Diner Reviews
  • "The reservation section (what seemed like it was) of the restaurant is not as nice as the other dining sections. It also seemed like we were seated in the kid/family section; there were four tables around us with groups of children and some of the children were loud and disruptive towards the end of our meal. We made the reservation for my husband's birthday and wanted it to be special (at it was) but being placed in the kids section was a bit of a let down. Most of the kids were fine but toward the end of our dinner a family came with a screaming child."

  • "After a long day of college visits, starving is an understatement. My child absolutely loved U of Delaware, so we thought we would check out Main Street and see what it had to offer (thinking we might be spending the next four years visiting). We choose Iron Hill brewery (among many restaurants) and were not disappointed. We are foodies and enjoy a good meal as well as my husband brews his own beer so we gave it a try. Everything was excellent, we ordered the Pot Pie, Kennett square Burger, House smoked Pork sandwich, Mac and Cheese and Buffalo Chicken Spring Rolls. My husband had the DerKaiser Kolsch beer, also recommended."

  • "We were here for a graduation dinner, unfortunately the graduation ran late and by the time we arrived the kitchen was closed for making dinners. That was very disappointing, but we were able to get a bunch of appetizers, not the same but the food was still good. Service was great."

  • "We had a great Father's Day dinner here as requested by dad. The kids loved the dan dan noodle starter and thought it would make a good entrée. Everyone got to choose so we had pizza, seafood pot pie, fish and chips. Delicious. Even though it was busy, it didn't take long for our meals."

  • "This is a great place to go for fresh food and if you like beer, has the freshest beer on tap. The Sunday Prime Rib Special is a must try if you haven't yet tried. There are also great burgers and appetizers on the menu. Can't wait to try other dishes on the menu!"

  • "We gathered 10 family members to help celebrate my parent's 60th wedding anniversary. The food was fantastic and everyone had a wonderful time. The only night we could gather everyone was on a Saturday night, it would have been more ideal to go on a week night so we could hear all conversations. Not the restaurant's fault, Saturday is a busy night for them. We just played musical chairs and moved around to talk and hear each other. My parents wanted a good meal with their immediate family sharing it with them and the got what they wanted. They were very happy."

  • "The service was great! We had a large table and everything came out perfect, even the special requests. We had lunch there so the noise level was also good. Parking was in the back but I could see that being a problem during busy times."

  • "Our server was late to grab our first drink order. We were greeted by the GM who tried to help him but it didn't matter. The server never checked on us other than to take our plates. Overall bad experience with overpriced food. "

  • "Our family came here for lunch after our daughter's graduation. The food was good. The wait staff was very attentive and helpful. The price was right. The only thing I didn't like was that we were seated next to a little party for two toddlers, and it was very noisy for us. There were lots of places to sit, so not sure why that spot was selected for us."

  • "I originally made a reservation for 13, but by the time the restaurant called to confirm the reservation, we had grown to 20. They didn't even bat an eye and made the change without complaint. The night we arrived, the joint had already been in full swing with other parties, but they were able to sit us quickly, and had the most wonderful and attentive server help us out. Drinks and food were delivered quickly and without error. And the food was spectacular, though some of the plates were smaller than I would have expected for the price."

  • "great beers. great salmon and pizza. I would love to see a whole wheat crust, though! Although - the malted crust is good! Very good service! We had a birthday cookie for out friend - the server took care of it for us and brought it at the end with a lit candle!"

  • "We wanted to go out on Mother's Day, so that I wouldn't have to cook. We were nervous that every where would be over crowded and there would be long waits. I decided to make reservations for the Iron Hill Brewery and was not disappointed. We were seated promptly at our reservation time, in a nice size booth. The manager came over and greeted us. Our server was excellent. She never tried to rush us and was always there when we needed something. We never had to ask to order or for our check, her timing was perfect. The food was amazing! The kids menu is the best out of anywhere we have ever eaten, literally over 20 choices. My picky 3 year old cleaned his plate! The home brewed beer and root beer was also excellent. We will be back!"

  • "We had a very nice lunch on Mother's Day. The waiter was very nice and very attentive. We shared plates and orders sandwiches also. 3 out of 4 were spot on. My daughter ordered 1/2 a rack of ribs and was very disappointed. She only ate 1 and said it was all fat. Thank goodness she filled up on the shared plates prior to her meal. We will come back but for more of an appetizer/shared plate type meal not an entree. Thank you Karen"

  • "I'm a foodie who recently relocated to DE, and boy am I missing good dining! This place offers the most bland food that is so lacking in flavor and creativity it leaves you wondering what you just ate. The prices do not match the dishes at all. There is no complexity in flavor at all- think butter, salt & maybe some garlic for EVERYTHING! The best dish was the roasted brussel sprouts (Yup! w/ butter & salt). Our waiter was friendly but two of us received different dishes from what we'd ordered. When one person insisted on getting the original order, it took them more than 20 mins to prepare it. The manager did stop over to apologize and removed it from the bill but we would have preferred to have our entire party eating at the same time."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We all left feeling that Iron Hill is overpriced for the service level and quality of food. Just not a lot of attention to detail here. Just one example my two kids each got kids meals that literally came with 5 french fries each. Not big fries either but normal sized french fries. The only thing good here and worth the money you pay is the home made pizza. "

  • "This is one of our favorite local restaurants. We specifically enjoy the buffalo chicken egg rolls and Mesclun salad. The Salmon was prepared perfectly "

  • "our waiter was swamped (see below). Host staff could have helped with drinks..... the people delivering the food could have asked if we needed additional items. they dropped the food and immediately left. why would you bring burgers and fries and not bring ketchup.....??"

  • "I made a reservation requesting a round table and a strawberry cheese cake for a birthday celebration. Result: No round table, no birthday cheese cake for the table. In terms of food, I can only speak for me an my husband, and it was terrible. Since we were hosting, I think everyone else was too polite to mention a food problem. At over twenty dollars, my wife got 5 over salty scallops and a mound of risotto that was so pasty that it was inedible. My meal wasn't any better. As you can imagine, I will not be back."

  • "ordered a glass of wine. it came in glass completely caked in baked food flecks. shocked that waitress didn't feel them when she set glass down - it was covered. I sent it back and watched it just poured into a different glass. the new glass wasn't sparkling but it didn't have food flecks all over it. then when the bread plates came, I was shocked that there was dried/dishwasher baked food on them too. waitress didn't seem particularly concerned - she laughed and promised to double check my entrée plate. lost appetite. I'm not a germaphobe but I was completely grossed out. "

  • "I did find this place on open table and based my selection on the ratings previous diners had and was not disappointed. I would highly recommend if you are looking for good meal in casual atmosphere. Would recommend reservation which I did and was seated promptly when I arrived. Service was great and food and beer even better."

  • "I have been here many times and this is the first that I had an issue with the food. Our entrees came too soon. We had not even finished our soup when they arrived. By the time we got to them it prime rib was cool, barely even warm. The server took the food back and they warmed up the meat but it was still far from ideal. The taste was good but not getting new fresh hot pieces of meat was somewhat disheartening. We will probably be back in hopes of a better experience. "
