    The menu is extensive. In fact, it was hard to decide from so many choices. Crab cakes very good. Soups-especially mushroom-excellent! The directions we received from our hotel were not good, and we were a little uneasy driving though some areas of town. Also found it difficult to get back to a main road. Get specific directions when going.

    We came in with friends and had a delightful time eating and chatting. Our server never made us feel like we should hurry. Our men loved their burgers, I loved my chicken breast sandwich, and my friend loved her blackened catfish dinner. We had a wonderful, relaxed dinner with our friends. Our server was friendly, efficient and knowledgeable, which was good because my friend has a dairy allergy. Iron Hill is very careful about such things, and my friend likes to come here because she knows that and can relax and enjoy.

    My husband and I had a great meal at Iron Hill. The food and service were excellent! And everyone is so friendly, from the minute you step in the door. Iron Hill is a great place to bring the kids. Their $6.50 children's menu has a wide variety that includes healthy items, drink and dessert included! Just steps from the DE Children's Museum and Stratosphere Trampoline Park.

    I have dined here before and have always enjoyed myself. When I find myself in Wilmington - I have to make a visit to Iron Hill. The food is always first rate and moderately priced. The staff is cordial and helpful. After our group of four finished dinner, we were able to hang out for an additional 30 minutes or so to enjoy our conversation. We never felt rushed to leave. Love that:) Always a good time to be had at the Iron Hill.

    We had to increase the reservation from 7 to 9 and the restaurant accommodated the request and had sufficient wait staff that was excellent. The wait staff was attentive to our needs and always check to see if they could be helpful. There were 5 large groups in this area and they attended to all of them. My thanks to the restaurant.

    I had a delicious chicken breast and salad, and my friend was very happy with her Salmon and Arugula Salad. Our server, Morgan, was very caring and sensitive about my friend's dietary issues, and made sure everything was safe. Morgan is really terrific! We had a relaxing lunch and plan to make Iron Hill our favorite place to meet for lunch!

    We had reservations but we were given an option to seat ourselves if we wanted outdoor. We chose outdoor and it took a long time, about 10-15 mins for someone to merely acknowledge us and bring some water. I think they need improvement with better organization. We also opted for a drink from the full bar and both our appletini and margarita left more to be desired; both tasted weak. The view was lovely. The atmosphere was nice. The food was okay - we had their roasted chicken and teriyaki chicken. The latter, was ok. The roasted chicken was flavorful and good. Nothing spectacular. I am visiting Wilmington and would go back if there was nothing else to do/eat.

    We were greeted and had our drinks quickly. Ordered appetizers and food at the same time, apps came first with plenty of time to eat before meals arrived. All food was incredible (except Mac and cheese that comes with chile flat iron steak, it was really really bland). But after we got our food, our server disappeared. Two of us ordered more beer, never got it. By the time we saw him again, we were ready to go so we didn't ask for the beer again. He was really nice and polite but just disappeared. Kind of sucked to be at a brewery and not be able to refill our beer!

    Having dined at different locations of Iron Hill, we wanted to try the Riverfront. Service was great and atmosphere buzzy, even for Wed lunch. The kids' options were fantastic, but the same couldn't be said for adult's entrees. I had the pan-seared scallops and while the scallops were delicious, the 'risotto' was just plain white rice with peas and black pepper. I pride myself on cooking risottos and expected much more from a $25 entrée at a nice restaurant. My husband had crab cakes and while the cakes were wonderful, the sides let the dish down. I've never had an issue at the Newark Main St location so maybe it's a difference in chefs/locations

    I've never had anything outstanding at Iron Hill ( any location) and I've never had anything really poor either. Menu is a little to big for anything to be spectacular; they can't hone in on any one speciality. I like the raspberry beer and the cheesesteak eggrolls.

    This was not our first visit to Iron Hill Brewery. Whenever we've visited, we've found the food and service consistently good. My scallops were excellent and my table mates all enjoyed their dinners, too. If they could do something to dampen the sound, it would be even better. We enjoyed our dinner and look forward to our next visit.

    Brought a group of colleagues here for dinner and as always, the food and service were very reliable. I don't live in Wilmington anymore so there were some menu changes since my last visit and the menu offers something for everyone. There are so many choices of soups, small salads, appetizers, pizzas, entrees, sandwiches and dinner salads--I am sure I am leaving stuff out. Everyone seemed to enjoy their dinner. My chopped salad was great (and came with the adjustments I had requested). The Chicken Pot Pie was good but needed more seasoning and I suspect made from packaged veggies and frozen chicken but the crust was delicious. When I lived here, this was a frequent dining spot for us and I was glad to see it is still doing well.

    Our party if 6 arrived in two batches of three due to traffic- but the hostess and reservations people were quite accommodating and flexible. We were seated promptly- but never saw our server . then we got water and menus and waited for our party to arrive- it took FOREVER to get our food and the place was not that full. Our server didn't even come by to refill waters or explain the delay. The food was fine when it arrived- but we were late for the ball game due to the delay in the kitchen.

    The first thing they say to you is that Iron Hill is a brew pub first, and a restaurant second. The food was excellent so they are a great restaurant, but the beer was also excellent. If you are in the Wilmington area it is worth the trip to Iron Hill.
