“Fireworks for the senses!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

The modern day neighborhood bar; akin to that of ‘Cheers’ where everyone knows your name. Scratch that. Let’s get down to the nitty gritty. Jerry, one of the bright entrepreneurs’ of Iron Press, will delight your palate with several mouthwatering, delectable comfort food offerings as well as wet your thirst with one of several California micro-brews. From the chicken and waffle to the garlic Parmesan tots with the dragon lips sauce, your senses will be stimulated! Ask about the circle of life and the whole barn! Fun and inviting, this is THE place to be!

“No Bread...It's Waffles!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Oh My Goodness, ridiculous (in a good way) number of beers on tap. They also serve a cider beer that doesn't taste like beer, and it is delicious. They have "daus boot" that your beer can be served in. My husband enjoyed that a lot. The atmosphere is casual. Expect a wait if you go there right at lunch or dinner time. They don't have too many tables, their seating is mostly at a very, very long bar.

Good food and a great beer selection

“What Are You Waiting For?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

Beer...beer battered waffle sandwiches...garlic Parmesan tater tots...need I go in? This place is great! There is such a variety of beer on tap that you can come in just for a beer or 3 or pair it with a fantastic waffle sandwich! I crave the veggie (tempora) sandwich with smoked Gouda! Everyone that works there is very pleasant and extremely knowledgable about the beer and food. Definitely recommended!

“If you have never been - rectify that ASAP!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

Amazing food. The concept is fresh and delicious. Your sandwhich is served on a savory waffle. The flavor is wonderful. Lots of delicious craft beer on tap. I had a stout chocolatey treat of a beer, as well as a beer flight. I explained to Leonard, the owner what I liked, and trusted him to select 5 of the many brews on tap. PERFECTION! I will become a regular in no time at all. Friendly staff, food and beer that all worked together to make my tastebuds sing. The salsa is superb. If you haven't been here yet, RUSH to rectify that.
