I had a birthday party for my dad's 75th upstairs in the private room. The room was beautiful and the food was delicious. The best part was the service! The staff was helpful and accommodating. I will definitely come back!

Had dinner at this restaurant while staying at adjoining HGI. Service was good and quick, food was very good. Atmosphere was typical sports bar but not overpowering. Enjoyed my dinner as I had the special which was a veal chop and it was excellent. I would visit this restaurant again when staying at this hotel

Love this place. Always eat and have a drink here when visiting in Warwick. Even when I don't stay at the now too expensive Hilton Garden Inn, I always find time to meet friends at the IWT or enjoy it by myself. Great place and the Half priced appetizers at happy hour are a great deal, and delicious too.

WOW what a great complement! T0M02825-the staff was happy to hear that the IWT is a favorite restaurant of yours. Thank you for making the extra trip to see us even when you are not staying at the Hilton. Let us know the next time you will be in town, so I can say hello in person More

Nicely decorated upscale pub with upscale prices. Ok if service matches. When a drink is over 10. Then fill the glass. Bartender even looked at the half full glass, and still put it down in front of me. This is the first impression and suggests there isn't a drive to grow a customer base. Don't think I'll go back, other... More

Iron Works Tavern is housed in a beautifully restored, historic landmark building in Warwick near the airport. Good food, friendly staff and great bar to sit, eat, chat and enjoy the ambiance. Wish it was closer to home but will visit again next time in the Warwick area.

Great service and great food. We had the quinoa salad (has onions even though not listed) but they were quick to remake with no fuss and we had the short ribs which were melt in mouth and lean. Bourbon maple apple crisp to top off. Yum!

Thank Yvonne L
Lori P, Manager at Iron Works Tavern, responded to this review

Yvonne L thank you for the feedback on your recent experience. I have shared this with the Chef and his team. Glad to hear we were able to correct the mistake with your salad and it sounds like the apple crisp made a perfect ending. See you next time you are in town--before or after your flight More

Ate dinner here two nights because it was connected to the hotel where I was staying, and I didn't want to drive around. First, it's a tavern -- so the bar dominates. It is incredibly loud and very dark. When I travel on business alone, I like to read while I'm waiting and eating. Not a chance here with the... More

Kay K thank you for bringing these details to our attention. I have sent you a message to reach out to me at the tavern to discuss this further. We do have some obstacles in this 100-year old building with the high 30 feet ceilings; and all the brick add to the noise level. Chef and I have reviewed your... More

Nice place for a date or business meeting! Good service and food. We enjoyed the seasonal stuffed pumpkin. Everyone at our table chose the bacon infused meatloaf. It was a huge portion and a little dry to our liking.
