The new deck is amazing! Lightly covered so you still feel like you are sitting outside but not blasted by the sun or deal with umbrellas that obstruct your view! The beer was cold... I love Mahalo Apollo, the food was fantastic (as usual)... our server Matthew was personable and the food timed perfect for a mom and 2 kiddos.

While the food and service was good, the noise level was atrocious. My guest and I had to yell across the table to be heard. Definitely not a place to have a conducive conversation.

Long time customers of Iron Hill. Some of the usual extras were missing. No breadsticks with any of the salads. Iceberg lettuce on the lettuce wraps versus bib or romaine lettuce.
I hope as you expand you don't lose the things that made you a neighborhood gem.

I love the look of the new renovations but the volume level is insane. I wish there was something they could do to help absorb some of the sound to allow guest to be able to easily speak when in the dinning room or well anywhere.

Worst experience in 25 years!
Delayed seating even with reservation.
Obnoxiously loud noisy rock music playing on Mother’s Day.
Mediocre service.
Outrageous noise level.
Iron Hill has totally lost its way.
We would always enjoy and recommend in the past. No more.

Service was slow, long wait times for requests, plenty of people working. Could possibly have been a new waitress. Burger was great, fries were cold. With all that said, I would definitely give them a second chance.

Normally I love Iron Hill and I’m a king of the hill member, but my most recent experience was rough. Our beer took forever, food even longer. This would be a one star review except the restaurant manager was awesome and comped our meals. We’ll try again but probably not soon...

Our table was next to a high traffic area, our server got really busy and seemed to forget we were there, twice forgetting our drinks. We finally had to ask someone else to help us. I got my daughter a dessert for her birthday, the waiter practically threw it on the table and said Happy Birthday. The food was cold and our steaks were rare when we asked for well. I would not go back

The restaurant was in the middle of renovation so that contributed to the lack of “great ambience”. The tables were very close and so I felt like I was eating with other folks. Beer was excellent though. ( I had the Danny Dortmunder. Love that beer! I strongly recommend you keep that beer year round please!) Food was good as well.

Iron Hill never disappoints when ever I go here. The food and beer is always perfect and the staff is super friendly. Its always a good idea to get a reservation before going here because its so popular and fills up very quickly.

Took over 10 minutes for our server to first visit our table. Our last visit was similar. The rest of the service was good.

Wish you still offered pizzas. The flatbreads are an ok alternative, but they’re maybe a little overpriced for the size and the pizzas were better.

Had to wait 40 minutes after we arrived for our reservation time. They're doing construction so part of the restaurant was not open when we were dining, but for an 8:00pm reservation, I wouldn't expect to have to wait so long. It also seemed like they were short-staffed, as our waiter was running around the whole night.

Not the place to be until the renovations are completed. Only the upstairs were open. It was packed, noisy and the service was quite poor.
Having said that, I still recommend the place. Just wait another few weeks before going!

It was a birthday dinner for my husband with our family, 8 in all. Our server was obviously overwhelmed with having 3 fairly large tables. She was capable of getting the children’s meals out first but lacked with attending to the table. We were seated in the middle of the dining room where it got very loud through out the dinner. It would have been more comfortable and perhaps less noise in a booth, or upstairs in the more private dining. The food for the adults came out slow and we had to leave due to the timing (around 2 hours) before we could cut the cake. We will not be back as a family again. It’s fine for a casual dinner or happy hour. Food was decent.

I plan on returning the next time I'm in Wilmington. The food was excellent. The selection of brews was also outstanding. The Red Lager was satisfying. We tried the curried carrot soup and were very pleased. The crab cakes turned out to be as advertised. Very happy with the choice. We had the apple crisp and were not disappointed.

Chicken terriaki was awesome! Salmon was under cooked twice, even after it was originally requested to be well done.
Very noisy dining area and tables placed quite close together. Similar to a dining hall.
Waitress was awesome! Sorry, I dont remember her name.
