Saw the other reviews and decided to give this place a try. Husband ordered fried flounder with onion rings and fried ocra and I ordered chicken Philly. All of our food was delicious and a great way to begin our vacation!

Our time spent at this restaurant was an hour and 45 minutes for breakfast. From the time we sat down and got our food it was an hour and a half. It took at least ten minutes for anyone to even come to the table. Once we did get our food it was not great. Then when we went to... More

We ate here just as we arrived in town. I ordered their special burger (I can't remember the name of it) . They brought out this huge burger. I was starving but I could not eat it all.

This one place you want to go for either breakfast - lunch or dinner. We ate there a couple of times during our visit and the food was so good.

The Iron Skillet was a great value. We had breakfast before boarding the Great Smokey Mountain Railroad.The food plentiful and hot and well worth the value. The service was great and our glasses were never empty.

The staff was attentive and friendly. The pricing was reasonable. The problem was the food. We had breakfast and the potatoes were cardboard and the biscuit and gravy tasteless. Luckily, the kitchen didn't ruin the eggs or the pancakes. They are closed Sunday,which we considered a blessing.

I had one of the best bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwiches. I was disappointed when I went there for dinner Wednesday night as for some reason they were closed for dinner that night. It would also be nice if they stayed open past 7 PM.

If you have nothing else to do with your day than to wait on your breakfast, then eat here. After waiting 10 min for someone to take our drink order, we waited 45 minutes for waffles. The food was just ok.

We have been to The Iron Skillet a couple of times now. I have to say the prices are very reasonable, good selection and they have great food and sweet tea. I had biscuits and gravy and it was very good and well portioned, my husband also enjoyed his breakfast. The waitress was friendly and attentive. We will return.
