    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.

    The outdoor dinning was outstanding as well as the service we received. The food was served in a timely fashion and it was delicious. The beer menu gave a lot of choices. I recommend the Bruschetta appetizer, it was great! I will definitely recommend this restaurant to friends and family.

The food was delicious, the drinks refreshing, as always. My fiance and I come to this restaurant at least once a week. You can't go wrong at Iron Hill

    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.

    I went here with my family and my boyfriends family so there were 7 of us. They had the table ready for us on time and our waiter was really nice. The food was also really good, the only thing was I thought it took a little too long for the food to come out. Overall I was satisfied.

    My husband and I are Mug Clubbers, the program is King of the Hill now. We love to go for date night, sit in the bar and do appetizers and beer. The craft brews on tap are amazing! Two that we really like are Mahalo Apollo and Russian Imperial Stout. Our favorite apps are the egg roll sampler, the loaded nachos, and the Voodoo pizza. Our daughter was visiting from CA, so we took her on Sunday after church. She loved it.

    So, I have always heard that if you like Medium Rare burgers, and they don't come out Medium Rare, and you re-order them, and the STILL don't come out Medium Rare, its a good indication that something is "funky" with the meat. Meaning a lower grade of ground meat. Well, this was exactly the case during our dinner. The Manager was even the one who went back and had our burgers rushed. I've eaten here before (loved the Ribs), but the burgers? I'd steer clear of.

    Iron Hill Wilmington used to be my husbands and my go to restaurant for date night. We went right after church this past Sunday, after not having gone for about a year. As we sat their drinking our Dark Side out of mugs and enjoying the blue crab quesadilla, we both wondered why we hadn't been to Iron Hill for so long. After eating our entree of perfectly seared scallops with the creamiest fava bean risotto (daily special) we renewed our Mug Club/King of The Hill membership, and vowed to be regulars again. Love this place!

    The location is great (on the riverfront with a view of the water) parking is excellent (a plus for an urban environment) and the noise level was low, though the restaurant was busy. Caesar Salad was the lunch choice with grilled chicken breast. The salad was very pleasant, but the chicken breast was so over cooked, you needed your beverage to swallow (very dry...but not burnt). Service was adequate, though our server did not really check on us until it was obvious that we had finished our lunch and still patiently waiting for a refill of beverages. I will be back, and hoping that a better cook is on duty!!!

    I made my reservations however was told that they couldn't honor the time because they had large parties and I had made my reservations a half hour before I came. I just don't know why they wouldn't have blocked off the space if they were full or I don't know, call me to tell me that the time I had reserved wasn't available. So I had to wait a half hour to be seated with a squirmy toddler who was famished. I would've gone somewhere else had I known. The food was okay, nothing to go crazy about. Our server was the one bright light that night.

    We took our granddaughter here for a high school graduation treat. We all enjoyed the ambiance as well as the menu. There was something to appeal to everyone (4). The quantities were large enough to satisfy a teenager and there were not-so-large selections for the adults. The food was delivered promptly and looked appetizing. The beer selection was very good and our server was able to describe the nuances of several of the beers. The only downside was a glass of white St. Michelle Riesling that tasted flat and almost watered down. In spite of that, we will definitely go back.

    We came to Iron Hill for our anniversary lunch because we knew we would receive perfect service and food, and that's exactly what we got! My crabcake was delectable and hubby's Brewski Burger was done to perfection! We were greeted with anniversary greetings by the kindly host/hostess staff, and our server, Jaret, was attentive and friendly. The chef, Gerardo, sent out his best regards. The manager, Jordan, also stopped by with good wishes. I'm telling you, you can go to other restaurants if you want, but Iron Hill is unparalleled in the restaurant industry, no matter if you pay a fortune somewhere else.

    We were a table of 8, ordered multiple appetizers, everyone had a different entree and beer flavor. No one complained, everything was DELICIOUS! Esp the bread, it was so good I could've eaten 5 loafs. I usually don't like beer but I tried a light raspberry one - it was good, drinkable. There wasn't much left for take out, we ate just about everything. I have a sensitive stomach so I'm convinced the entire meal was high quality, I felt good afterward and was even in the mood for desert (which was also delicious)! None of their food bothered or felt heavy in my stomach, nor was it difficult to digest. I was surprised when I felt energized afterward, rather than feeling tired and over-filled. I'd go more often but its expensive! $$$
