Had lunch with family recently and since I must eat gluten free, decided to try Iron Hill Brewery. They do have a fairly nice gluten free menu with multiple choices. I had the Brewski burger on a gluten free bun with a side of garlic mashed potatoes. The burger was decent, but not exceptional. My daughter and her husband had... More

If you like beers then you may be drawn to a brewery but I actually don't drink beer and we still love this restaurant. We had our first date here and go back to celebrate our anniversary each year. The French onion soup is the best around!!

We went to the UD Creamery in the evening with family for some ice cream and then a walk through the gardens. Nice evening and good ice cream.

Four patrons for a late luck on a Saturday. Two meals were done very well. A third was uneatable, they did replace it at no charge, but it was not that busy it should not have happened. My dinner had to go back three times to be correct. When correct it was good and again no charge. Atomosphere was good... More

Food was a bit heavy and on the greasy side. Waitstaff was ok but nothing special. Would not recommend this restaurant.

We had dinner out with another couple. Place was packed but service was great. Fish and chips was excellent. Others had burgers which were fantastic. Definitely go back again.

We have eaten at Iron Hill Brewery several times and have never been disappointed. They have a wide variety of interesting dishes from which to choose. Their service is very good as well.

Iron Hill Breweries (IHB) are a mainstay in the Delaware, Pennsylvania and New Jersey region. Known for their Brew master creations, they also make the mark with their dining offerings. IHB in Newark, DE is no exception. Located on Main Street amidst the University of Delaware, it is not unusual to find a packed house any day of the week.... More

I travel to Bear, DE often for business and I will usually stop at Iron Hill at least once for dinner. They brew some really good beer and their food is some of the best that I have had in that area. The atmosphere is comfy and the staff is always friendly and attentive. Highly recommend if you are in... More
