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

The place was packed when we arrived due to a concert across the street. The staff was still very attentive, we were seated quickly and the food was great!

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.

Went here for Valentine’s Day and the menu was good. Really liked that they didn’t make us stick to a prefix menu like most places do.

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.

I had to wait a little bit even though we set a reservation, but I always enjoy the food. It was definitely worth traveling through the storm and traffic to have dinner. Our server was great and made it worth while.

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.

Our group of ten enjoyed the food and setting at Iron horse grill. Only problem was lack of utensils. We had to ask for basic items (spoons, knives etc) Server explained that it was a busy wkend and restaurant was trying to get bk on track and place settings (napkins/utensils) were still being addressed....

Subpar Experience at Iron Horse
Been to this restaurant about 10 times in last couple years and first time, I have ranked them so poorly.

Experience started off very good, quick to the table and initial drink/appetizer ordered taken and delivered quickly.

After that service was very slow and unattentive. Took about 20 minutes after we ordered a second round of drinks for the drinks to arrive.

The food that arrived was definitely not up to the normal standards of Iron Horse, and was just okay at best.

They have an outstanding menu. Poke Nachos, Korean Fried Chicken, Steak Eggs n' Cakes, Luau Shrimp Salad, all were wonderful. Also, a great beer, wine and cocktail. You won't be disappointed here.

Overall, I love this place. The way it's set up is great and the outdoor dining is nice. The service was great and friendly, especially since everyone was either celebrating graduations or Father's Day. The only thing I could say is that, I made a reservation for 1:45 and we our table was not cleaned off and ready until about 2:00. However, I understand it was busy and it's not their fault that they have to wait for tables to be open and free from their previous guests. Thank you and I will be visiting again.

Our big group had reservations for 12:30 and wasn’t seated until 1:00. Then it took another half hour to order our food. I get that they were really busy but what’s the point of making reservations when we had to wait a half hour? It was just frustrating since we had a couple kids with us and we didn’t end up eating until 1.5 hours after our reservation time.

We arrived on Father’s Day morning excited to have breakfast at Iron Horse Tavern. This wasn’t my first time here but it was the first visit for my husband and our 2 girls. We arrived to find out our seats were outside which we didn’t mind considering we placed our reservations the day before. My reasoning for the low rating is because my husbands wings came out undercooked and bloody. My husband instantly lost his appetite. When brought to our waitress’ attention she didn’t apologize. She just asked if he wanted another order or to have it taken off the bill. I loved this restaurant so much before this but we most likely won’t be returning.
