We are in the middle of the Calgary summer Jazz festival with a number of events happening at the Ironwood. I'm reluctantly not going there because of our previous experience. We attended a CD release party here at the end of February, several years after our last visit for another Jazz music event. Each time, there were two crowds there.... More

Saturday afternoon walking around Inglewood brought us to the Ironwood for lunch. An amazing blues jam was on the go all afternoon; the place is a great live music venue. Food was great, though beer tap selection was a tad limited. This is not standard "pub grub"; bison burger, decent salads, wraps and such. Been back numerous times since first... More

I went here with a couple of friends to see Wil play. I love the neighbourhood of Inglewood, and there was plenty of parking nearby. The venue was intimate and cozy, but I thought that added to the atmosphere. The food wasn't anything special, but everyone was friendly. And of course, Wil was AMAZING!

Went on the weekend for a show. It was during the afternoon and I was able to take my kids. Wow, did they enjoy it. It's great to have a spot like this in town. As someone who is into live music I will say that professional production and sound makes a big difference. Ironwood sounds great and has really... More

The music selection has been great , but I still find the food under whelming as a foodie. But having said that the calamari has been a stand by for me. Still waiting after years for a surprise change in the food! Get there early for everything or there will be no where to sit......crazy busy when popular groups come.... More

This is such a wonderful place to watch live music, the atmosphere is great and very intimate. There really isn't a bad seat in the place. The service is excellent and the food is good too and not expensive. Don't miss the chance to see some great performers.

I have had the pleasure of performing in this venue more than a few times and have never seen an unhappy face. They lay out amazing cuisine, and some of the best musical acts touring in Canada. I always look forward in returning to the Ironwood Stage & Grill!

As always Pat, Amanda and the team at Ironwood deliver. Great atmosphere, exceptional food and friendly service are the norm. The venue is intimate, comfortable and unpretentious. Steve Fisher and the group are the perfect example of the incredible talent we have in Calgary. Thanks Pat for keeping live music front and center in Calgary.

We took my uncle for a birthday treat. It is dark and dingy however, perfect atmosphere for the type of music. The group were awesome. For me, the tables/seating could have been better however, we managed. The staff were ok and value for money was good.
