“Historic firehouse”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

I really like the menu at this place- it is a fun and lively but load new place- most of the time the food is very good- their reuben sandwich is the best I have ever had- be hungry because it is huge. Great bacon popcorn, fish tacoes,and innovative fresh salads with fun combinations. They could do better in the service area of this new place- they also need to address the noise level- forgot talking to even the person sitting next to you if there is a band playing but that's usually very late on a weekend night. The place has a fun vibe and it is a great rehab job on the old fire station.

“Great atmosphere!”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

The Iron Spike is new and has really taken off in Galesburg. This is a brewer with some local beers and good food. Our class reunion was held in the upstairs portion and it was perfect for our class of 60. The food was very good and we enjoyed having our own personal bar and seating area.

“Good place for dinner”
Reviewed August 7, 2014 via mobile

Came to Galesburg for class reunion and tried this place. I remember the firetrucks roaring out in years past. The beer was good, food good and service was good until we tried to pay and our waitress disappeared. I think she got interested in her cell phone. This place would be a good addition to any downtown.

“Great microbrewery - bad service”
Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

Ambiance is fantastic! Converted, old firehouse. Great beer selection. Unfortunately, our bartender was more interested in chatting with coworkers than seeing if we needed another drink. Service kept this from a 5.

“Fresh craft beer, good food, personable staff”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

I had dinner at the Iron Spike Brewing Company this evening. On tap were 5 or 6 craft beers, mostly ones brewed on site. The Anti-Hero IPA was crisp, flavorful and not too bitter. I had a portobello burger with the house fries and a blueberry cobbler for dessert. The burger was very good and the fries were freshly made. The cobbler was delicious but a bit on the sweet side for my taste.

The staff was pleasant and personable and not overbearing. The place was not crowded. I had dinner at about 7 pm local time on a weeknight. Overall a very good find.
