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

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.
"Iron Room" a great hidden Gem of a Resturant
We went there over the Memorial Day Weekend at the suggestion of a friend. The food was really quite good, the Bourbon and bar selection was outstanding as was the wine available. Great place very enjoyable and the staff was very prompt and friendly.
NOT UP TO EXPECTATIONS
Have read some good reviews and see this as 4+ star restaurant, so decided to give it a try. This is a very small space....cramped with tables pretty much next to each other, except for the 1 table we got which we were happy about. But we were right on top of the door, so a constant brushing by of people and servers. It's more of a bar atmosphere where they serve food. I think the bar sat as many people as the small room did. So be in a party mood, go with a group of friends, not recommended for party of 2. Whiskey flights and lots of beer - so this is a place to go drinking and have some small plates. Not somewhere to go for the food Service was spotty. I probably shouldn't expect great service in a bar/restaurant so maybe my expectations were too high. The place was really busy and the servers were stretched pretty thin so we didn't see ours a lot, which is why when our paired tasting menu course was served without wine, no one noticed. After eating the course and still no wine, had to call someone over because we never saw our server. They had no clue about the wine pairings and actually told us that the manager "pushes" the wine pairings but very few people ever order it. Our water glasses were constantly empty even though bus persons were whizzing by with water pitchers. No one bothered to look. Timed it at over 10 minutes when we finally broke down and grabbed someone to ask if we could Please get some water! Got the wine situation worked out - gave us a double portion with the next course and a dessert wine comp. However, our server never checked on us. We had to stop and try to find him. Well, once the mood was soured, we were pretty much over it and just wanted to go. As for the food - it was good. Not anything outstanding or "wow"...wasn't awful either. Overall not impressive enough to want to go back...too many really good restaurants here to settle for mediocre. Price was very fair - $59 for chef's tasting menu including wine.
The Iron Room is a real hidden gem. We found it thru a review in a magazine. I am glad we did. A very small local place with lot's of character, ambiance and great food. Our server Brian was wonderful and was very helpful explaining all the dishes. We will definitely be back.

Their website posts menu and a separate bar menu but doesn't advise that the bar menu is only available at the bar and presumably the regular menu is not available at the bar. Drinks were excellent and food was good. Especially enjoyed the octopus. Done differently than the usual.

Excellent experience, top notch. Delicious menu and by far the best scotch selection around, hands down. And having someone as knowledgable as Lenny there to guide you along on your scotch and bourbon journey is invaluable.
For food, had the chef's board and octopus to start. Octopus was perfect and the chef's board had an excellent selection of meats, cheeses, and other items that went perfectly together. As for the meal, ask for the Ron Swanson. Nothing short of perfection. Excellent evening and I will be going back soon!

Best Mac and Cheese we'd ever had! Overall fantastic meal and great atmosphere. Great whiskey selection. However, they can't hear the phone so don't try calling and good luck changing a reservation unless you're already at the restaurant. Besides that, highly recommend!

loved the grilled octopus, scallops, mac n cheese, and green and white salad. nice wine list and an amazing list of craft beers and whiskey. it was our first time there and we were not happy with our table as it was right by entry door. will definitely go back but request a different table when we make our reservation.
Great food and fantastic wine
The Iron Room is our favorite place down the shore. The food is fantastic and inventive, and the wine list is terrific. The staff is so friendly and welcoming. It's a comfortable room, with no pretense and no nonsense. Exactly what a restaurant should be.

I was excited to try The Iron Room this past weekend for my mothers birthday. Overall, it was a good experience but I don't think I will be going back anytime soon. I know to expect inflated prices in Atlantic City but this restaurant is nowhere near the downtown area. I feel like they would benefit from slightly lowered prices. If there is no kind of special going on their cocktails are all $14 and beers start at $9. Thats outrageous. I started with a cocktail that had tequila and ginger beer but it really just tasted like a plain margarita. The food is decent but wasn't as good as I was expecting. We ordered the Fried Roots (these were really good) croquettes (decent) octopus(slightly burnt) and seasonal pasta (honestly this tasted like heated up day old pasta I make at home) That food and 3 drinks came to $100. Again, I knew going in about the prices going in but I just left feeling unsatisfied and like I wasted a bunch of money.

Tapas at the shore. Incredibly stocked bar, lots of variations of the norms, i.e. scotch, bourbon, whiskey tequila, great craft beers. Tapas were original and very well prepared. Only problem - parking must me h*** during "the season" as lot holds only 2 cars and it's just off the AC Expressway, so parking is tough.
Our group of four thoroughly enjoyed the price-fixed menu selections we made with the wonderful help from our server, Ashley, who also expertly advised us with wine flights based on our personal tastes. The food was fantastic, as was the wine, in this cozy, back-room dining room, where reservations are recommended. We will be back!
Best Brunch Around
Went for the small plates brunch - great concept and you will want to take advantage of the all you can eat plates for $22 - a bargain. And each one is done with a nice twist - the french toast, the poached egg, the tuna tartar... a nice mix for whether you are a savory or a sweet bruncher. The Bloody Mary was a little overpriced for what you get but otherwise I can't find fault here and will be back.

My children purchased a gift certificate for The iron Riom for my husband and I for Chrisrmas. We finally got around to going on our anniversary in Aprik. It was our first time dining there and it will not be our last! The staff is awesome, the food was great, and the wine selection was fantastic! I can not wait to go back!

A real hidden gem. A great "speakeasy" feel with wonderfully inventive cocktails, well thought out wine/beer list and interesting delicious food. Just what AC needs can't wait to go back.
