“On route to number 1”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2014 via mobile

Just finished a delicious meal with my wife. She had the crawfish and I has the panko coconut chicken. Who are we kidding. We shared and the flavours were amazing. Tony came out to greet the guests - and you are treated liked guests in his house. Staff took care of us and every table around with enthusiasm. Spoke to other guest and they too were savouring their meals. The waiter bought the desert board off the wall for us to read and two other tables journeyed over to declare their indulgence. One table hadn't even ordered their meal. Great food, great time, great company. Better hurry in if you have never been here. I am told the restaurant will soon be featured on TV and there will surely be a line up when that happens. Thanks again Tony and Family

“One of the best Collingwood!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014

This restaurant has a really nice relaxed, laid back atmosphere but don't let that fool you. They are SERIOUS when it comes to food. This was the best meal I have had in Collingwood! I had the Mexican chicken and my husband had the Carribean Jerk chicken. The food was unbelievable. If you are in Collingwood you cannot pass up a chance to eat here. The food is absolutely amazing! The staff is well trained and extremely friendly. Service was fast. The food was nice and hot. Most of all, the chef/owner came and greeted every guest to make sure we enjoyed our meal. The fact there were a lot of us during the dinner hour didn't stop him from making his rounds. Try it, you won't be disappointed!

“Crazy if you miss this one”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014

This restaurant came with such glowing reviews we were skeptical it could be that good - wrong once more - it really is excellent. The Food Channel show "You Gotta Eat Here" was here recently. The food is fresh, varied and delicious. They did not have a fish sandwich on the menu but that did not stop them from creating one just for me, and it was great. I agree with other reviewers who said to order the specials for a real treat. I did that the second time we came back within our one week vacation. That kinda says something.

“Great variety in specials”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2014

Very warm and friendly atmosphere Popular with the local families. They often have very European specials that are not commonly found on other menus.
Have been in business for many years in Collingwood.

“Dependable, well priced and fun spot.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2014

The Iron Skillet has high standards in food quality, a wide ranging menu and efficient friendly service. Have had Schnitzel, Cajun Jambalaya, and a variety of items off their menu and have found everything to be very good to excellent. The portions are huge. We frequent "The Skillet" regularly. Never disappointed.
