You'll find savory flavors and cured meats, plus fresh, local seafood, homemade breads, and sweet treats to finish off your meal.The main dining area features red ceilings, warm coffee-colored walls, and wheat-colored draperies that open to expose a large deck for outdoor dining in the warmer months. The bar features independent tables, a brick wall above the bar, and palomino-print bench seating. Exposed wood framing, open wine racks, and black-and-white photography help create a sense of comfort that will welcome you and invite you back.Husband and wife team, Sean Quinn and Barb Pexa, are the proprietors of Flat Iron Grill.
