Good Eats Plus Entertainment

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!

We ate at the windows and observed squirrels and chipmunk as we ate our lunch. The lunch was delicious.

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

Very nice quiet place for breakfast this Sunday morning. We watched the squirrels play and hummingbirds. Food was good and staff very friendly.

We only ate here at lunch, the service was super friendly and the view of the squirrel was entertaining,. There was a lunch buffet, which we passed on, I had an open faced roast beef sandwich, and my daughter had a BLT sandwich, which she said was good. Mine was okay, on bread, also came with a roll and potatoes,... More

The Skillet is on top of a mountain in the Ozarks! The views are stunning, the staff is friendly and the food is delicious! Located in the Ozarks Folk Center State Park, the prices are reasonable and surroundings are quaint. If you are in the area, you owe it to yourself to check it out.

We have eaten here several times and won't be going again [ unless our friends drag us there ]. The buffet is unimaginative ! The food stays the same from week to week and is usually served at about room temperature ! They apparently have too few servers. About all the servers have to offer is to warm up your... More

Fantastic service and delectable dining. Staff that go above and beyond to give you a taste of culturally eclectic foods from an era that can't be forgotten. Such care in preparation and windows from every side of the restaurant give the visitor to view wildlife frolicking in the woods beyond as the sit and eat wonderfully delicious delicacies.
