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
