Skillet was a nice place to eat for our first time in Seattle. The food was delicious and creatively prepared. So many choice on the menu! I look forward to coming back to try more of their dishes! We had breakfast here before our flight back and it kept us full so we didn't have to eat that awful airplane... More

Although it's called a diner, it's really several steps above that. It is healthy and upscale at the same time, and the food is delicious. As a kale lover, I was really impressed. Not only was my salad a delicious, heaping mound of fresh chopped kale, my dinner came breaded, gluten-free and resting on another helping of kale. The napkin... More

The four of us each ordered something different. #1 favorite was the fried chicken. I had the rock fish, cheese grits, and greens. Fish and grits were tasty. Greens were on the vinegary side. Very tart. All of us nearly froze seated by a window and back door. Dress warmly in the winter.

We went there for breakfast/brunch. After 25 minutes our table was ready. The place was busy but the staff were attentive, efficient and courteous. Bloody Marys and Mimosas were good. They do some wild stuff with eggs by mixing in a lot of ingredients so in a way, it is like a meal in itself. For the amount of traffic,... More

This Capitol Hill mainstay is a cool spot with excellent albeit highly caloric breakfats. You say no breakfast right? Well bacon jam is certainly breakfats and excellent as well. Our breakfast here was delicious although very bacon heavy, perhaps too much so for my wife. Excellent high-quality, locally-sourced ingredients make for interesting combinations and its an interesting place to go,

Our party of 5,recently had breakfast at the Skillet Diner. You will not be disappointed ! Make sure to stop by on a Saturday or Sunday to take advantage of their homemade cinnamon rolls and freshly made donut holes . Will be back if ever in the Seattle area again 😊

Loved the outdoor seating. A couple cocktails (try the old fashion) and people watch all afternoon. The hill is the best atmosphere ever!

The outdoor seating here is great in the summer: sun, a little breeze off the hill and a few tall trees for shade. The bacon jam is divine and a must take-home. Service and coffee are fantastic!

Good lunch at a decent price. Many unique menu items. Wait staff was very friendly. The large water bottles were a nice touch. Would recommend.
