Stopped here for both breakfast and dinner while staying in the area. Wide variety of menu options that are reasonably priced. Hard to walk away from here not being filled up or taking a doggy bag! Also has a nice salad bar for dinner and outdoor screened in seating.

This is my favorite place to get a fish fry in the area. If you're looking for a non-traditional fish fry, they also do a Germany fish fry with potato pancakes, red cabbage, and German potato salad as your dies. The regular fish fry is excellent. The price is very reasonable, considering the large portions that you get. Service is... More

5 of us and 3 meals all mixed up, the kitchen must not read the orders. Lots of specials, with pricing. Salad bar ok, bread never replenished. They survive on the locals .

Enjoyed a girlfriends' lunch today at the Iron Kettle Restaurant. It was easy to find, on a main road. The atmosphere inside was very warm and welcoming, as were the servers. My tuna wrap was the best I ever had and the soup and salad bar were included in the cost...can't beat that value. All of the items on the... More

We looked at the specials board and didn't know what to order. Everyone made great choices and were very satisfied and... More

This is a pretty provincial country place but so VERY much better than the typical chain restaurant. A lot of older folks come for the good food and dialogue. The pork chop special was delightful and it's not often one gets a full meal, salad and soup bar for $10. Plain, nice, good and reminiscent of Aunt Betty's kitchen. Try... More
