This place has it all... Great selections of Bourbon and Wine. If you love a good cocktail, they have some very creative and delicious options. Creative and delicious food prepared by Chef Kevin .

Amazing date spot in Atlantic City. Erin our waitress was informative and funny. Brian the bartender made the best cocktail I’ve ever had (the last word). 5 stars all the way.

The Iron Room was so over-rated. It was way over priced and the food was awful. I ordered the bouillabaisse. It had three clams, the smallest shrimp I have ever seen, a very small piece of fish and 85% potato’s. It was such a disappointment!

Absolutely fantastic meal in a great restaurant away from the touristy vibes of the Boardwalk and casinos. Everything we had was amazing, including the pierogies and the udon truffle mac and cheese. Our server Jennifer was awesome and the specialty cocktails are well worth it as well. Will certainly go back!

Nice place for cocktails and wine. Very small and loud in the dinning area. We tried several items on the small plate menu -- yes, they were small! Burger and hand-cut fried were good. May try some specials next time.

Worth at last one visit because the inside is so intriguing, but probably not worth a return visit unless you're into bourbons. Looks like a dive from the outside, and parking is a problem, but the inside of the restaurant will transform you into the middle of a very old wine store, with racks of bottles displayed/stored on one wall, and a large cooler on another. Went for Restaurant Week, and although we heard our server tell another table that they were offering their best, most popular items on the RW menu, we weren't overly impressed. The udon mac and cheese was the best thing of our meal. My bacon was one VERY thick slice of nicely charred bacon, but when you get right down to it, a piece of bacon has streaks of pure fat, or streaks of very tough meat. My fried chicken dinner was just that -- four small pieces of the requested dark meat on a plate. No garnish, no sides. And no seasoning in the coating of the chicken. I ordered a Veg. to go with it, and it was a very overpriced ($12) artsy display of a few vegetables, more an art project than something good to eat. My husband had the chimichurri hangar steak, good, and cooked rare as requested. Dessert? Meh. Not bad at all, just nothing that was restaurant-impressive. SO, overall, we were pleased with our experience, but it was not so exceptional that we would choose to go back.

Room was tight fit. Heard every word of customer conversations at tables near us.

Food was edible. Like bread with meal. It wasn’t part of experience.

Took long time to get check at end meal.

The venue is very small with limited seating, so elbows are always banging into others. Discrete conversation is impossible. We were initially seated in a dark, claustrophobic corner. We couldn't even read the menu. Sadly, another couple was seated there later, also complained, but no other table available. Personally, I would not have stayed. There should not be a table in that spot. We went during restaurant week, and my entree was not the best food I've enjoyed there on other visits.

It’s a nice small cozy restaurant. It’s seems designed for romantic date because the lights are dim and candles on the table. It’s low noise and the food is elegantly presented. The food was delicious, but they didn’t have a lot of choices on the menu. I really liked the croquets as an appetizer and the udon Mac and cheese was good. I had the steak and asparagus.

Loved the intimate ambiance and. Service was great. Unfortunately, the food and cocktail were overpriced for the portion. Martini glass small in size. Ordered lamb chops. Only 4 and small in size. The star of the plate was the potato side and dry string beans. I thought I was paying for the lamb chops? The bouillabaisse had a lovely broth but lacking in size.

I had a wonderful time here. We went on a quiet snowy Friday night and did the 4 course meal with wine pairing option, which was was a great value for the food you get for the price. The atmosphere is so comfortable and cool, and they had a great wine and cocktail selection. I will definitely come back.

Our waitress was so fun and courteous we wished she could’ve joined us for dinner! She made excellent recommendations to add on the Mac n cheese and pierogies for the table to share because they are the most popular dishes. I could’ve eaten that truffle mac’n’cheese all night. The key lime pie creek brûlée blew my mind. Everyone in my party was extremely happy with our food, the whiskey flights and the cocktails.

Disappointing to say the least, expensive for what you get. Missing ingredients in the bouabaisse (crab and potatoes), the hanger steak was ok, nothing to write home about, the udon Mac & cheese is the best thing on the menu, by far. The kobe burger is second.

Bottom line, if you want a burger or Mac & cheese, it's great. Drinks are good and an extensive wine collection.

The atmosphere is nice, trendy and upscale for Atlantic City. Unfortunately, we are local, eat at different places every week, we won't be back! I heard about the Iron Room two years ago and finally went. What a disappointment!

We were the only table in the main dining room we had to sit with our coats on. Wait for drinks too long. Food took too long to get. Then the special rabbit with gnocchi stew gnocchi were like rocks. Felt uncomfortable sending back. Positive side your portions were increased so I had ordered Mac and cheese which was delicious.
