Had not been in this building since it was a local fine art and crafts store.....What a remake! We were celebrating my father-in-law's 90th birthday. The staff was extremely friendly, the menu was diverse and eclectic, presentation was excellent and the food absolutely delicious all the way around! They even brought a surprise birthday dessert! Will definitely return!

Have to give this a fair rating just because of our experience. Nice decor, starting with the front bar, to the dining area, and a nice outdoor dining area, which we would have used if it wasn't 96 outside. Once crowded inside the ding area got quite warm. Server was stretched a little thin and barely got water refills. Food... More

Since we live in Pinehurst, my companion and I have frequented Ironwood Cafe numerous times. We take advantage of "early bird" dining for several reasons. The menu is so varied and the prices are great. Last night I noticed the dining patrons. A real mixture of young and older. Families,which included children and grandparents, tables of 6-10 celebrating happy occasions... More

I cannot believe these reviews. This place may be beautiful when you drive up. But be aware!!!! The happy hour prices are only if you order a soup or salad and don't order the bowl because it has to be a cup???? Complete false and misleading promotion! The bread was burnt, the soup was cold, the seabass was burnt. And... More

Lovely restaurant with a varied menu of dishes. Never a problem to find something you'd like, hard to make a choice.chef Nathan does an excellent job in keeping the specials varied and the menu changes often enough to keep it interesting. I love to sit in the bar which is a busy local watering hole.Beautiful bartenders Val and Jackie always... More

We loved the Ironwood Cafe. Our table of 6 was located out doors under a tent on the patio. The service was great and each one of us throughly enjoyed our dinner.

First time in the Pinehurst area. Several locals recommended this restaurant and how correct they were!!!! Great service along with great food. There is a young man working at the restaurant named Cruise that has a great personality and is a huge plus for the restaurant. We will dine there again when we return to this beautiful area.

This is great restaurant in the Pinehurst area. We had Seabass and enjoyed it along with the mashed potatoes and finished the meal off with crème brûlée and coffee. Interestingly enough, there is a garden outback but it appears there's no one who knows how to attend it properly. The basil needs fertilizer and the garden looks like it needs... More

Came by with the family for an early dinner and was surprised by the great prices and food available for the early bird. Really looking forward to returning.

Have eaten dinner here before and always loved the food. We had a large group, about 10 couples and the service was very good. I had the tuna tartare with avocado which was delicious. Then I had flounder stuffed with crabmeat and wrapped in bacon with a nice sauce. It was tasty but I found the fish to be a... More
