Service was very slow. Food ok but has been better in the past. Rather pricey for small portions.

Ran out of my choice for main course and ran out of friends dessert choice. Food was only fair and not a good value. No where as good as previous visit

I usually don’t leave negative reviews, but I had heard so many good things about this place that on a rare child-less evening, my husband and I decided to go check It out. We ordered the flatbread pizza and the chicken samosas as appetizers which were fine; the flatbread was actually the best thing we had at the meal. My husband then ordered the pork chop and I had the pan seared halibut. It was… not good. The fish was a little dry and it was completely bland. They put it on top of a very watery (flavorless) broth. I mean the piece of fish was swimming in it with some artichoke hearts, onions, and fingerling potatoes that were also just boiled in plain water and thrown in there. It was really terrible. I did ask for something else to add to the meal and they brought me a creamy sauce that I dipped some of the food in to enjoy some flavor with my meal. To say I was disappointed in an understatement. I mean I was honestly surprised at how utterly flavor less the food was. My husband said the pork chop was also dry and just okay. It was covered in bbq sauce though so he could just dip it and eat it that way. We then had creme brûlée and the bread pudding. The creme brûlée was fine but it had a super thick coating of milk chocolate ganache at the bottom that was cloyingly sweet with the already sweet creme brûlée. Just none of the things I ate had any sort of balance. I was disappointed in the food. The service and the ambience were great though. We might go back for just apps and drinks but not the food.

I decided to check out this place for my bf bday on restaurant week and it was a great choice. I order the garlic shrimp as an appetizer and the seafood paella as main course. Both were delicious.
My bf ordered the salmon w fried green tomatoes and the halibut for main course. He really enjoyed it.
The desserts were great I ordered the crepe brûlée while he got the trio sorbet and a bonus chocolate lava cake for his bday
We tried 2 flight- Oakey donkey and we cab sauv this problem we enjoyed both

Very good food! The Pan Seared Scallops were great. The Seafood Paella was a little dry and there was no crusty rice. Mussels were very good. Crème Brulee was delicious. Waitress never check on us about needing a 2nd bottle of wine and didn't re-fill our water bottle. We did eventfully get her attention and after a while received the 2nd bottle of wine. We forgot to ask for the water and ended up going without at the end of the meal. Still an enjoyable meal.

We were blown away by the flavors and high level of service. I wish we tried the home grown fried green tomatoes but there were so many other delicious options for just the two of us. Rarely review restaurants so please know this was off the hook awesome.

We ate indoors and the tables were nicely spaced. I noticed that they wiped everything down thoroughly between patrons.
The restaurant week menu is their complete menu, which I like a lot! I am gluten free and Iron Bridge has gradually increased the number of gluten free options on the menu. Much appreciated! Everything was excellent. The beet salad was large and very tasty-- especially liked the combination with dabs of whipped stilton and crispy greens and pistachios. My husband had the PEI mussels and was very pleased with the broth and baguette served with them. We both enjoyed the seafood paella. The rice was perfect and there was quite a variety of flavors, lobster, shrimp, sausage and chicken all nicely spiced. The pace of dinner was relaxed. Service was good. Wonderful date night!

We enjoyed all of the food we ordered. I had the fried green tomato special and the paella. My husband ordered the beet salad and the halibut. For dessert, we shared the signature bread pudding. Thanks to the many bottles of wine available, we were able to find a red that paired well with our starters and entrees. Our server, Colin, suggested a sherry that was the perfect complement to the bread pudding. Colin was attentive yet unintrusive throughout our meal. Another outstanding experience at Iron Bridge!

We had an amazing time here. The service was excellent. Our table was near the order kiosk and it was perfect. Any time we had a question or we were debating on a choice, someone was there to offer assistance or break the tie. All of their recommendations for food and drinks were spot on. The food was fantastic. I would gladly eat here again and I plan to very soon.

Made a last minute reservation, and we were able to sit inside. Hadn’t been there for a couple years because of COVID, and because we didn’t like how close together the tables were. The tables are now spread out more than in the past, which is awesome. We never liked feeling like we were right on top of the people next to us, in the old days when they had many more tables crammed together inside. The specials were excellent, and the halibut was fantastic. Highly recommend Iron Bridge for a romantic dinner. A bit pricey, but worth it for a special occasion.

Fantastic Anniversary. Excellent staff. Great food. Try the seasonal Fried Green Tomatoes. Scallops were awesome as always.

One note to the chef. Please bring back the original brusselsprouts recipe. They were “the bomb”.

We really enjoyed our meal but I have to say, we were seated outside and at times felt like we were in a wind tunnel. I completely understand the need to keep air moving under the tent but I think you could get the same effect with fewer fans running on lower speeds. The staff was very accommodating in redirecting fans when we asked about it but it was still a bit much. In any case, we will be back and always enjoy our meals there.
