GF Restaurant Review: Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant
Posted Jan 11 2009 5:44pm
I've been to Iron Hill many times before. Although, each time is a bit of torture due to the towering copper vats of glutenous beer that are displayed near the bar. Mindy and I were visiting our good friends John and Chris, and decided to have lunch at the West Chester Iron Hill location. As usual, the waitstaff were very friendly and accommodating. They new exactly what I was talking about when I told them I could not eat gluten, and quickly retrieved their gluten free menu. I ordered the Southwestern Turkey Burger, which comes with guacamole, bacon, tomato, pepper-jack cheese and ancho-honey mayonnaise. The French dressing and ancho-honey mayonnaise were really good. Although I couldn't order any fries, due to the high risk of cross-contamination, this was a great lunch. I haven't had a bad experience or a bad meal yet at Iron Hill. I'd give them an "A".
I was told by our waiter that Iron Hill's gluten free list will soon be posted on their website. But until then, here is what they offer:
All our salads are fine. You would need to specify that you do not want a bread stick, or croutons on the caesar, and pita on the greek salad, and make certain that you clarify that you have a gluten allergy. All dressings are safe.
Caribbean Garlic Shrimp Skewers (ask for no yucca sticks, since they're fried with breaded products)
English Cheese Plate (ask for no multi grain bread)
Hummus (ask for no pita bread)
Hawaiian Spiced Tuna (gluten free if wasabi vinaigrette is omitted)
Cajun Fried Catfish (need to eliminate the coating mix and bake the fish)
Pan Seared Sea Scallops and Shrimp
North Atlantic Salmon (changes daily, but can always be made GF)
New York Strip Steak (ask to omit the sauce)
Pan Roasted Chicken Breasts (GF without the onion rings)
Jamaican Jerk Pork Loin Chop (GF without the sweet potato fries)
