    On a nice late summer evening, this is great outdoor dining option. With no regular sea bass or ahi tuna on the menu, the fish specials are critical, and the wahoo was fantastic, prepared perfectly, and the presentation was fit for foodies, to use the open table criteria. And so is the catfish by the way, which is a regular on the menu. I cannot emphasize enough how spectacular these dishes were, we could not have done better.

    A great place with consistently great food. We had a guest with dietary restrictions and they were every accommodating and the orders all came as requested. You can't go wrong at IHB. Using Open Table eliminates waiting in long lines which is always nice. We will definitely make sure we go back and visit IHB.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/28/2014
    I would eat here more often but I feel the place is quite pricey for what you get. Serving sizes are a bit on the small side and the prices are a bit on the high side. I got soup, salad and ice tea, my husband got salad, meatloaf and one beer and our bill was $50. If I'm going to pay $50 for lunch, I want lobster tail!! I do love their food, but besides having to pay to park, their food is extremely overpriced in my opinion. Their servers were very attentive and friendly and the place was neat and clean. Had to feed a meter to park though.

    We had a business meeting scheduled and my only criticisms would be how tight the table was for six of us and the barley smell from the beer brewing (it was over powering and smelled like dog food). Service was good and food was good.

    We are always happy when we leave! Food is very good, mushroom soup and asparagus tempura are the best. My husband loves the beer selection with the bourbon porter being his favorite. The acoustics are poor, always seems loud but I ca live with it.

    Great, as always. They were waiting for us (table for 5), the food was very good - we even had dessert (rare!). Our reservation was for 7:00 & it was loud, but that was the soonest we could get there. If you want quieter, try 5:30. Consistently good food. Thanks!

    We had plans for a late lunch and unfortunately were very disappointed in the service. We ordered simple beverages after we first spoke to the waitress. 25 minutes later they showed up. Ordered our meals and had another major delay. Probably the kitchen this time. I am not sure what was going on toward the end of our stay. We wanted to order dessert, and never got a chance to do so. We just got the check.

    I'd been to Iron Hill several times with the family for dinner which is why I picked it for the business lunch that was this visit. The actual lunch menu is kind of limited, but I assume that you can order anything from the dinner menu for lunch. What surprised me was how quiet and peaceful the place was. Perfect for an earnest business discussion. Would have been nice to have a beer, but then I would have gotten nothing done all afternoon.

    We went for the Sunday roast beef dinner special. Included in the special was the house salad and a baked potato and vegetable (on this night, broccoli). We each ordered an ale from their list of current special offerings. Salad was OK -- nothing special. The potato and broccoli were cooked just right. Our server was very pleasant and attentive; service was prompt but we never felt rushed even though the place was packed and the waiting area full. (They must be doing something right!) Price was fair for the quantity and quality of the food. We've been here for the roast beef before and will be back again -- the food is always dependably good: not haute cuisine but everything very tasty.

    Food was good. I did not receive my soup and they also forgot my husband's salad. The manager came over later and asked if I still wanted the soup. I told him yes, I would take the soup since I had finished my meal - I never got it. They couldn't remove the salad from the bill because it came with the entree, so we had to take that home.

    We've been to many Iron Hill locations. All are good, this was good too. Looked like there were some new menu items, we tried the crispy brussel sprouts, and the beef flatbread--both very good. Also enjoyed their belgian witbier, a nice citrusy brew with hints of coriander in the finish. Very refreshing on a summer night. Service was excellent.

    The beer here is second to none. Make sure you always check the seasonal beers and food specials. They never disappoint. Don't forget they always have one or two award winning beers on tap. I suggest always booking ahead, it gets really busy on the weekends.

    We have visited here regularly over the past several years. In the last year, we have noticed a decline in both service and the quality of the food. The beer is still up to standards, but management needs to review the the lack of friendliness in service and the quality of the food in its preparation. One might suggest that if you want to visit Iron Hill, try one of their other locations for better service and better prepared food.

    We attended for a birthday dinner. Food was very good - all had seafood options and the cake brought for the birthday was rich, chocolatey, and delicious. The beer however was disappointing. We tried 7 different beers, only one of which had the well-rounded flavors that we have come to expect from microbrews. Iron Hill's beers were fairly tasteless and offered nothing new or interesting as compared to any commercial beer available in stores.

    Every aspect of the meal was great; from the cheesesteak egg rolls, to the burger, to the seasonal beer sampler, to the dessert. We left with our fair share of food in our stomachs and didn't regret it one bit. Our server was very personable and was prompt with service, as well. Easily the best restaurant I have yet to visit in the Media area!

    You can't go wrong with Iron Hill. Some of the best service in Media. Food is consistent and delicious. Their wings and nachos are a huge favorite of ours, but we always like their entrees. This is a good place to take a larger group because usually everyone can find something here to eat. Favorite Beer: Real Boy IPA. The staff is always very knowledgeable and courteous.
