Quaint country atmosphere. Classic country tunes playing. Rustic Route 66-type decor. Fabulous ribs, pulled prime rib, diet Dew, raspberry iced tea, and sweet cornbread muffins.

What an adorable and delicious restaurant! I loved everything about this meal: drinking from mason jars, incredible mac and cheese, cute atmosphere, and nice staff!

This is our second trip to the area... First time we tried the Springfield Grille, and were impressed with the food and service. This go-round, we tried the Iron Bridge. Decor: well, to us Canadians, this is a true piece of Americana. Great dark-stained wood throughout; clever little dining nooks defined by huge wood beams; kitschy memorabilia scattered around. It...

The food was good, but not awesome (especially for the price), the service was good but not awesome, the decor was nice, but not awesome. I think the biggest disappointment was outside of the restaurant. The old iron bridge that was 100ft away from the restaurant that give it it's name has been replaced with a generic concrete crap bridge... More

My wife and I have frequently eaten at the Iron Bridge, and we always enjoy it, the food and service are excellent, and the price is reasonable. Many items to choose from, including complete meals, snacks, and sandwiches. Great selection of beer, wine, and liquor. The decor is soothing and the music fits the mood.

The Iron Bridge Inn menu has changed over the years, but the food remains consistently great. My wife’s pulled prime rib was simply outstanding. My Chicken Wellington stuffed with broccoli and cauliflower in a pastry was surprisingly light and good. The meals, including a salad and a side, were less than $40 plus drinks. The decor is casual, clean and... More

On a recent Sunday afternoon when neither of us felt like cooking, we decided to go to our favorite local restaurant. As is usual, the service was quick and friendly, and the food was delicious. Interesting seafood medley on the Daily Specials this time. When the bill came, three of us barely used half a Ben. (I was the only... More

Strongly recommended for any sort of occasion. It's a fully decorated Inn, with old prints, vintage posters, old west written boards and animals trophies on each wall. Food is superb -BBQ is the core of the specials. I had a smoked rib eye. Spectacular. Kind service. Unforgettable. Low price too. An American Icon.

While everything on the menu is great - I highly recommend the Filet - either size at the Bridge. Great food - great staff.

Finally got a chance to visit this restaurant. All 5 of us chose different meals and raved about each one. My aunt was still talking about her burger 2 days later. Started the meal with a bbq pulled pork nacho appetizer. Out of this world. My steak was done to perfection. Two people in our party ordered sweet potatoes as... More
