The Iron Skillet is a regular stop for our group. Pan Fried chicken is excellent. Mashed potatoes and corn served home style. Owner is always present and the wait staff very friendly. We will return.

We had a great dinner here to celebrate Mother's Day. What I love about the restaurant is that they accept reservations. We had the wonderful fried chicken, served family style. Yummy!!!

The Iron Skillet has always been our 'go to place' when celebrating special family dinners over the years. We treat out of town guests to their delicious chicken dinners, served family style with assorted sides, which are graciously refilled until you cannot eat another bite! 20 years ago we held my parents' 50th Anniversary party here and it was a great success! Today, for under $20 you can enjoy iced tea or coffee, lettuce wedge with cottage cheese and beets, delicious french onion soup, fried chicken, mashed pot. and gravy, green beans and corn, rolls with apple butter,and ice cream with assorted syrups! They also offer steak, shrimp,and other entree's besides chicken at slightly higher prices. The staff is friendly and attentive, the decor is welcoming, the parking is free and the food is great! What more could you want?
FYI: They recommend making reservations and giving your chicken dinner orders over the phone,so you will not have a long wait for your fried chicken. They make it fresh and hot for each table!

One of the best dining experiences in Indianapolis! Expect to be treated to a semi-formal dining experience, combined with the best in local comfort food served family style! I've been visiting the Iron Skillet for decades, and have NEVER been disappointed with the quality of service or food, and all of a very reasonable price. The setting is an old 1800's mansion that has a history. (ask your server for details).
Ordering is so simple....you choose your entrée, and everything else is just included; mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, green beans, rolls, apple butter, salad or soup and dessert. If you're not from this area, it's a terrific place to experience home-cooking...Indiana-style. My favorite is their fried chicken! Still cooked in the traditional manner in real cast-iron skillets! If it's not terribly busy, ask to meet Ron...the owner and operator of this fine Indianapolis institution.
At the time of this review, a full chicken dinner with all the trimmings was $17 or 18....very reasonable for what you get! I'll be back, again and again and again.
