i was here on a saturday night and the bar was empty the seating buy the bar was a little crowded lots of kids i dont know why they dont sit in the dinning room. sat at the bar had a couple of beers witch were only ok nothing to make me even want to come back. the foo i though was verry goo one thing that stood out was the cheese steak egg rolls were awesome. the service was bad they had two bartenders and my wife and i were the only ones at the bar but still had to wait. the place was nice. i may go back for the food not the beer or the service.

I stopped here after attending the Victory Fall Fest.
I had a pint of the Pale Ale and an Entree consisting of a Fried Chicken Breast with Mashed Potatoes and a Corn-Leek Gravy. The dinner Entree was great, and I enjoyed it throughly.
The beer I had was disappointing. I was curious how their other brews held up to the style, so I asked for a sample of their IPA.
I won't review these beers individually since I didn't really drink enough of either to warrant a fair review; however, I just wasn't impressed with either.
This place is GREAT if you want to go to a nice fun restaurant and get some freshly made local beer. If you're a beer snob though, I'd have to say you'll probably think they're nothing special.

Great looking establishment inside and out. Service has always been a bit lacking everytime I go, maybe because I've sat at the tables near the bar and not the restaraunt tables? Have found myself sitting there starving waiting for food, or looking for a refill many a time (have on more then one occasion just gone to the bar myself because it was taking so long).
Food is tremendous - there is some really great stuff here. Prices a little pricey, but you are getting great stuf ffor what you pay for. Menu is small and changes between lunch/dinner but I'd say this place is quality over quantity.
Selection of beers above average. The standard Iron Hill six are always there, and seasons always on top. Would like to see more cask conditioned offerings,

Called in sick to work on Columbus Day (since my wife had off) to take a brewpub trip to the Phoenixville area. Stopped here for a quick beer before meeting some friends at Sly Fox right up the road.
It was pretty dead inside, though it was a Monday afternoon. The main room was clean and comfortable with a long bar and high-back barstools. The deep mahogany wood decor offered a somewhat upscale atmosphere, and the sloped copper ceiling with fans was quite interesting. We sat and the bar, and there was a beer menu with their offerings right in front of me. I craved a lager, so I ordered a pint of their Lodestone Lager, which is a Helles German-style lager (4.2% ABV, 25 IBU). It was rather light, but crisp and clean with mild carbonation and a semi-sweet palate. The nose was faintly bready, and the hop profile pretty laid back and predominantly Saaz. My wife opted for a Roggenbock (7% ABV), an unfiltered rye beer with wheat malt that she enjoyed.
The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Their beer selection included the Roggenbock, a light lager, raspberry wheat, lager, pale ale, IPA and porter - a pretty run-of-the-mill selection. Beers were available in 10-, 16- and 22-oz. sizes, as well as pitchers. Pints were $4.50, which I thought was a pit pricey for beer made on premesis.
Overall, it was a pleasant enough visit, but we were there for a short amount of time. I would like to go back and sample some more beers and try some food.

There always seems to be an abundance of "beer snobs"/ hipsters at any of the iron hill's I've been to.
The food is usually spot on (love the pizzas), and the service is mostly very good.
As an alumnus of U of DE, I've been enjoying their beers as long as I've legally been allowed to drink them. Pig Iron Porter and Anvil Ale have sentimental value beyond the usual ratings.
Overall, I enjoy going here. I'd rather go at an off time to avoid the crowds and just enjoy the food and the beers.

Likely the best, and smallest of the Iron Hills I have visited. Smaller size creates a great ambiance in the bar, and the fact that it is smoke-free, and a brand new building, really creates for a great dining experience. The bar is not big enough for this place to be a watering hole. You are highly expected, in my opinion, to get a full meal if you sit at the high-top tables. You cannot go wrong, however, with their menu. It is their mainstay, and they make no bones about it that this is a restaurant first, that happens to brew its own beer. While it may be tricky, parking is as good as it gets in Phoenixville. I should know, I live there. They provide their own lot for parking across the street that the building developer owns. This is a great place for my family to bring others, any time of year, any time of day except dinner. It is so wildly popular, there have been 2 hour waits to get a table. Cant fault them for wanting to run at capacity. A strong addition to a strong entertaining town.
