This is the one place I'd choose over any other. Whether going to dinner with my husband or lunch with my girlfriends...this is the place I choose.

My husband and I moved to the area about ten months ago, and Ironwood Cafe has been on our list of "places to try." Well, we went at the last minute last night. We got there about 8pm (Friday evening), without a reservation, and were immediately seated in the area of our choosing (outside vs inside). I chose outside, and... More

We do a golf trip every year and make this our big night out for us 8 guys. Mostly our crew will order filet. Everyone is always pleased. I tried the swordfish special as did another and we were both happy. One other got the pork and he said excellent! Good wine list and drinks . Service always wonderful.

The food is very good but the room is noisy. In the spring & summer seating on the patio is wonderful. Beautiful setting. Early Bird is a good value!

For staff, location, appearance and atmosphere this place gets 5 out of 5 but in all honesty the food lets it down. Wonderful, artistic, presentation but let down by flavor. We have a party of 16 attending and, whilst the drinks did take a fairly long time to get to the table, the two servers were both wonderful. I had... More
