The early bird menu has better prices and free salad or soup. The food is great, servicer attentive. The restaurant is not crowded early, so that helps. The wine prices are above average, running at 9 to 11 / glass. A nice place for special occasions or casual dining.

Pleasant Monday lunch. Pea soup and Cuban sandwich was tasty and well prepared. Fried chicken thighs and collards, nicely seasoned and hand breaded.

We've eaten there four times, and all four resulted in great service and good food. We always choose the early bird, because the price is good, and service is quick earlier. They have a wide variety on the menu for every taste, which is great for me, since I'm gluten free, and have no trouble finding something besides salad and... More

Enjoyed an excellent dining experience for my mom's birthday. Plenty of variety from their seasonal menu. It made for tough choices. Filet Kabobs, Lasagna and Roasted Chicken dishes were beautifully prepared and delicious. Service was pleasant and professional by Jesse. My favorite in Southern Pines/Pinehurst area! If I remember what we had from two months ago...rest assured. Go Ironwood!

Ironwood is a favorite, always a good meal. The staff is always super friendly. If I had one complaint its the lack of draft beer.

Five of us went, ages 15 to 76, and all of us were pleased with dinner. Inside and outside dining. The food and the service were excellent!

Great ambience! Good steaks and steak salads. We like to meet friends here on a Friday night and sit outdoors, especially when the weather is mild.

Having recently moved full time to Southern Pines, N.C. in June of this year, this has become our "go to" restaurant for quiet dinners and special occasions. I can safely say this is one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten at...and it is just around the corner from our house! After 35 years in the pharmaceutical business (2... More

Went with a golf trip group of 10 people. The service was very attentive and didn't disappoint. Very high end dining was a nice surprise. Lots on the menu and wine list. My one complaint would be with the wine list - no vintages listed. I would have picked out 2010 Napa cabs rather than the 2011's if there were... More
