Rhode Island is a great state for restored spaces that are used for great restaurants. An example of this is seen with Iron Works Tavern. The space used to hold the offices of the Iron Works Factory. So the restaurant has a industrial chic, old school feel.
Granted when we went for dinner we were not concerned about the ambiance. We were celebrating a birthday but due to several factors were running a bit behind. So come time for dinner we were starving.
Luckily, Our dining experience was good, the menu was straightforward, and the waitstaff attentive. For an appetizer (excuse the picture we were hungry) we ordered Lamb Lollipops. Which arrived served on white hummus with Chimichurri on top. The lamb was well seasoned and paired well with the hummus, this appetizer was was finished pretty quickly.
For entrees we ordered the 9 0z Steak Frites (Steak and fries) which was paired with Chimichurri, Herbed Fries, and Parmesean and Argula Salad. This was a decent entree but the flavor factor was not there.
The other entree was the Roasted Half Chicken paired with Wild Rice pilaf, Roasted Carrots, Green Beans, and Chicken Jus (meat gravy). This was a disappointment considering the flavor was lacking for the steak dish, this one lacked salt completely. Even starving this dish didn’t leave an impact.
Overall Iron Works Tavern was a good restaurant. The flavor in the entrees were lacking, but it could just be bias on our part considering our palettes West African. So I would say check out Iron Works Tavern and come to your own conclusions.
