It has been quite a while since. Have stopped at an Iron Skillet and I am glad I did.they had an all you can eat buffet for $10.59 and I must admit it was very good. There was quite an eclectic selection.

Lack of interest from the waitress around late lunch. Followed by very little cheese on an omelet after 2x same result. Even joked with table next to use because neither of our tables were checked on and we were given the bills without asking if we wanted dessert. If the waitress would appear to want to be there and not... More

This Was my first Iron Skillet experience and probably the last. You can get soup and salad, here, but you don’t see that until you’ve already been through the buffet line. At 12:30, most meal selections were lukewarm, with only one or two servings remaining. Our vegetable choices amounted to some overcooked green beans. The salad bar, which is what... More

This is a restaurant in a truck stop so we weren’t sure of the quality of the food. They had a buffet option and I am glad we tried it, everything from the salad bar to the fired chicken was fresh and flavorful. This was not what we were expecting from a truck stop place but we would not hesitate... More

Real good steaks, they are tender, good service, a bit high in prices, but it is worth it. Salad bar is good and tasty. A lot of old Corning Ca history pics. With old time music. I don't like the lighting, it is very bright and annoying and cannot be shut off or unscrewed. So pick a seat without one.

omg. we had never eaten at an iron skillet before. unfortunately, there are only 4 in california and none of them close to home or our regular travel routes. hubby had a denver omelette - loaded with fresh baked ham chunks. he asked for one slice of toast and guess what, megan listened and gave him one slice of toast....

It was late when we got there and the buffet looked pretty good as I walked past it on the way to your table. So I thought, why not? When I got a closer look, the salad bar was missing dark greens; the fried chicken looked dry and there was some dish there without a label that I was afraid... More

What a friendly place to go for a meal! This is a truck stop and management offers truckers a special area to eat but we all can enjoy the buffet or menu items cooked fresh and quite yummy!! Go there often and you and the servers get to know each other - like a small town hang-out!!

I live in Medford Ore. I eat at the iron skillet there all the time. I've been going to Corning the last couple years. So I also have dinner there. All of their steaks great. I like the chicken fried one the best next the rib eye. They have a great salad bar. staffs checks up every few rounds.

We always stop at the Iron Skillet for lunch or dinner on our trips to Reno. They have the best chicken fried steak. They split it at no charge and the wait staff is always friendly. I am so glad we tried them about 4 years ago while staying next door, it's a great place to eat
