With a two-story sign located on the busiest rail line in the East, The Ironhorse is an undeniable landmark in Ashland, VA. Since 1993, The Ironhorse has provided fine food and drink to locals, travelers and destination diners in the heart of Ashland. As Ashland has appointed itself "center of the universe", The Ironhorse serves as the "restaurant at the center of the universe" where you're always "welcome back." The Ironhorse presents a seasonally changing, market-driven menu that features hand-cut steaks and fresh regional seafood, as well as chef-inspired nightly specials. Lunch (11:30-2:30) and dinner (5:30-10:00) are served Monday thru Saturday - with a light fare menu continuously available all day. Sunday brunch is served from 10-2:30. A welcoming Bistro on one hand, an inviting neighborhood pub on the other; Ironhorse also offers a family-friendly, casual fare menu. Dining reservations gladly taken.
I enjoyed going to the Ironhorse under the original owner, but I am very pleased with the new owner as well. The small town character is not lost here. The staff is friendly, the food is delicious, the menu choices are evolving, and the live music is great. They are making improvements to the operations every day. Kudos to the ownership and if you have not been in the last 6 months, give it another chance.
I had heard so many great things about this place. My family and I went on a Friday night to experience the wine,food and the music. The wine was good,the music was great, the food was ok. The attitude of the staff/owner is what makes this place BAD. Everyone that works there seems so unhappy. Happy workers make for happy service. As much as the food is there you would expect great service. With the times the way they are, I guess the people that work there are happy to have a job. We will not be returning to The Ironhorse!
Being new to the town of Ashland, my husband and I were anxious to try the Iron Horse. The townies raved and cautioned we would need a reservation for this popular restaurant. So, finally, we went for dinner. It was to say the least, a huge disappointment! The server was slow to take drink orders and even slower bringing them to the table, and this was a Monday evening with at most � of the tables occupied.. We waited on drink refills for over 20 minutes. Dinner was an even bigger disappointment. The veal was bland at best, the potatoes cold and hot as if they had been poorly reheated in the microwave . And the prices are outrageous for the poor quality of service and food. My husband recently returned to the bar with business associates and the service was just as slow for just drinks and so/so appetizers. Needless to say, we will not be returning to the Iron Horse or recommending it. My advice is to skip Ashland and go the real city of Richmond for a decent meal.
I stumbled on this place on a trip to Ashland for the first time. I ate at the bar and was pleasantly shocked at the quality and creativity of the food. The scallops with grits (who woulda figured!) were unbelievable! My only issue was seeing all of the other dishes served (venison, stuffed flounder and ribeye) and wishing I could have some of each. I had a pecan/chocolate pie dessert that was wonderful. The trains running right outside of the front door make for a very cool ambiance. I'll be back again during the remainder of my visit.
