You really cannot go wrong with Iron Hill. The consistency of their food quality and preparation is among the best on Main. Street The menu offers something for everyone. For the area, wine prices are a bit on the high side. Of course, most don't go there for the wine. Seasonal beer selections are outstanding, and this is particularly true... More

Went for lunch when visiting our daughter at UD. Fast and friendly service in a nice outdoor seating area. The seafood pot pie, chicken pot pie and baby back ribs were all very good. A little pricey, but that's the norm in the area. Will go back.

I don't consider myself a "beer snob" but I do enjoy tasting different brews and I was not bowled over by the selection at Iron Hill. With that being said our food experience was great and we would go back.

the atmosphere at iron hill is top notch - it's usually filled with people but quiet enough to hear yourself and others talk. the service and food are always excellent. the beer samplers are a great addition for curious beer enthusiasts.

We reserved in advance (a must for busy college weekends) and our reservation time was honored. This is a big, noisy, upbeat place-friendly and very casual. The food was tasty and basic-not at all fancy, with friendly, attentive servers. It's a good family place, definitely not for a romantic date night. I would go back.

All I can say is the seafood pot pie is Fricken awsome, the beer selection is great and the atmosphere is very electric.

If you like craft beer and the foods that go well with it, this is the place to go. Just know that it is in the heart of Main Street by the University of Delaware, so it can be quite busy. The burger options are plenty, the nachos are huge, and the beers are homemade. Just try to keep room... More

Was at the University of Delaware for a conference and met up with a few delegates the last night, where we decided to go to the Ironhill Brewery. The place was packed with television sets everywhere showing NFL, MLB and other sports. They have a great (in my opinion) selection of beer. You MUST try the pumpkin beer. It is... More

After visiting Iron Hill Brewery numerous times, it just is not what you expect. The beers are brewed in house but the selection is the same for a lot of the time. The food is mediocre and way over priced for the quality and quantity. The menu changes frequently as well.

Great restaurant and food. Newark aggressive parking regulations drives away customers forever. How about waking up to 2016 by demanding some modern parking apps in this town?
