Our party of three senior ladies had a good time and considered this a favorite spot to celebrate special occasions. Each of us has different meal choices and the menu accommodates us. The staff and restaurant are very accommodating to our specific needs - low lighting, easy access and delicious food. During the holidays, however, the noise level can make it difficult to carry on personal conversations. Otherwise, we have always been pleased with the quiet intimacy.

Although we live in Baltimore City, we drove to this restaurant after multiple recommendations from friends. It lived up to the hype and many locals love it and are regulars. The wine selection is very good and you see wines you don't normally see at other restaurants, plus they offer flights! Our appetizers were brussel sprouts (very good) and a trio medley including baba ganoush (good). Main courses were a seafood stew (okay) and veggie pasta (good). The desserts were banana break pudding (very good) and creme brulee (excellent). They offered a charcuterie and cheese board, which I wished we got. The service was awesome - from being accommodating in pushing our reservation time, to the lovely note and champagne toast for our anniversary, to our very friendly and happy server. I wouldn't hesitate to come back to try other items on the menu, and the service can't be beat, all for reasonable prices.

Iron Bridge is one of my go-to restaurants since I can always rely on good service and excellent food. It's nice that the menu changes with the seasons and that there are specials, too; this would seem to indicate that the food is fresh. (I was a bit surprised, though, to hear from a server that the flatbread appetizer isn't made in house, although I think that's the exception.) The creme brulee is as good as advertised; it's a fantastic way to end a meal.

Husband, friends and I met up for a week day lunch. I'd seen their reviews and our Columbia friends suggested meeting for lunch there. It is a really cozy restaurant. I made reservations and wasn't sure they were necessary for a lunch weekday but was glad I did. We had a table for four by the bar. There seemed to be a slightly larger area with tables to the side area which I understood could be reserved for private parties. There were a few tables for two tucked away for a sweet quiet romantic get-away. The service and food were awesome. I wish we lived a little closer because this would definitely be a neighborhood regular!

It was a wonderful dining experience. Though the dining area is tight for space, it feels more cozy than crowded. The lighting is rather dim, but it adds to the ambiance. As for the menu, I enjoyed a brie topped hamburger that was excellent. The menu is varied and much is locally sourced. It's an excellent option for dining in Columbia.

Went here on a Friday night. Was able to get a seat at the bar. Place was pretty full, but not to loud. Their wine selection is always very diverse and well selected. The selection rotates often so there is always a great wine available. We had the grilled octopus which is a regular dish there and very tender with a tad of char. Very delicious. On their rotating menu they had cioppino. This is some of the best cioppino that I have had. The mussels and clams were done perfectly. There was a nice portion of white fish as well. Great dish. The staff are always attentive and helpful to ensure that your wine selection is paired well with your meal. Great experience.

Been a little while since our last visit and everything was excellent. We had the opa, lamb chops and cioppino for entrees, along with flat bread and fall greens for appetizers. The best thing may have been the apple crisp. Looking forward to another visit.

My most recent trip was a family night out with my wife and in laws. Everyone loved the food and the Brussels sprouts were a hit, as usual. Everyone was able to find a unique meal that they really enjoyed and the drinks were great. The only hiccup was that one of the seasonal vegetables, a squash of some sort, hadn't been cooked long enough. As a result there were some tough bites when eating our veggies. It affected two of the five of us. I've never had anything like this happen at Iron Bridge prior to this so it won't stop me from coming back again. We love this place.

I have been to the Iron Bridge many times, but last nights dinner was fantastic! It may have been that dinner service this past Saturday was slow by IB standards. We both got the steaks me the hanger and my best friend the Rib eye. Unfortunately we did ask for the steaks to be rare and hers was served more on the medium well side. She said it was soo good she continued to eat it! Will happily return to the Iron Bridge!

This is a reliably enjoyable restaurant. You won't find one like it in an urban setting like D.C. or Baltimore. It's a somewhat rustic and fairly quiet atmosphere. You select wines from the attached wine store. The menu offers fairly standard fare - kind of updated comfort food, well made, and enjoyable. I've driven there several times from downtown Baltimore (it takes 25 - 40 min, depending on traffic), and will return.
