Ashland Virginia

Trains...and No Worries

On the corner of Ashland's main street, Railroad Avenue, and the busiest rail line in the East, Iron Horse's two-story beacon is hard to miss. Set in a 100+ year-old building that formerly housed Cox's department store, Iron Horse has become a community landmark as well as home to the one, true ''Center of the Universe.''

From your seat in our Corner Bar or on the best sidewalk café in Ashland, sit back and watch the world turn. Iron Horse is the best vantage point to watch traffic on the busiest rail line on the East Coast. Choose from our crafted house cocktails, local draft beers, or well-chosen wine list while browsing our café or brasserie style menus.
