We live in the Portland metro area and everybody knows PDX's motto is "Keep Portland Weird" meaning weird in a good way. Homeskillet would fit right in with the best of PDX's restaurants & cafes. Their corn beef hash is the best I can ever remember having. I read some bad reviews on the staff, all I can tell you... More

If you are looking for a fast food chain don't bother to stop here. It is NOT that for sure. Be warned you will likely have to wait for a table because it is a busy place but it is more than worth the wait. Food is excellent and the décor is like nothing you have ever seen. Be sure... More

Prepare to wait as food is cooked fresh. We put our name on the self serve waiting list and then waited outside in the funky painted chairs and benches. The wait was definitely worth it. Coffee is strong, the corned beef hash was crispy, oily and served hot. The Mexican skillet was served in a cast iron skillet so food... More

Was a most excellent place to eat breakfasts are a high light and it is worth the wait , should you catch the late breakfast early lunch crowd. Be patient.

The food is AMAZING. The people are GREAT. The decor is FUN and the prices are Perfect!!! The only complaint is the size of the seating area. I wished it was larger for bigger seating capacity. You have got to try this place, it is off the charts good!!! The variety of homemade foods and salsas are Excellent!!! Portions are... More

We love the food at Home Skillet. It is at the top of our list whenever we are in Bellingham. However, make sure you have time. They are very up front that they do not offer "fast food" but quality food. We were there on a Thursday morning at 8:30 a.m. and the tables were about half full. It took... More

The restaurant is small and quirky looking inside and out in an industrial area. The parking lot is extremely small with only one enter/exit. We were seated on arrival at a table for 2. Because it's small, your seating is close to others. We were asked on seating if we wanted coffee and it was brought out quickly. He ordered... More

I can't decide which I liked more -- the food, the service or the decor. The food ranges from traditional eggs, potatoes and meat to some eclectic combinations of traditional ingredients. I had eggs and homemade sausage, which was excellent. Nice fresh eggs with flavorful deep yellow/orange yolks, perfectly cooked to over medium, plus tasty homemade patty sausage (and lots... More

I went in expecting an amazing breakfast due to the reviews I had seen. But all in all this place had good, average food. The skillets me and my friends had were tasty but the overwhelming majority of the dish was potato. Granted the potato was cooked deliciously but it isn't what I think of when I consider the best...
