“Good "down home" trucker food”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.

“A Pleasant Surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

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.
