The $15 for a tent reservation is totally worth it. The tents are cute and allow for some privacy. They have a really great set up for social distancing.

Best thing we've done in 11 months! Food was on point, the service was amazing, staff were SO nice, the atmosphere was amazing. this 40 year old mom was so happy she was looking at tik tok thanks to her teens and saw this come up! Well worth the $15 reservation fee! Also COVID measures were amazing. We haven't been out to dinner in a year, this was our first try, it was the BEST!!!!

The whole experience was above par. The staff was friendly and efficient, the food and drinks were yummy and teepee was inviting. Only thing I would suggest is no metal chairs in the teepees even if they are covered. In our northern michigan winter it was a bit cold on the booty. Grateful for the wooden chairs for sure!

We have visited Iron Fish a half-dozen times since spring and enjoyed it very much each time. The staff is friendly, the liquor is good, the food (especially the cheesy garlic flat bread) is good and the ambiance is great. Everyone(!), guests and staff are glad to be there. Now that it is winter, the tents are a great addition, though I look forward to being able to sit out by the fire pits and bring the pup. Big thumbs up to Iron Fish. Personal wish list - some wine on the menu would be nice - my wife is not a real liquor drinker.... Thanks for all you do! We'll be headed back soon!
