About Iron Works

More gastropub than classic tavern, Iron Works serves innovative and updated takes on American classics, all from a building deeply steeped in the historical fabric of Warwick.

Once home to the Rhode Island Malleable Iron Works Factory, the space is now a gathering spot for locals and also those venturing into town with its proximity to T.F. Green Airport.

Iron Works also boasts an extensive beer and cocktail program, highlighting many of the local breweries that make the New England beer scene so dynamic. In addition, the second floor of the restaurant has dedicated private event facilities that can be tailored to your celebratory needs.

​Joseph Caldarone

Executive Chef Joe Caldarone, a native of Cranston, has been cooking in local kitchens and restaurants since he was a teenager.

As he worked his way up, Chef Joe honed and developed his own unique creative style that combined his love for local ingredients along with his appreciation of fine dining and classic American fare. After helming the kitchens in such locally recognized restaurants as Besos Kitchen and Cocktails and The Grille on Main, Chef Joe brings his experience to Iron Works where he creates a varied and distinctive menu that stays true to that of the classic American gastropub while adding in his own personal creative flair.
