Fresh fish specials make all the difference. Great preparation and presentation of the snapper and salmon. Very reasonably priced overall. Everyone can get what they want from veggie burger to special entrees.

I've been here several times and every time I come the food is fantastic. The only thing I wish they had was a bigger entree menu, but other than that, it's a great place to eat!

I had the Moroccan salmon and once again the potatoes and broccoli were not hot. This seems to happen often at Iron Hill Other than that all was very good.

Beer selections were plentiful and generally very good. Service was outstanding. Ambiance was pretty cool. Food was perfectly average. I guess that's OK. Go there for the beer and the vibe.

Our server was Kathleen. She was a god-send. We arrived with our 7-yo in a foul mood, and threatening to ruin dinner for the 3-yo, 10-yo and my wife and I. Kathleen engaged him right away, got him giggling and saved the night. She did a great job as our server too. I'd hope she's there the next time we return.
Ther restaurant was quite busy, the Media Santa Parade having just concluded, but the front desk staff was friendly and efficient. Nice job by everyone. Iron Hill Media remains a favorite.

Iron Hill is a great go-to that has something for everyone. Great beer, good food and the addition of healthy menu options really helps. You can make a meal out of many appetizers and booking ahead assures a short wait.

I had excellent service from Matt. While I waited for my guest, Matt made sure I was comfortable. He listened to my preferences and suggested a great beer.

The food was wonderful - Kenneth Square Mushroom Soup and Grilled Salmon Salad.

Frequent the Iron Hill. Very much like the new layout, makes it feel like a Getman Oktoberfest tent. Food was good as usual, service was ok, they were busy so it could have been a tad better. Front desk staff was very accommodating and attentive. Will go back as i love the beers and ambiance

We love going here for the burgers. Somehow their burgers are the best-tasting anywhere. Also like that you can choose a small side salad instead of fries. I started with a cup of the Kennet Square mushroom soup and it was so delicious I wanted to lick the bowl - maybe its because of the truffle oil they add. Amazing.

Congratulations to Iron Hill on having such a popular restaurant. My advice to everyone is to stay away on Saturday. We had a 6:45 reservation. We arrived early and were not seated until 7:10. The waiting area was so over-crowded. The staff had no idea what to do. They kept walking around staring at their iPads. No one told us they were running late. No one apologized. The reastaurant was overcrowded and quite frankly a mess. It is usually nice, but they could not handle the Saturday crowd.

Grilled cheese came out burnt. When we asked how they can even send this out all they were able to do was apologize. They did bring out a new grilled cheese that was not black. Then my filet came out was was rare not medium rare. They just can't seem to get it right, ever. We keep trying. Won't ever go there again.

The seafood chowder special was indeed special. For that alone, highest marks. Fantastic taste and consistency, just right amount of a kick. I thought I liked the Brett IPA (née saison) enough to order the mug, but don’t think I would order again. Plenty of room for four in a booth, that makes a big difference. Overall positive experience.

We have dined at Iron Hill Brewery several times. This was our first time on a Saturday night, and it was hopping. Made reservations for 5:30 and we were seated pretty close to that time. Service was a little slow, but understandable since it was packed, but our server was good and very friendly. Food was delicious as always, lots of choices to please everyone. Beer selection certainly pleased hubby, and I was able to find a beer I liked also....the waitress brought me some samples to try. All in all a good experience. We will go back!

The service and food have noticeably declined in the last 6-8 months. The kitchen staff was short handed and it reflected itself in both the service, which was slow, and the food which missed the mark.
