Good food

The servers are very friendly and helpful. We both had the buffet which consisted of fried catfish, chicken strips, popcorn shrimp, mixed vegetables, corn on the cob, cornbread muffins and hushpuppies. It was all very good and well prepared. They had different choices of cobbler for desert. Good... read more

The decor was beautiful. The wait staff very nice. The squirrels outside playing was a plus. When we asked the wait staff if all the food was fresh and home cooked they all said yes. Unfortunately EVERYTHING was out of a can or bag. You will be very disappointed if you are southern. The Rainbow Room down town was MUCH... More

Every time I stay at the folk center we eat breakfast there and it is always the best place to get a buffet style breakfast I have ever been to. I would recommend it to any one.

My parents and I ate at The Skillet while touring the folk music village. The food was delicious and our server was so very nice and accommodating. We also enjoyed watching the squirrels play on the patio outside the window.

This restaurant is decorated just as you'd expect in the Ozark's. There was a good variety on the menu including dishes unique to the area. Several squirrels provided entertainment for us as they jumped on corn cob feeders. Everything was great!

The Skillet has a good reputation for the buffet. Must have been reviewed by those who have never had a truly great buffet. My wife and I avoided the buffet here as we've made that mistake before. Sorry to say the menu doesn't live up to expectations either. We are 'locals' having lived here in Mountain View for going on... More
