When I first walked in I thought this was going to be another chain restaurant with adequate food. What I had was a delicious outstanding meal for awesome price. The wait staff was great. Isaiah was so kind and took care of my wife for her surprise birthday at the spur of the moment . Will definitely go back.

Absolutely awesome place. It is now my go to spot. Had the pub burger with egg and it was perfectly made-medium rare. Had a tasting of several beers brewed in house and the dunkel was my favorite so far. Willbe going back Very soon.

It was really hard to really review. There was a fire alarm going off as soon as our food was brought to the table and we were practically pushed out the door.

Had high expectations but food was mediocre, as was service. Tried 3 apps, salad, different main dishes, nothing special at all. Server was nice, just not around much. Dirty dishes kept on table throughout meal, had to wait quite some time for refills, check etc. Hubs did like his beer tho!

This place happened to be across the street from the Marriott we were staying at — glad we went there!
The food was very good and so were the local beers on tap.
I am a fan!

Bel locale e ottime birre. Servizio molto superficiale disattento. Cibo altalenante, buoni ribs, tonno arrivato freddo e con liquido nel piatto. Da ritornare per le birre e per qualche piatto non elaborato.

Was a very good restaurant. It is a chain so it’s not authentic food from philadelphia which wasn’t a big deal for my party. Service could’ve been better but it was completely fine for a quick meal after a long drive. Would go back.

Definitely come for their beers. I've been going to various Iron Hill brewery locations over the years, and their beer selection keeps expanding and improving. Reasonably priced, and tasty. Get a flight or two! The food is good, not stand out, and I wouldn't go out of my way for it, but if I'm near a location, I would definitely consider it.

Solid for what it is - a regional chain. Good for a work group who appreciates beer and isn't looking for a gourmet meal. Food was decent but not spectacular. Beer was good. Seating is comfortable, noise level is acceptable and there are TVs tuned to sports.

My medium well Pub burger arrived nearly rare. The second one I received was perfect and really really good. So flavorful. I wish they’d gotten it right the first time because it was so very delicious. The homemade chips were excellent too. Server was a little slow on bringing bill and checking on us. Our server and the staff we interacted were all very nice. I’d probably try them again.

Great location to eat lunch/dinner if you have plans in the city. Our server was enthusiastic about the beer selections and allowed our party to taste several of his favorites. The burgers were very good. The teryaki chicken was just ok.

It was pretty good to catching post college with girlfriends. The food was pretty good, I wasn’t a fan of the Pub Burger only cause personal opinion on the bacon, but the fries and the beer pretzels were good! Our waitress was very sweet and nice!

The server was a nice guy, but it was not very attentive - too much time in between ordering and delivery. You need wither more servers or a food expediter, to get food/drink to your customers quicker. Also, the huge LED screens next door cast a horrific glare - WAY TOO BRIGHT on the tables on that side of the restaurant. Need some room darkening shades that could block it.

Extremely poor service. Waiter didn’t place my main course order instead ordering a large salad instead of a side salad. Manager comped my beer, but that only offset the wrong salad. I will not go back.

Had eaten at several IRON HILL restaurants & they are good.

One in Ardmore gets more families w/kids so that can be a challenge.

One in town, is more adults.

Food very good & had bought several gift cards over the holidays
& every one was satisfied & happy w/that gift.

While the beer is good and plentiful, things didn't work out well for hot food at temperature. Two of our group got chicken pot pies and they came out warm, but not hot and they were afraid to send back to the kitchen.
Service was OK, but we didn't see much of our waiter.
Changes have been made in the menu, recently, which take the old, great, pizzas away in favor of new pre-fab flatbread pizzas that just aren't as good.
Iron Hill also still isn't embracing vegetarians/vegans even though, occasionally, they'll have a special event that may even sell-out for a vegan dinner . . . and then they go back to their same-old menu which is pretty tough for a vegetarian to navigate.
Used to be a favorite, but quickly waning with decisions by upper management.

We were very much impressed with the service. Was seated right away and was greeted with our server, Brian. He was attentive and any questions we had that he didn’t know he made it a point to find out the answer. He truly aimed to please and he did it well. The chicken pot pie was quite tasty, well seasoned loved the crust. Although the rib-eye steak was cooked a bit too much as they request was cook medium and it came well done.
