Really like this restaurant. It is our go-to when we are in Southern Pines on business. Our guests enjoyed the sea bass and Scottish Salmon. As a vegetarian, I loved the tofu curry. Delicious! They have their own garden located next door to the restaurant, which is an added bonus. Wait staff is great. Big shout out to our server,... More

My wife's favorite in PInehurst, our special occasion place for a great dinner. Staff is very good, and service is the best. Some really great selections on menus,our favorite is the soft shell crabs when in season. Some excellent salad meals. Outdoors is top notch ambiance.

Always a very pleasant experience here at Ironwood. The service is top notch and the food is excellent and...you won't get a better "pour," whether wine or cocktails, anywhere else. I like to eat in the bar where everyone is friendly and the bartenders are the best. Love this place...my fave in the Pinehurst area.

This restaurant consistently serves up good food and is right at the top in the area. Personal favorite is the Chilean Seabass but other dishes are fine too. If temperatures are suitable outside seating is available.

Every time I visit Southern Pines, we end up at Ironwood! We have sat outdoors (in the summer) and inside (in December). Would love to try out the bar. The menu is fun, fresh and interesting. Always great food and drinks. And, I love that they have their own garden.

I frequently go solo to the bar for dinner. Always a cordial crowd and very good bar tending as well. Meals are off the restaurant menu or early bird menu of you happen to order before 6:00. Service is always excellent as is the food. Should a problem arise with your meal it is taken care of quickly. Favorites are... More

We stopped here for a nice lunch on our way to thanksgiving with family in Chapel Hill. The restaurant is decorated nicely and is nestled in a quiet location. We ate inside. They had a great wine selection and I ordered the chicken pot pie. I have to say, I wasn't sure about ordering it but I was curious. I... More
