Modern place in the corner of a huge long row of generic looking condo buildings. Big parking lot right behind it, so no problem there. All the usual suspects were on tap, plus half a dozen brews unique to this location, mostly pretty tasty. Worth a look if you’re passing by.
Another Iron Hill location, but with some great beers of their own. The appetizers were good, and our service mediocre. There was a nice selection of house and chain beers on tap to keep us occupied. A bit pricey for the area.
Probably the biggest of the Iron Hills that I’ve visited. It’s literally across the street from F&M. There’s no way I would have attended classes senior year if I attended a college with a brewpub across the street. Sat in the bar area which didn’t have the best service on the day. I hate having to ask for water repeatedly and my friends waited 20 minutes before the server returned to take our order. They had a berliner weisse which was excellent. very crisp and Tart, it didn’t need syrup. The prices were a bit much $12 for two pints seems a bit excessive. But I’d definitely go back if I’m in the area, as long as I can find someone else to pay.

Nice stop. Open space but filled with rich wood that gave it a cozy feel. The parking is ample. My server was very helpful and knew a good bit about the beer. Prices for food are on the high side but still reasonable, and the food is pretty damn good. The beer ranges from solid to very good, and it is priced well, with the exception of the bottled reserve series, which are $17+ for a 750. Pretty astronomical, especially direct from the brewery. Other than that, though, a very nice place, and I’m happy with my first ever visit to an Iron Hill. .
Similar to the other location i visited a few years back, this is a modern and vibrant brewpub with great beers, lovely food selection, good service and good sampling opportunities (1$ a 4 on. sample)...As with all IH locations, a must go!
This was my first visit to an Iron Hill, and it’s 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, it’s 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 didn’t see her again for another 45 minutes. The place wasn’t 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 they’ve got. Definitely worth going to.
I believe this is the largest and original brewpub of the Iron Hill chain. Also, the only one I have ever visited. Was here twice and both times, pretty crowded with a service that seemed okay. Beers are reasonably priced to the level of their quality. My mushroom cheeseburger was damn good. I don’t mind Iron Hill, but not really a spectacular place or place to look for "beer whales," it’s all their beers anyways.
Located in downtown Lancaster, across from Franklin and Marshall college. Surprisingly the crowd when I was there on a Sunday night was a little older (definitely not a college crowd atmosphere). They had a huge tap list, maybe 15 beers, ranging from an imperial stout to a pumpkin stout to a number of Belgian offerings, etc. The pumpkin stout I got was the best I’ve ever had. Wow. It was so good I had to get 2 pints, instead of trying something else. The food here is great (I got the chicken pot pie). Overall, it is on the pricier side, but you can’t get much better quality than this. I’ve only been to one other Iron Hill location (Wilmington), and this is pretty comparable although they had more beers on tap here, so I guess I would say it’s better. A great must stop!

Stopped in for a sampler around 5pm on a Friday. Sat in the bar area and got a seasonal sampler. Service was sketchy but not rude at least. It has been a while since I have been to an Iron Hill, but I imagine they are have a formula to their design. The beers were fine and the menu looked pretty good though I did not order food. Good location and not hard to reach - a bit more interesting than Lancaster Brewing.
You know what you’re getting with IH -- great food, good service, and tasty beers. Very kid-friendly as well. We came here on a Sunday night and were very happy with everything that made it to the table. We won’t hesitate to come back the next time we’re in the neighborhood.
