    Our server did a great job of anticipating our needs and being available to us. The ambiance in the front room is great. Not as good in the banquet area. HOWEVER, we got done with our activities an hour before our reservation, and they still seated us promptly by using the banquet area. The steak and ribs were good. The chicken fingers were excellent. The sliced brisket was fatty but we forgot to order lean brisket. Overall it was a great family experience and they accommodated all our needs even tho we were an hour early!

    service staff very immature interrupted active conversations did not wait for a opening to interrupt. when interrupting did not use any soft skills such as saying “excuse me” or making any kind of gesture. food was fair. sides seemed poorly matched with the main course but i could have just been suprised by the full sized okra that still had its core yet deep fried without any seasoning in the breading. the greet staff said thanks for coming and because i was in active conversation again with my date i responded with a nod. that seemed unsatisfactory to the greet staff so the forcefully and semi aggressively shouted thanks for coming again in which i made eye contact with the young ladies and nodded again mouthing thank you as not to speak over my date who was actively talking to me in the moment. for BBQ do not come here. stick to your local smoke houses. for dates do not come here try anywhere else. if you’ve never had BBQ and you would like to pay a tad over margin for your family to have BBQ inspired cuisine. this is the place.

    It’d been a while since I’ve visited Iron Star but the talking up of the prime rib, Mac n cheese, and whole okra didn’t disappoint the others brought with me. We tried the burnt ends queso that had great flavor. The dinner was delicious and everyone cleaned their plate.

    One of my favorite restaurants!! Went this evening with my husband (his first time) to eat before going to see Wicked. I made reservations but we showed up early and were immediately seated. Katie was our waitress and she was AMAZING! Very attentive to our needs and we never had to ask for anything. Iron Star is excellent for a work lunch, date night, family night or just drive by and stop. You won’t be disappointed! As always it was incredible, great food, drinks and dessert. Something for everyone! Highly recommend!!

    Upon arrival we set at the bar and had a mixed drink. We have collectively cut back on our alcohol consumption, as we are not total T totalers but for health reasons we sparingly use alcohol now. The drinks were great, both having a whisky mix. Old fashion and a drink called sweeter weather. After that, we set down at our table and were able to float our bar tab to our table. We tried the pimento cheese as our starter, and ordered the Wednesday special (baked potato brisket) and a prime rib. The prime rib came with two sides, so we tried the fried okra and the Mac and cheese. delicious...we didn't order any desert, but did try the fresh corn muffins with a side of whipped butter and jalapeño jelly. We only had room for a half each and took the rest home for later. Iron Star is a fantastic place to eat!

    Nice place food was spot on and really great. The service was while it wasn’t great it was ok could have been more although it was a bit. I was on a second date with my very beautiful companion and we were seated next to a large birthday party going on with a few rowdy children so the seating could have been better. The food definitely made up for the short coming. It’s a great experience lace for a family type outing but not so much for an intimate date. It was an overall decent experience and I’d highly recommend the food

    Great service and over all vibe. The BBQ is very average! Having spent a lot of time eating BBQ in Austin and northern Texas, it doesn't quite compare, especially for the price. BBQ sauce on the side is store bought for sure. BANANA PUDDING IS BOMB!

    We had such a fantastic meal and new year’s celebration at Iron Star. We enjoyed their old fashioned and pomegranate margarita before the meal and then their incredible tenderloin wedge salad for our entrees. We finished the meal with their banana pudding, which we shared. It was late and our server kindly gave each of us one as she said it wouldn’t keep over the holiday. We couldn’t finish them and she brought us take-home containers for the rest. Service was fantastic throughout our meal. If you haven’t been her or been here in a while, this place is still fantastic!
