None of the servers wore face masks. Otherwise the food was decent and commensurate with the price. Service itself was also good.

Only two employees seen, both very slow. Waited behind one couple before entering. Went in after they were seated. Was totally ignored until a group came in behind us. Waitress came over and told us they could not have that many people inside and that...we had to go outside. We went across street and found good service and food at Everett St Diner.More

Very accommodating for my allergies. Made poached eggs on requested as I am allergic to soy and gluten. Staff was very sweet and attentive. The food was tasty as well!

This was one of the worst places we’ve been in a couple of years. We tried to get into the deli next door but it was packed. This place was next door...we were starving. At first I didn’t see much on the menu that hit...me. I needed to use the restroom so I told my husband to hold off ordering thinking maybe we should leave. However, the restroom was pretty clean & left me with a better impression than when I walked in. First I ordered a ribeye sandwich but was told they were out of 6 oz ribeyes so they’d use a 10 Oz for more $$. Instead, I ordered a burger plate (per menu “plate” came with fries and coleslaw). Spouse ordered Philly cheesesteak plate. Sweet potato fries up-charge—no problem. Spouses sandwich was ok (not brimming with much meat) but we realized we had not gotten coleslaw. Called server over & she said they no longer served coleslaw. Wait! What?! Your menu states it comes with “plate”. Nope...and NO price adjustment. Alrighty then. My burger was hand pattied but so dry I could barely chew it. Bun dry as well. The sweet potato fries appeared to have been re-fried and they were brown beyond recognition. The server agreed to remove them from the check. Interestingly the condiments were Great Value brand from Walmart —even observed a 5# bag of Walmart sugar being used in the sweet tea canister. So on to the check. It said $9.95 for Philly “plate” even though no slaw, $6.95 for burger and $2.50x 2 drinks. OK, we checked the menu (my mind is pretty sharp when it comes to prices). Burger was supposed to be $5.95 and senior drinks $2 (we are clearly seniors!). We had to get the check adjusted. Obviously this place has problems. Do yourself a favor—there are plenty of other places in town to eat. I think even McDonald’s would surpass this!More

OK.... This started out very frustrating, but ended good. To begin with, I have never been to a restaurant where I had to sign in my name and the number of people I had in party. No one greeted us as we came in to...tell us this process; we kind of figured it out after about ten minutes of waiting. Once we signed in, a server came up every few minutes or so to check the sheet. We waited forty five minutes and this girl was NOT happy. A manager (I guess, because he just stood around) said nothing and did nothing as the wait line got longer. The saving grace was our server who went above and beyond once we got seated. She was the epitome of customer service. Maybe the manager could learn from her. The food is good, but the process to the table is not one I would do again.More

This is another place that we always eat at on our visits to Bryson City. You will not get a better breakfast anywhere in Town. Great food, friendly people and we can't wait to eat there again on our next visit!!!!

This place is really nothing to write home about. We ate breakfast here. It was OK, but a little pricey for what you get. Came out really quick, which signaled that most of the food is precooked. The lack of warmth on the breakfast meats...confirmed that. Server wasn't very friendly, which was disappointing. Won't be going back there when in the area again.More

Really nothing to write home about...the breakfast was fine but a little pricey. The furniture is old school.

We were early for the train and asked for a good spot to get a quick breakfast. The gentleman parking cars recommended a diner and The Iron Skillet. We got to the Iron Skillet first and went in. Laid back atmosphere, good service and the...best doggone breakfast I have had in a while! Golly, that bacon was fantastic. It closed at 2; otherwise we would have been back for dinner and chicken and dumplings!! Great hometown spot we are happy we did not miss!More

I don't believe so. We went for breakfast, and passed by during lunch on another day and they were open.
