“Very accommodating!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

We got here after all the other restaurants in the area had turned us away at 5 past 9 having closed at 9. The woman in here was very friendly and was willing to stay open late even though there was only a few other people drinking in there. The food was great some really well cooked fresh steaks and lovely salads . The service was fantastic really attentive, friendly and the food was reasonably good value for money

“Great food - average service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

The food is good and the décor keeps you busy just trying to take it all in. The service is a bit slow and unenthusiastic.

“Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

If you're in the market for good food in the sun, head out to the Running Iron. It's always a great place to sit and have a beer with friends out of the fog.

“When you are really hungry ....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

A Carmel Valley institution!

Food is good, not great, and plentiful especially the weekend breakfasts. The bar is a great place to grab a cold one but can get a little rough on weekend nights especially if the 49ers loose. One owner works the front of the house, the other in the office. Their daughter is behind the bar.

Fun place.
