The restaurant is located atop the Catalina Mountains and gives a warm home style feeling. With the fireplace crackling in the back round one might think they were in a lodge in a major skiing area. Casual dining, family friendly..

If you arrive at the Ski Lodge near the summit around meal time, the Iron Door is the place to go, not that there is much competition. Actually the lunch is pretty good. In fact the chili with cornbread is outstanding (just right spicy). We...More
We enjoyed a nice lunch on the deck after skiing for a few hours. Okay menu and found options we liked.....although would have liked the Reuben to be offered with pastrami rather than turkey. German potato salad a nice treat. Service was a little slow...More
It was difficult but fun to choose a lunch selection from the Iron Door's vast menu! I enjoyed Walter's Chicken Salad Sandwich which was served on raisin bread; delish! The rest of our party shared the pulled pork sandwich with German potato salad, which was...More

Excellent home made soups and chili as well as a good number of sandwich and entree options. Save room for home made mini pies ( think pot pie for 1 size) in yummy fruit flavors with either crust or crumb toppings. Served with ice cream....More
We visited as a family in mid November so the first sprinkle of snow on the ground. Stopped for food and the children’s meal was big enough for an adult. Cornbread was excellent, good hot chocolate and a roaring open fire. Good service and not...More
