    We go to Iron Hill a lot and this is the first time that the service just wasn't what it should have been. The waiter got our drinks and then never came back to the table until it was time to bring the check. Also, they missed our 2 orders of sweet potatoe fries so we had to ask a gentleman (not our waiter) to get them for us.

    Good beer, and decent menu. Had signature egg rolls- buffalo chicken and cheesesteak ones were good, but sausage one was not that great. Also had a flatbread pizza. Overall, good spot to grab a good brew, snack and people watch.

    Iron Hill Brewery in Lancaster is always an enjoyable night out. The seasonal Oktoberfest menu offers nice additions to the many great options in the regular menu. The restaurant has many tables to accommodate groups larger than 4.

    Always enjoy the food - wide variety - fresh ingredients. There is something on the menu for everyone - a cut above the other "chains" like Ruby Tuesday, TGI Fridays or Chile's. Specials are always good - very popular place, especially being across from F & M College.

    We have been to a few Iron Hill Brewery's now and I would say that our waiter here in Lancaster was the best. The food was delicious and the host staff even apologized for the long wait (3 minutes). They were already crowded and they were able to seat us right away. I would definitely recommend to go here.

    Met up with some friends and had a great lunch. Our host was very outgoing and a pleasure to speak with. Our server was equally engaging. Took the time to explain the menu and recommend some beer to taste. We had no trouble finding the restaurant, even though we had never been to that part of town before. And the same can be said of our friends, who were driving in from out-of-town. I just wish we lived closer so that we could frequent this location more often.

    The food was delicious! We really enjoyed sharing the sweet potato fries and sampling all of the sauces. I would also recommend the sweet potato soup, which is fantastic. The atmosphere was a little loud, but it would be the perfect place to go with friends or for a casual date night

    This is ,by far, one of the best restaurants in Lancaster and one of the best restaurants I've been to in a very long time. My server was excellent, courteous, and attentive and knowledgeable of the menu and the beers (I forget his name, but said he was 20 and recently started working there). He suggested I get the Grilled Ahi Tuna that was served with basmati rice in a wasabi butter soy sauce which was EXCELLENT and I also got a Pumpkin Ale. My friend got the Petite Filet Mignon which was tender and cooked to perfection and one of the Porter beers that was brewed in house. I would recommend this place to anyone! Will be returning very soon!

    I was visiting the area and I have dined here several times with my parents. We enjoyed all of the dishes we ordered. My only complaint is that all of the courses came out on top of one another. My dad had an appetizer on the table and the server dropped the soup a minute later and then immediately brought the salad. Yes, I know this isn't fine dining, but the table was only so large... Other than that, everything was great. Our server was very attentive, courteous, and knowledgeable.

    Used to love going here. The food and atmosphere is great. Service...not so great. Had to ask for a beer since it was not offered.(it's a brewery, right?). Same goes for bread. Call me old fashioned but I still think $75 is a lot of money for dinner for two. Good service should be part of the equation. I'm over Iron Hill...next.

    Amazing place, excellent fresh tasting brewery. The menu is just tasty by itself, very diverse and you can't bypass appetizers and small plates without picking at least 4-5 different plates. The food is amazing. You can't go to Lancaster and not eat here.
