A friend from the area recommended Ironwood Cafe for dinner when business took me to Southern Pines. I will probably gush too much about this restaurant! We were early for dinner before our meeting so took advantage of the "Early Bird Menu" and everyone was thrilled with their selections. Surf and Turf with beautiful french green beans/whipped potatoes, beef tenderloin... More

My wife and I were driving through the area and decided we were hungry when we saw this place. We had actually arrived between the lunch and the dinner times. The staff could well have told us to come back later, or that they just weren't serving at that time... but they didn't. We were invited in and asked if... More

We originally had reservations at Rhett's in Southern Pines. Upon our arrival we were led to an outdoor seating area which was acceptable as it was a pleasant evening. I don't know what flawed thinking process convinced the hostess we wanted to sit at a high top table obviously meant solely for drinks. I guess she also thought we wouldn't... More

Recently ate at the bar. The pork Osso Bucco was delicious. The staff was professional and courteous. The outdoor area looked friendly and inviting. Would definitely eat there again.

Allow me to first explain my title...I was immediately struck by this restaurant's use of words and/or items that were kind of opposites, such as: iron/wood in their name and their display of fire and water in their fountain on the outside patio. This restaurant is set right in the middle of "golf country" and attracts many a golfer. We... More

Ho-hum, just another great meal at Ironwood. Went there again last week with our daughter and her fiance (from NYC) and all of us were very pleased with the food, service, and entire experience. Can't say enough good about the place.

The food was great. We sat outside, despite the heat we had a good time. Pointer- mist fans are needed outside during the summer time.
