This time we sat on the patio for lunch and last time it was dinner. Cheeseburger and nachos were amazing. During lunch they had “bird security” which was a hawk. That was cool.

The place was empty. The server was nice enough. The food was greasy. The bread for our sandwiches was so drenched in butter. Almost inedible. The setting was nice.

Our expectations were quite high upon arrival. The reality was quite different.

We had to wait 15 minutes past our reservation time for the table. The menu was quite limited and the service was slow. The ambiance was the one saving grace.

For the price & location, we expected a lot more from the Princess. To give a fair evaluation of our experience is pushing it.

James, our server, made us feel welcome and cared for. We never had to ask for attention, he was very attentive. Prices are high for families $25 average for breakfast meal. Food was good. They sat a large group by us and it made the noise level high. There was another area where no one was sitting and they could have sat us apart from each other - I think that would have been nicer.

The waitress should have known the specials on Thanksgiving Day. We really wanted thanksgiving turkey and stuffing but she told us it wasn’t available and then the table next to us got it while we ate grilled cheese and turkey sandwiches I was bummed to say the least. Won’t go back.

Nowhere on the website did it say that the breakfast menu and "all day" menu are not available on the weekends. Website should clearly indicate "buffet breakfast only" on weekends . $28 for pancakes and fruit?! 👎🏼

Food was good, but not sure it was worth what we paid. The fish & chips I ordered, I thought was great. But the burger my husband ordered said it was just 'ok'. The pizza my son ordered, was so spicy he couldn't eat it. The staff is beyond outgoing! Very friendly. The waiter came back to check on everything several times, but not to the point where it was over doing it. Overall, I'd go back & give it another shot.

Made a reservation for 9:15 brunch. Arrived approx 7-8 min early. Hostess apologized because she did not have a table for us so we were asked to wait in the waiting area for about 10-15 min. My husband had the buffet. I chose not to have the buffet because it didn't seem that good of quality for the price. (For example, the breakfast potato option was jo jo style potato wedges.) I ordered the eggs Benedict. They were able to substitute the bacon for avacado and tomato for no extra charge. Our server seemed busy so he was not as attentive as I would have liked but he was very nice when he did come by our table.

We had reservations so we got sat immediately, but the place is a bit cozy so there started to be quite a crowd at the door after awhile. Food was good, but the server was a little absent. Noise level was a mid-level roar due to the vaulted ceilings and the place was a bit hard to find since the entrance is under ground level.

Family wanted to have dinner before attending the resorts holiday light display. We had a 4:30 reservation, and upon our arrival there were only 2 other parties dining. We waited 15+ minutes before anyone came over to take our order, and only after we got up walked over to hostess to ask for our server. One of us ordered a salad with chicken- it came out with no chicken! Another guest ordered a salad with the salmon- came out with no salmon! Yes really, when the proteins were delivered to the table the chicken was ice cold out of the refrigerator, and had to be sent back to be warmed.
3 other meals came with fries, we had to ask 3 times for ketchup and were just about done before we finally received it,
Portions are small and unimpressive for price
To be fair the waiter did remove the charge for the salad with the chicken, which was nice and the proper thing to do.
I was going to take another party there next week, but have decided not to go back there due to lack of service, and food quality
Actually left feeling hungry!
It put a damper on our holiday festivity

It was ok for a hotel restaurant but I wouldn't recommend. It was way over priced for the quality of food. And really no ambiance. I appreciate the balloons and dessert for my daughters birthday. That was a special touch I didn't expect and it made her feel special. But the whole atmosphere was that of an Applebee's. With a bill over $225 for 4 people (2 of them kids). Something doesn't match up here.

After not so great service on a prior visit, Stephanie the Manager made sure our future visits went well. The service improved dramatically and certainly is a fine breakfast spot if you are in the Scottsdale area.

The food was tasty and high quality. The menu was somewhat limited: primarily pizzas and sandwiches. I had the prime rib one of the few entrees and it was excellent. Not a place for a romantic evening but great for casual dining. My only complaint is that we were seated adjacent to exterior door and staff kept propping the door open and it allowed a very cold breeze where I was sitting. Not a problem most evening in Scottsdale but a cold evening a distraction.

In April I took a friend to eat her during a stay, really liked it. In July another stay prompted me to do my nephew's birthday dinner for 14 here as well ( picky kids), everbody enjoyed it. On Nov 28th, I chose to eat at Ironwood again as my family and I were spending the evening at the Ice Rink and other festivites at the Fairmont. My five boys loved the pizza, chicken and hands down the best burger ever ( according to the 13 yr old). For a starter the adults had Carne Carnitas Fries, had a nice kick, potatoes weren't soggy from the beef , cheese and other toppings. I had the Steak Sandwich, best I have ever had! Another had the burger and shares that sentiment; the Prime Rib was a tad fatty but it was at the edge, none of the beautifully cooked meat was lost, the veggies were steamed to perfection softened but with a bit of crispness. Our server was always there before we needed her and was nice enough to charge up my iphone when my charger failed. We sat inside but in warmer weather the patio is wonderful, stunning views of lagoons and golf course.

My husband and I were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary.
We went to the resturant on Saturday night after a day of sight seeing in Sedona.
The atmosphere was fun, festive and our table was surprisingly intimate.
Our waiter, Mike was a natural, nice and informative.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Ironwood American Kitchen.
