    As usual, Iron Star was great for a friend group lunch. We all love the various salads. Now that only half is open, it does get a little noisy and crowded. Both not fatal, but annoying. We are all hopeful things will get back to normal someday, for now, Iron Star is still our 'Go to' for lunch!

    Birthday … Very rude staff very rude management I’ve been coming there for over 10+ Had a little family outburst. Was asked to leave no problem but the manager she put her hands on me around my arm and my arm is sore and bruised and she made me fall because I could not walk and she was making me walk before I got my bearings and my balance very hurt ambulance was called and ambulance more than 45 minutes… But the manager on duty that night has been the rudest person I have encountered in any restaurant! If I had been another color I believe the situation would have been handled different and she had no business putting her hands around my arm pulling it. That was my child that I was discipline because it was needed and warranted I should not have been asked to leave in the first place especially when it was my son‘s birthday and we come there every year for all three of ours! I have brought much business to Iron star…

    Disappointed in the Iron Star Cornbread appetizer. Muffins were dry and crumbly and served at room temp. Certainly could not spread any butter on them. Roasted brussel sprouts were more charred than roasted. The brussels were dry and fibrous. Sweet potatoes were ok. Sliced brisket was moist and tender, but a bit on the fatty side. Pulled pork was unimpressive. All in all, this place is overrated.

    Our family was passing through for travels and stopped in for BBQ. You definitely want to have a reservation, but any wait would be well worth it. All of their smoked meats were absolutely phenomenal. If you’re a pickle lover, the pickles are to die for and the greens were perfection. We finished off our meal with the chocolate cake and bread pudding. It was the best bread pudding I have ever had. The only criticism was the fancy Mac n cheese. There wasn’t anything fancy about it and the flavor was completely lacking. When you have local artisan cheddar on your appetizer platter, I would expect a lot more of a Mac n cheese from a southern bbq restaurant.

    Delicious main course selections with some uniquely prepared sides make this a special place. Our server was neat, friendly and efficient. The room is noisy during busy times; it is definitely not the place for a quiet dinning experience but is a warm, cheerful social atmosphere. Although we did not have dessert this time they have some tempting selections.

FYI , I have leg in cast and recd phone call from management if I had left a pad. Didn’t but what a extra consideration. Go for the food but get best over the top service ❤️⭐️👏🏻

    Not much on the menu is diet-friendly, but I thought I chose reasonably: filet, sweet potatoes and fried okra. After trying to eat “clean” the previous 2weeks, my meal felt greasy. I do not use bbq sauce on steak usually, but the filet definitely needed a kick. I was with 5 other family members, 3 of them kids old enough to order for themselves. None were able to finish. It’s probably just me, but I WAS a little disappointed. I usually love Iron Star.

    Overall, the food was very good. The corn muffin appetizer was excellent. Once again, I had the St. Louis style ribs and they were excellent as were the baked beans. My wife had the brisket which she said was quite good. Our only quibble was the baked okra which came as long strips and the okra inside was mushy which made it difficult to eat. The service was excellent.
