About The Iron Room
The Iron Room is the restaurant at the Atlantic City Bottle Company & is a nod to the recently retired iron playing piece in the popular board game Monopoly. The Iron Room specializes in small plates & the cuisine is described as distinctly American. Chef Kevin Cronin says what makes it American is that the menu is a hodge-podge & mashing of cultures making the cuisine an interesting melting pot.
Local seafood, game meats, hand-made pastas & the “Flat Iron Burger” (the menu’s only permanent resident) are what guests can expect to see when visiting the restaurant. The Iron Room will also feature tasting menus & host special events dedicated to craft beverages & great food. We are as passionate about cheese as we our craft beverage. We have around 15-25 cheeses from all over the world on our list every day covering all the five catergories: fresh, bloomy, washed, pressed/cooked, and blue.

The Iron Room Ratings and Reviews

This review is just for brunch. We got the all-you-can-eat small plates for $22pp and went through the entirety of them. Standouts were the parsley waffle with whipped ricotta, disco fries (though it's hard to screw them up, the fries themselves were near perfect and they are not drenched in gravy), house-cured salmon, and the fried rice. If I had one critique on the food, some of it was overly salty (I'm looking at the chorizo, bacon, and poke specifically), though still delicious. Draft list was diverse, I had a Maine Lunch, which is one of the most balanced and technically perfect beers around, but the cocktail list appeared very innovative. Service by all of the staff was very friendly and unpretentious, attentive, and leisurely paced without being slow. Even though the place was fairly full, the noise level was fine and it didn't feel cramped or chaotic. Intelligent, interesting, and well executed brunch concept. Overall, I can't wait to return for dinner, I already have my wines picked out from the small but well curated shop in front.

Cool bar with great specialty cocktails and excellent bartenders who are very knowledgeable. I went with 4 people and we shared 'numerous' small plate selections including, fresh blackened octopus, incredible fried chicken, udon Mac n cheese, deviled eggs(should have ordered more), a cowboy steak that was pricey and small but delicious, along with and a few other selections. We totally enjoyed the experience and the staff was fantastic. This was our first time there and we will DEFINITELY be back. 👍🏻

My wife and I had heard good things about the Iron Room and decided to try it out for her birthday. We had a reservation but ended up talking to Jeff who was tending bar and decided to eat right there. We enjoyed his conversation and insight into some drinks as well as the menu.
We decided on several plates and ask of them were great. They have a good menu of well thought out dishes that seem the be executed beautifully. Male sure to ask about the bar menu!!
We look forward to going back again soon.

We had a wonderful meal at The Iron Room. We started with selections from the eclectic drink menu and then had a variety of tapas selections and the meat and cheese board and then some selections from the extensive wine list followed by more tapas. Great food and great service.

This was one lucky find. I originally booked because of the history of being an original speakeasy in atlantic city. I loved that they offer whiskey flights and thought it would be perfect for my whiskey lovin' husband. Husband had a whiskey flight pre dinner, and the waiter let me sample a wine before buying an entire bottle- which is always appreciated! Dinner was wonderful! They have small plates and both husband and I each ordered 2 plates and split a cheese plate to nibble on with our wine. We both got the gnocchi which were perfect little brown buttery pillows of sin. Could have eaten it for days- there were no leftovers! Scallops with pistachio puree and hanger steak were both cooked to perfection. We returned for after show drinks, since we ogled the whiskey all during dinner. Bartender gave a mini private whiskey lesson and needless to say, we made a few purchases in the adjacent store before returning home. We will be back. This spot is worthy of being the reason for going down to AC- not dinner and a show....this dinner is the show!

Very small plates. Not worth the expensive menu. Literally three bites of meat for 16 dollars is an absolute disgrace. Would have ordered the burger and grilled cheese had we known you were allowed to at the table. Left hungry four plates later and $100 dollars later .

This restaurant must have changed hands. Everything about it was unexceptable.
We were 10 people. Waited 1 hr for our first drinks,Waited another hr for our food.
All the food was over salted,missing an ingredient from the menu or out of( like chicken?).The manager even forgot to put in my husbands order for octopus after he told him how it was prepared and how fantastic it was.
The bill was discounted but it did not make up for all the things that went wrong.
It was also very hot in the roon we were in.
My husband and I have eaten here many times and really enjoyed it.
Don't know what happen to this restaurant.

We had an amazing meal at the Iron Room. We had 3 generations of our family at dinner and everyone was very impressed. They have a unique menu with flavors that you just don't usually see at a South Jersey, affordable restaurant. We loved the speak asy feel and the obviously family type culture you could feel from the staff. Service was excellent, the variety of food and beverage was unique along with a selection of the most expensive to the most affordable. Anyone can dine at the Iron room and get something they will be talking about for sometime.

This was our second time for brunch. The menu is creative and delicious. For $22 per person all you can eat, there is about 15 -20 options to choice from. The best description from the waiter was, it's a buffet, but he goes to the kitchen to get each plate. Highly recommend the mussels, tuna, salmon, potato pancake, just to name a few. They also make a killer bloody mary!

Another awesome experience at the Iron Room. Amazing value - everything was good, so much so that we ate ourselves into a food coma. Heartily recommend the all-you-can order brunch. Kitchen was a bit overwhelmed at times but whatever came out was good and worth trying.

We really enjoyed our dinner and service, very nice waiter. My only issue would be some of the choices were too salty for my taste. Please leave the extra salt up to the diner. Not everyone likes a lot is salt. Other than that we would definitely come again.

Creative, cutting edge cuisine in a speakeasy setting. Attached wine shop with reasonable corkage makes it a food and wine lovers dream spot. Plenty for the craft beer/whiskey and cocktail set as well as a great selection of artisanal cheeses. The chef here "gets it"

Delicious meal for our large group of 10! We tried almost everything, including a few bottles from their excellent wine list. Service was very friendly and thoughtful, including a complimentary dessert in honor of our special occasion. We would certainly return.

Second time and better than the first! Cheese plate was delicious, roasted roots and Mac and cheese unbelievable, and hanger steak and fried chicken capped off a perfect meal for our party of four. Our bartender Frankie was fun, knowledgeable, and the icing on the cake for a perfect evening.

Went for Sunday brunch and ordered from the all you could eat menu. It was the best brunch ever. The dishes are made to order, no buffet tables with food in warmers. You order it, they make it and bring it to you when it's ready. A variety of Bloody Mary's and a huge selection of beer on Tap a long with a full bar. The tables are set up for 2, so a larger group might have a harder time getting seated.

Love the extensive drinks list including craft beer and whiskey. Food was excellent. However, very small food menu with all small plates when sitting at a table. Was disappointed we did not know that there is a separate bar menu with tacos and sandwiches until we were finished dinning. Great experience overall, would love to go back to try the Bar Menu.

Let Kevin the chef just keep on send out food, some of our favorites were the octopus and the scallops. The cowboy steak was delicious as well as the soft shelledwe go back crabs. Service could not have been better and can't wait until.

We have been here before & love the fact that the food is always adventurous. The small plate is a plus so we are able to have more of a variety. The chef is always in the area checking if all is well. We will definitely be back again soon. It's only ten minutes from the AC boardwalk & an easy ride.

My family and I went for an early Father's Day dinner purely because they had an opening for a last-minute Saturday night reservation. We were seated in the tasting room which was loud since a group was finishing up a tasting, but we kind of enjoyed the energy. We also got to sit by all of the wine and beer at a sort of VIP type table which was cool. The tapas menu was amazing and our waiter was patient and super accommodating, explaining the entire menu and answering all of our questions. We ordered a ton of food and to make the eating experience the most enjoyable, our waiter told us when he would send items out so we were all eating together. I had the price fixe menu which was 4 courses for $39 and 100% worth it. All other dishes were incredibly fresh and perfectly seasoned. Favorites were the BBQ octopus, udon mac and cheese, and bread pudding. We also ordered a few drinks which were delicious and complex showing the amount of attention that is paid to every single detail of this amazing gem in AC.

We took a British relative here for a birthday treat since he loves whiskey and this place has 328 kinds to try. The food was excellent, as always. You have to ask for the burger if you are at a table rather than the bar, but they were very nice about providing them. The whiskey expert was knowledgeable and interested in what my guest wanted to try. We will be back soon with another whiskey lover.
