Lunch stop on my way to Philly. Right off the highway, which is nice. Large parking lot nice as well. Not busy for lunch on a Wednesday, although I was there a bit after noon. They had about 12 taps running including their five stated "house" beers and a bunch of specials. Bartender was nice, and either answered my questions or went and found an answer. Food was good (I had the Ahi salad). Beers were overall decent. No major flaws or anything, but nothing really stood out from the pack. Interestingly, the four beers I tried mapped to three different Iron Hills in three different states. It would seem that some cleaning up may be in order for this chain?

Good beer. Nice brew pub feel. Only had nachos, they weren’t very good but were expensive. Better beer than food.
Ambiance: Decent enough place...but definitely has that chain feel to it. Too cookie cutter for me.
Service: The bartenders were decent and semi attentive but not overly knowledgeable about their own beers
Selection: Decent selection as they had like 15 in house beers but they had too many overlapping beers...two IPAs, two pale ales, 3 different dark beers, etc
Food: Ordered the chicken fajita spiced salad, decent enough for a salad
Value: 2 beers and the salad ran me almost 28 bucks...not a great price value.
Overall, okay if you are in a pinch for a brewpub but I wouldn’t make it a staple.
Stopped in for a brew and dinner. Pretty cool looking place inside. Open ,warm and clean. Went into total sticker shock when I opened the menu. Prices are exorbitant for almost everything. Then found out the beers were $7 a pint. To pricey for my taste.
More spacious than most locations due to large windows making up one wall, patio, water nearby. Service decent, restaurant near filled by lunch time on a Sunday. Bar consistent with all IH locations in having only one TV at bar. Lots of seating behind bar and restaurant area. Food exceptional as is case with all IH. Same number of taps though not the variety of Lancaster location, though IRS is here, and the bottles are best selection of any IH I’ve attended.
A very large, open brewery and pub with at least two floors for brewing. The bar area is large and has access to a patio, but it is rather noisy, so this is not a good conversation spot. The pizzas were very good and priced well. They were doing a special hoppy beer promotion so there were 15 different Iron Hill beers available. The staff was friendly and attentive.
Very convenient on the way to or from Philly, this place is in a revitalized part of town that used to be known for its shipbuilding, but then turned seedy. Looks like it cleaned up nice. Modern place, strip mall style, with visible brewing equipment. Brewer was there when I stopped by. They had 8 draft beers and two cask, plus a bunch of bottles. The few that I tried were pretty good. Food was pretty standard, tasty enough. Service was quick, efficient, friendly and well-versed in the beers. Worth a stop.
Just off I-95 in an area called the Riverfront (be careful; one wrong turn puts you in a sketchy neighborhood). Other restaurants, a museum and a minor league ballpark share the area. This Iron Hill has a large dining room, including outside seating, but the bar itself is not very big.. The atmosphere overall is pleasant. Friendly, attentive bartender that knew the beers. Beer selection was very good, including about 6 seasonals and a cask. Decent, if somewhat pricey food. Easy to recommend if you pass close by.
