Good eats to start the day

Grabbed breakfast before whitewater rafting, food was good and cheap. Waitress very friendly and answered many questions we had about area, even sharing pictures of why she loves the area! Easy parking and good location to Main Street.

We ate breakfast at the Iron Skillet both mornings. Great food. Even though only one waitress was working at the time we had very good service. The prices are great.

We had a good dinner here after a waterfall hike in the Deep Creek area of the Smokies. It seems like a local place with community notices on the board and so on. Linoleum ambiance, but clean. I had the meatloaf special with mashed potatoes and gravy, fried okra, turnip greens, and corn bread. My date had a pulled pork... More

The selections are varied and the special of the day is always fresh and good. The salad bar is a bit small but always fresh

The food was good. It's mostly American diner type food. Waitress was friendly and prompt. However, no pancakes or waffles after 11 and that's what we were all looking for. Also the booths and tables are a bit on the small side. Overall it was clean and a good meal.

It is on a off street, but the food and service were good. It was very clean and the prices were very reasonable. I would say I will try again when we go back to the area.

I had two eggs over medium, rye toast and grits with cheese. Everything was adequate. The rye ended up being a marble rye....a true rye would have been preferable. Fast and courteous service. I would go back.

We had a great lunch at The Iron Skillet this afternoon. The staff was very nice and helpful and the food was great! I had the pulled pork sandwich, so delicious! If you're looking for something quick and simple with great tasting food then this is the place!
