You MUST stop at the Skillet which is fabulous

Eight of us ate chicken dinner there on Feb. 15 and it was one of the best meals we have ever had. The owners are excellent and friendly and the service is perfect. Their chicken is the best we ever had, similar to Zenders or Bavarian Inn in Frankenmuth, MI. Only difference is they don't have... read more

This restaurant is fantastic. It has been around since the 1950's and still has that feel complete with table covers and cloth place mats. Each person orders their meat selection but then the rest of the meal is served family style and there is a LOT of it. There is enough food served at each meal that you will have... More

We have been dinning at the Iron Skillet for over 40 years. We hosted our wedding rehearsal dinner at the IS in 1974 with the previous owners. Yes, there are many memories at this establishment of family members who are no longer with us. However, I differ with some reviewers on the food aspect, we know good food. In my... More

This place was probably the best southern restaurant that wasn't southern. Very friendly great atmosphere. Me and my weren't sure if we were allowed in, but everyone was friendly. The portions were crazy...One meal could feed you for the next two days. I was not expecting four courses with the meal let alone a mini ice cream bar at your... More

We had a welcome home party for a family member and she chose the Iron Skillet. The restaurant is set in a charming 19th century period home overlooking a wonderful golf course. Upon entering we were ushered to a perfectly set table for 11. Some preliminary food was already waiting like their fabulously simple lettuce salad, cottage cheese, and Harvard... More

The Iron Skillet is a regular stop for our group. Pan Fried chicken is excellent. Mashed potatoes and corn served home style. Owner is always present and the wait staff very friendly. We will return.

We had a great dinner here to celebrate Mother's Day. What I love about the restaurant is that they accept reservations. We had the wonderful fried chicken, served family style. Yummy!!!

The Iron Skillet has always been our 'go to place' when celebrating special family dinners over the years. We treat out of town guests to their delicious chicken dinners, served family style with assorted sides, which are graciously refilled until you cannot eat another bite! 20 years ago we held my parents' 50th Anniversary party here and it was a...
