First time there. Food was very fresh. You can tell they take pride in what they do. Everything we had was outstanding!

Great food and a fun place to hang out. Quiet enough to have a conversation, but not formal AT ALL, even though the food is very suited to a high end, dress-up-to-go restaurant. We really enjoyed our meals and the drinks were very interesting!

The restaurant is set back off the road in converted rail cars. The inside is beautiful and relatively quiet. Our server was quick and polite and the food was excellent and not overly expensive.

This was our second time at the Iron Duck, and we really enjoyed our meal. It is greatly appreciated the time taken to address a food allergy ahead of time. My parents were in town for the weekend and this was a great spot to take them for a meal that wasn't 'too fancy', but also wasn't 'overly casual'. It hits the in-between mark perfectly! Thank you !

We celebrated my husbands 40th Birthday here. We had our boys along 8 and 5. They split the build your own burger and the kitchen was generous in giving them both a full serving of fries. I had the salmon which was fantastic and my husband loved the duck. He said it was so good he would have licked the plate clean if it was socially acceptable to do that! They also were really generous in that the staff bought a drink and dessert for his birthday. So many amazing choices definitely recommend!

We ordered fries and portobello fingers for apps. The waitress however did not bring us the fries. We both had the filet with mashed potatoes for our entrees. Mine was cooked perfectly. His was a little on the well side. Also his steak was significantly smaller than mine and looked like they had cut a chunk off the side. We were far from impressed by the mashed potatoes. It was very obvious that they had used potato flakes instead of homemade mashed potatoes. So disappointing! I’m all for giving a restaurant a second try if the food isn’t perfectly executed or the waitress makes a mistake, like forgetting our fries, however they clearly are skimping on quality ingredients. I don’t see that changing.

Hello Caitlin. Thank you so much for dinning with us. We appreciate your feedback. Our sincere apologies that your experience was not at the level that we strive for. However, I can assure you that we do use the highest quality of ingredients, and our staff works very hard to make the whipped mashed potatoes from scratch. We do not have any sort of pre-made or processed food on the premises, and we never will. Please reach out and I would be happy to discuss your experience further. Thank you!

Main courses were great. The desserts were average. I had a cake that was very dry and was refrigerated and served cold. Husband had gelato that was very hard, also plated in advance? We would try another time, but pass on desserts.

Very Unique place with a great vibe & atmosphere!
Sat at the bar before dinner. Fun conversation with Eddie, our Bartender! Enjoyed a cocktail and some good wine.
Menu options were quite varied and had us wanting to try several items! Both dinners we had were very good.
Rylee, our server was super sweet and very attentive.
The GM, Caleb, stopped over to say hello and was extremely nice suggesting a bottle of wine we hadn’t thought of - great selection!! (Thanks Caleb!)
If you live in the Green Bat area, you MUST go! You have a real gem in your own backyard!
We will definitely be back.

Good social distancing at bar and masks worn by all service personnel. We had a large booth within one on of the boxcars and had no one within 20 feet of us.
THE BEST THING FOR ME WAS: GLUTEN FREE!!! The cheese curds, cookies, tempura and clearly labeled entrees were gluten free and excellent. Our server was able to talk to the chef about making a non gluten free entree gluten free as well. Having celiac, I am not used to getting appetizers like this without making them myself, so it was an unexpected treat.

Staff was professional, attentive and engaging! Thanks to all for a great birthday celebration!

The cost was very reasonable. The jambalaya and duck were wonderful. The specialty drinks were tasty (cranberry spiced reduction drinks were festive). I really appreciated the number of non-alcoholic beer and mocktail as well.

Great place, we will visit again soon!

High expectations were dashed with terrible food. Wings were over brined and way over cooked. Best part of the meal were the French fries. Place want buddy but device was lacking. Traveled from Appleton for the botanical gardens. Wouldn’t go back.

Restaurant was very clean and spaced out. Employees wore masks. The drinks at the bar were good. We sat at our scheduled time. We ordered a salad and app and then our entree. All the dishes were very good. The reason for the lower star on service was because of the time it took to get our food. We sat at our table for at least an hour and maybe a little more. It took awhile for our entree to come. However that is our only complaint. We would go back.

We met another couple for our first time to the Iron Duck in Howard.

The food was excellent and so was the wine & beer!

I had the salmon and he had the Jambalaya. Both wonderful & tasty with our beverages!

We will definitely will be back!

Appetizers and drinks were great. Food was outstanding, and the waitress was very attentive. Ambiance was great, lots of privacy and very little noise from the packed bar area if desired. Would definitely eat there again!

Delicious chef-created food. During our meal (outside seating is very nice) we saw the chef go out to the garden and pick some produce. Can't get more fresh than that!

Food was excellent. Teres Major steak was cooked and seasoned perfectly. Wait staff very attentive and friendly. Only criticism pertained to Hostess who seemed disorganized and unprofessional. She did not make a good a first impression when entering the restaurant. Would definitely return.

Everything is absolutely amazing. The food and drinks are phenomenal. The staff is phenomenal. If I had an endless amount of money, I would eat there every night. I no longer have to ask "where are we going for dinner tonight?" And then have to pick between 3 or 4 of our favorite places. Its automatically the iron duck now.

Bitter cold here tonight. We were seated at a table on an outside wall. It was so cold I needed to cover my legs with my coat to be able to enjoy an otherwise great dinner.
