This restaurant is delicious. Great staff, atmosphere, and food. Pricey but well worth it. Steaks are delicious. I had my Oscar style and it was to die for. I can't wait to go back!

We really wanted to like this restaurant. The setting is perfect, in the middle of town, on the river, and nicely decorated. We ordered the rib eye specials and I was very disappointed. The meat was dry, tasteless, and I did not finish it. The bread is to die for. So order the bread, a nice glass of wine, and... More

Had dinner here on a busy Saturday night. The steaks are awesome, tender and tasty. You can order a smaller portion which is also nice. The wine list is very good, Sliver Oak at a reasonable price! If you're staying at the Ironworks or not, I recommend this restaurant.

This restaurant is in the Ironworks Hotel, right downtown in Beloit, a city once famous for its iron and other industries. A historic feel, with dozens or photos of the city's past. A good, moderately priced selection of appetizers, ranging from bruschetta to Oysters Rockefeller. Full bar, and at $8.50 for a very generous Beefeater Martini, one that won't break... More

We recently took a customer and his wife to this restaurant. They suggested it as we are not familiar with Beloit. It did not disappoint! The bruschetta was unusual (lots of toppings piles on the bread) but it was delicious, and the sauce for the coconut shrimp was also tasty. We all had ribeyes - it is a steakhouse after... More
