It was a nice setting. Table was a bit small to fit four at. Tables are better for two maybe three. Chairs were a bit wobbly. Good food and porter tho. Reasonable priced.

Last minute decision to go. Was not positive about going with 2 picky eaters, but I was pleasantly surprised. Our server was very knowledgable. Reasonable priced. Great selection of beers! Tried a few I wouldn’t normally. Will be going back next week!

Reception staff personable and accommodating.
My dinner was good.
It was a little noisy due to people having a relaxed, good time.
Plenty of space.
Easy entry and exit; close to city facilities, ie., business, art/cultural, entertainment, parking,etc.
My dinner plate was delivered to my table in a reasonable time considering crowd
between 5 and 7:00, Saturday.
Waitress was personable, but I felt she was hurried and distracted by other tables in waiting.
Recommend reservations.

This place used to be the best. Over the last few years the beer has been going down hill. Got a beer sampler this past time and some were just undrinkable. Hope the new brewer can turn things around.

We went on Halloween so it wasn’t crowded or too many screaming kids. We have found either families or college students usually there on other nights and it can get loud. Food is great and service has always been good.

Great vibe for a Friday night out. The menu is extensive and the food is very good. They have interesting beer selections and adjust the menu to suit the season. It’s lively and is a good spot for lunch or dinner.

Our visits have always been good. We usually request Megan as our server but this night she was not serving. She did come to our table. She is always friendly and very knowledgeable about the food and beers. Service with a smile.

Iron Hill Brewery has been an institution in West Chester known for it's incredible beers and a great gathering place. We visited because they advertised that they would donate 20% of our food purchase to the West Chester Food Pantry. We like to support these types of programs. The special beer, Heavenly Indulgence was amazing. The food , on the other hand, was not up to previous standards. None of us enjoyed our food as much as we have in the past. It was just OK, and that has not been our experience with this establishment.

Enjoyed my meal however they were out of Pinot Noir.

The main courses on my meal which consisted of Kielbasa bratwurst and pork I was told they were out of the pork I substituted for a piece of chicken when it came there was no kielbasa and there was pork.

They said they made a mistake Willy told me there was no pork they should’ve said there was no Kielbasa.

The entrée was very good and they did comp my meal. I appreciate it and I would return.

Even though Open Table was not working properly when we arrived, the hostess sat us immediately. Other people without reservations had an hour wait. I did have the email confirm on my phone, despite the Open Table app not working on a busy Saturday night. So the staff knew I had a reservation.

The beer and food were good, the wait staff very good and the atmosphere fun. We'll be back.

Noisy in Siberia--Got a table in the very back that was still noisy. Our waiter was new and did not put in the order for our meals to arrive together. The kids got theirs early and the adults waited for another 15 minutes before our food arrived. He did this for our convenience without asking us. Very weird. Much less fun than usual.

I heard the burgers are great here but was not in the mood for one. Our meals were good but not excellent. Our server was wonderful thou. She was very sweet and seemed to love her job and really knew the menu and anything we asked her she was extremely helpful. We were at our first parents weekend.

Made a 6:45p reservation for 3 but wasn't seated till 7:15. Inquired multiple times and was told each time that our table was being prepared. Finally a manager came and seated us personally. She comped us an app and my first beer. Happy to see that she cared. Besides this hiccup, food and beer is excellent.

After we got beyond their not finding our reservation on Open Table, the service and food was outstanding. The noise factor on Friday night was a bit over the top. My burger was the best I've had in a while...highly recommend them.

The mushroom soup was delicious! The waiter did a nice job of refilling our drinks. We enjoy Iron Hill Brewery and consistently have good food here. I ordered the meatloaf and it was very good. My husband ordered the red chili shrimp. The shrimp were tasty but pretty small. The black bean cake that came with this was very good though.

The reason that the noise level was so high, was due to the fact that we sat outside, on purpose; so for us, that is not a negative. We really did have an overall great experience, and look forward to returning to this restaurant.
