We had extremely poor service! I was the first to arrive in my party and they made me wait 10 minutes before they sat me. Then no one came over to my table for 15 minutes! I didn’t get to order a drink or even get water served to me. Our service was super slow and we had to ask multiple people multiple times when we needed something. We complained to the manager and he offered to take off our appetizer. After a 3 hour meal we had forgotten this and didn’t even realize the appetizer was still on the bill til after we left!

Great food and ambiance! Service was great! It was very warm outside so it was a little warm inside as well.

We had friends in town and took them out to Iron Horse. It was the worst service I have had at a restaurant since I can remember. It took at least 10 - 15 minutes to get each drink ordered (beer). They didn't come by to see if we needed anything else. We flagged them down to order Beignets and it took 20 minutes. We asked for our bill and it never came. I had to get up and go ask again. We sat at 6pm and didnt leave until 10pm. Food was okay but not worth the wait. We have been here multiple times, and this will be the last. There is too many other options in downtown Sac to settle for this.

Great and prompt service, and our waitress was nice and very attentive. We had an early reservation, as we were catching a show at Ace of Spades (perfect location). It was a party of 5, and we were seated and served right away. The cocktail choices were vast and fun, and my friends enjoyed their crazy cocktails. (Most having two). I stuck with a standard Templeton Rye, but was stoked to see they had Hendricks Orbium Gin (which I forgot to try, as we ended up rushing-out to see the opening act)
I can only speak for myself, but my friends seemed to enjoy their food. I was a little bummed, as I really wanted a Beyond Burger, as those are hard to find, but they were out. Apparently Burger King took all the stock (according to our server). So, I made a snap decision to get a flatbread BBQ chicken. The flatbread was ok - the sauce didn’t seem to have been cooked into the pizza, but maybe poured on. The crust wasn’t amazing, but it was ½ off due to the happy hour - so, all good. I’m not a foodie, so I don’t feel I’m qualified to elaborate beyond my initial impression of the meal. I will def come back when I see another show at Ace, and hopefully they’ll have the Beyond Burger, or take it off the menu, so as to not get my hopes up...

But please next time when a wacko comes in to your restaurant throwing chairs and flatware at ppl DO call 911, NOT the non emergency number. It could have went bad fast. But other than that incident. The food and restaurant overall was great. I’ll be returning !
Thank you!

Amazing food and service. Would highly recommend going during Happy Hour (3-5PM). Regular portions for half the price.

It was a great place to celebrate Father’s Day...the food was great per usual. The service was okay. They were busy but several open tables. We requested a high chair when the reservation was made and three separate times for my 20 month old. Made it difficult to enjoy while wrangling a toddler.

We have visited Iron Horse many times. We decided we were going to come here for Father’s Day. The service was really awesome. Taylor did a really great job making sure that our mimosa were constantly full and checking on us as a whole. She was very pleasant and very attentive.

When we received our food it was cold. Not sure if it had been sitting for a while but all of our food was cold. The only thing that was really warm was this you’re up for our waffle.

Great location that 's not exactly downtown, but close enough. Perfect for eating and catching a gig at the Ace of Spades just across the street. Plenty of parking on a mid week event. There is a garage nearby, but it's rather expensive for Sacramento area so avoid the garage if you can

Our service was great...the server was friendly, gave great recommendations and came back to check in on us on a regular basis. We didn't wait long for our meal and all three of us got the breakfast board....which has always been my favorite there. They have inside and outside dining. We ate outside and the weather was beautiful. Although outside dining is right next to the street, we didn't find the cars or noise distracting (or even noticeable).

The food and the drinks are great! Only downfall is the parking, which they can't help at all. But if you want to go, leave time to find a space!!

The food was great and the service was a little slow. The pours on the cocktails were marginal. When you pay a good amount for a cocktail you should be able to enjoy the drink.

We had a large party and most everything that was ordered was great. I had the salmon salad and the dressing lacked flavor and salt. My husband had the Cubano and it was excellent, well seasoned and nicely crisped. The mac n cheese with Chorizo was excellent, the jalapeno option was lacking flavor. Overall I would return again.

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.
