We had good food and beer. The service was very attentive. I had a reservation. My group was seated before I arrived and we were at high top tables near the bar. I would have preferred a regular table. It was fairly noisy because it was near the bar. Next time I will request regular seating when I make a reservation.

The waiter was super! He suggested items we "older" ladies might like. He brought the right tasting wine we were looking for and cautioned about things that might be too spicy. An overall great experience. We will be back again soon with our monthly lunch group.

Food was good and service was excellent. The only complaint was the coffee. It was terrible. Why not invest in a brew by the cup system so coffre drinkers can have a GOOD cup of coffee instead of old, burned, or bitter coffee. There are many who dont consume alcohol and it would be a welcome change to go out with friends and be able to enjoy good coffee while they enjoy an akcoholic beverage.

We went to Iron Hill for dinner on Mother's Day. The food was delicious and the service was excellent! I had the salmon, which was cooked to perfection, my husband had the chicken pot pie, which is always a favorite of ours, and my daughter had a specialty pizza, which she thoroughly enjoyed. For dessert we had a chocolate torte and the creme brulee, both of which were delicious. Our server, Carly, was very attentive and pleasant, and was very helpful with my husband while selecting beers to include with his flight. We always enjoy our meals at Iron Hill and will definitely go back!

Food was good. Server very friendly and helpful but there was only one for our section. She was so busy it was hard to get her attention so basics like drink refills was very slow. They needed another assistant or server to support the area.

Came for an early Mother’s Day dinner and had an enjoyable time. Food was great and service was unobtrusive so we could enjoy time together. The only drawback is that my notes from open table for a booster seat and a gluten free menu and the additional discussion with the host on the phone earlier today as well verifying our reservation, and a reminder when we checked in, didn’t translate to the actual check in of our reservation and had to be requested again when we got to the table and then again of our server making for far too many requests for a booster seat and a gluten free menu.

Your hostess was the hit of our evening. She was very comforting as we were travelling from two different directions and she assured us that we would be accommodated. She was the best hostess I have ever met. I had my six year great niece from Baltimore with me and she was a super person toward her.

We were in Delaware for a NASCAR race at Dover Downs and the hotel where we were staying recommended this place when my husband asked for a local microbrewery. The food was excellent.! We loved the wings! The Falafel burger and the turkey burger was amazing! The beer was fresh and tasty and our server Hailey was great! We liked it so much we ate there both nights we were in town. Highly recommended!

I was surprised that they did not know how to make a Bloody Mary. I was also surprised that I had the scallops with shrimp in sauce but there was no side dish with it for the price. I will say the appetizers were good. Just a little disappointed because I heard such good things.

A group of 8 of us enjoyed dining for pre-theater meal. Waitress was very pleasant. We weren't sure of beer, so 3 were recommended and ample samples were provided. A friend and I split a delicious burger of the day and were given a generous green, fresh, tasty salad each as our side at no extra cost. I have dined here numerous times and am always pleased with the selection, taste and quality of the food. Kudos to this local group who has not let quality go as they have expanded the number of restaurants .

Iron Hill is a reliable dining experience. Good food, good service. My only complaint is that it can get very loud especially in the downstairs and upstairs bars making it hard to have a conversation without shouting. Outside dining is great but there’s often a wait.

There is something for everybody at Iron Hill, and it remains one of our “go to” places. Good food, good beer, and attentive servers. I wish the noise level in the main dining room were a little lower, and usually opt to sit in the bar for that reason. We sat in the dining room this time and there was a large party across the room, so it was loud. We had pizza, salads, fish and chips, Jaegersnitzel, and the burger of the day (May is Burger Month) — and capped it off with a wonderful lemon dessert in puff pastry. Great food, great time with friends!

I would have gave higher rating but the service was slow. I would not necessarily say it was our servers fault. I think they were understaffed. When I checked in they told the people ahead of me it was an hour wait for both inside and outside seating for two people . However in the section where we were there were at least 15 empty tables with only a few occupied. Our apps came before our bar drinks. The food was good as were the drinks but I expected better. We go to the West Chester location often and it is not like this even on the busiest of times like the Christmas Parade.

The only reason I couldn't give 5 stars was due to the service. We'd had great service here before, but with the hustle and bustle of Saturday night, our server was distracted and frazzled. We were offered drink refills once and received them just before we finished our meal. We were offered dessert, which we initially declined, but when the server returned with our boxes, I asked about the creme brulee to go. The server informed us that it wasn't available, didn't ask about or offer an alternative or dessert menu, left the check, and that's the last we saw of them. We would have indulged in more, but it seemed they just wanted us out the door. There were 2 large parties in the center of our dining room which required a lot of attention at the other diners' expense. It gave the appearance of being understaffed, especially if those parties had made reservations as we had.

Iron Hill has the best servers and fresh food. You could even dock your boat right outside in the summertime and come on in. Outdoor seating in sun and shade are also available.

This was a fun place to have a business dinner with my team. The menu was pretty diverse as it had both sandwiches/burgers and more substantive entrees. Good service and wasn't very crowded at 8:30 pm on a Monday night. Recommend for a comfortable, casual place to eat at a reasonable price.

DO NOT TRY TO RESERVE OUTDOOR SEATING!!! They do not take reservations for it. Even though their web site directs you to opentable and they say you can. They would not accept the reservation made hours before. No phone call saying they wouldn't do it. We went in 5 minutes before our time and we got told no to the reservation that they don't take them for outdoors. We would have to get in line for a seat out there. 30 parties ahead of we wanted that. So they said they would seat us at our time inside and we accepted that. 7:00 came the time of the reservation and went 7:15 came and went and finally 7:20 was here I went and asked what was going on and they acted like we were bothering them. We had somewhere to go afterwards reason we made the reservation. We finally got to sit down 25 minutes later. Then the waitress took 15 minutes to get to us. After that the drinks and food came out quick so happy about that. Just not worth the wait and not sure the point of a reservation system if they don't go by it.

Overall is was just okay, very disappointing I was able to book a table outside via Open Table, but when I arrived I was told they couldn’t do that. They said they had a table inside, but nothing outside. We were bummed, but mistakes are understandable. What wasn’t okay, was being told they had a table for us, and then waiting 30 minutes to be sat.
Food was okay, drinks were made poorly, however our server was excellent.
