Stopped in for lunch at my local Iron Hill. The space is fairly new and it shows. Very modern and upscale feel for a brewpub. Makes sense since it's located beside an expensive private college. Service was prompt and seemed knowledgeable about the beer. Food was good, although I only got a crab quesadilla, so that may not be a great indicator. The regular beer list (pale lager, amber lager, pale ale, etc) isn't overly impressive but the seasonal list is fantastic. I had a cask conditioned Rye IPA which was outstanding. I also sampled their Belgian Tripel, Berliner Weiss, and the Shokolad Stout. All three were delicious but the Shokolad Stout, a chocolate RIS, was amazing. I got a growler to go ($20 growler included). They also were serving a German Pils, a hoppy American Wheat, a Belgian Summer Ale and a Sweet Stout. Overall, a great lunch at a great brewpub.

Overall I do enjoy Iron Hill for the food. Iron Hill Brewery does pump out beer but I'm typically not impressed or in the mood to drink it, unless I get my hands on one of their seasonal bottles that usually are available closer to Thanksgiving. The food here is typically fantastic and reasonably priced. I would recommend anyone to visit Iron Hill for some great food and maybe for a beer or two, but when the Fridge is right down the road I will sacrifice Iron Hill's food for their selection.

I was vacationing in Lancaster with my wife and young daughter, and we were looking for a nice place to go out for my wife's birthday that was also kid friendly. This restaurant was on a list of choices reccommended by the hotel where we were staying. Being a BA member I was immediately interested when I saw a brew pub on the list. My wife (a picky eater) checked out the menu and commented on how copious and interesting the choices were. She was also impressed that they had an ample kid's menu. I checked out the beer menu and it was all systems go.
Let me tell you that this place did not dissappoint. The food was fantastic and well priced. Not cheap, but by no means expensive..just a really solid value. The type of menu where you can eat well for not a lot of money or eat really well if you wanted to splurge. The atmosphere was upscale and classy, yet noisy enough that you wouldn't be embarassed to bring your kids.
Being predominately an IPA drinker I decided to stray away from my comfort zone and try something else since the menu of brews was so comprehensive. I had the porter..I think it was called the pigiron porter, and the saison. Both were great. And for $5 for 16oz a good bargain as well.
And to top it off they brought a piece of delicious chocolate mousse cake for my wife's birthday-FOC. Brews, food, service, experience..all great! I'd go back any chance I got and would recommend this place in a heartbeat...to anyone really...a place that has something for everyone. Well done!!

An exceptional place. Definitely an upscale feel. Large, spacious rooms, but sound levels aree moderate.
Great beer selection. Both tastes and samplers. The ability to get reasonably priced ($1.50) samplers was great. (And the serving w/ labels hepled!) After tastings, my wife enjoyed the Rauchtoberfest and I loved the Iron Bound Ale.
Our server was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Service was prompt and unobtrusive.
Food awesome. Bisque, pizza, salad.
Just want them to open near me in New York!

This review will be based on two trips, one was for an event and the other was after a trip to Spring House.
The building looks big from the outside, and it does not lie. There is ample seating areas inside. The bar is very long and could seat about 20 people. There are tables in the bar area as well as two back/side rooms that could seat a lot.
Everything I've tasted, both beer and food, have been to the freshest quality. The place comes off as semi-upscale and they do not disappoint.
The beer selection is always incredible. I visited on their Hop Attack party which featured the release of Kryptonite along with nine other hoppy beers. They also featured their year-rounds too. Amazing! During the other visit they were boasting the Berlinerweiss, Tripel, and a Rye Belgian IPA. They fill growlers, only if they boast the Iron Hill logo. Most of the time you will be able to find a few bottles for sale as well. Although most bottles come close to and eclipse the $20 mark.
Along with a top-notch beer selection, Iron Hill displays a wide variety of food plates. The pizza here does not disappoint and it's the perfect size for one person. In the shared plates section of the menu they offer nachos, which was enough to feed three grown men on one trip. I've also been able to try a quesadilla as well as their bisque. The menu is large and it would be hard to find something that you didn't want to try.
I have never had a problem with the service here. On the event day, we spent time at the bar as well as a table. The quality of service did not change. During my other trip when I ordered my food and the bartender brought it out, she noticed how small the portion was. She offered to give me a complimentary choice of a side salad or a cup of soup. Very nice of her!
My only complaint with Iron Hill is their prices. Both food and beer prices are on steep side. This will not discourage me from coming back. I've already planned a reunion dinner here with my college roommates. Iron Hill is a nice place to have great food and great beer. Don't forget about the Spring House Taproom just a few blocks away; a deadly Lancaster combo!
