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. It was delicious. I'm glad I didn't order fries. They close for lunch at 2 and we some of the last customers... More

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.

We needed a quick breakfast prior to a family wedding. The wait staff had us in and out pretty quickly. The food was decent. We appreciated the kind service.

Ate breakfast here two days in a row and not because they had the only eggs in town. They had really nice people and delicious and large breakfasts. Our plans for both days involved physical activities that required a healthy breakfast to fuel hiking and rafting. On both days, the pleasant wait staff greeted us as we entered the door,... More
