    My brewben sandwich was not grilled very well. Meat was cold cheese not melted. Really was disappointed and my wife’s salad was blah. Disappointed

    You may think this stupid, but I always liked IHB because they carried PEPSI products. I am not a drinker so my beverage of choice is PEPSI. I VERY FREQUENT establishments that carry what I drink. Unfortunately coke products give me migraines. Last night was my last night patronizing IHB, had I not been in the company of others, I would have to went elsewhere's.

    Servers were doing their best with the volume of guests and were incredibly professional, courteous, and apologetic. I assume they are generally understaffed and specifically in the bar (high-tops) area. We shared the nachos, which were good, but not quite the same level of quality that they used to be. Iron Hill's nachos used to be the best around, in our opinion, but now they are still good - but we miss when they were great. We also shared a chicken sandwich and we are always pleased that they bring the food out to you pre-split. The sandwich and fries were very good. The server(s) were all kind and doing the best that they could given the circumstances and volume of customers. Great live music on this first Thursday. Still loyal to IHB.

    I'm a new Iron Hill Member. Well, the server was fantastic, the best! But.... First, I was told that the sign up fee of $20 would be credited on our next (2nd) visit. It was not. Second, 2 Pinot Grigio 9oz wines - $15 each, and they were certainly NOT 9oz pours. Beer is on the higher cost side, though not for the member 22oz mug. Entrees were ok, but with no included salad or breads, like most places. The menu is pretty sparse for a restaurant in Media. Third, a live band with drums started up at around 6:30, dinner time, which we weren't expecting & could barely hear each other talk, and we were seated in the dining area, not the bar area, where they were playing. They were good, but too early & too loud. Not at that time, on a Thurs. evening. Spoiled the quieter atmosphere. And for all of this, a $100 tab plus tip. 2 entrees, 2 wines, 2 beers. Not my favorite restaurant now.

    no beer list provided with the menus. service was a little slow (to order, to come around for refills, to deliver food, to bring the check). table was set with an extra chair (crowded) which we moved ourselves. some kind of mixup in table numbers because runners kept bringing food to our table that was meant for the table behind us. server was very nice, place wasn't loud or overcrowded, food was good and well-priced.

    Ryan was a super waiter for our group of 8 friends. Everyone enjoyed their entree - each one something different - that were served all at once! We'll miss gathering at Iron Hill until the virus issues are over.

    Good food parking my just happened to go smoothly and server was pleasant friendly and checked on us often. Has never been to this location. Would def return for future dinners. Staff was pleasant. Bathrooms were clean. Prices reasonable and competitive. Only thing that did or meet my expectation level was that It was our birthdays so it would have been nice to have a nice dessert or surprise since the occasion was noted on the reservations.

    Iron Hill Media is a local favorite of ours. First are the servers...hands down they know their stuff from food to brews. We enjoy the seasonal and special occasion menu offerings and appreciate the pairings with their brews. Through Open Table I am always able to get a seat and normally in an area that I request due to my hearing impairment. Iron Hill Media will always be my local go-to!

    I met a girlfriend here for lunch. While the restaurant was rather empty, the music was super loud. We asked the waitress if it was possible to turn it down and she said nobody knew how. She seemed to say that it was louder than usual, but that there didn’t seem to be a way to adjust the volume. As for the food, I ordered the Brewben, which I found to be rather dry and lacking enough sauerkraut. I did enjoy the housemade chips and the Lodestone lager.

    The quality and value has gone down. The prices have increased for food and beer. Three in our party of six ordered burgers and the dishes arrived at the table with the buns cold. Not room temp, but actually cold. I think they must have come straight out of the fridge. One of the three burgers didn't come with a pickle (not the first time - same with our last visit at the beginning of the year). It's a shame because we've liked Iron Hill for the past 14 years we've been living in the area, but they're consistently inconsistent these days

    Went there before a theater show had great service. Beers selection was excellent. Food was good. Everyone had something different and all enjoyed their choices. They were very accommodating when I asked to switch from a booth to a table due to my sisters having difficulty getting up and down in their low booths. Next time I will remember to asks when I make my reservation. Will definitely go back!

    Reservation was for 7:00. Arrived at 6:45 and wasn’t seated until 7:15. Ordered a beer and five minutes later was told they had to change the tap. Five minutes after that was told that the keg was kicked. Ordered another beer and five minutes later was told they needed to change the keg. Five minutes later I got my beer. I thought that I may have been comped the beer but no dice. Generally these guys do a good job but it was busy and they let it show this time.

    Great for a casual Valentine's day. We ordered from the $45 for two Valentine's special dinner. We both had the Ahhi Tuna entree which was delicious. This was a good deal, with one appetizer, two entrees and a shared dessert. The cheesecake was good, but a little small for two. Waitress was attentive and helpful. All in all, very nice.

    Usually nachos are delicious, not tonight. Cheese was rubbery and waxy. My husband crab cakes were delicious. I ordered salad. It listed pistachio, and I think there was only one on there. Dressing was delicious. Our server was Sara. She was very good. We will return, I’m hoping it was just because it was Valentine’s Day and crowded.

    The stuffed mushrooms were very good, cooked just right. The dish could have been improved with a drizzled sauce over it. The main courses (beef and tuna) were very good, cooked rare as requested. The chocolate desert was delicious. Only criticism was the graham pie crust was pretty hard.

    I was there with a friend before a show at the Media Theater, and we enjoyed sharing the Valentines special. Our flatbread appetizer, salmon entrees and cheesecake dessert were all very good. Good value at $45 for the two of us. The special runs through the weekend.

    Service is sooo slow. Sat for an hour before getting our entrees. Gave ourselves plenty of time because we had show tickets at Media theater. We would have been late otherwise. Food tasted like it was prepared and sitting too long under the warming lights. Not a good experience.
