We dined inside. The atmosphere was lousy. Food was very average. Service was adequate. Will not go back.

We were looking for a nice dinner out for date night and decided to try The Black Iron Grill. It was a great choice! The food was excellent and the servers were very attentive. We plan to go again.

Tried this restaurant for the first time. I hand the 10 oz. NY strip and my spouse had the salmon with bourbon glaze. The food was prepared quickly and our waiter was attentive. We both chose the salad with white French dressing. The salads were...More
