It was with some trepidation that we planned our company Christmas Party for 35 people here, as we had never been here before and we made our decision to have it here solely on the basis of a friend's recommendation. We were very impressed with the quality of the service that we received. The food was surprisingly good for a... More

Unique bar/grill/lounge in a trendy area of Calgary. We came after a concert at the Saddledome so we missed the live music they offer - stopped at 11pm on a Saturday night. I don't think this is a late-night or after-hours establishment (11 seemed early to be shutting the stage down). Has a rustic/eclectic decor to it. Friendly staff. Had... More

wonderful, excellent, awesome The food is top quality and although the choice is smaller. The Jazz / folk music on offer is as good as you will find in Calgary. The stage is very close to the diners giving that close up, intimate feel, sometimes the tables are moved later for some dancing! It gets busy here so I would... More

We are in the middle of the Calgary summer Jazz festival with a number of events happening at the Ironwood. I'm reluctantly not going there because of our previous experience. We attended a CD release party here at the end of February, several years after our last visit for another Jazz music event. Each time, there were two crowds there.... More

Saturday afternoon walking around Inglewood brought us to the Ironwood for lunch. An amazing blues jam was on the go all afternoon; the place is a great live music venue. Food was great, though beer tap selection was a tad limited. This is not standard "pub grub"; bison burger, decent salads, wraps and such. Been back numerous times since first... More

I went here with a couple of friends to see Wil play. I love the neighbourhood of Inglewood, and there was plenty of parking nearby. The venue was intimate and cozy, but I thought that added to the atmosphere. The food wasn't anything special, but everyone was friendly. And of course, Wil was AMAZING!

Went on the weekend for a show. It was during the afternoon and I was able to take my kids. Wow, did they enjoy it. It's great to have a spot like this in town. As someone who is into live music I will say that professional production and sound makes a big difference. Ironwood sounds great and has really... More

The music selection has been great , but I still find the food under whelming as a foodie. But having said that the calamari has been a stand by for me. Still waiting after years for a surprise change in the food! Get there early for everything or there will be no where to sit......crazy busy when popular groups come.... More

This is such a wonderful place to watch live music, the atmosphere is great and very intimate. There really isn't a bad seat in the place. The service is excellent and the food is good too and not expensive. Don't miss the chance to see some great performers.

I have had the pleasure of performing in this venue more than a few times and have never seen an unhappy face. They lay out amazing cuisine, and some of the best musical acts touring in Canada. I always look forward in returning to the Ironwood Stage & Grill!
