Bacon jam, yes please!

I went here for bacon jam. Got it. Loved it on my juicy burger ("The Burger"). Hubby loved "The Basic" burger as well. Sides of fries and lentil stew were also great.

This is a very quaint restaurant with very unique dishes. We ate both dinner and breakfast there and had excellent food and service both times.

Wow... the food here was delicious. A huge heaping plate of french fries, seasoned to perfection. Can't say this was a healthy meal, but that isn't why you go here. My dining companion, my daughter, had a Bailey's milkshake... a lovely, calorie-ridden cocktail on a hot summer day. The service was absolutely spot on. We loved sitting in a booth... More

This place is fun and delicious. Service is excellent. Breakfast is just as good as lunch and dinner. Great drinks. Try the grilled cheese with fried chicken and bacon jam! Heavenly!

So this cozy little spot in Capital hill is one of my new favorites. Burger was cooked exactly as I requested, the bacon jam is straight from God, and they offer "poutine" as a side for everything. The only real gripe I had is the poutine doesn't use Beechers curd. Come on guys... local curd and you can call it... More

They have great creative dishes. Catered a wedding and served pulled bbq pork on a potatoe chip. One bite wonderful. The grilled cheese and bbq pork appetizers were delicious...and chicken sliders with spicy aioli sauce were perfect. In the restaurant the menu is made up of creative flavors.

Inside or outside does not matter much for the service which usually is great. Went there with large groups or smaller ones or as a couple and constantly very good.

This was our last breakfast while in Seattle and it was perfect. The place is nice and bright, and the service is friendly and energetic. Husband enjoyed the pancakes and I had the grits and peek belly... So yummy!

The place is hopping at all hours. Imaginative twists on old diner faves. Generous servings. Great location in lively pike-pine corridor. Staff are fun and friendly.

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!
