I ordered pasta primavera off the specials. It was not even edible. Sent it back and just ate off the soup and salad bar. Just fair. Waitress was the only good thing about the meal.Cashier had better things to do than her job. Seems since TA truckstops bought all the Petro's they all went down hill.

We asked the hotel staff where we should eat and they directed us to the Iron Skillet. At first glance you're a little skeptical, but the food was really good. The buffet looked plentiful and my husband enjoyed the variety. I ordered off the menu and it was excellent. No complaints. The staff was friendly and kept the iced tea... More

We stopped in coming home from the beach. We were hungry, needed to get a fill up on gasoline and get some extra cash as well as a bathroom stop... Surprise to me... We got it all at one stop. The Iron Skillet Truck Stop. They had a great gift shop, very clean restrooms, ATM, and the food was awesome.... More

They have an all you can eat buffet. We ordered off the menu because I wanted breakfast at dinner. Penny was our server and she had a great personality, she felt like a friend I had known all my life.

The place is grungy and has an unappetizing salad bar. I asked the waitress for very crisp hashbrowns. They were not! I looked at the order she placed in the kitchen. No mention at all about crisp. The elderly clerk at the check out was about as friendly as a doormat. I'd drive a while to avoid this one.

We had the buffet. Enjoyed the veggie soup. It was loaded. The salad bar is small but quite good. The fried chicken was good but the potatoes were cold and slightly undercooked. To make up for this the beans were too well done!

Although just average, this was the best restaurant at this exit of I-81. Other options were Wendy's & Burger King. Buffet had a good selection and food was good.
