I was fortunate enough to get invited to the opening night Taste Testing by Miver... Food is excellent, I would highly recommend the sweet potato fries, thick fresh cut, with 3 dipping sauces, bouron vanilla cream, smoked paprika aioli, and habanero-lime.... Beer selection is the best in lancaster with a nice frequent change of new brews... As said before though, it can get very busy, you would def need to call for reservations on the busier nights... I have received great service in the dining area even at the busiest times... Highly recommend stopping in...especially if you are a Belgian beer fan
My family and I stopped in for lunch. We’ve been to the Newark and West Chester locations before, but htis was our first visit to the Lancaster site. Of the three locations we’ve been to, this one is clearly the nicest looking (also the newest). Spacious interior with high ceilings, a beautiful wood bar with attractive shelving, and industrial light fixtures with a modern twist. Our server was very attentive and could not have been better - I wish I could remember his name because I would mention it. The food was very good. I had blackened ahi tuna, my sons both had pizza, my daughter thoroughly enjoyed the mac & cheese, and I wish I could remember what my wife ate, but I know she liked it! Nice selection of beers on tap. Samplers are reasonable at $1 each, and my wife was given a free sample before ordering a goblet of their quad. Overall, a very enjoyable experience, and we will certainly be back again the next time we visit Lancaster.
Stopped here on a Friday night and was worried when we walked in and saw people standing there. It was only a 15 minute wait for the dining room, you could walk into the cocktail area with open seats and they sat us immediately on the patio. Our waitress seemed to know a lot about the beers, but mostly sounded like a script. Food was great. You must try the sweet potato french fries with all the dippin sauces. Nice selection of beers. tried the sampler. 8 beers for 8 bucks. Not bad. About 6 or 7 seasonals along with the 6 normal drafts. There was a bottle cellar of about eight beers, some vintage. Even a cask on tap. Overall, very nice time and would visit again. A bit pricey, but I do not mind that if it is worth it. Some of the lighter beers were thin, but the seasonals stole the show for me.
Located in downtown Lancaster, across from Franklin and Marshall college. Surprisingly the crowd when I was there on a Sunday night was a little older (definitely not a college crowd atmosphere). They had a huge tap list, maybe 15 beers, ranging from an imperial stout to a pumpkin stout to a number of Belgian offerings, etc. The pumpkin stout I got was the best I’ve ever had. Wow. It was so good I had to get 2 pints, instead of trying something else. The food here is great (I got the chicken pot pie). Overall, it is on the pricier side, but you can’t get much better quality than this. I’ve only been to one other Iron Hill location (Wilmington), and this is pretty comparable although they had more beers on tap here, so I guess I would say it’s better. A great must stop!
Similar to the other location i visited a few years back, this is a modern and vibrant brewpub with great beers, lovely food selection, good service and good sampling opportunities (1$ a 4 on. sample)...As with all IH locations, a must go!
This 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 don’t necessarily agree that it’s 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 I’ve 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. I’ll be back when the casked Krypotnite is tapped.
Brewpub restaurant. Nice place, good bar area with tv’s and nice high top tables. Not a quiet place for a beer, but for the style and what it is, I enjoyed it. Food was excellent, but expensive. Beers were quite good and service was good. Given the type of place, I wasn’t surprised that the wait staff didn’t know much about the beers... but if you accept that and the pricing, it’s a good place.
My first trip to IH. Impressed by the service, attentive but not pushy. I hat the aha tuna salad, which was nicely done. Had the poprter and the American Brown Ale, the latter was great, the porter was OK. Prices were reasonable, $34 for lunch for two. Will go back again.
