Great place, great food. Superb sweet potato nachos for me, and the best philly steak sandwich my husband had ever had. We'll definitely come back here next time we're in the area. The waitress was extremely helpful and Tony, the owner and chef, came out to chat and check we were happy with the food. Couldn't fault it - we... More

I found "The Iron Skillet" through TripAdvisor. I hate arriving in a town and no one in the group knows where there is a good place to eat. The server was excellent. My senior mother wasn't sure about the soup so our server, upon request, provided her with a small taste. My mom deemed it excellent. So. My mom had... More

After reading many positive reviews we decided to try the Iron Skillet. I will start with the positives, the portions were generous and the wait staff was very friendly. The negatives unfortunately spoiled our visit. The restaurant was not busy and our order of 2 sandwiches and fries took 40 minutes to arrive. My husband's food was only lukewarm. The... More

Stopped by for lunch and had the special, Cannelloni and Enchilada. Both the best and served with a huge Caesar salad. Service was great as usual and Tony, the wonderful chef dropped by to suggest the dishes to order.

I had the rib eye steak. It was cooked to perfection. I ordered the hunter sauce with the steak. It was fantastic. Lisa was our server, she was so helpful describing the different dishes. We took her advise and weren't disappointed at all. My friend had the cordon bleu wiener shnitzel. The portions are quite substantial. The food is delicious.... More

Our server was pleasant. Food was ok. My salad was very nice however the chicken was way overdone and tough. One in our party ordered no fries & her plate arrived loaded with fries. Two others ordered the fish & chips. They said the fish was good however was so overly battered one had to remove the batter to get... More

Had a big plate that our schnitzel covered. It was delicious. I only wish I would have had room left for dessert because they had amazing choices, to include funnel fry poutine. That is funnel cake shaped like french fries with grated cheesecake, caramel and berries on top. The chef/owner came by and visited with us a long time.
