I love fresh food with a sense of humor

I had a half hour to kill at the Seattle Center and I was hungry. I loved my experience at the Skillet. I had "the burger" and they made it gluten free by putting it over beautiful greens. I loved the bacon jelly and cheeses on it. With my burger I also had an order of fries (perfect) and an... read more

We came here for lunch and I had the breakfast burrito. It took quite a long time to get it. They were a little busy but not swamped by any means. I was disappointed in the burrito as it was pretty bland. On the positive side, the size was generous, so I took half of it home and ate it... More

Stopped here after getting off the Monorail for the Space Needle. We were in need of food & gave here a try. OMG!! The food was outstanding & all the plates, cutlery etc. were recyclable. Please, if you are ever in Seattle, give it a try!!

If you are taking the monorail by the Space Needle, stop in for a nosh. Live music, food court, coffee, crepes, bagels, nuts, kabobs, ... And live music. This restaurant was excellent. Lots of excellently prepared choices for a food court.

There is not a long list of items to choose from - which is a good thing for grabbing a quick bite. I have had their basic burger a few times which i enjoyed quite a bit. It is a tad expensive but not ridiculously so. I also love their fries

AMAZING breakfast sandwich and friendly people! AND everything that they use to serve it, and we used to eat was compostable.

This place is located in the Seattle Armory Building right at the end of the Seattle Monorail. We (wife and myself) ordered a quick breakfast here to start our day of site seeing in the Seattle Center. That's where the Space Needle is among many other attractions. The cook here went out of his way to make something my wife... More

The Armory has a large number of food outlets and this worked well as I was able to get my lunch from an alternative whilst my wife enjoyed the selection on offer. If visiting I actually recommend taking a walk round all the food outlets to see what is on offer before making a final choice as you may see... More

Between museums, we entered the Armory and was surprise to see all the great options. Glad we tried Skillet. Both the fried chicken sandwich and salad and the waffle chicken sandwich (sinful) were fresh and delicious. I agree with other reviews that the service was a bit dry but the food more than made up for it.

We just happened in here, late in the afternoon after visiting the space needle, having had no lunch, but too close to dinner to eat much. We wanted a glass of wine and a snack. Boy did we luck out! I don't know if it was the counter guy, chef, manager or owner who was there that day, but he... More
