We were driving home from our vacation when we stopped by for Brinner or "breakfast for dinner". The atmosphere was very homey, and it was very clean. We were seated quickly and served up some great sweet tea. We ordered a ham and cheese omelet...with potatoes, a dinner salad, and a cheeseburger. It was all good and really hit the spot after all those chain restaurants in Orlando. Sometimes, you just need an omelet for dinner. hahaha The staff seemed to know all the customers very well. Our waitress, Tina checked on us often and even chatted with us about our trip. We will be back soon.More

My wife, Bonnie, and I visited the Country Skillet, Saturday, 4/10/21, for Breakfast, which is also served through lunch. Our waitress, Bella, as always, is the "Best"--a "Pro." Quick, efficient, knowledgeable and great "sense of humor." The food is always delicious, plentiful, and on-time. Great...decor, great at Christmas season, inside-and-out. The Owner & his Son are very congenial and appreciative of your business. So, check it out; I believe that you will enjoy the experience. Plus, as mentioned above, have Bella serve you!More

We stopped by here for lunch while running errands in the area. The location appeared to be clean and fairly well-maintained with ample off-street parking. The staff were all professional and friendly and while they were wearing face masks, most wore them only over their...mouths and not their noses. The corned beef hash my wife had was homemade and she said it was very good. My turkey club was also very good though it is made with thinly sliced deli turkey and not freshly sliced turkey. My side salad was larger than what you get at most restaurants. All in all, I would recommend this place for a good meal however, their sanitation and COVID protocols could be tightened up a bit.More

Visiting family in the area. Looking for Sunday morning breakfast. The Country Skillet was not disappointing. We were shown a table immediately. I had the New Orleans French Toast. Oh, my goodness! Thick slices of French toast topped with strawberries, bananas, pralines and whipped cream....It was absolutely delicious. Not overwhelming like you might think. Just delicious. Others enjoyed scrambled eggs, bacon, home fried potatoes and omelets. All were enjoyed immensely. The coffee was continually refilled. Our waitress was Isabella. She was a great waitress. Answered our questions with a smile and was very friendly. Our wait was short for our food. Did I tell you the restaurant had a large among of customers? The restaurant was clean and the restrooms were clean. The prices were very reasonable.More

My family of 6 was in town visiting Clearwater Beach for a week in Aug during Covid. We were looking for a great all day breakfast place and boy did we luck out with this place! The waitresses were sooo nice. Very friendly and helpful....Everything was clean and they were so great with my kids. My 4 sons (15 yrs and under) each found something they wanted becuase the variety and selections were many on the menu. The Monte Cristo Sandwhich was perfect. Biscuits and Gravy with eggs, devine. We had pancakes and all the sides and man, it was so good. I was honestly surprised. After all the meals we spent tons of money on down by beach, THIS was the best home cooked type feast. Fresh and fast! Wow! Thank you to all the employees who took care of my UTAH family. We felt your southern hospitality!!More

Thank you so much! It is one of my favorite dishes. We use a fresh natural Brioche, and make it with farm fresh eggs heavy whipping cream, Madagascar vanilla. So good that many don’t even use syrup anymore.
