Great spot on the hill and in the warmer weather the window walls will be open. Parking is tough on the avenue but plenty of public lots within walking distance.

Food was good. Henry, our waiter was very thorough going over the menu. The only thing which made the evening difficult was that the Handicapped parking was behind the building and my friend had to walk around the block using her cane and being very careful since there was snow on the ground. A rear entrance near the Handicapped parking would have made much more sense, but we were told by the smokers that we had to walk around. We used the "emergency" exit at the rear when we left to avoid having to walk around the block to get back to the car.

We went SPECIFICALLY for King of the Hill Night, as last month's experience was SO AWESOME - however, our server never mentioned it. Despite that disappointment, as usual the food and atmosphere were terrific - it's our favorite neighborhood spot! But that was a real let down, after our server was so awesome during last month's KoTH.

My wife and i ate dinner here in new years day. Food and atmosphere were very nice. Can't say as much for the service. Our waiter was really very nice, but the restaurant wasn't that crowded while we were there. It took almost 10 minutes before he came over to greet us and get our drink order. Took him a long time to check on us after we got our food also. I wanted a second 22oz beer with my dinner but was almost done my sandwich before he came by to see if we needed anything so only got an 8oz beer for my refill instead. Also ordered a coffee with dessert which he forgot about. At least he forgot to outbid on our check too. 50/50 on whether we will go back.

Accommodating, pleasant, and delicious food. Great for large groups. They made us feel welcomed and cared for.

If there is any criticism, Parking is a bit hard for the elderly.

We will be back.

I brought 3 others to have dinner. Two were children and they had a good time. Even though it was crowded it was not out of hand. The food was good and served quickly. The help was very kind and making sure we had all we needed. I would make a reservation (as I did) if you were going for dinner. I would recommend it to all!

I begged but they didn't give the Louisiana Gumbo recipe. That's 5 or 6 times I have asked, but no dice. What, do they think I am going to set up a gumbo shop in competition?

Nice get-together with old friends for lunch. Mushroom soup and gumbo both great, as usual.
hamburgers very good. Very good fries.

Salads were also very nicely prepared and presented.

We even had dessert--2 ice creams!

We go to Iron Hill often. Food and service is always great. This Saturday there was a scallop entree on the specials menu. It was absolutely delicious. I wish they would return scallops to. the regular menu.

We have had many meals at Iron Hill, and each has been excellent. The menu items are invariably appealing and beautifully prepared. The beers are, of course, exceptional, but the house wines are also impressive. The waitress who served us on our last visit was first-rate - efficient, informative and very personable. Our dining experience was everything we could have desired.

It's a chain bar with food--it tends to be noisy because families come with children, some a bit young for restaurants. Everything is just fine--not wonderful, not terrible. I fits a niche for everyday dining in a neighborhood with a wide varied of options.

We went to the Harry Potter Festival in 2016 and wanted to try Iron Hill Brewery but it was way too busy. We prepared better in 2017 and made a lunch reservation. The food was delicious, the beers were great, the atmosphere was perfect (especially the Harry Potter themed decorations) and the service was excellent. Well worth the trip from Flemington, New Jersey. Will definitely come back to try more of the menu and drinks.

We were at Iron Hill during the Harry Potter festival in late October and loved it! The staff was great and super helpful, the food and drinks were very good and well priced, and the production value during the Harry Potter festival were top notch. It was our second year going to Iron Hill during the festival and we will definitely be going again next year!
