We had a great family night before venturing out onto the street for Stag and Doe night! Our service was wonderful - the server was SO friendly and kind. I had the Pot Pie and it was delicious!

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.

Generally delicious food - an off night, service-wise; the salmon filet on the salmon salad not worth the price. Overall, better time being anywhere with friends.

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!

The service was exceptional. I initially made a reservation for 8. An additional person showed up. Iron Hill Brewery quickly and easily made the accommodation for the extra guest. The waiter was gracious enough to even provide us with separate checks. Additionally, the food was exquisite. Everyone in my party enjoyed the different meals (ribs, crab cakes). My group and I will definitely be returning to Iron Hill Brewery.

There were four of us and we were seated immediately. It was a beautiful day so the outside seating was open but we choose sitting inside. Our very friendly waiter greeted us as soon as we were seated and took our drink order. After reviewing the menu he took our order. Everyone ordered something different from a burger, to a salad to a small chicken dinner plate. The food was served quickly and to everyone's liking. The whole atmosphere of the restaurant was extremely comfortable. We will definitely dine there again in the future.

As a first time patron of Iron Hill Brewery-Chestnut Hill I was impressed that my reservation for 6:45 pm I was promptly seated in a corner booth I had requested. It was a first date so I was hope for a little less energy so our conversation could be heard. Many times I had to ask my date what she had said. That notwithstanding, our server, Paul, was very attentive and exceeded my expectations.
The food was excellent and had a good presentation. I enjoyed the experience, but a little too noisy for a first date.
