we are regular repeat customers, and enjoy everything on the menu. The food is all fresh cooked, original and tasty.

“Homemade Sauces!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

Great restaurant. All homemade sauces; you can definitely taste the difference between the local franchises (Boston Pizza, Kelsey's etc.) and The Iron Skillet. The Alfredo sauce and Caesar dressing are amazing! If you're visiting Collingwood this is the place to dine.

“Absolutely Awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

We have been to The Iron Skillet MANY times for both lunch and supper. Hands down, the best home cooked meals in town. We found the portions generous and the food spectacular. My particular favourites? Cabbage Rolls (OMG!), Brisket (melts), Enchilada's, Chicken Broccoli Bake, Chicken Fettucini. My Mom still raves about the Thai Bowl she had one day! If the food wasn't spectacular, then it must've been Tony's day off, because nothing less than amazing passes by him. My son, who is 6, will order the Cesar salad EVERY time... he loves "the best salad ever"!

Some service issues in the beginning which, In my opinion were only training a whole brand new staff and opening growing pains... We have Never had a problem, or even a wait! The prices are excellent and better than even the big Chain restaurants which charge more for less and worse food.

“EXCELLENT Local Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

On our first visit to this restaurant, there were 8 in our group. It was a Monday night which is "Mexican" night. Every one of us had an excellent meal. No complaints. Food was delicious. Owner/chef, Tony, makes his own hot sauces which are sold on site and sit on each of the tables. One of our group members did not head the advise on the label of hot sauce. It was hot. The ambiance may not be that of fine dining but food is great, portions large and a large selection of daily specials. We did return on another occasion and had the same result. Our local favourite!!! You have to try The Iron Skillet.
