I have frequented Iron Hill many times and always had a good time. Tonight we went for dinner and ate at the upstairs deck. They also have 2 large dining rooms and a lower deck. All of the seating is nice, but if the weather is nice I recomend one of the decks.
The service is usually pretty good, tonight was no exception. The waitress was nice and knowledgeable about their products. The appetizer of stuffed mushrooms was to die for, and we both really enjoyed our dinners.
Both the beer and the food menu are varied and large. They had about 10 styles on tap tonight. The food and the beer are both reasonable for the high quality you get.

My "local" Iron Hill. Always a pleasant experience with great food and brews. The first time visitor should partake in the flight where you can sample the standard brews, as well as the seasonal Belgian and one seasonal on their rotation. I chose the Abbey Dubbel (Belgian Seasonal) on my past visit and it is highly recommended. This time, I took home the growler of Russian Imperial Stout to enjoy at my leisure. A very spacious dining area compared to others, but reservations are STRONGLY recommended!

neat little spot near the river front. big wooden bar with the tanks visible as you walk in. huge facility/restaurant. good selection of brews, all the standard stuff a light, a red, a porter, an ipa, etc etc etc. they also has a rotating belgian selection (tripel), and 4 or 5 excellent seasonals, including a maple coffee winter warmer in a cask with a cinnamon rim glass (an experiance to say the least). all beers were above average and the appetizer i has was excellent (lamb meatballs). good service. patrons tended to be city suit types, on the stuffy side, but not dicks to me in any way, just not a blues bar where everyone is baked. good spot to bring a date maybe. excellent bottled selections for purchase and reasonable prices all around. will be here again

Cask Conditioned: Browntown Brown (6.4%) - Creamy smooth, light carbonation and big chocolate malt flavors - outstanding.
On Tap: Iron Hill Light Lager (4.0%, 10 IBU), Vienna Red Lager (4.4%, 22 IBU), Rasberry Wheat (4%, 20 IBU), Ironbound Ale (APA, 4.7%, 30 IBU ), Pig Iron Porter (5.0% 40 IBU), Schwarzbier (5.4%), Browntown Brown and Abbey Dubbel (7%)
A chalkboard in the downstairs bar area identifies what's in fermentation (an Oktoberfest and an Imperial American Red), when brewed, when due and upcoming specials (Pumkin Ale).
There's a medium sized bar area to your left when you first walk in with booth seating, a number of tall bar tables (for 2 or 4) and a U-shaped bar that might fit about 18.
Decent music plays softly, but is easily drowned out by conversation around the bar. Clientele is an urban mix of mostly professionals.

Atmosphere- Clearly a beer-oriented establishment. Nice bar, fantastic riverfront deck... and a beer-centric focus. Out of all the brewpub chains I have been to, this one definitely offers the best atmosphere.
Quality- Commitment to quality shows through in every aspect of Iron Hill... clean facilities, clean utensils, clean draft lines, solid information on their beer and brewing process. Kudos to the staff and management at Iron Hill.
Service- Very good service. Our server was very knowledgable about beer and the craft beer industry as a whole, which was a plus.
Selection- Given the fact that you'll only have Iron Hill's beer here, the selection was impressive... with a range of American, English, Belgian and German styles.
Food- The food ranged from good to very good, depending on the dish. The menu was diverse, and some dishes were even prepared with beer. The high food prices, however, kept the food rating from being a 4.5.

Not a bad place - the atmosphere is a little spare and cold (sometime literally), but the beer is pretty good, the service is quite good, and the food is decent. Plus it is in a place that is not crawling with great brewpubs and bars, so it has that going for it.
The building is large and modern - steel, wood, and openness. It feels sort of disorienting, particularly upstairs (the downstairs dining room is a bit more intimate). There is also a nice outdoor seating area, both upstairs and down, though the Wilmington waterfront is not a thing of beauty.
The food is straight-up pub food - burgers, sandwiches, and soups and so forth. All are decently executed, but I find there is a tendency toward thickness - it doesn't feel fresh and zippy.
The beer is up and down. The Pale Ales are quite good - hoppy and crisp, but the lagers tend toward the bland. The Belgians and specialty beers (like the wee heavy) are forgettable.
The standout is the service - the staff knows the beer and is quote friendly and helpful. They don't move particularly quickly, but their fun and fairly efficient.

In case you didn't know this already, Wilmington is dead for beer culture. Iron Horse is on the river and despite being a chain, they do brew some nice house stuff. I have never been able to get the quad, but the maibock I had this time was really good. One of those places that brews right to the style but amps it up more than other places like it. The food is quite good as well and the service was always fine. It's a good kind of place to take some family to get a decent burger and salad and a solid beer that won't scare anyone off.
