I've had quite a few things on their menu . . and they're all good. The cobb salad is a MUST! The molten lava cake is a must (plan 20 minutes though)!

Rare to have a "real" restaurant inside hotel! Open late (to 11/midnight) to accommodate travelers. Seafood (crab cakes, cioppino) was great.

If you are looking for one of the best, if not best pork chop, you have to try the Ironbound restaurant located in the Renaissance Newark hotel. The dish is served with house made mango-cilantro chipotle barbeque glaze, purple potatoes, and asparagus ($28). Absolutely fantastic. I will definitely have again next time I find myself in Newark.

Always get the Cobb salad here.....for some reason it is one of the best around. Beer selection is good and is within walking distance of the Hampton Inn next door which is great as I usually stay there. Nice menu selection. Not huge, but has good options.

Good choice of food on the menu and the quality was really good. The portions were generous and the service was very attentive with the waiting staff looking after us well. The restaurant is located in the Renaissance Newark Hotel and it would be very easy for them to let standards slide because there is no competition in the immediate... More

Excellent service (thank you, Rosemary) and food you want to come back for - filet mignon (done perfectly), grouper, and don't miss out on the deserts - Yum!

I had their signature burger: no complaints. Good stop whether you are at the Renaissance of next door.

Located inside the Renaissance Newark Airport hotel is Ironbound. The restaurant, partially attached to the hotel's bar, serves American fare, and very large portions. We ordered the Fettucini, which is made with pesto and served with grilled chicken, mozzarella and tomatoes. The dish was very delicate and light, a nice meal pre-flight. We also ordered the Roast Beef Melt, with... More

My 4 Sisters were staying at the near by Hampton Suites and Inns when we were going to BB Kings in NYC to see Eric Benet. We went to some of our favorite sites to find a great restaurant. Trip Advisor led us to the Ironbound Grill at the Renaissance Hotel by the Newark Airport. Loved the decor but was... More

I was in the hotel for a workshop and had no where else to go. Thank God! The food was truly excellent, the service was excellent and friendly - what more can I say. I had the chicken Cob salad which was very fresh and ample. I had the Ironbound Burger, which was cooked medium (pink) as I requested -... More
