We have visited the iron skillet twice in the last month. They have a couple of dishes with incredible sauces. Their sirloin tip appetiser with pita bread was amazing, one of the best sauces I have had. The other dish, the drunken sailor is also a stand out with the sauce. We also had the rancher burger and another burger,... More

We arrived on a weeknight, had a reservation and were seated at a table near the door. It's probably a good idea to request one of the more comfortable looking booths when you make your reservation so you don't get seated near the door ( cold blasts of air as the door opens). We did request another table, but the... More

Thank you so much for your feedback. Please feel to check out our bar just down the hallway if the dining room is getting packed, it boasts the same menu and service in a more intimate setting. We are glad that you enjoyed your food, and hope we have the chance to welcome you back soon. More

Even though there are burgers and beer on the menu, nothing here is ordinary, so be sure to read through the whole menu! We lived in Turkey for a few years, so my husband was happy to see Lamb Kofta listed. The menu is full of interesting food combinations, and there are many options for vegetarians. The fish and chips... More

Looked forward to visiting this restaurants or the first time for dinner with a friend. The staff were very attentive and service was good. The restaurant decor was subpar and needs updating. We were informed that happy hour prices were only valid in the bar so we moved to the bar side. Happy hour was 1.00 off of a $9.00... More

We had a great meal here, called the "Drunken Sailor" with a great bottle of Washington Wine. One of the best seafood meals we have enjoyed in years. This place fills up fast. Also has great burgers. Open kitchen to dining area. They also have a frequent customer discount so be sure to ask. You will be back

Frister and I stopped in the bar on a very rainy night for dinner. The place is cozy, our dinners and wine were tasty and Drew provided excellent service. I asked for his recommendation between two dinner choices and two wines and I really liked both. Santa Irene Malbec, Hopp Salad, Artichoke Chicken Pasta. Would be a nice place to... More

Although The Iron Rabbit is surprisingly spendy, my husband and I had a burger there today to knock your socks off. The burger was made with Painted Hills beef and laden with goodies to our liking...bacon, blue cheese, grilled onions, etc. The fries were also quite tasty.
