Good & Disappointing

My friends steak salad was very good. My French dip was a disaster. The fancy roll it was on disintegrated in the au jus leaving me with a handful of slop. Very poor ingredient selection. Even worse, the meat was skimpy and the au jus was watery; so, the while thing wasn't worth the bother.

We went to the black iron on our yearly family vacation looking for a good steak house, we didn't find it. It wasn't awful but it wasn't worthy of going back ever. My husband ordered the steak Neptune, it looked like canned tuna on his steak, in fact my cats canned food looks better than their crab meat. He said... More

Owner, Ken Lauzon, was unprofessional and unapologetic after our order was delayed. We were staying at the attached Days Inn and had a group of 10 with very young kids, so we decided to order take away which included some prime rib. The hostess first told us it would be 30 minutes and went to the kitchen to put our... More

Nice place located close to the arena. We made a reservation to start 2 hours before a concert. Our food took so long that we were late for the opening act. There should be more staff working on such a busy night. Food was good for the most part, although we were so hungry by the time we got it... More

Food was a little bit pricy but very good. The hour of operation were a little strange though, we wanted to eat there one night during the week and it was closed up.

The Black Iron Grill is one of our favorite places to dine in the South Okanagan. Take into account that you are eating the best steak in the Okanagan, paired with the best wines the Okanagan has to offer and the friendliest staff around! The prices are the same as dining in any local restaurant where you have this upper... More

A great steakhouse restaurant. Comfortable atmosphere, with good service and great food. I have not been disappointed no matter what I had ordered off the menu.

A good solid place to have a steak. Very friendly service and a good location. A little pricy for what you get but on the other hand, not a ton of steak houses in the area.
