Great price for great breakfast!

We ate breakfast here every morning and it was worth it every day. We had a different waitress every time, but it was always delicious, always prompt, and always a great price for a budget vacation.

We stopped by the Iron Skillet this summer and it was excellent as usual. Very affordable, good service and the biscuits and gravy were great. Closed on Sunday however which was a bummer when we tried to go again but we will be back.

We love to eat where the locals eat. There were plenty there for breakfast. The food was good, the waitress was great. Everything you want in a diner.

We had fast service at 1230pm, great selection and first hamburger steak I have had in awhile that was well done, not burned or charred and good sweet tea.

We had breakfast here one morning while in the area. The service was very good, food arrived quickly and was nice and hot, and our coffee cups were filled a few times (always appreciated at breakfast!). The food itself was ok....not great, not bad, very average. I had an omelet, homefries and toast and my husband had pancakes.

The food was ok but the wait was way too long. The staff was friendly and the waitress was quick to wait on us but it was a 45 minute wait for a hotdog plate.

Every time we go to Bryson City we always eat breakfast at the iron skillet. Some of the best breakfast I've ever had. The bacon is so so good. Great Serevive and real nice people. If you take a trip to Bryson City be sure to go eat breakfast at the iron skillet. You will not be dissapointed.
