  • "We gathered there for a birthday celebration, knowing the prices were too steep for just a "lets grab dinner" day. Food was very good, although the "brown" gravy on the Jaager Schnitzel was more tomato based than traditionally made (but, hey, my family is from Germany - I might be a little picky). Service was great. Well rounded menu-something for everyone. Would skip dessert - although very good (we ordered cheesecake, bread pudding, apple crisp and the chocolate cake) - very pricey for what you get. The chocolate cake was a tiny sliver and cost $8.95. Spend your money on the entrée; apps and desserts are overpriced for what you get."

  • "All good with the resturaunt. We love this place. I was trying to check my points acct and the web site didn't recognize my account number...I have an original card, ~ 4 yrs old. 1st time I ever tried to login. I entered the number under the scratch off patch. 459696 What's up? Am I outdated...?"

  • "3 of us dined at Iron Hill on a Friday night. We were seated within a few minutes of our reservation time, even though the place was very crowded. Beer selections were good. Our server was very nice, but new, so the service was not great, but she'll get better! She was eager to do a good job. Caesar salad was excellent. Ribs were excellent, seafood stew was really nice, and a pork chop special was really good. Creme Brulee and Bourbon Pecan Ice Cream were excellent. Apple Crisp had a unusual spice in it we couldn't figure out, but it was tasty. We'd eat there again, and recommend it."

  • "reservation was for daughter's 21st birthday. our server offered appropriate comments and congratulations to her throughout the evening which made her feel special. He was attentive but didn't hover or interfere with our family time. our appetizers and meals were very good. we each ordered creme brulee' (a family favorite) there was inconsistency in the preparation of this dessert. two were exceptional and one tasted like butter. because this was our 1st time at Iron Hill - my daughter thought that maybe her glass of wine was altering her taste - until I tasted her dish. WE did not make the server aware for 2 reasons - 1st, she finished the dish and 2nd the server "gifted" one of the desserts."

  • "Thank goodness I made a reservation. It was hopping in there but it was a Friday night. That is to be expected. We were seated pretty quickly and the whole experience overall was great. The menu has everything so you will be able to find something that fancies you. Must go place if you are in Newark."

  • "We had reservation for 7:15 and we're not sitted till 7:45. We could barely get in the door. There was no good place to wait. Service was a little slow. Lobster Mac-cheese was not hot, waitress did take it back. The next was really good."

  • "We had a wonderful dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday! Reserved a table for 8 online and I was pleasently surprised that they were ready for us. The service was very good as well as the main courses, but the appetizers we're over the top. I ordered a sampling of apps for the table, oysters, ahi tuna bites and lamb meat balls...they were sooo good that we ordered another round. Thank you, Roy"

  • "We had a 6:30 PM reservation in order to get to a movie at the theater in time. We told Kelsey upon arrival, and she was great at ensuring we were finished in time. She was courteous and efficient. We both ordered the crab cakes, which had a bit more filler than expected and were quite salty. Have eaten here before, and will return as it is solid. Just wouldn't get the crab cakes again."

  • "I was surprised by the variety of starters, my favorite way to graze. I can't say for sure why the hummus plate was so yummy, the chopped olives, fine feta, seeded cukes, tomato relish, warm pita? We couldn't get enough! And the red quinoa salad? Really wish we hadn't had it split for us, amazing."

  • "Food was excellent, as always, They had the heat on which was nice, Everything was perfect until the waitress "forgot" that the cost of the beer was included in the price of the Sunday Prime Time dinner entree. It got straightened out and all was fine."

  • "Was excited to try the new steak and stout Promo. However the steak was over priced for the quality of meat. It was really just "ok". Beer was good as always. I'm a regular customer and was disappointed."

  • "This was my 1st time there. Even on a week night there was a good crowd, but the staff seemed to handle it very well. The wait was not bad. The table service was very good and friendly. The food was very good from the appetizers, to the salads, dinners, and burgers. The beer was also good."

  • "Consistently great food and excellent beer selections. We have visited well over 30 times in past few years and Iron Hill remains the standard bearer for Main Street Newark, DE."

  • "Iron Hill often a good place to meet with others for food, fellowship, and a little business along the way. Makes the work to be done lighter & more enjoyable."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "Iron Hill is a long-time landmark on Main Street, with superior in-house brewed beers, excellent food, and a decent wine list. Our meal was no exception to Iron Hill's upstanding reputation. Blue Crab Quesadilas were a nice, interesting start. The Flank Steak was nearly fork-tender and prepraed exactly to request, and the Crispy Sea Bass was done to a perfect turn. Wrapping the meal with a Goat Cheese Panna Cotta was sinful luxury. If you like Stouts, do get to Iron Hill before they run out of their seasonal brew; Love Potion #9 - a chocolate stout that is a meal in its own right, and worth making a special trip to enjoy. Iron Hill is quite popular, so consider making reservations in advance."

  • "Good place to dine although we did have to wait 15-20 min past our original reservation time."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Its a busy restaurant, so even with reservations be prepared to wait at least 20 minutes to be seated. The bar is almost always full as well, so its hard to get a drink when waiting. Great food and relaxing place to eat, you just have to be patient waiting for your seat."

  • "My UD student daughter kept saying she'd heard such great things about the food here, and this visit we finally called ahead for a reservation. Not only was the food original and fantastic, the beer (which they brew) also was great, and could be ordered in 8 oz. sizes so you could try several and not get "drowned". Wonderful meal all around."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We ate at the restaurant during a brief visit to the town. The restaurant was very busy but the hostess proclaimed several times "don't worry, we will get you in before your reservation time". Normally I would not have ever expected this to happen but the group of hostesses was very convincing. Of course that didn't happen and unfortunately colored my view of the experience. They should be trained that creating an unrealistic expectation and disappointing someone is worse than just sticking to the likelihood that such a thing could not happen. Food items had run out apparently due to not anticipating a very busy Valentine's Day. Not informed by server until ordering."

  • "My wife and I have been to Iron Hill Brewery several times and the food and service have always been consistently good. Did I mention their great micro-brew beers??!!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Everything about Iron Hill is always impressive. The beer is phenomenal and they continuously cycle in new brews to keep it interesting. The food is always the amazing, and at a fairly reasonable (upper tier) price."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "...considering that this restaurant is called Iron Hill BREWERY, you would expect the beer and spirits to be remarkable, or at least adequate. Our dinner was nothing short of amazing, the restaurant itself is beautiful, and our serve Michael was fantastic. Our only disappointment was the booze. I had the Raspberry Wheat Beer, which tasted more like raspberry tinged water than an ale, and I ordered a Maker's Mark sour. The Sour was not mixed properly and I had to doctor it up with extra limes and lemons to make it palatable. My husband's beer was fine- I think he got the Vienna Red. Honestly, I will likely return to IHB because it had DELICIOUS food and hit on everything I like in a restaurant- I'll give the bar another chance."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "My husband and I went here for Valentine's Day and it was excellent. The menu is always impressive and they fluctuate their options based on the season. The food is a little on the pricey side but it's always good quality. This time we went they over salted our food just a bit which was disappointing. In the past this was not a problem."

  • "We (two couples) stopped at Iron Hill Brewery in Newark, DE on our way to a play at the U of Delaware. We had a great experience, with: prompt, friendly and professional service; excellent food; reasonable prices; and a comfortable surrounding that was conducive to conversations. Thanks for a great experience, and we will be back...."
