We enjoyed a pleasant lunch on the patio. Soft music and fountain for background of garden plants. Salad with salmon tastefully prepared. Chicken with greens and beans very tasty. New coconut cream cheese cake with pine apple mango salsa exceptional. Will return again soon. Brian our regular lunch waiter professional and attentive as always.

Ironwood is a lovely restaurant with superb food, nice wine list and very centrally located. I booked dinner here for our golf group and it was an excellent choice. The one drawback we experienced was that they were hosting a party on the outside patio and they wanted to keep their doors to the patio open which caused a cold... More

The Ironwood is a favorite with our entire family and everyone we know. From the outdoor heated and covered patio to the casual indoor area, all tables are well placed. The cuisine is American - farm-raised beef and many local providers, plus the owner prides himself on hand-cutting all the steaks. All dishes are expertly prepared and served, and in... More

Love, love, LOVE this place! It is our favorite place to have brunch with friends. The restaurant is beautiful with a choice of eating indoors or on the patio. I have always eaten indoors but the patio has a view of the garden. There is a "restaurant bird" that hangs out at the register or on the patio when the... More

Ironwood Cafe has never disappointed us. We have gone many times both with the kids and without and the meals are always fresh, delicious and classic. Service is very good.

Excellent menu with plenty of choices. Impeccable customer service. Chef personally delivered well prepared food to our table. We always feel welcomed and not hurried. Steak and winter stew were excellent.
