Got glutened from the turkey burger. The manager had nothing to say other than “we’re gluten friendly not gluten free.”

Had the Zeus burger. Quite tasty but the GF bun was slightly cold in a few spots.

GF menu and even a GF kids menu--jackpot! My wife and 2 yr old son both have Celiac. It's hard enough finding places that are either kid friendly or Celiac friendly, let alone both, but Iron Hill delivers. They plainly state that their kitchen is shared and cross-contamination IS a risk, but we have been fine so far. The GF menu isn't huge but it offers about 5 options each for appetizers, entrees, burgers, and salads. Desserts are limited to ice cream and creme brulee. The kids GF menu has burgers, shrimp, fish, chicken, (the sandwiches come on GF buns) and a good selection of sides. No GF mac n cheese or nuggets for the picky fast food eaters, but not a bad selection at all.

They have a good wine list, two GF beers if you just have to have a beer (although one is Omission which gives some people reactions, so beware) and a full service bar. I found the cocktails to be a bit overpriced/watered down but at least they are inventive and tasty. And their regular non-GF menu and beer selection is quite good, so everyone leaves happy!

The ambience is a bit upscale but busy/noisy enough to feel kid friendly. If a kid is whining or fidgeting, the other guests aren't likely to notice or care.

Ask about GF menus before being seated, and remind your server about GF needs when ordering so there are no mix ups. We did hit one snag with our server (who was brand new to the job) who didn't notice the cookie on our son's ice cream until she was about to serve it. But she fixed it quickly with the kitchen and eveything else about our experience was awesome. We will return again and again as it's one of the few upscale family-friendly options we have where trying to order GF isn't diffcult or downright harrowing.

Went here this week. Avoid it. It was super disappointing. I used to seek out iron hill because they were one of the few places in early 2010s that offered a gf menu. Well now they don't have a gf menu and staff wasn't clear on what I could have. Originally they said two menu items were gluten free plus the sweet potato fries. So I ordered the fries only for them to later come tell me it's a shared fryer. I appreciate them checking with me. Staff was nice. It's just a shame the restaurant has taken several steps backward as far as special diet accommodations.

Had the pan seared scallops with basmati rice. Delicious. No GF menu but wait staff knowledgeable and asked chef about dishes. They offer gf buns for burgers and cauliflower crusts for pizza.

Not many options, but I got the chicken Caesar salad and it was great. My son got a cauliflower pizza and said it was good.

I stopped due to the high reviews, but they did not offer a GF menus like some stated. The waitress was happy to walk me over options and told me to stick to protein or veggies to avoid cross contamination, as it is a brewery. I was able to get flank steak and asparagus! I did not end up sick and I am a sensitive Celiac so that's a win for me!
