Good food and service.

We've been here twice. Good food, reasonable prices, and great service. Right in the middle of downtown.

Great place, looks a bit like a cafe from the outside, but the staff and food was great, didn't have enough room for desert

We had breakfast there 2 days and both were good with great service. The pancakes were huge and the bacon was some of the best.

I come here quite often. The food is always fresh and tasty. The wait staff is always very friendly and efficient. It's a good little hometown restaurant.

I stopped by for dinner. Service was fast and with a smile. Good food and comfortable seating. Prices were fair for the size portions that are served.

We have eaten here in past years so during our recent visit to Bryson City NC it was a no-brainer to head to The Iron Skillet for breakfast.

We visited the Iron Skillet every morning we were in town. They have terrific home made food. Just enough in every platter to really fill you up! I highly recommend the Iron Skillet!

The weren't very busy for breakfast around 8:15 am.seemed we interrupted the waitress once we sat and were Looking g for a menu. Ordered coffee. Tasted horrid. Instead of making a fresh pot, the waitress just mixed a few together and served it. The waffles with strawberrys, strawberries not fresh, just mashed together, looked old. I will not go back.

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.
