If you like local then this is the place to go, they put a whole lot of love in their meals that they serve. Wait staff is friendly along with their customers who are always open to conversation. Great place to go.

Have gone to Iron Kettle for years. Recent price hikes due to cost of food I guess. Some foods just seem to have cheaper ingredients , have to keep making a profit. Still, a good place to go, its very popular
