Diner Reviews
  • "Food is top notch, a mix of familiarity with new ideas. Service was terrific. Overall a great place."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "My best friend and I went here for dinner for our birthdays. They forgot to bring my water out and we were not offered any bread. We had to ask for it. Other than that, the food and drinks were delicious!! I've been here a couple of times and I will be returning."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Like the title says, everything from the service to the food, was great! Our waiter was very polite and understood that some people in our party were late. Beer was also amazing!"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "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."

  • "had a wonderful dinner. Salmon and steak very good."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "This is the place for interesting beers and food that goes beyond usual pub food like fish and chips and burgers (although they have both). There is a fair selection of lower calorie options and salads."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "The staff is always wonderful and the food is great. We eat here more than we eat at home!"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Iron Hill is my new favorite in the Lancaster area. The food selection and quality was great, and the beer was fantastic. The Restaurant is perfect whether you are a couple looking for a night out, or with your family and/or friends."

  • "Good food, nice variety, and consistent service Pleasure dining here watermelon martini was recent favorite"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "We have been dining at Iron Hill since 1996 in Newark DE. We've visited several other of their locations, including the Lancaster location. Like all Iron Hill Breweries, Lancaster has been consistently great for service, and preparing perfectly delicious food."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "First time at this location and my girlfriend and I absolutely loved it. We came especially for the great selection of beers, but the food is nothing less than excellent. The crab cakes were delicious and we also shared a goat cheese pizza, which was great and makes us want to sample the other ones on the menu. As far as beer, I recommend trying the sampler because they have plenty of great choices. You can also sample any beer on the menu at your leisure. May be a little pricey for some, but definitely a great night out at iron hill!"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "My girlfriend and I went out on our first dinner date and we're glad it was at iron hill! The food was good and the wait time was short, even though the restaurant was crowded. And there was no problem getting our table."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "Our server very friendly and helpful. We (party of 4) everything including ale, appetizer, small plates, entree and dessert and enjoyed all. Special hit was spring roll sampler and gumbo. Would definitely go back."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Our order was incorrect from the appetizer on. We ordered nachos without onions, it had onions on it. I ordered a steak, it came out smothered in onions (which was not mentioned on the menu) and was extremely tough. I sent it back and got a burger which was ok. My wife ordered a pizza that came with the wrong toppings. They did replace it and got it right the second time. I think what ruined it for us most of all was the excessive noise of the place. We had to literally yell across the table at each other to be heard. This was a Friday night and it was busy but the acoustics in the place just bounce the noise all around. It was just a very unpleasant evening. We will not be going back."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "The service we had in Friday night was excellent! By making reservations our wait time was less than 10 minutes. The waiter who was very attentive. Wish I could remember his name."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Nice place and lots to choose from on the well written menu but food is nothing special. Servers are very nice and efficient. Management must be more focused on selling beer."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "We had a wonderful meal. Great service. In all it was a terrific night spent with 4 of my friends. We celebrated 3 birthdays and everone was pleased. Thanks for the brownie sundae!"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "We are from MN and really enjoyed your restaurant! The chicken and quinoa salad was excellent. We will be back!"
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "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
  • "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."
    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."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Not a bad restaurant ...just nothing special And they ran out of A1...we were told we had the last bottle"
    Dined on 6/19/2014

    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "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."

  • "First visit -- will return without a doubt. Fantastic food, friendly server. Glad we tried the restaurant!!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "Recently spent an evening w/friends catching up outdoors at Iron Hill. A perfect evening in every way.........service was timely, informative & efficient. Both beer & drinks were top shelf. All food was fresh and tasty."
