They were slammed. The food was very good. The service was average. It was VERY loud. It was difficult to hear our waitress when we asked questions about the menu. You could not hear the background music.
We visited the Iron Hill Brewery in Hershey for lunch and had a wonderful experience. So when we spent the night in Lancaster, we were excited to learn that there was an Iron Hill nearby and so we made reservations. This was our first time in that particular area so we thought the building itself was nice and the parking lot was super convenient.
Inside was a whole different story. The place had a long wait and the whole restaurant looked as if a bomb went off. There were kids screaming, food and paper all on the floors. My husband and I thought from the door about leaving but we continued on. We had a reservation but still waited 10 minutes to be seated. We sat next to the brewery room which was cool to see. If that table wasn’t near that, we’d be disappointed for it felt like a corner with the smallest table. The room was loud as well which made date night feel not romantic. Our server greeted us right away but was really anxious to take our order. He asked us if we were ready before we opened our menus. My husband ordered a mixed drink and I settled for an Arnold Palmer. We had calamari and fries for an appetizer, both were delicious. I asked the server for his recommendation for a meal and he said the schnitzel was fabulous. I couldn’t disagree more. Although my husbands crab cakes were divine, my schnitzel was flavorless, bland and super chewy. The noodles it came with were if not more bland. I was disappointed. We decided to cut the night short, skip dessert and head elsewhere.
I honestly don’t know if I’d return based on this experience. It was a terrible meal with terrible atmosphere. Avoid if you are trying to enjoy a date night.
The food was good, we had typical bar type food. Our waitress was good, but not an excellent one. She wasn't very outgoing, never mentioned any specials. Maybe just an off night for her?
Great date night spot, good food and drinks.
First time for us but we will be back!
Nice atmosphere and great food-loved the appatizers
The food was outstanding. We had the cheese steak egg rolls for an appetizer and they were the best I’ve ever eaten anywhere. We also had the Steak medallions with crab cake and the Ribeye both cooked perfectly and delicious. Definitely will be back and definitely would recommend!
Our group of 4 all had the Valentine's Day Special salmon and thought it was very good
Great value for the special price
I cannot think of enough kind things to say about Iron Hill. The food was, as usual, fantastic. Our server, Amanda, was friendly, helpful, and a real joy. She was able to guide us through the experience with real charm. The noise level was a bit high, but that did not deleteriously affect our dining. We will be going back soon.
A great restaurant for a romantic Valentine's Day dinner. Food was great and beer paired well as per suggestions by wait staff.
EXCELLENT FOOD - AND VALUE.....LITTLE LOUD FOR ME, BUT THAT'S ME - SHOULD HAVE REQUESTED A BOOTH....STILL A GREAT MEAL AND EVENING...BRANDON OUR SERVER WAS
The food and service was great. It was a little noisy but that is to be expected with that many people.
We enjoyed the Valentine’s Day special, for the entree- Ahi Tuna, shrimp flatbread appetizer and the chocolate cheesecake desert. The ahi was perfection and presented nicely. We had a very nice experience and if back in town, will consider coming back without hesitation.
Nice Valentine's day meal with good friends. Food was wonderful, very tasty and cooked perfectly. Service was great. Valentine's day special meal was a good value. Iron Hill's beer is great.
Very good! We went for Valentine’s Day. Our only complaint was the nachos (our appetizer), they were not our favorite, the cheese was fairly flavorless. But we got NY Strips & they were divine! Perfectly cooked and seasoned. The dessert was also decent. A little over priced, but we were very satisfied with the service and the experience. If money was not an issue, I’m sure we’d be back!
Everything was a good experience except for the server. Not very pleasant or social, but everyone can have a bad day. But the gentleman running around clearing tables was great, possible manager. Being aware of the industry, you as a server should never walk by a table and ignore an empty plate, whether it's your table or not.
We were in Lancaster for my Wife to get her nails done at Nail Bar in
Chelsea square on Manheim Pike for her 40th birthday, and we made
the reservation for Iron Hill for a Valentine's Day Lunch .
We go to Iron Hill once a month And its Always Exceptional- in All aspects.
We had a reservation for 6pm did not get seated till 6:20pm. Tables were all crowded together. Not a place to go for Valentine’s Day. Food was good. Parking was difficult.
I reserved for Business Meeting with important client. Food and service was terrible. Beef tenderloin was way undercooked and full of gristle. Person waiting tables was inattentive. Overall huge disappointment.
The items came out with so much space in between that we didnt eat together and parts of each meal arrived after we were done. The food was cold and not cooked enough. One person felt sick after.
WE had a large group and just ordered a bunch of appetizers. The food was good and our server was great!
We enjoy eating here. Always great food and service.
KOH member. My favorite restaurant. Service was outstanding!
Whenever my wife and I travel to Lancaster, we like to go to Iron Hill Brewery. The service, food, and beer are outstanding. The ambience is great, though it can be very noisy on a busy weekend night. My wife had the salmon and I had the Brewski burger; both were delicious!
Very disappointed in the size of the side of coleslaw. The taste was Very Bland! The turkey burger was delicious.
The food was exceptional and our server was attentive to our needs. We will definitely eat there again.
We generally love Iron Hill! The only thing that has occasionally been hit or miss has been the service. Most of the servers are excellent but there is the occasional one that kind of sours the experience.
Both of us had the filet medallions- 2 small medallions + a ton of orzo- thought it was pricey for what we got , tasty but pricey.
On busy days (Friday and Saturdays) I suggest doing an reservation. If you are part of a large party, do a reservation and also do call head seating. The people up front are pretty bad at gauging how long the wait will be. Everything else was great. The food was amazing
Service was slow; room was noisy
Very good food and beyond friendly service.
Sweet potato fries were awesome. All 3 Porters were excellent. Medallions and pork cutlets were very delicious.
The staff and food were fantastic
I LOVE your restaurant and your beers. I’m a manager of a craft beer bar so I’m always out looking for great beers to try and you never disappoint. I brought my mom in for dinner as a late Christmas present. It was her first time there and everything was perfect. Our server Noel was fantastic. The food was fantastic. Everything was great! Keep it up
Celebrated birthday. Even though we had a reservation, we were placed near bathroom and back kitchen making for more traffic. Was disappointed when we saw multiple large style booths that would have accommodated us and made for a much more enjoyable evening
Fish tacos were great! Also enjoyed the amber house beer.
The food was delicious and service very good! We will be back!
I really enjoyed Iron Hill Brewery. The beers were great and they have a great selection for dinner that goes beyond typical pub grub. Enjoyed the soup, thai wraps for starters and the Pub Burger was absolutely delicious.
Everyone was very pleasant and welcoming...the food was very good as well! We were shocked that it was packed due to the weather but after the full experience I understand why it was full😊 Definitely will be going back
Great food and great atmosphere! Our server was really good. My Reuben was fantastic
