Had chicken sliders which were tough and basically only filled my hunger void. Fries were cold. Very disappointing.

Great for a casual Valentine's day. We ordered from the $45 for two Valentine's special dinner. We both had the Ahhi Tuna entree which was delicious. This was a good deal, with one appetizer, two entrees and a shared dessert. The cheesecake was good, but a little small for two. Waitress was attentive and helpful. All in all, very nice.

Usually nachos are delicious, not tonight. Cheese was rubbery and waxy. My husband crab cakes were delicious. I ordered salad. It listed pistachio, and I think there was only one on there. Dressing was delicious. Our server was Sara. She was very good. We will return, I’m hoping it was just because it was Valentine’s Day and crowded.

The stuffed mushrooms were very good, cooked just right. The dish could have been improved with a drizzled sauce over it.
The main courses (beef and tuna) were very good, cooked rare as requested.
The chocolate desert was delicious. Only criticism was the graham pie crust was pretty hard.

I was there with a friend before a show at the Media Theater, and we enjoyed sharing the Valentines special. Our flatbread appetizer, salmon entrees and cheesecake dessert were all very good. Good value at $45 for the two of us. The special runs through the weekend.

Service is sooo slow. Sat for an hour before getting our entrees. Gave ourselves plenty of time because we had show tickets at Media theater. We would have been late otherwise. Food tasted like it was prepared and sitting too long under the warming lights. Not a good experience.

Perfect place for our business meeting and there were two among us that are vegans. The Head Chef took care to make sure all were taken care of!

Had to wait past our reservation time, about 10 minutes, but the food is very good, great beer selection, and our server Jack was great! Media has a good selection of restaurants but Iron Hill is a reliable staple.

Just OK. Food was just OK and not all that flavorful. We were a party of 6 adults and all were underwhelmed with the quality of the food. One dish, the teriyaki chicken was overcooked and lukewarm It was sent back. The manager did come by to apologize and offered to get someone a beer and then never returned! The craft beers were good. I think it's a good place for drinks. apps and maybe a burger.

Food was ok but overpriced. Our server would disappear for 30 minutes at a time and we wondered if she had quit or been fired. Environment was loud . Overall, a so-so experience. I don't feel the need for a return visit.

This is like the Holiday Inn of restaurants - no surprises, and that is a good thing. I did not have a beer, though I feel confidant that it too is satisfactory

Food was good, beer was good. We arrived 30 minutes early for our reservation and Host was SUPER accommodating and got us in with about a 10 minute wait--which was amazing! Service was pretty awful--BUT she was really sweet and one thing I liked--she didn't blame anyone else for the issues...9 out of 10 servers blame the kitchen, the bar, etc...Goes for her character--she knew she messed up and was 100% honest and even made a joke at her own expense later in the meal.

I ordered a flight and she brought me the correct beers, but barely 1oz in each glass--manager assured me it wouldn't be on the bill. She forgot my husband's beer--rather it came out 5 minutes after mine arrived when she remembered. Appetizers came out after our entrees arrived and at that point we sent them back since we had already started our entrees. Towards the end of the meal...she weirdly fed my daughter at one point....it was all really just all weird and just an okay night out--we always have a "date" night with our daughter once a week and would go back since we know and like Iron Hills in general...but there are so many good restaurants on the main strip in Media, we will probably just try one of those next time and skip Iron Hill.

I’ve been a long time member of the king of the hill membership program that they offer because my family and I really do love the food and drinks that they have to offer, however, tonight was without a doubt, the WORST experience I have ever had. I had reservations for 7pm, was seated within a couple of minutes and ordered an app with my drinks and it took 40 minutes for our app to come out and it was still undercooked and soggy when it finally did come out. We then waited another 30 minutes for our main entree and both of our meals were ice cold, wouldn’t even melt butter! So so disappointed. I will probably never be back to the Media location.

We have eaten here many times over the past few years. This birthday dinner for my husband was one of our best meals. The appetizers (hummus and pretzel) were delicious and the main courses were all devoured completely. My daughter enjoyed her crabcakes and I liked my tuna steak special. My husband had one of the specials also and liked it very much.

Parking is so bad, I almost canceled my reservation. As much as I like Iron Hill, it is highly doubtful I will go to the Media location ever again. Worst parking ever. It’s easier to park in Philly!!!!!

I honestly like this place for the ambience, food and beer selection. Our server Stephanie was great, food come really fast and cooked to perfection, good beer selection with recommended pairings. Can be noisy but you can’t get everything 😁

I had a reservation for a party of 7 for 3:45 and had to wait for 25 minutes for our table. Our server was so nice and she did a wonderful job, however, the food was not good at all. We had to send back flat prosecco to the bar and all of our food was under cooked by a lot! Our bill was $186 (which included only 2 glasses of wine and all ordered sandwiches) plus tip, which was generous because the server was great. I will not be returning to Iron Hill

I usually love this place, but I guess New Year's Eve was a mistake thinking we'd get out & have a decent experience. Place was jammed. Had reservations for a week & were still seated in the noisy bar area. This was the 1st flag. Having to ask for silverware/napkins 3x was ridiculous, especially after the food arrived.

Fish & chips were greasy, the fries were soggy. Kids liked the burger & OMG BLT. One beer, with 2 burgers, a fish N chips, and a BLT should not cost $72.

Will def rethink my allegiance to this place.

Our server seemed overwhelmed by her job, and it seemed impossible to get the attention of anyone to get us ketchup (she had cleared it with our appetizer), or more water. This made our experience much less pleasant. The food was as usual (good but not great), and the beer was terrific.

Service is good. Beer is great. But menu has gotten smaller in recent years along with annoying changes like they don’t provide salt and pepper unless you ask for it. We don’t go here as frequently due to the these changes.
