My husband & I stayed for two nights after trying dinner here last summer. Amazing food, really good/creative drinks and the rooms are adorable. We can't say enough about this place. Definitely a hidden gem.

From the moment we walked in, the owner, Leslie, made us feel very welcomed. We sat at a table for two with a nice view of the fireplace and the bar area. There are so many nooks and crannies in this lovely Inn. The bar area is inviting, the lounge area behind the bar with sofas and chairs, the outside courtyard area, and of course the main dining room. We had checked out the menu online and there was a wide variety of menu items from burgers to fancy fare at reasonable prices. Nancy our server was patient with us while we worked our way through the extensive drink menu. We tasted some draft beers before making our final drink order. My husband chose the Lamb Sliders with fresh cut fries and coleslaw. I went with the catch of the day, Halibut prepared with a tarragon butter sauce topped with lobster knuckle meat and garlic mashed potatoes. We order the homemade chips & guacamole has a starter. The food was excellent. Every bite tasted delicious. The pace of the service was great, allowing us to enjoy our starter and warm breads served before our entrees. It was a Sunday night and there was a steady stream of folks coming in for dinner. We look forward to returning in the near future. Ironbound is a gem.

It's always a pleasure to eat here. The menu has a nice variety and the prices are reasonable. We enjoyed the addition of pork belly to the appetizers. My husband almost always has the Finnan Haddie, and I always have creme brûlée for dessert! We do miss the Mediterranean cheese dip though. The replacement is not the same.

Usually everything goes smoothly here, it depends on how busy it is. Last visit, we had 5 in our party, and service was slow. We had to wait 40 minutes to get our appetizers served and then waited awhile for our dinners to come out too. It is always worth it and we like this restaurant, but when they get "slammed" with diners, you are going to have to wait. I'd recommend studying the menu BEFORE you go there [online] and put your entire order in early for the best service.

It has been our experience that the food is always good and the people working there are very nice. Even the owner buses tables when they are busy. We will return as it is the best option for good food for miles around.

We did not stay at the Inn, we only used the restaurant.

The staff at Ironbound worked tirelessly. The owner Leslie must have a twin as she seems to be on top of every detail.

Our room was delightful. The bed was comfortable, the linens nice, the air conditioning unit quiet and effective.

The setting is lovely. We had a porch overlooking the park like setting in the rear.

Fresh fruit, bagels and coffee were available in the am.

The number of cars in the parking lot was a clear indication of how good the food was going to be!

Excellent service, friendly staff, and the food was impeccable. The prices are moderate, depending on what you get. We had both the seafood and the chicken specials. One appetizer and two desserts (no drinks or alcohol) and the bill was $86 plus tip.

The Halibut with lobster topping was to die for. The chicken topped with prosciutto and mozzarella was extremely good. Both came with mashed potatoes and a mix of small green beans, roasted beets and zucchini slices.

The appetizer list was intriguing as we landed on getting guacamole and chips. I can say that was the best guacamole I have ever had - heavy on cilantro just like I like it. The chips were hot and fresh.

The dessert portions were generous. All are made on the premises. We tried the creme brûlée (which had real vanilla bean) and the lemon curd. Both were beyond tasty.

Definitely worth going to this place and rest assured I will be going back.
