We all enjoyed our dinner. The waiter was nice but a little slow. When dining here be mindful the tip is already included with the meal. After dinner we enjoyed the live music they offer at ibar.

We are always impressed with our food and overall experience here. We wanted Cookie as our server, but unfortunately, she is no longer there. Nicholas was our waiter and was fantastic.

Nice to offer many wines but need to have a few more below $100 a bottle as you feel a bit ripped off, watch as we were initially charged 50% more than on the wine list for a bottle. Not much of an apology made either when we highlighted this. If they insist on adding 18% gratuity why not just include that in headline prices in the menu as it is not optional. Steaks tasty, sides not very big as we were told each would serve a family or 3 adults, only just about enough for 2 on most of the ones we ordered. Nice atmosphere, but not really the attention and service to match the price you pay.

The entire staff from the hostess to the food runner was fantastic! The food was wonderful and extremely enjoyable in the quiet atmosphere. David Kaplan (The GM) went above and beyond to ensure that we had a memorable evening! We will definitely be back! Thanks again IRONWOOD!

Overall me n my date were satisfied with the overall presentation of the establish however, the staff weren’t in the best of moods at the time of my visit. I’m not particularly familiar with the restaurant itself but overall it was not something to let get in the way of the night. It would be a bit more helpful to have them have more of a sense of urgency in assisting guests when in need. I understand it can be long at nights but it should also be remembered that as an individual it was a choice of yours to sign up for these long nights.

We have enjoyed this restaurant many times. This particular visit lacked good service. Our waiter had a large table of 12 and our table & another table suffered for it. Our service was extremely slow. My husband’s baked potato was iced cold in the center & it took 10+ minutes for us to see our waiter to flag him down to tell him. He brought out another baked potato that was very hot on the outside but the center wouldn’t even melt soft butter. He never came back so we could tell him it was cold again. After sitting with our table cleared for several minutes (10+), I had to flag a manager as he was walking by to ask for dessert menus. My husband’s wine glass & my beverage were empty since the appetizers & we had to ask for more to drink when we finally placed our dessert orders. The table next to us were getting the same service & complaining amongst themselves. Other than the cold potato, our food was fabulous. In the past our service has always been great. I think the service was poor this time because the waiter was overwhelmed. It’s sad that we had to suffer because of it.

Service was terrible, server not attentive at all. Gratuity is added to every bill so there is no incentive to give good service when the server knows he's going to get 18% no matter how he pwrforms. It's a shame because the food was good, except the cold baked potato.

Steak was way over cooked. Replaced the steak but took over 20 min to get another Med/Rare filet out.
The rest of the table was almost finished with the meal.

So disappointed. The staff was deplorable and rude. Our waiter disappeared. We had clear our own dishes, couldn’t get drinks unless we got up and asked for a waiter and then when the waiter finally came by he asked “is there a problem?” YES!! You are rude and then we were charged 18% tip on a $1000 bill for a BUFFET!!!

We are spending Christmas vacation in the PGA resort in a rented condo. We made a reservation at the club restaurant, Ironwood Steak and a Seafood. The dinner turned out to be a buffet and it was mediocre at best. Moreover they charged me $85 per person and we were a party of 4. A complete waste of almost $500. Needless to say the service was awful!! The waiter never came to clear one plate and we had to put our used dishes on the table next to us which remained dirty throughout our dinner. The food wasn’t even good. Old Country Buffet is better. Yes, I’ve tried OCB once. PGA Resort should be ashamed of themselves. I will never go there again for food, drink or anything.

I have reached out to the manager requesting a return call to share by feedback - still waiting for that call.
Service was poor - we waited for 15 minutes before a drink order was even taken - same about about of time for coffee/ I had to flag down our waiter for silverware then waited ...
this was a Christmas buffet and none of the items were labeled and the staff personal manning the table didn’t speak English so she could not tell me the item.
I have eaten here before so that is why I chose this as my Christmas dinner- I will not make this mistake again. Very disappointing.

12/25/2017-Christmas Day Dinner
Excellent to Awesome experience. Presentation of the Buffet was outstanding; Very Festive and Energetic.
Choices of salads, appetizers, Desserts and main course were excellent. Main course was Hot and fresh and prepared to our liking. We had the Prime Rib, which was done to our liking. The risotto was delicious. The King crab, shrimp, and clams were fresh and chilled; with a variety of of toppings, i.e., mustard, cocktail, hot sauce.
Service was very attentive and courteous. Marty was our waiter. All in all a very enjoyable experience. Pleasantly surprised for a Holiday Buffet. Highly recommend.

We came to the Ironwood Grill for the purpose of taking my mother (who uses a wheel chair) out for Christmas lunch. The buffet was spectacular, if expensive. The service personnel were considerate and very helpful. The overall experience was very, very good.

This restaurant not only has always has excellent food, they will often cater to food allergies if you request it a few days in advance. The food has always been excellent. They have accommodated us with 10 or more people for Thanksgiving (excellent buffet by the way) over the years, including one family member with major food allergies. I recommend this restaurant highly.

The only dinner option at this resort hotel.
Very good wine list with lots of interesting bottles.
Sides were the stars - especially the Brussels sprouts, duck fat fries, and creamed spinach.
The strip steak was quite disappointing. Not very thick. Seemed more like something I would find at Outback although priced like Morton's or Ruth's Chris at $51.
With so many restaurant options within one mile of the resort, I don't know that I would return to this restaurant.

We live relatively close by PGA and have dined there on many occasions. We always seem to have problems with the wine list. Invariably, the wait staff cant find the wine we ask for and then the food and becerage director shows up and says his wait staff should have asked him and then the apologies start. This would be fine if it were once or twice - but always?! Tonights meal was just so so. Surf and turf was ok, not great. NY strip was grisly and overcooked. Mushroom side was overcooked to the extreme - looked like nuggets of pet food rather than plump mushrooms.
