Restaurant details
Reviewed September 15, 2013

The person at the hotel front desk recommended The Iron Skillet and said that it was very clean and the food was good. There is a full menu as well as a buffet. Now, I don't usually eat at buffets, but most people were, and the waitress said it was good, so we decided to give it a try. For buffet food, it was very good. Staff was continuously restocking food and keeping everything clean. If your will-power is better than mine you could have salad and veggies and baked chicken -- or you could go for the fried chicken or steak which you could top with country gravy, huge smoked pork chops, shrimp and grits; not to mention the mashed potatoes, butter beans, etc., and finished by pound cake, bread pudding and such.

At lunch my culinary companion had Grilled Chicken Salad with a Blue Cheese dressing that was in and of itself fantastic. The chicken was fine, and everything else in the salad was very fresh, using field greens. I had the Chili Burger, and the chili was fantastic, worth it's own visit, while the burger tasted of filler and looked to have been assembled from a serious blender setting. I kept soaking out that thing in chili juice and ketchup from the nice fries, and made my own happy meal.
Service was attentive and of good cheer.
