    The food was excellent as always. Perfectly prepared and plated. My wife and I have come been coming here for over a decade and I can't recall a visit that we didn't get great service and this visit wasn't any different. Johnny was fantastic. Very attentive. But the real gem is the beer. Their recipes are always unique and full of flavor. Definitely worth a visit (or a hundred).

  • Disapointing Meal
    Badmeal
    Dined on 10/12/2014
    Been here a couple of times and went back reluctently for my daughter's birthday. They were happy with their salads and beer. I was not. Ordered off the "Octoberfest Menu" the schnitzel dish. What I got was a disgrace. Although the description was mouth watering, the meal was pathetic. Literally small amount of green beans, one table spoon of noodles, and two very very small pieces of chicken, one which looked broken apart. All of this with no salad, no bread for only $17.50!?!?!?!?!?! I won't be back and have told many people about it. If you want beer, go there,,if you want a good meal,,,there's 20 other good restaurants in Media. It also amazed me that after making the reservation for 6:30, we got seated at 6:50.

    Dined on 10/10/2014
    Our party of four had a reservation at 5:30 and lingered over appetizers, drinks, dinner until almost 9:00 pm. Our server was gracious, never indicating that it was a busy Friday evening and that another party could have been seated within our time frame. We tipped him generously for his graciousness - his name was Michael and he's a true gentleman.

    Okay for happy hour and bar food, but don't let the appearance of a restaurant fool you into thinking its more than a nice looking brewery. I could elaborate on the embarrassment of a meal presented to my wife and the excessive time it took the staff to correct it, but I believe my opening sentence says enough.

    Iron Hill is one of our favorite spots, for a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere, good, reasonably priced food, and great service! We were seated at a large round table, which made our group of 8 be able to talk all around the table. The noise can get loud, but we were in a back room, farther from the lively bar, which helped.

    This is a good time of the year for beer selection and menu options. The huhnerschnitzel is delicious. It has a genuine German taste with the noodles and haricots verts. Everything served at the right temperature, which three or four years ago was often an issue. Nice variety of German style beer. Only wish they would have had a cask conditioned ale, for first Friday of the month.

    We went here because we had seen a show at the Media Theater and wanted to eat somewhere close by. While the restaurant was buy, the noise level didn't intrude on our evening. The food was delicious. We especially enjoyed the Alsatian Flatbread. We hope that may become a menu staple in the future.

    The obvious attraction is the variety of in-house brewed beers. The staff are well educated in the specific varieties and can make solid recommendations based on your specific tastes. In addition, the selection of food is several pages long and never had a bad meal.

    Had a good meal here this past Saturday. Our appetizers and entrees were very good! My only complaint was dessert. Unfortunately they were out of the dessert special and I had to get the oatmeal cake. It was horrendous! Soooo dry and had no flavor. Stick to the other desserts.

    Known for its great beer selection, Iron Hill is a great gathering spot for a drink. Recently had dinner there and found the service to be very attentive but not overbearing. The food experience was mixed. My dinner partner was very pleased with his choice of local beer and beef dinner. The meat was perfectly cooked. However, we had ordered the mussels appetizer and were very disappointed to be served tiny mussels, the "meat" of which was smaller than a fingernail and mostly overcooked. I found the wine servings to be on the chintzy side. My fisherman's stew was adequate, though nothing extraordinary.

    Our waitress, Annette, was fantastic. The food was great. Two of us shared a salad before the main course, and the restaurant divided it for us on to two platters. Annette was sensitive to our needs but not too intrusive. After finishing and paying, we stayed a little while longer to chat, and nobody bothered us or seemed impatient that we should leave. The food was great and the price was right. This was a perfect place for five old friends to get together and catch up with each other.

    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.

    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.
