Our service was really bad. Firstthey didn’t not bring one person their beer until everyone was almost done. And was given a lame explanation of why. They were changing taps? Then how did my daughter get the same beer. Next when we asked to take the menus off the table before the apps came they served them on 8 menus. Then the dishes sat. I piled them in a tower in the middle. When dinner came they were still there. My friend didn’t get her entree until everyone was done. We were told someone took her meal. Then this played sat. 15 minutes after we ate. I piled them into a tower again when the waitress came to ask about dessert. I could not read the menu and thought it was a pecan pie. I specifically asked is it pie and was told yes. Others ordered dessert. The dish tower stayed on table. Then five minutes later she comes back to tell me it’s ice cream not pie. I order some cobbler. Five minutes later she comes back to tell me some one got the last one. We canceled everyone’s dessert and left the dish tower still on the table. I left a tip but. It 20%. Service was bad and the restaurant was not very full. If I screwed up one order I’d be making sure that a large party got everything else right. We had three major issues dirty dishes twice and left feeling really bad about iron hill. Food was good but not fantastic. Portions were small. Won’t be back.

Delicious burgers! Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Food took a while to come out but a good burger usually does! Would definitely return and recommend it to any one. A great experience in Center City! Convenient to all areas. Bar and tvs available.

I enjoyed the Iron Hill in Media for many years. Good food. Kinda quirky, etc. When I saw the Iron Hill in Center City on a recent trip, I thought it might be great for a quick bite with the fam. Food just wasn't that great, unfortunately. Seems like Iron Hill has turned into a factory-food sportsbar, which is a real shame. It was kinda unique as an easy foodie-ish brewpub in its various incarnations before that.

A bit pricey but food was great. One beer, one wine, two burgers, and special hushpuppies was $68. Beer selection is decent; I'm used to places that easily have 2-3 times as many options.

Quality of food was good but not excellent and the food runners were great. Wait person helping our table was slow and average. Noisy table near the bar area was not ideal but overall good experience.

Was not happy with waitress. She was riding us and kept reaching over one person to get to the next instead of going to the side of the other person.

Excellent food, with a nice combination of classic pub fare plus unusual selections, like the beet-cured salmon which I thoroughly enjoyed. Great server, who was cheerful and very helpful.

My first time dining here and admit it was average. Our server was Meghan and she was great. Very attentive and friendly. Food was ok though. Busy location so reservations are highly recommended!

We met our son and daughter-in-law at Iron Hill for dinner, on our way to a concert. Our goal was to have an enjoyable meal quickly and then head on our way. The service was efficient, food was delicious, and the overall meal enjoyable. Thank you!

When I first walked in I thought this was going to be another chain restaurant with adequate food. What I had was a delicious outstanding meal for awesome price. The wait staff was great. Isaiah was so kind and took care of my wife for her surprise birthday at the spur of the moment . Will definitely go back.

Absolutely awesome place. It is now my go to spot. Had the pub burger with egg and it was perfectly made-medium rare. Had a tasting of several beers brewed in house and the dunkel was my favorite so far. Willbe going back Very soon.

It was really hard to really review. There was a fire alarm going off as soon as our food was brought to the table and we were practically pushed out the door.

Had high expectations but food was mediocre, as was service. Tried 3 apps, salad, different main dishes, nothing special at all. Server was nice, just not around much. Dirty dishes kept on table throughout meal, had to wait quite some time for refills, check etc. Hubs did like his beer tho!

This place happened to be across the street from the Marriott we were staying at — glad we went there!
The food was very good and so were the local beers on tap.
I am a fan!

Bel locale e ottime birre. Servizio molto superficiale disattento. Cibo altalenante, buoni ribs, tonno arrivato freddo e con liquido nel piatto. Da ritornare per le birre e per qualche piatto non elaborato.

Was a very good restaurant. It is a chain so it’s not authentic food from philadelphia which wasn’t a big deal for my party. Service could’ve been better but it was completely fine for a quick meal after a long drive. Would go back.

Definitely come for their beers. I've been going to various Iron Hill brewery locations over the years, and their beer selection keeps expanding and improving. Reasonably priced, and tasty. Get a flight or two! The food is good, not stand out, and I wouldn't go out of my way for it, but if I'm near a location, I would definitely consider it.

Solid for what it is - a regional chain. Good for a work group who appreciates beer and isn't looking for a gourmet meal. Food was decent but not spectacular. Beer was good. Seating is comfortable, noise level is acceptable and there are TVs tuned to sports.

My medium well Pub burger arrived nearly rare. The second one I received was perfect and really really good. So flavorful. I wish they’d gotten it right the first time because it was so very delicious. The homemade chips were excellent too. Server was a little slow on bringing bill and checking on us. Our server and the staff we interacted were all very nice. I’d probably try them again.
