Visit for good entertainment NOT for good food and service. We waited a hour for our drinks - simple glasses of wine. When our food arrived one item had been forgotten. We complained and were told our food would arrive soon. When the food finally arrived it was genuinely mediocre. The good news was that the entertainment was enjoyable.

This is a great place to see a show. Any seat provides a close view of the entertainer(s). The server was helpful and friendly. Food was good, however very pricey! The beverages were also highly over priced. Ticket prices were acceptable and location in NOHO is great!

We always check out what's going on stage when we're in the area. Always great entertainment at great prices. The food was decent. So if you're going, go early and eat before the show. Just go to the bathroom before you head that way. The bathroom situation is abyssmal. Not quite sure why they don't do something about it, or... More

I cannot deny that I am biased. I have been going to The Iron Horse pretty much since Jordi opened this fabulous folk club (originally just a "coffeehouse" in the old Greenwich Village sense). The acts I have seen over the years define the lexicon of great artists: Tom Rush, Tom Paxton, Arlo Guthrie, the Indigo Girls, Dar Williams, Greg... More

I like venues that only seat a few hundred with decent acoustics. It fits that. The downside was the chair I was sitting in felt like it was going to break. The food was something I would expect from a hotdog stand and the building itself needed to be pressure washed and fumigated. I won't even talk about the bathroom.... More

We loved being so close to the stage. Food is served for some of the shows. The service is quick and the food is fine. Try to avoid sitting too close to the bar.

It's a great little place to hear the amazing musicians who come through this small town. Saw Anais Mitchell perform Hadestown a few years ago, and this time heard the beautiful songs of Over the Rhine. Good wine, too, at reasonable prices, to accompany the music.

I've been here three times over the past two years. If you looking for a great place to see a top rated band, come to the Iron Horse. Expect simple yet good food. Don't expect a "four star" restaurant experience. You have to ask yourself, if you're really coming here for the food?? No.. But the food isn't bad. The... More

You can go here for a concert or dancing--I'll tell you about both. The concerts here are fantastic. I have seen African bands where they clear a big space of the floor for dancing, intimate U.S. and Irish folk concerts, light rock concerts. Every seat has a great view and I cannot believe how close I am to the stage.... More

How does the Iron Horse stay in business? Oh, because there's really no competition. And if you want to see music, this is where it is. Plan to eat before you get there, as the food is terrible and overpriced and there are limited options. They haven't replaced the tables or chairs in decades. I went to a show the... More
