While many other businesses let it slide in the slow season, the Iron Skillet comes through with both quality of food and great service. Reasonably priced, this is one place one must visit for breakfast or lunch. For great home cooking, Iron Skillet is the place.

We ate here our first day in town. We had some great food. I ordered 6 wings and they were smoking hot (temperature) right to the last one and good. They prepared everything fresh. The burger with the fried egg was delicious. Our server Shelby was awesome. A true Southern Belle. She put me in the mind of "Steel Magnolia".... More

My boyfriend and I were visiting Bryson City for the first time and we were looking for somewhere good to eat breakfast. The Iron Skillet was it! Good hometown cooking. Lots of choices on the menu and good prices. You gotta try their bacon. It was the best bacon I have ever eaten. Thick and crispy, very flavorful! If we... More

My husband and I enjoyed breakfast here. We were greated by a friendly waitress. My husband had Eggs, Bacon, Biscuits and Gravy and they put tomatoes on top at his request. I had to eat gluten free. This was not a problem. The menu did not state gluten free but I explained what I needed to avoid and ordered a... More

My boyfriend and I ate breakfast at the Iron Skillet while we were in Bryson City for a few days and it was pretty good. They had traditional diner breakfast options, and some other novelty items as well. We both got the "working man special" which was eggs, bacon, biscuit, homefries and a pancake, and it was delicious. The biscuit... More

We will not be returning there. We did not have out food within 45 minutes. We ended up getting out order to and eat at the meeting. When I... More

Me and my friend went here on a late morning during a week day and it was filled with customers. The food was delicious and at a very reasonable price! The staff was really friendly and willing to help. Since we were there in the later hours of the morning they weren't making pancakes anymore but our server offered to... More
