I really enjoy everything, the waiter Vincent was very knowledgeable about pairing the right drink with my meal. Also I really appreciated the manager Donna coming over to our table. She was a pleasure to talk to.

I liked the restaurant and the ambiance. Even though I went for restaurant week, my party chose not to eat off of the restaurant menu. The prices are fair in accordance to what other restaurants in Center City charge but I thought they should have given more food. When our food came, we felt the portion size could have been larger. It took sometime for us to get service after we were seated, it took at least 10 mins before anyone came to our table after we were seated. Overall, my experience was good but they should think about food portions and checking back with guests because we had to look for our waitress several times to ask for things but overall my rating of the restaurant was good.

It was okay. I have noticed over time the service seems to be not as great as it was when they first opened. The food has also gone down a bit. We have been thinking about finding a new Sunday place

The food, as always at Iron Hill, was incredible and the service was great. The space is a giant 2 story open room with little to nothing to absorb any sound, so I was entirely unable to hear my husband who was seated across the table from me. I will be revisiting Iron Hill, just in one of their other locations which have better design and acoustics.

Great food, decent service (probably just because it was extremely busy) prices a little high for my taste but hey, it’s on market street, they gotta pay rent too. Would definitely go back!

Considering I'd made a reservation, I wasn't particularly happy with where are table was. The food was average, though the $9.00 dessert wasn't very good and the coffee was undrinkable. The waiter was attentive for the beginning of the meal, but then it took us forever to get our check. The only thing worthwhile was the location.

Chicken wasn’t cooked all the way and steak was well done when I asked for medium well. The table shook as I tried to cut it. It was very dry

Das Restaurant ist etwas für Bierliebhaber. Die Lage ist sehr gut, das Ambiente ansprechend. Den Service fand ich ausgezeichnet. Wir testeten (kostenfrei!!!) 6 verschiedene Sorten in kleinen Gläsern. Das Porter fand ich ausgezeichnet, die anderen Biere empfand ich zu fruchtig. Das Essen war okay,, nicht schlecht aber auch nicht weltbewgend. Für Bierliebhaber unbedingt zu empfehlen, für Gourmets eher nicht.

Enjoy coming here. Everything I've had so far was very good. Servers have been nice. Today's server was particularly nice to a grumpy 5 year old.

The seafood chowder was a little salty, it was the second time I had it and both times salty. I felt our food server was more attentive than our waiter. The meal was just okay. Really no hurry to come back.

We were very happy with the burgers and cheesesteak eggrolls. Chicken sliders were too spicy for my guest, but that doesn’t mean they weren’t good. Pig iron porter was impressive. Service was generally good. What initially produced a bad impression was getting seated. We had a reservation, but that didn’t matter. Support personnel was clearly overwhelmed. To me, fewer people could be checking in and more cleaning the tables to get patrons seated. That would help to get it moving rather than having a dozen people standing in a few square feet of space by the entrance. Also, telling walk-ins there was 20-min wait when we had to wait just as long was overly optimistic, in my opinion, and wouldn’t help the crowd accumulating at the door. But once we were seated, there were no more issues. I would come there again.

In comparison to the Iron Hill in Huntingdon Valley is was just okay. The food was sad looking but tasted good. Restroom needed attention and the booth wasn’t very clean. The menu pages were torn and very dirty.

We were there during an Eagles game so it was a noisy bar crowd. Lots of smoke from the grill. Little too much. The prices were higher than normal but I guess that is expected in the city. We enjoyed the food but the value was not good.

I have dined at several Iron Hill restaurants, but this was by far the worst experience I’ve had. The service was not good. The server could not be less interested in us. She stopped by maybe twice. The food was so gross. I have had the OMG BLT in other restaurants, and it was delicious. This was sopping with condiments and hastily put together. The whole experience was miserable, which was disappointing since this was our annual holiday trek to the city, and I thought I was picking a reliable and delicious venue.

I was there eating with my family. I asked for my burger to be well done and for there to be no bacon. It came out very rare with bacon. I notified the server and she sent it back. I was brought out extra fries which caused me to be super full by the time my burger came out. When I go out to eat with my family I like to eat with my family & not have to wait around for my food to be made the way I ordered. Most other restaurants would have either not charged me for the burger, given me a discount, or a free dessert. NOTHING was given to us for the inconvenience and the lack of enjoyment of being able to eat with my family. So, if you come here, don’t expect them to do you right from their mistakes.
