Nothing very exciting about this places atmosphere. Seems sort of generic...like if Chilis made their own beer. Too sterile for a brewpub...lacks character.

They had about 10 brews on tap. All seemed decent enough.

Large menu to choose from and food seemed good. Among our food ordered:
Sweet potato fries: good
Ribs: good
Pizza: very good
Mussels: very good

Service got knocked because at one point we had empty beer glasses and had to actually go and find out waiter!!! Anytime you have to organize a search party to get a beer it is not a good thing!

Overall, a decent place. Not one I would go out of my way to visit, but if you are in the neighborhood then it is worth a stop.

This was my first visit to an Iron Hill. It was close to the hotel I was crashing at, so it seemed like I might as well.

Nice interior. If you've seen one, you've seen them all really. I have passed by many at this point and seen what they looked like, though never went in. There is definitely a formula and system to everything, which is fine. I am glad they've kept a bit of an air of refinement to things. Selection was okay.

I honestly could have dealt with more choices on-tap. Bottles were in the house. I picked up an RIS to take with me.

Food was good enough. About what I'd expect to match the decor.

Service was fine. It was the end of the night, so I think the bartender was wrapping up and ready to get the hell out of there. He didn't seem to care too much about what was going on.

A pleasant enough experience.

Been to this place several times before and wasn't much impressed with the beer quality. Its been maybe two years since my last visit and the beer as far as selection and quality are much better.
Took the wife and fam after church there for dinner and while the wife and kids scoped out the stores I stayed back and seeked out a booth in the bar area. Ten minutes later score, see it pays to be a beer drinker.

Sevice from the staff was good, but it wasn,t too crowded either.

Food was good kids got the standard. Thier meals came with maybe 10 french fries, seriously 10.

Had three beers thier house porter, pils, and a seasonal rojo grande( imp. red) all were very good inquality and taste hovering in the 4pt area.
I think in the future we'll be going back.

I am a huge fan of the Iron Hill chain but this is my least favorite outpost, though the beer was much improved on my last visit here on 3/18/11.

Layout is quite similar to the Media location, with a large u-shaped bar in the middle and dining areas behind and to the side. The beer definitely took a step backward during the transition to the latest head brewer. Not enough seasonals, and mostly underwhelming. My last visit featured Ramrod, the best beer I have had there in the last couple of years. So I am hopeful this is a sign of good things to come.

I find the bartenders here to be generally douchey and slow moving. On my most recent visit, more than half of the bar patrons had either empty uncleared plates, empty unfilled beer glasses or both, while the staff did not appear to be breaking a sweat.

Food is very good, as at all IH branches, but a bit pricey for a brewpub. I love the chain and I am glad there are four other locations that are closer to my house.
