    We visit Iron Hill Brewery once or twice a year for dinner. Seating is usually delayed, tables are on top of each other, but service and quality of food is very good for the price. Their brews (including their root beer!) are tasty and refreshing. For Central PA, portions are average to small in size but flavor and presentation are very good. Our server, Luke, was attentive and engaging, making this visit fun. Of note, salads are VERY small and have few ingredients in them.

    Went for son's 22nd Birthday. Service was good and the Food was "Just OK". Menu was not what I thought the Iron Hill was known for. Looking for deeper choices instead there were many fewer items. Steaks and seafood. I will go back but more for Lunch or visit the Bar as I have in the past. Just Ok , Lancaster

    Took the family out for dinner and the menu pleased everyones tastes. Pettit fillets for my husband, a seafood shepherd pie for myself. My son had a pizza with spinach and chicken topping and my daughter had the California burger Our meals where accompanied by a chopped salad which had blue cheese and bacon. Every thing was delicious except for the burger. I don't know if it was the seasoning in the burger or the sauce they but on the bun, but I've had better. The service was excellent. When you have hungry kids, that's always a pulse. And my husband was given a tour of the brewery by the Manager just by asking.

    We went to Iron Hill Brewery because it had great reviews on Yelp and a good selection on the kids menu. I made a reservation and off we went. 1. We were seated promptly - which was much appreciated. That was the end of promptness. 2. Our server was a little slow . . . and didn't offer us bread at any time - we saw every other table with bread. 3. We got the steak and cheese egg rolls since they were raved about. For what I paid I expected a much bigger egg roll - or more of them. Four little pieces for $11.50? They tasted okay . . . needed more cheese for sure. I don't know if our person just couldn't handle a big group or what - just wasn't the best service ever.

    Made a reservation at 5:30 on a Friday and we were seated right on time. The restaurant was about 1/4 full when we got there and packed by the time we left - a note to those who don't want to wait and don't make reservations. Calamari appetizer was excellent, and between the four of us we had pan seared beef, scallops, jagerschnitzel, and a salmon salad - all of us rate the food as outstanding. Moderately priced, all meals were under $30 and definitely worth the price charged.

    I have been to Iron Hill Brewery multiple times now. Many of my friends and co- workers come here. This was my first time dining outside.My boyfriend and I came for an early Friday dinner. It was nice being in the sun. The wait staff were great and the food was enjoyable as always. The only thing I would change was that the table for 2 we sat at did not have an umbrella for shade as the other tables did just to cut a little of the light from the face. Otherwise a very pleasant overall experience. Definately recommend to friends who have not been

    We were taken back only a few minutes past our reservation time and it was a busy night. Our server, Lori, was absolutely fantastic in every respect that one would want. My house white zin and his Vienna Red in a King of the Hill tankard were spot on. Each of our meals were delicious! He had the Red Chile Rubbed Flat Iron Steak with smoked mac and cheese, tri-colored peppers and onions with chipotle lime sauce and I had the Petite Filet Mignons with sweet corn and crab sauté, smashed yukon gold potatoes, sautéed spinach and a madeira wine sauce. The kitchen was nice enough to put the crab on the side. We ended the evening with an Apple Crisp that was amazing! The timing of the kitchen was spot on and it was a good night at Iron Hill.

    While we made a reservation thru open table, upon arrival it was more like call ahead seating then having a reservation. The menu choices and food was great, however the time lapse between ordering a beverage and placing our order then progressing thru the meal and getting out check was way too long. We were there for 2 1/2 hours due to all the waiting, not by choice.

    My husband had tried to eat at Iron Hill twice in the past. The wait was always too long (1 hr or more). This time I made advanced reservations online. Our table was ready for us upon arrival. Our waitress was very pleasant and upbeat. My husband tried the beer sampler and loved all but one of the samples. He chose meatloaf for his meal and said it was the best gravy he's ever had. I chose the smoked pork sandwich with french fries. I loved the french fries crispy coating. However, my sandwich roll was very soggy. I ended up taking my pulled pork off the roll to eat it. We would definetly visit again. I would just not get the pork sandwich again.

    You probably already know about or have been to Iron Hill in lancaster, West Chester, or their other locations. It's a decent place to grab a craft brew to start or end a night. The food is alright nothing to amazing and a decent amount over priced for the quality you get. Service was good so that's a plus. I would say that this place is an equivalent to Applebee's maybe a slight step up with a better beer menu.

    Iron Hill is a family favorite because of the wide variety of choices to please all tastes from seniors to toddlers. On our last visit, I was blown away by the delicious and creative blackened catfish entree served with an andouille hash and lovely little salad. It was a perfect summer meal in my estimation.
