I've eaten there twice. The first time was horrendous, error after error & the food was... not good. The second time was good.... I was surprised. I'll give it one more shot.

Went with my husband on a Thursday evening to hear Pigeons Playing Ping Pong and Dopapod. Setups for each group were done quickly. The music was fantastic, lighting and acoustics was great. The place filled up with a younger crowd who were excited, dancing enthusiastically...More

Ironworks books some pretty good shows. They serve bar food and have a good size bar. They also have a side patio.

We didn't eat anything. We only came for a pre game beer (or 3). The beer was delicious and the atmosphere for pre-game was outstanding. It got busy fast and it was standing room only when we left.

Overpriced drinks. Rude staff. We met the owner as well who was a also a dick. Thought it would be a cool place to go after the game but we were wrong. We'll stick to the Cobblestone from now on.
