We arrived around 8:30 pm, they were short staffed and getting busier than they expected. Food was awesome, buffet was just being replenished with fresh meat and salads. Servers were extremely pleasant and apologized for any waits that may have occurred due to being short staffed.

Very nice place to take a break and catch a good meal. Plenty of room to park whether you are in a Semi or an RV.

We are traveling and stayed at a local hotel in Corning. The Iron Skillet is down the road from he hotel. The restaurant is clean and the food is pretty much 'mom's comfort food' and was well prepared. Our waitress Erin was great! She kept up a running conversation with some of her regular customers, yet made us feel welcome... More

After seeing the "jacked up " prices at the sandwich shop ( "S", ) we decided on the buffet. Wonderful server for drinks, smiles at... More

When I stop somewhere for something to eat, I expect the place to be neat, tidy and relatively quiet. I want to eat in peace and I want to be relatively sure that even if it's not 5 star quality what I eat won't make me ill. Places that encourage vagrants don't go very far toward meeting these wants.
