“Downhome Charm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

We were recommended to try The Iron Skillet while on a recent vacation to Collingwood, ON. We found it to be very comfortable and homey......friendly servers and a good menu. There was nothing fancy about this place, but the food was great. It is quaint inside and the menu is on a board that is brought to your table. We had the steak and it was cooked perfectly. There was homemade pies for dessert and we shared the pumpkin pie. It was delicious. We understand this is also a great lunch spot. We will return here. It is a kind of "meat and potato" kind of spot that we look for sometimes. Thanks for having us!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

Food was excellent! Atmosphere and staff were very friendly! We are from Michigan and while visiting the area we chose The Iron Skillet as one of our restaurants to stop at. We were quite pleased with the meals we received and the quality of the food. A+++ all the way around!
