Worse food I have ever put in my mouth.

I do not post reviews often but people need to be warned. I asked twice about the mashed potatoes. ...as to their origin. ... I DARE you to try them.

There were only 2 servers and they were extremely busy with busing tables, ringing people up, serving food and drinks and bringing out the food. The food is great!

We unknowingly walked in 10 minutes before closing on Sunday but were pleasantly greeted, seated and served. The service was good, the burgers were fantastic and it was very affordable. Definitely recommend the Iron Kettle. Great small town diner.

If you like country, then you'll like the Iron Kettle. We had breakfast there twice. Each time the coffee was hot, good service and great food. The prices are right and easy to get in and out.

We were sat quickly and were served our drinks promptly. We waited 25-30 minutes for someone to take our order. Food arrived almost an hour after being seated. And it was cold! My grilled chicken breast was inedible (I overheard the table behind us returning hers for the same reason). Needless to say we won't be returning to this restaurant.

Nothing special. Which was disappointing for a small town eatery. Wouldn't eat there again. Although the service was good.

Stopped at the Iron Kettle after taking a tour of the Jack Daniels Distillery. The waitress was very friendly. The Slaw burgers were great. Grilled bun, nice juicy burger and some of the Best Slaw I've ever eaten. If we would have had someway to carry extra we would gotten some to take home. Loved the fried pickles also.

I have eaten here for several years but only in the past few months have tried their homemade biscuits (with Milk Gravy). It is something I look forward to every trip to the Square.

Loved seeing and hearing the locals visiting one another and talking. Very comfortable place, friendly staff, good food and great prices. Just the basics.
