A spacious lobby welcomes you with dark wood, repurposed iron, and artisanal seating. A bench made of reclaimed smoke racks and wood, charred black by the two fires and made beautiful by local craftsman Richard Craft sits against the north wall and leads the eye to a charcoal grill behind glass, a smokey window into the world of The Iron Horse chefs. Blues Trail and Iron Horse memorabilia are on display nearby, yours to purchase for the memory. A large metal staircase twists upward on the south side. Behind the backs of the smiling hostesses waiting to seat you, The Iron Horse Grill dining room opens up and music fills the air.
