While the atmosphere is fun, especially with the great outdoor seating sections, the food quality is something of hit-or-miss. Have had some great meals there and others not so impressive. The service is good and the drinks are good. Exceptional, not really, nice and ok.

Iron Horse felt like a Brew Pub that does food as a sideline. All of our food was good, but by no means great - it makes it more obvious that at least one of their competitors in town does a great job on both food and beer. Service was average - not bad, and our server let us know... More

My wife and I stopped by the Iron Horse recently for dinner. The building is nicely appointed and the atmosphere is good. We seated ourselves and were greeted quickly. The service was very good here. We ordered our food and beers and the drinks were delivered quickly. Good appetizer with very good sandwiches. The burger I had, in particular, was... More

A local recommended this place and it was AWESOME. My husband is a beer lover and likes his hoops. Not me I like the sweet girly drinks. Since he tried the Beer Sampler I was the designated driver for the night. This sampler was a huge surprise. We expected for the price a small plate with little shots, what he... More

We went to this restaurant for an early dinner with friends. I always enjoy the atmosphere here. Service was quick and the server was polite. The lobster mac and cheese was the best!

I never have a problem finding things to eat! Their drink menu is amazing!! The specialty drinks are soooo much fun and delish! We come here fairly often... More

We have eaten at the restaurant regularly over the years. Our last visit was less than satisfying. We went early, experienced so-so service and our very simple burgers were dried out and tasteless. Had the server checked back with us soon after delivering the food, maybe things could have been rectified. He did take off our drinks as a nod... More

This brew pub seems to target the college crowd rather than the dining crowd that likes a good beer with lunch or dinner. Plenty of local beers to pick from, but no local vodka (which is very good). The burgers and fries were just OK. The décor is very pleasant "western wood". It is very noisy, making table conversation difficult.... More

Seems to be a 'happening' place. Good vibe. Don't go there if you want a nice, quiet dinner. It's a bar. Had some good Montana beer. Hubby ordered the 'fish and chips' and was surprised to get sweet potato fries. I'd go back if I lived closer.
