This is our go-to restaurant for the last evening we are in the area. It is in an old general store/post office building that has a truly vintage/rustic ambiance. The food has always been fabulous and very generous portions. A really good wine list to accompany dinner. I love the ambiance of this place. The servers are very helpful but... More

This is such a quaint restaurant full of history. The owners David and Bonnie always make us feel welcome, Always! The food is excellent and certainly worth the price point which may come as a surprise considering the very small town it is in.You can go in for just a drink at the old beautiful bar. It opens at 5:00... More

We had eaten at the Iron Door in the early 80's on a trip to the area. We went back hoping it would be as good as we remembered. We were happily impressed. An outstanding meal and service. My wife had the ribs, very good, and I had the filet mignon. It was perfectly cooked and as good as I... More

What a gem. The food and service were excellent and the building was beautiful. Drinks from the bar were wonderful. We wished we were in the area longer, because we definitely would have been back. Well worth the drive up the mountain!!

My husband and I ate dinner at the Iron Door a couple of weeks ago. We split the stew, beef tips with mushrooms cooked in a red wine sauce. The stew couldn't have been better. The meat was fork tender, moist and very flavorful. For desert we split a piece of berry pie. Everything was made in-house from the caesar... More

I found this place back in the early 1980's. My mother spent most of her teen years in the logging towns around there. So one Mother's Day I decided to take her back to her high school memories. Thankfully for us her high school reunion restaurant wasn't open that day. I found Iron Door and treated her to a fantastic... More

This is one of the best places to have great dinner. The food is outstanding and a great variety. Each meal we have had there has been a dining experience. To suggest a meal would be an injustice as I have never had a bad meal there. The staff is as outstanding as the meals. Always check as reservations are... More

From the location to the food to the owners, everything about the Iron Door is wonderful. The food is always delicious, they have great wine selections and the service is always friendly. You could not ask for a better dinning experience!

First impression would tell you not to enter as the outward appearance would lead you to believe the place is falling down. After entering you embrace an other worldly charm of the old west from long ago. GREAT environment, wonderful wide selection of food, delicious, GREAT service, fully stocked bar with an outstanding old time saloon bar. I highly recommend... More
