Hadn't been in several years. So we took a chance on outdoor dining with friends on a cool spring evening, and am glad we did. We're all foodies and found the selections interesting and well prepared. A generous blistered shishito appetizer made our Japanese friend happy (and me too), and the cocktails were delicious -- I had a bourbon and blood orange concoction I'll try to reproduce at home. The sage-rubbed lamb was fork-tender and perfectly cooked, and hit for two of us, and the grilled radicchio and asparagus went nicely with the pureed sweet potatoes. The recommended wine pairings were nicely matched. A creme brulee with a bit of chocolate ganache was a wonderful (but probably unnecessarily calorie-laden) finish with some good black coffee. Our table also enjoyed the paella and the charcuterie board (one was doing keto). We were the last ones there, but never felt rushed and made sure our wait staff knew we appreciated their work.

I have been a regular patron since Iron Bridge opened. (I was younger then.) I consider it the best place to dine alone, or even better, with friends in this area. It's like going to "Cheers", only with better food and a wine list. I have missed being able to indulge my Iron Bridge 'habit' due to the corona virus pandemic, but having recently received my 2nd Moderna shot, I intend to resume my regular visits.

Our family went for Easter Brunch. Adult children and parents. We love Iron Bridge for dinner and drinks and apps. I must say I was wondering how they would do for brunch. We tried a lot of items off and nothing disappointed. The crew started with various cocktails - amazing spicy Bloody Mary, and a couple others. All fabulous. Then we had the flatbread to share. Large portion and delicious. We had the smoked salmon, shrimp gazpacho, eggs Benedict, the quiche, and 2 servings of French toast. Wow. Was everything tasty. Had coffee after the initial cocktail and it was hot and fresh.
Great experience.

Service was excellent, reservations were honored at scheduled time. Waiter was well-informed but talked a bit too much and too fast. Food was average, considerably below expectations at these prices. Deserts were sub-par.

I was a regular customer of this restaurant for years before moving out of state. I just returned for the first time in a couple of years and am pleased to find the Foo, wine selections and service as wonderful as I remember. If you are a fan of Brussel sprouts or octopus they are always excellent, regardless of the seasonal predation. I will be back consistently again!

Had such an amazing experience at Iron Bridge. Everything from the food to ambiance to service - A+ job. The food was delicious. We ordered the charcuterie board which was perfectly balanced and a great way to start a meal. We got the steak frites and scallops. Everything was cooked to perfection and the flavors worked beautifully together. Our service Johnny was charming and attentive.

This is literally the best worst kept secret in Howard county. It’s a pure gem. The food was perfection and so were the drinks (non-alcoholic mixes were also included on the menu and i got to try one and i was SO good). The food presentation was amazing, every morsel was to be savored with complex yet delightful bits in every bite. The whole visit was nothing short of an experience. Then the music was bar none, with likes of Sam Cooke, Gladys Knight, and Ray Charles i felt the class and nostalgia of an era long gone. I certainly WILL be returning and cannot wait to experience the next thing they’ll have available!

I have driven by this place so many times but finally visited to celebrate our anniversary. I expected it to be extremely expensive but was pleasantly surprised at how reasonable the prices were. The service was top notch from everyone! From the person who gave us water, our waiter Collin, and all the waitstaff who checked up on us. The food was also exceptional. I love the variety of starters to satisfy any taste bud. The only reason I didn't give the food 5 stars is only because I didn't particularly like the Caesar salad, it was grilled on gas and I could taste it in the leaves, but that could be a personal preference. They switched it out immediately for a delicious spinach salad though. They truly made our anniversary dinner an experience and I cannot wait to come back in the future. Also, the to go wine deals were amazing!
