Overpriced!

For a college town restaurant, you would think that prices would be more budge friendly. Understandable that the wait to get in was a while, but the service was quite slow. The waitress was pleasant, but it took forever to get our food. When we asked, we were told there was a large party and... read more

Iron Hill Brewery has a great location in downtown Newark, and the craft beers are great. I also love the food that they serve.

Lunch fare included burgers at nearly $15. Very limited vegetarian choices. Didn't taste their beer. Overall, food was tasty but over priced.

Solid service, interesting food options, and a great selection of beer. Never had a bad lunch or dinner at Iron Hill.

We were on a long trip from Virginia to New York and stumbled across this place. They had some great malty non IPAs and good food. If ever headed that way would seek it out next time. Eventually found out there are more of them throughout Deleware and PA and some have even more accessible locations related to our travels.... More

Our favorite of all the Iron Hill locations! This restaurant is our go to for dinner any night of the week. We feel like regulars even though we visit 2 or 3 times a month. Great food, great beer and really fantastic service! I often send friends & business colleagues to Iron Hill!

I ate here for a business lunch and had the grilled salmon salad. It was excellent! Nice atmosphere in the restaurant and good service.

Great service, great food. Their beer selection is great. I always get the flight so i can try a lot of beers at once. Their sweet potato fries are amazing. The best I have ever had. They come with a bunch of dipping sauces. Their southwestern salad is good--not great. They do have great burgers though.

IHB Newark has been my go-to place since it opened in '96. Always consistently good food and outstanding beer. Considering the glut of restaurants and bars on Main St., Iron Hill has the best overall experience. They always respond to customers' suggestions, and have gotten better over the years. Even compared to the other IHB's (of which I've been to... More
