Visited here on 4th of July on the way south. I was afraid it would be closed but there was a light crowd there. This is one of 9 locations but the only one in NJ so far (another is coming soon to Voorhees). The others are in DE & PA. I was able to get flights and taste all 5 house beers (these 5 are available at all locations) as well as another 8 specialty beers (these vary location to location). Overall the beers were quite good...some were a little plain...but most are worth the trip. They also sell large bottles of additional varieties. The space itself is very nice...big but with a welcoming feel. I enjoyed the food very much and the server we had was excellent. I am actually surprised that a "chain" of 9 brewpubs can be this good (assuming the others are equal to the Maple Shade location).
These guys did a great job. Itís the sort of place you can go and hang out at the bar or book a wedding reception. The wait staff is very polite and energetic. About half of them know their beers but the others make up for it in service. The only complaint is that they donít seem to have the staff necessary to handle high volume. There have been a couple peak moments of traffic where Iíd go half an hour waiting to be served.
Great beer selection. Chris LaPierre is a wizard. If you are a beer geek, make sure to ask for the secret sour.
The food is quite good and priced accordingly. This does repel me from going there more often and makes this more of a date/event sort of place. I never felt gipped out of my dollar though. Overall, this is a great stop for craft beer in NJ.
Visited mid-afternoon on Tuesday. Strip mall location right off of the Kings Highway. The front of building is a large bar, bar tables, and a couple of booths by the window. Behind the bar is several rooms with restaurant seating. Service was a touch slow for the thin crowd, though it was friendly and knowledgeable. They had the 5 main Iron Hill beers, plus 7 seasonal and locals. I had 4 ounce samples of 5 of the beers, and was happy with all of them. I always enjoy Iron Hill.
Massive place, but still jam packed on an early Saturday evening. When I asked if I could just stand at the bar, the hostess said, "doo wuteva ya wanna, hon." Thatís when I knew for sure I wuz in Joisey.
Large space with a big initial bar area and large restaurant seating area. We had a couple pints at the bar while waiting for our seats and the barkeep was knowledgable and friendly. The pale was real nice and ultra fresh. Very well done. Food was all top-notch. The place was pretty loud in the seating area but it was at capacity so I guess that is expected. Our server was real friendly and always quick with a new beer (and I had plenty). Really enjoyable experience, food, and beers. This is the only IH Iíve been to but it inspires me to try one or two more.
Defintiely the biggest Iron Hill I have been to... high ceiliings, typical Iron Hiill decor and very deep ... this place didnít seem to end with tons of seating ... parking sucked went on a Wednesday night and it was packed with a wait for a table so the bar had to do ... food menu was huge: apps, soups, salads with sandwiches around 9 bucks to entreeís over 20 bucks and daily specials ... the food was very good, solid serving size: had a nice dinner entree with soup ..... beer list was decent with a nice mix of styles cask conditioned, seasonals, staples and a barrel aged brew ... bottle take out menu was deep with all different kinds of package deals for different styles, or just single bottles ranging from $16.50 to $25 bucks which is way overpriced .... sat right in front of the growler filler which was busy all night and seemed reasonably priced .. the service was prompt and the bartender was knowledgable about the beers and suggestions .... overall the value food wise was good, the beers on tap were on par with most philly bars and the bottles were highway robbery .... These guys have a great product all around, bottle prices are a turnoff
I used to live 5min from here and went often. Super nice place and very clean. Very friendly staff and knowledgable bartenders. They offer samplers that you get to pick 6-8 different beers and usually have about 10-14 brews on tap. Counter-pressure growler fills to go and bottles, though the bottles are a bit pricy. I think the food makes this place! Get the wings, damn fine. Seriously, this place is a destination if you are in the South Jersey/Philly area.

Iron Hill makes their own brews, and some of the m are quite good, they all have a fairly nice finish. What they may lack in diversity, they seemingly make up for in homemade quality. Even my wife likes to try their offerings, and she isnít much of a beer drinker. Restaurant has mighty good eats, from Pizza to platters to sandwiches. Staff is always patient, helpfully informative and friendly. A nice place for groups or even families.

iron hill is a great place to eat. the food is great and the beer is even better.
I NEED to go back to this place next time Iím home. Since Iíve relocated to NYC I havent had the chance to go back in over a year or maybe even two. Great, big restaurant with high ceilings. Friendly staff with lots of good beer on draft, what else do you want???
