Well located on one of the main roads into/out of Lancaster and directly across from Franklin & Marshall College. There is also a minor league ballpark right around the corner. Exterior is business park-like, but the attractive interior is warm, woody and inviting. Sat at the bar where the service was great. Food was good as well, although we did not stray far from the lunchtime standards. Beer selection and quality was very good, with maybe 9-10 on tap, plus a nitro and cask conditioned offering. Styles ranged from pilsners to Belgians. Definitely plan on returning when in the area again.

Nice place, great to have another brewery in the area. Service was prompt and pleasant and the food was good but a little pricey. Beer was all there stuff, fresh and most of it was tasty. Good variety. Liked the seating and the atmosphere only thing I donít get is the logo. What does it have to do with Iron and or hills?! But whatever good stuff.

This was my first visit to an Iron Hill, and itís pretty clear that they spare no expense on the place. Cavernous interior, high ceilings, huge oak bar, brass, and all the upscale bells and whistles. Despite this, itís a bit ostentation and sterile-feeling. A large bar area and a semi-separated restaurant area as well. Our service was pretty crappy though, waited about 10 minutes after being seated before we even saw another server. After she brought our food and beer, I didnít see her again for another 45 minutes. The place wasnít busy at all when we were in, so there was very little excuse for the neglect. The beers however, were incredible. High quality from virtually every style I sampled. The sampler is a great deal too, at 7 bucks for a taste of everything theyíve got. Definitely worth going to.

This is an excellent location for an Iron Hill: plenty of parking, nice area, and very accessible. Iron Hills tend to be pretty expensive, but, being across the street from a rich-kid college, I donít necessarily agree that itís expensive of the area. In any case, the ambiance was pretty typical of an Iron Hill. The service was excellent. The manager, PJ, treated us to a private tour of the brew house (which is a bit different than other brew houses Iíve seen). The selection at the moment is VERY good: Barleywine, Bier de Garde, Triple, Vienna Red, Belgian Pale Ale, and Bourbon Barrel Indulgence (a chocolate stout). The food was excellent as usual. Iíll be back when the casked Krypotnite is tapped.

Iíve been here twice and the food and service is great. The prices are a little high for the area, but if you are looking for a nice night out then check out Iron Hill.
As far as beer is concerned they have a decent selection, and to ge the biggest bang for your buck, get the sampler. With the samplers you get at least 8, 4 oz beers, for around $7 and pints are $4-5 depending on the beer. What Iíve noticed with the samplers though is they will give you every beer on tap so weíve already gotten 12, 4 oz beers for $7, not a bad deal!
I will also add here that they will give you small samples of the beers before you order a pint, if you are undecided.

a nice place that is a tad too expensive for my tastes. the food was great but way overpriced. beer was pretty average with only two standout brews I got in my 9 beer sampler. non-smoking is a big plus.

A very nice place, great atmospher, pretty much just like any other iron hill. The dining area was kinda crowded, the tables were very close to each other, so i would request a booth when going, or the bar. Expensive beer and food, the food is worth it, but the beer is just average overall, still a nice place.
