We go to this restaurant for breakfast about once a month. The food is good, friendly service and decent portions. Their lunch menu is pretty standard but also very good and nice portions. I usually order salads and am never disappointed

Aloha Trippers! Okay, so a place that is packed when you get there is probably pretty darned good, right? But a place that has a wait list and a line out the door... is something else entirely. Well, this is the latter and if you're hungry for breakfast, you might want to go grab a latte at your favorite coffee... More

This place is really popular for weekend breakfast and brunch. The portions are large and the prices reasonable, but I and people I've gone with have consistently found the food to be fairly mediocre. Dishes like Huevos Rancheros that should have some complex flavor are really lacking in character. There's nothing wrong with the food, it's just not very interesting.... More

We discovered this place a couple of years ago and go about once a week. The staff are terrific and the meals are outstanding.

The best breakfast there is in Martinez! Good food and service at reasonable prices. The atmosphere is so homey that you feel like you are having breakfast in someone's house.

Calamari Breakfast is just wonderful. You have to go hungry, portion size is big. Calamari was nice and tender. Not greasy, breaded lightly. We live in Crockett it is worth the trip.

We rarely, rarely will enjoy breakfast anywhere else. Since we found Copper Skillet two years ago, we are big fans and regular patrons. The food is always delicious, reliable, fresh. The service is wonderful; we love the staff. The ambiance is just right for a small, local American cafe. If the wait is long, it's worth it it--'cause there's nowhere... More

We had a group of 5 for Sunday afternoon at 2. Not exactly a time to expect high traffic, but they couldn't seat us yet. Very friendly, they begged our indulgence why they tried to assemble something. A 10 minute wait and the friendly staff had us in the back room. Not exactly the place to people watch, but the...

After going to John Muir National Historic Site, we needed a place for lunch and didn't want a chain restaurant. We stopped by the Copper Skillet and had a wonderful meal. I had a huge, overstuffed, and delicious tuna melt, and my wife had a heaping plate of spaghetti. The servings were huge (big enough that we were able to... More

We got there right before 11am and we were able to take advantage of the breakfast specials. I got the Nr. 3 with 2eggs, bacon and 2 french toasts for a whopping $4.95. It was very good! The service was fast and the restaurant, while small and a little old fashion, had a lot of charm and it was clean.... More
