Service continues to decline
Harvest Root Vegetable Salad was the best restaurant salad I've ever had.
Menu is varied enough but predictable so that I have favorites but can always be adventurous and try something new.
I have been to other Iron Hill Breweries and have always had a positive experience. Service at the Chestnut Hill location was extremely slow and the restaurant was not clean. To top it off, we were given the wrong bill and then the wrong change! Horrible experience.
Logan was a great server, he was very polite and seemed very busy but didn’t effect the great service we received. Kudos to Longan *
My 30th birthday dinner was amazing thanks to Evan! My family and I were very happy!
The steak was delicious, the salmon seemed overcooked. Good overall.
It was very loud in the back room. It was too full of large parties.
We enjoyed dinner & drinks at Iron Hill ( Chestnut Hill ) .It has become popular spot, millennials, family friendly . It can be quite noisy,esp in the Bar area. So if want to have a conversation in your party, make reservation for the dining room ! The menu is varied, has full entrees and bar food. I found drinks( wine), little pricey....The wait staff are lovely and accommodating.
We love Iron Hill in Chestnut Hill. Ruth always greets us an old friends. Food never fails to please.
This is a very good Iron Hill Brewery location. I went there for lunch with my sons, and we enjoyed their appetizers (cheesteak rolls and flatbread pizzas). We also shared a good dessert. The service was friendly and efficient, and it is pleasant to sit on the high tops and watch some sports. It was a nice crowd, but not so full we could not hear each other. I enjoyed it and would recommend it for outings like mine.
Iron Hill is a safe bet. Food isn’t spectacular but it is solidly good. Wait staff is good. It is a good choice when you have kids. They also have options for different pallets and have some good GF options.
Our server was very pleasant and the food was fresh and amazing. Mushroom soup is my favorite, warmed me right up. I also had the fish tacos, although only came with two (large pieces of fried fish), i was still just full. The beer paired with our meals was tasteful as well. We will certainly return.
Server was very slow. Did not follow up throughout the meal.
Service was horrible. Had a 7:45 reservation and waited half an hour. Asked 3 times to be sat in a booth in the bar area, and the host continuously asked for my name again and stated she wrote down my request for bar area seating. After 30 min waiting, we went up to host and asked again when we would be seated and that we would just take first available. She once again asked for my name, and only then informed us the bar area was self seating... by this time half hour had passed and our actual table was ready in the dining area so we sat there. Not a great experience, especially with 2 hungry young kids. On top of the terrible service, the food was below average. Will not be returning.
Their food is excellent especially their soups. The Beers are also fantastic.
Evan did a great job even though he was really busy.
The service was fantastic! We were disappointed in our food this evening ... the presentation and flavor were off. The Sea Bass (Chef’s special) was bony, my “roasted” cauliflower was steamed cauliflower with a bit of char on it and our creme brûlée came with no garnish and not on a plate or anything - just a lonely ramekin. We eat here often so we definitely know the food and understand that NYE is busy ... but it was disappointing to say the least.
Salad swimming in oil and vinegar. Bisque ok. Took a long time to get food. Music loud and not comfortable for eating. Won’t be back soon.
We shared with our server what we didn't want on our sandwiches. When the food came out, it had exactly everything we requested not to have! The server didn't even notice...
It was ok. The server seemed to be rushing us along and didn’t let us know that the kitchen was closing early, but it was Christmas Eve.
The restaurant staff were completely overwhelmed by the crowd of people there two nights before Christmas. It took 20-plus minutes for our waitress to take our order, and then it took over one hour for our entrees to be served, and we only ordered a burger, a chicken sandwich, and a salad - nothing complicated. The burger was overdone and the salad was not as ordered. Iron Hill usually offers reliably decent food and service, but our experience there on December 23 was a mess. Our waitress was friendly and mildly apologetic, but it couldn’t make up for the rest of the meal.
I have been here numerous times however it was just mediocre this time. I would not recommend for special occasions.
We are two seniors who were placed in a noisy family room with eight screaming, running toddlers. My husband’s meager portion of etouffe was bland. The meal was topped off with pudding or un-torched creme brûlée covered in whipped cream, posing as the cheesecake I had ordered. Never again.
Perfect for groups and families. Highly recommended!
We came to this Iron Hill on a night that Chestnut Hill was having a special holiday event, and the restaurant was completely (and in my view inexplicably) unprepared for the crowds. We had a reservation and we were still told we'd have about a 30 minute wait for a table. The worst part is that the front of the house just wasn't managing things well at all. There was a line of people waiting to check in, and the hostess kept her back to the group while we all waited. Eventually (like 15 minutes in) the person at the front of the line decides to be more assertive and gets her attention. Every one of us in line then had to do the same...grab her attention and get her to help us. There were several others at the front, pretty much running around like chickens with their head's cut off. They made no eye contact with customers and, like the hostess, ignored people standing in line. Eventually a table opened up in the bar area and we took it. Our waitress was phenomenal, and we had a great meal. But the beginning of our meal was a disaster.
Great food! Nice friendly atmosphere! Great beer creations!
Consistently good meal and reasonable price.
Good nachos with crisp, not soggy chips, and well distributed toppings.
Wait service is always a bit slower than it seems necessary to get drinks on the table.
One observation - the portion size of the Naked Burger Salad seems smaller than before. Still good though.
Thé food was ok! The service was really bad. The level of disorganization was huge. I hoe they will survive the holidays.
Very crowded night due to Stag and Doe night in Chestnut Hill. But with reservations, we were taken right back. Dinner was wonderful and service was also very good.
Date Night success! We chose to sit in the bar area (it' our fave) and enjoy the holiday lights both inside and outside through the large glass windows. Our server was fantastic and she helped me choose between two of your limited grilled cheese offerings . . .delicious!!! Thanks for being out favorite neighborhood go-to place!
Food is excellent Drinks were great Ambiance is awesome Servers were friendly and caring, returned my burger because it was a little too cooked but the food is excellent Got a replacement burger and loved it Had a large group of 12 people and servers were very patient with us. Great place for a good time.
One entree never came out. My ribs were luke warm but tasted good. Two of the burgers were charred on the outside but internal was ok. Waitress was nice the whole evening and was trying. Management was not very prompt and not very confident. We were told the manager was coming and she would be there soon then a gentleman came over and was so soft spoken it was difficult to hear him. Don’t know if he was the manager or if the manager was someone else and just didn’t want to deal with the problem.
Good food and good beer with a great staff serving.
This is wonderful gathering place - full of warm ambiance. Wait staff is always very friendly and the food is always excellent. Their burgers are the very best.
Never brought my husband’s ice. He went to the bathroom to get water since no one came to the table. Salad was over spicy. Flatbread had very little topping.
We’ve had better service and food from there before.
Great time with friends. Wait staff attentive
Terrible service - our waitress forgot about us and the Manager ended up taking over after we waited roughly 45 minutes for our food. The food was OK but Iron Hill has definitely gotten away from what initially made them appealing.
I loved the atmosphere of the place as well as the service. The food didn’t take too long and was definitely worth the price we paid. The staff were all lovely and the playlist was excellent, both me and my date really enjoying the music choices. Overall had a great experience and would definitely recommend to a friend!
The table we were given was too tight making it somewhat uncomfortable for our party of 7 but all else was excellent!
