    Looks MUCH more fancy on line than in person! I thought I made reservations at a "nice" restaurant - dressy casual, based on the menu images and descriptions on line. Upon arrival, it looked nice, but was VERY casual when we walked in. The waitress was short and snippy, and when we asked if there were blue cheese stuffed olives for the Martini, she responded "that's too fancy for this place". Quality of food was fine, but nothing to rave about OR revisit. Service was prompt, but as friends gathering for the first time in months, we were visiting and catching up and our server was obviously in a hurry to get our order in and close for the night. Our reservations were for 8:15, and if that is too late for us to have a leisurely dinner, then please don't accept reservations after a certain time.

    This was a first time visit as tourists. A birthday dinner. The restaurants was SO loud. Nothing much you can control, but just be forewarned. We were a group of 6, so conversation was very difficult. A couple or maybe 4 would have been earlier to hear each other. Service was so rushed and impersonal. Our server was very pleasant, but it sort of stopped there. We order two beers and a bottle of wine and the deviled eggs. Wishing minutes the eggs arrived (so rushed) long before we even got our drinks. The wine service was severely lacking. The bottle arrived with two glasses. The other two “were being washed”!! Bottle opened, and glugged into both glasses. Minutes later two glasses were dropped off in the middle of the table. That was it. We placed and poured these two glasses. Wnen the food arrived, it was “auctioned off” with three people descending upon our table. It was so loud in the restaurant the servers literally yelled what they were holding waiting for us to claim it. Ridiculous and like a cafeteria. The tow Mac-n-Cheese dishes were more creamy than cheesy, but still okay to eat even though disappointing. The Caesar salad was okay. The others had burgers which they reported were okay. The sweet potato fries had “run out” (on a Friday night?), so substituted with delicious onion rings. I’ll give the place that. Good onion rings. Otherwise, what was supposed to be a special meal was even less ordinary than one of the many brew pubs in town. My suggestion, so as a pair or small group and enjoy a burger. Not sure if the restaurant can hold up more if you have a bit higher expectations.

    We've been coming to this location since 2000. And since it has become the Cast Iron Tavern, the food quality has improved drastically and is consistently good, the turnover in the waitstaff has been significantly decreased and it has become a place to take the family, both young and old!

    Noise level very high for a tavern. I counted 14 toddlers in the dining room. Food was good but they didn't have a special that was on their website just prior to arriving there.

    Great local spot. We had the candied bacon BLT and the Patrami Reuben. both delicious and well prepared. Great onion wings and sweet potato waffle fries. Excellent mixed drinks; try the Old Fashioned. Family spot, kinda small (it was raining so we couldn't sit outdoors) but comfortable, if small and noisy. Definitely will visit again.

    An absolute must! We LOVED the food and enjoyed sitting outside and all of the staff was super friendly and nice! The Candied Bacon is out of this world good, Deviled Eggs are super flavorful, the burrata, fried chicken and Colorado Chile were excellent. The chicken mac ‘n’ cheese was to die for! Great craft cocktails and beer list!!!

    The Mac n cheese was good, burger tasty but more so because of the toppings. Burger itself just ok. Service was great.

    My to go ox with more than half my food was in the to go box on the table. I went to the restroom for less than 2 minutes and upon my return it was thrown out. It was clearly on the table in the to go box. Bad attitude from server and hostess who threw it out.

    Our first dinner on vacation. I had salmon and husband had a sirloin. Both were very good. Well cooked, delicious. We ordered a drink, but didn’t like it so sent it back. Waitress insisted on bringing us another and same bitter taste. We ordered a bread pudding instead. It was delicious.

    This was our first time at Cast Iron Tavern. Food was excellent. They have different specials on different days. Last night I had the short rib shepherds pie. Very tasty, I would highly recommended it. It got a bit noisy but that's what you would expect from a tavern. Will return.

    Second visit. After trying the burger on our first visit it was so good we took our parents. They confirmed it was the best restaurant burger they have had in a long time. In my opinion Cast Iron tavern is in the running for best burger 🍔! We tried the ribs and chicken also and they were excellent also. The service is great as well. Cast Iron Tavern is now on our go to list!

    Great food, they are not skimpy on the portion sizes. It was very busy, we had a great server and felt like we could hold conversations with out having to raise your voice. I will be back!
