Timing of food coming to table was terrible. One person was done eating his meal when everyone else’s meal came out. A long night.

The beer was exceptional, and the bar staff who served us before we were seated were friendly, and offered some samples to help us decide what to order. We were seated at the time of our reservation in a very nice table, though very close to the the kitchen and a bit noisier than I would have wanted. Our order was taken and drinks and apps were brought quickly. The waiter was helpful when I asked about dairy in my entree, checked with the kitchen, and assured me that it was dairy free.
Three of our party of five got their meal in a reasonable amount of time, especially considering how busy the restaurant was. It took about five more minutes to get my meal, but when it arrived it was on a bun that looked like something that would have had milk in it. After asking again, to be sure, I was told, "yes, we're sorry, it has milk, in fact all of our rolls contain dairy." Luckily I hadn't eaten the bun, though I don't have an allergy, just a dairy intolerance. Four of us ate our meals (the food was very tasty), while waiting for my eldest daughter to get her food. (She urged us not to wait.) We inquired numerous times, and despite the fact that we were a mere 10 feet from the kitchen door, her entree didn't arrive until after the rest of us had finished. To quote the waiter, who was very frustrated, "I don't know where your food is, but you won't be paying for it."
The situation was so bad that even after giving my daughter her entree for free, they deducted an additional $40 from the bill. The fact that they recognized that we did not have a positive experience and reduced our bill was one of the redeeming things about the evening and makes me feel optimistic about returning. I will probably go again, for the beer especially, but I will need to be mindful when ordering food; the servers and even the managers did not seem to know which foods contain allergens and were not very careful about serving me food that could have caused a health problem for me.

We made a reservation and we were taking our table right on time. Our organization had arranged for a percentage of our check we donated to our organization and that was handled perfectly. Our waiter was personable and completely informed about our menu questions. Our food was served within a reasonable time and although one in our party did not receive his side dishes immediately, our waiter took care of that issue within minutes. Overall our experience was terrific

We love Iron Hill Brewery in Ardmore. Food is dependably good. Great beer choices. It's our default place to go. Reservations for Friday and Saturday nights are essential.

We've been to Iron Hill a bunch...this was the first time we had Jonathan for a server. HE IS THE BEST. He was talking TikTok with my daughter...he sang an incredible version of Happy Birthday to my son...he was funny but respectful with my elderly family members. Ask for him! (as for the food...well, the Brussels sprouts weren't as good as I've had there before...but everything else was fine...it's a nice easy family friendly go-to in the area)

We went for dinner and have had dinner at other Iron hill Brewery. Our server was disconnected from what they were doing. I order a bourbon on the rock and it came to me and all the ice had already melted. The cost of $28.00 for one glass of bourbon is a little extreme. Our dinner was not much better. I order a salad along with our friend who came with us. My salad came but my friends did not. I had to flag down our server to get her salad it came and she didn’t get any time to eat it because the entrées showed up three minutes later. I ordered the Shrimp and Sausage Étouffée the shrimp and sausage were over cooked and the rice was under cooked. My wife had the salmon and it was over cooked and dried.
For what it cost for the dinner we expected better. We will not recommend this place to any one.

My go to spot when dining with a small group of long time friends. We can always find great food and drinks. New to the Ardmore location - liked it much more than Media since it seemed more open.

Only issue was parking - but thankful the lot down the street was empty. Not many available handicapped spots but we were fine based on the time we got there.

Our waiter was amazing. Will definitely go back again.

We’d love to see a lower alcohol IPA more frequently. On this visit, there were seven IPAs available, including cans, and the lowest ABV was 6.4%.

Iron Hill Ardmore does not honor reservations. They put walk-ins on a wait list. When a patron (such as my party) who has a reservation shows up Iron Hill puts that party on the bottom of the existing wait list. We had a 6;15 reservation and walk in to the restaurant at 6:18 exactly. We were seated at at 6:43, and several walk in parties of the same size were seated ahead of us. Reservations are meaningless.

Once we were seated at 6:43, it was not until 8:10 that we were served our cocktails. It was not the server's fault at all, but he was over-burdened and could not adequately see to his assigned tables.

The food is mediocre. The service is terrible. The place is noisy, dark and rundown.

I didn’t like how many veggies were in chicken lettuce wrap should be more chicken. I loved the lobster flatbread. My bf loved the steak. There was an annoying fruit fly the whole time.

The service was horrible. The waiter came to the table to ask what drinks. Gave us our drinks with no straws. Had to wait until he came back for our dinner order to get straws. Dinner was served by someone else and we were almost done eating and in passing our table asked if dinner was okay. We did not want to stay for coffee and dessert and my husband had to ask him as he passed the table for a check.

Food was avg service was mediocre, had to ask for place settings, waited in excess of 10 minutes for drinks. Entrees came out while we still eating our appetizers and When the entrees were served, a member of our party who has dietary restrictions was not served her entree until I inquired about the whereabouts of her food.

We never got our free dessert or appetizer as promised via email. The waiter was very good, just didn't check on us enough. The food was really good. The bartenders at the bar tend to spend way much time at one end talking to people and ignoring the other end of the bar

The atmosphere was amazing, service impeccable, food delicious. The only thing that weirds me out is the amount of kids parents bring to a brewery. I can never understand that. Overall Iron Hill is one of the best places in Ardmore.

This location has been hit or miss. If you get a good server then you are in luck. During this visit the food lacked seasoning (no salt, etc.) which was disappointing.
