Restaurant IRON Ratings and Reviews
Enjoyed our evening very much at Iron for our anniversary. We requested to sit at the counter when I made the reservation and they did not accommodate the request. However, when we arrived we were greeted with a wonderful Happy Anniversary note on the menus, and finished dinner with the Nutella Pie (AMAZING). The Sea Bass was phenomenal and the Marcus Caeser is a favorite salad of mine.
Took my wife for her birthday. We made reservations ahead, and they had the menu personalized wishing her a happy birthday! They also made her a special desert. My wife had the sea scallops on squid ink pasta, and it was wonderful! I wanted to order for myself, but we try never to order same thing when we go out so we can share and in case one person doesn't like theirs but the other does. I had the lamb shank on risotto. It was also very good but rather heavy after an appetizer we shared of fried oysters and grouper cheats. Appetizer was a little salty but very good otherwise! Iron never disappoints on drink mixology. My wife loves the bacon bourbon tumbler. We would definitely recommend this as a go to mainstay.
My wife and I came for dinner to celebrate our 10th anniversary the other night. Restaurant Iron was an amazing experience. The food was the best we have ever had - absolutely delicious. All of the staff were friendly and just added to the amazing experience. We are so glad that we have such an excellent restaurant in Pensacola.
When I filled out the reservation form at open table, I mentioned that it was our anniversary, but no one at the restaurant made any mention of our anniversary. My husband also ordered the $45 steak and it was significantly under cooked. When you pay that much and wait a while for a steak, you expect it to be perfect. We had a fabulous waitress though.
We went for my birthday. We were greeted at the front door with Happy Birthday and a smile. Our waitress was attentive and knowledgeable . We started with crispy fried oysters and snapper throats . Delicious and loved the cocktail sauce with a twist. Our entree was sea bass. Beautifully plated and cooked to perfection . We finished with Nutella pie . Amazing . The menu had my name and Happy Birthday at the top. This is our second time at this restaurant and we will definitely be back . BYW we drive an hour to this restaurant.
Restaurant IRON is a reflection of the quality of both the staff and patrons...A combination of
big city modern and smaller city personal friendliness. Wonderful menu...complimented by
very, very experienced wait staff, bar staff, cooks and chef. Everything is so satisfying to the soul. We try to get there on a weekly basis.

This place was amazing. Me and my girlfriend enjoyed all of the food and the service. Even the drinks were far better than expected. Our waiter Matt provided us with an amazing knowledge of the menu and fast, quality service. Eat outside of your comfort zone and you won't regret it.
The food is delicious, and beautifully and creatively presented. All four of us enjoyed our meals. The restaurant is not large, but very modern and well appointed. Reservations are usually needed at popular times from my experience. Overall a very enjoyable experience.
