We go to the Iron Door for breakfast every Mother's Day for the last 17 years. And Nelson has been our server. He is a fun guy that quotes Shakespeare and dazzles the ladies with compliments. And the food is wonderful. German potato salad, crepes, sausage, it's all good! And their lunch sandwiches are excellent too!

Take the time to drive up Mt. Lemmon enjoying the awesome scenery and then arrive in time for lunch at the Iron Door. Be fascinated by the change in landscape from the bottom of the hill to the top and then take in the pictures of the skiers in the restaurant. Food was comforting with homey service.

SO glad we stopped here after a long day of exploring Mt. Lemmon! Chili and cornbread were delicious and my fiancé said his Frau Hunt brat with sauerkraut and a side of black bean bacon beer soup was great as well! Reasonable prizes. Great atmosphere and a nice fire!Fast and friendly service! Definitely stop and eat here before you head... More

We had originally came up the mountain (we live local) to get some pie in Summerhaven, but that place closed and the great pies we had heard of moved to the Iron Door Restaurant, which is just south of the parking lot. It's not that obvious, so if you cross over to the ski lift and shop (s) you could... More

Iron Door, more like Iron Curtain. Are they so secluded on the mountain that they can not get a delivery of fresh ingredients? They sure had their pantry stocked with "stuff in cans". Avoid the following: Jay's Overpriced Frozen chicken breast sandwich with fake grill marks. Famous chili was,well, infamous. Turkey ruben looked like someone made it, put it on... More

I read the TA reviews first. I briefly stopped at Summerhaven and it looked like a tourist trap. Besides that it was not near the highest point on mt Lemmon. I originally had not planned to eat lunch but before I could take the Ski Lift it started to rain. I decided to drop in to the Iron Door Restaurant.... More

Had lunch here today on the patio. We left Oro Valley where the temps were around 100 degrees and drove up the mountain. We got a little rain on us but only after we enjoyed lunch. The temps dropped down to 57 degrees. How wonderful and refreshing. The food and service here were great! We were entertained by a couple... More

The ever-changing scenery on the drive to the top of Mt Lemmon was amazing, and we were in a good mood upon arriving at Iron Door. We were seated quickly at our choice of tables by the back windows. Our server, Nelson, had a quick wit and silver tongue, adding even more charm to this restaurant that had a decor... More
