Red’s Corner is a beer garden and food truck park with a two-acre outdoor green space neatly organized to provide utilities and amenities enabling up to 6 food trucks to remain on a permanent, semi-permanent, or daily basis. The taproom, an inviting Carolina cottage situated at the entrance of the property, features a classic “southern porch” where people can sit in the shade under fans and sip cold beer, wine, and other popular drinks as they relax awaiting their food.

Red’s Corner is open to local vendors as a “farmers market” for their produce or crafts, and for fun seasonal events like a pumpkin patch in the fall for kids, Christmas trees and hot chocolate in the winter, and live music or outdoor movies in the spring and summer. Finally, Red’s is the perfect location for family reunions, work gatherings, wedding parties, or other occasions.  

Just off Interstate HWY 1, on the southeast corner of SW Broad Street and Morganton Ave, Red’s Corner is adjacent to Southern Pines’ downtown business district and is at the geographic epicenter of the explosion in housing and business expansion projects currently underway in the Southern Pines/Aberdeen/Pinehurst communities.  

Twelve beer taps will serve a variety of beers and a fun non-alcoholic root beer for kids. The beer selection will be a mix of national best sellers to satisfy everyone’s taste, while a variety of regional favorites will offer a chance for folks to enjoy great microbrews.  Red and White wine, seltzers and Kombucha will also be sold for those who want to enjoy something different with their meal or after morning yoga on the lawn.

Utility services (power, fresh water, sanitary sewer, propane refills, garbage/refuse management) for up to 6 food trucks to “hook up” and operate/remain indefinitely. Commissary kitchens: one kitchen is adjacent to the property and others are located within 1 mile. Limited dry storage available.

Southern style porches and arbors with fans and heaters for comfortable seating. Fire pit and water feature (in the future). Farmers market where local vendors will be able to set up a cart out on the lawn and sell their produce or crafts each day. Lawn sculptures/jungle gym for children to enjoy. Dog friendly so our best friends can join us

Experience the warm and welcoming service and trendsetting American cuisine at Ironwood, nestled in the heart of historic Pinehurst in the beautiful North Carolina Sandhills. Our seasonal menu expertly combines the signature flavors of the South with local and international ingredients.

Vince Continenza purchased Ironwood, originally called Ironwood Cafe, on May 22, 2006. Initially, he kept the existing staff, as well as the original menu.

One morning, after month two of ownership, Vince walked through the door and instantly felt like an intruder in someone else’s restaurant. This is when he began making Ironwood a place of his own.

Over the next few months, significant changes were made to the restaurant, including a new layout in parts of the dining area and the introduction of a new menu. After these changes were made, he walked through the door, stood back, looked around and proudly said, “Now this is my restaurant”.

Many more changes and improvements have followed over the years, making the Ironwood one of the Pinehurst/Southern Pines area’s most popular and successful dining establishments.

Our Unique Setting…

Tucked in between the towering North Carolina pines along historic Midland Road, guests park their cars in the surrounding natural sand and pine needles and enter through Ironwood’s signature patchwork door. There they are warmly greeted by a smiling hostess or by Vince himself. Ironwood’s atmosphere is both inviting and casual. Bar seating includes high-top tables, and flat-screen TV’s for viewing the day’s golf and sports coverage. The separate dining room is modern, spacious and airy, while the patio offers a taste of true Southern hospitality with al fresco dining under old southern magnolias and features a stunning fire-enhanced fountain.

Our Staff…

Ironwood’s staff is friendly, experienced and knowledgeable. In fact, some of the original staff still remains to this day! our menu… Ironwood’s diverse menu ranges from casual to gourmet, featuring trendsetting American cuisine and incorporating local, seasonal ingredients as often and wherever possible.
