We had a wonderful evening at this restaurant. Fish and chicken were both excellent. Good service and wonderful atmosphere. We went on date night, but a family was celebrating a multi- generation birthday next to us. They were as pleased as we were.

We so much enjoy the iron gate. It is a restaurant you don't see much in this day and age. Delicious meal and fantastic service. Even the separate bar is a fun place with live music. We will continue to to have dinner there.
