We didn't have a reservation and we waited about 20 minutes on a Sunday night for a table for 6. The brewery equipment is easily viewed through the large windows in the back. The bar is a nice wide open space with a couple of friendly bar tenders pulling the house make brews. The beer board is full of interesting names for the seasonal offerings and even lists upcoming releases.
We get seated and the server is quick to get us started on some samples of their offerings. She is knowledgeable about the brews and can make suggestions to taste for the less beer savvy folks at the table. My sampler of 6 seasonals leaves me with a dilemma, but I ultimately decided on a pint of the Hopweissen and am not a bit disappointed. Others at the table enjoy the Wit and the Irish.
Soups and salads arrive to a salivating crew and they look and smell great. My seafood bisque was rich and absolutely delicious. I also stole a bit of the mushroom soup which was excellent as well. The pizza was enough to share and met all expectations. Even though desserts were tempting, we were stuffed and passed.
We dropped in to Iron Hill as a suggestion from our local hosts. It is definitely a place to take visitors regardless of their appreciation of beer. If they happen to be beer lovers you will get that many more high fives for the choice. Overall this is an excellent place to have dinner and a flight of good beer. If I lived locally, I would have my own barstool at the bar to keep up to date on the fresh beers and collaborations.

My wife and I visit this Iron Hill location on a monthly basis. The food is consistently good but the beer selection is top notch. I always like to try the cask selection and this past time it did not disappoint. The McMaster is always a favorite but recently I have been engrossed in their IPA varieties. I have waited for a full year of visits to rate this establishment and their beer selection is enough of a reason to go back again and again.

Odd little industrial park like building, unassuming from the outside. Enter to a large bar area to the right, the bar itself is moderately sized but lots of high top seating, somewhat cramped. Were sat in a non-nondescript center room at a four-top, despite lots of available booth seating along the entire left side. Some of the tables were actually plastic folding tables with black table cloths - I may have walked out if that's what i was seated at. Lots brick, dark wood, copper, metal and overall industrial feel. Brew house in the rear and long open kitchen on the right hand side behind the bar.
Iron Hill always has a nice mix of styles between their regular and seasonal beers. Regular beers tend to be a bit lighter for the masses, while some bolder options exist on the season side. Some seasonals this time included 2-3 big IPAs, an Oatmeal Stout, and a pilsner. All beers very fresh and constructed well. $5 for a regular brewpub pint is about a $1 higher than expected, $6-$7 for a seasonal also seams pricey. Did not check the bottle list this time.
Food was fantastic, great appetizers and burgers this time around. Expansive menu for a bar, so most is probably massed produced, but done perfectly.
Service was a bit off. Took 10+ minutes to place a drink order. Pacing of order was slightly off and server kept clearing unfinished plates. Server was friendly though.
All in all, have visited a few of these locations and have noted how each new location becomes bigger in size than the others, but the emphasis always shifts from the size of the bar area to the size dining room. Still solid - would recommend. While the beers were a bit better, overall id rank it right behind the Chestnut Hill and Wilmington locations.

Dinner at the bewpub while staying in nearby Cherry Hill, NJ. Very nice set up and experience.
Bright, airy, open room with lots of tables and a long bar. Lively ambience, fun vibe in the room for a Tuesday night. Lots of tables, but didn't feel like I was on top of anyone.
Great selection of beers. A standard 5 that seemed to be always on draft, along with several seasonals. Overall i think I had 10 to choose from. Sampler was available. I had an amber ale and a the porter - both very good. Also a board in the main room detailing what is on the way (fermenting, aging, etc)
Food was very good. Extensive menu, lots of choices, big and small. I went simple, but certainly had lots to choose from. All were pleased with their food.

This is a big place, but still gives a commitment to service. Largest Iron Hill I have seen. Tons of special edition bottles to bring home. I was impressed. Local offerings on tap were OK, including the seasonals, though the seasonals are often interesting and plentiful. Decent prices for taps. Bottles are on the pricier side, that’s PA, and Iron Hill. Growler fills available. It was lunchtime so it was busy. Normally I prefer a smaller place, but this is a good stop and certainly the best in the area.
