Driving by this restaurant you might think that you don't want to stop it, but wait! This place was home of a railroad station for many years and when you get inside, you will be surprised with the eclectic collection of memorabilia from years past. Then, take a look at the menu and also be asked for the specials. I... More

Don't let the peeling paint and the rotting wooden fence fool you. The proprietor here is serious about good food and service. My wife and I visited on a Friday evening in early March, just before the rush. Because they were booked solid, we ate on the patio. Except for our unpleasantly close proximity to the grease trap, this was... More

Been here a bunch of times and it has been great for dinner, lunch, and brunch. Wonderful food and service. The ambience belies its excellent food and service though I like its old train station appeal.

excellent southwest food, cajun, etc. I had a special lamb dish. Terrific. Not an elegant place, but this is Prescott. I really liked it.

Six of us had dinner here (to celebrate a birthday) and everything was very good. We ordered steaks, the special with steak and crab cakes, pork chili and chicken & potato enchilada. Everything was cooked as ordered and very tasty! We had the calamari for an appetizer and it was excellent as well. Don't miss dessert! The chocolate tart was... More

I have previously given this restaurant a top rating. However, I had dinner there tonight and something has changed. Both me and my wife had the Gumbo and it was way-way over spiced. So hot it was hard to eat. I then had the Baja Fish Tacos -- they were also way over spiced, very hot and hard to eat.... More

My realtor recommended this restaurant to me when I moved here. It is my favorite kind of restaurant-local flavor, smallish, and unusual food. I had the fish tacos for lunch and enjoyed every bite. There were lots of unusual condiments and hot sauces available. This addition really enhances my eating experience. It is always crowded because everything is good.

When you drive up, you will hesitate to enter. Don’t. The building is not exactly the jewel of Prescott. Apparently it’s an old train station, a long way from any tracks, as it was moved here some time ago. The restaurant is wonderful with great menu and many specials. Inside is charming, clean and with great service. We had a... More

Lunch at the Iron Springs Café was excellent. Food and service were great. The fish and chips special was perfect. The batter was very light and crispy--just the way I like it.

We love the Iron Springs Cafe during summer. Being able to sit outside and enjoy a solid meal of great food is preferable to indoor dining anytime. Prices are a bit steep, but it doesn't seem to hurt their business, which means the food is good. We live so close we can walk, and we do. If you've never had... More
