    Wonderful place to bring the family. Our waitress was very accommodating with our 3 young grandchildren. So much more fun for them and for us than staying at home for dinner. Highly recommended for groups. C44

    Our group of seven truly enjoyed our dining experience at Iron Hill. The menu had quite a lot of selections to choose from. The salmon salad was delicious and so were the pot pies! The server truly knew the menu and verified we would enjoy what we picked and we did! The beer sampler was fun and several of us enjoyed that. The delicious food, nice atmosphere and superior service will bring us back!

    The wait staff was very attentive, pleasant and service was above average. It was nice to be able to sample the craft beers prior to ordering. Iron Hill beers are average as far as quality, taste and finish. Ore Hill IPA best I had and I would recommend. Food was average and a little overpriced for portions and quality. One big complaint our group had was noise. It was a Friday night and place was busy but it was hard to talk to person across table. Seek out the back room of restaurant for a quieter less hectic spot to eat and commiserate.

    Loved the Garcia Pizza (my favorite) and the Margherita Pizza. Also had the handcut sweet potato fries with the 4 dipping sauces, all were good, that we finished them. This is our family's favorite place, and my favorite for best micro-brew. I have been in IH 3 times in the last week, once in West Chester, and twice in Newark, DE.

    Very nice place, not too noisy, service was great! Most of the food was very good except for the Beef Stroganoff which was made with more of a beef gravy instead of a sour cream sauce the way it should be. Otherwise, we had a great experience.

    We had an out of town guest visiting and wanted to take her to one of our favorite restaurants-so Iron Hill it was! The food was delicious and the service outstanding! They have a special fall menu right now that had some interesting items on it-we all ordered off that menu and not one of us was disappointed!! Everything was delicious!!

    Your place was recommended by a local resident (bride to be). We were in for a wedding. Staff was very friendly, food was great and timely. Those who drank the beer loved it. It was a tad noisy but people were enjoying themselves, so you will have that.

    Iron Hill is a great place to go to get a good variety of food options on the menu from pizza to burgers to wraps, great appetizers. All of the food is fresh and delicious! I have never had a bad experience there and it's my go-to place in town. Service is very good too! Make a reservation if anything is going on in town or on the weekend, especially in the summer, just to be sure!

    I had the seafood pot pie and it was terrific. Our waitress was wonderful. Our reservations were honored and we only had to wait a couple of minutes for them to set up our table, on a very crowded night It is extremely noisy, though, and this does take away from the overall experience.

    Haven't been to Iron Hill in awhile. Took an out of town guest there. The broad menu does really offer a wide range of options - a little somehting for any taste. Our server was very nice, and the beers made on the premise - especially the seasonal ones - were quite tasty and distinctive. Iron Hill is a very dependable and versatile choice for West Chester dining.

    Food and service were good... Negative was that we made online reservations requesting booth. When we arrived on time hostesses fumbled around about our reservation and discussing where to put our group of 3. We were put at the table by the kitchen entrance while booths were open..so reserving online and requesting something does not appear to have any advantage nor do the hostesses follow the online request or recognize a reservation.

    The food was good but the noise was loud. I was there for lunch with 3 others and we could hardly hear each other. The noise level reduced as it got later in the lunch period and we could finally talk at a normal pitch, but then we too had to leave. I also felt that it was dark...a bit dreary. Perhaps it would have seemed brighter had the sun been out and shining through the windows. Our waiter was excellent. Didn't rush us but was always near if we needed him, and provided whatever we asked for quickly and pleasantly.

    The nachos lacked salt and flavor. Tasted like something I could make at home and I could do better. I felt like it was a waste of $. Dinner was fair. My salmon burger was good. The 3 others got the black and blue and complained that it had too much blue cheese and overpowered the taste of the rest of the burger. IH has good beer and mixed drinks tho. I never had a great experience here but it's simply okay.

    There were three of us for a small meeting. The host staff was very attentive, and the food was great. Our table was ready within minutes of our appointed time. All the beer is brewed on site and it was very, very good. The food was great and I'm a vegen. They had no problem taking care of me. But best of all was Kate our Waitress. She was screaming busy, but she made is think we were her only table in a very, very, very busy place.

    As someone that recently became gluten free due to a sensitivity its really difficult to find a place to eat that still has a great gluten free menu. The servers are knowledgable about traces and how the food is prepared which is extremely helpful. I have been a patron at this Iron Hill for years and I will continue to be one due to the great service and food.

    We were really excited to try this place out. It was packed, which boded well but then the night started off with the server explaining that I needed an id to drink. I forgot mine in the car. I do not look under 21. Ok whatever let's apply rules blindly I get it. Manager apologized and offered a free beer if I got the id which was blocks away. Food came, tiny portions for the appetizers then the pizza which was over priced and unremarkable. Did I mention we waited a half hour even with a reservation?

    Food was awesome, perfectly cooked, the beers are great and brewed on site which is cool. It was pretty load and very full but it was not distracting. It is on the higher end of moderate pricing, expect about $30-$40 per person for a nice dinner. They should focus on getting a wait staff that is better trained because I think having to ask for water more than once is pretty poor for the level of the restaurant. Make sure to get reservations during peak times.
