Restaurant Review: Iron Hill a delicious dining destination in Lancaster

One of my favorite restaurants in downtown Lancaster is Iron Hill Brewery. If you have not been here before, I would say hands down it is worthy of a try.

First, if possible, you want to get a table along the windows of Harrisburg Pike. From this vantage point you will have a great view of the beautiful campus of Franklin & Marshall College while you dine.

The wait staff is friendly, helpful, and very knowledgeable.


The menu is filled with food representing several specialties from many countries. With plentiful portions including seafood, meat, salads, pizzas and a variety of appetizers, there is much for every person to enjoy.

Being originally from Maine I love seafood and I always order the seafood chowder. This starter does not disappoint! Clams, shrimp, and scallops were mixed in a creamy broth that was a fantastic start to my meal.

My family also typically shares an order of Rhode Island calamari. With Greek ancestry, this was a lightly fried and tasty treat that my mom says, rivals many from the Greek Islands she has visited.

For my main meal I usually order a delicious, tasty, juicy deluxe cheeseburger on a lightly toasted brioche bun that holds this scrumptious burger together. Additional great menu items I have tried include their Thai lettuce wraps, Korean BBQ pork sliders, salad with grilled salmon, seafood quiche, crab cakes, fish tacos, flank steak and the margherita pizza.



My family loves to conclude our dinner with the Triple Chocolate Hill. This yummy dessert is considered in my eyes, all things delicious! A double fudge brownie topped with vanilla ice cream, caramel sauce, whipped cream, and chocolate sauce is nothing short of amazing! The lemon pie and creme brulee are also some delightful desserts.

Every time my family and I go to Iron Hill, we leave with full stomachs, smiles on our faces, and we always look forward to the next time we return to this gem in the city.
