We've enjoyed Iron Hill Brewery for more than 20 years, and we have never, ever, had a bad meal or a bad experience there. Always good food, always good beer, always a good time.

Tried to pick up an on-line order tonight....I realize these are difficult times, but the place was a zoo, 3 staff and they could not find our order. I would avoid Iron Hill in West Chester until this is all over.

Server was at first ok offering a taste of their inhouse rootbeer when i asked about it... my kods ordered sprite at first but after tasting rootbeer my son wanted that instead... so i stopped the server to clearly say that my son wanted a rootbeer INSTEAD of the sprite he originally ordered... I even reinterated it like a mom, and said to him.. “so hes gonna have the rootbeer NOT the sprite ok?” He said ”yes”. he still brought the sprite without saying anything... charged us for it and my son drank it! UNBENONST TO ME AS I THOUGHT IT WAS WATER. POINT WAS I DIDN’T WANT HIM TO DRINK TWO SODAS.

That’s just bad service.

I will qualify this by saying the restaurant was extremely busy. Food was just ok my salmon was good but mashed potatoes were watery. My husband had a similar experience.

Service seemed like no one was interested in doing anything to accommodate us. We were there with my two children and were seated in the middle of the bar area that was extremely noisy. We asked to shift tables and were met with blank stares. Finally rather reluctantly they moved us further back in the bar but closer to the dining area. It was still very noisy and we had to shout to hear each other. It ended up being more stressful than a relaxing dining experience. Perhaps we did not realize this is more of a bar atmosphere than a relaxed restaurant for family dining.

Even with our reservation, we waited 15 minutes for a table. When we sat down, it was freezing. Like, so cold we didn't take our coats off. We waited for 15 minutes for a waiter/waitress and while 2 people stopped by our table to say someone would "be right there", no one ever came to take our drink order. We finally, got up and went somewhere else.
We usually love Iron Hill WC and have never had a bad experience there. Hopefully it was just a bad night.

Missing Vudoo Shrimp. That imitation Bang Bang Shrimp isn’t cutting it! We’re KOTH members and were disappointed in the shrimp and our seat! Very last high top table in restaurant. Boo. First bad experience at IH.

We e. Even there several times and always had very tasty meals. Our server was very good, attentive and knew the details of the menu items. The only downside, which the restaurant has No control over, was the booth next to us had a very loud person whose voice boomed over top of our conversation Repeatedly, That can happen anywhere. It would be helpful when the place is fairly empty, to not place people in a line of tables or booths on top of each other, at least start diners out every other table...? (This applies everywhere, and more on the training of the hostesses. ).
The flatbread was excellent, as was the pulled pork sandwich. Great taste and nice size portions.

Large variety of choices that accommodate almost any dietary restrictions. Food is well prepared. Appreciated that on this dinner, 20% of the fees went to benefit the Crime Victims' Center of Chester County.

We had a reservation and yet waited 45 minutes for a table. The noise level is crazy. You have to yell. The service was terrible. The managers apologized but did nothing beyond that- like maybe giving us a round of drinks or something. Really poorly managed operation- you can see it in the staff. Dropping trays, no coordination between servers, etc. I'm not even going to get into parking (there is none except in the garage blocks away.)

They were donating 20% of food purchases to Sovana Bistro employees who’ve lost employment since the restaurant recently burned down so we wanted to contribute.

Had lunch with a friend the service was very good. We were able to sit and converse with out feeling pressured to order, eat and move on so they could seat someone else. Our order came out quickly and was correct. The food was cooked we requested. The menu has enough variety to satisfy almost anyone’s taste. We sat in the dining room but they also serve food in the bar where you can watch sports or whatever is on TV. I had a pulled pork sandwich and my friend had a Reuben both were very tasty.

As usual, good food, good service, good beer. The King of the Hill benefits are fine, even though they no longer give you a mug every year.
