Diner Reviews
  • "Our server was charming ... genuinely friendly and helped make our time very enjoyable. Their house beer was stellar - appreciated that they offered free samples and a variety of sizes. Food was well-made and flavorful - great menu that we'll look forward to exploring further. Ambience was sufficiently soothing and quiet enough to hold a conversation - nice that there was some separation between the bar area and dining area - helped limit distractions. We'll be happy to go back again anytime!"

  • "The seafood soup tasted like dishwater with salad shrimp, and tiny bay scallops. The rest of the food was no better than fast food but 10x the price."

  • "The food is so good. The servers are nice. The only downside of this visit was that the server did not keep my iced tea filled. I had to wait 9 minutes for a refill. I always order the red quinoa salad. The way Iron Hill prepares this dish is out of this world."

  • "I used to love Iron Hill and would frequent it often. Lately though, the food has been good but the service makes us almost want to avoid the restaurant. From hostess be extremely unfriendly to our waiter not being able to tend to the amount of tables he was given. Our meal of hummus and then burgers for entrees took 2 hours start to finish. With all of the other great bars/restaurants popping up around Lancaster, I don't know that Iron Hill will be our go-to anymore."

  • "Iron Hill Brewery has a great outdoor space. It was a little warm but as the night moved on it cooled down. The service was decent, I would not say incredible. We had empty glasses quite frequently. I had the pizza and I've had it before- very good then, not so good this time. Probably would not order it again. Overall- the beer was cold and the outside seating was great."

  • "We had reservations for 7:45 p.m. on Saturday, June 14th for Father's Day. It was very busy at that time. They must have been short staffed because we normally don't have to wait. We had ordered our appetizer (my favorite, the fried asparagus and the calamari)and that came to our table before we even ordered our dinner. I ordered a salmon on my salad and the salmon was over cooked. I have had this item numerous times before and this was a first where the salmon was overcooked and dry. My husband ordered the seafood pie which he has ordered before and said it was good as usual."

  • "My husband and I recently moved to Lancaster, and we are delighted to live within walking distance of the Iron Hill Brewery. My last meal there was with a good friend who was visiting for the weekend. We made reservations and were given a great window table. Our server did a wonderful job of making recommendations and helping us decide what to eat and drink. We shared several small plates (delicious sweet potato fries with four yummy dipping sauces), had a leisurely meal with lots of good conversation, and enjoyed every moment of the evening. Wonderful."

  • "We made a reservation for 7 pm on a Friday evening. It did not appear we would've needed to, though OpenTable told us nothing was open in the 6 - 6:45 pm window. No problem, just interesting to note. We were seated outside. As a twosome, one of us was facing west with the sun directly in his eyes. Don't forget the sunglasses - even in (particularly in) the early evening. Our waitress was super-responsive and kept on top of where we were in the meal.....helpful, but not intrusive....pleasant but not over the top. She hit the right balance. We both had a special that evening - swordfish with a spicy kick.....we both enjoyed it, as well as the mesclun salad that preceded it. All told - very nice meal."

  • "Ironhill is one of my favorite restaurants in Lancaster. The food was delicious and the beer was tasty, as always. Usually, the wait service is excellent. This was the first time I was brought the wrong food, but it was corrected very quickly. Our waiter spoke rather softly for a busy restaurant, but he got the job done."

  • "I invited 2 co-workers from outside the area to join me here for lunch. They enjoyed the food, the beer and the beautiful outdoor seating area. Two of us had the crab cake sandwich and all 3 of us had the sweet potato fries - excellent! It was a great choice."

  • "My mom and I had a nice dinner at iron hil and we enjoyed the seafood bisque as a starter. It was a delicious appetizer for us. We also enjoyed a glass of white Zinfandel. Our only concern was that our server wasn't present that often. We took our order, brought our drinks, and our check and that was it."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Excellent trio of specialty egg rolls with a quartet of dipping sauces. Great selection of beers. (my favorite: an especially hoppy IPA called "Dyn-o-mite") Good lobster bisque. Jaegerschnitzel okay, but mushroom gravy was too heavy and made crispy fried pork soggy. Mexican-inspired salad was very good."

  • "We went to Iron Hill for lunch and the hostess and server were wonderful. We were however, also sitting very close to the kitchen and could hear the chefs yelling. Other that that, it was fabulous and wonderful food. It was the first time at this location and we would go back."

  • "This is an easy one - I normally love Iron Hill, but this one had angry staff, not attentive to anyone, and my food was cold. It took 3 hours to eat at a place that should take maybe 1 hour. Will I be back? NO."

  • "The beers are really good and the menu is full. The restaurant is very modern and large, but can fill up quickly. However, on a Thurs night, the place was empty for dinner (go figure). Nothing spectacular, but not a disappointment for any reason. Enjoy it!"

  • "We go here at least once a month. The food is wonderful and you can get a growler of their craft beer to take home and enjoy later. It can be a bit loud on a friday and saturday night, but I think that adds to the whole experience. "

  • "At Iron Hill, their forte is comfort food done well. The service has always been spot on, timely, efficient and friendly. Because they have a class operation, they will always be fairly busy, and if there is a knock against Iron Hill, it would be that the place is not where you would go for quiet, relaxed dining. Go there expecting a lively atmosphere. Now, the food: this time we split wings, less sauce than most places, so you could actually taste the chicken on the wing. I had the fish and chips, which were great, as usual. My spouse had the Jaegerschnitzel, which she enjoyed as well. I also had a margarita which was too sweet for my taste, however, many restaurants using a margarita mix have similarly cloyingly sweet margaritas. "

  • "My husband and I were both hungry for burgers on Saturday and decided to head over to Iron Hill. It's celebrating May as Burger Month. Even though it was May 17th, and the burger of the day sounded delicious, I read the description of May 16th, for the Arc de Triomphe with bacon-onion jam, baby arugula and roquefort. The kitchen still had the ingredients and made one for me. It was outrageously delicious - truly one of the best burgers I've ever eaten. His burger was excellent, as well, with salsa and cheddar. As always, the staff is friendly and welcoming. "

  • "This was one of the best dining experiences my wife & I have had in a long time. At first glance, this place looks like another run-of-the-mill brewpub, but it far exceeded our expectations. Even if you are not a micro brew fan (which we are), the food itself is a reason to come. But of course, the beer is fantastic! The servers are knowledgeable in what to pair with your food in order to enhance your dining experience. Even on a busy Saturday night, we were made to feel like the only people in the place. Would definitely recommend to any "foodie" and/or beer "geek"."

  • "There are many restaurants in Lancaster but this is the place we return to frequently. So easy to drive to, parking is convenient, the wait staff is outstanding, the food has always been excellent and reasonably priced. I never feel rushed to make room for other diners and have always been treated with warmness and professionalism. And, by the way, I made reservations on-line for the first time last Saturday, and found your sight to be so easy to use. I'll be back!"
