There are so many great family spots around the valley to check out if you are looking a good meal. This month’s Your Table is Ready takes a look at the food and service at Ironwood American Kitchen at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess.
Our family had a chance to check out this great spot during the holiday festivities at the Scottsdale Princess. While it was a very busy time during December, it is a great spot to check out any time of year. The menu is full of wonderful comfort-food type dishes, something for everyone at your table.
Our family tried a variety of different menu items during our visit to Ironwood American Kitchen. We started with the delicious Noble Bread- two different ones. One with cheese and one with charcuterie. Great way to kick off our meal.
A few of us at the table tried out the Double Stack burger and it was a definitely a filling meal. None of us could finish the burger fully but we all enjoyed every bite. My oldest son is not as much of a burger fan and he tried one of their delicious pasta dishes, which he proclaimed as a very satisfying dish!
There is also a good looking kids menu, which we did not utilize this time around. Both my boys, ages 10 & 13, were pretty hungry and neither opted for the options on the kids menu, rather looking for a larger, regular size portion.
The space isn’t very large but has good indoor seating space as well as an outdoor patio. Since it was chilly outside in December when we checked it out, we opted for the indoor seating but there were plenty of people eating outdoors as there appeared to also be heaters on the patio.
Ironwood is a good mix of a variety of cuisines, bringing Arizona agriculture into most dishes. The chef and his team work to bring guests the best organic product, dairy and meat options available. Ironwood American Kitchen is not the only restaurant on the property of the hotel but it is considered as the main dining room of the hotel, offering breakfast, lunch, dinner and brunch.
The restaurant and its chefs also want to make sure that customers with a variety of dietary needs are able to enjoy dishes on property so there is something for everyone in your party and they are more than happy to make any additional adjustments necessary for diners.
For our family, this dinner option was a great idea during our stay and we would definitely eat there again in a future stay at the hotel. Also a great place to stop when just visiting Scottsdale or the area for the day.
