    Unfortunately, the staff made a decision to accommodate a group of over 30 teenagers. Probably not a good business decision since there was 0 alcohol served to that group. Me and my date had reservations and place our food order before 7:00 and did not get our entrees until well after 8:00. The staff was very apologetic and did accommodate us with some compensation. The entire situation was awkward and uncomfortable. Not sure how many other tables were affected? The wait staff acknowledged the problem but were powerless to provide any type of solution. Unfortunate for all involved except the teenage soccer team. Iron Hill needs to evaluate there policy on large groups. The most likely lost money do to the decision.

    Since I was the friend who organized and chose the venue for a long overdue get together with friends, I was so embarrassed by the outcome of the evening. We were seated reasonably quickly upon arrival at Iron Hill. Twenty minutes, yes, twenty minutes after being seated I went to the front desk to ask if they actually sat us a a table with a server. We finally had a server, chose cocktails and ordered a Nacho Platter to nibble on over cocktails. Two drinks were served after ten minute, the other two drinks were served after twenty minutes of ordering and the Nacho Platter had not shown up after a fifty-minute wait. I asked for the Manager before the appetizer arrived, told him we were leaving, refused to pay for the drinks and left the restaurant. Total time in our seats was 1:25. This was unacceptable! I promise, never to return again.

    I looked forward to the mussels appetizer, but it was disappointing. Since this was the first day of the Octoberfest special menu, I expected that the mussels would be plump and succulent. Only about five were so. The rest had been around too long and were somewhat wizened and dry. I suspect that the blame lies with the supplier. Since I am a "regular", it pains me to have to weigh in with a negative comment. However, the bratwurst was excellent.

    Haven't been here is a while, but in searching OT for a dinner spot, this caught my interest. I even browsed the menu and decided what I'd be getting. First disappointment - it was COLD in there and the ventilation system has a lot of air flowing. Had to move to a different table which was better, but not great. Second disappointment - the OT online menu shows a LOT of items that aren't on the printed menu (and can't be ordered off menu), including what I was planning to have. Third disappointment - portions seemed a bit undersized and were costlier than shown online. Worse still, my item (Ceasar with salmon) was $19 on the menu, but $22 on the bill. Didn't catch that until I was out the door. That said, my meal was tasty and satisfying. Service was very good.

    We had a reservation and arrived on time, but unfortunately we waited nearly 30 minutes to be seated. They told us the table was being cleared and cleaned. When they finally sat us it was at a table that had been empty the entire time. Speaking of the table, it was so sticky that no one was able to pick up a menu without peeling it off. But that wasn't until we received the menus which was 20 minutes after we sat down. Now we understand it's a Saturday evening, but not all the tables were full and there was plenty of space available. The beer arrived warm, and the food took quite some time to be delivered to the table. It had been a few years since we'd been here, but this will definitely be the last time.

    This restaurant has gone down hill in my opinion. The whole inside needs a facelift. The tables have a sticky film type feel to it. The seat had a rip in it and the walls had chipped paint and scuffs everywhere. The food was good. A little overpriced for what you were actually getting. Our server was nice but not overly attentive and forgot the silverware twice. Did enjoy the milkshake IPA beer.

    Great to have Iron Hill back on Open Table. Best experience here since pre-Pandemic. Our server was on top of everything. We sat outside, she made sure we had silverware and plates, she ran our KOTH account and confirmed the credits with final check, checked periodically on table if we needed another beer — all the little things that make it a complete experience. We ordered well and were pleased with our choices. The beer selection was good as well. Overall top marks.

    I specifically made a reservation but when we got there, they didn't have any place to put us but in the bar area. I spoke with the manager and she assured me that it was normal for this to happen. I asked her to make sure we were checked in on OpenTable, but she did not. I received an email later that evening saying I had missed my reservation, which was not true. I called and asked to speak with the manager. She remembered me and asked if she could send me some coupons to make up for it. I know a lot has changed and it hasn't been all good for this restaurant, but I was very disappointed in the experience. I appreciate the fact that they made an attempt to correct it, so I'll give them another shot. I have to say that their menu and food, while still good, seems to have suffered a bit. I wish them well and hope they can right what's wrong, though!

    We had a reservation and couldn’t even check in…we waited over 20 min and literally couldn’t event check in for our reservation so we left. It’s funny that we got a request for a review because we didn’t end up eating there. We normally love it but was disappointed when they couldn’t even check us in after 20 min.

    Well there was a kitchen mixup so our kids got their meals quickly while mom and dad waited an hour. But they comped the delayed food so all is good. Wish they offered a sample flight of their many different brews. Next time I'll ask, but it isn't offered on the menu.

    The service and the food was great. They should lower the lights as the evening progresses because it’s way way too bright in there as the sunset while dining inside but in general the quality of the food is a fantastic value in the draft beer is delicious

    You may think this stupid, but I always liked IHB because they carried PEPSI products. I am not a drinker so my beverage of choice is PEPSI. I VERY FREQUENT establishments that carry what I drink. Unfortunately coke products give me migraines. Last night was my last night patronizing IHB, had I not been in the company of others, I would have to went elsewhere's.

    Servers were doing their best with the volume of guests and were incredibly professional, courteous, and apologetic. I assume they are generally understaffed and specifically in the bar (high-tops) area. We shared the nachos, which were good, but not quite the same level of quality that they used to be. Iron Hill's nachos used to be the best around, in our opinion, but now they are still good - but we miss when they were great. We also shared a chicken sandwich and we are always pleased that they bring the food out to you pre-split. The sandwich and fries were very good. The server(s) were all kind and doing the best that they could given the circumstances and volume of customers. Great live music on this first Thursday. Still loyal to IHB.

    I'm a new Iron Hill Member. Well, the server was fantastic, the best! But.... First, I was told that the sign up fee of $20 would be credited on our next (2nd) visit. It was not. Second, 2 Pinot Grigio 9oz wines - $15 each, and they were certainly NOT 9oz pours. Beer is on the higher cost side, though not for the member 22oz mug. Entrees were ok, but with no included salad or breads, like most places. The menu is pretty sparse for a restaurant in Media. Third, a live band with drums started up at around 6:30, dinner time, which we weren't expecting & could barely hear each other talk, and we were seated in the dining area, not the bar area, where they were playing. They were good, but too early & too loud. Not at that time, on a Thurs. evening. Spoiled the quieter atmosphere. And for all of this, a $100 tab plus tip. 2 entrees, 2 wines, 2 beers. Not my favorite restaurant now.

    no beer list provided with the menus. service was a little slow (to order, to come around for refills, to deliver food, to bring the check). table was set with an extra chair (crowded) which we moved ourselves. some kind of mixup in table numbers because runners kept bringing food to our table that was meant for the table behind us. server was very nice, place wasn't loud or overcrowded, food was good and well-priced.

    Good food parking my just happened to go smoothly and server was pleasant friendly and checked on us often. Has never been to this location. Would def return for future dinners. Staff was pleasant. Bathrooms were clean. Prices reasonable and competitive. Only thing that did or meet my expectation level was that It was our birthdays so it would have been nice to have a nice dessert or surprise since the occasion was noted on the reservations.

    Iron Hill Media is a local favorite of ours. First are the servers...hands down they know their stuff from food to brews. We enjoy the seasonal and special occasion menu offerings and appreciate the pairings with their brews. Through Open Table I am always able to get a seat and normally in an area that I request due to my hearing impairment. Iron Hill Media will always be my local go-to!

    I met a girlfriend here for lunch. While the restaurant was rather empty, the music was super loud. We asked the waitress if it was possible to turn it down and she said nobody knew how. She seemed to say that it was louder than usual, but that there didn’t seem to be a way to adjust the volume. As for the food, I ordered the Brewben, which I found to be rather dry and lacking enough sauerkraut. I did enjoy the housemade chips and the Lodestone lager.

    The quality and value has gone down. The prices have increased for food and beer. Three in our party of six ordered burgers and the dishes arrived at the table with the buns cold. Not room temp, but actually cold. I think they must have come straight out of the fridge. One of the three burgers didn't come with a pickle (not the first time - same with our last visit at the beginning of the year). It's a shame because we've liked Iron Hill for the past 14 years we've been living in the area, but they're consistently inconsistent these days
