We arrived at 6:15 pm for dinner, they asked if we had reservations we said no, so they said it will serve you in 1:15 minutes, we checked at 7:15 just in case, at 7:30 again at 7:45 again and at this time I told them that it's been two hours and the girl hostess instead of apologizing said too...

Been going to this restaurant for years both when I was a student and now as an Alum, who occasionally stops by. Iron Hill has always had great beer (try the Pig Iron Porter) and great food. The specials are great, such as the $24 prime rib night, but the normal menu is also spectacular. Parking is bad, but it's... More

Large menu, comfortable booths. Wide range of choices - I had two appetizers - fish taco was delicious , bacon wrapped scallops could have been cooked a little longer.

My Wife and I tend to visit here more in the summer or in between semesters when the "Locals." can take back our town. Don't get me wrong their are a lot of advantages to living in a college town. But parking shortages and long waits at restaurants aren't two of them. Once you actually make it to a table... More

We go to Iron Hill Brewery when the collage kids are on break. Then it is a much quieter place. The service is very good. They always get the order the way we want it. The choose of the beer is great also. If you like beer , this is the place to go.

I definitely enjoy craft beer, but I'm a wine person, so I didn't come here totally for the beer. I have read and heard the food was good. And I have to say they exceeded our expectations. Great menu with lots of diversity, and we enjoyed everything we had. We tried a number of their craft beers that was very... More

Solid craft beer, great atmosphere in the heart of downtown Newark. Limited to their own beers which are generally very good to excellent IMO. Consistently great, friendly service!
