Food was good atmosphere was chill but the noise volume is a little loud in there. And I recommend requesting Jamie as your server she was awesome.

A bit confused by the entrance, went to the wrong door and ended up at a different restaurant. The brunch menu was OK. although my son got the Chicken and Waffles which he was looking forward to and the chicken was over fried and dried out to eat, was mostly breading really. The wait staff started out fine but then disappeared at the end. Had to flag someone else down to get our check, there were only 4 other table in the place and three servers so I'm not sure what happened there. Thought we would give it a try. A great place to probably drink beer but not the place for brunch.

Went there for the first time. The food was perfect! We thoroughly enjoyed it. I had the Mediterranean Cajun Chicken! WOW! Loved it! Portions were all huge too. Highly recommended!

It's a rustic bar connected to another restaurant. Not what we expected. Food and service were good but not worth the price. Go here for pub atmosphere, food, beer if that's your thing. Very different from Iron Hill Brewery, which we like very much.

Used to love this place. Many good appetizers gone. Had the old fashioned drink special and when ordered a second, they gave me a drink that looked nothing like it so I tasted it as waitress said she checked with bartender who said it was right. It wasn't. She never came back to ask me if I wanted something else. Manager stopped at table to see how everything was. Told him about drink and he said they tapped the wrong drink. No kidding, I knew that. He said they tapped the right one. I told him server never said anything. He said he'd tell her. She never came back as if informed. Food is mediocre. Guacamole which should be served with tacos is an upcharge of $2.00 that we weren't told about and waitress told my guest to see if it was on as even she couldn't see it. Waitress went back to kitchen and was told to come tell us it was on there. Beer draft selection poor from the past. Used to be our favorite spot, won't be coming back anytime soon. Thank you.

This was not our first visit and won’t be our last. The food is good. The service is good. The beer selection is good. The place is loud, but not too loud. A consistent, dependable, good place to have some comfort food and beer.

My friends and I had dinner there a few nights ago and the hostess and waiter were both welcoming, knowledgable and friendly. Our bill was $40 for 4 people and DELICIOUS! That was unheard of! I'll definitely be back.

The food was good and that is why we went there. The Brew Pub experience was a little too noisy for us and the service was okay. Lots of TVs, lots of people talking and it was difficult to carry on a normal conversation at our table.

We like this spot because of their extensive whiskey selection. I had an Elmer T Lee Single Barrel, which is rare and not often stocked in most whiskey bars. Definitely the highlight. The food was good, served hot and prepared just as we asked. We sat up on the 2nd floor outdoor patio, and the service was slow, for giving orders, checking in and getting the check. Nonetheless, better than average, and we’ll be back.

Amazing food! In addition to Iron Abbeys own food options, they are attached and work with the Brazilian steakhouse NaBrasa, so while my sister could get a great Cheesesteak and my fiancé got fabulous lobster Mac and cheese, you can also get a Tomahawk steak (for 2)!! Amazing waitress too!

Went there for Father’s Day brunch, there was a lot of energy in the pub with the Woman’s soccer team playing Chile. I’m looking forward to trying this pub for dinner.

Very nice happy hour drink specials, and great place to meet up with friends. Had a delicious cranberry walnut salad with chicken that I'd definately order again. Friends had salmon and fish n chips - all very good. Wait staff was excellent, too!

The food and drink were absolutely delicious, but the service was a little slow. We waited a long time in between for the waitress to come back, especially to get the check. Definitely worth coming back though.
