This was my first time at Iron Hill Brewery in Ardmore. Our waiter David, was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and all the beer pairings. I was fascinated at how much he knew. All the appetizers were very tasty. We had Korean bbq wings and A sweet and spicy shrimp dish. We had salmon for main entree and a great Reuben sandwich. Will be back!!

After we ordered, we expected our server to bring some small preliminary that we could munch on while we waited for the entrees. After about 20 minutes of nobody coming near the table, I finally found the waiter and asked for his help. A basket of bread arrived, which another diner (herself a baker) complained was at least a day old.

The food itself was good, but I might suggest not one tsp, but at least a Tbs of dressing to cover the small green salad, which was just limp and warm enough to be suspect.

We hadn't been to Iron Hill for several years, and were saddened to find it's former self had left town.

Food was exceptional. Meeting the manager who compensated us for the small tuna steak portion I received during the prior visit was great. He is quite friendly with wonderful table-side manners. The only challenge was the server who didn’t check in after serving us in the manner that we’re use to particularly since we opted to exchange the cheesecake originally ordered for the delicious malted bourbon pecan because the graham crust was hard and stuck to the small dish. (We actually had to flag him down twice - once for the dessert exchange and once for additional Thai Chile sauce) Overall a really good experience.

The Iron Hill Brewery in Ardmore has been a go-to spot for us since we discovered it a couple of years ago. Our son was in college at Haverford, and we appreciated the hours, the food selection, and welcoming and friendly service. We have gone after performances for appetizers and drinks, sat at the bar (to catch our Red Sox in the series) for local brews and bourbon (a large selection), and had casual dinners there.
This time, we made a large-party reservation to celebrate graduation! The range of food choices and the opportunity to sit in a smaller room together served us well. Our waitress was attentive, cheerful, and accommodating.
We highly recommend IHB/Ardmore, and we hope to return again when we visit.

We were celebrating burger month and wanted to grab the Armed Forces burger. On top of the good food and beer, the Ardmore Iron Hill is conveniently located and typically you can get seated quickly. We have been to a number of other Iron Hill locations and are always happy with the food, beer and service.

On visits to Ardmore, we've consistently sought out Iron Hill Brewery. Good portions, good food, good selection have been hallmarks. If our visit this past weekend had been our first, I doubt we would have returned for subsequent meals Service was attentive - no fault there. Appetizer was also good, but our respective meals disappointed. My teriyaki chicken was plated without rice and thus felt like a deficient meal. Three hearty eaters at our table did not finish their meals and sides. For the first time, Iron Hill felt ordinary, not a step above.

Exceptional service. Wonderful ambiance. Great tasting food. My husband ordered fish & chips. Fish was crisp & tasty but just a little greasy. I ordered the blackened tuna entree. Great tasting but the portion was extremely small (2 pieces of approximately 1.5 inches wide & 1.75 inches thick). I’m glad my husband who’s a moderate eater didn’t order it. His appetite would have longed for more. The portion seemed more appropriate for an appetizer than an entree.

My only negative is the actual greeting we received when we arrived. We had updated the Open Table reservation time to 6:30 instead of 6:45. It was about 6:25 and we were told we needed to wait until closed to our original 6:45. They had no record of the change, ti seems. We are both 78 years old and I though the persons at the desk could have been more courteous. Neither said she was sorry even it they were following some kind of protocol.

Not my first trip to this Iron Hill so you know I like the joint. It’s clean, the beverage selections are wide and varied, the food is good and the service is just fine. There were a lot of kids there on this visit so you see it’s family friendly as well.

Not a bad place at all.

We'll stick with the Chestnut Hill location; they have a better menu (even with seasonal changes), better quality of food, and better ambiance. Server and manager were great, however.

Always have a good meal when we come. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. We always get the same thing, naked burger salad and salmon salad. Cheese steak egg rolls are great as are the burgers. Our favorate servers are Hicham and Cole. They are the reason that we come back so often.

We were there about a month ago and had a great experience. We were very disappointed to learn the menu had just been reduced and several items deleted. We had a 7:30 reservation and were a bit late (our fault) but we weren’t seated until after 8pm. Our server was very nice but constantly tried to upsell or add-on. I’m not sure if this is a new Iron Hill strategy but we weren’t impressed.

The new menu is not as good as the old one. It is now more similar to any bar food rather than specialty brewery food.

The draw is the atmosphere and the exceptional service of Hicham. We look forward to seeing him when we come in. Food is consistent and bar atmosphere is good. Bussers are very good as well and work very hard. We are regulars to the establishment and intend to continue to come.
