ever tasted! We will definitely be back. Thanks everyone!

Appetizer was disappointing, the truffle fries were barely warm and it was more crumbs than fries.
The entree (fish) was outstanding but the wait for it to arrive at the table was excessive.

We sat outside and the street noise was a little much.

Has been so good in the past but food is now overpriced and of only decent quality. Worst of all, the entree menu consists of only 7 or so choice, with steak being 4 of them. I will not go back for quite some time, and starting to wonder if they can survive on their former reputation.

Food was great and our server Danielle was very efficient, polite and friendly. The menu had good selections, but I would like to see more middle of the road pricing. Prices in the mid $30's were good, but then jumped to $60+. It would be nice for something in the middle. The taste of the food was what I would expect from a higher end restaurant...excellent.

We haven't been back to Iron since COVID, and decided to give it a try. The menus has drastically changed, and suffered a few issues. The fillet, while good, is over-priced, and one of our desserts was nothing like the menu description. Service was very good, but the cocktails were only average. Tuesdays there is a special on wine, so it's a good day to go! Unfortunately, I'm in no hurry to go back. I miss the "old" menus and some of the signature items that Iron opened with!
