This was my first visit to Iron while in Pensacola on business. The yellowfin tuna was amazing and the variety of craft cocktails was varied and interesting. The staff was friendly and attentive. I hope to visit again!

Everything was excellent - service and food. The fish and lamb shank were not over cooked or overdone - they used fresh ingredients and allowed them to shine.

Took our son to Restaurant Iron for his birthday. We had reservations and were seated immediately. The wait staff were professional, fun and knowledgeable. The food was creative and delicious. We will definitely eat there again when we return to Pensacola.

I wouldn't go in cut offs and flip flops. Most people there were dressed in business casual. I did see a couple in jeans. I hope you go and enjoy the restaurant as much as my husband and I did.
