Downtown, college town, one of multiple Iron Hill locations in the area.

Outdoor tables and seeting as you enter...comfortable, clean, well maintained sort of place. Decent sized seating area, raised bar tables and nice wooden bar tot he right as you enter.

Extensive food menu, featuring a "healthy" menu, which I greatly appreciated as well as the burger, soups, salads and other assorted entrees that you would expect in a quality brew pub and restaurant.

Beer wise they are putting out a half dozen house regular brews supplemented by another 6 seasonal options. Add to that about a dozen of their brews available in bottles (to drink there and/or to take home, and they have your beer choices covered quite well.

Well run joint, you get the feeling that they know what they are doing and they are having a fun time doing it. Well worth a visit

Went to the one in Newark, DE right by the University of Delaware. This was right around Easter 2015 so I think school was a bit slow at the time and the place was about 75% full. Noise was acceptable, service was attentive, and the beers were OK. Maholo, Apollo! was our favorite. Had the Pig Iron Porter on cask and it seemed weak.

The place looked like a normal restaurant + bar. There wasn't really anything that made it stand out or seem like a brew pub, I think the Wilmington location is better for that. Food was actually pretty good, though.

Unfortunately it seemed like this place is a restaurant first and then a brewery. None of the beer strayed away from what would be considered old standards. IPA's, Lagers, Wheat, no stouts on tap. The pizza I ordered was great and the food along is worth it, but don't expect anyone pushing the envelope of beer.
