We made a reservation for our small family for Easter Sunday. The service was great, our waitress (Bianca) was so pleasant and helpful. We had a great time.

It’s too bad I’m from out of town because this place was fantastic! Lots of food for a great price and chill atmosphere! It’s in a cute area with plenty of parking too.

Iron Horse has a lovely patio, but you can't escape the noise due to volume of their music. Many menu items included Jalepeno and sounded too hot for our party. Loved the muddled cucumber mocktail and would return just for that! Great service.

Choices for any needs. Beer choices. Food choices. Healthy and Vegan Choices. Indoor or outdoor seating. Nice vibe down on "RST" the up and coming streets for grid life. If I must complain (God lets me live longer) perhaps back up your servers with well trained purveyors of ice water. We must not hunger and thirst unrighteously. Try the fried chicken burger, a trio from the mac 'n cheese bar, the asian street tacos, or one of their awesome salads (get the dressing on the side).

Staff was very friendly. Since it was a Sunday afternoon the place was packed. Took a little bit to get service. Wish They would validate parking. The food was really good and generous portions.

Had a great time. Tara our server was fantastic. The mocktails and the ahi poke nachos were our favorite. The impossible burger was dry, needs a really good sauce.

The fried pickles and onions are amazing but the Cubano had a TON of mustard seed.

The ambience and our server was great. However, the food wasn’t upto the mark. We ordered Asian style tacos and they were tasteless and the dough was really hard to bite on. We ordered Garlic BBQ Chicken pizza and all we could taste was bbq sauce because it was put in large quantity and didn’t taste any garlic. We also ordered a banh Mi impossible burger which was okay.

Being in the 60+ demographic, Iron Horse Tavern was too loud for a pleasant dining experience. But on the upside, the noise drowned out the sweet, crying baby in our group. The food and service were very good. Parking on a busy weekend night was a pain and a little expensive. I don't think I would go back to this restaurant as I prefer dinner conversation that is not at the top of my lungs, but the young people with us thoroughly enjoyed it.

Positives:
Excellent food flavors, warm atmosphere, solid service.

Negatives:
For 30$, the portion that make a dish expensive(lobster) was severely lackluster.

Overall:
7/10 experience. The future possibility of coming back is intact, however it’ll be for different reasons than food.

This was my second time at Iron Horse Tavern but it was my wife’s first time. We both ordered their Steak, Eggs, ‘N Cakes. My wife sub’d her cornbread pancake out for fried potatoes and she loved it. My dish was ok as my steak was a little over cooked.

Came for NYE. They were not giving away props like NYE headbands or poppers or blowers like other places. Asked the waitress and she said they have a box of props but only given to staff. Food was tastefully good. We were a party of 6 and my BF ordered a rib eye steak Medium and it came about 10 min after everyone’s food came out. I had to flag waitress down to let her know. Customer service needs some adjustment, I didn’t feel the warmth from the staff.

Food was pretty good and although the staff were nice, the service lacked. Also, I asked for a side salad and the waitress said they had side salads. I received and was charged for a full size salad and the waitress said that is the salad option they have. My husband ordered a ribeye medium rare and it was medium well. The waitress was nice but seemed to be spacey in forgetting and overlooking things. Our friend ordered a salad instead of fries and it had no dressing or toppings. She didnt to complain

Great atmosphere and service. Food was delicious as well. Drink menu is decent and many different types of beers on tap. Went early evening and they opened up the glass panels to make the restaurant open air and the nice breeze out was pleasant. Great service and not too crowded at least on a Tuesday night. I would recommend for cocktails/beer and food.

This is our second visit to Iron Horse. It's location is great for when we attend concerts across the street at Ace of Spades. Great beer and drink selection as well. I had a pizza and my wife had the Bouillabaisse.
