Great home cooking

The food at Skillet is always great. Sometimes the portions are a bit big, and avoid on weekend mornings. The seattle brunch crowd can get a bit deep (30-45 minute wait). But the cin rolls and scramble are amazing!

This was good. This was very good. I am a vegetarian and that limits my review opportunities. So please take that into account. Being a vegetarian, I know my way around a mac and cheese meal. This was one of the best mac and cheese dishes I have ever had. But first, let's rewind. The Skillet Diner is a diner.... More

Out of all the the hamburgers I have ever eaten, this is one of my favorites. I ordered the Basic Burger with a small side of handcut fries. It was messy but it was delicious! The burger had juicy pickles, a yummy special fries, and fresh lettuce. The Basic Burger had grass fed beef, lettuce, special sauce, American cheese, and... More

Lunch last week for 4 included cobb salad, corned beef hash, grits & belly and a burger. Add 4 beverages at $3 apiece and we ended up with a bill of $66 plus tax - $72.27 not including gratuity. Given their service can often be full of attitude, we thought a return visit would still be great food. We've enjoyed... More

While visiting in Seattle our children took us to Skillet Diner. We heard it was extremely crowded on weekends so we went on a Tuesday morning and there was NO wait. We had a corner table with a nice view and GREAT service. My son ordered Corn Beef Hash, my daughter ordered pancakes, and my husband and I shared the... More

I got the ricotta-masa dumplings and the dish was probably one of the best things I have ordered anywhere! I want to go back and get it again! A little on the spendy side, but well worth it! It was great, very friendly service and a cute spot.

We enjoyed the food, coffee and friendly service for breakfast. We were on Capitol Hill for appointments at Swedish hospital and obviously not regulars, but we felt welcome. The food was similar to breakfast at our hotel (the Silver Cloud) but the coffee was very good and we liked the atmosphere.

Went here for a Saturday breakfast and shared a cinnamon roll with my husband and son. The icing was not too sweet and was very good. Their breakfast potatoes were flavorful. Service was quick and pleasant.
