Plenty to love about this homey place. There's nothing fancy about the decor. It was Valentine's Weekend and the place was hopping with mainlanders like us, Breakfast was delicious, and the friendly food server provided helpful suggestions about the Island and places we'd want to see on our short visit.

We brought some friends out to Orcas Island to show them around. We all stopped into Island Skillet for breakfast. Never fails to please! I had the chorizo scramble, to die for! My wife had the mediterreanian skillet, simply fantastic. The coffee is roasted just for them and our friends took a bag of beans home with them. Cannot say... More

The omelet I had here may have been the best omelet I have ever tasted in my life. We sat outside and enjoyed watching people go about their Saturday business in the little town of Eastsound. Delicious food, served quickly.

Young, tall, dark haired male waiter was extremely rude not once but twice within first 3 minutes of walking in door. Walked out before he could say anything else to me and my mother. Completely unacceptable behavior. Asked to speak to a manager but did not have one on duty.

Referred by a local here for breakfast. Small place with big portions. Be patient! The food is made from scratch, per order and they are busy. Impressed with staff who were efficient and professional despite a long line at the door and a few grouch tourists. Not fast food, but the wait is worth it.

We bummed around town killing time and although the guy taking names was a bit snotty my girlfriend went back to let him know we had returned. He said the table wasn't ready yet. she looked... More

During season, people are lined up at this popular eatery for breakfast and brunch. My omelet was gigantic and I was not able to finish it. It was delicious as were the breakfast potatoes that accompanied it. Our only issue was that the server was overwhelmed. Our coffees were not refilled promptly and we never received our promised glasses of... More
