Made reservations for New Years Eve and was pleasantly surprised by Iron Works. I had the bacon infused meat loaf and it was excellent. My husband had a seafood dish which he enjoyed. We also had the lamb lollipops as an app. They were pricey and just okay.
My only complaint was our seats were sandwiched in between two other couples. We should have requested something a bit more private.

We’ve been here a few times and it was always good. However, this last time was really great! The food was the best we had from this restaurant, our waitress was very kind and welcoming, and the overall atmosphere was calm and cozy... and decorated for the holidays!

Everything was outstanding! The Beef Wellington special was unbelievably good. PLEASE MAKE IT A REGULAR MENU ITEM! :-) Calamari app and flat iron steak entree was excellent, too. But the bread pudding dessert blew my socks off. This place is one of my new favorites. Waiter John was outstanding.

Our group of three couples had a lovely meal with appetizers, the food was very tasty and good-sized portions. A variety of items were ordered and no complaints about taste were heard. Our only issue was the fact they had info (either on their Facebook page or website) that they had a "gluten free" menu. They currently do not have one (and that was the reason we chose this restaurant, as one person is gluten intolerant). The customer did have a conversation with our server, Nicole, who did an excellent job of assisting her in making a choice. She was quite knowledgeable and knew the restaurant did not have a separate fry-o-lator for gluten-friendly items. That was really important, and they get high marks for server education!

Quinoa veg salad surprisingly good in a place that’s more of a burgers and beer vibe. Very close to Hampton Inn, Hyatt Place, and attached to Hilton Garden Inn, if you are staying near the airport.

First time here and had a really good experience. Really cool brick interior with some history to the building. Nice beer selection, the Old Fashioned I ordered was delicious. My burger was excellent as well. Menu looked really good. Service was right on. Went before a show at The Gamm Theater’s new location. Will DEFINITELY go again!

Love the "Appy Hour" with 1/2 price appetizers until 6:00 pm 7 days a week. Started with RI Stuffies which were loaded with clams and very tasty. Caesar salad good portion for sharing. Pizza cooked extra crispy just as we ordered. It seems we've never had the same waitress twice no matter how many times we've eaten here, but the service is always spot on, friendly and efficient...one of the reasons we keep coming back.

Ironworks has never failed me. The service is always outstanding and the food delicious. I have brought friends from all over RI and out of state. I have had Board meetings at Ironworks. My personal favorites are the Brussels sprouts, calamari and grilled pizzas.

Appetizer took 40 minutes. I ordered meatloaf and my husband ordered the paella and both were very dry. The service was very slow. Our waitress was nice but took too long for everything. The atmosphere was great and the restaurant was nice.

We had been to Ironworks about a month ago and we enjoyed the food. This trip back not so much. Even the Brussel sprouts which we loved were over cooked and did not taste the same. Two of us ordered the Stuffed Pumpkin special and thought it was tasteless. The meatloaf was just OK. All in all we will probably not be back for a while. Too bad. The menu looked promising.

Our dinner was very good-delicious mussels for a starter and generously sized lobster rolls-probably not made in their kitchen from live lobsters which is typical of many restaurants that purchase the meat from a purveyor, but nicely seasoned and well presented. Only wish that it was a little quieter.

We had heard that the food and atmosphere here were really good, and in that we were not disappointed. Of course, finding parking in the lot was a definite challenge - we eventually had to "make" a place (even had no Handicap parking, and I'm in a wheelchair).
And tho our server was working hard, it took us 10 min to discover who our server was, 15 min to order, and 35 min to get a sandwich and a bowl of linguine...Quite a long time for 2 very simple meals.
They did offer my husband a free beer for our troubles, but being there almost 2 hours was not what we had in mind after a very long work day. So we would highly recommend the food, and the place is lively and interesting...we would just suggest that you go when you have LOTS of time for a meal.

The food was definitely the highlight. Two of us enjoyed the short ribs Bolognese, two enjoyed the linguine with clams, and one enjoyed the chicken bacon ranch pizza. We all were very happy with our choices. The service was slow from start to finish. We had to alert the server we were ready to order after waiting quite awhile. The food was served within a reasonable amount of time, but it was a long time before the server checked on us and asked about additional drinks. When it was time to pay, I ended up asking the hostess to take the check with my payment because we were tired of waiting for the server to return for payment.
