Arriving in Florida for the 4th of July week, the family had been up since 3:30 am to catch an early flight, and the three boys had not eaten so I feared they might attack the air flight attendants for the pretzels, especially the three...year old. We landed in Tampa and made our way to our resort in Clearwater. As we drove to the resort, I heard an awkward noise coming from the rental and it was the noise of the three young ones starving. I observed a non franchise restaurant and pulled over to eat to ensure my three little angels didn't starve to death. Their is plenty of parking in the area and the restrooms are located as you enter the establishment. It was early in the day so breakfast was at hand for the family. We ordered French toast, chicken fried steak and eggs, eggs for the little one, breakfast skillet and my odd ball oldest had a burger. Look this place has a traditional breakfast taste like a Lubbys or Village Inn. Our server was friendly and the food portions were large and tasted good. For $53 and tip it was a good first stop in FloridaMore

Clearwater, FL 01 5/24/2022 I usually go to breakfast with my son twice a month (busy schedules) and we generally go to the Country Skillet. The food was good, and you got a fair amount for what you paid for. Well, that is a thing of the past. They raised their prices and give you less food. We went to breakfast a few days ago and I was shocked. I got my usual, Eggs Benedict. When the Server put my plate down in front of me, I was wondering if this was a child's plate. There was a minimal amount of Hollandaise Sauce, the Canadian Bacon looks like it was shaved and there was about a half cup of Home Fries. I asked for a little extra Hollandaise because the English Muffin would be dry. I got it alright, a very small bowl of it. I am also a coffee drinker, used to be you would get a full carafe of coffee, now you get about half. The owner was making the rounds and I was waiting patiently for him to come over and say, "Hi, how is everything?" Never happened. He breezed right by us and talked to what seemed like all the regulars, because he called them by name. Not good. He should have checked with all his guests. When we got the bill, I was a little appalled at the total. I was charged an additional $2.95 for that miniscule amount of Hollandaise Sauce. I understand that people are in business to make money, but you don't have to skimp on the menu items and raise prices for half the food. Not to mention being ignored completely. If you want people to come back and patronize your establishment, you have to treat ALL of your customers like they matter. I don't recommend going here for any meal. You'll be paying more for less mediocre tasting food. After this visit, we won't be going back.More

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
