First time to be back here since Covid. Tables were extremely spaced out - almost too much which made the space seem very empty. Their reservations were full so it is odd they haven't added more tables to accomodate more diners since they could have had more tables both inside and outside and still been distanced. Asked about cocktail special of the month. Server did not know and said it was her first day. She went to ask but never came back. Asked another server and she did not know either but came back and said "it is somthing fruity with vodka." Well that was not helpful. Ordered something else. Original server kept stopping by far too often at first and then when we were finally ready to order was nowhere to be seen. After a bit we did order and food arrived promptly and was delicious. If they could add some more tables and address service issues it would be great. Portions were far too large also. Ordered the dinner chicken fried steak special which only came with mashed pototoes which was odd. Would be great if they could offer a lighter portion since it came with 2 large pieces of steak and a huge pile of potatoes. Would have like one piece of steak, smaller portion of potatoes and a vegetable. We ordered a side to share which was fine but again - would be nice to have dinner portion with a vegetable in addition to the potatoes that does not require a take home box or eating far more that any one person should eat. If you have an event or are from out of town, you can't always take food home after dining.

One of my favs!! I LOVE their deviled eggs, the jalapeño bread, their brisket, and the Mac and cheese is THE best in the world. I basically love everything they have to offer.

Typically, I would rate this place 5-stars. My wife and I both had the filet and it was not as good as it was in the past. It was too “char” tasting and was a little thin. We should probably stick with the bbq. Both of our kids enjoyed their kids meals (burger & chicken fingers.

Father’s Day dinner was amazing just wish they hadn’t run out of ribs. Also they didn’t have lemonade for their Arnold Palmer which was a let down.
But the salmon was great. Mac and Cheese was fantastic!

Food was pretty good. Sides shined a bit more than the bbq as it was a little dry. There was a table in the side room with us that was playing their own music from their phone overtop of the music the restaurant itself was playing so that was very annoying and distracting. They did have the best peanut butter chocolate pie I've ever had!

This is the worst experience we have ever had here, even though the last time we were there the food wasn't very good. This time the food was awful, I had the tenderloin salad, the tenderloin must of been an extremely low grade, as it was very tough and basically no flavor. The "cheese ball" thing they stuck in the wedge salad was cold and hard and tasted nothing like blue cheese. My husband had the ribs and said they wee "OK". This was the first time we were seated in the back, I understand completely the social distancing and spreading everyone out, but that room has no ambiance what so ever. I don't think we will go back.

I made reservations, the restaurant was closed due to everything going on with the COVID-19 observance. But no one ever called, emailed, or even texted. I came up from Midland to meet people there for dinner but we ended up going elsewhere.

The building has a retro vibe and the decor is fun. We were greeted warmly and the tables are spaced far enough apart to feel we had some privacy, even in the open-concept setting. Our server was dull and seemed to be uninterested in us or in serving, which was surprising because it's her job. The food was underwhelming. The BBQ itself was boring. My smoked turkey sandwich was only a couple slices of turkey in between a bun. The cocktails were expensive and mostly sweet syrup; not many layers of flavor. The bread pudding for dessert was the best part of the meal. The only reason I would try Iron Start Barbeque again would be to order dessert for take out and skip the rest of the experience.

It was a cold evening and our table was close to the entry door, COLD. server was very pleasant, service was much slower than normal. Restaurant seem to be in over load with large party in back room. After asking for check it was slow. All servers seem to use one terminal. But will go back as food is good.

The ambiance is great and the location is easy to get to. The wait staff is very helpful and eager to please. We both had the combo platter (very good) and the fried okra that I think is the best I have ever had. We haven't been to the restaurant for a few months but will return shortly.
