“great food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2014

Hotel restaurants are not typically my first choice when considering where to dine out. However, we arrived in Milwaukee on a Friday evening and were staying at the Ironhorse Hotel and wanted to keep it simple. We ended up having a fabulous meal and enjoyed great service. Our waiter made great recommendations for both beer and mixed drinks. Entrees were excellent and creative. The ambiance of the restaurant, like the hotel itself, is refurbished industrial with interesting lighting and artwork.

Dear Akron,

Thanks for sharing your review with everyone. It is always a pleasure to hear comments about our food and beverage programs not falling into the same "tired hotel restaurants" as many hotel restaurants do. Our menus, intuitive service model, and people all believe and work every day for this. Thanks again for taking the time to share your experience with us and the world and hope to see you back soon.

If I can be of any service to you during your next visit please don't hesitate to contact me directly at jcotton@theironhorsehotel.com

LA J,

Thanks for sharing your review and very happy to hear our "re-do's" of the real Route 66 is better than the originals them self. Look forward to having you back soon and be sure to check out of Easter Brunch as it is one of our biggest and most desired. This year we will have a seafood station with snow crab, gulf shrimp and much more...including bottomless mimosas.

If I can be of any service to you in the future please don't hesitate to reach out directly. My email is jcotton@theironhorsehotel.com

Warmest
