Who we are

An homage to modern regional American fare, craft beers, and eclectic whiskeys,
The IRONS tips its hat to Mystic Seaport’s sensibility for casual excellence in dining and social vigor.

The pessimist complains about the wind;
the optimist expects it to change;
the realist adjusts the sails.

––William Arthur Ward

Craft beers

With over two dozen revolving craft beers on tap, a generous selection of premium wines and spirits, and an emphasis on the evolving fascination with whiskey, bourbon, and scotch, there will be no shortage of options in the iron and plank shelves of The IRONS bar.

Exquisite dishes made from the freshest seafood

Feeding the heart

As every heart must be fed, The IRONS delivers with abundance and quality. Anchored by locally-sourced seafood, creative classics, and dishes to share, the rotating menu reflects the best seasonal and local ingredients available.
