We came on a Sunday Evening but did not know about the buffet - There was a long wait so if you're planning on going I'd highly recommend making a reservation! We were told it would be about 45 minutes before we could get a table but it did not end up taking that long which was great! Two of... More

Sunday evenings the Black Iron Grill has an incredible Prime Rib Buffet. Many items to choose from and reasonably price. Service is great, but make a reservation so you aren't disappointed.

This place attached to the Days Inn makes you feel relaxed. We sat outside, it was warm, but not bad. The food is a variety, Lamb burger with Feta cheese was my choice, really good. Great wine list too. Service was top notch.

Wife and I went for appetizers, just to try a selection of the different things on the menu First off we had the crab cakes and with out a doubt they were the worst we have ever tasted. They were fishy tasting and had mostly filler and no visible crab.The shrimp cocktail was very good as was the baked Brie.The... More

The all you can eat Sunday evening buffet at $25 is good value. There is always roast beef, as well as other meat selection, plenty of salad veggies, and desert treats. The outdoor seating is great in the summer. I've been there quite a few times. My only complaint might be that the last time we went the roast beef... More

We finally tried the prime rib buffet at BIG - terrible, tough beef - very sparse buffet. Shared stuffed yorkshire which was inedible - our waitress discounted the yorkshire 15% (big whoop). Will not return and have told many people not to bother trying either.

We heard good things about this restaurant but we're disappointed from the start. The hostess seemed pre occupied and was on the very edge of being rude which was our first sign of an unfriendly evening. The food was acceptable but I think overrated by the reviews. If your seeking an average place to eat this would be an ok... More

Had 6 friends from out of town, one couple staying in the Park Royal RV site which is right beside the Black Iron Grill. We decided to walk over and try the Black Iron and we all really enjoyed it. Three of us ordered steaks, one had fish, one had clams and mussels and one person ordered a vegetarian plate... More
