We went there for a family member’s birthday with a small child. The restaurant was very accommodating, the food was delicious and they readily made changes to their menu on a busy night.

Iron Hill has been a hit or miss in the past. This time was a total miss. We had a horrible server. She was all over the place and it wasn`t that crowded that she would be swamped with tables. Our chips and guac came out AFTER our dinner was already brought over. She managed to dump half the chips on the floor when she finally brought them over (mind you she wasn`t carrying anything else). Didn`t offer to bring more or anything. I got a burger that I could have made better myself. Typical potato bun (think Stroehmanns) not even toasted or grilled and defrosted patty with some veggies. Husband`s beer glass was dirty. They forgot to put the ice cream on the apple crisp. Just all over the place. Not in a hurry to go back to this location. We`ve had better experiences at the Chestnut Hill location.

The food was very good and the service was excellent. It did take about 15 minutes to get a table even though we had a reservation. We went on a Saturday night and the place was jam packed and really loud. The fish tacos were really good.

Disappointed in the new menu . Mushy falafel and soft fries. Bean Burger and Meat Loaf have been removed from the menu. This is our “go to” place by ourselves and with family. The service is always very good here and the manager was very accommodating

Have been dining at Iron Hill Brewery in North Wales, Chestnut Hill, Media and Wilmington for years. North Wales is our "home" restaurant. The menu is very varied and specials are creative. It's a favorite for everyone in a family with different food tastes. The staff has always been courteous and extremely helpful and accommodating. Very happy that IHB is located in our community.

Restaurant left the lunch menu in my menu. I was very disappointed that after I ordered the waitress came back and said that was from the lunch menu. Not my fault you left it in there for me to order off of!

Got seated next to some pretty loud (SCREAMING) kids as well. Wasn’t happy about that.

Good food.

We had eaten at this restaurant many times. But this time, it was a little different. We had to wait for our beverage refills for about 15 min. Food, about 30 min. I ordered the "daily special", a chicken dish and the staff told me they have "problems" cooking it, that's why i had to wait. My wife ordered the ahi tuna salad, the salad went out without the tuna. It "will be out when it is cooked", they told us. My son's steak was overcooked and too salty (we practically could scape off the salt).
Finally, the manager came out and apologized. He quickly slipped a "10 dollar comp" card to my wife and walked off. It was an insult.... We would not come back here anytime soon.

We really like going to iron hill and enjoy their food. We specifically requested "NO SALT" on our food and the waitress noted it specifically on the food request. My food was ok but wife's salmon on the salmon salad dish, was loaded with salt. We called it to our waitress attention, Chelsey and she immediately said she it would have the kitchen cook my wife a new salt free piece of salmon. Another lady brought back a new piece and it was 100% salt free. I think she may have been a manager. She said that their head chef discussed this issue with the cooks.

I felt they handled this problem efficiently and to my wife's satisfaction. I highly recommend Iron Hill as anything you order is going to taste very good and they treat customers very nice.

Our waitress Chelsey was extremely efficient in every way and provided great service.

The last 2 visits we had over the past 6 weeks, were AWFUL. Food good; service horrendous. Tonight we went in at 8 and it was 1/2 empty. Waiter was totally non-attentive and kitchen was awful slow. Asked waiter for side plates and condiments which never came. Won’t be back for a while.

Our severs led by Micayla were great! The food is always good. Thought the nachos were less plentiful than usual.
The hostesses were not friendly or attentive. We were told “if you want to sit right there you can seat yourself “. That was accompanied by a pointing finger and no menus.
We got our menus ourselves.

We have been to this Iron Hill location multiple times and every visit is great! The menu changes enough that there is always something new to try as well as the standards. Beer selection is also always changing to keep things fresh. If you find yourself becoming a repeat customer definitely join the King of the Hill rewards program. It pays for itself very quickly.

new menu options were great - we ordered appetizers to share and we loved the new burgers on the menu and each of us ordered a different side, the servers attended to all the details. Though the food was a little under-cooked for the temp we asked, we didn't send it back. Reserving a table with Open Table was easy, quick and made entering the restaurant a lot easier.

My overall experience with dining here was great. The only real downfall was the parking prior to entering the restaurant. There was no close parking AT ALL. Finally once I found some parking it was okay. When we entered the restaurant we were seated immediately. The server was very informative with the food/drink options. I even asked for a pairing for my meal, and which beer worked best, and he did a great job! (I had the crab cake sandwich with their red ale) Although the pricing was a little more expensive for two people, I thought it was appropriate for the occasional date night. I would highly recommend.

Food was delicious as always. Server was not rude, but didn’t engage. No smile, seemed a bit put off to have a large table with split checks. He did his job and nothing more.

Also, as a party of 8 being seated at 6pm, we were not allowed to get happy hour specials for drinks because we weren’t at the bar. It’s off putting to be charged full price just because we were actually HAVING A FULL DINNER and not just drinks apps.

We love dining at Iron Hill and although all of our servers have been very good, tonight our waiter was Jeff. Jeff was really a great waiter and he made tonight's meal extra special. It was a great dinner food wise and this is one of our special restaurants.

To anyone that reads this, please try Iron Hill.

3rd year in row we've been there for New Year's - pre going to a show. In & out in reasonable time, well situated to hit Sellersville to Phila. Good varied menu suits everyone taste. Those that drank (i was driving) enjoyed the beers.

Iron Hill is a great place for getting together with friends and family. We dine here at least once a week because the people are so nice and menu choices are varied and delicious. The company is expanding and we know we'll have a great dinner at whichever establishment we dine. Happy New Year to all!

We always enjoy Iron Hill Brewery North Wales. They are always accommodating in filling seating requests using Open Table. The Mushroom soup is super everywhere and so is the Calamari. We loved the Strawberry Salad and the Moroccan Salmon...another favorite of mine.
The waiter was delightfully attentive so he did receive a very nice tip. Definitely returning since this is one of our fav places!
