Visiting the University so read other reviews and decked to give it a try. Lived up to everything that was said. Food was very good, and the vibe was what you would expect. The menu was very diverse and had almost anything you could want and since my family is picky I knew this would be perfect.

Good food and beverage as the crab cake dinner was good but the Catfish special came to the table as fried catfish. Kind of disappointed the menu did not note fried catfish.

We went for Easter lunch and my food order was just average. The appetizers were wonderful, and the brunch drink specials were good. And our server, Austin, was great. He was informative, patient, and checked in just the right amount of times. I joined their frequent diner program too! The others in my party enjoyed their food orders so I'm willing to go back and try it again.

Food was REALLY good and they have a great menu. The fact that the waitress gave a sales pitch about joining their loyalty club, however, was a total turn off for me. That kind of ruined the entire experience for me.

We had a very large group to accommodate about 30 people, kids and adults, who had just come from a long day of hockey, so a few of us made res on OpenTable for 10 people each which was taken for 8:15pm. A hostess called us to tell us that they did not have the availability and that OpenTable was supposed to cut off res at 4pm, and that it would be about a 1/2 hour wait. We made the reservations at 6:30. When we got to the restaurant, the hostess was exceptionally gracious and tried her best to accommodate us. We were seated within 15- 20 minutes with very on-hand waiters and waitresses. We were very impressed and appreciate the outstanding service. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Stopped off for a late lunch on St Patrick's day in this college town. Great place for parents of students. I'm always interested in craft beers and this place did not disappoint. Good selection including several IPA's. Seafood Bisque was tremendous.

Had a great beer and the crab cake dinner. Crab cakes were good size and crispy on the outside. Could have been a little meatier (too much filler) and could have been hotter.

The service was once again on point. Happy to bite my lip through the slight noise coming from the kids running around just to get the amazing service (and great food and top notch beer). Will be back again, but maybe make the restaurant less kid friendly or stricter noise policy overall.

We visit Iron Hill in Newark several times a year. We love being members of the mug club. When completing my review, this has been the only time I have been disappointed at this location. We were seated in the back room, near the kitchen entrance. We were so close to the entrance, that my chair was bumped by the door as well as staff felt the need to excuse themselves as the entered through the kitchen door. It would be in the best interest of this establishment to do away with this table. I consistently felt as though I was in the way while celebrating Valentine's day with my family.

We liked the new menu with more options. Service was excellent and very helpful in understanding the new menu. The food was well prepared and very tasty. I thought the daily special cauliflower appetizer was very tasty but rather small for the price. The Brussels sprouts appetizer was excellent and plentiful. I enjoyed the fillet steak special and my guests said the steak salad and fish and chips were both very good. We'll be back.

Having to eat gluten-free can be challenging but Iron Hill Brewery not only supports gluten-free requests, they have a GF menu as well. Servers seem to pay attention to the Open Table description that advises the restaurant of special dietary issues -- a refreshing attitude!
