We went to dinner here upon arriving in Bryson City for our week away. It was exactly what we expected--a small town, home-y feel. The server was friendly, efficient and on point. The hostess (?) made small talk with us and offered us places to go and even recommended a Christmas show for our preschooler to see. The food was... More

We stopped here for dinner while waiting for our train ride.. It was delicious!! I had the prime rib sandwich, which was cooked just right, and my husband had the Philly cheese steak sandwich basket.

We pile into the car about twice a year to drive 250 miles from SC to Bryson City, NC to go to the Iron Skillet to have their prime rib sandwich. It's a fun drive, and every time the sandwich is a Home Run!!!!! Just made the trip today. Love this place.

The breakfast was hearty and good. I had the pancakes, my mom and sister had the bacon and egg plate. It was a great place to see locals.

Went here for breakfast because the other place we tried (Everett St Diner) had a line. Had to wait here about 10 minutes. The place was obviously understaffed; the hostess was stressed.

Stopped by for lunch because I saw the sign. Had a cheese steak with fries. The sandwich was smaller than a 6 inch sub from the nations largest sub chain. For over $12 with an iced tea, I left hungry. Servers were all very friendly.

We chose a very busy weekend to visit, food is always good (our 5 time here) but this time the staff was a little overwhelmed by the number of people in town.
