Diner Reviews
  • "The food was excellent! The brick oven pizza was very good. I recommend this to anyone who loves a good pizza. "

  • "We usually like Iron Hill, but the food and service, in particular, really missed the mark this time. I gave the impatient waiter a heads up that my parents were elderly, hoping he would understand that a certain amount of patience might be required....he had no clue. He didn't listen and he acted bothered by dealing with them. We ordered nachos, and the soups arrived right on top of the nachos, then, my dad wasn't finished and the food arrived. I hate it when current courses are still on the table and they bring the next, I feel rushed. This is not a fast food joint. My parents both ordered the baby back ribs, which on prior occasions had been excellent; this time, they were not baby backs, but rather plain, tough spare ribs. "

  • "As always, the food was great, service was wonderful and an enjoyable evening for all. Reservations are really the best way to go, otherwise the wait can be quite long. We go almost every week and find it consistently great."

  • "Not one of the better Iron Hill experiences. We made reservations and were seated right on time in the main dining room. Unfortunately, our party of 4 was given a table right by the entrance to the kitchen. When we asked for a booth, we were told none were available although we could clearly see at least 2 empty booths within 20 feet of us. We were dodging plates for most of our meal. Credit to the staff, though, no spills at all. I suggest moving that table since we had to move a few times when other guests were trying to access a back room, too. If we had a different table placement, the experience would have been much better. Food was fine and our server was very friendly and attentive."

  • "This is one of my favorites - large menu, wide variety and better than the typical beer joint/pub fare. Salads, 600 or less calorie options, sandwiches, entrees, small appetizers. This is one of our regular go-to places."

  • "We had a great time. Accommodation were perfect. Josh (our waiter) was wonderful. He was patient allowing us to converse before ordering. Our food was great."

  • "In a word : Phenomenal !!! Food was excellent and service was great. We had a party of seven and our server never let us run low on drinks. Seafood Bisque was so good we shared it with the whole table. The beers were excellent - we will definitely be back!!!!"

  • "Food was delicious. Server was perfect...not intrusive but perfectly timed. Hoping even at 1pm on a Friday."

  • "We love this place. Came here for dinner after our small wedding ceremony & it has been a special Occasion dining place and meeting place for our family ever since. If it was not so pricey, nor so far (We live in York), we would probably go more often.Seth"

  • "I took my wife here on a date without our 7 yr old and our 2 yr old. It was nothing short of a blast! Great food, great selections and great presentation."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "My husband and I like Iron Hill very much. Staff/servers are welcoming and friendly; the food is consistently delicious. Salads are fresh and crisp; burgers are excellent, as are the nachos and quesadillas, and of course, the brews are some of the finest. I like that the servers are well-prepared and knowledgeable about the beer because I am not and look for guidance on what pairs with the food selection. The King of The Hill club is well worth the cost to join. Points add up quickly. It's a nice perk for being regulars."

  • "Yet again, a delightful evening at Iron Hill. The food is great and the staff very accommodating. We will be back again next week. Thanks."

  • "My favorite in Lancaster County! It has a great cocktail and beer selection. The menu has seasonal specialties and great desserts. It even has gluten free options! Make reservations for the best experience. The staff is great!"

  • "Large menu is a plus. Even the picky eaters in your party will find something. Food was good but pricey. Excellent waitress made the experience worthwhile. Open seating so be prepared for noise."

  • "We come to Iron Hill frequently. We are never disappointed. We come alone and with groups. Food is always great and the, service great, it's a come back place!"

  • "food was good but for what we had was expensive. our server was very efficient and made the dining experience worth it. i had the cheese steak egg rolls they were good but i thought would be larger for $11.95. the onion soup is always great there."

  • "Been to Iron Hill plenty of times before and its a great place every time. This time a group of about 18 of us were saying farewell to a coworker that had received a promotion. Service was great, really attentive to filling drink orders and food came out relatively fast for there being so many of us. Also willing to do separate checks! Just another reason we'll keep going back."

  • "Enjoyed lunch here this week. Our waiter was really friendly and attentive. Everything was done just right. I would highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "The restaurant was not very busy and we were asked which table and side we wanted. The blonde working the hostess stand wasn't friendly but the dark headed young lady was nice. Once we were seated it took a long time for our waitress to appear. She acted somewhat strange but we dismissed it. The next thing we knew she said she was leaving and Luke would be our waiter; she actually never left. We both ordered the prime rib specials. I had the potato and leek soup and he had the salad. Both were excellent as were our drinks. The house white zin was good. As for the meal, the baked potatoes were good, the carrots were ok and the prime rib was disappointing. Flavorless and blah. Luke was great but never again will we do the Prime Rib. Sorry."

  • "There is a large menu with many types of food options. The beer is the highlight of course but we also enjoyed the wine choices. The meal was good and ambiance was fun."

  • "This was my second time @ Iron Hill Brewery. I have enjoyed it both times. Obviously, a reservation is a must since it a very popular. We arrive early and were seated early even with a very full restaurant. The one notable comment is; the service was outstanding. Very friendly and professional server. Can not remember ever having a better experience. The food was very good as well as the beer selection. Overall a very positive experience and I will be back. A must go to place when in Lancaster."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We enjoy Iron Hill for it's diverse menu and cozy casual atmosphere (it's far from feeling like a chain). There is a nice range of dish styles, with clean vegetables and few fried foods, while still always feeling like comfort food. The seating gives options for a span from noisy and bustling, to slightly secluded - if you know to request it ahead of time. There are very limited dessert options, but it's easy to fill up on the large burgers and appetizers instead."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "I made reservations on line - no problem. We got stuck in traffic on the way, called the restaurant and they were able to hold the table. Got seated right away. Everyone in our party enjoyed their food, the beer and root beer was good - all made on site. We had a nice window view. Enjoyed watching the passersby."

  • "A business associate,myself, and our wives met for dinner ,after my wife found the place online. She is vegetarian,so dining out is a little more difficult,she's a very disciplined eater to say the least!! Everybody left raving about the food,and the beer is outstanding(I'm a very disciplined beer drinker) We will most certainly be regular customers from here out"

  • "This was our first time at Iron Hill and we were thrilled with the entire experience! The hostess was fantastic despite wall to wall people waiting and an irate person being rude to her right before us (who didn't have a rez). Our waiter Brian could not have been more thorough or accommodating. Brian went the extra mile for us and I felt completely pampered and like we were in a much higher end restaurant. He really is in our top 5 waiters from the last year. The manager Justin came over and checked on us and seemed genuinely interested in our experience. The meal was fantastic and we enjoyed the ambience as well. Iron Hill honored our seating request as well. We joined the King of the Hill Club and will be back many times in the future!"

  • "There were 6 of us at dinner time. We all had a wonderful time. The food was delicious and the service was A+++++++. We would definitely go back again."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "Place was packed due to Science Fair, but the service and food was prompt and complete. The waiter worked very hard, and we were a pain, but he never let on and was patient and helpful. I do think the prices are getting a little expensive for what you get, but the food is very good and they are helpful for gluten free (GF menu). The GF sandwich roll looked really good; why not get some other GF bread or pizza crust, too, from the same source to adapt more dishes? The noise was considerable, and as many groups had long tables set-up, it was very crowded. It was difficult to carry on a conversation at times. Overall, we were very pleased, as usual. I would request some new vegetarian dishes."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "I had the tuna and it was over cooked and dry. They did bring me another piece of tuna and it was cooked better but was still dry and didn't live up to the menu description. All other food we had was good but nothing that was better than other restaurants in the area but with a higher price tag."

  • "After a freezing cold lacrosse game, we spent Mother-Son time together at Iron Hill for dinner. Made a reservation for 7:00 and seated on-time. We have a hard time picking an entree, because we enjoy so many on the menu..... pizza, crab cakes, pot pie, burgers... and the list goes on. Great atmosphere. Food is delicious. And we always order the cupcake trio. Great spot for family celebrations, ladies night out, or for us the other night.... a chance to discuss college options with your child."
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "We made a reservation online, and when we came in, 5 minutes late and the place was packed, we still were promptly seated. The service was average from our waitress but she was very busy with all of her tables. The only unfortunate thing was the prices. The food was outstanding, but 3 tiny scallops were 13$$ yikes! And I knew I was willing to spend money for my moms 50th bday, but 90$ for two for what we got. I just wish we had more for our money. Overall though Iron hill is a great place to dine. I'll just get a cheap beer next time instead of a 9$ watered down martini."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "We had a reservation but still had to wait 30 minutes. The food was good but for the price could have been better. Large menu selection and the beers were very tasty. Once seated the service was very good and friendly. We will try it again to see if the food is a better value."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Once we were seated the menu had a great selection and our waiter was great! I would recommend this restaurant to a friend just not on a Saturday night. The restaurant can not handle the crowds checking in. A reservation is an arrangement made in advance to have a table ready when you arrive. Not waiting 30 minutes after your reservation time, and have to ask for a manager to finally get seated."

  • "Julie was one of the best servers that we have had at Iron Hill. The food was good; the nachos had just the right amount of seasoning; the last few times we were there, the nachos were loaded with salt."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "This place is fast becoming a personal favorite. Their microbrews are always superb, and the food has never been anything short of miraculous. As far as price, the perfection of the food served warrants even a doubling of price to compensate for quality, but the current ratio is definitely in the favor of the diner. I've been here about 5 times and each time it seems they've outdone themselves. I would/do recommend Iron Hill to anyone new in town or just visiting."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "The food was good. Their sweet potato fries are a must try. The dipping sauces that come with them are amazing. For a micro brewery the beer prices are actually quite decent."
