We had looked forward to going to Iron Hill last Saturday. Knowing they had "call ahead", we did that around 5 pm. They said the current wait was 1 hour. So we waited at home about 20 minutes before heading out. We arrived about 40 minutes after we called. Then we had to wait in the restaurant for over an... More

Having been there a couple of times, I can honestly say that I love this place. I am not a fan of chain restaurants, but the food is excellent, the service terrific and the beer is great. The waitstaff will help you pick out a beer to your liking or to pair with your meal. Its great for family night,... More

It has been awhile since we have eaten here. We went on a Saturday night without a reservation. the place was hopping! The wait for a table for three of us would have been 1 1/2 hours. Luckily we declined and waited for a high top table in the bar section to open up (these are 1st come, 1st served).... More

I have been to Iron Hill many times. My trips have included business lunches and dinners as well as personal trips there with friends and family. We have had a Christmas gathering there for the past three years and have returned due to the food, pricing, and service.. The food is always fresh and prepared well. Plenty of beer choices... More

If you like craft type beers you'll be happy. The food was average pub franchise type food. Service was a disappointment. They had no idea how to attend to a table and handed food and drinks out from the end of a table for 8, asking all to pass them around to whomever had ordered. It was chaotic and the... More

This was our first visit to Iron Hill after 30 years of visiting Lancaster. We decided to give it a try on one of the busiest nights, of course! We were lucky to get a close parking spot in there big lot. When we ventured in it was jammin. We knew we wanted to sit at the bar so headed... More

Very good experience every time! We prefer multiple appetizers vs. a "dinner." Can't comment on a full entre meal. Consistency is paramount for me when frequenting the same eatery. Prices are mid-range and definitely a value for the quality of food and service received. Love to sit outside during summer months even though it is along the street it is... More

Great atmosphere . The parking can be a little tough. Like I said Gumbo was great . The spicy burger was also excellent . The home made birch was good . Service was also great . A little price but I think it was worth it . Keep in mind you get what you pay for .

I've always experienced good food and service. Love the sweet potato fries with the sauce. Excellent cosmos too.
