Do not eat here - go anywhere else in town. Wish there was a classification below terrible - because that would be a better description of this place The food was awful; ribs cooked very well then ruined by pouring a cup of bottled BBQ sauce over them, tasteless coleslaw, undercooked baked potato topped with raw bacon, mac and cheese...

Robert M, Manager at Maplewood Steakhouse, responded to this review

Did you ask to talk to a manager about your experience? You start this off with "do not eat here" that's a little extreme as we carry a 4+ star rating. If our ribs tasted like they were sauced from a bottle than you probably didn't order them correctly, we have 5 different types of BBQ sauce and you get... More

Family of four travelling through Ironwood. Delicious food, great local beer on tap, family friendly or a place I would go to watch a game with friends. My daughter got the kids Mac and cheese-homemade and good choices for sides. My husband ordered the pig Mac bowl and said it was great. I had the turkey artichoke wrap with sweet... More

I have been eating at this restaurant for years when I am sent to Ironwood for business. I was surprised to see a new menu. I definitely liked the old one better. I had the brisket dinner, and was disappointed it was not smoked. Without the BBQ sauce, there was very little flavor. I got there relatively early, waited to... More

Really sorry you didn't have an enjoyable experience here when you came in this last time. You mentioned a few things I'd like to touch on: You said you came in early and then pointed out the fact that there was only apparently 1 server on the floor. In the U.P. (Ironwood and other small towns) we are in what... More

After a long day of snowmobiling, on some rough trails, my husband and I were starving! The food here hit the spot! We both had burgers and they were great! If Michigan spent some time grooming the trails we would definitely come back up and eat here!

This restaurant has everything ~ great atmosphere with a fireplace, friendly and efficient staff, and fantastic food ~ everything from salads to steak, crab legs to pizza. It's a great place to meet friends for drinks, dinner and live music on Friday nights.

The decor is pretty nice and the bar area was nice and clean. I had draft beer which was cold but not poured well (too much foam). Food was fair, had the barbecue combo which was okay butt he brisket was pretty fatty. Will try someplace else next time up in Ironwood.

Robert M, Guest Relations Manager at Maplewood Steakhouse, responded to this review

Brisket is an extremely fatty/muscley cut of meat, if you take the fat out you lose the flavor. If you do not like fat you will not like brisket. Personally I think it tastes amazing but I'm not a fat lover so I do tend to stay away from it, it's a texture thing for me. Thanks for taking time... More

What we thought would be a nice steak meal turned into gas and growling stomachs. I ordered the filet as did my wife. We had an option of soup or salad. When we asked about the soup we were told the soup of the day was chili, which is not a soup. I had to pay $4 extra for a... More

John I cannot begin to apologize enough for your experience, it truly is baffling especially considering the reviews we've had recently about how great everything is. I can assure you the filet I buy is choice, it's absolutely the best quality that we can get our hands on at $14.98 per Lb. I've never heard anything bad about them ever,... More

We always visit the Maplewood when we are in Ironwood for skiing. This year they had a new menu and the place has a nice facelift. My wife had a burger and I had the salmon. Both were excellent. The service was excellent. Before dinner I had a cocktail and a nice salad with lots of good stuff. The salmon... More
