I’ve been here a dozen times or more, and make a lot of midday trips on weekends or days off. Despite being in a college town, it’s not a very young crowd most of the time, which is welcome. Hit or miss beers, though usually solid, are not often outstanding. The bartenders seem harried, even though there are usually more than one and the place isn’t that large. They’re less likely to give you the lowdown on the available beer, and I often even have to ask for a beer list. As with the other Iron Hills, the food is decent and the menu offers a decent vegetarian selection. Prices are on the high side for food and beer. Since the remodel, the place always smells like BBQ, and I like that. Outside seating is available, but is abused by the hot sun on most days you’d want to be out there. Parking in Newark sucks and the meters are expensive and annoying.

A very good Delaware brewpub with an every changing selection of special house brews and seasonals. Decent food at a good price. 750ml to go bottles and growlers are pricey.

Stopped by around 11PM on a Wednesday night. Place was pretty deserted, but there were a few people around. Nice ambience... dark woods, and a nice smoky aroma, didn’t see a fireplace so I guess it was from a smoker. Located in a downtown area and while I found parking VERY easily, at a busier time I could see it being tricky. The beers ranged from slightly underwhelming in the styles you’d expect to be underwhelming to a Belgian Black that was one of the best beers I’ve had in a while. 8 bucks for a sampler. Didn’t try the food. Bartender was efficient and friendly. Nice stop. I’d have liked to stay longer.

Classy place, usually a good selection on tap. They always have lots of seasonals and special releases, many of which are tasty brews. Price is on the higher side, but what do you expect in a college town on the east coast?

Very good food but pricey.Good house beer but the seasonal beer is their biggest draw imo.

Food is pricey but the ambiance is very good for a brewpub. House beers are good but nothing special. Seasonal beers are better.

While a little pricy, Iron Hill was a good place to go to have some real beer. Would often go on Wednesday nights to get around the cost. Their vienna red is extremely good, but for first timers, I would suggest getting their sampler (like I did my first time there). Food was very good as well. I especially enjoyed their burgers. Definitely the place to go if you’re looking for a slightly classier place in a college town.

Was there on a warm summer evening, so we avoided the aforementioned college crowd. The standard selection of Iron Hill beers including a very nice hoppenweissen, Belgian style wit and a cask conditioned IPA. . Large menu, diverse enough for most people. Our food came out quickly and was well prepared. Bartender was attentive but not chatty or overly friendly. Overall: nice atmosphere, fair, but not cheap prices, decent service, no turn-offs.

Good beer selection, good location, bottles to go, great food. Parking really sucks. The parking is the only down side to the whole place. Highly recommended if you are in the area.

We’ve been here a few times, most recently on our way home from Florida. We parked on the street, but parking can be an issue, and you will be towed if you park in the wrong lot. Good selection of beers, although their pints were a bit pricey, even for a New Yorker like me. Their 750’s are expensive, mostly in the $18-$22 range. Extensive menu all well prepared and served hot. The nacho appetizer came to the table quickly as was terrific. Our dinner was slow coming to the table as it was a crowded evening. Then, I had to wait for the sour cream for my baked potato and ate most of my prime rib before it was finally brought to the table. Lively atmosphere. Worth the visit.
