The Iron Room Ratings and Reviews
Truly wonderful place, especially for Atlantic City, which can be iffy for food. Their menu is tapas style, so you are encouraged to order several plates to share. Their booze selection is unquestionably diverse, and glasses of wine are half price on Wednesdays (which I was happy to take full advantage of). If you are vegetarian or vegan, you've got options, which is so rare in AC. The food itself was good, and I understand where they are going with it, but I can't say they really "stuck the dismount." For instance, I ordered tofu with a blueberry glaze and sesame seeds, which came with not enough glaze and far too many sesame seeds. The standout, for me, was the hoisin haricot vert, which included chilis, making the dish spicy, sweet, and addicting.
The atmosphere is cozy, a little bit badass, and unquestionably Jersey. It feels like a secret. And the service is phenomenal; the staff is full of personality and totally pro. I will certainly revisit and I encourage everyone to go because this is a spot that deserves longevity.
This small joint looks unassuming from the outside, but is quite a find. It has amazing cocktails and a huge whiskey selection. They serve small shareable plates, all of which we tried were amazing. The small restaurant and bar were packed on a Friday night, which made it loud, but as a few people left, it was better. The service was great, the food was excellent. Would definitely recommend!!
Best spot in the area for inventive food and superb wine/beer/spirits options. Great happy hour deals to sample some of the menu. Retail wine shop where you can browse for a wine to have with your meal or take home. Try the chef's board meats and cheeses to start out while browsing the menu and deciding on wines.
Great place to have a friendly get together, I would suggest a group of 4 plus, to take advantage of the tapas. Everything is good. This time we let the waitress pick our drinks and food, she was excellent, sorry I do not remember your name, but everything was perfect.
This is the 2nd time I have visited this unique restaurant. While the food was very good several items were cold, noodles and mushrooms, the wait was too long for the food. We spent 2 hours and most of the time was waiting and not eating and there were only 2 other people dining at the same time. With a party of 7 they should have been more prepared. We ordered the cheese board and they brought the special instead. For the price there was no value on this visit. A little embarrassed -I bragged about this place and brought my new boss.
What a cool place! Went here post-Atlantic City 70.3 Ironman to celebrate. Had some great specialty cocktails and enjoyed a fantastic tasting menu. Ambiance, service and food were all spectacular. Try this if you want something out of the ordinary and really special.
Their original dishes, served by such knowledgeable waiters, always impress us. Everything is very fresh, and customers' questions are appreciated. It's a wonderful bar, with exotic versions of your favorite dish and many kinds of beer, wine & spirits. For example, you won't find key-lime creme brûlée just anywhere. (Delicious!)
It's not inexpensive, but we always enjoy our dinners or "small plates" there.
I chose the Iron Room for the Sunday brunch. I arrived before my date and the bartender, although he didnt introduce himself was friendly enough. We were seated by the waitress and although I think she introduced herself it wasnt memorable. As a matter of fact, she took too long between stop-bys and when she did pass by she didnt do a visual check in. My date was disappointed that his egg option was limited and when he chose not to have the egg as prepared he was still charged full price. Overall, I would go again, the chef's choices were fresh, hot and visually pleasing...all of the brunch options I chose were delicious. Hats off the the culinary staff!
Found this restaurant on open table by chance and was surprised to hear it has been open for 4 years. Our regular Friday night group made reservations for 630pm. Dispite being fairly familiar with the area and gps on iPhone we had to drive around the block a number of times to get a visual of the building. "Where is this place ? " we said to each other. To our surprise it was right before our eyes just where it was suppose to be but how could it since it looked more like a liquor store from the street. " Can this be it ? ". Yes it is there's the sign. We debated briefly and decided since it has gotten a bunch of stars we would give it a try. As it turned out we had a fun time. The food, drink , service, and atmosphere was a surprise. If your looking for something different give this place a try !
Had an early dinner there. Everything from the service to the food was very good. Menu has a lot of small plates great for sharing. The mac and cheese was a must get. My son loved his fried chicken, and my daughter loved her fried tofu. I loved the steak tartare. So to sum up we loved it.
I would love to rate the Iron Room 5 stars for potential. The history of this restaurant being a speakeasy during Prohibition adds an air of intrigue to the place. The whiskey list is extensive and excellent. The liquor store attached to the restaurant is fantastic. The restaurant is loud, but it's a fun ambiance. Our server, Ashley, was knowledgeable about all the food items.
On the plus side: the udon noodle 3-cheese mac n cheese with toasted bread crumbs was amazing (Ashley's rec!). Bacon dish was excellent, but then again, how can ya screw up bacon?? Steak tartare was excellent- clean, fresh taste. Nicely done! Fried roots were tasty morsels. And the mushroom salad was sublimely delicious. Cheese plate was nicely balanced. Desserts were out of this world - walnut bread pudding with a bourbon caramel sauce was a home run, and the flourless chocolate tort had an incredible depth of flavor.
Here is my main issue with some of the dishes: Overseasoning. Ordered 2 steak dishes - a 20-oz. boneless ribeye and 10-oz. filet. The ribeye meat was excellent and was cooked perfectly, but it was completely overpowered by rosemary, to the point where the flavor of the meat could barely be realized. The filet was also excellent and cooked to perfection, but was waaaay over-salted. It didn't need that much salt, especially when it was topped with arugula and lemon, which would have provided a perfect counterpoint to the richness of the meat. The grilled octopus was very good, but was charred too much, to the point of being a bit burnt/overcooked. House-cured salmon was good, but nothing special. The fried chicken breast was good with the honey dip, but not great. Dark meat is the way to go with fried chicken, imho.
It's unfortunate that the 2 marquee items (steaks) were killed by their seasoning. If they let the natural flavor of the meats shine through more and the octopus is a bit less charred, I would go back there in a heartbeat. This place has the potential to be great!
I reserved this place because I had planned a "roaring 20's" bachelorette party. While the bar wasnt exactly a speak easy, we got a bottle of champagne for the table at a great price and we shared the tapas (which were delicious, especially the croquettes and truffle mac and cheese).
Our server Ashley was very nice/funny/accommodating. We were in a rush to make our next appointment and she made sure the kitchen knew to bring our food quickly.
Though not extremely budget friendly, I would visit again.
Very interesting food and beverage list. Chef greets tables to ask about your thoughts on food and he's happy to discuss it with patrons. Service slow to start but got better after expressing disappointment to waiter. I think they need more bar tenders and wait staff. Will definitely go back.
This spot was recommended by some friends as a local find. It is in an off the path location in AC and the restaurant is behind and attached to a liquor store with a bar. You walk in and hesitate, not sure what to expect, but that the only negative. Very creative kitchen, attentive staff, good drinks. You will be shocked at what they offer, the quality of the food, and the overall nice experience. We recently bought a shore home and will be coming here often to sample the menu which changes often.
Give it a try - different, creative, good selection of food and drink.
