Description: The art of cooking with wood enhances the Ironwood Tavern"s experience with bold flavors simply not found with alternative cooking methods. Executive Chef Luis incorporates the seasonal offerings such as beef, pork, poultry, seafood and fresh produce from small local farms and purveyors for our cuisine. Craft beer is our focus and our passion. All of our 24 craft beers on draft reflect a personal vision. Our craft beer list is different, intriguing, and constantly evolving, like the world of craft beer itself. A menu that features styles from all over the world, but is predominantly American and local in focus. Our craft beer experts works with chef Luis to develop the menus, and that the pair sometimes start with the beer and work backwards to the food from there.

Well they did a great job transforming the atmosphere from the previous identities. Menu had a great selection, but def an emphasis on beef. Even though, i still had plenty of options as a vegetarian. The service was outstanding. I had half a meal to take home for tomorrow's lunch. We will be back. As locals, we always welcome something... More

Stopped in after doing some shopping in the area. I chose this place because I was craving a good burger. I got that and more. The soup of the day was a smooth and delicious red pepper crab soup with a few big pieces of crab. I got the BBQ burger with a spicy mayo and BBQ sauce and fried... More

My husband and I have been to Ironwood twice for lunch, and I'm sure a third time for dinner will be very soon. The wings with their "volcano" hot sauce are fantastic - not soggy with too much sauce. I mentioned to our waiter that I really like hot wings but the "mahagony" sauce sounded good too, and he said... More

Went to Ironwood Tavern a few days ago. Nice interior, with booths on the outside, and a bar and bar tables on the inside. There are large TV screens over the bar area, but no sound, which made the restaurant audio level reasonable and could have a decent conversation. My brother and sister-in-law ordered burgers which they thoroughly enjoyed. I... More

Excellent specialty beer selection paired with great food. I was fully prepared for the average pub menu & quality, Ironwood exceeded my expectations in food & beverage. Location a bit odd but worth the trip!

Ironwood is new to Leesburg, so we had to check it out. When we first moved here, that spot was a Ponderosa, then a Red Apple Buffet, then Buffalo Wings & Beer. Not sure if it's the location (pre-conceived notions about being in a Walmart shopping center?) or what, but something turns people away. Interior is still much the same... More

My first visit to Ironwood was with my son, several weeks ago, just after they opened. The staff was very friendly, and welcoming. The menu has a good variety, but not so much that it's overwhelming. All of our food was delicious, and cooked exactly as ordered. So this time, we went back, with more family members. The food was... More
