One of the Best Brew Pubs that I have ever visited. In my two trips to Iron Hill the Brews and Eats have been Excellent - these guys definitely have figured out how to design a great menu and craft solid beers. As an added bonus visit Baldwin’s Book Barn just a few miles away - you will not be disappointed.
Really, really nice food, that I also enjoyed as leftovers both 1 and 2 days later. that may be the first time I enjoyed a 2 day old sandwich - cause the bread etc usually sucks, but damn, their food is so fine even that ages well. Excellent service - the server even delayed the cooking of our entrees because he noticed I was taking my time with all the beers and hadn’t even got very far with our nachos (hey... I didn’t want to ruin my palate!) A mistake got made in the shift change and I got the wrong pizza but I’m not deducting any points for that, that kind of thing always happens on a shift change and, frankly I think I ended up with a better pizza than I’d ordered. They are now bottling. for now it’s for a wine-style service, but soon should be available to go (awesome trade bait!) I was quite impressed with a number of the beers and with the dizzying 11 varieties to sample, I never got to the bottles. Nice comfortable ambiance. I have to completely disagree with illnismitty, I would go here over victory any time. Victory has beer you can get anywhere (and these days the quality is just OK), their food pretty much sucks, the ambiance is terrible. Iron hill is a better experience all around.

Great place to have a few pints & enjoy a meal, service is very good & friendly, the Imperial IPA was excellent last time I was there, the Pig Iron Porter is essential, the Ironbound Ale is excellent as well, the ESB is great too if you’re lucky enough for it to be there while you are, food is above average, pizzas are great, always specials going on, great place. UPDATE, June 2011: I feel compelled to write an update for Iron Hill’s West Chester location. Even though all the statements I wrote above are true, they don’t do any sort of justice for this brewpub. I have tried a ton of new beers from Iron Hill WC in the last few weeks, and they have all been stellar. The food is much better than what I made it sound like. It is truely outstanding cuisine. The bruchetta is awesome, the calamari is tasty, and the NY strip is one of the best steaks I have ever had. Order it medium and you’ll get a soft but warm pink middle that just melts in your mouth. And the seasoning on the steak is delicious, along with the mashed potatoes, mushrooms and the cheese sauce. The service is top-notch. I don’t think I have gotten any better service anywhere else. Eveyone at Iron Hill WC knows how to take care of their customers. I’ll be heading back there for their beer and for dinner every time I get the chance!

Finally made it to Iron Hill after what seems like years of intentions. Having only heard positives about the place, it definitely lived up to my lofty expectations. Surprisingly much larger than I would have guessed. Had the burger, which was excellent. Top notch beers for a brewpub chain as well. I will definitely be returning.
To Newark s twin town for a visit (they really do have a lot in common), and to another IH sibling. Sunday after Christmas and the town was deserted, so no problem with parking. Clean and wooded atmosphere, mood lighting and ambient warmth. Food was typical Iron Hill, i.e., good and tasty but not particularly cheap. Had only one of the commons (the Vienna) and four, yes, four seasonals on rotation. Service was great, knowledgeable, and even somewhat flirty. Felt catered to, had a great time.
Visited during RBSG bus tour 2011. Pretty sweet place and I really wish we had some Iron Hill’s down south. Maybe I could franchise? Great service, above average to great beers, and lots of younger folks. I should move to Philly.
