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...

One of the best dining experiences in Indianapolis! Expect to be treated to a semi-formal dining experience, combined with the best in local comfort food served family style! I've been visiting the Iron Skillet for decades, and have NEVER been disappointed with the quality of service or food, and all of a very reasonable price. The setting is an old... More

We were able to get a reservation at the last minute for our large party of 22. We did have to wait about 45 minutes for our table but this was expected because they just were finishing up an extremely large party. Once we were seated, our party was split into two different rooms. The service was quite rushed, like... More

I was at Iron Skillet for someone's 95th birthday party. They were very accommodating for such a large group. The food was excellent. Fried chicken is always an A+. However, I had the fried fish (it was a white fish) and it was a very large portion, so crispy and hot, seasoned just right. Plenty of tartar sauce served with... More
