Iron Horse Tavern Restaurant Review

: With its dark wood, exposed brick and open concept, Iron Horse Tavern is a nod to the public houses of yesteryear. Reclaimed wooden floors and a painted tin ceiling complete the rustic-industrial look, while oversize windows bring the outdoors in. The eclectic menu is traditional yet contemporary, blending styles from across the globe. Shared plates include Asian-style street tacos and beer-brined chicken wings, while mains include Korean fried chicken, Hawaiian-style rib-eye and bacon-jam crusted salmon. Other offerings are a macaroni and cheese bar, featuring stir-ins such as jalapeƱos, pesto and bacon, along with pizzas, burgers, sandwiches and salads. Desserts are a must, and include red velvet "Ho Hos" and a churro waffle sundae.
