The variety and craft brews were excellent. Wine selection was also good. However the New York steak did not have much flavor even though ordered medium rare. I expected better for the price.

We could find nothing negative with our dining experience with Iron Hill. We were seated at our reserved table immediately. Iron Hill was quite busy .... our server was attentive, gracious and did not rush the evening. The food was very tasty. We will definitely dine at Iron Hill in the near future.

Sat. nite and busy as could be, no surprise there! A little slow seating folks but otherwise the service was good, the ambience lively, food was excellent. We'd eat there again and that has to be the ultimate recommendation when all is said and done. Keep up the very good work in Lancaster. It appears, on the surface, you've got a good group of folks working as a team to the benefit of all.

This may easily become our favorite afyer show dining establishment. The Iron Hill brew I had reminded me quite strongly and favorably of a beer I enjoyed in Munich, Germany.

Food was excellent. I appreciated the large selection of gluten free items. Had the chicken sandwich on gluten free bun. The bun was tastier than most GF types, but the bottom part of it crumbled apart....still, it was better than most, so I didn't mind terribly. My friend who is very picky really enjoyed it also. Acoustics were poor though, making conversation somewhat difficult.

The very best turkey burger I have EVER had!!! So nice to get a lean turkey burger without grains and crap added! It was amazing and the bun was delish. Had sweet potato fries but they should be called sweet potato wedges...they were good but would have prefered thinner cut and crispier. Highly recommend making reservations in advance (we did!) and it was a great move; there was quite a wait.

Nice mid-way meeting spot for friends. Reliable food and menu -- always has something for everyone and usually everything is good to great. A few things are hit and miss. Artichoke dip is bland, but the marghertia pizza is great. Fries are always good. I'd call it very good pub food. My friends love the beer selection. If you sit in the bar, they do have sports on TV, so expect liveliness!

 (Orlando)·Dined on November 4, 2017

As always, the food (except dessert) was outstanding. Fried Mac/Cheese was served with an amazing spicy sauce. Guac and chips were great. Filet mignon was tender, cooked perfectly, and served with fabulous smashed potatoes. Chicken fried chicken was also cooked perfectly -- crispy on the outside with moist, tender white meat of chicken breast inside. Sadly, the desserts did not match the rest, so I took away a star for food. The creme brûlée was not a usual sweet custard -- it seemed more dense and flavorless. Not being a food critic, I can't pinpoint the problem -- kind of like whipped cream mixed with custard? But not sweet, except for the caramelized topping. And the apple crisp was not edible. Apples were not cooked enough, and it didn't appear there was any brown sugar/butter in the not-so-crispy topping. However, the ice cream accompanying the apple crisp was great and a huge portion, so we ate that.

This was our first visit to Iron Hill and our reservation was originally for the Frightening Feast. The evening before we found out it had been cancelled due to lack of participation we were a bit disappointed but kept reservation anyway to try the restaurant out. I am so glad we did we had a great time, great food, amazing beer!!!
I can’t even begin to express how happy I am with our visit.
Besides the food and beer being great our waitress was phenomenal. She took such great care of us and was so personable. I can’t wait to come back again!!!
Keep up the great work!!! This was most definitely a great experience for us!!!

We were in town for an afternoon wedding. We came across Iron Hill on opentable, looking for a light lunch beforehand. On our way I texted my daughter, who had eaten there, and she responded, "standard American fare". I must say it was above standard for us! My wife had the Salmon salad and I had the ahi tuna salad, and both were exceptional. And the service was so quick, I could not believe they could prepare them that fast. We each had a beer, and you should know that they brew everything on site. We both enjoyed ours very much. Sorry, I can't remember which beers we had, but ask your waitress for recommendations. Our waitress Alicia was very attentive, confident, and friendly.

Check it out, I don't think you will be disappointed.
