    I don't know if you were short staffed or what Our service was poor and I do not care for the back room It's like a porch or annex not like being in the main dining room

    Casual atmosphere. We were there for lunch, and it was easy to carry on a conversation without having to shout. Different, delicious take on standard food. To us, the most important factor is good service. Though service has fallen off just about everywhere, Iron Star’s waitstaff is exceptionally good.

    Upon arrival we set at the bar and had a mixed drink. We have collectively cut back on our alcohol consumption, as we are not total T totalers but for health reasons we sparingly use alcohol now. The drinks were great, both having a whisky mix. Old fashion and a drink called sweeter weather. After that, we set down at our table and were able to float our bar tab to our table. We tried the pimento cheese as our starter, and ordered the Wednesday special (baked potato brisket) and a prime rib. The prime rib came with two sides, so we tried the fried okra and the Mac and cheese. delicious...we didn't order any desert, but did try the fresh corn muffins with a side of whipped butter and jalapeño jelly. We only had room for a half each and took the rest home for later. Iron Star is a fantastic place to eat!

    Nice place food was spot on and really great. The service was while it wasn’t great it was ok could have been more although it was a bit. I was on a second date with my very beautiful companion and we were seated next to a large birthday party going on with a few rowdy children so the seating could have been better. The food definitely made up for the short coming. It’s a great experience lace for a family type outing but not so much for an intimate date. It was an overall decent experience and I’d highly recommend the food

    Great service and over all vibe. The BBQ is very average! Having spent a lot of time eating BBQ in Austin and northern Texas, it doesn't quite compare, especially for the price. BBQ sauce on the side is store bought for sure. BANANA PUDDING IS BOMB!

    We had such a fantastic meal and new year’s celebration at Iron Star. We enjoyed their old fashioned and pomegranate margarita before the meal and then their incredible tenderloin wedge salad for our entrees. We finished the meal with their banana pudding, which we shared. It was late and our server kindly gave each of us one as she said it wouldn’t keep over the holiday. We couldn’t finish them and she brought us take-home containers for the rest. Service was fantastic throughout our meal. If you haven’t been her or been here in a while, this place is still fantastic!

    The queso with burnt ends was delicious. The chips that accompanied the queso were very good; they had a nice flavor and were crispy. I ordered the salmon with seared green beans, and charred sprouts with carrots. The salmon was delicious served with an avocado sauce and a slice of avocado. The green beans were crispy and had a good flavor. The charred sprouts with carrots were a bit dry. My husband ordered the lite Duroc ribs with whole fried okra and green cabbage slaw. The ribs were nicely seasoned and so tender. Both the slaw and fried okra were excellent.

    Overall this was a nice place with great cornbread but my $30 prime rib was just ok. There were 3 of us eating and no one was really excited about their meal. It could be that our expectations going in were to high but we prob won't be back.

    Great place to dine. Meats, sirloin salad, cornbread and chili were great. Potato salad was dry and baked beans were good. I wished they had a bit sweeter bbq sauce choice, but that’s just really my personal preference. Service was incredible and everyone was so kind. We’d go back for sure
