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.
Loved everything about this place. The decor reminded me of a restoration furniture The square bar is very conducive for conversations with random folks. The service at the bar was outstanding. The pizza, especially with barley dough, was flavorful with fresh ingrediants nicely prepared. They had 10-11 things on tap including a cask-conditioned, a couple of belgian styles, some hoppy bastards, and a barleywine. I will definitely come back if I’m in the area.
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. The best beer selection of the Iron Hills.
I go here often. Generally the service is very good because I heard they take care of their employees. The food is always satisfying, my favorite is the sweet potato fries. Usually a good selection on tap, the most recent one I had was their barleywine. Definitely recommend going their if you’re in town, its right in the heart of West Chester.
Great brewpub, super vibe, and really cool staff. Enjoyed all the brew I had here and the head brewer gave me a 750ml from his personal stash! What a guy! Nice selection of taps lots of cool stuff on. Can’t comment on the food, but it smelled good. Cool place.
i like the dark wood look. bar service is always great...most of those bartenders have been around for a while and they do a great job. food here is very good though a tad on the pricey side. house beers are average but brewers specialties and seasonals are usually very good.
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.
Good value for most of the beers (all were under 4.5 / pint). The bartender was pretty knowledgeable and friendly. Did not have any food at this location, but I assume it’s comparable to the other Iron Hills. The setting has a semi-city, semi-small college town feel to it and the remote parking isn’t super convenient (unless you luck out w/ a nearby meter). I wasn’t impressed with the beers here, although the selection was pretty large. All the standard flagship beers, one on cask, and three seasonal / specials.
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.

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.
