Very nice place to take a break and catch a good meal. Plenty of room to park whether you are in a Semi or an RV.

We are traveling and stayed at a local hotel in Corning. The Iron Skillet is down the road from he hotel. The restaurant is clean and the food is pretty much 'mom's comfort food' and was well prepared. Our waitress Erin was great! She kept up a running conversation with some of her regular customers, yet made us feel welcome... More

After traveling from Central California in our RV ( with a daughter in law and a 6 month old grandson) to see "The Outlaws" in Seattle, needed a place to stop and relax for luncheon. After seeing the "jacked up " prices at the sandwich shop ( "S", ) we decided on the buffet. Wonderful server for drinks, smiles at... More

My husband and I eat here several times a month, typically breakfast or dinner. They have a good selection and the food is always good.

After eating out for a week and a half in the Corning area, a friend and I were looking for a "new place" to try. We were surprised in good. The buffet is extensive and the food is good. The service was friendly and attentive (especially for a buffet). Had we staid longer in the area, we would have cycled... More

When I stop somewhere for something to eat, I expect the place to be neat, tidy and relatively quiet. I want to eat in peace and I want to be relatively sure that even if it's not 5 star quality what I eat won't make me ill. Places that encourage vagrants don't go very far toward meeting these wants. This... More

I love going to the Iron Skillet! I love their Buffet and the fact that, when I'm tired or in pain, I can sit down to a wonderful menu and be served. They are friendly, courteous and best of all I can afford to eat there. It is a wonderful place to go no matter what the occasion. And it... More

Called in an order for my family: French toast, eggs over easy, bacon, ham, hash browns. It was ready in under 10 min! All tasted great without skimping on serving size.

Not all that great. Grits was like water, food tasted not all that great. Service was ok, but wanted us to sit where they wanted us to. Didn't even have plain pancakes. Won't go back.

I read some of the mixed reviews but we were ready for a stop so we gave it a try. There was not a big selection of hot dishes but there was a sort of pulled pork dish with green sauce that was very good. The salad bar was better than I expected. All of the veggies were fresh and... More
