My wife and I went to the Iron horse last week to see " The record Company" perform. The Band was incredible, and only helped. The inside decor is pretty simple. A couple of levels of seating makes it feel unique. Not a bad seat in the house. The staff is really on it and organized. The biggest shock to... More

The only way to get a good seat for an Iron Horse concert is to arrive very early and eat there. In the past the food has not been very good, but this time it had significantly improved. We had wings, onion rings, burgers and salads. Everyone was pleased.

We have been to the Iron Horse twice, both times to see The High Kings Irish band. The food was good and reasonably priced, seating was comfortable and cozy and the staff was very efficient and pleasant. The line to get in moves quickly and the band was really fantastic. Would definitely go again.

Intimate music venue with excellent sound. We read the reviews and got in line for entrance early at 4:45. We were ushered in at 5:30, promptly got our tickets (have your ID ready). We got a front row table and had a fantastic waitress who took great care of us. The food was decent. The room has great sound. The... More

Smallish, intimate listening room, serving drinks and food. Didn't try the food, but the drink were incredibly over-priced. $60 for 3 drafts and 3 mixed drinks, and one soft drink, is outrageous to me. Get there early for best seats, but my advice is to limit your drinking.

I like the iron horse and have seen a good 15+ shows in this venue. What I like is that it is on the smaller size so you can actually see the band that is playing. This past time the tables in front of the stage where removed so that it did not feel as small and there was a... More

First, the good: We love the varied performers who play at this venue. Sometimes we just come and see someone we've never heard of - and it's always enjoyable. Our last trip to IH was to see James Montgomery Band. Excellent, excellent. Now the bad: the food is mediocre at best. My husband refuses to eat here. The dilemma is:... More

During my latest trip to Iron Horse, I was more than frustrated with my experience there. We bought tickets 3 months prior for a blues show. Once we arrived we realized "general admission" was standing room only behind the stairs next to the bar. We could only see the stage thru the steps of the stairs and people were sitting... More

The Iron Horse has lasted when so many other local venues came and went. The music is eclectic, so I can only speak to the times I went starting in the 80s, and after moving back to the area mid-aughts. Having the chance to see the late Doc Watson, Willie Dixon Bill Morrissey remain some of my greatest musical memories.... More
