    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.

    We've been eating here for years and hadn't been back in a while. The food was still fantastic, great gluten free menu for our celiac family member, and great beer. It is on the noisy/festive side. There is a great kid's menu for very little ones and plenty for our tweens to eat too.

    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.

    Whether you are looking for Sunday Brunch or a lunch or dinner date with friends, the Iron Hill Brewery is a great choice. We have been there several times and have always found that the menu choices and food preparation and presentation are excellent. The service is is both friendly and efficient and the general atmosphere is pleasant, clean, and welcoming.

    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?

    The food is great but the service was slow. We had a waitress in training with another waitress and the 2 of them didn't come back to check on us after the appetizers came out. We had really spicy food and no water or drinks to wash it down with.

    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.

    We love Iron Hill & go there twice a month. Overall I would give it a 4.5 rating (out of 5) based on dozens and dozens of visits over the years. Our most recent visit fell a bit short. It was a Monday so there were few other patrons. The server was friendly but we waited a long time. My father's martini (which he orders regularly) was significantly short- at least 3/8". We told the waitress and she said she would tell the bartender. The second one was equally short! There was no spillage on her tray & we were 30 feet from the bar service station. A bar that serves a short martini twice loses points. Marisa the manger on duty came over & offered to remove both from our check- but we settled for one. Food was great as usual.

    I recently made a reservation after I heard about their gluten-free menu. As a diagnosed Celiac, finding a restaurant that will accommodate my needs sometimes proves difficult. My experience at Iron Hill was wonderful. The staff were very knowledgeable. I was pleased with the variety of the gluten-free menu as there was a little bit of everything! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a delicious gluten-free meal.

    We dine at iron Hill in West Chester at least twice a month- sometimes more. We request the same seating area (off the main floor which is very noisy and busy) and are usually seated within 10 minutes of our reserved time. Dinner was wonderful- the service was a little slower than usual- but we were ok with that. We do think that Iron Hill should consider a family- free area- there were crying babies and children running in the aisle next to our booth. If parents are letting their kids do that, the restaurant must put in place barriers to disrupting others. It is an ongoing issue- but was not a particular problem Saturday. We would not be going there so often if it was a BIG problem something for the owners/managers to consider.

    The bartenders take care of you quickly and with polite attention, but the front bar is a lively and noisy place on Friday evenings. Once you are seated in the back, however, things quiet down and you can enjoy a peaceful and pleasant meal.
